Can You Mute Annoying Mics in Modern Warfare 2?

There are two methods for muting other players’ mics in CoD Modern Warfare 2: either individually or altogether. We’ve gathered the steps for both:

  1. Open the scoreboard.

  2. Highlight a player’s name and press the Toggle Mute button.

    On PlayStation consoles, the default button is X; on Xbox consoles, it’s A; on PC, you have to right-click the player’s name and select “Toggle Mute.”

  3. If you’d like to mute more than one person, open the game menu and select the Settings tab.

  4. Now pick Audio and scroll down to Voice Chat.

  5. In the drop-down menu, you choose your preferred option.

    You’re welcome to disable voice chat entirely, everyone but your party, or everyone but your friends.

That’s all there is to muting other player’s mics in CoD Modern Warfare 2. It’s definitely a feature you should use when it’s appropriate, especially if you’re running solo and have no need for negative input.
