Wuthering Waves no music fixes

First things first: the no music and sound bug in Wuthering Waves is entirely on the game's side and not your end, so don't tear your hair out trying to fix it for good. One can hope that developer Kuro Games is aware of the issue (as well as all the other ones like lag and stutter) and is working on a fix for the game's next patch.

The source of the bug stems from the game's transportation system, with the music or sound often cutting out entirely when players attempt to teleport using a Resonance Beacon or Nexus. Additionally, Alt-Tabbing to a different application or window on your computer also triggers the issue.

Nevertheless, there are a couple of tricks you can try out to fix the no music bug while we wait for a more permanent solution:

  1. Simply try logging out and logging back into the game.
  2. Try restarting the game entirely.
  3. You should ensure that you are collecting all rewards after defeating a world boss, as the bug also sometimes shows up when you don't collect your rewards and then teleport to another location after the fight is over.
  4. Just to be sure, try to disconnect and reconnect your audio device. As I said, it's quite unlikely that it's a problem on your end, but you never know.
  5. Avoid Alt-Tabbing in the first place.

If you still can't hear any dialogue or audio while in combat, you should try to lower the music volume to zero and see if you can hear these again. This is because the game's music may sometimes take over all the game's other audio.

To do this, open the game's Settings menu by clicking the gear icon in the bottom right corner of the Pause screen. Then, the first menu that should open is the game's Sound Settings. Here, simply hover over the slider for Music Volume and drag it to the left to lower the music volume.

All in all, don't worry too – you're not the only one experiencing a sudden loss in music and sound in Wuthering Waves. A fix is probably on its way already, and there are many, if not inconvenient workarounds for you to try.
