How To Set And Use Push To Talk In Helldivers 2 – PC And PS5 Settings

Don’t want other players in your team to listen to you or your background when you aren’t talking? You should use the Push to Talk feature in Helldivers 2.

When it comes to shooter games, communication is the key. This couldn’t be further from the truth when you are defending Super Earth from all the mobs of Terminids and Automatons. However, no matter if you are playing with friends or have joined a public game, talking with your teammates and strategizing is the key to completing the missions. But not everyone likes their voice chat to be constantly on. So here is how you can set your Voice Chat as Push to Talk in Helldivers 2 and how to change your Keybinds for PS5 and PC.
