On the whole, the audible range of guns seems to be a tad too low considering how quiet the game is on the whole. Even away from the coast, in a quiet part of land, the gunshots sound very underwhelming when someone else shoots nearby.
- Legacy ID
Go somewhere quiet and get a friend to shoot nearby.
DId some testing with the Mosin. Testing was conducted within 2 meters of my friend, fired ran 10 meters (Distance approx)then fired. Repeated this process until the report of the gun was silent. When report fell silence i paced off the distance wich came out to 59 player steps used with walking speed.
Also fired over friends head into wall at 100 meters and no sound.
"I have the oppesite problem with the M4 Silencer, with the Silencer 556 attached it won't reduce the sound noise."
In reality you need subsonic ammunition, otherwise only the explosion sound is silenced but the bullet still makes a supersonic crack and that is rather loud.
So maybe it is not implemented yet, or it is just a bug.
@Dean HALL and the whole DayZ-Devteam, moderators send this to them.
Contact Lord Jarhead of the ARMA III Community ,
he will give you the most realistic and impressive sound envoirment
you could possibly create in the RV engine.
Just watch these videos to get an impression :
"The biggest feature is the "Distance script" that allows the mod to address different sound effects at different distances
to the player. The scenario: If a shooter is 500 meters away, one extra tuned value sound for this distance will be
played. This gives the impression of being far away of that shooter.
There are also effects like the "First Person sounds" which giving the impression that the weapon is close to your face
by adding mechanical extra sound effects which is only played when the player is playing in the first-person
perspective. The same works for vehicles. When sitting as a passenger in an armed vehicle, you can hear the
mechanical sounds of the weaponry.
The latest addition to the J.S.R.S. Sound modification suite is the all-new "in-room script" which mixes an extra loud
echo over the weapon effects when the player is inside a building and is firing his weapon. The effect results in the
impression that you really are inside a building."
