“Why do you turn down your volume?” People ask me. “Doesn’t it put you at a disadvantage?” Yes, but jumping like this any time there’s a shot isn’t any better.

Jesus, did you snap your wrist pulling off that maneuver?

Took a shot at God.

Did you get him at least?

This clip of me visibly getting jumpscared still cracks me and my friends up to this day.

ID: hfs7aea

Yeah that's a good one, you were so desperate to find whoever shot your ass

ID: hfsa83i

Nice trigger work. I can never seem to hold on target when rattling off shots like that in semi-auto.

ID: hfse1po

I can't stop laughing, awesome clip

ID: hfsih4f

and you still got his ass, impressive!

ID: hfsizbt

I zoned out after the first 3 seconds and got jumpscared

Bruh I do this shit all the time. Probably why I struggle in pvp so much lmao

This game gives me ptsd. I love it

How did you get a video of me in raid!?

7 : Anonymous2021/10/07 22:52 ID: hfscup6

Jumping when there's a shot? Your volume must not be high enough if you aren't jumping anytime your gear rustles when you look over a tiny bit

I've wondered sometimes if I'd be better off not wearing headsets. I'd die more often, but I'd also spend a lot less time jumping at innocent noises.

ID: hfs8l06

i like to be sneaky to headsets help me hear those distant footsteps a few seconds sooner but if you are moving a lot or with a team they dont help as much.

ID: hfs8ss7

I solo about 95% of the time, so I pretty much always wear one.

ID: hfs9kxa

Im just running altyns now

I love surprising people only to have them look at the stars before killing them. Makes me lol everytime

10 : Anonymous2021/10/07 22:02 ID: hfs6kdz

Lol, this is me 100%. Then I get pissed and talk shit about how loud it was.

11 : Anonymous2021/10/07 22:51 ID: hfscrz2

The amount of times I've screamed after being shot in the head is ridiculous

12 : Anonymous2021/10/07 22:52 ID: hfscxcb

It’s funny, because I don’t jump at horror games or jumpscares. Yet only gunshots in this game scares me to death.

Use SoundLock.

ID: hfseop1

Any compressor for audio so you don’t blow your eardrums.

14 : Anonymous2021/10/07 23:30 ID: hfshl7h

That's why I use an audio compressor. The goal is less to equalize the audio, but just to cut out some of the peaks. I don't use an aggressive compressor like you would for for a microphone, just a little bit.

Ever since I went from using onboard audio to the GoXLR, the range of volume drastically increased (as well as quality). As a result, I needed to use a compressor if I didn't want my ears to ring.

Keyboard warriors will tell you that peaks of gunshots is fine. Yeah, maybe IRL if you only shoot a few shots. But I don't think it applies to fully automatic fire for hours on end.

Your mouse sensitivity is way too high

Nah I just jumped really fuckin hard.

i hate playing in a group or on discord calls because i yelp sometimes when i get caught off guard like this lol.

I do this more often than I’d like to admit

21 : Anonymous2021/10/07 22:48 ID: hfscbzo

TY OP, I had a good chuckle at this... One of the true examples of how good this game is that an unexpected shot makes me wig out just like this...

22 : Anonymous2021/10/07 22:51 ID: hfscs2q

I'm in this video and I don't like it.

23 : Anonymous2021/10/07 23:06 ID: hfsen1k

I had to turn my volume down too. The thought of getting shot at was giving me anxiety in the same way playing a scary horror game does.. if not worse!

24 : Anonymous2021/10/07 23:10 ID: hfsf70j

Don't even worry, I'm exactly the same. Even worse, maybe. I've panic popped a shot when shots go off that aren't even at me. So much for stealth.

25 : Anonymous2021/10/07 23:15 ID: hfsfq5f

Download and use SoundLock - you can limit the upper range of sounds in Tarkov (or just on your system in general) so that gunshots & explosions won't blow your hearing but footsteps are just as bad as ever.

26 : Anonymous2021/10/07 23:30 ID: hfshjmo

There's an easy fix to this

27 : Anonymous2021/10/07 23:37 ID: hfsie1b

Wel, this is a fucking horror game. Right?

Check out this post to help with keeping your audio high, but not destroying your ears! I have been using it for months now and it has turned my Tarkov experience so much better. My ears don't bleed, and I jump scare less, while being able to hear quiet noises better!

Listen I gasp loudly when I get shot at, doesnt matter if i've played since there were 2 armors in the game I get spooked the same

30 : Anonymous2021/10/07 23:44 ID: hfsjb7o

It’d be fine but the noise of a bullet hitting you in the head is literally the stuff of nightmares.

Just BONK out of nowhere

31 : Anonymous2021/10/07 22:41 ID: hfsbja0

Looks like your sensitivity is way too high.

ID: hfsbufu

Nah I just jump easy. I like to run a nice middle of the road sensitivity. Something where I can still flick around if need be, but I can also be precise enough.
