How to prevent end-of-plunder mic spam in Call of Duty

Are you tired of hearing a sea of noise right after you finished your plunder match in Call of Duty? The answer is probably yes, the open mic or as some players refer to it “end-of-plunder mic spam” is a horrible feature and we wish it would get removed. It usually ends up with you having to scramble on how to mute your speaker or furiously looking for the option to pull you out of the noisy post-game lobby.

Usually after a match of plunder we love to chat to the random new friends we made during the match but with the post-match open mic in plunder that is no longer an option. Say goodbye to asking the other players in your party if they want to play another or even congratulate them on their 20-bomb. 

Here is how you can prevent the post plunder open mic spam in COD:

  1. Open the game’s Options menu
  2. Navigate to the Audio tab
  3. Scroll down to the Voice Chat section
  4. Click on the first option that says “Voice Chat”
  5. In the dropdown, select the option that says “Mute Everyone except Party”
  6. Once the game starts, manually unmute the party members that was not part of your lobby when starting the game, by clicking on their names

Although it says mute everyone but your party, the downside is that you will only be able to hear your premade party and you are probably already on Discord so that does not really help. Any random players that fill up your party will unfortunately also be muted. Good news is that you can simply manually unmute your party members for the rest of the match to keep the communication flowing!

This audio setting is fine, but it is a bit of a hassle manually unmuting the rest of your team every new round. We hope this COD mute guide can lower your stress levels by reducing the mic spam after every plunder match. PS, devs please remove the post plunder open mic feature.
