Change probe sound

I couldn't give a better sound off the top of my head, but the current sound every time I am in a game with new players their first instinct is "Someone is shooting a gun." The sound design along with plasma turrets and etc. being in the game makes it difficult for people first joining to understand right away that's a probe being shot, not a gun. While I did acclimate myself to it when a veteran player reassured me my first time, I think this is going to be difficult for players if 5 people just bought the game and just jump in, for instance.

That's a very fair point! I believe someone else also suggested changing the visual to reduce the chance it could be seen as a threat. It's on our list but it's not a very high priory, perhaps it should be higher though.

Thanks for the feedback!
