Weird, so the recent update some how affected certain USB headsets from what we can tell so far. Hopefully they can find a fix soon ! I also hope it didn't shy many new players away from the game during the release. ****EDIT: Looks like they already fixed it with the latest patch! Thanks guys!
Hey there I am actually having a very similar issue. Sound was perfect until the release. My issue seems a bit worse. I'm losing complete pockets of audio. As an example, I could be getting hit with a lightning gun and none of the audio is being picked up at all for a few moments. *I have a Logitech G35 headset.
