Activision Blizzard’s Call of Duty: Warzone 2 may be about pitting 150 super soldiers against each other in a fight to the death, but one player has opted for a less violent career.
As reported by VG247, Reddit user Crescendummain has become an in-game taxi driver thanks to Warzone 2’s new proximity voice chat feature. The player pulls up to other squads and, as long as they don’t kill him first, offers them rides to anywhere on the map.
Seeking that five star review, Crescendummain sticks to main roads only so that players have a smooth ride to their destination, offering the typical small talk along the way.
Proximity chat, as the name suggests, means players can now hear the voice chat of nearby enemies. While this naturally results in a lot of screaming and swearing, Crescendummain has used it to spread a little friendliness in the otherwise intense first person shooter.
Warzone 2 finally launched this week as a successor to developer Infinity Ward’s hit Call of Duty Battle Royale, bringing a variety of new features with it. The biggest of these changes is its new map Al Mazrah, however, as the series has moved away from its classic Verdansk and Caldera settings.
The launch hasn’t been all smooth, however, as several players encountered a glitch that locked them out of the game and told them to buy Modern Warfare 2 to get back.
