When landing somewhere busy in Verdansk, getting to a gun quickly is vital. Having to hold the pick up button to grab something can be frustrating and gives enemy players the chance to grab them ahead of you. So that you can get ready to fight as quickly as possible, here’s everything you need to know about how to change to tap to pick up (Contextual Tap) in Call of Duty Warzone.
What Contextual Tap does is change it so that you only ever have to press a button to interact with something. You won’t have to hold square or X to pick up a weapon, open a chest, or get into a vehicle.
It means you can run around quickly, grabbing anything without really stopping. It can cause some issues though, such as jumping out of vehicles when you don’t want to or accidentally interacting with something when you’re trying to reload. Generally, it’s a good option to turn on though.
How to Change to Tap to Pick Up (Contextual Tap) in CoD Warzone
To turn the setting on, press Options if you’re on PS4 (Menu on Xbox One and ESC on PC) and stay on the Controller tab.
Then, scroll down to the Weapons section of that menu and look for the ‘Use/Reload Behavior’ option. What you need to do is move that setting over to the right by two so that it is set as Contextual Tap. Now, when you next go into a match, it will be set so that you just have to tap to pick up weapons and items.
You’re also able to do this during a match, but it might be good to do it before one so that you’re not messing with the settings while another team could be hunting you.
One thing to note if you’re having any trouble with Contextual Tap too: holding the interact button will always reload, so do that if you need to so that the game doesn’t get confused about what you’re trying to do.
That’s everything you need to know about how to change to tap to pick up (Contextual Tap) in Call of Duty Warzone. For more tips and tricks on the game, be sure to search for Twinfinite or check out our wiki guide.
