Finding the best Warzone 2 audio settings can make all the difference over the course of the match. Call of Duty's latest battle royale chapter features improved audio which makes it much easier to hear the footsteps of any nearby threats. With AI patrolling various parts of the map, hearing what's around the corner plays a huge role when it comes to becoming the last player standing.


With the battle royale using the same engine as Modern Warfare 2, there's a high chance footsteps are incredibly easy to hear but with all kinds of other noises covering any opponents, you may get caught out and sent to the gulag.

How to counter Dead Silence in Warzone 2

Dead Silence is bound to cause problems in Warzone 2. Having the ability to silence footstep audio temporarily enables players to work their way around the map without detection. You can use it to sneak behind unsuspecting opponents but it's hugely annoying if you're on the receiving end of a Dead Silence push.

Thankfully, there are a few ways you can counter the controversial field upgrade in the battle royale. Just like in the first Warzone, the High Alert perk will make sure you hear anyone using Dead Silence to gain an advantage.
