How to unlock Wuthering Waves co-op

You can play Wuthering Waves co-op with your mates, however, you're going to need to unlock this multiplayer functionality right away.

How do you unlock Wuthering Waves co-op? With over 30 million pre-registrations, there was a lot of hype surrounding Wuthering Waves, and despite some performance issues at launch, it more than lives up to expectations. As you explore the world of Solaris-3, there is one big question, when can your friends join you?

Unlocking co-op in Wuthering Waves is simple, but it will take some time. While you progress through the game’s first few hours, be sure to find out how to get more Wuthering Waves Tides, the currency used to pull for characters. Speaking of which, you should also use this time to check out our Wuthering Waves codes guide for free materials and Astrite.

You can play Wuthering Waves in Coop with your friends, like Lingyang over here.

Unlock Wuthering Waves co-op

To unlock Wuthering Waves co-op, you need to reach Union Level 22. Your Union Level is your account level, which determines what content and features you can access. Leveling is straightforward as you gain experience from everything you do: from completing quests and challenges, to simply exploring the map.

If you want to raise your Union Level as fast as possible, we recommend sticking to the main quests first, then focusing on companion and side quests. Exploring the open world and tackling world bosses is also a great way to gain Union Level experience, but the latter can be quite tough early on.

You can join your friends in Wuthering Waves’ Coop by requesting to join their session via the friendlist.

How to join a Wuthering Waves co-op session

To join another player, you need to add them via the friend list and request to join their session. Up to three players can join and tackle bosses in the overworld. Each player has access to one of their Resonators. If there are only two players, the host can switch between two.

Progression isn’t shared between players, but looted materials and captured Echoes are. It’s worth playing together to farm upgrade materials or help others with difficult overworld bosses. Certain instanced challenges such as the experience and weapon upgrade material challenges can also be played in co-op.
