Halo Infinite: Cool Video Shows How They Captured Bullet Sounds Without Using Bullets
Check out the latest behind-the-scenes video for the next-generation Halo game.
While it may be sometime longer until we finally see Halo Infinite gameplay, developer 343 Industries continues to share neat behind-the-scenes videos about how the team made the game.
This latest video, posted on Instagram, shows how the Halo Infinite audio team captured the sounds of bullets flying overhead. Earlier, the team actually captured real rounds flying overhead, but in this video, the studio got more creative. As you can see in the video below, they used a slingshot to launch bullet casings, washers, and various other objects overhead to capture more unique sounds.

"I know what you're thinking, and it's crazy." 🔊👂 In our last #SoundDesignSaturday, the Audio Team captured the sound of bullets whizzing overhead. This time, by using a slingshot to launch bullet casings, washers, and other objects, they were able to create even more whizzing sound effects at slower velocities. #halo #xbox #343industries #HaloInfinite #sounddesign #fieldrecording

This is just the latest behind-the-scenes video from the Halo Infinite audio team. Earlier videos showcased the team firing all different types of weapons for use in the next-generation Halo game. Yet another video showed the team using a propane cannon to capture sounds of explosions. The team also showed off how they recorded a Chevy El Camino, helicopters, and jet engines for the sounds of vehicles in Halo Infinite. And who could forget this delightful video featuring a pug whose guttural gruffs will be heard in Halo Infinite.
Halo Infinite releases in Holiday 2020 as a launch title for Microsoft's next-generation console, Xbox Series X, as well as PC. The game will also be playable on Xbox One as well as the other variations of the next-generation Xbox that might be coming.
These behind-the-scenes videos are fun to watch, but Halo fans are surely hoping to see some actual gameplay soon. Microsoft is hosting an Xbox Series X event on May 7, but this is focused on third-party games, so fans will have to wait a bit longer to see Halo Infinite in action.
