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.

Shoot an M4 have someone with you and see if your friend can hear the gunshots.
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.
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.
