Lethal Company: How to Play With More Than 4 People

Is playing in a lobby of 4 not enough for you and your friends in Lethal Company? Then, here is how to play with more than 4 people in a lobby


Lethal Company is a trending indie horror co-op survival game developed by Zeekeerss. It was released on 24 October 2023 and is currently in early access. The game is set in a dystopian and retrofuturistic post-apocalyptic world. In the game, players are hired by a corporate organization named the “Company” to explore various industrialized and abandoned moons in search of scraps for sale. These moons are inhabited by various monsters whom players have to kill or escape from to collect the scraps to meet the profit quota every 3 days. 

Currently, the game can be played solo or with up to 4 players in a lobby. Despite 4 being the standard number of players in a multiplayer co-op game lobby, it comes as no surprise that players want more space in the lobby. Unfortunately, the game does not have this feature yet but fans of the game took it into their own hands and created mods for the game to play with more friends. Hence, here is how to play with more than 4 people in Lethal Company.

Thanks to the fans of the game, various mods were created to enhance the gameplay and this includes the BiggerLobby mod. 

The BiggerLobby mod was created by user “bizzlemip” on Mod DB. The mod can be used to enlarge the size of a lobby in the game quite easily. At the moment, the mod allows players to create a lobby with up to 40 players, how crazy is that? To play with more than 4 players, every single player wanting to play in the lobby has to have the mod installed in the game. Mind you, the version of the mod has to be the exact same so make sure that all of your friends have the same version of the mod as you. It is better to simply keep the mod updated to the latest version to avoid problems altogether.
