Did you know there is complete Modern Warfare crossplay in the latest Call of Duty instalment? That's right, you can play with your friends on Call of Duty Modern Warfare whether they're on PS4, Xbox One, or PC, so long gone are the days of needing to be on the same platform. Here is how to set up Modern Warfare crossplay in multiplayer or spec ops.

Playing Modern Warfare crossplay and getting your friends involved works exactly the same as it does in Call of Duty Warzone. Go into the social menu (in the top-right hand corner of the lobby screen) and anyone on the same platform as you will be displayed, allowing you to invite them.

For anyone on a different system, navigate to the "add friends" option. From there, you can select whether to search for someone by PSN ID, Xbox Live Gamertag, BattleTag, or Activision ID. The first two are self-explanatory, whereas the final two options can both be used for players on PC. When they accept your friend request, they'll show up on the same social tab.

You can either invite them from there or join their game if their lobby is open. You're also able to "whisper" to them which is essentially just a PM, or you can remove, report, or block them. Which would be a strange move if you've just added them, but I digress. That's everything you need to know about Modern Warfare crossplay, so good luck soldier!

One of the resident guide writers around these parts, give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1 2020, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager 2020, clicking on heads in Valorant, or mowing down hordes of enemies in Outriders.
