Ultimate Audio Bang Podcast: What Makes a Great Online Shooter?
As you might expect, Imogen and I kick off this week’s episode of Ultimate Audio Bang getting excited about Deathloop before realizing that there is a lot of other hot stuff to cover. Hear our thoughts on the Call Of Duty: Vanguard reveal, the Battlefield 2042 delay, the Overwatch League using an early version of Overwatch 2 in 2022, and more shooting stuff.
And for this week’s theme, are we considering the elements that make up a good online shooter? Cue a solid discussion of heavy guns and footsteps. And also a little more Deathloop discussion. We’re both actually quite passionate about footsteps in games, especially if they’re varied. God, we love footsteps.
Finally, it was my turn to surprise Imogen with a few player names, all of which came from my time in Splitgate. Again, I learn that something is not a vegetable and we end with a debate about some weird dance steps.

Publisher Activision Blizzard is currently being sued by the California State Department of Employment and Housing (DFEH) in a lawsuit alleging a “frat boy” culture that created “a fertile ground for harassment and discrimination against women “. Several high-level staff, including former President J. Allen Brack, have resigned. This week, the DFEH further alleged that Activision Blizzard suppressed evidence.
