Call of Duty is a game that is all too familiar. If you are a gamer, you would have most definitely come across the game and even gotten obsessed with it. There are instances when people have chosen the game over their family, partner, friends; it sure knows how to create havoc. 

Call of Duty Warzone is considered as one of the most successful launches from Infinity War and Activision. The game is so popular that at any given time, it has an influx of players. With the gaining popularity, the game has a lot of glitches, errors, and never-ending issues. As a player, these things can get quite frustrating, and you need a solution as soon as possible. One of the biggest and on the rise errors and problems that the players face is that of the Warzone Voice chat and mic not functioning. 

There have been many people complaining about the same. If you haven’t come across this problem yet, you most certainly do not want to encounter it anytime either. As the disturbance to the in-game communication is quite infuriating. The main issue is you can hear people, but they have a hard time hearing you. Many users speculate that this is caused due to NAT, which is quite strict, but it can’t be true as you can still listen to people. This issue seems to be from the platform, and lucky for you can be resolved immediately.

How to fix chat on Call of Duty Warzone? 

If your chat is not working, that means you cannot send messages in the chat room, then you need to follow specific steps. Before anything else, the first thing you do is check the input and output settings, also ensure that configuration of everything is correct and has been done. The input device will be what you use to speak, while the output would be what you would use to hear for the game’s sounds. 

If you face issues with the game chat, if it is not working correctly, you likely have multiple output devices or enabled the wrong input device for the game. 

You can fix the issues in the following ways.

Fixing the issue of microphone not working in Call of Duty Warzone:

  • The initial step you start with the easy steps that fix the problems most of the time. If this doesn’t fix the problem, then we move on to a more in-depth method, which will require time and effort. 
  • Go to the taskbar and right-click on the speaker icon, go ahead and select the option “Open sound settings.” 
  • This should drop a window that says Sound on top. 
  • The far-right of this window, there is a menu called “Related settings.” Select the optician that is titled “Sound Control Panel.” This will bring about the old school control panel that would display all of your devices. 
  • Now in this panel, you select “playback” and find the headset in the list given. 
  • Once you locate the headset in the list, right-click on it and choose the option from the dropbox “Set as default device.” After doing so, it should have put a green checkmark on the corner. Right-click it again, and this time select the option “Set as Default Communication Device.” 
  • Now select “Recording” on the list; it is situated at the top. Find your primary microphone. 
  • Follow the same steps as step (Playback). Find the mic, and it is the default communication device and the default device. 

After following these steps go ahead and try out your microphone, and if people can hear you in the chat room, that means the problem has been solved. If this method hasn’ fixed the issue, then there are a few more steps you need to follow that will most likely fix the voice chat issue. 

  • The first thing you focus on now is to delete your player files and change options in your .ini file for the Call of Duty game. This will take no more than three minutes and is not complicated, rather very simple. But we warned by doing this method, you might be resetting your campaign process. 
  • On your computer, go to “document,” this should be located in your C: Drive. The folder that we are trying to find is located in the documents by the game. 
  • Find the folder titled “Call of Duty Modern Warfare” again; this is not located in your game files. Instead, it is in your Documents folder. 
  • The next thing you do is open the folder called “Players.”
  • Now proceed to delete everything inside the folder except for “adv_options.” 
  • Right-click on the “adv_options” file and go ahead and select “open with.” You open this in a notepad, hence select the notepad option when the “open with” drops a dropbox. 
  • Now that you have opened it on the notepad change the following line. 

“ConfifCloudStorageEnabled = 1” all you have to do is change the number 1 to 0. 

  • Proceed to save the notepad and close it. (Tip: open it again the same way to see if the changes have been made or not)
  • Now get ready and start your game, and set the games setting back up. Now go and change the settings to how you had them prior to the changes. You should now be able to test the microphone. This is available in the audio menu and sees if it works. Everything is sailing smoothly or no, go ahead and close the game completely. 
  • It doesn’t end there; go back to your notepad that you opened through “adv_options” and change the 0 back to 1. 
  • Save the notepad once again. Close and reopen to check if it has been appropriately saved or not. 
  • Open the game again, and everything must be working exactly like prior.
