This pack almost completely replaces the low quality and honestly boring reload/weapon manipulation sounds within Payday 2 as well as replacing most of the weapon shot sounds.  This has taken me about 2 weeks, the first week caused me to loose a lot of hours because once you get into the groove of finding where sounds are located you just don't want to stop.  I'm bringing this pack to the public because as of now there are now sfx sound replacement packs out there and I felt like trying my hand and seeing what everyone thought.  I'm an audio guy so when things do not sound right they nag me constantly and when you put as many hours into Payday 2 as I have they start to really irritate you, so once the user tools were made I set out to replace as much of the boring Payday 2 sounds that I could.  Now that my pack being out for a full year and how it has matured as a creation I am now calling this a complete sound pack, things will still be changed but as far as over all content by far this pack as the most.

Most of these sounds come from an almost dead Source Mod called Firearms Source, I used to play it way back in HL1 when it was just Firearms and they've always had top notch weapon animations, recently their sound guy has been putting out some very nice stuff so I felt that if I ever got the chance I would import them into Payday 2.  I take zero credit for making the sounds however I do credit myself with creating and doing the necessary work in order to convert them over to Payday 2.  I do not have the largest gun shot sound library so I was not able to put everything into this pack that I wanted to (namely some BF3 gun shots).  Other sounds came from Insurgency and Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45, Call of Juarez Gunslinger, Killing Floor 1 & 2, Battlefield 3 & 4, Shadow Warrior (the remake), Medal of Honor Warfighters, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Doom and real sounds from my Steam friend Hashimoto Soda.

This has been a one man operation and I was only getting feedback from a select 2 or 3 Steam friends to help me work out possible sound errors and what not so if there are some inconsistencies please understand that 1. That I am entirely new at this and only just started 2 weeks ago and 2. I am only human and I can only fix and catch so much by myself.  If you would like to offer help of any kind feel free, if you happen to have some sounds that you'd like put into the game again, feel free.  While I'm not sure how much I can improve upon this pack I know I can always improve upon it and if I find something that I personally feel will add more quality to this pack then I will go right into it and change it.

Sorry if I'm blathering on but I am trying to cover all of my bases and make sure that everyone knows what went into this pack, this is a lot of time and effort as well as love, I created this for myself but my friends felt that I needed to release it to the public.  I do hope you enjoy it and if there are any problems please feel free to contact me.

Everything within the Readme.txt will explain to you how to install this mod properly, see the readme file.

If you have any question or comments do not put them here, this is not the place for dissucssion, simply follow this link:

Some users are saying that they can not download, I have no control over this matter thus I suggest that you PM/Email the site admins to find out if something is wrong, this issue has only recently manifested this badly with some people so it makes me think that it's a site issue.  

To those users who say that I need to make a SECOND pack in order to undo my changes to the player impact sounds please see page 17 (or page 33 depending on your forum settings) in the Steam Thread to get an understanding as to why that won't happen.
If you are unsure which files were added or changed look at the "date modified" numbers within the zip folder which should tell you what I've changed.
You can also check out user Grifter's Twitch account as he has been receiving regular updates and uses my pack and he also streams so if you want probably the closest thing to what the pack sounds like go view his past and present recordings:

If you're having problems installing the mod another user created this video to perhaps further explain what you'll need to do (this is not my video so do not spam the creator of the video with requests, come to this forum or add me on Steam).

Don't charge people for this, do not steal or use anything from this pack without getting the go-ahead from me first.

7-11-17: Fixed missing "new" 3rd person reload sounds, all should be working now, I'm not sure if I'll be able to replace these since it would really require another person for me to listen to every single gun in 3rd person reloading, bot just aren't reliable enough.

It's an FN F2000 from what I checked.

New Update passed through, adding a new gun. The Union 5.56 Rifle.

11-30-2017, 01:07 AM
@ Pierce - if you're referring to the increased bass and apparent loudness of the shot sound, yes, I have never been able to figure out what causes that exact issue for the RPK and the AK-17, the lead sound dev doesn't even know (go figure right?...).  There is simply no rhyme or reason as to why just these two weapons react this way to any sort of change to their default sound.

11-29-2017, 10:30 PM
Are you saying even if you put in the insurgency2 RPK sounds it would still sound like that?

