    The sounds that were silents were survivor's breathing and walking sounds.

    This happens in ANY map at any time

    It happened to me today and yesterday around 4 pm

    I have no logs, this happened a bit ago, but it's kind of big and weird.

    DWIGHT makes absolutely no noise when being vomited on by the plague.

    Only Dwight, we tested it in KYF and everything. It's... odd.

    • What sound(s) was silent: Many of my own Survivor sounds. Walking, Running, Breathing, Injured Sound (as I was injured), Self-Caring was also silent. After I full healed myself or perhaps when I stopped crouching after healing some of my sounds returned to normal. I did not make any footstep sounds ALL match.

    I'm hoping with the information you're requesting from the Community you can see details about the match on your end and that's why we don't need to provide what Perks were used or further details.

    • In case it helps narrow things down: This match had Nea, Bill, Kate and Yui against an Oni


    Thank you for taking a look into this bug. Maybe this will change the tune to: "99 little bugs in the game, 99 little bugs. Take one down, patch it around , 98 bugs in the game!"

    **** I managed to record my encounters with silent survivors ****


    please note:

    • Your platform: PS4
    • What sound(s) was silent: Injured survivor (the Obsession, specifically)
    • The map you were playing on: DISTURBED WARD
    • The time frame when the error occurred (The date and time you had the issue): JUNE 28 around 5:50 AM (Riyadh, SA)

    In the 2nd video, the survivor's grunts of pain were audible at first. However after becoming the Obsession (Decisive Strike) he became totally silent. It appears to me that the Obsession is bugged without a doubt... but nevertheless there's still a bug for survivors in the dying state, regardless if they're the obsession or not.

    • What sound(s) was silent: Another survivor’s injured sounds became silent while I was healing them. Interestingly, they were making moans of pain and I was making running breathing sounds while running towards them, then when I began to heal them their moans stopped but my running sounds continued on a loop for the duration of the heal and stopped when I finished. I was playing Meg so it was the breathing she does while running.

    The Survivors eventually started goofing around with me near the 75% mark of the match. I sent one a message to explain the plethora of bugs I was experiencing and they helped me test to see how many sounds were broken. When the match ended and I got to confirm just how few sounds ANY of the Survivors were making without any sound related perks on all 4 of them; I was beyond fuming and immediately shut down my PS4. It was my first game after having just power-cycled my PS4 due to frame drops I experienced while trying to do the Killer Archive Challenge requiring Beast of Prey. I completed that challenge, power-cycled my PS4 and switched over to the Legion Based Challenge so my perks were: Discordance, Mad Grit, Iron Maiden, and Barbecue & Chili.

    I don't exactly remember at what time I "found" the bug, but for me and my friend(s) Dwight, when falling from any height, Makes no sound. He doesn't scream, he just lands completely silent.


    Also his hand animations break when picking up toolboxes and such, making Dwight unable to Flashlight save.

There are plenty of videos posted around on the forum showcasing these bugs are legitimate so I refuse to take this risk; I don't do video editing so I can't just obfuscate my ID either.

    The best part about this run in with the Sound Bugs was I was attempting to complete a Daily Ritual for Oni whose power bugged out on me as well in this match; It was already bad enough I couldn't hear the Survivors but losing out on my Power entirely was almost 100% defeating.

    I came across A TON of Blood Orbs and attempted to Absorb them. As the final 3 were pulling into my Oni my ability to Absorb bugged out and I was stuck at 99.999% to having my Power Meter full. I was hoping when I hit a healthy Survivor that it would fix itself but it did not; It played the animation that I was slurping up their blood from the hit but I stayed stuck at 99.999% with the Absorb command broken and unable to activate my Rage!


    *EDIT* The only sound related Perk in play that game was Iron Will and only 1 Survivor had it equipped. I am including Quick & Quiet in my sound related list by the way since as mentioned above: "2/4 made no Vaulting Sounds."

    Deathslinger on a map like Lery's where Red Rank Survivors are making absolutely no sound what-so-ever? I guess the Entity said, "Fun shall not be had in my realm!"

    I have another example and this time i made sure to get the end screen shot. PS4, around 8pm NJ, swf Yui (me) with Jeff against clown on mother's dwelling. My injured sounds were the only ones missing but only for the duration of this clip. Otherwise all my sounds were present. I lost injury sound after getting smoked and then it returned after being smoked again.

    another "no injury sound" example...all other sounds in the trial seemed fine. PS4, solo survivor Steve against Bubba on meat plant..after being hit with the basic attack, 2 times i lost the injured sounds. i regained them after healing myself and being picked up. 7/12/20 around 8:45am NJ

    • The map you were playing on: Various
    • A clip of the incident, if you have one: I was watching TrU3Ta1ent stream on Twitch and during his stream he was encountering the same sound bugs I do on PS4. He kept mentioning the bugs as he encountered them and really started pointing them out near the end of the stream.

    • Logs (apply to PC only) I put a request in his chat that he reply to this thread and share his clips + logs.


