Suppressor damage drop

I still didn't find the data so we had to test it in-game. (Thanks Aenonar)
Note that the following might not be 100% accurate.

Equipping suppressor DOES affect the damage on some weapons.
Carbines, sniper rifles, PDWs and pistols stay the same.

For assault rifles and LMGs minimum damage is reduced 15% by equipping suppressor.

17 -> 14.45
20 -> 17

The damage drop off start and end distances stay the same as well as maximum damage.

Re: Suppressor damage drop

Thank you for doing this!

Do you know if damage curve is the same as unsuppressed? I.e. does it drop just as fast, only taking in the lower min damage or is it yet even faster?

(Aenonar :P Though haven't met anyone that gets it right the first time, let alone the first 10 times ;o Apparently very hard name to read and remember :>)

Yup, the min and max range is the same, and just the min damage is reduced.. Not sure about the curve though, seemed to have pretty big effect even at medium-close range...

Re: Suppressor damage drop

Yeah, this alone seems rather mild compared to what my experiences of suppressed vs. unsuppressed are, just a hunch though.

Re: Suppressor damage drop

What about the damage from shotguns? Is it altered in this way? (Talking solely about the MK3 here.)

MK3+Suppressor+Frag Rounds is hilarious. "You won't hear me shoot BUT MY BULLETS EXPLODE!" My clan had a lot of fun messing around with this.

Back on topic, thanks for the data.

...still that accuracy boost and bonus of remaining hidden is so worth it for me

Re: Suppressor damage drop

Didn't have slugs unlocked yet, think I'll get that done today sometime.. Buck/flechette is hard to test at "max" range : /

Might be able to tickle some random enemy at long range and get them to kill me and check the kill cam..

Also unlocked the AKS-74u silencer, didn't have that at the test


Edit: Got silencer for the Jackhammer now.. Tried shooting some long range slugs.. But damn.. The accuracy is absolutely horrible :s

But I did manage to hit one guy... Though don't know where it hit but he had 48% health left on a 60 health hardcore server, as in the round did 31.2 damage. I also don't know the range, but it should have been 40 meters plus. Minimum damage at 40 meters is 34 with slugs, and if it would have hit a leg it should be 30.6 damage. Now if this is because the range was just a tiny bit less than 40 meters and the damage was reduced because of a leg hit - I don't really know for sure.

39 meters would be 34.5 and a leg hit would make it 31.05.. 60 health - 31.05 dmg = 28.95 = 48,25% health left. Perhaps that simply what happened, would need to test with someone again to make sure...


However... You don't want to use the jackhammer with slugs.. It's rubbish. You don't really want to use buckshot or flechette either since it only has 9 instead of 12 pellets. Frag is the way to go with the jackhammer. And even if the silencer would have worked, everyone will still hear the frag explosion. Though the accuracy with frags is quite horrible as well, much worse than the USAS... So... I don't really see any point in using the jackhammer at all except for looks : /

On Oman rush I can accurately hit the crane from the 2nd attacker spawn with USAS frag. No chance in hell with the jackhammer. Can't even hit a shipping container ~70 meters away with more than ~1-2 shots per extended clip :|

Re: Suppressor damage drop

When you say damage stays the same for sniper rifles, are you referring to the semi-auto's and SKS as well? Or just the bolt actions?

Re: Suppressor damage drop

I don't have a way to test it, but to me it feels like there's no difference. I've switched between the suppressor and laser sight on the SKS and I don't feel a difference. Note that I'm rarely firing it at targets beyond ~45m so I could be wrong.
