I don't see soundwhoring being that big of an issue in this game.
Awareness is useless unless you are playing S&D.
Dead Silence will pick up footsteps, but at least it doesn't hold your hand like SRP.
Sure it's nice to prevent your character from yelling out random things, but overall IMO DS is not the best tier 3 perk. (or even the 2nd best)
Go play MW3 if you really want to get into soundwhoring.

I prefer to listen to music and work on my gunskill vs sitting around listening to footsteps so i can surprise shoot someone.
I dont know why some people play the way they do.. if you are moving working on map awareness and aim, you can feel yourself improving and getting better. Which is just alot more fun than trying for cheap kills.
Because apparently buying advantages over your competition is fun.
Most of the community cannot sound***** because they don't own equipment good enough to do so.
I can't hear people running halfway across the map or anything, but if someone is close to me, I can hear them tromping around...not for sure, though. Half the time I fail and don't hear them at all.
Don't know how it was in other cods too much cause I have never played them. I use 15 dollar sony headphones --- My 1stnuclear http://youtu.be/PJzX2zWbWk0 gt: f41lurizer Get a Q-Troller with custom trigger stops and hair triggers today! vid: http://youtu.be/kBsyFVFXxDg
Speaking for myself, I have a basic TB headset (hate the thing, it barely fits my head, but my first choice had to be returned because it didn't fit my controller's jack), and I've never been able to sound***** anybody.
In Zombies, it acts as a decent safeguard, but that's mostly because of how loud they are. --- http://www.lostlabyrinth.com - Free, addicting rogue-based game Xuande
