Please use this thread for discussion specific to the Release Candidate (RC) branch on Steam, when it's available in the weeks leading up to a release. The preferred method of reporting issues in that build is the Feedback Tracker. Thanks!
Issue with crackling audio and stuttering.
Issue comes and goes, but only seem to come when player is inside a vehicle or building. A wild guess is it's related to the sound shaders used in those cases, but I dunno.
Games audio settings are set to default.
8ch surround (down-mixed to 2ch in video).
Edit: Bonus video. Crackling indoors footsteps. Works fine outside. Possibly related to issue described previously in this post. Turn your volume up but beware of the gunshots at the end of the video.
