Honkai Star Rail is essentially a single-player experience but it allows you to make in-game friends and use their characters to clear certain challenges. If you want to have your own Honkai Star Rail community, check out this guide on how to add friends in the game.

Despite the absence of conventional multiplayer gameplay like Genshin Impact, Honkai Star Rail innovatively lets players borrow their friend’s Support Character to use in the Calyxes and the Caverns of Corrosion. While it might disappoint those wanting to flaunt their strongest characters, this feature allows you to extend support and contribute to your friends’ adventures.

Here are all the details on how to unlock and use the friend-addition function in Honkai Star Rail.

Before you can access the friend-adding function in Honkai Star Rail, you’ll need to complete the ‘Today is Yesterday’s Tomorrow: The Voyage Continues’ quest, which requires players to invest around two hours of gameplay.

Completing this quest unlocks your friends list, and you can start adding your friends by following these instructions:

  1. Locate the phone icon at the top-right corner of your screen.
  2. Tap on the Friends tab.
  3. Enter your friends’ UID to add them.

Keep in mind, to successfully add a friend, they must be in the same region as you. You can check this on the start-up screen of the game.

Where is my UID in Honkai Star Rail?

You can find your UID number in Honkai Star Rail at the bottom-left corner of your screen, present at all times. The UID number is your unique identifier and is essential when adding friends.

Enter this UID number into the designated field, and your friend should pop up on your list.
