Why is the game chat always muted

How do u unmute the game chat

Maybe Microsoft gave you a communications ban, if not bring up the scoreboard in game and press X to unmute

How do get off of communication ban

Wait until the ban is lifted?

Yea if you have a ban Check here
You can check when it ends if you do have one or ask them to review your case and lift the ban. Usually they uphold bans though.

Pressing X doesn’t work for me. And as far as I know, I don’t have a comm ban.

I know that on the 360 some people were muted by everyone if they were muted enough. Maybe you’re encountering one of those people.

If you really did get banned, you should of gotten a message on Xbox Live and another message to your e-mail that is linked to that Xbox Live account. I would know.

You can hold that button with two squares and press X to unmute if not, I don’t know how to unmute that problem for you (pun intended) any further.

I’m not sure if this answers your question, but if you press B while bringing up the score board, you can swap between party and game chat.

It’s been a while since I’ve played around with my Xbox settings, but you might want to check there…possibly the “privacy” settings. It’s possible the game chat is muted in your Xbox settings and not within the Halo 5 settings.

(I’m just guessing here…like I said, it’s been a while since I’ve poked around my Xbox settings )

its probably in your xbox settings that you have chat muted by default, check parental settings to see what type of communications you have allowed.

You have to allow communication with non friends in you privacy settings on XBL.

It was the parental settings. Thanks guys.

Wow we actually solved it.
