WoD Beta: Ranged Weapons Sounds

Prophet Velen isn’t the only that’s “new and improved” in Warlords of Draenor.

Blizzard updated the weapon sounds for guns, crossbows and bows. I think they’re a major improvement over what exists now.

Here’s a video I put together showing all three weapon types in action.

WoD Ranged Weapon Sounds


  1. I’d like to hear a thud when the arrow/bullet/bolt hits the target. I like the sounds though.

    However, as an IRL archer, I feel like I consistently need to keep telling blizzard that hunting bows are almost silent. If it’s making noise, you’re doing it wrong… 😛

    1. I never thought about that before, but then again everything I know about archery comes from Green Arrow comics.

      What you say makes perfect sense.

  2. I’ve been using the add-on that makes guns sound like silencer-equipped guns for so long that I forget what the default sound is–but I remember it being as annoying as the crash of changing aspects/stances/whatever. The gun report in your vid is not bad, and the crossbow sounds OK, but the bow needs some arrow swish (even if it’s not terribly real world).
