Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Fans’ Major Complaint About ’09 Weapon Audio Bundle

Enthusiasts of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 have voiced their dissatisfaction with the ’09 Weapon Audio Bundle, saying its gun sounds are not the same as the original. This bundle was part of Season 3 in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which came as a pleasant surprise for veteran fans of the series.

Infinity Ward appears to be having a hard time regaining the loyalty of their fans. The developer has been popular for creating Call of Duty titles, but this cycle has been particularly challenging. A lot of the issues stem from the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 playlists which keep getting changed, making it hard for gamers to get used to them. This latest audio issue won’t help those who have been unsatisfied with the game up to this point.

These dont even sound like the classic guns

JoeyAKangaroo’s video points to the widespread complaint that the guns in the pack don’t sound like their 2009 versions. They illustrate this with a direct comparison of audio from Modern Warfare 2 and the new title, which clearly demonstrate the disparity. One Call of Duty fan even demonstrated the difference in sound effects between 2022 and 2009 some time ago, and the contrast was quite pronounced.

When Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was first released, fans were upset about the audio microtransactions, and it remains a source of disappointment after a month. Some in the discussion have suggested that the low-quality of the original sounds might be the reason for the low quality of the DLC, as sound design has changed significantly since 2009. Those buying the DLC should be aware that the quality could be compromised, but the original sounds should remain the same.

It will be interesting to observe if Infinity Ward makes any modifications to the audio to make it akin to what players anticipated at launch. They may even incorporate more sounds to the set, such as other firearms featured in both titles. It was a shock for many when Infinity Ward brought back the Intervention in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and excluded it from the sound pack. The classic sound of the Intervention could be a feasible choice in the future, since it is its most defining attribute.

The widely popular first-person shooter game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, can be played on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S consoles.
