Same sounds = less memory required.
There's your answer.

Oh really now. They have thousands and thousands of unique audio strings to cover all the 8 class stories, including one time individual files for all the companions, NPC:s, and conversation choices and you believed they changed 1 single file to save memory?

This is either a **** up in the code (audio strings) or a terrible design choice. Please revert.

Yeah.. this needs to be fixed. 1.4 may have fixed a few bugs but just left a ton of newer ones. It's just poor business practice to release a patch this early with this many issues.
"The intended audience for players whom BioWare expected to play Smugglers are all fans of Harrison Ford. Why else would they have put so many references to him in the Smuggler Progression Trailer?"

Quick shots now sounds like a hoarse pew pew than a really ****** BLAM BLAM as it was before the patch!

Hey all, don't forget to /bug report this when you guys are in-game.

I know for a fact that the following Smuggler abilities have had their sound files altered or bugged:

  • Charged Burst
  • Emergency Medpac

I don't have a Gunslinger, but I've heard that many of their shots are also affected. Make sure you guys are listing them in your posts by the exact skill name, as well as doing a /bug report in-game to ensure this gets addressed.

100% agreed. Charged Burst sounds awful now, as does the sound for applying Lucky Shots. Before there was a crisp snap to it, but now it's a muffled whimper.

Give us our bang back.
