Since the game’s initial launch in October 2022, Modern Warfare 2 players have frequently encountered in-game audio issues, most commonly with enemy or friendly players being muted. But why is this happening and how to fix it?

Game chat is one of the most controversial features in Call of Duty. It’s a place where friends meet and discuss the game, but also where some of the most brutal roasts and deadly fights of all time have taken place.

In Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, you have the ability to mute specific players, entire lobbies, or turn off communications entirely, giving players complete autonomy over who they communicate with and who they don’t communicate with in-game.

The problem is that this doesn’t always work as intended. Some players are unable to unmute friends in their party or hear death messages from enemies that could provide important information. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to correct it.

Check the lobby audio settings

It might seem obvious, but the first thing to check is your audio settings. Open your settings, scroll down to audio, then down to voice chat settings.

Voice chat settings in Modern Warfare 2activity

Your voice chat settings should be the first port of call.

From here you should check if the following settings are ok:

  • voice chat: At
  • Game Voice Channel: All lobbies
  • Voice chat volume: 100 (or any number where you can hear voice chat)

Depending on what you want to hear, you might want to check that Last Words Voice Chat and Proximity Chat are also enabled. After you’ve done this and everyone is still muted, you’ll need to look elsewhere.

Check voice chat channel

After completing the above steps, open the social menu and scroll to voice chat to ensure you are in the correct voice chat channel.

Just make sure you are connected to voice chat and there is no option to join voice chat.

You can also Mute or unmute all players during gameplay, so you could try to do this. Simply Open the scoreboard during a game and Press the button to select “Mute/Unmute All” at the bottom of the screen.

If none of this works, it’s worth quitting the game and launching it again as the issue might only be temporary. If this doesn’t fix the problem, you may have to reinstall the game, which while painful, is better than not being able to talk to your friends in the end.
