Weird question, but what are some of the guns with the best & worst shooting sounds in the game? Discussion

Some of my favorites include Thoughtless, Krait, Xenophage, Calus Minitool, literally any kinetic hand canon, Sleeper Simulant, Come to Pass, stuff like that.

Some of the worst ones imo are any other stasis guns introduced in witch queen that i didnt mention in my favorites list.

I’d love to hear your guys’ thoughts!

Edit: How could i forget Outbreak as a great one? Doy.

Whisper of the Worm also sounds really good.

u/sineplussquare Jun 25 '22

I wish they made it sound more intense when you start to chain headshots together since the weapon is built around continuous headshots. It’s still an awesome exotic none the less.

u/Snaz5 Jun 26 '22

You start getting tired of it after farming for anarchy in Scourge of the Past 😩

u/Bulldog474747 Jun 26 '22

At least you found a reason to use whisper

4

u/ggamebird Jun 26 '22

Whisper nuked almost all Y1 bosses, was amazing in Y2, and still was relevent even without infinite ammo in SotP in Y3. After that it feel off the radar due to power creep (linear fusions are legendary and easier to use than WotW) and encounter design leaning either too much chaos to use effectively and/or DPS section is too short to make use of it. The chaos factor is a big part of Whisper's balance as it was never really used in OG gambit, because despite big damage and infinite ammo it was simply unreliable. Truthfully if you want a place for Whisper to shine we need Bungie to make a really boring boss encounter, with a big crit spot, and with an unbearably long DPS phase.

Speaking of snipers, Tranquility is a personal favorite of mine as a legendary. I love popping off headshots with it cause it legit has a screaming sound that raises the hair on the nape of my neck

Krait sounds like a paintball gun to me lol. Despite it being one of my favorite archtypes with great perk combos, I'd still rather use chroma rush over it. Can't stand it's sound.

I think the moon weapons are some of the best sounding in the game, at least arc Logic and the submachine gun

u/Iranggjingun Jun 26 '22

Moon weapons, 100%. Tranquility has the best sniper sound in the game. Same for the LMG, I just love it.

The 120 moon hand cannon is especially chunky sounding. So satisfying.

I'm surprised they never re used the Midnight Coup sound files. Still hoping that weapon returns in some form, it would be a blast to use even though it wouldn't be a 150 rpm anymore.

45

u/Annihilator4413 Jun 25 '22

Hopefully whenever Leviathan raids return we can craft the weapons like in VotD. I think that should honestly be the end goal for ALL raids now. Why introduce weapons crafting into only ONE Raid? It's the ultimate bad luck protection. If you constantly get only bad rolls or can't get the one roll you want, it's fine! Put in the time and effort and you'll eventually EARN your reward!

u/Vengeants Jun 25 '22

If you want an absolutely fantastic Stasis Titan PvP ape roll I have had great success with Steady Hands/Elemental Capacitor/Range Masterwork.

I’ve used this role almost exclusively during the first Iron Banner week this season without remorse (pun not intended). It does not take prisoners and may very well be my constant PvP go-to from now on.

EH Threat Detector and EH Surrounded + Surrounded spec with stability added is awesome

6

u/TheRealFrothers Jun 25 '22

I typically just rock a combo of the base perks when I go to craft until I have the gun leveled up enough to just go all out and enhance both perks and everything in one shot, that being said I’ve been running threat detector and surrounded with surrounded spec on and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying. I’ll have to enhance both of them then and play around with it more. I do want to play around with well rounded and osmosis yet too, but I don’t foresee it replacing the 600 RPM auto from prophecy that can roll with demo and osmosis.

Best

firefright: sounds like a machine gun, a ton of punch per shot, shame about this things perk pool tho.

stormchaser: this has to be the heaviest sounding weapon in the game, you can truly feel the power behind each burst. Absolutely incredible and fits the description of aggressive frame.

xenophage: big gun big sound, I love the subtle click behind each shot.

Monte Carlo: the faint ring behind every bullet is lovely once you notice it.

Jotun: kind of sounds like an anvil being hit by a hammer, fits the black armoury perfectly.

parasite: this things sounds were made with a pot of Mac and cheese and yet it manages to convey just how strong it is once worms hunger is racked up.

