    • Open the AntiCheat folder
    • Run the EasyAntiCheat_Setup executable file
    • Press Repair
  • Your next step is to verify the integrity of the game files:
    • Load Steam
    • From the Library section, right-click on the game and select Properties from the menu
    • Select the Local files tab and click Verify integrity of game files…
    • You'll need to wait for a few minutes for this process to complete

Other Steps To Try

There are a few other suggestions that are worth trying as well, should the above fail to fix the Back 4 Blood Easy Anti-Cheat Error.

  • See if you have a program called Webroot Antivirus installed. This software is apparently not compatible with Easy Anti-Cheat, so in order to run the game, this would need to be uninstalled.
  • As a general principle with Antivirus and Firewalls, they can often block anti-cheat software. So make certain that Easy Anti-Cheat is added to the safe list of your Antivirus and/or Firewall.
  • Make sure all your drivers are fully updated.
  • You could also try to grant Back 4 Blood administrator privileges. To do this:
    • Right click the game in your Steam Library.
    • Go to Properties then the Local Files tab.
    • Click Browse Local Files.
    • Locate the game executable (the application).
    • Right click it and go to Properties.
  • Click the Compatibility tab.
  • Check the Run this program as an administrator box.
  • Click Apply.
  • A final potential fix that has been floated online, is to have the Epic Games launcher running in the background, before launching Back 4 Blood. We don't know how effective this is, but it's worth a try if all else fails.

If nothing seems to work, contact the developers for additional advice. You can reach them @back4blood on Twitter, or via their website, where you can report a bug.
