Best Warzone 2 Audio Settings To Hear Enemy Footsteps

Listing to enemy footsteps has always been a core gameplay aspect of Call of Duty games. That does not change with the new Warzone 2.

Having crisp and clear audio will let you know if there is someone trying to flank your squad or moving their way outside. You obviously need a good audio system and drivers for this purpose, as well as a bit of familiarity with how to listen and decipher enemy footsteps.

You also need some good audio settings in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 to accompany your hardware. The following guide will help you get started.

How to make enemy footsteps louder in WZ2

It is rather unfortunate that while Warzone 2 features improved and enhanced audio over Legacy Warzone, its stock audio settings are rather suboptimal.

Head into Settings through the gear icon in the top-right corner of your screen to set the following audio options.

I can’t hear enemy footsteps in Warzone 2

The footstep audio bug has returned from Legacy Warzone. If you have been playing Warzone 2, there must have been some situations where an enemy sprinted right behind you without making a noise.

That has nothing to do with your audio settings. It is a well-known bug that blends the sound of enemy footsteps with the environment or removes it altogether.
