Lol yeah I was going to unlock Awareness when I Prestiged but what's the point until its fixed ? So went with ghost instead .
Stereotypical ghost noob. Jesus.
Please define what a "stereotypical Ghost noob" is, or what makes the stereotype up?
Dead Silence its useless on this game, since its a default for everyone.
I have a decent headset (X41s) and I am quite used to using my ears in CoD.
Black Ops 1 was brilliant for it, and MW3 was also pretty good. I was expecting BO2 to have great situational sound effects, but on unlocking "Awareness" I was sorely disappointed.
I do hope it is fixed soon.
I think they're a bit too quiet as well, I can just about hear them but if anyone nearby is shooting or there's any other noise then I struggle.
Listening for audio cues to give you the advantage does not make you a sound whore
Excellent original post, which I completely agree with. By completely ignoring the sound of players moving around the map, Treyarch have ditched an important part of the game. I don't know why they would do that (perhaps Turtle Beach didn't stump up a bung),
The game is now a rusher's wet dream that's too chaotic to play strategically.
One other point, why do your own footfall noises always sound like you're running across wooden boards, even if you're in the middle of a desert, or on a steel plate? It's just cheap neglect of sound utilisation.
So are you using headset presets? If so, does it make a difference which preset?
totally agree why are the enemy wearing slippers yet my team mates and myself can be heard? seriously i cant here a guy sprinting up metal stairs behind me... totally F%^&ed!
