Best Modern Warfare 2 voice chat settings

Once the best audio settings are ready for action, ensuring the voice settings are geared towards communicating effectively is the next step to guaranteeing numerous victories. Here's what we recommend:

  • Voice Chat: On
  • Speakers/Headphones Voice Chat Device: Your device where you can hear voice chat.
  • Microphone Device: Your microphone of choice.
  • PC Only - Microphone Activation Mode: Push to Talk
  • PC Only - Push to Talk: V
  • Open Mic Activation Threshold: 3
  • Voice Chat Volume: 25
  • Microphone Volume: 25
  • Voice Chat Effect: No Effect

For PC players, utilising the Push to Talk feature is perfect for communicating only essential information to your team. However, in ranked play where the action is usually much faster than in public matches, having it switched to an Open Mic is the way to go.
