Call of Duty Warzone was released on March 10th 2020, is a free-to-play Battle Royale video game for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and we can reveal how to appear offline in the game.
Even though it is seen as a social game to play with friends, many opt for playing Warzone alone. The reasons for this could be that some players get tired of playing in a team and want to go the solo route, or some find that they can concentrate much better when there aren’t multiple team members in their ear.
Going solo could also be a way for some players to work on specific skills because playing alone means you have no one to rely on, and therefore, it helps improve your skills.
Some players also prefer to appear offline as a way of avoiding getting messages from friends asking them to play. So, how do you appear offline? The answer isn’t as simple as you may think.
How to appear offline in Call of Duty Warzone
Sometimes, despite setting your status to offline on your gaming console, Call of Duty will still say that you are appearing online.
Warzone manages your social setting throughout your linked Activision profile, and therefore changing your status to offline on the console won’t make you invisible to the other players.
It isn’t hard to appear offline in Warzone, and we have revealed the simple steps you have to follow in order to be invisible to friends whilst online.
Here’s how you can appear offline in Warzone:
- Go to the Activision website, and sign in to your account.
- Click the Profile tab in the top right-hand corner of the page.
- Choose the correct network for your account. That may be PlayStation, Steam, or Xbox Live.
- Click the Sign On Visible, and then choose None to appear offline.
If your Warzone account isn’t linked to Activision, then you’ll be able to get that done while you select the correct network. The one you select depends on the platform you use.
Keep in mind that you can also change whether other players can search for you and also customise the information that is made visible to the other players. This will only be possible through the Activision website since Activision will reverse any game visibility settings you’ve already set.
You might find it easier to edit your friend list instead if you’re constantly hiding your visibility, or you can also decide to change your name in Warzone. Creating a new persona may give you the anonymity you want without your friends realising.
