BEST Audio Settings For COD Warzone 2

Learn everything there is to about the best audio settings for Warzone 2

Warzone 2.0 allows you to tweak a plethora of options, one of which includes setting up the best Audio Settings so you can hear your opponents much better during gameplay. Contrary to popular belief, Audio plays a pivotal role in a massive Battle Royale FPS such as this game. Therefore, learning about the correct values to input for the audio settings will enhance your capabilities during gameplay and action.

However, we should mention that these settings mostly come down to personal preferences so if you find a setting whose value doesn’t pertain to your liking, then feel free to tweak it and test it out yourself. It shouldn’t be too much of a hardball task to find the perfect balance of the best audio settings in Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0.

The Best Warzone 2 Audio Settings

The entire audio options in the game are divided into sub-categories, each with different functionality. We will be discussing our hand-picked values for each option so you can get a better idea of what to set under each one. Keep in mind that, again, it will vary from player to player as you might be using different headphones or speakers for the game. So without further delay, let’s discuss each of these audio settings in detail.

  • Audio Mix
  • Master Volume: 64
  • Music Volume: 0
  • Dialogue Volume: 30
  • Effects Volume: 100
  • Hit Marker Volume: 40
  • Speakers/Headphones Game Sound Device: (Default)
  • Mono Audio: Off

Audio Mix, by default, is preferred for Headphones because you will, of course, want to listen to every incoming footstep of the enemy, and a fantastic quality headphone will provide that with ease. You can also turn on the Headphones’ bass boost, but quite frankly, the bass can be a little too much for certain headphones, so we had it turned off and found the normal headphones option to be the best for our experience.

Most of these adjustments all come down to personal choice, but the reason you want music audio completely off at zero is that it will allow fewer distractions during gameplay. There is little to no music already, but having it at that value will ensure you don’t run into any kind of instances where you may get distracted by it. 

The overall or master volume should be balanced out so you can hear everything clearly to the point where it isn’t too low or too high that you will burst an ear drum. Hit marker volume is a great indicator to know you’re picking off your enemy but try to adjust it so that it isn’t interfering with your other incoming audio channels.

Lastly, it goes without any question that Mono Audio should be turned off. The setting basically allows you to split your audio across both sides of the headphones equally. It is great for users who have hearing issues, but unless you’re one of those players, then we highly recommend keeping it off so that you can hear precisely hear which direction the sound is coming, whether it’s an enemy or any other action.

  • Subtitles Functionality: Default
  • Campaign: On
  • Multiplayer: Off
  • Coop: Off
  • DMZ: Off

If you might have subtitles on for some reason, we suggest disabling them because there is absolutely no reason why you should have them on in Warzone 2.0 because your main focus will be on the gameplay. Regardless of which, subtitles will be on by default only for the single-player campaign of Modern Warfare 2, which is ideal since at least that mode of the game has actual pieces of storytelling.

Moreover, having subtitles on for any other multiplayer mode in Warzone, such as DMZ, will also prove to be more of an annoyance than anything beneficial to your gameplay.

Voice Chat

  • Voice Chat: On
  • Last Words Voice Chat: On
  • Proximity Chat: On
  • Voice Chat Device: Default System Device
  • Voice Chat Recording Mode: Push To Talk
  • Voice Chat [Push To Talk]: Z (Key of your choice)
  • Open Mic Recording Threshold: 70
  • Voice Chat Volume: 40
  • Microphone Test: Off
  • Microphone Device: Default 
  • Microphone Volume: 100

You’re probably well off using applications such as Discord to chat and play while in a squad with your friends, but regardless of which, we recommend keeping voice chat on unless you’re uncomfortable with it. Who knows? You might run into a random teammate who will be using comms to engage enemies, giving you a better idea of the enemy and the overall action.

We kept the Last Words feature on as it allows the player who killed you to hear your last words, but if you dislike the option, then feel free to turn it off completely. You can bind any key of your choice to use the in-game voice chat functionality, which we have on the Z key, for easy access. However, if you’re someone who prefers an Open Mic, you can do that as well as adjust the voice detection range via the Open Mic recording threshold.

You can adjust the voice chat volume value of your teammates in your squad, which we kept below half at 40 in order to avoid any instance where you might be playing with random players, and their mic is loud. You can also adjust your microphone volume in case it is too high or low in frequency.

You can also enable or disable Proximity Chat, as it is mostly harmless unless it interferes too much with your experience. It essentially allows you to hear and talk to your nearby opponents during gameplay which can be either hilarious or unique depending on the situation entirely.

Channels & Advanced Audio

Channels and Advanced Audio (image captured by Us)
  • Mute Yourself When Connecting: On
  • Game Voice Channel: Personal choice
  • Juggernaut Music: Off
  • Hit Marker Sound Effects: Classic
  • Mute Game When Minimized: On
  • Reduce Tinnitus Sound: On

Lastly, you can set an option to mute yourself when you first connect with your team, along with the choice of which voice channel to connect to by default, whether it’s your squad only or the whole lobby. We also advise switching the hit marker sound effects to Classic, as, in our opinion, it will provide a much clearer and crisp hit detection sound when engaging the enemy.

Muting the game when minimized on PC will allow you to focus on your other multi-tasking work in peace while the Warzone 2.0 application is running in the background. Reducing the Tinnitus sound will reduce the sound of various elements, such as flashes from grenades, explosions, and other kinds of blaring sounds. These sounds can be extremely annoying for a few players and sometimes can distract you, too, so enabling this setting is advised.

The Wrap-Up

Warzone 2.0 is an extension of Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2, and safe to say that it is on the rise of becoming the most successful Free-to-play launch from Activision Blizzard. The previous version of the hit battle royale title had a ton of backlash due to its issues and setbacks, such as the humungous file size across all platforms.

Thankfully, it looks like Infinity Ward took that criticism to heart and polished the game to its full extent. Infinity Ward has left no boxes unchecked when it comes to accessibility which is easily notable from the BEST Controller settings for Warzone 2.

The game has a variety of new and returning weapons they can choose from, with loadouts that can destroy your opponents in a matter of seconds. The Best Assault Rifle Loadouts in Warzone 2.0 include the FSS Hurricane, but if you’re one who plays a little aggressively, then using the Best SMG Loadouts, such as the Lachmann Sub can provide you with an easy time, especially if you’re a new player of the game.

Aside from that, there are also the Best Marksman Rifle Loadouts that can help skilled players destroy their enemies in a matter of seconds. For now, though, this wraps up our guide to the Best audio settings for Call of Duty Warzone 2.0.
