Why can't I hear or speak to teammates

I’m on Steam and have confirmed that my microphone is working. When I join games with my friends in say Borderlands, we can hear each other fine.

So why when I randomly join games in PvP or PvE do I almost NEVER hear or able to speak with my teammates?

Not being able to communicate sucks balls in PvP.

By default Battleborn is Push-To-Talk. I think it’s either the T or the Y key that allows you to talk in game using voice. Unless of course you go into the options and turn off PTT.


Push to talk is on by default. The voice chat key is ‘t’, but you can turn off push to talk as well if you like.
