Audio and Video un-sync

★★★★ Novice

It happens sometimes, maybe 1-2 times if I played 4-5 hours. Sometimes the game turned to mute or partial mute in a sudden, e.g. I could hear the footstep but couldn't hear the gunshots, or sometimes the audio delays,  like you hear the voices 3 or 5 seconds later than the voice actually occurred, restart the client or start the next game would solve it.

PATHFINDER does not take damage! sparks come out but no damage done!

Major Audio Issues on Xbox

★★★★ Novice

1st off Dialogue Volume is either 0% or 100% Volume, no in-between. Footsteps for team mates are far too loud and sometimes I can hear my own footsteps twice. Also 90% of the time, I dont hear enemy footsteps even when its dead queit with no action going on. Also while yous are fixing audio, fix the audio in Airbase where it sounds like someone is redeploying in.

Audio Distortion / No Sound Cues

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Novice

Aaaarrgghh!

 

PS4 / UK

 

The amount of times today I have had sound distortion and lag combined with no sound cues from the enemy and I get ambushed. 

 

My ping is 12ms / Download is 62.3 mbps / Upload is 10.1 mbps. The issue is not my end, it is infuriating, when is the patch coming for this?

Hey all,

An update went live today and here are changes related to audio. We appreciate any feedback you can provide after playing for a day.

QUALITY OF LIFE

  • Lowered the master volume of all sounds during the character select screen through the end of the drop sequence.

  • Lowered the volume of Wraith's ambient kunai knife sound for those who are sensitive to the sound. If it is still bothersome we will remove it in a later patch.

  • Increased the volume of close proximity enemy footsteps for all Legends.

  • Increased the priority of enemy footsteps to ensure the sounds play even in heavy combat situations.

  • Slightly lowered the volume of Pathfinder footstep sounds heard from the first person view.

  • Fixed missing or quiet dryfire (out of ammo trigger click sound) and low ammo (the progressive change in sound that the gun makes as the magazine approaches empty) sounds for the R301, Hemlok, Flatline and RE45.

  • Increased the volume of the music that plays when winning a match.

  • Added more detailed audio to the Training mission.

VIDEO Proof: Enemy Footsteps not playing correctly

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: Apex Legends
Platform:PC
Please specify your platform model. PC
AMD or Nvidia Model Number NVIDIA RTX 2060
Enter RAM memory size in GB 16 GB
What is your gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name? BrokenMouseHand
Please provide your squad mates' gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name if possible.
Which Legend were you playing (if applicable)? happens with all legends
Which Legends were your squad mates using (if applicable)? happens with every combo of legends
Where did the issue occur? In a match
Which part of the map or menu were you in? If you don't remember the exact name, please describe the area or what you were trying to do in the menu. happens everywhere on the map
What were you doing when the issue occurred? E.g. respawning a squad mate at a beacon, using an ability, a squad mate left the game. either in-combat, or near combat
Did your squad mates also experience the issue? Yes
How many matches had you played in a row before the issue occurred? doesn't matter, always happens
When did this happen? (dd.mm.yy hh:mm) every single game
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? Enemy player appears suddenly having not made any audible footstep sounds, despite having run full speed. Usually you don't hear them until after they start shooting, which is often too late. It makes combat unsatisfying, and random -- reducing the tactical depth of the gameplay.
What should be happening instead? Should be able to clearly hear enemy footsteps approaching, from every direction, prioritised in the sound mix as a matter of importance
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Use audiophile grade headphones, expensive DAC, headphone amplifier, clean out your ears and then realise it makes no difference, you still can't hear enemy footsteps reliably if there are other sounds playing.
