Contextual tap is an important setting that can prevent accidental actions in high-octane situations in Warzone 2.
The setting lets you choose if you want to interact with objects or reload in various situations.
Contextual Tap/Prioritize Function automatically kicks in and performs the action that you prioritize.

Contextual Tap is a very important setting in Warzone 2 that allows you to interact with objects with a single button tap. The same button is used for different functions in Warzone 2. If players prefer to instantly interact with objects, like say a car or a door, there is no need to hold down the button, allowing for instant interaction rather than holding down the button and wasting those precious microseconds in a fast-paced firefight. 

For example, you can use your Square/X  to reload your gun, but when you are next to an interactive object, the same key can be used to interact with it and it will interact with just a tap. 

What is Contextual Tap in Warzone 2

Contextual Tap is a quality-of-life setting that allows the game to change how you interact with objects. It is called Prioritize Function in-game and it can help you have an easier time getting around quickly and seamlessly. 

Here is an example of a  situation where the feature kicks in. Imagine you are next to a door and you also need to reload your gun. If your keybind allows you to reload and interact using the same button, Contextual Tap/Prioritize Function kicks in and performs the action that you prioritize. The other option is still available to you but you need to hold the button down longer.

How to Turn On Prioritize Function in Warzone 2.0

Here’s how you can enable Contextual tap/Prioritize Function in Warzone 2.0

  1. Launch Warzone

  2. Head to the Settings menu and go to Controller settings

  3. Find the Interact/Reload Behavior option

  4. Choose Prioritize Interact or Prioritize Reload

Prioritize Reload is the preferred option for most players but you can choose whichever option suits you best. Prioritize Reload is helpful if you need to engage in combat while Prioritize Interact is the better option for playing objectives. 

This feature is very important for controller players as they have access to fewer keys compared to mouse and keyboard. You should identify which of the two options you are comfortable with and choose accordingly.
