MkB42 Sound Mod


Heya guys,

This mod changes the weak original MKb sound to a heavier one. The original was historically inaccurate, but the modded version too. If there's enough interest, I'll try to create one with historically accurate sounds. Good, accurate sounds are hard to get though.

This mod features a heavy, bass-full sound that finally makes your MKb sound like a real assault rifle. The sound files come from Heroes&Generals (which some of you may remember). The sound of their StG stayed with me and I wanted it back. Yes their awesome support banned me and is now coming to take down this mod. Nontheless, thanks to Reto for creating this sound (even if I know they hired someone else to create them)

1. Sub to this mod
2. Start the game
3. Enjoy! (yes it's that simple)


Method 1. (recommended as first)

1.1. No need to backup

1.2. Delete the file \Documents\My Games\RedOrchestra2\ROGame\Published\CookedPC\Packages\Audio\AUD_Firearms_Rifle_MkB42.upk

Method 2. (for more safety, takes longer though. Recommended if method 1 doesn't work for you)

2.1. Backing up
Needless to say but I still will. If you want to stay on the safe side, you have to copy and paste this file somewhere else to keep it safe:
YourDisk:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Red Orchestra 2\ROGame\BrewedPC\Packages\Audio\AUD_Firearms_Rifle_MkB42.upk

2.2. Restoring and uninstalling the mod if you didn't backup the file
Delete: YourDisk:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Red Orchestra 2\ROGame\BrewedPC\Packages\Audio\AUD_Firearms_Rifle_MkB42.upk

Then head to \Documents\My Games\RedOrchestra2\ROGame\Published\CookedPC\Packages\Audio\AUD_Firearms_Rifle_MkB42.upk
Delete that too.

Then verify the integrity of the game's cache. I don't know how long this takes though. It might take a while.

2.3. Restoring and uninstalling if you have the backup file
Replace: YourDisk:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Red Orchestra 2\ROGame\BrewedPC\Packages\Audio\AUD_Firearms_Rifle_MkB42.upk with your backup file

Then head to \Documents\My Games\RedOrchestra2\ROGame\Published\CookedPC\Packages\Audio\AUD_Firearms_Rifle_MkB42.upk
Delete that too.

- Thanks to HerrFockeWulf for testing this out with me!
- This does work on multiplayer, but maybe not on all servers
- Keep in mind that this mod only changes the sound your own gun produces. You will still hear the normal sound coming from other MkB players.
- For me one of my sound mods causes disconnection after Match end, when it starts loading. You just have to rejoin the server via server browser.

Good luck!
