Can you play Honkai: Star Rail with friends?

This time we will tell you how to add friends to Honkai: Star Rail and how to support them in their adventures in this new smartphone title.

Honkai Star Rail

Honkai: Star Rail is a real success on smartphones and PC, with a formula that shows everything learned from Genshin Impact. With less than 3 months after its launch, we are about to receive its first major update, and there are surely many questions related to this title. And well, being such a big game, there are surely some of your friends who are already playing the title.

How to add a friend in Honkai: Star Rail

If you’re wondering if you can play Honkai: Star Trail with friends, the short answer is… kinda. Let’s talk about how you can do that and what social options the miHoYo Space Fantasy RPG gives us.

To unlock the Friends feature in Honkai: Star Rail, complete the quest “The Journey Continues. This quest is available after you first board the Astral Express at the end of the Prologue. After looking around the train and talking to your fellow passengers, talk to Conductor Pom-Pom after he announces that the Express is about to warp jump. This will complete the quest and unlock the Friends feature.

What are the Honkai: Star Rail social features?

As with everything, there’s a catch. Unlike Genshin Impact, Honkai: Star Rail is a single-player game at its core. However, you can still add friends and borrow their characters to complete challenges. When you enter Calyx Mode, you can borrow a support character from your friends that has all the stats and leveling that your friend has invested in, and use it in battle. This can be a very useful way to fill in gaps in your own team’s expertise.

You can help your friends and earn credits by lending them your support characters. When one of your friends uses your support character in Calyx mode, you will receive 2,000 credits.

To set up your support characters, follow the steps below:

  1. Open your in-game phone and tap on the “Trailblazer Profile” icon.
  2. Select one of your unlocked units to be your chosen Support Character.
  3. Your friends can then borrow this character for Calyx mode.
  4. Underneath your “Support Character” section, you will see a section called “Starfaring Companions.” Here you can feature up to three of your favorite characters.

Now that you know how to set up your support characters, you may want to make sure they are the best they can be.
