Fallout 76 Nuclear Winter: How to Invite Friends

Haven't figured out how the friend invite system works in Nuclear Winter? It's easier than you think to play a battle royale match with your buddies!

There was never any doubt that Fallout 76 would eventually get a battle royale mode. PUBG and Fortnite guaranteed that every major title would eventually get one. However, playing with randoms isn't as fun as playing with friends. That's why you need to know how to invite them. 

Although the process isn't super intuitive, there is an easy way to invite friends to your team in Nuclear Winter. Let's dive in and get started!

Playing Nuclear Winter With Friends

Invite friends via the social option on the main menu

Rather than joining a match and then inviting people to the lobby, you have to get all your friends on your online team first.

To get started, go to the Social option on the main menu and scroll through the list of available friends. Make sure any of the friends you want to invite are also on the main menu screen somewhere if you want this to work.

Click the name of your friend and then choose the Invite To Team option at the top of the pop-up menu. Wait for the friend to accept the invite, at which point the Play option on the main menu changes to Play With Team to let you know you've got a team up and running.

Repeat the process with however many other people you want to invite to your team, then just choose "Play With Team" to start a Nuclear Winter match.
