How to mute voice chat in Destruction AllStars

Turn off voice chat by learning how to mute lobbies in Destruction AllStars.

Smashing cars? Fun. Squealing voices? Less so. Destruction AllStars makes the odd choice to turn on voice chat for all players in every single game you join. Thankfully, you can turn off voice chat in Destruction AllStars, though you’ll need to do so through the PS5 menus. We hope there will be a more permanent fix in future, but for now here’s how to mute voice chat in Destruction AllStars.

To mute or disable voice chat in Destruction AllStars, hit the PlayStation Home button between the analog sticks on the DualSense controller. This will open up the Control Panel menu, with several cards visible on the screen. When you’re in a multiplayer lobby, the leftmost card will relate to voice chat options. Use the analog stick to select the left card, then press Square to mute voice chat in the entire lobby. This will only disable voice chat for that game, meaning you'll need to do it again next time you load into a lobby.

The DualSense controller has a built-in microphone, so if you don’t want to transmit then you’ll also want to mute your microphone. To do this, press the microphone button on your DualSense controller (underneath the PlayStation Home button). When the light it lit up green, the microphone is muted so no one else will hear you.

Unfortunately, you’ll need to mute voice chat in each and every single Destruction AllStars multiplayer game you play right now. Quite the irritating feature to contend with if you don’t want to hear someone else chatting to their mum during matches. We’re really hopeful that developer Lucid Games will add an in-game option to disable voice chat or mute individual players soon.

For now though, if you want to disable voices, make sure you use that you hit that PlayStation button to mute voice chat in Destruction AllStars. Head over to our hub page for the game for more guides and content about the game, including a full controls breakdown and more!
