no footsteps, any1 used awareness yet?

used to rely on being able to hear people close to me and this is without a stupid headset. only thing is nobody seems to make any noise and all of a sudden there is a guy behind you and your dead. Has anybody used awareness to see if it makes much of a difference?

I haven't yet.  But from what I've heard (From alot of posts) is the awareness does nothing.  COUNTLESS times my death could have been prevented, because they can walk right up to me, and knife me.  It's as if they're wearing slippers.  I don't understand how something like this got through the game test phase.  It's just rediculous.  I can hear my footstep just fine, but the enemies? Notta...

I've posted in multiple threads like this, and nobody seems to know why.
One thread said that they were going to look into it, but nothing so far.

Other people I've spoken to have said that it's intentional, but I highly doubt this.
Why would they sell headsets specifically for these games if they purposely made the footsteps inaudible.

I really really hope this is a bug, or I might not spend as much time on this game as I want to.

You might say you don't need footsteps to be good at the game, and you'd be right, but it definitely adds a new level to the gameplay.

I'm having the same problem. Has anyone tried playing with the sound settings? Right now mine is on "Headphones", I have not tried any of the other ones yet.

I tried all of them, except the "this is really loud" one.

Even tried different presets on my headset. (TurtleBeach Earforce Delta)
Nada.

I tried headphones and the standard sound setup and neither actually made enemy footsteps audible.  I'm gonna give the developers the benefit of a doubt and say that it has to be a bug, there's no way they're incompetent enough to purposely make enemy footsteps completely inaudible.

/i have tried Awareness on a local game vs bots. It makes a slight difference but theres always so many other sounds that it only helps if you are in a quiet moment

You can't hear the footsteps.  I've had several occasions where someone was running behind or next to me and you would never know they were there.  This has to be a bug, there is no point to having Dead Silence or Awareness.  Also, as it is right now with the lag a lot of times you need that split second of lead time knowing someone is coming.  I've had a lot of games with the same old "I'm .5 seconds behind the other guy".
