I managed to get myself into a firefight, I yelled out for help and my friend was supposed to come back me up, he didn't know where I am, because he didn't hear where the gunshots were coming from.

How many channels was his sound setup at?

If by channels you mean 5.1 and those things? He had Virtual 7.1 (Steelseries Siberia v2 w/ USB Sound Card) I have the same headset, and I heard those gunshots loud and clear.

Audio settings. Crank it up to 128.

Me and my friends get same issue at random.

We have different sound setup and systems. But at the times can't hear gunshots from players near us and who fire while we look at them (at distances less than 50 meters). Also there is no animation of firing - no flame from muzzle or any movement of player.

And my setup: win8 64bit, G35 usb headset. In audio setting number of sources is set to 128

its very random glitch. noticed it only once too.

Sound sampling settings in windows affect hearing distance. This occurred in the mod when my settings were lower than a friends and he could hear my M107 at 750m and I could only hear him at 550m

Very rare but i can confirmed this bug with a Mosin. A friend got shot from a building without any sound. There were other people who couldn't hear where the gunshot came from. We found him later after he tried to shoot someone else.

Thank you pshot, I think the devs should address this bug immediately.
