Remnant 2 is fantastic as a solo player, but there is no doubt that the game is even better when you can invite friends to join your co-op session. Getting co-op started is fairly easy, even if you need to make some progress first, and I’ll explain the full multiplayer process in this guide.
How to Start Co-op in Remnant 2
Before you can start co-op in Remnant 2, you need to make enough progress in the main story. Once you find the first red crystal in the game, the co-op process can begin, but this could take you around 45 minutes, depending on how fast you move.
To reach the red crystal, you need to complete the first mission, as the game opens with Cass. After you can Cass make it to Ward 13, there will be plenty of NPCs around the Ward that you need to speak with, starting with Ford. After speaking with Ford, he will instruct you to get all the supplies you need, which serves as the tutorial.
Once that is done, you will follow Ford through the original Ward in Remnant 2. This is where you walk through the red crystal, and now you have the opportunity to play co-op on the other side.
How to Invite Friends in Remnant 2
To invite friends, open up the main menu and select the “System” tab on the far right. From here, select the friend you want to invite or join. You can choose to join their world, or a friend can take part in yours. Whichever world you choose will matter.
Inviting Friends in Remnant 2:
- Open up the menu and select the “System” tab.
- Select the Friends option and send an invite.
- Make sure your world is set to “Friends Only” or “Public” for more options.
- You can also invite friends through your current platform as a second route.
The progress of the co-op campaign in Remnant 2 will be based on the host of the world. So if you join a friend’s game, you will be on their progress. None of the story progress you make will transfer to you, but you can save all the items you unlock.