11-06-2017, 03:06 AM
@Spitphire, go to the thread if you really wish to continue this chat, I have explained WHY the RPK sound is the way that it is multiple times and I'm not going to do it here as it will just get lost while at the same time cluttering up the download page itself. 

11-05-2017, 03:08 PM
but maybe i'm just being picky "shrug" do what you will its your mod/time and if you think it's fine as is than so be it.
regardless thank you for putting in the time and work to create this mod and i wish you luck on all your future endeavors.

11-05-2017, 02:59 PM
i think you're misunderstanding what i meant, my issue with the rpk sound isn't the sound volume as that is the same as the other sounds in the pack but with the sound effect itself which is very low quality compared to the other sounds in the pack, to where even the vanilla sound is better. 
here's a comparison so you can see what i mean  vanilla:  with your sound pack: 
also i'm not sure what you mean about half life sounds the ak/rpk sounds in the valve sound pack are from the LFD2 ak47. also to be clear i'm not trying to dis you or your mod i was just wondering if it would be possible to take another look at the ak/rpk sounds as even my friend who normally couldn't care less about sound effects in video games thought it sounded out of place.

11-03-2017, 11:49 PM
Just saying spitsphire it was not "taken out of generic '80s".  You'll never get a good RPK sound because of the way Overkill made the RPK, every single sound that you put on that weapon will sound much louder then it should be, not even the head sound dev at Overkill knows why it and the AK-17 have the same issue.  Honestly HL2 never had good weapon audio wise except for the combine rifle, even when HL2 was fresh and new almost none of the weapon sounds impressed me they were quite a step backwards from HL1.

11-03-2017, 03:45 PM
o one more thing before i forget i've noticed while using this pack the first and third person sounds are quieter than the vanilla sounds so i was wondering if it would be possible to raise them slightly?
thanks again.

hay hawk been using the mod for a while now and its pretty cool, one of my biggest gripes with it though is the fire sound for the rpk lmg its.........well to be frank it sounds like it was gotten out of a folder titled generic machine gun sounds_80s, and its very out of place compared to all the other sounds added by this pack. i was wondering if it would be possible to replace it with a better/diferent sound. personally i replace it (and most of the other ak sounds) with the sounds from the valve weapon sound pack:  tho even they aren't quit up to snuff in terms of quality.
like i said tho over all very good mod keep it up!

hi which file is the one for damage taking sound ?

Just saying that if the worst issue that you can find with something is that you need to read and follow directions then I guess you may have other things wrong that require greater urgency then installing a mod because honestly creating all of 2 folders is not "terribly complicated" sorry to say.

It is indeed terribly complicated.

I still don't understand why you're just putting the soundfiles in the .zip, along with a readme how to install them... It's unnecessarily complicated. You could just put the files in "Hawks_soundpack/soundbanks/" inside the .zip and write in the description that it goes into mod_overrides.

Well gang Overkill effectively killed my mod, after their last BLT update which changed something in the files I can no longer use the bundler to extract the game files and thus I can not change anythingUnless someone comes up with a new solution it's pretty much a done deal, if anyone has any suggestions or methods that are reasonable (don't require you to understand C++ or something) then I'm all ears.   I'll update what I can but now I'm pretty limited even with stuff that's already been in the game for years.

@ Afterburn - I'm sorry but having 2 separate large files that I had to maintain separately is just too much of  PITA and again they're fine to me, that said I just got done lowering the volume on all of the armor impact sounds by 4 dB so hopefully that'll be enough, I never found them too loud to be quite honest.  Since Overkill broke the file system in their attempt to decrease file size and so on I am unable to get any of the new WW2 weapons at this time so I'm just trying to do something to keep the pack alive, coming up empty handed though other then that change.

Hawk isn't going to remove any of the sounds. He's said in forum posts and discussions that he won't. I would guess the ear piercing armor hit, health hit and flashbang sounds are in the regular_sfx.bnk file. Remove that file.

@Hawk Mkay, I love the mod. Although I really hate the armor damage sounds, I can't tell which file is for the armor. Please help, thanks!

Hi. Do you mind if I use sounds from your pack to create a pack for PDTH?
