Counter-Strike Global Offensive(CSGO)
Whenever someone talks about first-person shooter games, the first game that hits the mind is none other than CSGO. It has become a sensation in the gaming community reaching impressive heights in terms of popularity. However, no game on this planet is free from bugs irrespective of being a massive success/fail and CSGO is no exception.
Many players have been reporting issues with their in-game audio which is restricting them from using their mic in between matches to communicate. Well, this can be frustrating as teamwork is an important factor in the game which can only be achieved when teammates use their mics to communicate. So, if you suffering from the same problem, follow the below-given steps to fix it.
CSGO- Mic Not Working & Audio Issues Fixed
First of all, open the game and head over to the Video Settings. There you will find a Multicore Rendering option. Turn it to “ON”. This will prevent most of the audio delays in-game.
Now, go to the Audio Tab and select the following options-
Make sure your Master Volume option is not muted.
Then, in the Audio Output Configuration, select the preferred option according to the Headphones you are using. Recommended setting- “Stereo Headphones”.
Now, set your Audio Device to your default Audio Input Device i.e. your headphones.
Make sure that the Advanced 3D Audio Processing is turned OFF.
Now, Select the “Press to use mic” option in the Enable Voice option.
After doing these, Go to Device Manager and do the following-
Find the Audio Input and Output option and right-click on your default headphones.
Now, click on the Update Driver option and make sure to click on the Search Automatically for Updating Drivers option.
Doing all these should fix your issues. And if it doesn’t, visit Steam and initiate a file checkup of CSGO to fix the corrupt files.
