Making Random Death Sounds

Hello, I was wondering how I would to make a Random sounds playing each time a player dies. Last time I made a script of that but it was only was playing to everyone’s device and not playing from the dead character location.

Try this

local m = math.random(1,5)

And then use if statement

To play a script globally, that is, so all players can hear it, you must execute your code in a server script.

Try something like this:

local function main()

    -- Table of our sounds to use later
    local sounds : any = {}

    -- Iterate through the folder where the sounds are kept
    for k : number, v : Sound in pairs(sounds_folder_or_model) do

        -- Equality check that the currently iterated instance is a sound
        if v:IsA("Sound") then

            -- Append the currently iterated instance to our sounds table
            table.append(sounds, v)
        end
    end

    -- Pick a random entry between 1 and the length of our sounds table
    -- (the number of sounds we have) and play it
    sounds[math.random(1, #sounds)]:Play()
end

-- Never-ending loops are bad practice, but this is an example
while true do
    main()
    task.wait(1)
end

Hope this helps.

When the player dies, you can clone a random sound object from your folder of death sounds then parent it to their character’s humanoid root part (you could also parent the sound into a part then parent that to the humanoid root part’s position if their character gets destroyed after death).

An example might look something like this:

--*inside starter character scripts*

local Char = script.Parent

local SoundFolder = --path to your death sounds folder
local Sounds = SoundFolder:GetChildren()

local Humanoid = Char:WaitForChild("Humanoid")
local HumanoidRootPart = Char:WaitForChild("HumanoidRootPart")

Humanoid.Died:Connect(function()
   local ChosenSound = Sounds[math.random(1,#Sounds)]:Clone()
   ChosenSound.Parent = HumanoidRootPart
   ChosenSound:Play()
end)

And that should do the trick!

Thanks! That worked out pretty good.

If you want to SLIENCE the normal (and terrifying ) sound, edit the code to this:

--*inside starter character scripts*

local Char = script.Parent

local SoundFolder = --path to your death sounds folder
local Sounds = SoundFolder:GetChildren()

local Humanoid = Char:WaitForChild("Humanoid")
local HumanoidRootPart = Char:WaitForChild("HumanoidRootPart")

Humanoid.Died:Connect(function()
   local ChosenSound = Sounds[math.random(1,#Sounds)]:Clone()
   ChosenSound.Parent = HumanoidRootPart
   ChosenSound:Play()
HumanoidRootPart:WaitForChild("Died"):Destroy()
end)
