Whether you want to communicate with your friends or keep things muted, I’m here to break down everything you need to know about using voice chat in XDefiant.

A lot of the time, communication is free, especially in a free-to-play shooter like this game, but sometimes, you need some quiet to think. So, learning how to use voice chat and adjust its settings is exactly what you need to help find your optimal playstyle.

To toggle voice chat in XDefiant during a match, you only need to head to your score menu and press the corresponding button at the bottom of the screen to enable or disable voice chat. In the case of the PlayStation I’m using, it’s the square button.

Doing this will either mute or activate voice chat for your entire party. However, you can also mute individuals by hovering over their names and selecting mute so you can’t hear them.
