Suppressors attached to several weapons.

A suppressor, sound suppressor, or sound moderator (also incorrectly silencer), is a device attached to or part of the barrel of a firearm which reduces the amount of noise and flash generated by firing the weapon.

Battlefield 1942Edit

The suppressor is a default attachment for the Sten in the Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII expansion.

Battlefield 2Edit

Suppressors in Battlefield 2 are featured on the 92FS, MR-444, and QSZ-92 pistols available to the Special Forces and Sniper Kits.

Battlefield: Bad CompanyEdit

Suppressors in Battlefield: Bad Company are featured on all submachine guns. The VSS and SVU sniper rifles also feature suppressors.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2Edit

Suppressors in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 are featured on all firearms specific to the Engineer kit. They are also featured on the SVU and VSS sniper rifles.

Suppressors are an attachment featured in Battlefield 3 and are unlocked through kill progression for primary weapons and through leveling up for suppressed variants of secondary weapons. They allow the player to fire their weapon without appearing on the enemy minimap, and they reduce muzzle flash on a weapon. They are available on almost all firearms in the game, the exceptions being shotguns, the 93R, the .44 Magnum, and the MP412 REX[1]. The AS VAL has an integrated suppressor, unique among BF3 weapons.

Cold-loaded (subsonic) ammunition is automatically used with any weapon with an attached suppressor. Using a suppressor will decrease bullet velocity and cause the rounds to drop faster, and will cause the rounds' initial damage to drop off sooner.

Because of less propellant used in the subsonic ammunition and because of the added weight of the suppressor at the barrel's end, recoil is reduced slightly but also reduced is hip fire accuracy (as mentioned in loading screen tips).

Most sniper rifles have the same velocity as each other while using a suppressor, giving some commonality among the selection. Suppressors can also make mid-range aim more selective—for instance, the markings on the 8× rifle scope roughly correspond to 100m increments, while the markings on the PKS-07 graduate every 160m.

"Western silencer that increases stealth by hiding your muzzle report and position on the minimap. Reduces bullet velocity and increases bullet drop."
— In-game description

Suppressors return as attachments in Battlefield 4, featuring seven different variants of suppressors, depending on the national origin of each specific weapon, and the weapon class. Suppressors can be acquired for weapons of different national origins through Battlepacks.

The suppressors in the game are similar to the one in Battlefield 3, keeping the player off the mini-map when firing and reducing bullet velocity and hip-fire accuracy. Unlike Battlefield 3, however, the recoil and damage drop-off range of a weapon with a suppressor attached is unaffected.

TriviaEdit

Battlefield: Bad CompanyEdit

  • When the player first pick up a suppressed weapon, Haggard shows interest but soon says that "silencers are for sissies" as he is more of a loud kind of guy than one to show for stealth.

Battlefield 3Edit

  • In Patch 1.04, the suppressor has the most beneficial features out of all of the weapon attachments. It reduces spread, does not let player to be 'spotted' on the minimap when he fires a weapon, reduces recoil and eliminates muzzle flash, although it must be noted that neither the accuracy increase, nor the recoil reduction is anywhere near is effective as the ones provided by heavy barrel or flash suppressor respectively.
  • The AS Val is the only primary weapon to be integrally suppressed, meaning the suppressor is equipped by default.
  • The suppressor inexplicably also causes mortar and underslung weapon users to not appear on the minimap when firing their weapons, although those nearby can still hear the firing sounds.
  • Weapons use different suppressor models depending on their weapon class (e.g. an LMG would use a different suppressor model to a pistol attached with a suppressor).
