If you don't have a mic with a headset you should really pick one up. If you have a mic but you're using it with speakers, you should really pick one up so we don't have to listen to all the echo.

Teams that use headsets are so much more effective than those who have to pause and type, or don't communicate at all. There's nothing more annoying than working with someone who you tell them to check over X, and they pause to type OK and in that short moment you get kaked because they were typing and not aiming at the spy sneaking up behind you that they saw.

Communication is definately key to teamwork, and teamwork really makes the game more fun. Like when the spy grabs your partner and he calls out because you're in the next room, and you run back to shoot the spy from behind and save him.. it's so... so... satisfying.

PC. I can't give up my mouse and keyboard!

Another fine thing, telling your teammate, "Don't move.. he's sneaking up on you. When he grabs you I'll kill him." and letting them play the bait. It's so sneaky!

Or you just plug in some cheap headphones on your speakers. My speakers have a headphones jack on the back so I don't have a problem. If you don't have on on your speakers you should go and buy a splitter (which will be like 5 euro/dollar max) and plug that in the back of your sound card and then use some cheap headphones and turn your speakers off. I don't have any trouble with echo or something. I use a normal mic to play the game... or at least if I get it working (stupid MP demo crash!!!).

I'm anal and like to cut down on as many cables as I can on my machine. Otherwise that's a good idea.

Another thing, nothing like hearing your teammate screaming "KILL HIM! I'M EXPENDABLE!" when they're being grabbed. :P

Yes yes yes, I aggree fully.

Kids, take your allowance money to the local Walmart and pick up a headset for $3.99. Please. You won't regret it.

Of course if you can afford better than you should go with something a little more expensive. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I have a Plantronics non-USB headset with a splitter switch. The one issue no-one has mentioned, though, is the soundcard settings for those with Audigy 2s. In another game, my buddies got feedback from me until I opened the audio properties in control panel and switched the input properties from "what u hear" to "microphone". Does anyone have any experience with this?

You just talk. So be careful when you're screaming because you'll give your teammate an ear full.

It's VOICE ACTIVATED.. and about the Audigy control panel.. it will cause feed back because it is Recording EVERYTHING that you hear.. and not just what you say into the mic.. it includes internal sounds from the game.. so What U hear would play every thing you hear over the mic.. and if he talked.. it would throw it straight back at him.. So just use Mic http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
