To enable Highlights, load GeForce Experience before you boot Warzone, enter the settings, and ensure “In-Game Overlay” is on. Then load Warzone, and you’ll be promoted to activate Highlights.

And at the end of matches and your session, you can review Highlights, trim and edit, and upload to YouTube and social media. Alternatively, access them via GeForce Experience’s Gallery at any time by pressing Alt+Z.
