Does Dead silence block out awareness users?

I think they cancel each other out, right?

I don't know, I never got into the whole soundwhoring business.

Dead Silence= can hear people who don't have dead silence on. Awareness= can hear everyone.

IIRC, Dead Silence also cancels player grunts and callouts ("planting claymore!") and noise made running through bushes and weeds, in addition to footsteps. Awareness against Dead Silence only restores some of the footstep volume. It does NOT effect the Dead Silence benefits of player grunts and callouts or noise made running through bushes and weeds.

Also, maps are said to have more background noise this time around to make footstep volume less important (like the train in WMD in Black Ops). I'll see if I can find the article that said all of this.

People are strange, when you're a stranger,
Faces look ugly, when you're alone

People saying it's exactly the same as SitRep need to stop being so pessimistic and not jump to conclusions.

According to this, Vonderhaar said in a podcast that Awareness users can't hear Dead Silence footsteps but can still hear other sounds. Also they are still tweaking the game and I'm pretty sure they are aware of people crying about SitRep, the right decision will be made.
