How to Vote Kick AFK Players in World War Z?

To vote-kick an inactive (or, indeed, simply annoying) player in World War Z, the first step is to go into the Options. Then, go into the Party section (Triangle on PlayStation 4). Highlight the player that you want to get rid off. Select said player (X on PlayStation), and then select Vote to Kick. Now, all that’s left is to wait for the others to cast their vote. Which, of course, will depend on the feelings of the rest of your party.

Now, all that said, according to Reddit user Bloke_on_the_Left, the game does include a system that automatically kicks out inactive players. However, if you don’t have the patience to wait for that, though, and your party isn’t cooperating with the vote, you can always gun the offending player down. After all, what is friendly fire for? If anything, reaching the decision to outright kill someone who is ticking you off is easier than relying on your team mates to agree to kick someone. Because you can make it unilaterally. This especially goes if you’re playing with a bunch of randos.

So, those are the different methods that you can use to get rid of AFK and other undesirable players in World War Z.

      Tried to play a session on new York hell and high water on extreme difficulty. Joined in on a game session with apparently expert game players and found out for the very first time that they can kick you out of the game if they feel your gaming skills aren’t good enough. First time something like this happened since I started playing online, but now I know everyone out there won’t tolerate amateur game players like myself. It made me feel lower than dirt when I saw this happening. I guess I don’t have what it takes to survive the fictional zombie apocalypse. Knew I should’ve just stayed out of the way
