Is global chat diabled?

I did a search but didn’t find anything recent. I used to push right analog stick down, or press U on my keyboard for global chat in Horde. Neither of them work and I can’t figure out why.

Any ideas?


Doubt x1000


Hold X. It may seem weird but dont DOUBT it.

If this isn’t bait its located here


Same thing when someone can’t use the search-function/google.


Don’t help them! Delete that!

This was my first thought too. Although, I did get curious…

If you just type the word “chat” into the search, you get a bunch of old articles that have nothing to do with the latest change.

If you type “chat disabled”, you only get a couple, but only one or two have relevant titles.

Maybe this whole time, people have actually been searching and it’s just that the search function sucks? :thinking:


That could be a possibility, but as I said.

Doubt. I just don’t think it’s possible.

No I didn’t get any messages that I was suspended.

Google “gears 5 global chat”. Plenty of sites telling you where and how to turn it on.

What a great change. Thank you, TC. Very cool!


I have it turned on and still nothing happens when I push U on my keyboard, or R3. The command prompts don’t even show up on my screen like they used to, and the chat window never pops up at all.

I have to message other players directly and that works fine, but global chat seems to be completely gone for me.

Maybe try a reboot

well don’t worry about it, global chat is toxic beyond belief anyways so its a blessing :slight_smile:

I re-started my xbox again and now it’s working. Sorry :’-/

Awesome. @SH00BiE_D00 deserves credit for the “solution” of this thread though, not me. :slightly_smiling_face:
