The chart below displays how the speed of a projectile slows down over distance in meters per second.
The distance the weapon selected crosses the white dotted line is the distance a weapon crack sound cannot be heard by the player you're shooting at.
It can no longer be heard by them because the weapon/ammo becomes subsonic under the white dotted line, and subsonic projectiles make no weapon crack sound.

The DayZ ballistics system processes the simulation of supersonic cracks to occur when a projectile is travelling faster than the speed of sound, which is around 344 meters per second(m/s). However, these supersonic projectiles lose speed due to air friction and become subsonic eventually.
While subsonic, a projectile will not carry the additional sound of a miniature sonic boom, otherwise known as a weapon crack or weapon snap. Instead, the projectile will only make a wizzing sound as it passes through the air at the target you're aiming it, making it much harder to detect where you are shooting from.
This chart was created to allow players to view the distances projectiles will no longer make a weapon crack/snap in DayZ to help them remain as stealthy as possbile when shooting targets at a distance. It was also created to explain why these loud gun cracks occur in the first place.

WOBO Tools is a website dedicated to helping players learn about online games such as DayZ using videos, tips and tools.
WOBO mostly covers survival games like DayZ due to their indepth game mechanics that may require external resources, such as a website about learning survival games, to fully understand the game.
