I agree that the gunslinger's sounds have been nerfed, I remember quick shot used to have a nice "Pop-Pop" that made it sound like you we're really hitting something hard.

the sound effects for many abilities were changed including space combat's, trooper's and of course gunslinger.

I think the reason was to try to reduce stuttering and/or lag, to try to improve game performance. it reminds me of the old days when you set how many channels you would use for sound, and if the system was over taxed some sound effects would be 'dropped' .

I can't prove any of this and could easily be wrong about why it is... but it is obvious that many sound effect changes have been made and not for the better imho.
