The purpose of this mod is to make the default gunshot sound effects less deafening. The sound files included are standard gunshot sounds from WoW reduced in volume by about 10dB, still audible but significantly less distracting. I originally created this for my personal use, but as the volume of gunfire in WoW seems to be a common complaint Ive made it available to others.

To install this mod:
1) Unzip this zip file to a temporary directory.
2) Move the extracted "Sound" directory to the "Data" subdirectory of your World of Warcraft installation.
3) Check that the extracted files and subdirectories match this:

C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Data\Sound\Item\Weapons\Gun

"Weapons" subdirectory contains:
"Gun" subdirectory
GunFire01.wav

"Gun" subdirectory contains:
GunFire01.wav
GunFire02.wav
GunFire03.wav
GunLoad01.wav
GunLoad02.wav
GunLoad03.wav

No challenge to Blizzard's copyright is intended.

My WoW account has expired and thus unfortunately I wont be in a position to test this little mod against further WoW updates. However because of its nature this mod will probably continue to work indefinitely unless Blizzard make significant changes to WoW.

BANG!

Actually, that's the main reason I greatly prefer bows to guns. They're much, much quieter!

I extracted the relevant audio files using mpqviewer, then simply tweaked them using Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net). Should anyone prefer different volumes I'd recommend giving it a go, Audacity is pretty intuitive.

Well now, this is interesting. How exactly do you go about decreasing a files dB level?

And yes, the sound of guns is rather loud when they go off. (Or at least it was... )
