Crab Game is certainly one of the fun indie titles that have become popular in recent years after the surge of co-op games like Among Us. The first-person multiplayer game has been slowly climbing its way and gaining popularity on the Steam Charts. While the game is certainly most enjoyable with friends however if you are bored with empty lobbies or perhaps annoyed with toxic players then changing the server is your best bet.
This guide will tell you how to change the server in the Crab Game.
How to Change Server
As soon as you launch the game, you will notice that there are two options: Start Game and Find Game. To select the server of your choice from the main menu, just click on the Find Game option. This will show you a list of all the available servers and you will be able to check the number of players as well as their current status above the name of the server.
If you join a server that is currently in the “Playing” state then you will need to wait till the end of the minigame in order to participate with other players. You will be able to spectate other players until the current set of mini-games comes to an end.
Similarly, if you want to play in a private lobby with your friends then you can ask your friend to host a server using the “Friends Only” setting and send you the invite required to join the server. Do note that only players who have been invited to the server will be able to access it.
The third type of server is a Lobby Code Only which can be accessed by players who have been provided with the code required and is a good option if you don’t wish to add everyone to your friends’ list. You will be able to join a lobby by entering the code at the top right corner of the server list.
Do note that currently, the game does not allow you to change or switch servers when a match is in progress and the only way to change servers is by accessing the main menu where you need to click on the “Find Game” option. This means each time you want to change the servers, you will need to exit to the main menu by pressing the leave button and then access the server list.
