The Walkie-Talkie is an item and tool that the player will always have both in single player and multiplayer. The player will always spawn with one and it allows the player to speak to any other player using their voice.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

By default the player can press Q, which will select the Walkie Talkie in the players left hand. Players with a working microphone or headset can use the walkie talkie to verbally communicate while it is equipped. To hear communications, you do not need to have it out.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Similar to hold a lighter, flashlight, cassette player, and left hand-held items
  • It is possible that it slows the players swing speed while holding it, so it's advised that if the player is chopping wood to put it away while chopping.
  • The noise of the Walkie-Talkie static may create sound the cannibals can hear (untested).
  • You can find the Walkie-Talkie in your inventory with the "Talky Walky" name.
