How to activate Warzone loudness equalization

PC users can activate a setting known as loudness equalization in order to maximise audio performance during matches. Once active, the setting gives you the ability to pinpoint the location of nearby players. Here's how to switch it on in Season 6:

  • Right-click the speaker icon on the taskbar and select 'Sounds.'
  • Open the 'Playback' tab and search for the device labelled with the green tick.
  • Right-click the device and select 'Properties.'
  • Tick the 'Loudness Equalization' box and click 'Apply.'

Although it sounds like opponents are on the floor above in some cases, using loudness equalization is a handy tool to use if you're after an advantage.

That's everything there is to know about the best Warzone audio settings to use in Season 3. If we hear anything else about a crafty exploit, we'll update the guide with all the game-breaking intel.
