When you are locking on to a target with a Javelin or Manpad, the beeping sound is absurdly loud. It hurts my ears and drives the pets out of the room, and I use a really loud soundmod with the volume turned up, so I'm used to it.

This beeping should be about half as loud as it is. If it carried like normal sounds, it would be audible from hundreds of meters away. I'm sure that it is twice the volume of the AK74 firing in the stock game, and IRL that weapon gives people hearing damage like no other. I'm deadly serious. My bloody Stinger is louder than 125mm tank guns going off.

Not sure if we shall call this a feature request or keep it as a bug. At any rate, it's very loud.

Well I think the Javelin is worse than Manpads, actually. So we could call it a bug that the volume levels vary like that

Hehe, highly agree on this. Same goes for the "incomingchallenge" sound as well - I'm removing it from missions due to being too loud.
