    How to enable and play CO OP in Dying Light 2?

    Note that Dying Light does not support LAN connections by default, while starting from around 93% (both in the Main Campaign and The Following), all the quests (including side quests) need to be completed in single-player only by design. Once you complete the main campaign to 100%, the co-op will become unlocked again.

    Dying Light uses the same ports as your platform recommended ports. For more information, head over to:

    It is also possible that your online experience is affected by your NAT type.

    In general:

    • NAT 1 can be connected with NAT 1,
    • NAT 2 and NAT 3 NAT 2 can be connected with NAT 1 and NAT 2, but not NAT 3
    • NAT 3 can be connected with NAT 1, but not NAT 2 or NAT 3

    If your platform is Steam, you may also have the so-called Moderate NAT type, while Dying Light, along with a number of other multiplayer games, heavily relies on NAT.

    Change your NAT to Open, please. Unfortunately, we have no guides on NAT configuration for the PC platform to officially share.

    Additionally, if you have your Internet router set to IPV6, try changing it to IPV4.

    Lastly, note that it may be difficult for your console to connect to a Dying Light co-op session twice from the same source (e.g. in the same house/within the same network type). Only one console can connect from a network at a time. However, you can search the Internet for articles on how to set up a DMZ for your console, which might solve the issue at your end.
