Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta is supposed to be playable in coop from start to finish. The process of starting a coop game is a bit complicated, so some people are having trouble doing it. Others have managed to find the option, but the game still refuses to let them connect to friends. If you also can’t play co-op, you’ve come to the right place. In this guide, we’re going to help you with the issue of being unable to play co-op in Ghost Recon Wildlands.
How to play co-op in Ghost Recon Wildlands
You’ll need to get into the game before you can engage in co-op. Run it, create your operative, go through the cutscenes. Once you’re in free roam mode, open your inventory. Cycle through the tabs until you get to Lobby – it’s the one all the way to the left. This is where the magic happens. You’ll see a list of names on the screen – your friends who own the game. Place the cursor over a name, and it will let you either join their world, or invite them into yours.
That’s the way it’s supposed to work. Sadly, many people can’t play with friends. There are some possible solutions, but it’s basically up to the developers to fix it.
Co-op not working / Error Tarija-00100
If you can’t even start playing with friends, here are some workarounds you could try:
- Forward your ports (Uplay PC – TCP: 80, 443, 14000, 14008, 14020, 14021, 14022, 14023 and 14024; Game Ports – UDP 3074 to 3083)
- Disable your anti-virus, especially if you’re using a free one.
- Make an exception in the firewall for both Uplay and the game.
- Verify file integrity on Uplay and/or Steam.
- Restart your router and/or modem.
- Reset your hosts file (includes some fiddling, you can find instructions here).
