View Full Version : Pistol sound bug?

When equipped witht he long slide and no silencer, the gun still sounds silenced. Anyone else getting that?
What's your sound card? Is it by any chance onboard RealTek?

Are you sure you dont still have low velocity rounds!!

Yep that was it. That's still a bug IMO. Low velocity ammo wont silence a gun like that.

how is that a bug???? your givin an option to use bullets that have a low velocity which does reduce sound...

I take it you don't know much about guns. So called "low velocity" ammo only reduces the sound by using a less gunpowder so the bullet is sub-sonic. The .45 cal. round is already subsonic, so low(er) velocity ammo would reduce the recoil, but it wouldn't reduce the sound that much.
Sub-sonic rounds are usually used with a silencer to reduce both the sonic "crack" and the "boom" of the exploding gunpowder. If you fired a supersonic round out of a rifle with a silencer, you would still hear a the "crack" as the bullet breaks the sound barrier.
