Fix Black Ops Cold War ‘Voice Chat Suspended’ Error

Black Ops Cold War has had a good reception among fans, but nothing like the previous title Modern Warfare. It’s natural for fans to dislike some aspects of the Treyarch as they have gotten used to the Infinity Ward ways, but some features of the game are simply not thought over and outrageous. One of them is the Black Ops Cold War “Voice Chat Suspended” error message that occurs on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S|X.

Players disable the voice chat for the obvious reason, they don’t want to be disturbed by the chatter of other people or simply want to have a fun time alone without other people announcing their opinions, but the players who disabled the Black Ops Cold War voice chat are seeing the constant message “Voice Chat Suspended.” But, that’s not all, the problem is even more irritating for players who have enabled the voice chat and are still getting the message and are unable to use the voice chat feature. Fortunately, we have a way you can resolve both problems with the voice chat. Keep scrolling to know more.

Fix Black Ops Cold War ‘Voice Chat Suspended’ Error Message

As for the first issue, where you are actively shown the message that the voice chat is disabled, there are some simple solutions you can try. The solutions works by activating the in-game voice chat and then tuning down the sound on your system. Here are the things you can try.

  • Enable the Voice Chat option in the game, but turn down the volume.
  • Enable the Voice Chat, but disable the microphone and change the microphone to PTT.
  • Finally, for PC players assign a keybind to turn on/off while in game. Enable it from menu and while in-game use the keybind to disable it.

As for the players, who are getting the Black Ops Cold War ‘Voice Chat Suspended’ Error Message even when the chat is enabled, it could simply be a glitch that can be fixed by rebooting the game or disabling and re-enabling the voice chat. Go to the Settings of the game and select Audio tab. From there disable and re-enable.

As this is an in-game problem and not an issue with the user’s device, the solution will work for all devices – PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and PS5. Regardless of your problem, the solution will help you eliminate the dreaded message from appearing and you will be able to enjoy the game seamlessly.

Now, we do not know why the developers would have the message displayed actively on the user’s screen, but the assumption is that they want the players to know exclusively why the chat is not working. As the game is team based and co-operation between members is essential which requires the chat, they might have thought to make it prominent.

That’s all we have in this guide, the solutions we have discussed should effectively remove the message from appearing. If you have any other problems or a better solution, let us know in the comments.

He is caught in a loop between writing about games and playing them. It's a vicious cycle. Although he's biased towards PC, you can occasionally find him on the PS5. He does not own an Xbox Consoles but plans on getting one soon.
