Always remember that official support is always the best support. 


If an error message shows up stating “EAC not installed” when you try to launch the game, then it is most likely caused by your anti-virus. To resolve the issue, just disable anti-virus when anti-cheat installs so that it doesn’t interfere with its installation.


This is another problem players may encounter because of their anti-virus’ interference. To resolve the issue, just add EasyAntiCheat to the list of exceptions in your anti-virus program.


If you’re facing an issue where the game crashed every time you try to launch it, then it’s most likely because of an error related to .NET 4.5.2 runtimes. To resolve the issue,  just uninstall .NET from your PC and then download it again.


This is a problem faced by some players where the game crashes whenever they’re at the hero selection screen. To fix this issue, navigate to ‘C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\Fatshark’ and then delete a folder inside called ‘Vermintide 2.’ Although this will fix the issue for you, you will lose all of your settings from the game.

If you cannot find a folder known as ‘Vermintide 2’ then right click the game from your Steam library and select the Beta tab. Next, choose “Slot_data_fix” which will start a small download. This should resolve the issue for you.
