This could be an issue with your sound card. Get to testing loud-volume .flak s on your machine. Your headset also might not like the high quality sound. Try to troubleshoot before you submit a bug, thanks.

This happens for me as well in combination with my personal weapon sounds not making any noise. @Ph1294, can you try not to come off as such a pretentious twat, fairly certain it is not a sound card issue considering every other game I run has no issues.

You sure it's not the crack sound that comes when a projectiled is fired towards you, and that happens IRL too. If not sounds like a serious issue.

Same issue here, it seems like the game is missing a lot of sounds and attempts to loop specific sound sets; every once in a while it fails to overlay properly and makes a ripping sound.

Contradictory to what the above posts have said I think it's those with good sound cards who get this problem where higher quality demands better overlay.

I am sure it isn't a sound card issue because I use this headset in Arma II OA and it works without a hitch aside from not having 5.1 surround sound in Arma II i love it. Otherwise the sounds just occur randomly.

I do not get any screeching but I do get random buzzing.
