And an earlier post 2 weeks ago from yourself:

If this bugs frustrates you so much I guess playing COD for a while might be a good remedy.
But double posting things will not solve it.
I agree this should be on the quality of life Trello checker and on the list for another fix .

Battlefield V - Update 6.2

Implemented a new audio prioritization system in order to reduce occurrences of important sounds being culled due to performance limitations. This results in more controlled and stable behavior for sounds such as vehicles, footsteps and weapons.

@Crazy_horse101th I might triple post it, if you don’t like it don’t read it. Won’t get fixed if you don’t make complaints. I have been playing COD because of all the things wrong with BFV, different game, different play style so come back BF.

@Uncensorious I know they did an audio fix that fixed nothing. It’s not stable, vehicles run silent still, so do footsteps, or way to many friendly.

Re: Audio is garbage


The last patch did fix a couple of issues I had but yeah, with only so many sounds being allowed at once, things like vehicles and footsteps especially are grating on my nerves
