Suppressors and accuracy

For some reason on certain guns they "feel" more accurate with a suppresor attached. Any scientific reason why this may be.

At range, it could be that you're used to the low muzzle velocity, so when not using a suppressor you overcompensate drop and lead. Otherwise, no.
Why I don't use lasers:


The Green Laser Sight you should almost always turn off as it gives away your vacation.

Anyone got any ideas about what the UGL Rail on the L86 is for? (13/04 Patch notes.)

XM25 can't mount, can it? Looking forward to my Underslung Ammo box!

Is there any way for anyone that doesn't have mod powers to know what the IE on 360 thread is? I feel so left out...

Nope. Deleted so only mods can see the contents. It has some... interesting stuff there... *squints @Riesig <.< *

sorry to necro, but i thought everyone in symthic should know this!!!.... suppressor = more accurate while moving!!!

The following article is VERY BIASed towards infantry only play, since Anti-Tank rockets took it up the ass this patch.

This game is not about what should be, or what guns should behave like, it’s about, what the raw numbers are, and embracing the reality of each patch.

There are many a nerd with their calculators on Symthic doing very advanced calculations.

I am taking those peoples number-crunching and boiling it down here:

IF- you are the type of player, that ALWAYS STOPS moving AND AIMS DOWN SIGHT for all engagements, then it is a NO BRAINER- You should run Heavy Barrel and Stubby. The combined bonuses for this style of gameplay are insane now.

Some other quirky things you may not know:

Suppressors have 2 drawbacks. Lower bullet velocity (who cares) and…20% increase to bullet spread while standing still!... yes… still. You are actually MORE accurate with a suppressor, if you strafe slightly.

I suggest only bothering with suppressors when server population is low (15 or less players per team) OR, if you are a PDW whore.

If you are a Run and Gun never stop moving type player AND you AIM DOWN SIGHT and strafe shoot ALWAYS, then you are most likely not affected by this patch. Stay Ergo.

Muzzle Break- Always pointless, you should be moving your mouse to compensate for recoil anyway
(Exception-DMR’s Are great with Muzzle Break and Folding grip, since you can’t shoot fast enough for Muzzle breaks spread penalty to kick in, and Every shot is a single shot, therefore Folding Grip kicks in for every shot)

And for you crazy people out there that Never aim down sight and always run and gun, keep rocking your laser and Ergo (and suppressor)


DBV-12 AUTO SHOTTY with Full choke and Laser and Buckshot might single handedly be the best gun in game within 25 meters now. Embrace it. Shottys have sucked for over a year plus. PLUS, you get to rock the Folding Grip on it and a SUPER fast reload of 10 shells. Throw a FLIRx2 on it for longer range engagements you wouldn’t have DARED attempted in the old days with a shotty and thank me later.

LOWEST RECOIL (Vertical) Gun in game now (not counting pistol or Sniper) is:

SAR-21 (Highest is Groza-1)

LOWEST RECOIL (Horizontal) Gun in game now (not counting pistol or Sniper) is:

U-100 MK5 ! (Highest is FAMAS and SR-2)

Lowest 1st shot multiplier Gun in game now (not counting pistol or Sniper) is:

M60-e4 THE PIG BABY.. in fact, it is now the only gun with NO 1st shot Multi penalty and the LSAT comes in with a close second. Both these guns, you might want to revisit.

Gun with most kick is EASILY the CZ-3A1 (I still love its 1000 RPM though ) with a 3.0 FSM and .4 Vert recoil!.... absolutely horrid for anything other than pure run and gun no ADS 10meter or less encounters.

Suppressors – Reduce muzzle climb and increase accuracy. Reduce the weapon’s range and hip firing accuracy.
