How To Fix Unknown Error In BF2042 Matchmaking
According to EA, they are well aware of the Battlefield 2042 unknown error. Their advice, according to one of their community managers on Twitter, is as follows:
If you've met our friend 'Unknown Error' - Sit Tight.
This isn't on your end, we're just scaling up all of our servers to meet the demand
This may be small crumb of comfort to those who have been suffering. It suggests that eventually, once the servers are all online, that this error will disappear. In the meantime, patience is required.
There is one other suggestion that players have been claiming has worked for them. According to some users, going into settings and turning off crossplay has enabled them to get into a game after a handful of attempts. We don't know for sure that this works, but while we wait for EA, it can't hurt to try.
What causes the Battlefield 2042 Unknown Error?
As indicated above, even though it's called an unknown error, EA seems to know exactly what the issue is. In this instance, the unknown error is a by-product of the servers not yet being up to scale, to meet the demand from the loyal fans of Battlefield 2042.
If you are running into the Battlefield 2042 unknown error, rest assured that EA is working on getting it fixed. With it being a popular title, it was perhaps inevitable that there were going to be some teething issues. The hope is that this one, at least, can be resolved quickly.
