Warzone 2 is nothing like its predecessor and that is quite apparent from the moment you drop into Al-Mazrah and experience all the new gameplay changes and features like the Proximity Chat.
The developers have focused a lot on the pacing of their latest BR offering. They have made the game slower and more methodical.
Yes, Warzone 2 does have a new feature called Proximity Chat and it starts working if you are less than 50 meters away from an enemy and lets you hear their mic chatter and vice versa.
This is one of the best additions to Warzone 2 in our opinion and adds to the immersion of the game. This guide will brief you on all things Proximity Chat and help you configure it on your system as well.
How Does Proximity Chat Work in Warzone 2?
Now that you know about Proximity Chat is available in the game, let us run you down on how exactly it works. Figuring this out will also let you use it in your favor during tense BR matches.
The aim of adding Proximity Chat to Warzone 2 is to add a layer of immersion by letting you talk to the enemy, or rather…let you hear them and vice versa.
This feature can be used in many clever ways like distracting your enemy with wrong callouts and forming friendships on the go.
Players can even try their luck by asking for forgiveness when they know defeat is imminent. Proximity Chat also works in The Gulag as well. Players should be cautious that it works the other way around as well and the enemies can hear their chatter too.
Proximity Chat Range
Proximity Chat kicks in as soon as you are less than 50 meters away from the enemy IF they have it enabled from the settings. This lets you hear whatever they are saying and plan your assault accordingly.
We’ve already seen some really funny examples of people using proximity chatter. Clever players, on the other hand, know that enemies can hear them & use this to their advantage by misleading opponents into ambushes and traps.

Technically, your Proximity Chat should now be working in-game but if for some reason it isn’t, there are a few fixes you can try. You can also turn it off the same way if you don’t like it but we advise against doing that.
