Could anyone tell me if the use of a suppressor in any way affects a gun's power or 'knock down' ability?

 

I notice applying it to a weapon doesn't seem to affect the power bar in the stats.

 

Many thanks

Many thanks

 

As Argo is based on Arma3, suppressors will reduce the power, sound and range of weapons

Hi @RoC TomHorn,

As in real life, suppressors increase slightly (up to 3%) the velocity of the bullets, so indeed, it gives more power to the weapons,
which is not displayed in the Equipement page though.
Maybe it will in a futur update.

i am sure there was a conversation about this on discord the other day and one of the devs  (i think locklear) said something like this

Hello,

 

I made some tests with MK-I EMR, AMS Scope, with/without suppressor:

 

Range AMS Scope (.mildot)
With Supressor Without Suppressor
100 m -1 -1
200 m -1 -1,5
300 m -2 -2,1
400 m -3 -3
500 m -4 -4
600 m -5 -5
700 m -6.5 -7
800 m -8 -8,5

Wow! Thanks for that flyingcoyotus......I think it's therefore safe to assume that it makes no difference to the weapon's ability whether a suppressor is used or not.

Am i the only one who thinks that suppressors should only be available in lower calibers?

I think it kinda ruins the fun of sniping when you can sit on a mountain and fire repeatedly without alerting anyone who is outside a 50m radius.

 

Feels a bit cheaty to me...
