  1. Create an Embark ID here: https://id.embark.games/id/sign-in if you don’t have one. If you already have an Embark ID, log in to your account with the same link.

2. Stop any VPN or proxy services

The TFLA0002 error code in The Finals can also be a network connection error, so if you’re using any VPN or proxy services on your computer, please stop doing it now.

To tell if you’re using any VPN is quite easy, just check the status bar on the lower-right corner of your computer desktop.

To see if you’re using any proxy services online, you can use this website: http://www.whatismyproxy.com/, which will tell you if you’re using any proxy, and if so, the proxy’s detailed information.

If stopping VPN and/or proxies doesn’t help to solve the TFLA0002 error code in The Finals, please move on.


3. Use a wired network connection instead of a wireless one

Apart from the account authentication problem, the TFLA0002 error code in The Finals can also be caused by an unstable network connection environment. So to fix it, you can try to use a more stable wired network connection (with an Ethernet cable) instead of Wi-Fi to see if it helps.

Here are some other network connection suggestions that you can try:

  • Reduce the number of devices connected to the same router so as to make sure that your main computer gets the most speed.
  • Play on your local server. If that’s not an option, choose one that is closest to you.
  • Update your router firmware if you haven’t already.
  • In your router settings, try to enable QoS to prioritize gaming traffic. If you’re not sure where to find it, please visit your router’s official website to find the manual or seek help from your ISP.

If switching to a wired network connection still doesn’t do to help fix the TFLA0002 error code in The Finals, please move on.


4. Verify game files

Corrupted or missing files will cause connection or authentication problems like the TFLA0002 error code in The Finals. To see if this is the case, you can verify your game files on Steam:

  1. Launch Steam.
  2. In the LIBRARY, right-click on The Finals and select Properties from the drop-down menu.

5. Reinstall The Finals

If verifying the game files doesn’t help to fix the TFLA0002 error in The Finals, there are probably other corrupted or missing system files when the game is installed. In that case, we suggest you reinstall The Finals altogether. Given that The Finals is installed via Steam, you’ll need to uninstall Steam for it to be reinstalled. To do so:

This process will remove Steam and any installed game content from your machine.
  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows key and R key at the same time. Type control panel and hit Enter.
  2. View by Categories, then select Uninstall a program under Programs.
  3. Select Steam, then click the Uninstall button to remove it.
  4. Download the latest version of Steam and then double-click the file you downloaded to reinstall it.

Then download The Finals again on Steam, and see if the TFLA0002 error code is gone. If the problem still remains, please move on to the next troubleshooting method.


6. Repair corrupted and damaged system files

If you are facing persistent issues with The Finals and none of the previous solutions have proven effective, it’s possible that your corrupted system files are to blame. To rectify this, repairing the system files becomes crucial. The System File Checker (SFC) tool can assist you in this process. By executing the “sfc /scannow” command, you can initiate a scan that identifies problems and repairs missing or corrupted system files. However, it is important to note that the SFC tool primarily focuses on scanning major files and may overlook minor issues.
