Playing Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0 by yourself  is fun but doing it with friends is more thrilling. Just like in life, sharing joys is more entertaining in WArzone when you’re with friends, family, or even with strangers!

If you are new to Warzone 2.0 and you have no idea how to add friends so they can join your channel or your party, this guide is for you. In this one, we’ll show you how to add friends in Warzone 2.0 easily.

How to add friends in Warzone 2.0?

There are different ways to invite friends in Warzone 2.0 depending on your device or launcher you’re using. PC players need to select whether they install the game via Steam or Battle.net so the exact steps vary depending on which platform they’re on. 

The same can be said if you’re playing Warzone 2.0 on a console (PlayStation or Xbox).

How to add friends in Warzone 2.0 with Activision ID.

The easiest way to add friends in Warzone 2.0, especially if you play the game in more than 2 devices, is by going into your Activision account. Obviously, you need to make sure first that you have an Activision ID. If you don’t have one at the moment, make sure to create one first before following our instructions.

Once you’ve created your Activision ID, you need to use that to log in to Warzone 2.0.

Using your Activision ID to invite friends can be done in both the PC and console versions of Warzone 2.0. All you have to do is to go into the game Settings menu and click on Account and Network. From there, click on ACTIVISION ACCOUNT option to link your new Activision account first. Then, click on ACTIVISION ACCOUNT again so you’ll see your game name. 

At this point, you want to take note of your Activision ID by clicking on the box beside your name with the plus sign (+) inside it.

After copying your Activision ID, you can then go ahead and share that to your friends so they can invite or add you to their party.

If you want to invite or add friends instead, you can go back to the Home screen and click on the Social Menu icon. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Go to the Home screen of Warzone 2.0.
  2. Click on the Menu icon at the upper right.
  3. Select the SOCIAL tab.
  4. Click on ADD FRIENDS.
  5. Enter your friend’s Activision ID in the Activision ID field.
  6. Click on SEND REQUEST.

If you mainly play on Steam, another easy way to invite friends easily in Warzone 2.0 is by using your Steam ID. Unlike the first method, you don’t need to go into Warzone’s Settings menu to do this. Instead, you only need to open the Steam launcher and add players from there.

The second approach involves sending a quick invite link. This link can be delivered by email, text message, or via chat app.

To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Steam app.
