Not sure if right forum section, but have noticed today that whenever I got shot at, the sounds are extremely loud to the point where it hurts my ears. My master volume is only at 30, all other sounds in the game are completely fine, and I don't run any mods. I've tried turning down "vehicles" and "effects" in  the volume options to no avail.

If my memory isn't too fuzzy, there was a micro-patch yesterday but if that was the cause then it shouldn't be an issue limited only to me so is anyone else getting this?

Just a bit weird that I effectively get jump-scared because a sodding stock T44 hits me for piss-all damage and yet my ears get shafted :P

I have the opposite problem: nearly a third of hits don't make any sound at all.

No. I suspect most have an issue that they don't make a sound at all. And the large sound was and is a nice indication that you got slapped hard and it's time to fall back. Even with headphones.

I too have both problems. In sniper view and when I get hit the sound is soo damn loud, on the other hand not all damage hits makes sound :sceptic:

I play on PC with headphones.

Played today and didn't have any sound issues so I'm gonna assume it was a one-off PC derp that was causing it rather than an issue in game :mellow:

Try night mode in the sound settings to reduce sharp sounds.

Whenever I am in sniper mode and get hit, it makes a loud sound. I also have the master volume below 30%, have the vehicle volume and effect volume at 10% or so. I listen to music while playing WoT so I can't hear anything what is going on in the game, but from time to time I suddenly hear this loud and annoying hit sound.

I guess Wargaming is a low budget game developer, who just started developing video games last year, so they don't have the money or experience to fix their *edited*.

Jep, I don't "care" if there is no hit sound, but a 200% boost hit sound when in sniper mode ... f that

Same issue, night mode seems to be helping slightly.
