Does anyone else prefer the sounds in Halo 4 to the ones in Halo 5? While some sounds I kind of like that they changed (The Banshee) but the quality of the sounds is sort of horrible compared to Halo 4.
For starters the armour sounds like it’s made of plastic and makes a kind of clicking sound. You don’t sound like you even do damage with assassinations either. Listen to the Halo 4 kick assassination and the one now. You don’t even sound like you’re hurting them never mind that when you’re boot meets their back it barely makes a sound.
Another one would be that the Covenant weapons have devolved into a generic ‘pew’ e.g. the Carbine. Even worse is the Needler sound. One that I hate that they changed is the Mantis. It sounds totally pathetic compared to it’s Halo 4 version.
The machine guns really grind my gears too. The Mantis and Warthog guns used to sound meaty and powerful but now they sound soft.
Overall I just feel that the sound quality is totally inferior and many things are just generic and lazy.
