To learn more about why "oof" was removed and how you can re-add it to Roblox, continue reading below.

Everything we know about "oof" in Roblox

How do I re-add 'oof'?

Before we begin, it's important to mention that following along with these steps and completing this tutorial won't add the "oof" sound back for everyone on Roblox—it only re-adds the sound to your individual Roblox application. Meaning that at the end of these steps, only you, and anyone else who follows along with them, will have access to the "oof" sound again.

Once you've understood this limitation, download the original "oof" sound and move it from your downloads folder to your desktop. Doing so will make it easier to use later on.

Getting "oof" on mobile

At the time of this article's publication, it's unknown if the old "oof" sound can be added to mobile versions of Roblox. Typically, mobile applications are unable to be modified by users, so it's likely that the "oof" sound is unchangeable.

Why was "oof" removed?

In short, the "oof" sound was removed and replaced due to licensing issues. On July 26, 2022, Roblox tweeted that the removal came after a multitude of these issues were brought to the company's attention, and that, to combat these issues, the sound was to be removed and replaced with a new, Roblox-owned version. For a more in-depth look at why "oof" was removed, check out our full article.

Will Roblox ever bring "oof" back?

Unfortunately, the answer to this question is likely no, Roblox will never bring the "oof" sound back platform-wide. Instead, players wanting this sound can follow the steps above to add it to their Roblox application individually, and developers can purchase a Roblox sound effects bundle from the original "oof" creator, Tommy Tallarico.
