Can anyone hear enemy footsteps?

Call of Duty Black Ops II Wii-U

Probably won't just cause I posted it.  I've picked one major issue with each game so far (each game that had patches anyway) and bumped it till I got tired of bumping it with no luck.

Black Ops: I made a Region search function thread.

MW3: an akimbo nerf thread.

And Black Ops 2 it's the silent enemy footstep thread.

The first two never got fixed or any acknowledgement from a dev.  Hoping to have better luck with this one.  Based on my history with these it probably would have been better if someone else made the thread.  Maybe they would have better luck.

Well technically they did nerf the FMG, instead of the bullets going straight from the barrels, they started to fire so that it formed a "X" or something, too bad that it just seemed to make them even more lethal in close and barely did anything in long range

If I remember correct that is.

Well in the end, yes they did do a mini nerf but half the people who used that gun actually knew what they were doing so it wasn't a problem to them.

Yeah, I didn't count that nerf.  It got nerfed 3 more times on the Xbox if my memory serves me right.  I wanted THAT nerf and some people said even that wasn't enough, though it did make a difference.  Let's get back on topic though before this turns into an akimbo debate.

@Mynahbird:  Yeah, that's about where it belongs right now.  Dead silence too.  It does silence your footsteps which is nice.  You still make noise when jumping over things.  I don't think past games did that.  Still silent footsteps for you doesn't help when you can't hear the enemy anyway.

In MW3 one of my team mates used dead silence all the time, and I used sitrep, which made my footsteps quiet to me, but made your enemies footsteps much louder. But when I was near my yeam mate, I couldn't hear his steps, but I could always hear when he jumped out of windows etc and landed on the floor. So yes, it did do that in MW3 at least.

I tried using awareness, and could not hear any footsteps and I just placed this perk in the useless slot.

I read that one of the Treyarch devs, Vonderhaar, said on a live stream today that they're not touching footsteps because he thought the ones on BO1 were too loud. :/

You got a link to that? 

And if he is saying that then WHAT IS HE THINKING??  BO1 was fine.   MW3 was fine unless you had sitrep pro. Then it was just stupid.  Hear some guy running down that long alley on Resistance and just wait for him....he's still coming....STILL coming.  Ok now I can shoot him.  But Black Ops was fine except I hated the way the footsteps sounded.  He also says the lag is fine and asked for videos showing the issue.  He got a bunch of them but I haven't looked into any responses from him. 

That in itself is just wrong though.  If you could hear the enemy as well as your teammates then it wouldn't be a problem.  It makes no sense to make your team stomp around but only make the enemy footsteps audible in certain situations.  I just don't get it.

Here's a thought on that.  He thought footsteps were OP so they nerfed that because they didn't want you to hear the enemy coming.  But then they turn around and let you see them coming by aiming through wall.  WT...I'll leave out the last letter.
