If you want to play Warzone at your highest level possible, you will need to know the best audio settings!

Audio in Warzone is essential, allowing you to hear loot crates or even enemy soldiers attempting to creep up on you. In Warzone, audio is more important than any Call of Duty before it.

This is because Battle Royale games are a lot more tactical than your typical Team Deathmatch and having audio cues to provide vital information can be the difference between winning or losing.

So, let’s dive in and discuss the best audio settings for Warzone. These will work no matter whether you are on PC or console!

Best Audio Settings For Warzone

Here are the best audio settings to use in Warzone:


  • Audio Mix: Headphones Bass Boost
  • Master Volume: 30
    • Gameplay Music Volume: 0
    • Dialogue Volume: 76
    • Effects Volume: 94
    • Voice Chat Volume: 26
    • Cinematic Music Volume: 0
    • Wartracks Volume: 30
    • Hit Marker Volume: 50 (PC Only)
    • Speakers/Headphones Game Sound Device: Default System Device (PC Only)

These are the best volume settings as Headphones Bass Boost seems to make footsteps clearer. Additionally, Effects Volume is the highest setting as this accounts for hearing gunshots, footsteps, and dogs barking.

Voice Chat (Preferential)

  • Voice Chat: On
  • Game Voice Channel: All Lobby
  • Last Words Voice Chat: On
  • Proximity Chat: Off
  • Voice Chat Device: Default System Device (PC Only)

These options are all preferential and entirely depend on whether you want voice chat. We suggest turning Proximity Chat off so that nearby players won’t accidentally hear you and your team speak.

    • Push to Talk: Preference (PC Only)
    • Mute Yourself When Connecting: Off
  • Microphone Input Device: Default System Device (PC Only)
  • Microphone Level: 100
  • Microphone Test: Off

These settings are entirely up to the user and whether they use in-game voice chat. The optimal settings will be different for everyone.

Accessibility (Preferential)

  • Subtitles: All Off
  • Subtitles Size: Default
  • Subtitles Opacity: 0
  • Mono Audio: Off
  • Reduce Tinnitus Sound: On

Subtitles are optional, but we suggest turning them off so there are less distractions on the screen. Reducing Tinnitus Sound is a must as this prevents the ringing noise from flash and stun grenades.

Audio Advanced Settings (Preferential)

  • Juggernaut Music: Off
  • Hit Marker Sound Effects: Classic

These settings are also optional. If you prefer the Modern Warfare hit marker sounds, compared to Classic you can go for that. Juggernaut Music also doesn’t affect Warzone.
