DYNAMIC GUNSHOT SOUNDS - WWISE, UNREAL

 
Dynamic Gunshot Sounds
Watch Now
 

This project was my attempt at replicating the effect of hearing gunshot sounds change based on their environment that you often hear in first person shooter games. I was lucky enough to be able to record the mechanical sounds from a small collection of firearms, so all the reloading and mech layer sounds in this project are original. I also wanted to work with convolution reverb and create my own, so the reverb effect heard in the tunnel is an original impulse response recorded in a bike tunnel. The way I set it up was to have each weapon get a switch container in Wwise that gets tripped by a box collider at the entrance to each new area, which in turn plays different layers underneath the main gunshot sound. I went through a first person shooter character pawn tutorial to set up the weapons and controls, and used two demo levels from the Unreal Engine Marketplace for the environment. This project was a lot of fun to work on and I hope you enjoy what you hear!
