The Texas Chain Saw Massacre uses team based voice chat, and communicating with your team will be important. Players on the opposite team will not be able to hear you while in a match, but you can chat together in the lobby and post match while viewing scores. You may run into issues where you’re unable to be heard by others on your team or your voice quality might suffer.
The steps listed throughout this guide will help with the following issues:
- I’m talking but no one can hear me.
- People are talking but I can’t hear them.
- I sound far away or too quiet.
Restart Your Xbox
- Shutdown your Xbox, hold down the power button on the front of the Xbox for 10 seconds.
- Unplug your Xbox from the electrical outlet and wait 1 minute.
- Plug in your Xbox into the power outlet.
- Turn on your Xbox - wait for it to reconnect and sign in with your Xbox account.

Check balance between chat and game audio by rotating the dial on the left earcup, this dial should be in the middle for both game and chat volume to be the same levels. Learn more about the wireless headset from Xbox support.

- Get fresh batteries in your controller.
- If using a wireless controller, and you have a cable try connecting it directly to your Xbox.
