Not sure if there are more people that use their mics in other game modes, but usually in infinity slayer(not big team), theres only one person with a mic. whats up with that?

I've noticed that too. And when they do have a mic you only hear faint sounds from them every now and then. What's the point of even using a mic if you're not gonna talk?

I always have my mic on me, but have it turned off unless the rest of my team is communicating, which so far is never unless I have joined one of my friends.

Considering how strict the voice chat restrictions are in terms of banning, people probably just don't want to risk things.

I only really play Big Team Slayer and this does seem to be the norm for me too, I don't really mind tho, last few games I've actively played on the 360 have been severely mar'd by the sheer douchbaggery of their community's.

You're right a lot of people don't talk, but I don't mind it. The times people do have mics it's normally one of three people. 1) the guy that trash talks before, during and after the match, even if he sucks, 2) the squeaker that sings, makes sound effects, talks to himself about how he just died etc., anything to make noise without pause until the end of the match, or 3) the person who has their mic on and you hear a constant noise from something in their room, be it their music or someone talking in the background to someone else.... Yeah silence is great lol.

i actually enjoy people who talk trash, i find it funny/entertaining. Sometimes more people talking makes the overall experience more enjoyable and like your actually playing against real people.

Some of them are funny I'll give you that. Some of them I just mute since it has nothing to do with me anyway lol.
