What are the best audio settings for Warzone 2?

Turn up the volume when you turn up for the squad.

Being able to hear your enemy in an online FPS game is critical, especially when it comes to battle royales when the map is crawling with opponents. Enemy footsteps, AI enemies, killstreaks, and more are all things you will need to hone in and listen to while chasing victories in the BR game. Thankfully, CoD’s settings are extensive, and you’re able to customize the audio settings for your own setup and personal preference.

Best audio settings for Warzone 2

Call of Duty’s battle royale is back in a big way with Warzone 2. The first game’s audio was notoriously spotty, so the audio settings are something you will likely want to tweak before dropping in on the new map, Al Mazrah. To configure audio in the game, open up your settings menu and select Audio to find these settings. Here’s how to tweak them for success.

Volumes

  • Audio mix: Headphone bass boost
  • Master volume: 100
  • Music volume: 0
  • Dialogue volume: 80
  • Effects volume: 100
  • Hit marker volume: 80
  • Mono audio: Off

The audio mix will depend on what you are using for audio. If you’re using headphones, then cater to that, but you can also choose settings for a regular TV or a soundbar.

Subtitles

  • Subtitles: Off

This is our personal preference. If you want subtitles of player voice lines in Warzone 2, then turn it on.

Voice chat

  • Voice chat: On
  • Last words voice chat: On
  • Proximity chat: Off
  • Open mic recording threshold: 70
  • Voice chat volume: 100
  • Microphone volume: 100

This is more personal preference, but turning off proximity chat will prevent the enemy from hearing you when you are nearby and using your microphone in-game.

Channels

  • Mute yourself when connecting: On
  • Game voice channel: Party only

Audio advanced settings

  • Juggernaut music: On
  • Hit marker sound effects: MW
  • Reduce tinnitus sound: On

These audio settings for Warzone 2 will help you get set to rack up as many kills as you can in the fresh multiplayer maps season 2 brings. Pair it with the best Kastov 762 loadout, and you’ll be unstoppable. If you’re more into long-range, then you may want to check out the best snipers in Warzone 2.

Hi! I'm Iya, and I either play games for a few hours in a week, or several in a day- there just no in-between. It all relies on whether I discovered a narrative-heavy game that I'm itching to see how it all plays out in the end, or if I do decide to finally get a life and prefer to dabble in casual games before I find my next obsession.
