Warzone 2 Proximity Chat Silliness Is Taking Over TikTok Right Now & It’s Hilarious

Proximity chat is the ultimate Warzone 2's best feature.

Call of Duty’s next iteration of Warzone has arrived this week, and it’s brought with it a bunch of new features to the battle royale experience. One of those is proximity chat, which will be familiar to anybody who has played games like PUB or Escape From Tarkhov but is completely new for Warzone 2 players, and it’s proving to be a hilarious source of content for TikTokers.

More importantly, anybody can hear you speak so long as you’re in range, which obviously produces a load of silliness that TikTokers are having fun with.

Well, when we say having fun we mean tricking people into a false sense of security before robbing them and/or killing them! It’s mean, but undoubtedly amusing if you’re not on the receiving end. Here’s repullze having a laugh:
