Communication is key, especially when it comes to your overall survival chances. With other asynchronous multiplayer games, it’s hard to give survivors and killers a chance to communicate, especially if it’s one versus four, but The Texas Chainsaw Massacre puts this idea on its head by allowing teams to communicate with one another. Likely due to the addition of multiple killers, it’s more important than ever to talk to your friends, but how do you make it happen?
How To Use Push To Talk In The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Game
When you’re in the main lobby, both sides of the field can communicate with one another. However, once you are inside the world of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, you’ll only be able to communicate with your particular teammates. No matter which side you’re playing, you can use the push-to-talk method by pressing the following key/button on your control method of choice:
- Keyboard Push To Talk: V Key.
- Controller Push To Talk: Down D-Pad.
You’ll need to hold this button as long as you’re speaking, so make sure that you know exactly what you want to say so you don’t give up any valuable distance. This is a great way to let your team know if you’ve spotted a Victim, spotted a trap on the ground, or you’ve just opened an exit and want to try to get your friends out alongside you, knowing how to activate this voice chat option is great.
Can You Have Your Microphone Always On in Texas Chainsaw Massacre?
If you’re not a big fan of the push-to-talk method, you may be wondering if you can have an always-open line of communication. Thankfully, you can make this happen with just a quick settings change.
In the Options menu, you’ll want to go into the Audio portion and find Microphone. Switch this from Push to Talk to ON to confirm that you have an always accessible microphone connection, letting your team hear everything that is going on when you speak. This could be a little obnoxious if you have a lot of background noise, but if you’re planning on being stealthy just like your character, you’ll be ready to go.
No matter if you’ve chosen to side with the Victims or the Family, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a hell of a good time. Be sure to check out our section below to learn more about the characters, maps, and more before you jump into this terrifying thrill ride.
