Battlefield 2042 crashes: Try this quick fix first

Over the past three days, Battlefield 2042 has been crashing to desktop constantly for me. I assumed there was nothing I could do but wait for the first patch, but there might’ve been an easy fix all along: If Battlefield 2042 is crashing or freezing, try using the “verify integrity of game files” tool on Steam. 

In Steam you can find the ‘verify integrity’ button by right clicking on the game in your Library, selecting ‘Properties,’ and navigating to the ‘Local Files’ tab. The tool will check that all of your Battlefield 2042 files match the files you’re supposed to have, and it they don’t, it’ll automatically replace the missing or corrupted data.
