One of the biggest annoyances of playing online games with random people on mic is that you have to deal with their breath, unnecessary cursing, and worst of while whining kids. Thankfully, Apex Legends’ ping system is robust enough to let you mute your teammates and still communicate the important details throughout the game.

To mute people in Apex Legends, you need to do the following:

  1. Go to Inventory when in a game.
  2. Select the Squad menu from the top bar.
  3. Click the mute voice button. You’ll see it below the banner of each player (a tiny speaker icon).

On the PC, you can open the inventory by pressing the TAB key. While on the Xbox One controller, press the Menu key to open Inventory, and on the PS4 controller press the Options key.
