Fix Error Code 2002G - Battlefield 2042

Here's a potential quick fix for Error Code: 2002G in Battlefield 2042.


Battlefield 2042 is now in the hands of gamers around the globe, and many of those gamers are running into errors and crashes and other problems. One issue that plagues quite a few people is Error Code: 2002G. In this guide, I’ll give you a potential fix that worked immediately for me.

Fix Error Code 2002G Battlefield 2042

To potentially fix Error Code 2002G, disable crossplay in Battlefield 2042. To do this, complete the following steps:

  • Make sure you’re not in a party, even by yourself
  • Select Options
  • Select General
  • Set Cross-Play to Off

It's vital to note that if you are in a party, you will not have the ability to disable crossplay. You must navigate to your party and leave it, at which point the option to disable crossplay will be there. Once you do that, you should hopefully stop getting Error Code: 2002G. This worked immediately for me. Prior to disabling crossplay, I was getting that error message every time I tried to play All-Out Warfare - Conquest. In fact, my entire squad was getting this. We figured it was something to do with our party, but even after all my squad mates departed, I got the error trying to load in solo. Once I disabled crossplay, I was immediately able to join an All-Out Warfare - Conquest match in seconds. It appears EA is having a problem with crossplay when it comes to Battlefield 2042, at least for some players.

Now, I can’t say for sure that Error Code: 2002G is going to be fixed every time by disabling crossplay. The error could very well have a few different causes. If this doesn’t fix it for you, the next step would be to reach out to EA directly via their support page. You could go down the Google rabbit hole as you’ve done to get here, and it’s possible other sites and players can provide further information and fixes. Just be wary of any intrusive fixes that aren’t directly from EA.

      Yeah, this didn't work for me. I'm reinstalling the game and hoping that fixes it. I read at PC Gamer that you can also install under EA launcher beta, but it doesn't show up for me there.

        Try using the EA page in a browser then install it from there which should trigger the launcher to do its thing.

          What do you mean?
          I actually just reinstalled on Origin and now I'm getting the "too many computers have accessed this account's version of Battlefield 2042. Please try again later" message.

            I had an issue with EA Launcher Beta where it wouldn't show me owning the copy and allowing the button to install the game even though I purchased it. But the web page was up to date and I was able to start the install from the browser which opened up the desktop app to install it. I guess whatever browser that's built in to Origin was not getting the right version of the page or hiding the install button.

              I see my library in a browser with regular Origin, but I don't see anything in the EA Launcher. I log in with my profile and it just gives a link to download the launcher, no library.

        It's still working for me about 50 percent of the time. Pretty clear that there are more causes for this error than just crossplay, but crossplay seems to be at least a contributing factor. I'll update the guide as we get more info
