Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, much like the Borderlands games that preceded it, has a strong leaning towards multiplayer co-operative play. You can of course have up to four players join a single game from across platforms in order to loot shoot and have fun together. However, the process of joining a game together can be quite confusing, so we’re going to break down everything you need to play with your friends.
The first thing you need to make sure of is to turn on “Cross-Play” in the Network and Socials tab of the menu.
In order to add a friend to your game you simply have to do the following:
- Click Social on the Main Menu
- Click Find Shift Friends and Search the name of your Friend
- Select their profile and add friend request
- Once they accept, click their profile again and press Join.
And voila that’s all there is to it.
However, if you still have problems then do not worry, we’ll explain each step in more detail to ensure you get to enjoy playing with your friends.
Turn on Cross-Play
Turn on the Cross-Play option. This option, however, is only necessary to turn “On” if the friend or friends that you want to play with use different consoles or mediums to play Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. The Cross-Play option should be available in the Network and Socials tab of the Options Menu.
By turning the Cross-Play option on you will be allowing matchmaking to occur even if you and your friends are using different gaming systems in order to play the game.
How to Add A Friend to Your Game
Search The Friends Name
If you and your friend/s have not played the game together before then you first need to add them to your account as a Friend. In order to do so search their names on the option called Find Shift Friends.
After Selecting this option enter their name and select the profile of your friend. Click Add Friend and after your friend accepts, they will now show up on your socials list.

Bonus Tip: If the friend request says Pending even after your friend has accepted then to fix this bug both of you must turn your platforms off and then turn them on again. This somehow works, trust us.
Join the Friend in Game
In order to join the friends game you simply need to click their name and select the option Join. This will allow you and your friend to both load into the same game.
Finally, head back to the main menu screen and select Play after having successfully linked or joined your friends. This will ensure that you load into the game in a shared world, allowing for sweet co-op action that this series is known for.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands has a simple co-operative multiplayer system that requires some reading to be able to play with your friends. Remember you can only have up to 4 players join a game at a time, and if players have different platforms then they should necessarily have Cross-play enabled.
The future of gaming is all multiplayer and we’re glad this game makes it that much easier to play along with your buddies.
