How to Enable Proximity Chat in Warzone 2.0

Enabling Proximity Chat is surprisingly simple. To do so, head over to Settings and scroll your way down to Audio. From there, scroll down until you see the Proximity Chat feature. From there, simply switch it to On, and Proximity Chat will be enabled. If you wish to disable it later, you can come back to the same menu, except switch it to Off instead of On.

Once enabled, head in-game and either use Open Mic or a Push-to-Talk key, and other players near your location will hear you. This can be used in a variety of ways. There’s of course the ability to shout expletives at other players (we know that’s probably why you want this on), but also the ability to deceive your opponents into thinking you’re pulling a particular strategy before getting the drop on them. There’s even the ability to squad up mid-game, so this could be a solid gateway to bring them aboard your squad.
