Many Battlefield 2042 players have complained about getting false positive bans. This is a very frustrating issue. Let’s discuss what causes the game’s anti-cheat system to trigger the ban, and how to dispute it.
What causes false bans in Battlefield 2042?
Easy Anti-Cheat may sometimes label compatibility issues with various software as cheating and ban you without a warning. It seems that Corsair’s iCue and other programs developed by Corsair may sometimes cause Battlefield 2042 false bans.
Gamers noticed that iCue was tagged as cheating if used for changing the screen lightning settings beyond what EA devs intended for the gameplay. Many players suspect this could influence certain in-game parameters and that’s what’s triggering the false bans.