    At the time I was watching DbD on Twitch, TrU3Ta1ent was the top streamer with the most viewers. For hours on his stream he was constantly encountering sound bugs. He mentioned that today seemed especially bad for some reason but wasn't sure if it was because he was just noticing it more or it really was happening more.

    I just recently learned about the Fog Whisperers Program... Apparently most of the streamers I watch on Twitch are a part of that program and they also experience the multitude of Sound Bugs far more regularly with the greater investment into game time. I am hopeful they are reporting all the various Sound Bugs I hear them discuss on stream through the Fog Whisperers Program. Now I understand why TrU3Ta1ent didn't respond here on the forums since he has a more direct line with the developers I suppose.

    I've given up on reporting issues but wanted to add one last post to this thread since the Sound Bugs were driving me crazy. Now if you click the above link you'll see game play of just "vibing" where sound really doesn't matter. Who needs to worry about Sound Bugs when you just rock-out the entire game anyway?

    I was playing Pig and the David I was chasing made no sound from the moment I hit him and chased around, when I briefly left and found him again he was making noise, therefore he didn't have Iron Will.

    Hey there.

    Platform: PC

    What sound was silent: Meg, on the ground. She made no noise at all, except for the rustling of leaves when moving. My OBS wasn't running so I couldn't get a clip before she'd bleed out. The noises came back when she was picked up. initiating a mori and stopping mid-way didn't restore the sound.

    Map: Sanctum of Wrath. I was playing Freddy. This happened on the little staircase to the side of the big, main shrine, with a vault on it. She had just stepped on a blood trap, started the vaulting action and I hit her mid-animation.

    Time frame: 16/08/2020, a little bit before 15:00 UTC-3. I'd check the exact timing but the logs look like gibberish to me. I'll upload them anyway.

    Thanks for your time.

    Silent Sound: Sounds of injury on survivors. When using Off the Record, if I was performing an action at the time in which the 80 seconds were finished, my sounds of injury would be permanently muted until I changed health states. This would not occur if I was not performing an action like repairing a generator at the time of the perk deactivating. It was only when it ended mid way through an action.

    Switch:

    Sound is a bit bugged out.

    I noticed on my end at least the Generators' sound are very low.

    Terror Radius as well.

    I played on Gideon's map and the footsteps of all survivors including Myers ( Killer) was very loud.

    not sure if each map has a distinct sound bug or what. But yeah please adjust the sounds. Thank you very! Game looks lovely with the new upgrades! :)

    In my killer games, none of the survivors are making grunts of pain after being hit.

    In tandem with killer terror radius being super quiet the game is really weird right now.

    same here but on PS4. His sounds involving running, vaulting, injury and lockers are all missing. I have here 3 clips with endscreens as proof. I just don't know if the sounds are heard by the killer and other survivors. I only know that i am not hearing them. NJ, USA, around 2pm-3pm

    Randomly since the initial update that included The Blight. I cannot hear grunts of pain or footsteps of injured survivors (I check to make sure it wasn't just Iron Will) . It could be against anybody but I've noticed it on Meg, Nea, Feng, Jeff, Jake, Quentin, and Claudette. This happens to me every other game or so possibly 1/3.

    Any Map

    Happens 11:00pm-1:00am Pacific

    I'm getting used to see no Iron wills and the survivors making no sound, I hit a survivor, they scream and all of the sudden they're muted. No injured sound, no footsteps, no breathing, I literally have to guess where they are all the time.

    All maps, specially on Ormond.

    Last time it happened to me was right now, 9/28/2020, 19:30.

    I can't get my logs to you right now, but I'm a PC Steam player.

    I was playing Meg, since I just got a new cosmetic top for her. Threw on some perks (like Self-Care, Adrenaline, Spine Chill, and Resilience) and started playing... I noticed she wasn't making noises when she was hurt, almost like I was using Iron Will. Cool, but also an odd bug.

    (The bandage noises when I was self-healing still played, but while healing and while walking around injured, she never whimpered / cried.)

    (Time and date are as of posting; it's happened through all of the day, I think.)

    (EDIT: The loss of noises actually seems intermittent. Sometimes she makes noise (I just went against a Doctor), but before she was silent (one example was, I think, Clown).

    Survivor audio is too loud when a survivor is downed

    Survivor audio is too loud when a survivor is hooked

    Survivors don’t give audio queues when vaulting a window

    Survivors will sometimes not give audio when injured

    Feng Min Gives no audio when she is in dying state

    Head On will have moments where the perk doesn’t activate

    Giant particles of fog are intense making it hard to see

    Doctor has a normal terror radius

    Spirit has moments where there is no audio when she phases

    Some parts of Macmillan Estate are invisible. Found around Coal Tower and Ironworks.

    I checked and this is a problem through all other platforms. I know the information isn’t very specific, but I hope it helps.

    Could not hear survivors struggling, also bugged audio for breaking pallets and kicking gens. I've only played 2 games as killer so far but both games have had the same issues. Playing Blight and Legion

    Map was Family Residence (I think) Yamaoka Estate and Coal Tower.
