Odd sound, particularly when firing MKb 42

I don't quite know how to describe it. It sounds as though it cracks the sound. It actually hurts my ears. Anyone else get this, or have a better description of it?

Yes, constantly; when firing and being shot at with it. The sound effect is 100% louder than any other weapon and it clips viciously, sounding like an ear-splitting grind; it almost sounds like white noise. It's like someone has taken a wav and ramped up all of the levels to, and beyond, the point of distortion. There is also a noticable drop in frame rate when the thing is farting away inside a building.

Yeah it gets overdone to the point of static.

It's the only weapon sound that does it too.

Hopefully it'll be looked over.

I don't have a problem with it. As in it doesn't happen to me. What sound channels setting are you guys using?

The Mkb? Does it sound as though you're ruining someone else's experience? Nah I'm just kidding. lol

You notice it more if you're around a couple guys shooting at the same time.

All default sound settings here, btw.

It's quite old bug.. I almost forgot about it existence because I mostly play clanwars where prototypes are not allowed. On public I mostly see more Mkbs than riflemans so I avoid it.

This will never be fixed, very old bug, TW denies it's existance.
Is this an exaggeration? Every time i mention it in a server every one agrees.
It sounds like the mkb is firing 2 sounds for each shot, causing it to clip and distort.
Sometimes it all builds up into one massive explosion that sounds like its gonna destroy your headphones, particularly if you are spectating and you switch views
