@Guilrel said in How do I get Party Members and What is the Party Member Beacon?:
I tried to get party members during the urgent quests but every time I tried, I always end up alone and if I tried to wait in the gateway ship the teleporter starts automatically so I'll most likely end up being by myself in an almost literal sense with no other teams joining me if I didn't open up the other blocks. So how do I wait for other players to join me when I start a mission?
I wish I had seen this thread sooner for you, but for future reference you can goto the Quest Counter Attendant and find the option where you can join an active party that's already in a quest. If you are doing a random mission you would need a friend to join you or by any chance someone may join you.
Alternatively, you can start a quest that has Multi-Party areas and install a Party Maker by using the View button on your controller and selecting the Party Maker option. Note that you must be in that Multi-Party area, most likely Area 2 of the quest. For emergency quests you can drop these almost immediately.

You can also change your Online Status through the same menu and search for party members publically above your name. Don't be afraid to speak out too! Youll find someone
