Semi-realistic Weapon Pack - A Sound Mod for Left 4 Dead.

Semi-realism Weapon Pack

I was pretty sick of hearing the Counter Strike sounds in L4D, so I set about making a semi-realistic set of sounds for L4D. I took real recordings of an M16, M14 and 1911 for those weapons respectively, and used distant sounds from those weapons for the distant sounds they make. The M14 I mixed with a sound made by Anders. The shotguns are based on sounds made by Anders and xLWH. The pistol reload sounds are based on xLWH's USP sounds.

    Thanks for the comments guys :) I'm revising the soundpack at the moment, using some Spas12 sounds for the shotguns, and a new M14 sound (sadly the reverb cannot be as long as I would like :( @ Yams, no there aren't any sounds from a game called "Madness", I used some real world gunshots to make the pack (all except for the shotgun sounds, as stated above).

    Posted by Yams These I'm pretty sure, aren't your sounds... You took them from a flash game called Madness... whatever.
    If that was a serious comment, no, none of them seem to come from madness.

    Clarity: Most of the sounds are great. I really like the pistol, rifle, hunting rifle, and the UZI fire sounds. However, the hunting rifle and the pistol seem a little muffled in-game compared to the little sample player thing. I'm not a big fan of the shotgun(s) fire sounds. To me, it doesn't sound like a shotgun at all. Immersivity: The sounds I used from your pack really added to the L4D experience. The only thing I could really say here is that both shotgun fire sounds don't add in to the experience. But that's just my opinion, most likely there's folks who like it. Realism: Those real recordings of the M16, M14, and 1911 you used are amazing. In-game, the sounds have just enough beefy-ness in em to sound great. Again, the only thing I can think of to bring this down are the shotgun fire sounds. Overall, a really great pack. Nice, man.
    Shit just got real...
