Wuthering Waves: Online multiplayer guide

The passionate Wuthering Waves community is no doubt chomping at the bit to tackle this vast open-world RPG together with friends. Though, remember that you need to be Union Level 22 to start matching with other players of equal or higher level.

If this might seem limiting or frustrating to some, then I'm happy to report that Wuthering Waves is very much designed to be a solo grinding and farming experience, so you shouldn't ever feel stuck. So, Rover – it's time to get playing and level up!

How to invite friends to play co-op in Wuthering Waves

Partying up with your friends to enjoy the best of Wuthering Waves' co-op experience first involves searching for their account IDs and adding them as a friend.

To do so, go to the game's main menu and then over to the Friends section. This will open up the Friends menu, displaying your full friends list. To add a friend, simply look to the bottom right corner of this menu and hit the Add Friend button. You will need to search for them by their User ID (UID) number and then add them.

You can find your unique account ID in the main menu under the Rover's name or on the Friends menu in the bottom left corner.

Once your friend accepts your request, they will show up in your Friends menu. From here, you'll be able to see when they're online and send them requests to either join their game or invite them into your world.

Naturally, the Friends menu also boasts a Blocklist function, should you need to avoid any unpleasant interactions.

How many people can you play online multiplayer with in WuWa?

You can only play with three friends in a lobby, meaning a party's maximum number of members is four (including yourself, of course!).

They say two heads are better than one, and there are certainly major perks to playing co-op in Wuthering Waves. For example, if a particular boss or quest is too high level for you, or you're simply having trouble – you can have a friend (or friends) jump in and help out. Or if you suddenly run out of crucial crafting materials, just hop around different lobbies to make farming materials easier.

Plus, with your friends in tow, you also won't need to continuously swap between different Resonators while playing!
