Fake Friends is an alternative way to join other players. This brand-new feature will trick the game into thinking that a certain player is a Social Club friend.
Players that you add as fake friends may be displayed in your Friends list, allowing you to join them from the Pause menu. The game will treat them as actual friends when they are in your lobby as well. However, they are not actually added to your Social Club friends list; they will not see you as a friend, nor will you see them in the Social Club website.
You may also display the Social Club profile of a fake friend to look up for their information right away.
Add a Fake Friend⚓︎
Head to Online Tab → Fake Friends → Add Fake Friend and type either a name or a SCID. The name or SCID will be searched in the Social Club database and, if found, will be added as a Fake Friend.
You can also add fake friends directly from the Online Players list.
Fake Friend Management⚓︎
Fake Friends will be displayed in Online Tab → Fake Friends. You can search for fake friends by their name or SCID; in case of conflict, the SCID will be prioritized.
