Description

I find the default cracks extremely "weak". They are only "snaps" (I think further away it could sound like this) instead of proper "cracks". Try SOWMod (Sound of War soundmod) and be shot upon. They sound very much like this:

When I played with SOWMod, the sound alone was scaring the shit out of me, enough to stay in cover.

I made some new bullet cracks, just have some problems with their cfgs. Hopyfully they'll make into the next build.

Louder bullet cracks and louder firing sounds for small arms would improve realism and experience.

May we get some donations? Seems our sounds developer is longer away than expected.

Any update on this item? I'd love to hear some better bullet cracks soon, the defaults lack intensity.

they're really not that loud, and you only hear there close to your head.
What your hearing in your vid is the gunshot and the balloon popping and over modulation of the mic.
