i think they're missing that PEEEOOWWW effect. they sound a bit like an electric bolt, like a tesla coil or something. specially the rifle.

too bad, now you will never know the ancient secrets of supsupers long gone avatar ;)

maybe we should just call them "Beam weapon" sounds...
I wasn't aware that light made noise...


well yeh, i think real lasers just make a high pitched noise (mostlly out of hearing range) and a click when they first activate... not much fun to listen to

Big lasers make noise.
Electricity on the starting end, and everything suddenly melting on the receiving end.

the origional plan (which i forgot) was to make one noise for the laser itself and several hit sounds depending on the material it hit. sorting out some hit sounds could help.

The air itself might make some noise with really powerful lasers, but I'm not a laserologist.

it probably wouldn't but im choosing to believe that it would ^_^ which is where the electricity sound comes in. i mean the sound electricity makes is caused by the air being torn apart by the passage of the electricity.
...or something
