Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 2 is bringing some much-needed audio changes.

Infinity Ward and Raven Software released a comprehensive preview of all the improvements coming to the game for Multiplayer, DMZ, and Battle Royale in Season 2. The update is set to drop on Feb. 15.

Since Warzone 2's release, players have complained about inconsistent audio. It is essential to hear an approaching enemy squad in a Battle Royale, especially when you do not see them coming. In Warzone 2, sometimes the footstep audio is extremely loud, and then at other times, the audio is virtually silent.

Here's a breakdown of what to expect from the upcoming audio changes.

Based on the number of channels a PC is outputting, players can experience audio issues in the Battle Royale. The new update will include an option to force PC to stereo output, hopefully eliminating any audio discrepancies.

Raven Software and Infinity Ward found an issue affecting occlusion across the game. The filter blocks the full frequency of certain sounds and should only be applied to large objects. The investigation revealed small items, like a stapler or a wastebasket, also trigger the filter to turn on and therefore hinder the audio.

The developers have promised the issue will be addressed in the Season 2 update. With Warzone 2 player count dropping at a rapid rate, fixing the prevalent audio bugs could help bring some players back to the Battle Royale.
