Supressed Weapons actually serving a purpose

I think that when a weapon is suppressed, if an enemy isn't within a certain distance (10 feet/2.5 meters) they will not hear the shot unless you hit them/hit an object near them.

This would make alot of Tasks much more feasible (i.e. Kill the Stalker named Fiend.) and would also add alot more realism.

Because how does everyone/anyone know I'm shooting when I fire a silenced pistol round into the air?

Also, I think that if you stab someone in the back or get a 1 hit kill with any object that doesn't make noise, it shouldn't alert people nearby. (Unless they can actually see you.)

Because real supressers actualy make a fair bit of noise, much less then an unsupressed round, but, still loud enough to hear for some distance in the right environment. Like, say the near silence of an open field?

In this STALKER's fairly accurate. The silencer behaves properly for what it is and actualy makes stealth much more viable.

Also that whine from your NV can (in theory) be heard by hostiles, though I'm not sure if I've ever seen this happen or not.

Suppressed weapons aren't silent. If you're within 100m, or even further away in some cases (granted you're on open, flat terrain), you WILL hear the shot. The advantage of suppressed weapons is that it is virtually impossible to distinguish the direction from which the shot was taken.


NV was mentioned in the post previous to mine...

Has anyone else noticed that the "good" (purple) NV instantly alerts enemies in the area to your exact location, even through walls and solid objects? Or am I just having a fluke?

Sorry for the thread derailment...

Exactly. Also an advantage of a suppressed weapon is that the report sounds like something other than a gunshot.

I think the silenced guns work pretty well in this game.

As others have mentioned, suppressors are quietER, not quiet. However, the biggest advantage of a suppressor isn't present in the game: you can hear. Anyone who has ever experienced a gunshot without hearing protection knows what I mean. Besides preserving your ears for the long term, a suppressor allows you to hear your opponents, instead of a ring-tone.

Suppressors main function is to limit noise, and when fired they do not sound like a gun shot. Just because someone hears a noise, doesn't mean they instantly can identify it. Haven't you ever been walking along and heard a noise, but had no idea what it was?

Having fired multiple firearms with suppressors mounted on them, I've noticed that the sound is greatly reduced, as well as the flash, and most people would not be able to recognize it as a gunshot.

Also, the smaller caliber of firearm, the less noise it makes due to the channeling of the superheated gas and lower muzzle velocity when using a silencer.

What I'm saying in this post is the way NPC's respond to sound needs to be changed.

Not everyone in the Zone is ex-special forces and can instantly identify a suppressor when they hear one.

This is completely wrong. I used to fire a Beretta 92fs with a suppressor almost everyday during my range time. You could barely hear it when you were 50 feet away, let alone 300.

Also, I use to shoot a .223 SPR with a silencer. And that gun was hard to hear even when you were the one shooting it.

My only experience with suppressors is with .338 Lapua rifles, so that might explain a bit. It was loud enough to create a pretty decent echo, but certainly wasn't deafening. I also wasn't down range from them, so the distance on that post was a SWAG

For a weapon to work properly with a suppressor, it needs to have vents and be properly mounted for the gun. But it is true, some firearms will still be extremely loud even when mounted properly with a suppressor.

But still, the point of this thread was to make NPC's respond properly to sound.
