I’m wondering if this is a global thing or device specific.
I have two different setups with some logitech z506 5.1 surround sound speakers coming through an onboard realtek hd audio driver. I also have a logitech g933 gaming headset.
This “issue” is occuring with both of these no matter what type of configuration or surround sound options I use.
I know one of the bug fixes that went in adjusted the sound of combat from far away by a good deal but this is seemingly unrelated.
Certain sound effects in the game either do not play at all or are extremely quiet compared to what they used to be.
Before when you would get headshot by another player, the crit sound would play on your end signifying that you took critical damage and wouldn’t be left wondering how you died from full health. This is no longer the case it seems, the sound effect is just that of a normal shot.
Certain ultimate call outs are also not triggering, I’ve found myself blindsided several times by dragonstrikes, dragonblades, and deadeyes where the ult call out simply does not happen. I believe it has occured with Reaper’s Death Blossom as well. I have not witnessed this with any other ults only Hanzo, Genji, Reaper, and McCree.
Footsteps in certain places also seem to have reduced volume or are completely quiet…I’d like to know if this is a known Global issue or if there is something I can do on my end to fix this…I’m up to date on all my system drivers and I’ve tried running a repair on the game files to no avail.
