So in this guide, I will be showing you how you can appear offline in Warzone, so your friends can no longer ask you to join their game and you don’t have to then awkwardly reject the invite.
Call of Duty: Warzone, developed by Infinity Ward and Raven Software, is a free-to-play battle royale game. It offers intense multiplayer action in a dynamic and ever-evolving environment. It is one of the most popular battle royale games currently available at the time of writing this.
How to appear offline in Warzone
Method 1: Disable Crossplay
Disabling crossplay will limit matchmaking to players on the same platform as you. This can help reduce the chances of your friends seeing your online status. If they are playing on a different device than you.
Open Warzone then go to the Options menu
Now select Account & Network
Find Crossplay and toggle the option to Off
Method 2: Change Online Status
On consoles such as PlayStation and Xbox, you can change your online status to “Appear Offline” in your console settings. Changing this setting will make you appear offline to your friends using the same console as yourself.
So changing your online status to offline will make your friends think you are offline and not playing Warzone.
