This Destiny 2 Crossplay Guide will take you through how to invite and play with friends on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation consoles so you can complete your Fireteam regardless of the platform you and your friends play on.
Bungie’s ever-popular FPS live service game just got a new life with Destiny 2: The Witch Queen. The latest expansion adds a ton of new story content, loads of exotic gear, new power caps to grind, and an all-new raid coming next week. That’s a lot of content, and while you can have fun playing the game alone, it’s much more fun with friends.
As such, you’ll need to know what’s wrong with Destiny 2’s cross-platform play. Fortunately, it’s relatively straightforward as long as you know what you’re looking for, specifically your Bungie name and how to manage and send cross-play invites.
Find your Bungie name
The first thing you’ll need to experience Destiny 2 Crossplay is your Bungie name. This is a unique name for your Bungie account, consisting of your first platform account that players log in with, as well as a unique 4-digit numeric identifier.
You can find this on the login screen after the title screen or in the ‘List’ section of the Director. In the screenshot below, you can see that my Bungie name is ‘Crispyleeks #2746’, so that’s what I want to share with friends on other platforms.
Alternatively, go to your Director and go to the ‘Roster’ screen. You can then hover over your name on the left side of the screen to reveal your Bungie name here.
Adding friends playing on PC, Xbox and PlayStation
- Go to your Director’s ‘Roster’ screen.
- Select the envelope icon on the left side of the screen to access the Destiny 2 Crossplay invite and request menus.This allows you to see your Fireteam invites from players on other platforms, friend requests from Bungie where you will accept cross-play invites, and invites from clans.
- Enter the Bungie name of the player you want to play Destiny 2 with on another platform.Remember that you will also need the four-digit unique ID.
- To accept friend requests from players on other platforms, simply select them from the Bungie Friend Requests column and select the ‘Accept’ option.
Inviting players on other platforms with Destiny 2 Crossplay
Now that you’ve accepted each other’s Bungie friend requests, simply go to your friends list within the Director’s List screen again and select your name from the list.
Select the ‘Invite to Fireteam’ option and ask them to accept your invitation.
