Wasn't it the same way in Blops?  I remember the footsteps were almost non-existent there as well.

I am upset by this as well.  I am hoping for a buff.

I hope they dont..

its a perk being able to soundwhore people by itself.

AND ITS REALLY EASY TO DO:

it will only cost you 3/10 CAC points..

you will need 3th perk thingy get dead silence+awereness and you can sound whore for days even when running around..

its good the way it is.. to get something that powerfull you should need to give up stuff IMO

Have any of you tried changing the presets in the MP menu? They have presets like a headset has now, one of which makes higher tones louder (footsteps, reloads etc)

Supercrunch is supposed to be the best setting for hearing footsteps but it doesn't help much, if any.

I have to agree with dstr001 here.

Dan, have you switched your audio preset to "Headphones"?

I own a pair of Astro A40's & did a bit of testing in combat training with Awareness and I could hear footsteps. Maybe not as loud as what MW3 had with Sitrep Pro but I could still hear it.

Funny enough I don't even use soundwhore perks anymore. Just Tactical Mask, Dexterity & Engineer. Not because Awareness is not as effective as Sitrep Pro but really because I prefer using the other third tier perks.

Yea man,  I have it on super crunch, makes it ok, but not as good as bo1.

Iv got the turtle beach px5's pretty good headset.

I can play without footsteps tho, just a shame to have to change a recipe that has worked in all other cods.

I've seen a number of complaints about audio tweeted to Vahn (mostly complaints about the sound perks) so I wouldn't be suprised if the devs do tweaks to it. (possible buffs to Awareness)

I can understand why they did decrease it due to the complaints about Sitrep Pro countering Dead Silence especially for S&D in MW3.

Give it time. There is a chance they might do tweaks to the sound perks.

I really hope they buff the footsteps, especially with the new map style. There's a lot of different directions to watch and it's almost impossible to do so in a game mode like FFA without hearing footsteps and FFA is pretty much all I play. I really like everything else so far in Black Ops 2 and really want to love this game. The lack of footsteps is creating a lot of frustration for me though, I can't seem to play more than an hour without finding myself getting angry. I used to play Blops for hours on end and can honestly say it's my favorite game of all time but I really hope they fix the one problem I have with this game, cause for me it's a pretty big one.