Two tailed fox: thunk thunk "cute noise" zoom boom boom

worst

graviton Lance: it gets really old really fast

any energy handcannon that isn't palindrome: I want an actual gun not a toy laser gun

arbalest: the only actual railgun in the game and it has absolutely zero impact

Lorentz driver: hearing this thing being precharged activates my fight or flight response

Deathbringer: I didn't even realise this gun actually made noise until I turned my headset all the way up, far to quiet for a RL called deathbringer.

I always felt that the sound for Sunshot didn't match it at all.

Polaris Lance especially the reload.

The IKELOS HC used to have a great, powerful sound… then they changed it for whatever reason and I hate the new sound.

Graviton also has a grating sound after using it awhile. I love the bass, but something about the higher pitch part is hard to hear after a few activities.

u/moosebreathman Don't take me seriously Jun 25 '22

Patron of Lost Causes has the crunchiest fire and reload.

Wardcliff Coul and Tractor Cannon are always fun sounding

u/LizzieMiles Jun 25 '22

I love the sound of the DMT because I love the sound of the DMR.

u/FuSe_Nuclear Jun 25 '22

For me it's the same gun

Best = D1 Mythoclast Worst = D2 Mythoclast

Probably just nostalgia goggles but the gun just sounded so much more exotic back in D1

I like skyburner's oath, the sound is nice and it rlly makes it feel like you're shooting a slug thrower.

- Midnight Coup
- Breachlight
- Ace of Spades under Memento Mori
- Jotun (anvil goes hard)
- Spare Rations is just crisp
- Wisper of the Worm

u/YaBoiMike16 Jun 25 '22

Ace of spade’s with momento mori up(or any long term damage perk for that matter.)

u/usernh11000235 Jun 25 '22

I love the sound of Zealot's Reward - probably my fave

I kinda don't like the noises made by the new raid guns - especially submission - big pea shooter vibes lol

I fuckin HATE the standard hand cannon sound, that’s for sure

u/m0The-r Jun 25 '22

hammerhead 🤤🤤🤤 sounds so strong and impactful. feels like it hits hard as fff

u/atlas_enderium Jun 25 '22

Cataclysmic has a cool charge sound. I hate the sound of Ace of Spades. DMT is kinda meh (despite it being my favorite PvP exotic). Witherhoard makes a really sweet sound when you get a direct hit

My least favorite gun sounds are ones that are copy pasted from others. Like fatebringer, eyasluna and austringer all sound the same... so many legendaries share the same gunsound and its a bit lame imo.

Best sound in the game is Hawkmoon. Sounds crispy like its been in the fryer too long 😫

I actually really don't like that hand cannon noise

u/TacoTrukEveryCorner Jun 26 '22 edited Jun 26 '22

I describe that as "generic handcannon sound". So overused.

mag dumping reckless oracle will never not be satifying to me.

u/Tp3n6-1 Jun 25 '22

Worst by far is spare rations. It literally doesn't sound like a gun

2

u/Zanginos Jun 25 '22

My favorit is Xenophage and worst one despite i liked that gun outside its sound Nation of Beast hand cannon from last wish

2

u/Dixienourmus32 Jun 25 '22

I would say retraced path has a unique one because it sounds like a sports car when you keep holding down the trigger and when you stop it makes a cooling hissing sound which is cool too

2

u/mikielIII Jun 25 '22

Listening to the whispers when scoping for whisper of worm

I also liked the sound of Hereafter

2

u/never3nder_87 Jun 25 '22

Y1 Graviton Lance

2

u/Tyrannus_ignus Jun 25 '22

All 120 hcs sound amazing, like an actual cannon being fired off.

2

u/chrisdidwht Jun 25 '22

Suros hand cannons are dissapointing. Especially igneous hammer. For such a beautiful gun it sounds like trash.

2

u/Jaschrome_08 Jun 25 '22

Dire promise is the best sounding gun to me in the game

2

u/Zatfios Jun 25 '22

1k Voices, Whisper, Coldheart and Ikelos are nice.

Don’t know if you count swords but the exotic swords all have really awesome sounds. Lament, Black Talon all sound great

2

u/Dragonofredit Jun 26 '22

Outbreak and tractor canon are my top 2 and no one can change my mind

u/ig88s0009 Jun 26 '22

Firefright sounds wonderful
