How to enable proximity chat in Warzone 2
Proximity Chat – The ability to hear and talk to anyone nearby is one of the most exciting new features added to Warzone 2. It’s integrated into both Battle Royale and DMZ modes. Proximity Chat allows you to track enemies by hearing their voices, or simply play pranks on your opponents with friendly taunts. It serves both strategic roles and just for fun. Therefore, it is not surprising that many players will immediately want to try it. However, it looks like some players don’t know how to enable proximity chat in Warzone 2. Here’s what you need to do:
- Click the Options button.
- Click the Settings tab (gear icon).
- Open the “Audio” settings.
- Scroll down to the Voice Chat section.
- Turn the Close Chat option on or off.
So there you have it, here’s how to turn Proximity Chat on or off in Warzone 2. However, some players have reported that the feature is currently broken and broken for them. Primarily, make sure you are using the in-game group chat, not PSN party or Discord, for example. Contactless chat will only work with in-game chat. For some players, the option to turn on/off contactless chat is greyed out and they can’t toggle it. As we said before, this may be due to your in-game voice chat being disabled. So, be sure to enable Warzone 2 voice chat first, and then contactless chat will probably work.
Finally, make sure you have selected the correct audio input and output devices in the game settings (headset and microphone).
