Why can’t I send or receive friend invites?

If you can’t send or receive friend invites, it may be because:

  • You tried to send a friend request to an account that has reached its incoming friend request limit of 500.
  • You may have 500 or more pending outgoing friend requests.
  • You might have a pending friend request from the player that you're trying to add.
  • You might have your friend blocked on an external platform
    Let the player know they need to unblock their friend through their console/platform system and if they need help to do so, redirect them to the respective platform's support.

In order to cancel a pending outgoing friend request, you can go to your Friends list, click on the search field and type the name of the friend you'd like to remove. After finding them, click on the Cancel Request button.

You can find all your pending outgoing friend requests in Epic Games Launcher by following the next steps:

  1. Go to your Friend list.
  2. Click Connect your social account located at the bottom of your Friends list.
  3. Select the Requests tab.
  4. Click the X mark if you'd like to remove a specific outgoing friend request.

Please note that currently there is no way for you to remove all current friend requests you've sent out in one go.

If you want to delete all pending friend requests that are sent to your account, you can turn on the auto-decline mode for your Friends list. To do so, please read this article.
