Call of Duty Warzone 2 Text Chat: How to Type in Game Chat

Text chat is a very fun feature of Call of Duty: Warzone 2, as it allows the entire lobby to type in chat and mess around throughout the match, even without a headset. While this can be annoying for some, this feature is quite neat and you might be wondering how you can utilize it. The feature can be turned off sometimes by default, so we’ll walk you through how to type in Warzone 2 and how to make sure text chat is enabled.

How to Type in Warzone 2

To type in Warzone 2, you’ll want to simply follow the below steps. These will differ depending on what platform you are playing on!

Console (PlayStation/Xbox)

  • Press the options button to enter the side menu screen.
  • Move over one tab with RB or R1 (depending on platform) and select Game Channels.
  • Again, press R1 or RB in this menu to move to the text tab, where you will find the ability to message!
  • To message in chat, simply just select the text box and press A or X.
  • Type your message and send!


  • Press enter on your keyboard.
  • Type your message and send!

It really is that easy to send messages and type in Warzone 2! Since there is no documented tutorial in-game on this, it might be challenging if you’re not looking in the right place. If you don’t see the text box option at all, then you must enable chat from the settings.

Steps to Enable Text Chat on Warzone 2

  • Open the Settings menu.
  • Navigate to the Account & Network section of the Settings menu page.
  • Scroll down to the Content Filters tag.
  • Select the Text Chat option and flip it to “ON”.

As long as this setting is enabled, you’ll be able to type in Warzone 2 with no issues at all. Now you can fight it out across Al Mazrah and type some ‘friendly’ messages to your opponents.
