Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Fans’ Major Complaint About ’09 Weapon Audio Bundle
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 followers are displeased with the recent ’09 Weapon Audio Bundle, asserting the firearms noises don’t resemble the original sounds. The bundle was included as part of the Season 3 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 , and was an unexpected treat for longtime fans of the series.
This time, Infinity Ward appears to have difficulty gaining the loyalty of the fans. Historically, the developer has been a favorite for Call of Duty games, but this particular cycle has been especially complicated. A lot of the difficulty revolves around the playlists of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which are constantly being rearranged before the gamers can settle into a routine. This most recent debacle with the audio will do little to appease those who have been unhappy with the game.

JoeyAKangaroo’s video highlights a common criticism of the pack; the guns don’t sound like they did in Modern Warfare 2 in 2009. This is demonstrated in a direct video comparison, showing the difference between the two versions. A Call of Duty fan previously revealed what the 2022 game sounded like with the 2009 effects, and the contrast was quite remarkable.
When it was first released, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 elicited a lot of anger from fans due to the inclusion of audio microtransactions. Unfortunately, a month later, it has not met their expectations. Some in the thread have speculated that this could be because of the low-quality of the original sound compared to modern standards. However, those who want modern sound design would not be purchasing the 2009 sound pack. Therefore, those who do buy the DLC should be expecting, at the very least, a sound similar to the original game.
It will be intriguing to witness if Infinity Ward makes any modifications to the sounds to bring them in line with what gamers anticipated when it was released. They may even consider including more sounds to the set, with other arms featured in both titles. When Infinity Ward brought back the Intervention in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, it was an unexpected occurrence to find it not included in the sound pack. The iconic sound of the Intervention is possibly its hallmark, so there is true potential for its classic sound to be offered in the future.
The widely popular installment of Call of Duty, Modern Warfare 2, can now be played on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
