If you’re a newer player or even a seasoned veteran, you may not know how to add or play with your friends. The game doesn’t outline it that well, so some users are confused when they get to the in-game lobby. So, today we’ve got a guide that goes over how to add other players and team up with them in Free Fire

First off, you’ll need to know your in-game ID and your friend’s in-game ID. This is just the username that appears in the top-left corner of the game’s lobby. Once you have that information, look for the human icon with a plus sign on the right side of the lobby screen.

This is where you’ll add friends by their Free Fire ID. Type in their name, then press “Add Friend.” If you’ve typed in the ID correctly, your friend will receive a request to add you to their friends list. This will pop up as a notification in the lobby if someone tries to add you. 

You can also add friends by their Facebook nickname if that’s the route you want to take. Of course, this requires that you also have your Facebook connected with Free Fire.

Either way, once you’ve added a friend, they’ll appear on your friends list, and you can click on their name to invite them to your lobby. If you’re playing with just one other person, you can play Duos, and if you have more than that, you’ll need to play Squads. You can change the game mode you’re playing in the top right of the lobby screen.
