How to Enjoy Co-op Multiplayer in Far Cry 6

No one expects you to single-handedly overthrow the dictator and liberate the nation of Yara. While island guerilla fighters and animal Amigos can join your fight, nothing beats having a real person by your side. Previous Far Cry games had different multiplayer modes, including PvP and competitive co-op missions. However, the new Far Cry 6 installment brings back a simple yet robust co-op multiplayer experience.

Unlocking Co-op in Far Cry 6

To dive into multiplayer co-op, you first need to overcome a few hurdles. Once connected, the entire world of Far Cry 6 will open up for your enjoyment, including story-focused missions. If you’re eager to liberate the island with a friend, here’s how to play co-op multiplayer in Far Cry 6.

How to Play Co-op with Friends

If you have a specific friend in mind, simply open your menu and select the “Two Silhouettes” Co-Op icon in the top right corner. From there, choose “Play With A Friend” to access your friends list and invite the person you want to team up with. Once they accept, they will automatically join your game.

How to Play Matchmaking

Far Cry 6 offers two options for playing with a random co-op partner. First, you can use the “Search for a Partner” option in the co-op menu, which will connect you with someone open to joining a game in progress. Second, you can select “Be a Partner” and set yourself as available. This way, you’ll receive a notification when there’s a game you can join, allowing you to seamlessly connect with other players.

Co-op Progression in Far Cry 6

Co-op progression in Far Cry 6 differs depending on whether you’re the host or the joining player. If you’re the host, any progress you make during co-op will be saved, including story mission progress and completed side missions. However, if you join someone else’s game, only a fraction of your progress will carry over, such as supplies, Amigo Abilities, items, guerrilla experience, and upgrades. Consider this when deciding whether to host a match or join another player.

Cross-Play Co-op in Far Cry 6

Unfortunately, Far Cry 6 does not support cross-play for co-op mode. However, it does offer cross-generation play, meaning you can team up with friends on PlayStation 5 and/or PS4, Xbox One and/or Xbox Series X/S, or PC.
