Twice now I have heard a player who is able to use global VOIP. The first time, the player seemed unaware he was broadcasting. The second time the player to be attempting to use global voip.
- Legacy ID
Unknown. I've heard it happen twice.
I have done it and there are a few ways to trigger it:
- Commit Suicide and as you are on the You're Dead screen, commit suicide again. (This was told to me by my friend who triggered the bug and I can confirm I heard him in-game)
- Dying and re-spawning, it seems if you just die you can trigger it, to disable it no matter how you trigger the global VOIP, press control.
this happend to me as well. I think this needs to be a high priority as it ruins the game. The first time I joined someone was stuck and it was just them breathing, chewing, ect. Very annoying almost made me want to quit right then and there. This went out for 5min before I left to another server.
It seems when a player dies and does not respawn or when a player goes unconscious and tries to talk all players in server can hear player talking in Voip. Also seems that when player is talking in global it kicks some players from server.
I heard a player who had his global mic on and I think he was broadcasting unconscious because he was arguing with his wife and meanwhile he was trying to mend to the baby which was beside him... I wasnt able to contact him to turn it down.
It seems to be caused by holding down the talk key when you die then let go of the key, on respawn your voice gets sent over global without holding down they key (it stays on and there is no indication of it).
Oh god yeah this happens, I was in a server today where this one guy somehow had global voip on constantly while he was on teamspeak... spamming the entire server constantly. I muted every player in the server and it did nothing.
Hi there JJRimmer,
It is true that players are often unaware they are broadcasting.
The issue is players that are broadcasting in Direct when they are killed/respawn continue to broadcast but it uses the Global channel instead.
Cheers for feedback.
This happens so many times. The player seems to be unaware that he is talking and it can be heard by everyone. It is so annoying because it scares you when it happens and there is no way to mute unless you leave the server.
If you lower the VOIP slider in the configure options to Zero you can still hear people close to you but you no longer hear the people that are transmitting to everyone.
Hope this helps solve this somehow
