Will Warzone 2 Have Proximity Chat?


Wondering whether or not Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 will have proximity chat? We've got you covered.

As seen with popular battle royales such as PUBG: Battlegrounds and DayZ, proximity chat can truly make for some unforgettable moments. Proximity chat extends the realism of using your voice to communicate by mimicking how sound travels in real life. The closer you are to another player, the louder you hear their voice. This not only means you need to be close to a teammate for them to hear you, but you also need to be careful about what opponents may or may not hear.

Here's a breakdown of whether or not proximity chat will be in Warzone 2.

Will Warzone 2 Have Proximity Chat?

As revealed during the Call of Duty: Next event in September, proximity chat will indeed be supported from day one in Warzone 2.0.

If it is implemented the way it was showcased during the event, Warzone 2's proximity chat should work both in the pre-game lobby, as well as throughout the entire game. Compared to other titles with proximity chat, the one used in Warzone 2 at the time did seem to be not all that precise, as players could hear enemies loud and clear no matter how far away they were at a certain range.

Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 is scheduled to release for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (via Battle.net and Steam) on Nov. 16.
