Suppressors seem to be just as loud as when you're only using the flash hider. I've tested it, and it seems to me that un-suppressed and suppressed M4A1,sounds the same.
- Legacy ID
- Equip M4A1
- Shoot a couple of rounds - loud sound
- Attach suppressor
- Shoot a couple of rounds - Still loud.
My suppressor is in the "orange" condition, "badly damaged". That might be the issue.
What are you expecting the suppressor to do? make the gun silent?
Suppressors work by reducing the sound created by firing a bullet so that it cannot be heard at longer distances. They also slow the velocity of bullets to prevent super sonic cracks.
Silencers reduce draw of zombies. suppressors in real life don't make a gun of high caliber completely silent only reduces velocity. This isn't Call Of Duty. Welcome to the real world kids.
-Confirmed and tested with pristine 556 suppressor.
-Removed and fired M4 without suppressor as a control in each test.
-Tested with 3x player at various distances (roughly): 50 meters, 100m, 200m.
-Tested while shooting towards and away from players.
-Tested while used inside various buildings.
-Tested using various magazine sizes: 10, 20, 30(both types), 40, and 60 coupled.
RESULTS: ~Not Working~ Doesn't function in any way shape or form, currently just a gun aesthetic.
I sincerely hope not, SD ammo was by far one of the most annoying oversights of ARMA/DayZ mod. To create a game on a "realistic" simulation engine and then insinuate that only subsonic ammunition could be used through a suppressor ... developers, if you're reading this, please don't repeat the mistake.
And suppressors in the game do not affect flash from my testing.
We found a pristine supressor and I'm pretty sure it did work. I can confirm that the badly damaged supressors definatly do not work as i have tried my self. Could be one of those lamp bugs once u change server the supressor doesnt work...
Would like to vote down because of reporting a damaged silencer
wheras good discusion undearneath
Accolyte said, "Hey guys,
this is a known issue. The sounds are still a work in progress and aren't functioning properly.
Thank you for your reports though" The sounds are constantly are being worked on.
I can confirm silences DO NOT STOP ZOMBIES COMING TO YOU AT ALL i have killed over 60 plus zombies in about 20 to 30 mins with a suppressor on going through the map they do not work at all and it is very annoying
HAHAHAHAAHAHAHA IT'LL NEVER GET FIXED!! MY PLAN WILL SUCCEED AND I WILL NUKE CHERNARUS WITH MY FISTS OND DAY WHEN THE GAME SUPPORTS STEAM WORKSHOP AND CAPS ARE KEWL!!
jk. I hope the sounds get updated some day in the near-future
