Fighting scenes are intensified by amplifying the visceral sound of punches, kicks, and other attacks. Excaggerated yet believable impact sounds emphasize the savagery and expertise of combat, making each hit feel significant.

To simulate footsteps, clothing rustles, and weapon handling, foley artists produce noises. Hidden auditory nuances provide action sequences depth and realism, making the surroundings feel real.

Dynamic Range: Sound design underscores action sequence peaks and valleys with dynamic range. Rhythmic contrasts between loud, explosive moments and calmer, tense ones keep the audience on edge and improve the action.  

Music: The film's score and sound effects set the tone and tempo of action scenes. Adding suspense and excitement to the scenes, music often matches them.  

Directional Audio: Advanced sound design tools place the audience in the action. To enhance immersion, panning effects and spatial audio localize noises like gunfire and footsteps.
