My friends and I have been noticing that audio from outside of your FoV sometimes just… literally doesn’t play at all.
I can’t count how many times I’ve been melee’d in the back before I even knew someone was there, or I’ll hear their footsteps and then half of a second later I’m dead from a melee to the back. And before you say “Get gid and read the radar!” The radar range, combined with sprint speed, does very little to actually help notice an attack from behind before it happens. I’ve been playing halo since CE and “reading the radar” has never been a problem for me.
I’ve actually been full on blasted from behind (ayyy) with an AR and didn’t know what was going on until I was dead.
This is not an issue with my headset or my audio settings, as this doesn’t happen anywhere else but in Infinite.
I’m hoping that it’s a bug that they are aware of, but in the case they’re not, how have you guys been doing regarding audio?
Also radar range is doodoo, please bring it back to the 25m it’s been for the past 20 years.
