The MP5 is the only gun I know of that has a silencer.

To my knowledge, This (http://farcry.ubi.com/weapons.php) is the official guide. It makes no mention of the Falcon having a silencer. Where did you see this info?

Interesting.

Maybe this site dates back to olden times.

Anyone else care to shed light on this?

If you get into the .lua files, you will see there was a lot never implemented into the game in the final cut. Whether it was due to time constraints or the inability to resolve bugs is anyone's guess.

These include such things as silenced weapons, advanced camera system, icons for melee attacks and a Linux server in the .dds files, and breakable objects on mp maps.

Things like this are remenants left from the development process. The reference to something that got cut from the final version on the UK website is just an oversight. Pretty inexcuseable after almost two years.

In those .lua files you will also see a lot of remarks and notes about what to fix, and what to remove, etc, that were left in.
Here's something I've never heard Val say that are in her .lua files:

PLEA_HELP = function( self, entity,sender )
local rnd = random(1,10);
if (rnd>8) then
Hud:AddMessage("VALERIE: Bust me outta here, you STUD! ");
elseif (rnd>6) then
Hud:AddMessage("VALERIE: I have a cookie here for the one who frees me ");
elseif (rnd>4) then
Hud:AddMessage("VALERIE: TAKE ME, TAKE ME AS SOON AS YOU FREE ME!! ");
elseif (rnd>2) then
Hud:AddMessage("VALERIE: There is a proximity trigger somewhere, FIND IT! ");
else
Hud:AddMessage("VALERIE: Rescue me darling ");
end

Probably good that these voicings never made it. Tough to sell Val as a hard nosed agent with an itchy trigger finger with sexist remarks like that. Some programmer must have had a long night!

Thought I would throw this in.
Can't say where it is from for fear of the mods sending me a virus.

Actually on the topic of looking in the lua's the thing I find funiest are the voice sections that sound like it might have been the programers just using the standard lines as placeholders till they got an actor in...

Their performance? Lets say its just as well they are gods gift at programming http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif
