When you punch or hit a wall with a melee weapon it makes a loud sound that sounds like a loud snap.

Devs just have more important bugs/glitches/exploits to fix .. and this has pretty low priority (they could basically put a grenade explosion sound there and it still wouldnt attract Zeds).... well.. but it would attract players xD
But still the sound is nice and quiet .so its gonna be replaced with a realistic one as soon as other major bugs are dealt with i guess.
It's not a gun shot sound, its a bullet impact sound. At the moment that's what it plays for all melee weapons and firearms, But I'm sure they will add more sounds for specific weapons on various object surfaces for almost all weapons later on. At the moment I think its just a placeholder'ish thing, Which works...
No probs about the place holders. Just want to add they are not consistently being played when using axes/melee. For instance, I can hit a zed or door or wall in pretty much any concrete building and get the "shot", some of the red brick building gets the same, however most green wooden buildings don't seem to give me the "shot". Also it has never been played when out doors.
Knowing this, my friend scared the crap out of me while I was looking for snipers by axing the ground right next to me. After jumping out of my skin and giving him all hell for messing with me... we actually did get shot at, but I thought it was him again... then I was dead.
Different placeholder sounds would be AWESOME in the meantime :)
Scared the shit out of me when my friend was axing a zombie and he had hit the wooden fence next to him and it not only made a gunshot sound but, looked as if it had made a bullet hole in the fence as well.
just hit the fence accidentally a few times with my pickaxe while fighting a zombie and gunshot richochet sounds occur. highly reproducible AND Cobolt we KNOW its ALPHA, That's why we keep updates on it......
