In the newest update, I (and everybody else) noticed that a lot of guns are not noticeable changed/louder compared to their previous versions.

One of my favorite weapons, the unupgraded frontier phantom, now sounds like every other phantom, whereas before it was really soft and wouldn't hurt my ears with a sharp click (more like a very soft thud). Now all the guns are a little hurtful to fire (my volume isn't too high - I think). I don't see how this contributes greatly to the game in anyway as the 3rd person weapon sounds remain unchanged.

Now my favorite phantom also hurts my ears, and these changes don't seem to be reflected or talked about in the notes.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks for the bug report! The team is looking into this because a few skins were impacted. If you all notice more, leave a comment so we can test and fix it if it's indeed broken!

Ty, I sent a note over to the Agents team so they'll look at this to see if there's an issue.

Hey! I noticed that the oni phantom sounds totally different, it used to be my favorite skin just because of the noise it made but it sounds bad now and hurts my ears :c

Is it the firing audio? Kill sound?

The spectrum classic sounds off too, it has a weird clicky sound when firing now which feels annoying while using it

thanks for the report - we had a few other reports of this today too

I think the cryostasis vandal was affected, it sounds a lot more like the default vandal now. Also, the prime classic seems to have an higher pitched clicking sort of sound.

Which sounds? The firing sound is default so is it the kill sound? Other sounds?

The sound of the sovereign ghost sounds like a default ghost now, the sound effect can barely be heard

Is it the firing sound? Kill sound?

hey! this isnt a sound but theres a visual bug (not too important but is still annoying) with the blue variant of the neo frontier axe, im not sure about the other variants as i dont have them but an extra line (the knife movement outline thing?) appears when i right click (i can send a vid in dms if thats easier to understand im not really sure how to explain it but u should be able to notice it)

yes can you upload a video and link it to me here?

The glitchpop classic sounds like low ammo when firing in single round mode. Also most of the phantoms sounds weird

We're aware of the Glitchpop Classic and looking to fix it.

Can you send me a list of the Phantoms you noticed so I can see if we missed any (we have a bunch on our list of bugs right now)? What we have so far: Oni/Recon Phantom, Glitchpop Phantom, Prime2 Phantom, and Ion Phantom.
