So far we have heard a few new weapons from halo 4, so far I only have a few complaints. The DMR, AR, Scattershot, BR, LR, and carbine sound awesome. I don’t like the sound of the new needler, storm rifle, and the magnum. They all sound weak and pathetic when compared to the other weapon sounds revealed. The storm rifle and needler sound like they are shooting compressed air not plasma or explosive needles and the magnum just sounds plain weak when you listen to the reach and CEA sound profiles. I hope that they change these before launch and make them sound cool.
im pretty sure the magnum is in this. you cant hear it, because it soumds terrible, and it maoes a slosh noise so dont expect a bang bang. im sorry about the commentary, but its 1 in 100 trying to find one without haha. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BZ3gkyDgmhY
That’s only half the story, the other half is the gunpowder in the shell exploding forcing the round out of the barrel. IMO the BR sounds horrible. NO bass at all and the 3 round burst sounds very muddled. I think they should go listen to the sound of the BR from 2 and 3. The sound is fuller and more distinct, makes the BR sound like somethibg more than an airsoft gun.
I think the gun sounds are very accurate. Having had the chance to fire a real rifle (don’t ask) I think the guns at close range (i.e. when you’re firing it) have a more of a “ting” sound. However, I do agree, when you’re friend is shooting, a louder ‘bang’ needs to be heard. The magnum sounds fine. It sounds like a pot of gunpowder is going off each time one pulls the trigger. It makes the bullets sound actually very powerful.
