The Silencer was an attachment that reduced the sound, range and muzzle flash of a player's Firearm. The Silencer did not completely eliminate gunfire noise, but they did reduce it significantly, therefore making it impossible to hear from a long distance. The Silencer also eliminated muzzle flash, therefore making it difficult for player's to tell if a gun had been fired, especially in darkness.
Note: The silencer incurred a range penalty when used.
The Silencer could be placed onto a firearm by dragging the attachment onto any firearm which had a free attachment slot.
Note: Some firearms did not support attachments.
Below is a list of firearms that mods can be attached to:
Silencers could be obtained in two different ways:
- By crafting them;
- Finding them in Loot Crates.
- Initially, Silencers had no actual effect other than being a visual add-on.
- They are believed to have had a slightly lower drop chance than other attachment type Blueprints.
