Default Real life soldiers - how loud is a bullet crack?

Hey guys!

I am just wondering - since all the videos do not represent the "real deal".

How loud are bullet snaps of bullets that go past your head at real close distance (like 1-5m)?
If anyone knows, please post.

Compare the loudness to the volume of a rifle or maybe anything that I can recognise as a non-army guy.

Is it really really loud? How does it feel?

And if anyone knows - how do distant sonic cracks sound compared to the close ones? Are they just quieter or maybe muffled? Or maybe a completely different sound? Any reference videos would be great.

I am working on some sonds for a project and would like to know.

Thank you in advance!

Mega.

Hate to bring it up, but an airsoft BB can whistle past your ear pretty nicely, and thats a small plastic ball thats not even going near the speed of sound, so a bullet must be pretty loud.

I believe the way it works is;

Anything close = whiz or hissing sound as it passes by

Anything farther = snap or crack sound as it passes by

Can't be replicated properly in BF2 without causing severe bugs. I've spent entire weeks trying...believe me.

Damn, I wish you hadn't posted that, Jaymz. Now all I'm thinking about is how freakin' awesome that would be in-game.

from some of your responses I'm guessing you want to know about all the sounds associated with firing.

first up, it sounds incredibly different depending on where you are in relation to the different parts.

I'm only trained and familiar with the steyr rifle, so that may or may not influence my experiences.

a thing to keep in mind is that you can hear all the actions going on, whereas games seem to only focus on one at a time.

it is 'quitest' when firing the rifle in my opinion. the sound is similar to a car door closing, but with your ear right next to it. you can hear the bullet fly but its something you have to concentrate on, usually you miss it. then you hear the echo come back. this all takes less then a second.

when standing 100m ish away from the firer and not in the line of fire, it's sounds like a really drawn out whip crack, it's like parts of the sound travel at different speeds.

when standing 1-5km away over open ground it kind of sounds like someone clapping their thigh

1-5km in urban environment causes only the high frequency parts of the sound to be heard, PR models this pretty well.

and i've never been shot at so I cant give you any help there.

had a vetran tell me once it was like he felt it more then he heard it the first time that rounds were coming at him this was right before he soiled himself.

depending on all sorts of things the bullets apparently make lots of weird sounds. especially when they hit concrete, you get lots of strange buzzing effects so i am told.
