Can't tell you how bothersome that is for those of us with tinnitus. For me it can cause flare ups when watching a movie or playing a game that has this if it's prolonged.

I have played games that actually have an option to turn it off and have been really grateful for it.
It's a good question, so thank you for asking.

Yes, we plan to have this effect toggleable.
Will it be possible to adjust the volume of the gun sounds, Amper? Having experienced hearing damage is kinda tiresome, a slider where separate gun sounds to other sfx would be similar to wearing Peltor Comtacs, where you can hear your surroundings but gun shots decibels are barely audible.

I don't believe this is planned over having an overall volume slider, but we'll keep it in mind.

Did the average infantryman have access to electronic earpro 20 years ago?

Ran into an article late last year talking about how the average Marine grunt will be "swapping earplugs for 21st century hearing protection" over the next 2 years.

I don't think so, most likely the tier one units would have likely had them, and even then, they themselves don't have access to stuff that hasn't been created yet.

I got out 2 years ago, and we were only just then switching over to the fancier stuff. Till then, it was plastic. And we usually dumped em for the foamies.
