“Warzone 2.0 is great, but proximity chat is the GOAT!”
As we all know, Warzone 2.0 was finally released yesterday. As a Warzone player, I can tell you that the leap in quality has been quite remarkable – especially in the gameplay and in playing the highest possible graphics. But, a certain feature of the game has been the one that has taken all the limelight. Of course, I am talking about Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 proximity chat.
The “Proximity Chat” feature added in Warzone 2.0 has been the surprise of the year, not only for Activision Blizzard but also for Call of Duty fans. As a result, the entire internet has been saturated with great clips of Warzone 2.0 where players make use of this feature. It’s a feature that, for many players, has returned the essence of Call of Duty to the saga.
A late change in the game that has been key to its success
We all remember the waiting rooms of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and the popular Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Waiting rooms to enter the game could be summarized in one word: chaos. But, you know as well as I do that it was the favorite time for many of us to connect with other players.
In recent installments of the franchise, to reduce the problems between players and adapt to the standards of today’s society, this option had been disabled. Therefore, those players who spent multiple hours playing the different titles of the franchise felt that the game had lost part of its essence.
In the original Warzone, Raven Software had added back this feature but not as before. This time, players could only communicate with each other at the end of the game (but only for a few seconds). It’s a feature that, for many players, was key to connecting with the other players in the game.
Raven Software was aware of what the community was asking for. Therefore, they announced over the past few months that a new voice chat feature would be added to Warzone 2.0. The proximity chat feature would allow players to communicate during each game according to proximity. It’s a feature, which was not thought to be so important but has been a key aspect of the game’s popularity.
Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 proximity chat
What seemed to be a simple feature of the game has turned out to be one of the most praised by the players. Not only does proximity chat add a step up in difficulty to the game, but it also opens up a huge field of gameplay in Warzone 2.0.
This is exactly what we have been able to appreciate since the launch of Warzone 2.0. If you use social networks, you may have already come across a clip from Warzone 2.0 where this feature is used. This is because players have found a thousand ways to use this feature for gameplay and fun.
There are tens of thousands of videos on social networks of clips like this. That toxicity between players, the saturated microphones, screams, and more screams, are some of the elements that bring the proximity chat in Warzone 2.0. In short, it’s the essence of Call of Duty that old fans of the franchise missed so much.
Here are some of the best clips we’ve seen so far:

@wz.bull I’m loving warzone 2.0 proximity chat. Best thing they have ever done 🤣 #warzone #warzoneclips #rebirthisland #callofduty #vicricus ♬ original sound – Vicricus
In our opinion, this feature has been a great move on the part of Raven Software and Activision Blizzard. It has gotten a lot of players hooked who didn’t have high hopes for this continuation of Warzone. Hopefully, the toxicity will not be excessive and the feature will be active for the lifetime of Warzone 2.0.
