Sound Effects are output to my rear speakers...
The music and ambient sounds are output from my front center, FL and FR speakers but attack sounds and footsteps are output from my RL and RR speakers. I assume this is not intentional?


P.s. great game btw!

Thanks for reporting this! Definitely a bug.

You are very welcome! Strange no one else reported this before me...maybe it is my great SoundBlaster Z! Is it possible that this is just my system, is anyone else getting this problem?

Just in case, here are my system specs:

CPU = Intel Core i7 3930k
MB = Asus P9X79
RAM = 16GB Corsair
GPU = EVGA Geforce 680 Classified
Sound Device = Sound Blaster Z

No but then again i use Afterglow headset and i configured them diffrently. Sorry that i cant help

I have the same issue. Sounds come from the rear speakers.

Creative X-Fi
Windows 8.1 x64

I can confirm this for my 5.1 speaker setup as well.

My attack sounds are not working at all I have no rear speakers :(

Are they EVER going to fix this...does not seem like a compicated problem to fix. I have never experienced this with any other game. It has been a problem since release too...

Same issue. Always have had it. Tried every audio configuration for my sound card always comes out the same. Rear if rear is present in configuration. None if rear isnt present. Can't figure out a solution.

Soundblaster Live! 24-Bit


In the newest update of the game, it appears I can get sound to play normally when I use 2/2.1 Speakers configuration in sound card settings. Hooray!!

Awesome, I will give this a try...see if it works for me too!

Did it work for you?

This BUG with reversed front/back channels is still not fixed for 5.1 audio speakers setting :/ Not nice...

Same here.

So it's over 4 years later now and this bug STILL persists? It's kinda annoying, every time I'm spotted by an enemy in the dark I can hear them grunting behind me, even though they're in front of me.
Em.. are you running Windows 10 CU with a realtek chip? The update broke proper audio drivers but new ones can be downloaded here[] that should solve surround sound issues
