Raven Software Lead designer, Amos Hodge, has just tweeted out revealing that the sounds of the Barrett, Desert Eagle, RPD, and M40A3 in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered have been updated to better match their original sounds.

Shortly after Call of Duty XP, the community noticed that a lot of the sounds for their favorite weapons have changed. Several YouTube comparison videos sprung up and request began pouring in to change them back to their original sounds, and it seems like Raven heard our requests.

Previously, Hodge also announced that the kill feed icon for headshots and melee weapons have been updated to match the original game as well.

    Glad to hear it!

  • Drank Bleach

    Nice, should have kept everything that was in the orginal cod4 in the first place. Glad they’re listening to fan feedback.

  • Glad to see Raven is listening to the fans feedback

    • jordanxbrookes

      Raven listen better than the other devs lol.

      • It’s funny how that works honestly how Raven isn’t even a lead developer and they listen more than Treyarch, IW, or SHGames lol

        • CoDforever

          I dont know how you could say that about Treyarch when they have fixed almost every major issue with Black ops 3 since launch.

          Remember when the Vesper was OP? Or the map voting glitch? Or you cant see combat records? Or your character stops running when he gets hit by zombies? Or when we had no contracts? Or the G slide?

          • And it took them how many months to fix them issues? The map voting glitch wasnt fixed UNTIL FEBRUARY and the other little things you mentioned should have been fixed before launch and never should have been a problem. Treyarch rebalancing their guns, they are always inconsistent there.

            And I think you missed my point (then again you always do, so I’m not shocked) I’m not denying that Treyarch or any other developer listens because eventually they do, but compare to Raven? Raven is absolutely killing all three of time in how fast they listen and for how responsive they are how they are open for feedback I applaud them. Treyarch still my favorite developer tho

          • CoDforever

            Do you remember when:

            – Vesper was OP?
            – Combine 24/7?
            – No contracts or daily challenges?
            – No combat records?
            – Dark matter camo looked ugly?
            – No lobby leaderboards?
            – Shitty unnoticeable kill counters?
            – Zombies didnt have 1000 levels like MP did?
            – Catwalk glitch on The Giant?
            – You stopped running if you got hit by zombies?
            – Hardwired didnt counter Sixth Sense?
            – No special contracts/weapon bribe?
            – CoDcaster looked like trash?
            – Rejack and Black hat was OP in the beta?
            – The G Slide was game breaking?
            – No groups/clan feature?
            – Launchers were 100x more OP than now?
            – When picking up dropped weapons or the Uplink Satellite Drone would cause the player’s camera to jitter?
            – Arena ruleset sucked?
            – Arena didnt have probation?
            – Arena didnt have calling cards?
            – Ante up was 75 points, not 150?
            – Gorgon was OP?
            – Argus was OP?
            – Dead ops 2 wasnt playable online?
            – Only two Liquid divinium per game for zombies?
            – No Ricochet damage for Care Package owners in Hardcore Modes?
            – No ready up feature in zombies?
            – RAPS and power cores were too hard to get?
            – AI scorestreaks affected team kill kick penalties?
            – You couldnt trade duplicates for cryptokeys?

            And so much more. To say treyarch hasnt been listening to fan feedback all that much compared to Raven which just changed a couple of sounds they shouldnt have altered in the first place, is just baffling.

          • Once again retard, I never said Treyarch never listens to feedback at all. Did you even read my comment or are you just trying to find an excuse to be a delusional moron? Like everything you listed took the upon weeks and months to be fixed and on top of that, they are glitch which by the way, shouldn’t be in the final game to begin with.

  • Slothigans

    Updated to closely match the original…….um why not just USE the original sound? Smh.

    • Kakka Carrot Cake

      You whiny assholes just can’t be satisfied, huh?

      • BroomyGraphics

        Never a way to satisfy them.

      • Brian

        They have a point. There was no need to change the sounds. They were just fine in the original.

        • NFLD

          the engines are different so that means the sound files most likely are too and probably weren’t compatible or didn’t sound right.

          • Brian

            The engines aren’t different.

          • BradyAlucard

            Sure they are.

          • Chris🌊

            Yes they are… Raven is using the same engine as Advanced Warfare so the can’t use the same sounds as the originals due to the fact that it was on an old engine. Having said this, AWs engine using different kinds of sounds to wear it changes depending on where you are. (Inside a building, outside, etc.) Hope this clears up things for people wondering why they wont just use the original sounds.

          • Brian

            Advanced Warfare used the IW engine. They didn’t say which version but it’s still the same old IW Engine.

            What is with you lot and thinking the CoD series uses a new engine? All Infinity Ward CoD games use the IW engine. The Black ops series started off by using IW Engine 3.0 then they change the naming later for BO2.

        • There could be tons of points towards why they did, it literally doesn’t impact gameplay at all, this whining is ridiculous.

        • aaa187

          the original sound like shit, all of COD4 original sounds like shit.
          Have you played it recently? I play every few times a week and it is the
          worst sound COD out of all.

          • awlagfare

            whahahahhahahahahahaha

      • Slothigans

        Satisfied or not, I’m just wondering why they would even change it remotely.

      • Sexy Mcgee

        Having played the original when it launched I have to say, I actually liked the newer bassier punchier sounds more than the tinny scratchy sounds of the original. Oh, well. Another thing ruined by whiny little bitches.

    • CoconutDrunk

      Because the original sound doesn’t fit in this newer engine.
      In the recent CoDs they are using different sound engines.
      I’m not really into technical stuff but weapons will sound different in multiple areas, like outside or indoor.

