Audio periodically cuts out in game

Issue Type (Required):

Audio

Issue Description (Required):

Hi. I’ve had consistent audio issues in Darktide for the last couple months. Periodically within the game (and not on the Mourningstar) sound will cut out entirely for Darktide - complete silence for a couple seconds. The game will run as normal and other sounds will also work as normal (like Discord chat with friends).

I’ve tried various sound settings and verifying local files. So far, nothing has solved this issue.

Audio device: Hifiman Blue Mini + Hifiman Deva headphones.

[PC] Do You Use Mods? (Optional):

No, I don’t use mods

Reproduction Rate (Required):

Constant (100%)

Platform (Required):

Steam (PC)

This is a known issue and is related to a commonly reported drop in performance, though I understand your issue is primarily sound-related.

For this, I recommend switching to the experimental build per the instructions here:

Keep us posted!

Can confirm this issue happens on the experimental build as well :disguised_face:
