How to get back the Oof sound effect in Roblox

The iconic Roblox death sound known as “Oof” both within and outside of the game’s community has suddenly been replaced with a new and unfamiliar sound. Many players are upset with this change and want it to go back to how it was before the update. Luckily, it’s very easy to replace the relevant Roblox files and put the oof right back where it belongs.

On Windows 10, open Windows Explorer, the file folder program. In the hotbar at the top of Windows Explorer, type %appdata%. This will open AppData, a normally hidden folder containing temporary files for many different programs on your computer, from Discord to Minecraft.

When it comes to programs included in AppData, Roblox is no exception. To find it, first open the “Local” folder and then within “Local” “Roblox”. Of all the Roblox data stored here, the most important when it comes to replacing the oof are the files added in the update that replaced it.

From here, open the “Versions” folder and locate the folder with the latest version. If you’re not sure which version folder to focus on, the most recent Roblox files include the “RobloxPlayerBeta” folder, so look for it when browsing through the versions.

Once you have found the correct version, go into the “Content” folder and locate the “Sounds” folder. In this section is a sound file called “ouch.ogg” which is both the name for the previous “oof” death sound and the new modern death sound. This is the new and current sound played when a player character takes damage and dies.

Roblox is designed to play any file named “ouch” present in this folder when a player character dies. This means that you can replace the current “ouch” file with another ogg-formatted sound file named “ouch” and the new sound will play instead. To replace the oof, the old sound effect was also called “ouch.ogg” and can be found online and downloaded fairly easily.

To reinstall the old oof, simply drag and drop it from your Downloads folder into the current Sounds folder. Windows warns you that two of the files in this folder have the exact same name, even though this is intentional. Replacing the previous “ouch” with the new “ouch” restores the “ouch” in current versions of the game. Keep in mind that every new Roblox update will reinstall the new death sound, which means you’ll have to manually replace this file every time.
