Playing with people across all systems isn’t for everyone, especially with the raging controller vs. mouse and keyboard debate. Luckily, you can turn off crossplay in Call of Duty: Warzone on PS4, Xbox One, and PC – here’s how.

For the entire last generation, players have begged for crossplay to come to their favorite multiplayer titles. The feature allows PlayStation 4,  Xbox One, and PC owners to enjoy the game together.

However, not everyone wants the feature to always be turned on, and Call of Duty’s latest battle royale title Warzone comes with it toggled by default. Here is how you can easily turn it off.

Call of Duty’s latest battle royale comes with crossplay on by default. But it can be disabled.

How to turn Warzone’s crossplay feature off

While on paper crossplay sounds like a wonderful idea, over the last couple of years there has been a heated debate among players over the potential advantages tied to platforms. The conversation around keyboard & mouse vs. controller with aim assist has heated up.

Warzone in particular has also been plagued with rampant cheaters, particular hackers on the PC version. Whatever your reasons are, here is the quickest way to turn the feature off:

  • Press Start, which will open up the options menu.
  • Go to the ‘Account’ tab at the very end next to Audio.
  • Toggle ‘Crossplay’ to Disabled.

In order to turn off crossplay in Warzone, players have to go into the account menu.

Turning off crossplay should, in theory, limit your opponents to the platform you are playing on. It also however means that wait times for matchmaking will go up, as you’ve lessened the player pool.

While the feature is a great option for those that want to play with friends on PC or another console, it’s certainly not for everyone. Thankfully, Activision has given us a quick way to turn it off.

While no specific start time has been made public just yet, we know when the next big Warzone event will be kicking off. Expect to see your favorite personalities competing on Wednesday, October 21.

Given the unique format with this event, there’s a good chance it runs for quite a while. So expect a good few hours of action once it gets going. We’ve embedded the BoomTV stream below so you can catch the event as it goes live.

Rather than having players form their own teams for this event, things will be a little different. 16 “cracked” players will each be picked by 16 content creators to form every duo for the tournament.

This means that almost every duo could be playing together for the very first time as streamers choose their partners from the list of professionals. Once all duos are together, they’ll be paired up to square off in typical Quads action.

The exact point system is yet to be revealed, though the event will likely follow a familiar structure; eliminations will rack up points as will overall wins. The duo with more points at the end of each round will move on in the tournament bracket.
