New details have emerged!
Warzone 2 is the next iteration of the battle royale, and with Infinity Ward pulling out the red carpet to reveal the game fully, we've got tons to talk about.
One gameplay aspect that players were waiting for since it was announced is the proximity chat feature.
Here's if Warzone 2 offers this!
Does Warzone 2 Have Proximity Chat?
Proximity chat is a feature that not a lot of battle royales offer these days, as we haven't seen the likes of Fortnite or Apex Legends implement this yet, for various reasons.
Now, Call of Duty will be getting this feature, not only in Warzone 2, but also DMZ, the new tactical game mode also releasing alongside Season 1.
Infinity Ward noted the following.
Both Battle Royale and DMZ matches will have proximity chat — also known as the ability to have voice conversations with anyone nearby — enabled.
Using this effectively depends on the mode:
In DMZ, Proximity Chat is crucial to ensuring an Assimilation goes as planned. Alternatively, it can be used as a de-escalation tactic for players who just want to complete their objectives and get out.
In Battle Royale, Proximity Chat is most useful in the Gulag, where you have a random squadmate to form a Duo. There is enough distance between the two Duos to quickly discuss strategy before the Gulag duel begins, so it is recommended that you open up comms for that.
Also, keep in mind that anti-toxicity rules will be enforced, so keep those comms clean. More details can be found here.
