They are for those who play the game for the first time so they don’t have to match with pros as they join the game and quit (there are too many pros now)
and as you get better you will fight with bots less and less

You’ll have to reset all of your keybinds, you probably already know this though. All of my keybinds were reset and all that stuff. Just make sure you put your stuff back to how they were.

From in game description:
VISUALIZE SOUND EFFECTS
Turns the visual radial indicator for some sounds on/off. When on, you will see the visual radial indicator for some sounds, but in game sound will no longer pan or provide spatialization.
I was using it alot of time thinking it was giving me advantage with my playstyle with my own background music, but now it sounds like they nerfed it =(

GhostFZ
Guest
GhostFZ

i mean it’s for those who can’t hear soo idk how they gave you advantage.
i tried them for a week and it was more harder for me but that’s just me
they do seem different but idk if they are nerfed or not
They seem kinda similar to me (coming from someone who does not use that every day)so yeah

They should just get rid of the bots, no need for them. There’s enough players in the world to fill the games.

A problem with the game is that alot PC players get these random lag drops from 240 to 50 for a second and back up to 240 and that’s going on and on again. Epic Games had these issues fixed in the chapter 1 of the game but in chapter 2 it seems to be back again. Tfue,Ninja,Kiwiz,SypherPK and much more pros experience the same problem.

Anyone who is actually colorblind (specifically red-green) notice it’s harder to spot enimes?

Also enimes need to be a lot closer to hear their footsteps. 3d stereo sounds like a echo to me and can’t tell which direction is coming from.
