If you have recently made the switch to Apex Legends from another Battle Royale title like Fortnite or PUBG, you’ve probably already encountered a swath of Fortnite kids screaming down there headsets. If so, follow along as this article shows you how to mute individual teammates and players in Apex Legends.
Apex Legends has officially been out for a week now and its popularity has skyrocketed with player count records breaking across the board. It’s easy to see why too as Apex Legends is surprisingly fun, fast-paced, and well optimized for a game that has only just been released. Of course, there are still plenty of things to work on, including frame rates, and weapon balancing but overall it’s been quite a pleasant change from stereotypical buggy launches. Fallout 76 for example.
With a massive influx of players hitting Apex Legends so fast, one would have expected far more server chaos and server outages and surprisingly that hasn’t happened. Though some server upgrades are planned in the next few days/weeks/months. Of all the minor issues in Apex Legends, the most frustrating for a lot of players has been muting other players. This might seem strange for such a simple feature but the developers have placed mute in quite an unusual place.
How Do You Mute Other Players and Teammates in Apex Legends? (PC, Xbox, PS4)
Now that the Fortnite kids have arrived at Apex Legends it’s time to learn how to mute teammates and other players. Thankfully this process is the same across all gaming systems PC, Xbox, and PlayStation, so you won’t have to worry about learning something different for each platform you decide to play on.
To begin, launch Apex Legends as you normally would, then follow the steps you normally do until you find yourself in a game. Once you are in-game, you’ll be able to mute any of the other players on your team. To do this open your inventory (Tab Key or I on PC).
Then change to the Squad tab at the top of the interface.
Within the tab, you will see yourself, and your two other teammates. Below each of their names, you will see three different icons Mute Voice, Mute Ping, and Mute Chat. Simply click the option you wish to use (all if you want) and the player will be muted for the rest of the game or until you decide to unmute them. Which you can do in the exact same manner.