      • Slothigans

        Don’t really know about this stuff but oh well. Watch there be the original sounds in supply drops lmao.

    • Mick

      I think it would be kinda weird to add the same exact sound from the original game. Make it sound different so that it fits with the newer updated version of the game.

    • aaa187

      Because the original sound like shit, all of COD4 original sounds like shit. Have you played it recently? I play every few times a week and it is the worst sound COD out of all.

      Good thing they arent using the original

  • ccrows

    I could have lived with it either way TBH, but at least they are listening to the community…

  • Emre

    They should update them all.
    They sound of the weapons is crap.

  • The Gaming Revolution

    I already like ravens customer support better than Treyarch and Infinity Ward combined. MWR is gonna be lit

    • lunator100hd .

      Its not that hard since they remake an already solid game.

    • jt3z

      Lost all credibility when you said lit*

      • Nothing wrong with saying lit

  • ToonToons22

    Awesome job! Raven, please fix the announcers’ voices next. That Spetsnaz announcer sounds way too cringy. I can’t imagine playing MWR and hearing him say “oooooour UUUUAAAVVVV is ooooonliiine!”

    • jordanxbrookes

      That’s how it’s always been. You’re on about changing the script which won’t happen, but I agree we need to have those announcer voiceovers as close to the original as can be.

      • BradyAlucard

        Did they even hire the original voice actors? They need to be louder, as in screaming. The announcers in current CoD games are booooooooring.

        • Former

          The 9 year olds make up for the lack of screaming.

        • jordanxbrookes

          I miss WAW announcers.

          • tha_online_gamertz

            Kiefer sutherland did have a sexy voice.

          • BradyAlucard

            That’s specifically what I was talking about man! And why did you throw shade at me last week about Infinite Warfare and calling me a CoD fanboy?! We’re supposed to be bros!

        • Re hire ice cube

          • BradyAlucard

            Black Ops 1 was where the baby voice actors first appeared. Nothing beats “enemy AC-130 above!”.

          • The guy that rapped fuck the police = baby confirmed

    • PuddleOfStix

      The Spetsnaz announcer sounds Chinese, not Russian.

    • ShadowRonald

      I want Morgan Freeman as the announcer.

  • lunator100hd .

    In my opinion they should get rid of medals, they dont fit with the game at all.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Agreed or at least give the option to turn them off.

      • I think it fits but its too big of a emblem on the screen. I think they should minimize it, or yeah, give the option to turn them off.

          Some Reddit dickhead messaged me

  • snake56

    What’s next? Are they gonna ask Raven to put the old textures back in the game?

  • Ak74u

    They better make the deagles sound the same as cod 4 and all they really need to fix now are the shitty voice anouncers

    • Dr. Edward Richtofen

      It sounds awful in cod4

  • jt3z

    People care about the stupidest things smh

  • BudEagle

    This game isnt even out and they are ALREADY patching lol. Awesome to see them reacting to feedback so quickly.

    • Jon

      Smart move by Raven. They are hoping to gain fan appreciation so that they too can become part of the COD series.

  • Gamerazor247

    I love how every is getting agitated about people being “mad” by the SFX, yet I remember a lot of people making fun of and raging at SHG reusing other weapons SFX, for the SD weapons, but now it’s different…? We’re unappreciative now, eh? Makes sense…

    • DEMOLITION12

      of course that’s different retard

  • Minority

    Who cares about this minor shit?

      • Anything is edgy these days, huh?

        • DeadZombieGaming 12

          Yes

  • CyberWolf

    Great! Happy now? Jeez…Next thing I know, you’ll be demanding that they revert to the original graphics and 3D models. I bet even those would affect the gameplay somehow…

  • Michael Romo

    Hey Raven, you should give some advice to Treyarch, IW, and Sledgehammer about listening to fans

    • CoDforever

      I dont know, personally I feel like Treyarch listened a lot about Bo3 post release. Bo3 has made several major improvements since launch based on feedback.

  • You_aBum

    I liked the new M40A3 sound… Am I the only one?

    • kia0525

      I would’ve been fine with either, but it is what it is. They still need to do something about those announcers.

  • Brad of Duty

    Why do they listen to this horseshit feedback that doesn’t matter whatsoever instead of huge problems like domination switching sides?? Backwards ass community

    • Dog shit

      why is that even a problem ?

  • imBATMAN

    glad to HEAR about this hehehe get it? I have mad depression

  • Sam

    I hope raven become a lead development team they are really listening to the community. I’ll be honest infinite warfare looks good compared to ghosts. I’ll have to try the beta because bf1 looked good but the beta was so bad.

  • I mean, personally, I don’t really care but it’s cool for those kind of people I guess.

  • Smayo

    Good, only 3 things to go,

    1) the cringy announcers
    2) the removal of those stupid medals and texts next to the +100 after a kill.
    3) halftime in domination… ffs

    • Former

      Halftime in dom isn’t so bad. We should all be used to it by now anyway.

      • Smayo

        It sucks, you can lock down the game in the first round if you play for the objective, the second round is just capture and camp the flags, sometimes even the spawn flag is enough to win on points in the 2nd round.

        Dom is ruined for pubs since this MLG round switch BS…

        • Former

          I think it’s more balanced overall. Each team gets a chance to start from the potentially advantageous side.

  • SimplyHammer

    I just hope the Desert Eagle makes it into the IW classic weapons… I’d love to see how they’d balance it
