How To Skip Queue In Helldivers 2

Tired of that long and boring Matchmaking Queue in Helldivers 2? Here’s how you can go a step ahead and skip it entirely.

One of the most common issues faced by the players in Helldivers 2 includes the long queue timing. Due to server overload, this problem has become even more severe in the past few days. I can’t wait in matchmaking queues even if it takes 10-15 minutes to enter. Imagine what happens if match-making takes 2-3 or more hours.

This issue has arisen in Helldivers 2, and players are desperately looking to bypass or skip the queue. Thankfully, it is possible, and here’s how you can do it.

How to Bypass and Skip Queue in Helldivers

According to a Reddit Post, skipping the long matchmaking queue is possible if one of your friends is online. The condition is that they must be playing on Steam. If you have both of these conditions fulfilled, then that online friend can invite you to the game. There’s a great chance you can skip the queue and join your friend directly in Helldivers 2.

Getting the “Defrosting Helldiver” message while trying to Skip the Queue in Helldivers 2.

You should keep in mind that this method does not guarantee 100% success. Sometimes, you can receive a message that says “Defrosting Helldiver” and then get stuck on that screen. The reason why you are receiving this message is because the server capacity is full. So please try again later in a while.

Also, Crossplay is available, so an already Online Steam user can invite a PS user. This will help them to bypass the queue in Helldivers 2. But if a PS user tries to invite a Steam user then that’s impossible because Steam does not have the feature to receive invites from any other platform yet.

At the time of writing, such server issues are still occurring in Helldivers 2. This is causing many problems, like the Black Screen issue and the “Server Request Failed” error. To know how to solve them, make sure to check out our guides right here on Gamer Tweak.
