One of the most common issues in Battlefield 2042 on PC right now is DirectX "GetDeviceRemovedReason" crashing error that happens on both AMD and Nvidia GPUs.

The DirectX function "GetDeviceRemovedReason" in Battlefield 2042 happens mostly to AMD GPU owners but in some instances, Nvidia GPU owners are not safe either.

Before you try to fix the issue, keep in mind that these solutions below work only for some players, meaning that there is no common fix that is almost certain to work. You will likely need to wait for AMD and DICE to release a new update, that will hopefully, fix the problem for most players.
