Most everybody loves a bit of helpful comradery in their lives, especially when things are going well. But, if you’re not feeling like socializing today, or hearing someone screaming in your ear while playing BattleBit Remastered, there’s a good chance that you’ve wondered if and how you can turn off Promixity Chat during gameplay. Sure, it adds to the realism, but sometimes, your social battery is at a low point and you just feel like fragging some foes in peace. Let’s find out how we can turn this setting off, so you can get into your game without having to hear the sounds of other players.

When you boot up BattleBit Remastered, you’ll find yourself at the starting page, where you’ll have the option to join into a quick game of your choosing or mess around with some of the different available settings. You’ll want to go directly into the Settings Menu.

Here, you’ll have the option to mess around with all of your different settings, no matter if you’re looking to adjust something as simple as your POV or Controller Settings, to things like Audio Settings. From here, you’ll want to click on the Audio button, as we’ll be adjusting a few different things in this particular menu.

In this menu, you’ll find a variety of different options to tweak your audio experience exactly how you would like it. If you’re looking to just jump into the game without the extra volume of players screaming in your ears, you’ll want to turn the following settings down to zero:

  • Master VoIp Volume
  • Steam Friend VoIp Volume (Unless you are playing with friends)
  • Party Friend VoIP Volume
  • Clan Friend VoIp Volume
  • Squad Leader VoIp Volume
  • Teammate VoIp Volume
  • Enemy VoIP Volume

You can also turn off your microphone during this step if you don’t want other players to hear what you’re saying. Just switch off the following settings:

  • Opt-In Voice Chat
  • Death Microphone

I live in an apartment complex, and things can get a little noisy around here, so to save my team and opponents the hassle of listening to myself talking to my cats and any other random noises, I always make sure that I have my microphone off. Unless I somehow find out that they loved hearing me talk to Slimo about her little Dragonfruit cone, I think it’s better that I just don’t.

No matter if you’re a BattleBit Remastered veteran, or someone just learning about this game rather recently, the hype is here. Take this adventure on the go if you’ve got your hands on a Steam Deck, and find out more about the game in our BattleBit Remastered section below. Get ready for the ultimate combat simulator when you jump into a 127 v 127 battle without hearing everybody and their mother talking about what is happening in the game. It’s actually kind of relaxing at that point, besides the woosh of bullets passing past you.
