As part of the Player Appreciation Month [] we present another issue of “Ask DICE”, where you have the chance to ask DICE developers questions about their specific fields of expertise. This time it is audio director Bence Pajor's time. This is how Bence describes his role here at DICE:

BENCE PAJOR: “I’ve been working with the audio for the Battlefield series since 2003; basically all Battlefield games since Battlefield 2 to the present. As Audio Director my task is to make sure the sound of the game stays true to the audio vision of the DICE Audio team. This includes all sorts of field recordings including weapons, vehicles, and everything else you can hear in the game. I’ve probably worked on almost every aspect of the Battlefield games so I’m more than happy to answer any question regarding sound!”

Post your questions on sound design in this forum thread for a chance to get them answered by Bence Pajor. Remember that relevant, clear, and concise questions have a better chance of getting answered!

Please remember that this thread is for questions rather than commentary. Posts that do not contain a relevant question will be removed. Please ensure your comments are in line with the Guide to Forum Use rules [].

The answers will be published by the end of this week. Thank you!

Most of the jets sound good, but the A-10 soundloop can be a bit annoying, considering how sexy it sounds irl

Why is there no sound when a helicopter or plane crashes...just an explosion?

Could you explain some things behind the disappearing sound bug?

I think you should make gunshots from tanks or choppers or any thing that is being fired sound better from father away and not just nothing, other then that maybe bring back a few gun sounds from BF3 and BFBC2 that's good.

How do you make weapons sound like they really kick? When I put my headphones on, I can actually feel the characteristics of each gun and that plays a huge role in my gaming experience.
I believe you, but my trigger finger won't get any less shaky than this.

with all of the extra things added to battlefield this year, was it harder to sync the sound in to the game ? and is this why there is no game sound on certain maps at the very beginning of a game ?

Make an engine start noise, for when you get into vehicles. And fix the sound bug in the begining of the round, including the sound bug in TDM.

Why is it that there is no sound for about 30 seconds at the beginning of each round? It's quite frustrating when flying helicopters. Other than that great job!

English voiceover for Russian and Chineese Soldiers.

Fix the sound loop crash.

Fix the MBT/IFV sound+crosshair issue.

Fix DMR sounds.

Fix the boat burst-cannon sound loop.

Fix the game so you can hear all the bullet sounds of all the players shooting around you or @ you.

I think everyone wants to know why the DMR's sound like a pea shooter.

Also the tank banging sound at the beginning of every round is awful.
