How to Fix the “An Internal Anti-Cheat Integrity Check Failed” Error in The Finals

  • Restart your The Finals, Steam, or platform. While this could be a very basic solution, some people have reported that this solved the issue. Start with The Finals itself, and move to Steam and then your PC or console.
  • Verify game files. Some issues with your local files may be causing problems with verification. Locate The Finals in your Steam Library. Right-click on it and select Properties. Then click on the Installed Files tab and select “Verify integrity of game files.”
  • Disable Crosshair software. The Anti-Cheat software will probably pick up any third-party Crosshair software and determine it as illegal. Disable it and try again.
  • Repair Anti-Cheat software. The Anti-Cheat software itself may become corrupted, so fixing it may allow you to play the game. Locate The Finals in your Steam Library. Right-click on it and select Properties. Then click on the Installed Files tab and select Browse. Run the Easy Anti-Cheat software and click on Repair Service or Repair Easy Anti-Cheat.
  • Update drivers and OS. Compatibility issues may be causing the error to appear. Make sure all your drivers and platforms are up to date.
  • Reinstall the game. Finally, reinstalling the game will certify that any corrupted files or download errors will be fixed.
