This was a known issue in the beta, many streamers complained about it as well. How this bug made it to live is beyond me.

This was on occasion happening in beta, but now it's more frequent I noticed in the live version. The sound would cut out in the middle and it's hard to know where the enemies are without hearing them.

someone in a previous post had a potential temp. fix for this, in the speaker settings on your PC, turn off "Allow appicaltions to take exlusive control of this device"

i have not played long enough to confirm if this works yet though. but yeah.. it needs to be fixed and i am/was having the same issue.

EDIT: it did not fix it, its just less frequent it seems like.

Just an opinion, I think we're actually in the beta right now up until Feb. 22. If issues get to be to much of a constant, I'm going to wait until Feb. 22's game launch bug fix update is implemented.
