Warzone 2 Proximity Chat Glitch So Names Won’t Disappear

The final issue to frustrate Call of Duty: Warzone 2 players is that names in proximity chat stay on screen, resulting in a blurry mess.

A player from Infinity Ward and Raven Software Call of Duty: Warzone 2 has discovered a new proximity chat bug that is sure to frustrate some fans of the highly successful, but very glitchy, Battle Royale game. The unusual bug with the free shooter’s proximity chat causes players’ names to remain on screen when they’ve finished speaking, leading to a fuzzy, indecipherable mess and serving as the latest example of the many glitches in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.


Released to much fanfare earlier this year following the success of 2020s Call of Duty: Warzonethe free game Call of Duty: Warzone 2 received a mixed reception from many gamers and critics. The addition of new features such as proximity chat and Escape from Tarkov– DMZ mode inspired in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 were praised by gamers for helping breathe new life into the franchise, but other gameplay changes and a seemingly endless series of gameplay issues were decidedly less popular with gamers. This latest bug affecting the game’s proximity chat is likely to annoy players who are already disappointed with the game’s seemingly unfinished state.

The screenshot shows the edge of the screen where player names are listed when talking using proximity chat but, instead of disappearing when a player finishes talking as expected, all names remain at screen superimposed.
