Call of Duty: Warzone 2 introduces a rather unique voice chat feature called proximity chat which you can use to communicate with nearby enemy players.
When two players or squads are near each other, proximity chat will allow them to hear each other’s voice communications.
The feature adds a whole new dimension to the battle royale formula. You now need to be extra careful about what and when you speak on voice chat because there just might be an enemy player around the corner listening in.
In addition, you can also speak with enemy players through proximity chat. That, however, requires you to first assimilate, which is another new feature where you can join or invite enemy squads/players.
You can disable proximity chat at any point in the game. The following guide will tell you how.
Can you turn Proximity Chat off in Warzone 2?
Take note that proximity chat is enabled by default in Warzone 2 to encourage player engagement.
Many players enjoy this feature, but it can get a little annoying sometimes as people can often leave their mic open and you will have to hear all sorts of noise.
You can toggle the feature by following the steps below.
- Launch Call of Duty: Warzone 2.
- Open Settings by through the gear icon in the top-right corner of the home screen.
- Click on Audio.
- Scroll down to Voice Chat.
- Click on Proximity Chat to either turn it off or on.
