this is a far shot to ask but I was under the impression that the open beta was today, I have PS4 but my 3 other friends have xbox, we were going to leave work early to play but they don't have beta codes, anyone have any extras for xbox? 3 is a lot to ask, I know. Thanks in advance

Try asking in here.

it could be a client side bug as you state I recall ww2 had something like this 2 years ago.
I really hope so. I’m having lots of fun with this game and I haven’t enjoyed a CoD MP since god knows when..

Can't really comment, not a fan headphones so I don't use them.
Might be the core of the problem though.
whatever sound is being sent to them obviously isn't delivering a same experience as an actual surround sound system.

I saw a stream and they were playing a map in night vision. Is that random? Looked so sick

So a few streams I've watched keep complaining about the sound and lack of footsteps? Any verification on this? I know it's beta, but that still sucks if true.

Flat
With no compression and no adjustments made to the mastering EQ, the flat audio mix is the one used by the Audio Team as the reference mix. When played at 75 dB, this is the “gold standard” when it comes to how the game should sound. In short, if you want to play the game loud and with the full dynamic range, this is the audio mix to select.
Keep in mind, while this is the most “pure” sounding mix, the speakers you are using (headset, home theater setup, TV speakers, etc.) ultimately determine how the audio mix is represented.
NOTE: This was the audio mix default in the 2v2 Alpha
Infinity Ward Mix
The Infinity Ward Mix does include a small bit of compression however it isn’t much different from the Flat mix. With a small boost in the lower end and a slight cut in the higher frequencies, this mix adds shape and some color to the sound along with slight compression. This mix sounds best at 65dB, slightly louder than the Flat mix.
NOTE: This is the default audio selection in the Beta
Headphone 1/2/3
The various headphone mixes were created with the wide array of different headsets available to players. As you try out each mix, you’ll notice that each mix has some sort of compression and it varies depending on which mix you select. For instance, Headphone 1 has less compression compared to Headphone 3.
TV 1/2/3
Like headphones, there are many different types of TV sets with even more varied speaker configurations. As such, the team created three different mixes that span different types of TV speakers (small, large, side mounted, etc).

No the mix that's being sent to your Astro
If there was a problem with your headphones you'd notice it in other games.
I'm using Theater and it sounds fantastic.
But your having problems because the audio isn't reproducing the audio correctly for your headphones.

It’s weird. I’m reading mix impressions about the matter. Some say we can’t hear (like me) and some say they can hear fine. Which makes me believe it’s a bug maybe

Other sounds in general is straight up mad! Gun sounds, streaks, explosions and everything else is phenomenal
Im using the infinity ward mix on my pc but on PS4 I was doing the theatrical and I thought it sounded great on my system.

"Remember, any one of these presets should give you a great experience playing Modern Warfare. If the audio sounds “off” right out of the box, try one of these other presets and see which one fits your audio setup best.

A good rule of thumb when selecting the right mix is to “tune” to the sound of a weapon firing. Since these are usually the loudest objects in the game, the peaks can function as an “marker” to judge other sounds by.

Is the dialogue too loud, but everything else sound great? Don’t forget that just under the Audio Mix settings, there are a few sliders to make your own custom mix. If you are feeling a bit nostalgic, check out the Classic hit marker sound or go full “Realism” and turn off hit marker sound effects all together. "

Really dislike Azhir's cave so far, can't seem to do well on it. Map feels too cramped and the cave itself is a haven for campers.

Too be fair all maps have campers set. Azhir's cave is a mix bag because while in the cave most of those people like camping at least killstreak became less annoying inside the cave.

This might be it yeah. I even tried to update my headset just incase but it was already up to date. Thanks for your time bro

I might try that again even though I already did try them all yesterday. Definitely going to give infinity ward mix a try as soon as I get home. Thank you man

Weird. I have an A50 and i can hear footsteps just fine. My friend has an A40. We were talking last night about how we could clearly hear footsteps and pinpoint the direction it's coming from.

Interesting. Me and my friends at the party were complaining about how we can’t hear footsteps but only one of the lads that said “I can hear it fine”

I hooked up my A50 to the PC and suddenly there’s an update for the headset. Hopefully this fixes my only issue with the game so far

I can't play yet cause I don't have early access but the game launches now. Before I would just get an error message saying I need to update my OS. We'll see tomorrow if it works.

their post says it should be live in under 3 hours the ingame message is old.

I will reinstall and give it a shot, apparently it works on every windows 1709 and above so it should be working on mine anyway (but it wasn't when I tried.)
