What Is the Audio Bug in Modern Warfare 2?

The audio bug seems to occur more on PlayStation systems, more often on PS4 than PS5. If you’re experiencing it, you’re probably struggling to hear explosions, enemy footsteps, killstreaks, and hitmarkers, which obviously spoils the gameplay experience.

The good news is that developer Infinity War is aware of the issue and has already Tweeted about their plans to investigate and fix it:

The bad news is that there’s no fix right now. It’s quite literally just a case of waiting for an update to solve the issue. We can’t really offer any direction other than to suggest you reboot the game and try and load back into a lobby to see if the issue has at least temporarily resolved itself.

What we can say is that the audio problem is definitely on the software side, given that Infinity War has actually acknowledged the fault. That means there’s probably not a great deal of point working through troubleshooting your own hardware in an attempt to find a fix. We’re seeing other guides on the internet recommend these generic fixes, but they’re highly unlikely to make any difference if there’s some sort of inherent issue with the game.

We’ll update this article as soon as we know more.
