Muting Players in Game

A Tutorial for Counter-Strike: Source

Muting a player is a very useful feature. Unfortunately, not many people use it. I suggest you start using it now, because it will save you from many hardships and annoying microphone spammers. The process is pretty simple, but I'll explain it to you, through the wonders of pictures.
  1. Press the Escape key (ESC) to get to the Counter Strike: Source menu.
  2. Once there, locate the player list item in the menu. Click it.
  3. After you've clicked it, a window will appear, displaying all the users in the server. It will also show you their Steam friends name, if they've set one.
  4. Next, you'll want to locate the player you want to mute. Once you've found them, click on their name. The background of their name will turn orange.
  5. Once they are selected, go ahead and click the "Mute in-game voice" button.
  6. Well, that's it. Now the player is muted, and you'll never hear them again, unless you unmute their voice (By click the "Unmute in-game voice" button), or they rejoin.
Now that you know how to mute a player, PLEASE stop complaining about people microphone spamming! If you do, you're just complaining of either your ignorance or laziness, of which none of us want to hear. Thanks, theY4Kman

    I don't understand how people can make themselves immune to this muting option. Do you?

    Pros: Nice and simple. Many players don't even know how to use this. Cons: None. Notes: Bad for people who want to use voice annoys. Mute one person and you can hear the rest :)

    Pros: Nice one, now everybody on the FPSB Server could decide if to listen to the mic spamming or not. Improvements: keep on making Tutorials about Things like that. Notes: I found out how to mute people after my first 10 mins of actual online gameplay :O

    It's a shame people are too stupid to figure this out on their own. Great idea!

    Useful, although I guess that everyone who already wanted to mute someone knows how it works. Still, it's well written and you provide loads of pics - 9/10.
