Even without amplify you can still soundwhore and hear enemy footsteps even when they have dead silence, what is this crap? Is there no such thing as walking/running lightly? Is it essential to run dead silence 24/7 because even without amplify the enemy knows your position? Not to mention with amplify the enemy is given 100% map awareness should they have their sound high enough.
And yes, I'm sure there are other threads on this topic, but the issue has yet to be addressed and fixed.
