There is a distinct sound at the beginning when you are firing with your powered blastered, boostered as you call them. It's kind of hollow and airy, but it's there, but only for the first shot.

Further, Troopers!

Grav Round now has this bizarre glass gear wind up sound when you are charging it to fire. MAKE IT GO AWAY. ;_;

I have a ticket in on the space mission sounds. On my rig, you don't have to hold down the firing button for very long before the incoming ship sounds, turret and enemy vessel explosions, and ship sounds all get drowned out. Releasing the firing key allows the sounds to return. But then holding down the firing button for any length of time, even a couple of seconds, gets you back to a point where all other sounds are drowned out.

That's in addition to the smuggler sound changes (charged shot is awful), as is the Trooper Grav Round sound effect change, the anemic sound effect of the BH Death From Above, and the whisper quiet BH Tracer Round.

I also confirm having noticed this.

Gunslinger here. As reported by others most of my shots have changed. I think Trickshot is the only one that has the same sound. They all sound pretty much like flurry of bolts. This is detrimental to good dps as I use the sound queues to gauge what I am doing.

I agree with this. Is there any information on whether this was an intentional change or if it was accidental?

Is there an ETA on when this will be fixed?
