Halo Infinite: See How They Recorded Weapon Sounds

Developer 343 shows off how they recorded various weapon and explosion sounds for Halo Infinite.


While Halo Infinite has been delayed to 2021, developer 343 Industries is filling the time with a special behind-the-scenes look at how sound of the game's sounds were recorded.

In this newest video, we get a closer look at how the audio team captured the "small arms" weapon sounds for Halo Infinite, and it's very impressive. The team recorded in all manner of locations and situations, using weaponry that runs the gamut from hand-held slingshots to long rifles. There is an exciting sequence in the middle where a developer hunkers down behind a wall as bullets whizz overhead.

The Halo series is known for its strong audio design, and this video seems to demonstrate how that should continue with Halo Infinite. Check out the video above, but note that some of the scenes in the video were published on Instagram earlier in 2020 and back in 2019.

In other news, another lead on Halo Infinite has left the project. When the game is finally released in 2021, the multiplayer element will be free, and that could be a big deal. The entire game, too, will be available at no extra cost for Xbox Game Pass subscribers, including on Xbox Series X. You can read our Xbox Series X review now.
