Battlefield 4 Multiplayer Bug: Silencer Mutes Entire Server

Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty: Ghosts are apparently in a competition to see which is the most broken game. On one hand, Ghosts has been hacked before release. On the other, a bug in BF4 causes the actions of a single player to mute the in-game sound of every other player in a server.

The bug, dubbed the infamous “shellshock sound glitch” by the community, is caused by putting a suppressor on a specific gun, the QBU88, and firing a shot. After the first bullet fires, the players’ sound is cut off server-wide. This glitch even persists through rounds — the only way for a player to get his sound back is to leave the server and rejoin a game.

Check out this video to see the glitch in play:

“The QBU is best gun. It’s so good it breaks game.”

Trolling for science. Gotta love it.

Now, admit it — will you test this out yourself?

Well without being able to hear vehicles, gun shots and explosions it should make you a hell of a lot more cautious. . . .
