How To Add Friends In Battlefield 2042

Playing Battlefield 2042 is a blast, but having your squad with you takes it to another level. If adding friends seems like a puzzle, here’s how to get it done without the headache.

Locating the Social Tab

First things first, you gotta know where to go. Look at the bottom right of your main menu. That’s where the social tab hangs out. If you’re on PlayStation, nudging the right thumbstick will get you there no problem.

Understanding the EA ID

Understanding the EA ID

Your EA ID is like your gamer ID card for Battlefield. You’ll see it on the main menu, kinda blending in behind where your character stands. To add buddies, you’ll need to swap EA IDs, so make sure you’ve got the right one. If your friend is on the same console, adding them is pretty straightforward, like how you usually would. But for cross-play, when your pals are on different platforms, there’s a bit more to it.

Steps for Adding Friends through Cross-Play

Ready to dive into cross-play? Head over to ‘invitations’ in the social tab and hit up the ‘search for EA ID’ spot. Punch in your friend’s EA ID, and their name should pop up. Sometimes it might not work right off the bat. If that happens, don’t sweat it. There are other ways to connect.

Alternative Methods for Adding Friends on PC

For PC players, if the EA ID search is being stubborn, try using Origin since Battlefield 2042 runs through it. Your EA ID and Origin ID are pretty much the same thing. Just open Origin, go to ‘friends’, then ‘add friend’, and follow what it tells you to do.

Managing Friend Requests and Invites

The ‘invitations’ area is where all the action is. You can see EA party invites, friend requests waiting for your yes or no, and the friend requests you’ve sent out. Once your friend hits accept, you’ll see them under ‘EA friends’ when they’re online.

Interacting with Recent Players

Had a great game and want to team up with someone again? Check the recent players list. If there’s someone you want to add, go for it. On PlayStation, hitting the square button is all you need to do.

Party Management and Game Joining Preferences

Battlefield lets you call the shots on how you want to run your party. You can set your party to ‘private’ or ‘open’, depending on what you’re feeling like.
