Borderlands 3 brings more looter shooter action to our screens, as well as a metric shit-ton of weapons, and plenty of skills and abilities to finetune your Vault Hunter’s build. Of course, playing on your own is cool and all, but it’s a whole lot more fun to play online co-op with friends in Borderlands 3. Here’s how to do exactly that.
How to Play Borderlands 3 in Online Co-Op
There are two ways to invite and play with friends in online co-op. The first way to do this is to use the ‘Social’ menu from either the title screen, or from the Pause menu.
Here, you’ll be greeted with the ‘Roster’ screen, showing all of your friends on your friend list, whether they’re online or not. Simply select the friend you’d like to invite and press X on PS4, A on Xbox One, or confirm it on PC to send your invite.
Now all you need to do is wait for your friend to accept the invitation and they’ll be brought into your world in Borderlands 3.
The other way to play online co-op is to open up the pause menu again, and then simply press Triangle on PS4, Y on Xbox One, or left-clicking on your name in the top right-hand corner.
This will allow you to ‘Edit Group.’ From here, use the d-pad to move over to the plus sign with the people icon and then press X/ A/ left-click, and then select the friend you want to invite from the drop-down list that appears.
What You Should Know About Co-Op Multiplayer in Borderlands 3
It’s worth noting that if your friend joins your game, they’re going to be fighting off enemies and taking on quests at your level. If they’re a much lower level, this might mean they’ll have to be carried for a little bit before they level up.
This can also be a handy way to help you level up fast in Borderlands 3, so be sure to keep any high-level friends particularly sweet!
