I played Bf5 since launch and have several hundred hours of playtime. And i really wonder how the sound did pass the alpha and even the beta.


It occurs in every game that enemies  rund and jump a few Meters behind you or beside you and you dont hear a single scratch. The sound isnt too quiet, its simply not there.

So you tried to fix the problem and failed 2 times. But making food steps louder doesnt solv a problem if sounds are missing. Making no sound louder is still no sound.

Also its pretty much impossible to locate gun shots. the directional sound is very very bad compared to other games.


on the other hand you hear voices of other players even if they are  very far away.


Vehicles like tanks have electric engines in WW2... They overroll me because i hear them when they are like 5 feed away from me. How load do you think were tanks in ww2, hmm?


Lets face the truth. the Sound system would need a whole rework. And i think the game is lost already, it would be too expensive to rework the complete system.I just dont want to see this in upcoming battlefield titles. Please take more time in alpha and beta testing and dont rush the next game again.

Core features like sound need to work in a multiplayer  shooter.


Thanks for reading


Oh and maybe implement a system for reporting bugs, this is so user unfriendly!

Sound quality overall is better than other games on the market but for a title in the Battlefield franchise, it's quite sub-par.

How the bayonet and footsteps haven't been fixed by now is outrageous and beyond me
