How to turn off the microphone in Star Wars: Battlefront 2

In Star Wars Battlefront 2, there is no option to disable the microphone in the game settings. Therefore, voice chat is always on, and everyone in the group can hear what we are talking about. I found two different methods to solve this problem. Method #2 solved my problem.

We will add a fake microphone and force the game to use this microphone. If you have another microphone, you can use that as well. Thus, our voice will not be heard in the voice chat. This method works on Windows 10.

  • Download the “VB-CABLE Virtual Audio Device” driver;
  • Unzip the “VBCABLE_Driver” file;
  • Right click on “VBCABLE_Setup_x64.exe” and select “Run as administrator”;
  • Once installed, launch “Star Wars Battlefront 2”;
  • Press “Alt+Tab”;
  • Right click on the speaker icon in the bottom right corner;
  • Click “Open Sound Settings”.
  • Go to the bottom of the window that opens;
  • Tap App Volume & Device Settings.

Then, in the Star Wars: Battlefront 2 row, use the Input drop-down list to select “CABLE Output VB-Audio Virtual Cable”.

Method #3

If you want to disable the microphone in the game and use the microphone in Discord:

  • Download the “VB-CABLE Virtual Audio Device” driver;
  • Unzip the “VBCABLE_Driver” file;
  • Right-click on “VBCABLE_Setup_x64.exe” and select “Run as administrator;
  • ยป Install driver;
  • Click “Start” => “Settings” => “System” => “Sound”;
  • Click on “Sound Control Panel”
  • Go to the “Record” tab;
  • Right-click on “Exit” and select “Set as default device”;
  • Right-click again and select “Set as default communication device”.

  • Then open “Discord”;
  • Go to “User Settings” => “Voice and Video”;
  • Use the Input Device dropdown to select your microphone.

That’s all! Your microphone is disabled in the game.

Note: If you have problems with sound after installing the program, you should select the output device in the sound settings.
