Don't know when but i've used it today just for fun and i could hear footsteps loud and clear, don't forget to put sound setting on supercrunch. I know in the first week Awareness was useless, it did nothing.
hmm not sure about the first week.. but it sounds the same to me, i always use it. so that might be the reason lol
and cut the music out to all you want on are in game sounds as music helps to drown out those back ground noises. i will also test this tonight lol
all audio has been better since the last hotfix IMO. course if we had better release notes we might have known that. or, im just crazy. but its been better. not BLOPS1 good, but better.
Yes, footsteps aren't ridiculous as in MW3 but on Turbine or Hijacked the footsteps are more clear to hear than before, it saved my ass few times today while capturing B.
