Awareness working as intended?

I'm not sure if its just me or not, but is awareness working as intended?

I've tried playing a couple games with it on, and I notice nothing different.  Played MULTIPLE games with Dead Silence + Awareness and I couldn't notice an improvement in hearing others' footsteps.  And the other players were not using dead silence.

Even sitting in one spot I couldn't hear foot steps better.

it's totally stupid, you should hear there footsteps even without awareness and better with it, but you can't hear them at all with or without it you can hear your own footsteps and your team mates sobv why are the enemy walking around in slippers it's pathetic!  also a total waste of 2 perks in the game..

complete waste of a perk until they patch it,on a realy quiet area of a map you can just about hear footsteps with awareness on but with headset volume up realy realy loud which isnt very pleasent one the ears when you get into the thick of the action

Couldnt agree more i tried every setting on the Turtle Beach Tango's I got for this game and with or without it makes no difference whatsoever. In fact kind of dissapointed as i seem to only be able to hear my own and my team mates footsteps pretty much even with 300 headphones oh well a design development miss

Definately failed with Awareness, no doubt they'll patch it eventually, but hopefully sooner rather than later

me too! got awareness perk so excited about it to try. during the game the enemy is so near for me to be able to hear it . and im dead already. I felt that the radius of AWARENESS is far from SITREP PRO of MW3. ive been using a tritton 720ax.

Awareness doesn't only make footsteps louder, but all actions from the enemy. I used it last night and thought it was just fine the way it is. You can hear their footsteps and even the direction they're in (I use cheap X-12's).

Dead Silence (OT): Dead Silence I found also makes the enemy's footsteps just that much louder because you don't hear yourself. My guess is that some of you are used to the ridiculous post patch SRP from MW3..

im only speaking for myself here, but i couldnt use SRP from MW3 coz i couldnt get used to how loud the footsteps were haha. But i've tried a few times now running Awareness and Dead Silence and even if im not moving i cant hear any enemy footsteps even when they are close by. I have Turtle Beach XP500 headset and using same sound settings as i did for MW3 so i dont understand. If you say u can hear things fine, i might try changing settings up a bit n see how i go

I sort of don't understand how these perks are not combined. In MW2 & 3 I felt the louder enemy footsteps was pointless because my own were always overpowering them anyway (though never used the perk post SRP buff as prefered DS).

I have just about always only used DS so that I would not hear my own footsteps so I can hear the enemy. Seems they have removed that ability so I'll probably just stick to the perk that allows you to see equipment unless I find it actually useful. Might change when I unlock it but right now its sounding just like Eavesdrop from CoD4, a nice idea but useless in reality.
