Warzone players have blown up the game’s developers, claiming that the BR’s audio has deteriorated even more after Season 4 Reloaded and is now “game-breaking” and “absolute rubbish”.
Warzone has had some invasive issues since its March 2020 launch, with bugs, glitches, and trickery all dominating the discourse surrounding the CoD Battle Royale.
One of the less prominent issues is game audio, crucial in a BR so that players know when and where enemies are coming in to take them out.
However, there have long been complaints from players that the game’s audio is lacking, with many claiming it pinpoints enemy locations almost as well as it should.
Warzone Players Claim Audio Is “Worse” After Season 4 Reload
Now, following the July 28 Season 4 Reloaded patch, players are claiming that the game’s audio is even more problematic than before.
One player highlighted their issues in a July 31 Reddit post, asking if it “sunk to a groundbreaking level” for other players too. Over 100 upvotes at the time of writing suggest this to be the case.
“I can’t hear sh*t,” they complained. “I could have two guys behind me sprinting and not hearing anything at all. People climbing ladders next to me with no dead silence and there’s 0 audio. Watch a kill cam of a player sprinting in circles in a room right next to me me and I would think I was alone in the building I feel like it wasn’t that bad a few weeks ago?”
Following the sentiment was another Redditor who claimed that audio has gotten even worse than they thought possible.
They noted, “Footstep noise is still absolute rubbish, but now I can’t even hear someone cut their parachute and land on top of my head (this was a very clear noise).”
Of course, players want consistently good audio to ensure they are always aware of their surroundings and minimize unnecessary deaths.
At the moment Warzone’s audio is not delivering. Raven has not responded to the complaints, but any future updates may do well to allay players’ concerns about troublesome audio.
