The auditory aspect of World of Tanks will receive some nice tweaks in the upcoming update.

Love it... well, maybe except the sound of the no more shells in the "no more shells" sound. It's kinda annoying but I'll take it over nothing.

Keep it up WG.

Nice work, keep it up.:great:  Sounds for more tanks need to be changed too. Gun of T-29 sound like catapult at the moment, and cromwell, T-25 etc. gun sound like shaking coins in metal can.

Guns still sound terrible when firing from sniper view, which is the view you use 80% of the time.

 

When i fire a tank gun i want it to sound like a giant [edited]cannon, not a PEZ dispenser.

Gun sounds from several patches back were good enough and as a believer in if it aint broke dont fix it some of the changes have been less than wonderful.

I do remember when we had to get sound mods to get realistic gun and engine sounds so when wargaming first started to "improve" the sounds I was pleased.

 

On the whole the changes have been great but I still maintain that a tank gun of any size should never sound like a rifle or some other small caliber weapon.

The gun sound when in sniper mode is truly awful except for those from open topped tanks where it is pretty much the same as the third person gun sound.

I suppose its realistic that a crew member wearing a headset sitting inside the turret would hear a much more muted gun sound.

WOT isnt a realistic game I would much prefer a beefy sounding boom when I fire the guns.

Thank you for the new sounds, specially the caliber sounds.

 

At the begining of my playing I had put mod sounds because the canon sounds were awful, but now are my fauvorite above the addons, but please, take into consideration to also change the sounds from sniper mode.

 

THanks and keep the good work :)

i like 90% of the sounds but if your gonna give the lowe a gun sound like that give it some more damage per shot i mean come on that sounds so meaty and sounds like itd rip a hole in anything it hit but the tank itself does i think the joined 4th lowest damage per shot among tier 8 hts BUT also has the worst dpm at the tier as far as im aware. i mean come on either buff the damage or buff the reload for that tank.

 

i do like most of the sounds but that just brought up the prooblem with the lowe again.

One might think this is all you can do now, new sounds, yet its been almost two years and female crew still doesn't speak as they should.

Because that's what it actually sounds like inside a tank. Almost all of the sound exits the gun barrel, not the breech. Only some resonance goes out of the breech. What you hear inside is mix of the gun itself resonating, and distorted sound coming from the outside, and all of that with hearing protection the crew is using, because interior of a tank is noisy AF.

 

Problem of an accurate depiction of gun sounds (of any kind) is not a new one. Hollywood resorts to massive bass to convey loudness but that is not really accurate. Gun sounds, especially the ones that are very near are just very, very sharp, loud sounds, not a rumble full of bass. You get deeper tones over large distances where higher frequencies get filtered out, and echo from the environment causes sound to last longer.

 

Have you ever listened to lightning strikes? The ones nearby are really loud and short, and sound more like a whip, whereas the ones in the distance produce a deep rumble that lasts for awhile.
