I was just playing the trial when this really loud sniper rifle burst cut through my ear like literal bullet.. i now know what it feels like to hear a bullet pass by my head!!
It is the dreaded sound bug.
I saw von ivan's stream and he was cursing at it a few times too!!
I searched on the internet for this and this could save you possible hearing damage. What it is called is a limiter... Basically if the audio output ever exceeds the maximum volume on the cumulative volume of the windows output, it will lower the volume to safer volume..
if you guys want an alternative, try doing a search for "output limiter windows" or replace with OS you are using
