Custom Games with Friends

    This guide will teach you how to play with friends over the internet in a custom games match. Note this guide requires you to port forward.


    1. The host of the game needs to port forward in order for others to connect (If you don’t know how to port forward please look up a guide on google for your particular router)
      The port that needs to be forwarded is: 4976 UDP (If you want to confirm this, enter the following command in the external game console get net_port)

    2. Go to continue to main menu from the Plutonium menu

    3. Go to custom games, pick your map and start the game (You must be in game for friends to connect, it will not work from the lobby!)
      Also if you experience the message “waiting for more players” you can use the following command to force start the match:

    4. Friends join by opening the console (MUST BE ON THE PLUTO MENU, IF YOU CLICK CONTINUE TO MAIN MENU THEN CONNECT YOU WILL CRASH!) and typing the following, replacing YourIP with your public ip (which you can get from here
      connect YourIP:4976

    If you and some / all of your friends are on the same LAN they connect through the internal IP, if all players are on the same LAN portforwarding is not necessary.
    Please note that some VPN tools like Hamachi cause issues with this.

  • What is the last command for the friend to join

  • @BadVibes we have a handy guide with all commands needed right there

  • What if we have the same ip? How would we play together then?

  • Then use your internal IP-Address.

    1. There is a full list of commands? for example restarting a game in custom with friends.

    2. No way to add friends or joining their lobby or something else??

    Thanks for supporting

  • Since PlutoT6 didn’t really add any commands you can use any dump on the internet.
    As long as you don’t want to play on Steam or Console or have the spare time to implement support for the lobbysystem: NO, there is no way to join a lobby.

  • hi Xerxes, do I have to start a server bat file and create a server to play custom games or its already automatically set up? My brother and I are on the same wifi/lan

  • @Opser2 When you are using custom games you don’t need to host a dedicated server since the game will host a listen server. All thats left to do is for your brother to join through console using your internal IP.

  • @Xerxes i hop success full your plutonium projected

  • man , when my friends join me they all count as dead :’( which a bit annoying ! is there a solution so we all play the first round and start the game from it’s begining ?

  • @xX-BiHi-Xx you have to time this correctly with your friends can already connect while you are on the loading screen. It’s the easiest on maps with a intro video since you can just wait with skipping it until your friends are ready too.

  • Hello, can you add me on discord? I need help with some port forwarding stuff pls
