Yeah, most of the time those folks at CCP seem to be right on the ball.
I haven't gotten to try Uprising 1.2 yet, but have you noticed some of the following similarly cool touches in Dust?
I love the new headshot sound effect! It's so satisfying! It made me jump the first time I heard it!
I heard that 5 times this weekend with my random shotgun blasts....now I know how I get OHKilled by it all the time .
See that? Now you've both got me curious, cuz I haven't heard the sound yet and won't for another week....
I know when I see a red dot wearing a Heavy Sentinel suit (a Fatty?) , and we draw down on each other simultaneously and hose out our clips without flinching, without trying to dodge his fire (....you know what I mean, when you're determined to stand there and die with your finger on the trigger), ....when my militia sub-mg pop gun miraculously KILLS THE FATTY (...) there's this low-base sound over the speakers, as if a ton of hot air just hissed out of the guy's heavy dropsuit or something.
NO, I'm not making a joke! I've heard it before five or six times, and it was always after a miracle shoot-out with a heavy dropsuit player. It's the kinda sound you get in other games when you've just a triple health trophy, or just activated "rage-mode" or something.
Is this sound supposed to mean something??
