Windows Defender Firewall or a third-party antivirus can block some functioning of your game and as a result, chances are your Battlefield 2042 settings won’t save. What you need to do is allow the game through the Windows Firewall. If you are using a third-party antivirus, then try whitelisting it, hopefully, this will do the job for you.
2] Run Battlefield 2042 as an administrator
If Battlefield 2042 is not launching as an administrator, it won’t get the privileges required to create folders and save files on your computer. What you need to do is either open the launcher aka Steam as an administrator or change the settings of the Launcher such that it will launch with the required permissions. To just open the game in elevated mode, just right-click on the Launcher and click Run as administrator.
You can also change the settings to always open Battlefield 2042 as an administrator. Follow the given steps to do the same.
- Right-click on Steam and select Properties.
- Go to the Compatibility tab.

Hopefully, this will do the job for you.
3] Delete Temporary Files
Sometimes, the previously saved game files get corrupted, which as a result will stop the new files from forming. We need to remove the temporary file or at least rename it (for backup). So, open File Explorer, go to Documents, and then to Battlefield 2042. Now, open the Settings folder, right-click on PROFSAVE_tmp, select Rename, and remove “_tmp”.
Finally, restart the computer and the game. Hopefully, it will do the job for you.
4] Verify the integrity of game files
Usually, corrupted files will stop the game from launching on your computer, but sometimes, they do trigger these peculiar issues. You can use the launcher to scan and repair the files. Follow the given steps to do the same.
- Open Steam.
- Go to LIBRARY.
- Right-click on the game and click Properties.
- Go to the LOCAL FILES tab and click VERIFY THE INTEGRITY OF GAME FILES.
Wait for the process to complete, as it will scan and repair your game.
5] Troubleshoot in Clean Boot

Hopefully, these solutions will be resolved with the solutions that we have mentioned earlier.
