Steam Issues Refunds for Battlefield 2042 Despite Exceeded Playtime

After revealing its initial trailer and short gameplay, battlefield 2042 had all the hype behind it. It was released to successful reviews, but they soon turned sour. Unfortunately, the game was plagued with issues such as mouse input laghorizontal mouse not workingerror code 2002g, and Direct X issues, to name a few. Players eventually started asking for refunds. However, if you have played the game for more than 2 hours, you cannot refund it on Steam.

The good news for players is that Steam is giving all Battlefield 2042 players an option to refund as the game seems to be “broken.” This is quite similar to the Cyberpunk 2077 fiasco when it was pulled from the PS Store, and refunds could be claimed at any time.

Players Now Able to Claim Refunds for Battlefield 2042 on Steam

Steam Giving Refunds to Battlefield 2042 Players

Steam is most likely aware of the “broken” nature of the game. Players are incredibly frustrated with it despite all the initial hype. As aforementioned, usually, you would have to meet specific requirements to be eligible for a refund.

However, Steam is making an exception to its rules for Battlefield 2042. Some players have reported that their first refund request got declined.

If you are also facing any issues playing the game, we suggest that you refund it. Steam will most likely accept your refund request and process it.


Unfortunately, Battlefield 2042 did not live up to the expectations of players. We hope that the devs will fix all of these issues, but the damage has already been done. It’s a shame, too, because there was a lot of potential in the game as it offered new features like improved weapon customizationgliders, and an all-new Specialist system.

Let us know in the comments below if you managed to get a refund from Steam.
