How to mute players in Overwatch

Overwatch is one of the best games in the world and there’s nothing better than playing with nice teammates and secure your objectives as a team.

With that being said that’s usually not the case and I often find myself playing with “toxic” teammates that I wish I could just mute. Fortunately you can mute those annoying players and even block any of their chat texts!

Follow the steps below to learn how to mute a player’s voice and text chat!


Step 1 – Press Escape and press the “social” button (Circled in red)



Step 2 – Navigate towards the player you want muted and press the microphone icon next to his name (Circled in red) Press the text icon to mute his text chat.


Step 3 (Optional) – Mute Everybody by leaving the voice chat room and/or text chat room (Circled in red)



And that’s it you are done! You now know how to mute specific players the entire lobby or just the enemy team! Thank you for reading my “How to mute in Overwatch” guide and I hope you can finally play Overwatch without any interference!
