Red Dead Redemption 2 Online: Voice Chat Settings & Options


With Red Dead Redemption 2 being a massively multiplayer game, it has a voice chat system built in. By default, everyone in your session can hear you, and you can also hear them. When a player speaks, you’ll see their name appear on the right hand side.

If a player is being loud or obnoxious, you can also choose to mute them and report them. Or using the in-game settings, you can change your voice chat settings so that only friends can hear you, or everyone in your posse for example.

Below, we have a quick guide for enabling voice chat and changing the settings for Red Dead Redemption 2. Whilst we’ve covered some more guides for the game which can be found here.
