    Has anyone noticed that when the new patch came out this week that it changed the engineers guitar song "More Gun" from a guitar solo at the beginning to a guitar harmonica duet with train sounds. Does anyone know why that happened?

    Not sure why it happened, but I can tell you it sounds terrible.

    they could've at least kept the old one, it is a different style and I do like the original better

    I like how it goes after the harmonica ends. It's absurdly long, seems more designed for listening out of game.

    I'd like them both if they got rid of the harmonica or at least make it queter

    I know what you're talking about, it sounds like muffled heavy, but I think it's from the bass in the background. listen closely as the 'talking' matches the bass parts

    I've said this to death, but I'm pretty sure it was changed to avoid a lawsuit from Wilco.

    Same reason the Meet the Sniper song never came out, it's obviously copied from the Magnum Force theme.

    That said, the new version is awful because the harmonica sounds like a dying cat.
