Warzone 2.0 it’s been out for a few days, and it’s a good time once you get past the hardest part of the game: Navigating a UI that looks like it was coded in the fires of digital hell.

Modern War II and Warzone 2.0 (and DMZ mode) are all accessed from the same launcher. While that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it does make for a pretty tiring mess. It gets even more confusing if you haven’t paid MII and if you’re doing it on PC and you’re trying to play cross-platform, you’re having fun with people who are doing it. Rest assured, you don’t have to part with $70 to play battle royale mode with your friends. Here are ways to get totally connected with friends for free Warzone 2.0.

To repeat, you do not need to buy MII play king of war. Don’t panic (or buy the game) if you see this error:

How to join friends via crossplay and on PC

Take a nice, deep breath. Everything will be fine. Warzone 2.0 it doesn’t make it easy to figure out how to connect to a friend on a different platform, especially if you haven’t bought one Modern War II.

First, you need to find your Activision ID. If you are in the menus for both Modern War II or Warzone 2.0, you have one in ten. Go to the social tab in the game’s main menu, found in the top right corner.

Here you will see the people currently in your party, as well as the operator you have selected. Select “View My Profile” from this menu and you will see your Activision ID on the right side of the screen. It’s similar to a format like Discord, if you’re familiar with it: Username, a # sign, and a set of numbers.

This is the name you will use to befriend people. Once you know the Activision ID of the person you want to befriend and team up with, go back to the original social menu and click on the Friends tab. Click “Add Friends” and enter your Activision ID there. If everything is correct, your friend will receive a friend invite (check the bell icon in the top right for a notification if you missed it.)

With the addition of a friend out of the way, it’s time to get into the squad. As mentioned above, if you haven’t bought it Modern War IITo accept someone’s party invitation, you must enter the battle royale menu. Scroll down and select DMZ or Battle Royale (whichever mode you want to play) and load into that particular menu pattern. If you see “Battle Royale” in the upper left corner of the main menu, you’ll know you’re in the right place. Send and accept friend invites with non-owning players Modern War II from here and only from here.

If you’ve sent an invite before and the player can’t join because it’s not in the right menu, there are a few other options in the menu to send a new invite, but most of the time it’s locked (apparently you can’t sometimes). send multiple invitations to the same person). If you have this problem, just quit Call of Dutyrestart the game, go to the battle royale menu, and then send an invite or request.


Are you feeling tired? Yes, me too. It’s 2022 and the menus are harder than the games they officially launch. But don’t let it Warzone 2.0 cheat you Modern War II if you don’t want to. Now gather a gang and cause trouble on purpose.
