How To Add Friends In Honkai: Star Rail

As we stated before, there’s not actually any multiplayer game modes currently in Honkai: Star Rail, at least not at launch. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t add your friends! And who knows – maybe further down the line, miHoYo will add a co-op mode?

Without further ado, let’s dive into the guide at hand…

  1. Launch Honkai: Star Rail
  2. Load into the game’s Star Rail hub (this may take you a few hours of gameplay before you unlock this hub area)
  3. Select the mini-menu option in the top left corner of the screen
  4. A new mini-menu will pop up on the right side of the screen, presenting a plethora of options – select “Friends”
  5. At the top of the next pop up menu, select the icon on the right
  6. Type in your friend’s UID (found in the bottom left of the screen in small, faded writing) in the “Search” field
  7. Search the UID
  8. If you’ve typed in the UID correctly, then your friend’s account will show up – add them by clicking the invite icon on the right of the bar

And that’s it! You should now have your friend added – enjoy!
