So i’m having a sound issue I can’t seem to fix. Basically, randomly, at least half of the little “tick” sounds the game makes when you successfully hit a shot don’t play for me. I still get the little white cross graphic on the crosshair when the shot hits, just no actual sound to go with it. It wouldn’t be a big deal but the inconsistent feedback is really distracting at times.
I’ve tested it in the practice range and the bug happens with several characters e.g. tracer, soldier etc. It happens at all ranges (even point blank) and is definitely not the result of a miss.
Another sound can be heard with some characters like tracer or widow as well. Though, I guess it always plays but you don’t normally notice it. An example would be the metal bullet impact sound on the metal bodies of the training bots.
So far I’ve tried (without success):
- Reinstalling the game
- Reinstalling my sound drivers
- Different audio devices including: bluetooth headphones, audio jack connected speakers, my monitor’s speakers, my laptop’s speakers
- Enabling and disabling dolby atmos - this is a suggested fix for a known and different (I think) audio issue.
It turns out it is a few other things like collecting a health pack that are affected
