Fallout 76 is more fun when played with friends in a squad. Surviving the odds while having chit-chats with companions is not a bad option at all. However, a glitch has caused the Friends List/Social Menu of Fallout 76 to get all bugged and stop working eventually. It gets annoying, right? Don’t worry, we got you covered on this. Read till the end to know all the possible solutions for it.
Fallout 76 Social Menu Not Working – Fix
Here are a few things for you to try if your Friends List is not working:
Check Server Status
A server issue may have caused the Social/Friends Menu to not function properly. Use this link to visit the Bethesda website that will let you know if the Servers are working properly or not. You can also check the developer’s Twitter Support page for cross-checking and more information on this error.
Invite from Main Menu
An alternate way to add friends in Fallout 76 is from the Social Menu tab in the Main Menu. You can try this method until this Friends List issue is fixed by the devs.
For those who are playing it on Xbox, know that the Friends List of your Xbox Live and Fallout 76 takes a while to sync. Moreover, players who have logged into Fallout 76 will show up in the Friends List. Also, Xbox One players should follow each other in order to appear on the Friends List.
There is a chance that your Friends List in Fallout 76 is not working due to altered settings. Ensure that the following settings opt:
- See You’re Online – Friends
- See Your Game & App History – Adult Default
Restart your Device
Last but not the least, try restarting your PC or Console. This will give your system a much-needed reboot. After that, try launching Fallout 76 again and check if your Friends List is working or not.
That is pretty much all you can do when your Friends List is not working in Fallout 76. While you are here, make sure to check out our other Fallout 76 Guides on Gamer Tweak.
