You can turn off crossplay in XDefiant very easily by opening the game’s main menu, then navigating to the “Settings” page and selecting “Matchmaking & Account.” In this menu, scroll down until you find “Crossplay” and change the setting to “Off”. If this new toggle is switched off, you won’t be able to connect to players on other systems.

  • Select the Xbox button in the center of your controller.
  • Select Profile and System > Settings > Account.
  • Scroll until you find Privacy > Xbox Privacy > View and customize details > Communication and multiplayer.

Why should you turn off crossplay in XDefiant?

Whenever you have a competitive first-person shooter there are people willing to cheat. Unfortunately, they can be on PC, where it’s easy to download cheats and hacks to ensure an unfair advantage over the opposing team.

For most console players, dealing with such players can be challenging and awkward and deal with slightly increased queue times compared to playing with a hacker. This is the main reason anyone would want to turn off crossplay in XDefiant!
