Warzone 2.0 Streamer Used Proximity Chat To Turn Off His Opponent’s Xbox

Warzone 2.0 streamer Jon Schaefer aka I Got Puppies, might be the only person to utilize the new proximity chat feature to its full potential in one of his streams. In a recent live stream, while playing Warzone 2.0, Jon realizes that his opponents are using the proximity chat feature, and he comes up with an evil but intelligent plan. 

Before we continue, for those who don’t know about the proximity chat feature.

Proximity Chat in Warzone 2.0

Got something to say? Comms are now open, so any in-game chatter can be picked up by any other squad. This can open up new ways to tackle engagements . . . or mess with enemies who are holed up inside buildings.

And I Got Puppies took this a little bit too seriously. While in the final circle, he enables his mic In-game and shouts out loud, ‘Xbox, turn off’ to trigger the voice command on his opponents’ console and turn it off mid-game. 

Surprisingly, at that exact moment, some opponents were disconnected from the game. I Got Puppies, and his teammate exclaimed that it might have worked, but the community thinks otherwise as a lot of factors should be in line to pull this off, and the majority of them are on luck, and you cannot control them. 

In a perfect scenario, if your opponent is using the proximity chat feature with the audio output from speakers and voice commands turned on for their Xbox, after checking in all these factors, something like turning off your opponent’s console mid-game remotely is possible. 

And that is where the commenters say this was an unsuccessful attempt as the number of people in the game was the same, or it might be a perfect coincidence that people left at the same time as Jon shouted. Some said people using the speakers as audio output deserve this. 

Well, the whole scenario is debatable but very interesting if it works out (obviously for you, and it will be equally frustrating for the person on the other side).

Nevertheless, it should be admitted that it was an intelligent move by I Got Puppies. I can see it getting replicated to abuse the already hated proximity chat feature of Warzone 2.0
