Advantages of muting and disabling chat in Valorant

Reducing pressure

By muting the chat, you minimize distractions that surround you while you’re playing which can be beneficial if you’re someone who struggles to perform under pressure.

Additionally, disabling chat is a good idea if you’re someone who’s very socially anxious and finds it difficult to handle a constant influx of messages.

Performing in clutch moments

Everyone knows the feeling of being in a clutch 1 vs 1 situation with the entire team shouting or typing different instructions in your ear, leading to confusion and panic.

Muting or disabling chat in these clutch situations can lead to an improvement in performance when it comes to high-pressure round finishers.

Team chat

As far as textual communication goes, text chat with your teammates is strategically the most important one as it allows you to share tactical insight and make in-game calls.

However, it’s often too slow to appropriately follow real-time events in-game which is why it’s much less used than voice chat.

To start chatting with your teammates:

1. Open the chat

  • Press enter

2. Type and send

  • Type the message you want to share with your squad
  • Press enter once more to send 

All chat

All chat is primarily used for light-hearted banter and friendly trash talk between rounds.

It allows you to send messages visible to both your teammates and opponents, resulting in interaction with the entire lobby.

Just be cautious not to go too far as toxic and inappropriate language can get you penalized by Riot Games’ System

To send messages in the all chat:

1. Open the all chat

  • Press enter to open the chat and type /all

2. Type and send

  • Type the message you want to share with the entire lobby
  • Press enter once more to send

1. Open the whisper chat

  • Press enter to open the chat
  • Type /whisper or /w followed by the player’s username

1. Press the push-to-talk key

  • V (default push-to-talk key, you can adjust this to your preference)

2. Hold the push-to-talk key

  • While the key is held, your mic stays on and you can talk to your teammates

Keep in mind that your teammates will only hear you while the push-to-talk key is held down.
