Im sure this has been noted but why is there a not a fix today for the Pistols(GS) sounds?

I also saw a dev commented on a post about this asking to list what sounds were wrong, Please Dev's log on to a lvl50 GS and shoot your pistol and tell me it feels like a starwars pistol! To me it feels like im shooting pea shooter or a very bad airgun.
I want epic starwarsy blaster fire please! or at least give us back the old sounds before 1.4
Thanks.

Because it's not a critical bug, because blah-blah-blah. Also, SOON (tm)!

Or just because Bio dont care...

Newsflash: Different guns make different sounds. I seem to remember that "Flashy" has a very classic Star Wars sound. Other guns can sound "heavier" or "lighter". Don't like the sound of your gun? Switch to a different one.

The same thing holds for lightsabers. On my first Juggernaut, I spent some time around Lvl 40 looking for a saber shell that made a nice whomm sound on ignition, after realizing that the one I currently using made for of a snick sound.

Some attack sounds changed (vastly changed in some cases) with 1.4 (irresepective of which weapon you wield), I dunno if this was intentional or a bug however, but I think this is what the OP is refering too.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

Not true.
I have orange guns since level 10 and never change them.
Though sound after 1.4 is changed.
Missandei Shadow ...yet shadows can kill. And oft-times a very small man can cast a very large shadow.

We are still looking into some of the reported issues with specific sounds - we definitely haven't forgotten. As soon as I have some new info for you, I'll let you know right away. Thanks for your patience; we know that sound is a big part of your character and combat!

You are correct. Flashy sounds like a tie fighter shooting, actually, for the regular auto attack. But for the strong attack (forget the name, just the regular shooting one but it takes energy), the sound was changed from a mighty BLAM to some wimpy plink sound, and that's no matter what gun you equip.

Thanks Allison, some info on this and an acknowledged problem would really help me feel better. Its almost not fun to play my slinger now because the sounds are so bad. We await your reply with anxious ears.
