Dauntless How to Add Friends on PS4 & Xbox Consoles

Adding friends in Dauntless can be a tough task if you’re playing on a console. Since the game has to be played in squads, you’ll probably want to play with people you know instead of random strangers you found wandering the hub. On PC, this is pretty straightforward. However, the console version of the game has a bug that’s making this more difficult than it’s supposed to be. This guide will show you how to add friends in Dauntless on console.

How to add people to friends list in Dauntless?

When you open up the social menu, you’ll see an expandable sub-menu that’s supposed to lead to your console’s friends list. However, it isn’t working at the moment. When you click on it, nothing happens. If you want to add people to your friends list, you’ll have to go to the “Add Friends” tab and enter their Epic username. This is important. You can’t find them using the Playstation or Xbox usernames.

Once you’ve added them to the list, they’ll appear in the Epic Friends section of the first tab, and you’ll be able to invite them into your squad that way. The bug is bound to be corrected at some point in the near future, but until then, you’ll have to make do with your EGS account friends list.

Having a steady squad to play with can be a life-saver, especially as you get further into the game. The later behemoths can be pretty difficult, and you’ll need to have a sound strategy, as well as good communication. Although it can be achieved with a team of random internet strangers, it is much easier with a crew of regulars. Plus, it’s way more fun to play with people you already know and like.

    God, that problem what exactly what i was searching for, it’s the reason why me and my friends wouldn’t try to play it further, but knowing the solution now makes it playable again

      You should have an Epic Games display name that you created when you linked your Epic, Dauntless, PS4 accounts at Playdauntless.com/link. It may or may not be the same as your PS username. E.g. my PS username has no space between the names, but my Epic username does. (you just reminded me of that. Thx 🙂 )

    My switch and ps4 hand no problems playing together through epic game names. Now trying to add my other ps4 to the mix, its all failing. From switch it says my main ps4 guy in offline now, but says hes online in guild and i cant find the other ps4 on either. Every think i find online is almost a year old

      I had to use my switch as a middle man. The switch cant see the ps4 accounts. So when i played with the switch it was only because the ps4 account can add the switch to stuff. But the switch or other ps4 cant find ps4 accounts. Its like they are all offline. When i started dauntless I skipped linking accounts and let it create the account names for me. It used the same name as my ps4 username. It did not do this for switch. I assumed it was because my switch uses the name lazarus and it was taken by the time i got to dauntless. It used another name i made up which i found weird because i didnt type it in, it was already typed in, maybe from another epic game?

        So far the ps accounts seem offline to my switch but both can see switch and inv to anything. Cant inv the ps4 accounts to the switch party or each other but both can add the switch. So the ps4s added the switch to friends but from switch side they are offline. Played so smooth playing together even if i joined the switch’s party. But i had to join it manually or inv the switch to my party. Seems like the switch account is working fine and i have 2 ps4 accounts that are not

          So once my ps4s were in the hunt party via switch they were able to add each other and now all around friends and online status all in guild through epic names. Iono what happened or if each step was a coincidence but it all works now after 2 days of trying and bringing in a switch my ps4s now play together. Now to get my other kid in on this via cpu. If this works ill have a full in house squad. #familyhunt
