Is there Proximity Chat in Apex Legends?

Apex Legends has a wide range of user-friendly features and has pioneered several innovations that have been used in other battle royales, but has Respawn’s shooter welcomed Proximity Chat into the fold yet?

Thanks to Escape From Tarkov, and more recently Warzone 2, Proximity Chat is becoming a bigger and more sought-after deal by the second. Apex Legends is continuing to thrive and Season 16 of Respawn’s battle royale title is closing in.

Proximity Chat allows players to talk with each other once they get within a certain range of each other on the battlefield, and it can lead to social media-worthy trash talk as well as the knowledge that an enemy is nearby.

The added audio element is making online games feel more alive and closely connected than ever before, so it begs the question, does Apex Legends follow suit?

Does Apex Legends have Proximity Chat?

Despite the constant pleas from players to join in the recent trend, for the time being at least, Apex Legends does not have Proximity Chat.

The Hero-based battle royale shooter makes use of basic voice chat and party chat to allow teammates to communicate with each other, but there is no form of Proximity Chat to be found in the game.

Again, with some of the most popular battle royale competitors providing this service, it could potentially cause players to drift to other alternatives that do offer Proximity Chat.

Apex Legends fans can dream because although Warzone 2 launched with Proximity Chat, Fortnite did not. The feature was only implemented later on, meaning that the same treatment could happen for Apex Legends.

While we wait and see if Respawn Entertainment do decide to add Proximity Chat to the game, why not take a look at some of our other Apex Legends content?
