Are you tired of holding down the interact button to do everything in Warzone 2? Here’s everything you need to know about Contextual Tap and how to enable the setting to get the game feeling as smooth as its predecessor.

Contextual Tap was a game-changing setting in the original Warzone. No longer did players have to worry about whether or not they were going to miss out on picking up a new weapon or taking ages to reload while fighting with a door.

Thankfully, while it may have been renamed, Contextual Tap is present within Warzone 2, even if it is buried under a mountain of other options.

What is Contextual Tap in Warzone 2?

While it’s been renamed as Interact/Reload Behavior, Contextual Tap is a feature that prioritizes either interacting or reloading depending on the situation.

With this enabled, gone are the days when you end up opening a door while trying to reload. It essentially forces the game to make an informed decision around whether you want to interact with something or reload, eliminating those long button presses, which can be game-changing when in a fast-paced battle.

There’s no setting that is directly labeled “Contextual Tap” this time but the function is still right here.

The sequel has technically done away with the Contextual Tap setting in name, but it’s still there in function.

To turn it on simply follow these steps:

  • Open the settings menu and select Controller
  • Scroll down to the Gameplay section and open the “Interact/Reload Behavior Menu
  • Choose either Prioritize Interact or Prioritize Reload

After changing the setting you can safely back out of the menu and launch into a game and test out which version is right for you.

Just like it sounds, Prioritize Interact will allow the player to get away with just tapping the interact button one time to pick up loot, open bags, or use doors but comes at the cost of being able to reload while faced with one of those prompts.

Prioritize Reload will do the inverse and guarantee that you reload above everything else.

For most players, Prioritize Interact will be the way to go as it massively speeds up the process of getting looted up and into the fight and it’s easy enough to understand when you’re safe to reload, so the convenience outweighs any potential sacrifice.
