      If you remember their gamertags, going into the headphone tab for party channels and click “invite”, then you can scroll through your recent players list and invite them to ur party.

    They said you have to purchase mw2 to play with friends

      Pay to win, unless you buy the main game you’re always going to be playing with randos. Despite the hundreds of dollars I spent in the WZ1 store that they’re about to wipe out, they need a couple more bucks to make the new game playable.

        It’s true actually. My friend who was initially planning to play Warzone 2 came across the social bug. We couldn’t play with each other and if I sent him a steam invite to the DMZ lobby and clicks on the join button, he gets a message that he needs to purchase MW2 first to join the session.

    Hey guys – IF YOU WANT TO ADD NEW FRIENDS (CROSSPLATFORM) another small workaround, if you have previous COD games or even the previous Warzone, you can login and go to your socials tab and add new friends there through the search. After which you can log back into the game and use the headset icon to invite to your party!!
