How to stop Cuff chat in Forspoken

If you wish to stop Cuff chat in Forspoken, you are in luck.

The talking bracelet that helps the main character of Forspoken - Frey - navigate through Athia can be off-putting to some players. The incessant chatter of Cuff the deuteragonist can get on players' nerves, and the dialogue can often make some players cringe.

Luckily, Forspoken has a banter slider to make your Cuff sidekick shut up, and we're going to show you how to access it. So, let's get right into it!

How to stop Cuff chat in Forspoken

Forspoken has an impressive array of settings that allows you to do anything from automating busywork to stopping Cuff's notorious chatter. Well, you cannot entirely stop its yapping, but you can control the frequency with which it yaps.

So, here is how to stop Cuff chat in Forspoken:

  • Head over to the Accessibility Settings tab of the Settings Menu.
  • Scroll down to the Cuff Settings section, and you’ll see a Cuff Chat Frequency option.
  • To adjust how frequently Cuff speaks up, turn Cuff chat frequency from high to low or minimal.

If it is set to minimal, Cuff will only speak up when necessary. Low means a standard amount of video game banter, but it is still quite annoying. So, we recommend you opt for minimal talk.

In case you are playing on PS5, make sure Cuff doesn’t talk to you through the speaker on your controller. This feature is enabled by default, but you can turn it off by going to the sound settings menu.

Is Cuff in Forspoken useful?

Cuff is Frey's companion during her time in Athia. Although its constant chatter is unbearable, it is a pretty good guide who gives her information about a person or a place.

One of the things we like about Cuff is that it can take hits in Frey's place to reduce the damage she endures and to allow her to counterattack. Also, it can examine enemies to provide Frey with important information, such as an enemy's strengths and weaknesses.

Another useful thing about Cuff is that Frey can use it to scan Belfries to reveal any nearby points of interest or potential threats. With its mouth sealed, Cuff is an excellent buddy to have around.
