Hey everyone,

On the run up to Early Access launch, we’ve been keen to communicate that pretty much everything you see in the game is a work in progress, including what you hear!

The closed beta gave us a fantastic opportunity to get feedback on what our crowdfunder players thought of weapon audio in Hell Let Loose, and we heard you loud and clear!

So, in this week’s Developer Briefing we’re going to be making some noise…

Updated Weapon Audio

Below we’re going to share with you some first-person perspective (FPP) audio update teases for two iconic weapons in Hell Let Loose, the MG42 and the M1 Garand. Audio is still a work in progress, so please keep that in mind!

This is part of a wider update the team are working on in relation to audio across the board in the game. What we’re showing below is just the first step on our journey to making the audio in Hell Let Loose as immersive and powerful it can be.

With Early Access, we have three core objectives around audio -
  • 1. An immersive first person and third person audio experience (firing, reloading etc).

  • 2. Sound behaves in a consistent and accurate way allowing for players to gauge distance and direction of shots (With a focus on positioning).

  • 3. Each individual weapon is identifiable at distance based upon their audio characteristics (Calibre, rate of fire etc).
Now, let’s give these weapons a listen…


When updating the MG42’s audio following the closed beta, the team’s primary focus was striking a careful balance between audio captured from a firing range and the cinematic feel that gamers have come to expect from their weapons.

Below you can view a short clip that shows the updated MG42 in action:

M1 Garand

Much like the MG42, the team adopted an update approach with the M1 Garand that balanced firing range audio with a cinematic feel.

You can hear the M1 Garand in its updated glory with the clip below:

The sound of progress

As we continue to update and polish various aspects of Hell Let Loose, including audio, we’ll be sharing them with you, our community.

These changes are made possible due to the feedback we receive from you, so thank you!
