While Battlefield 2042 is an engaging and immersive game, players looking to enjoy it on the Steam Deck will face some challenges. Directly installing and playing Battlefield 2042 on the Steam Deck isn't supported by EA, primarily due to compatibility issues with the game's anti-cheat system. However, there are workarounds for those determined to experience Battlefield 2042 on this portable platform.

Why It's Not Directly Supported

Anti-Cheat Compatibility: The primary reason EA doesn't support Battlefield 2042 on Steam Deck is due to the game's anti-cheat system, which isn't compatible with the Steam Deck's native operating system (SteamOS).

Workaround 1: Installing Windows on Steam Deck

One viable workaround is to install Windows on your Steam Deck. This process allows you to bypass the compatibility issues with the game's anti-cheat system.

Steps to Install Windows on Steam Deck

  1. Prepare a Bootable Windows USB Drive: Using another computer, create a bootable Windows installation USB drive.
  2. Enter the Steam Deck's BIOS: Boot your Steam Deck into BIOS mode to allow booting from the USB drive.
  3. Install Windows: Follow the standard Windows installation process, selecting the bootable USB as the installation source.

Note: Installing Windows on Steam Deck can be a bit complex and may affect the device's default functionalities. It's recommended for users who are comfortable with potential risks and tech-savvy enough to troubleshoot.

Workaround 2: Cloud Gaming Services

Another less technical solution is to use cloud gaming services that support Battlefield 2042. Services like GeForce Now or Xbox Cloud Gaming (if available for Battlefield 2042) allow you to stream the game on your Steam Deck.

Steps to Use Cloud Gaming

  1. Subscribe to a Cloud Gaming Service: Choose a service that offers Battlefield 2042 and create an account.
  2. Install the Service’s App: If the service has a dedicated app for Steam Deck or a compatible browser version, install or access it on your device.
  3. Play Battlefield 2042: Log into your account within the app and start playing Battlefield 2042 streamed to your Steam Deck.


While playing Battlefield 2042 directly on the Steam Deck isn't supported due to EA's anti-cheat compatibility issues, enthusiastic players can still enjoy the game by installing Windows on their Steam Deck or utilizing cloud gaming services. Each method has its pros and cons, so it's essential to choose one that aligns with your technical comfort level and gaming preferences.
