I'll just be running around and then the sound of a zombie biting or somebody drinking or someone reloading comes up. This happens even when I am in a city or an open field and I am sure there is no zombie/player making these sounds.
- Legacy ID
Just walk around town.
I get this too, are these the 'placeholder' sounds for what will eventually replace the text ui for character condition maybe? Or placeholders for upcoming environmental sounds? Was freaking me out for at least an hour, zombies drinking sodas all around me in the woods.
Confirmed, had Zombie aggro sound playing on and off for my friend and me for around an hour. We both kept checking and there was no zombies in sight, let alone aggroed on us.
I also keep hearing the drinks can opening sound when I am the only player nearby.
This is happening to me as well - constantly. Sometimes it's worse, and sometimes better. Just now I was hiding in a building in Chernarus for a few minutes because of an unusual high number of these phantom sounds. It wasn't until I realised the order of the sounds made no sense that I decided it was just the usual bug. Kind of a big issue since you can't ever be sure if what you hear is a potential danger or not. I experience this in every single game session without fail.
Not all sounds do this, but there's a certain few that are quite frequent:
- splitting stacks
- opening soda cans
- canteen drinking
- wet/dry food eating
- loading (less common but all the more scary)
