I was just wondering, am I the only one who thinks that the supressors fail to reasonably silence most guns on this game. Of course on your end your going to hear a supressed shot fairly well. But to an enemy 30 to 100 yards away, it shouldn't sound the same to him. In fact depending on the distance and proximity, he shouldn't hear any thing but the bullet wizzing by. Its almost just as loud for most guns as if you didn't add one at all. I think the volume on supressed weapon fire should definately be lowered and adjust for enemies depending on there proximity. Since your demenishing power, you should at least gain true silent gun fire. Anyone else agree?

The suppressors silence the gunfire enough for me, I roll with one on every gun. Plus, you are not displayed on the mini-map. I've barely not used a suppressor in the retail game but I remember the beta there was a huge difference as I played without a suppressor for quite awhile as I thought you had to unlock mods as you leveled, I didn't realize right away that you could just buy whatever mods you wanted with those points you earned.
The subject of your forum topic is asking 2 different things.
FIRST AND FOREMOST........a SUPRESSOR does not and is not meant to SILENCE. It's purpose is to suppress the sound of a bullet exiting the barrel. So that it DOESN'T sound like a weapon is being fired. It is not meant to quiet the sound, but to change it's sound. They were first called "hush puppies" when they were developed in Vietnam.
So no, they don't silence and they aren't meant to silence.
Point is, it's working as designed.

Send me a message with "Ghost Recon" or "GR:FS" in it so I know what you want.
isnt this future soldier? Just saying if we can have grenades that detect peoples movements then surely weapons that are silent arent out of the question
Back to the original question I think they work fine as they are
I'm serious about this, its real subtle and most people probably haven't notice it yet. But next tim your snipe some on w/ a suppressed weapon from a distance, check out how little time passes be for you're tracked down.
