Battlefield 2042 early access open beta is ongoing. The beta has some errors and bugs, which is expected given it’s the whole purpose of the beta, but the gameplay is awesome. By default, the game has Crossplay enabled. So, as you boot to play, you will find yourself playing with other players on all the other platforms. Some players may want this feature disabled for a range of reasons.
For one, the Crossplay feature often triggers bugs, not just in Battlefield but most games that have this feature initially face matchmaking issues. The other reason you may want to disable the Crossplay is to avoid cheaters.
Playing with players on your platform reduces the chances of cheaters and if you are on console, playing with other console players might be the right step to avoid cheaters in the game. So, if you are wondering how to disable Crossplay in Battlefield 2042, keep reading and we will show you how.
How to Disable or Turn off Crossplay in Battlefield 2042
Besides the above reason to disable Crossplay, playing the game using a controller is not the best for FPS games. You can avoid this obvious disadvantage by choosing to not play the game against PC players. Disabling the Crossplay will allow you that. Here is what you need to do to turn off the feature in Battlefield 2042.
- Launch the game and get to the Mode selection screen
- Click on ‘Options’ at the bottom left corner of the screen
- Go to the ‘General’ tab, and the first two options under ‘Other’ is Cross-Play
- Turn Off both Cross-Play options
Once you have followed and disabled the Cross-Play feature from the settings, the game will start matching you with only players on the same platform as yours. If you want to enable the feature, you can return to the same menu and do it. At the time, the game does not support a keyboard and mouse for the console, so the best option is to turn off the Crossplay.
