I mostly play 1.6, source occasionally and i noticed in source when u silence your m4 the crosshair doesn't get bigger like it does in 1.6 showing that it gets less accurate, in source does the silencer effect accuracy still in source?

    Is it really true? Or is it a myth that people say. Some people say with silencer it makes it more accruate. Or does the silencer just make it quite so no one can here them?!!?

    Some people own w/ the silencer.
    Some don't.
    Some people think it makes it inaccurate.
    Some people get more accurate.

    Most of this recoil and accuracy stuff is almost completely in your head. If you think it, it is.

    From my experience, the silencer gives better control at close-range, but for more damage and more accuracy, take it off.

    absolutly NOT ,

    a silencer is really called a supreser , it drops the muzzel velocity and recoil , it does make it less loud but the silencer does NOT affect acuracy its jsut the one shooting the gun. in a real rifle the silencer / suppresser does not accauly touch the bullet , the silencer is screwed on the end of the barrel and does not accauly guild the bullet. on guns that have a perminate silencer yes it does touch the bullet and guids it but accuracy isnt affect

    im talking about real life not in-game

    i have no idea about it ingame

    I used to place the silencer on all the time. I like the muffled sound better. As for accuracy, I don't think there is a severe difference from one to the other.

    I don't think there is a point to silencing your M4, people are still going to hear it, and they'll notice the bullets hitting them in the ass.

    FACT

    welll in real life u see a Silencer has to lower the bullet to less then the sound barryer witch is like 786 or 800 somthing like that.

    now a normal m4 for example shoot near or more than 2600 to 3000 mph i foget but anyway the faster the bullet goes the more damage so basicly the silancer would do less .. ah duh

    my uncle tought me a ton about silencers , he makes em.... see u can live from a silenced gun shot but ull bleed slower but harder now with a unsilenced oh it ahh gore its just not pretty LOL

    Ok well for exapmle u might see that a normal silencer in css or cs has no holes ... this totally innnaccccurate to my noalage u need those holes (porting)to release the gases out for your berrel and the bullet to slow WAY THE FUCK DOWN.
    so there is a puff of smoke WHY u say? well b/c the mussle flash is gone b/c your bullet slow so much and the porting shot out into litle porting that go into little porting that leads out witch kills the flame and makes smoke :D

    ahhh
    if a bullet or berral is mishapen it can do very much damage to the silencer and leave marks on your bullet where investigater can trase it to your gun LOL

    ahUM i revolver is one of the oddees silencers ever, its like a 2 peice b/c there is a gap betweein the berral and the holesthere has to be a spacer (ie: peice 1)makeing the mussle flash go into the silencer and do all that mumbo jumbo. oh revolver silencers ARE EXTREMELY HARD TO MAKE AND FIND

    the biggest snipper silencer is 4 and 1/2 feet long LOL i think its either for the barret awp or some old ass gun

    In the real world... silancer makes the gun more accurate... it is just an extension of the barrel. the longer the barrel, the more accurate... but in the game it is less acurate... unless you are used to the silencer...

    I have done serious testing, i made a vid too, cant find it but I did.

    It in fact makes it less accurate in short bursts. But while spraying the bullets tend to move to the middle if you make a circular motion to the right. Like firing in a circle counter clockwise while spraying witht he silencer is more accurate then without.

    In CS:S, the silencer makes the M4 less accurate and slightly less powerful.

    I think that some people would say that it is more accurate when silenced, because they use the silencer more and are just used to having it on. :)

    Usually when I have the silencer on it usually takes 2 shots in the head to get a headshot (if my opponent has about 90-100 hp), and 1 shot in the head when the silencer is off.

    Silencer on makes it a little bit weaker and it's easier to spray becuase less recoil, it's also better for close range. Long range don't use silencer.

    Basically, I love to use the silencer cuz i think its cool ya know? It sounds like the gun is more accurate but without the silencer, its loudness makes me feel like its very very powerful! I'm just afraid if silencers make the guns accuracy smaller....:(

    In CS:S if you silence the m4, it will become less accurate and will take less damage out then if it were silenced. The pro to having a silencer is you can sneak up on people because they cannot hear your gun shots unless you are fairly close to them.

    Either way, if you want to know the truth, the reason it seems more powerful off is because it's louder, the physics in Source are better but silencer on or off makes no difference in accuracy from any range. It's all about the short controlled bursts with or without silencer, from long range or short.

    It gets less accurate in CS1.6 anyhow... Try to shoot on a wall from a long distance and aim at the same place, Shoot about 15 shots with and without the silencer and look at the bullet holes.
