Did Roblox remove the death sound?

As of Jul 27, 2022, Roblox removed the original death sound, “oof”.

According to Roblox’s tweet, they are building a future where creators can thrive.

To achieve this, any asset and sound will have a presence in the Avatar Shop.

Hence, their roadmap has the ability to add sounds by getting them directly from the creators and licensors.

Similar to customizing your clothing, you will also be able to customize sounds for your avatar.

The “oof” sound from Roblox was also removed due to a licensing issue.

Roblox have replaced it with a default death sound which many users are complaining about.

They plan to expand their Avatar Shop with a wide range of old and new sounds in the future.

The tweet has a bunch of replies saying that they hate the new death sound.

Here’s a reply by @TerraneRBLX, “People are gonna despise you for removing the “oof” sound”.

That said, other users were satisfied that Roblox was transparent about the change.

Here’s a reply by @CodeRainster, “I hate the change, but I am happy they told us and not just randomly remove it”.
