A suppressor is a muzzle weapon mod in Fallout 4.

Effects

The suppressor decreases the noise emitted from firing a weapon in Fallout 4, which decreases the chances of detection by nearby NPC characters. For some weapons, such as the 10mm pistol, this decreases the AP cost when used in V.A.T.S.

One drawback of suppressors is that they greatly reduce the range of projectile weapons, by 30 points. They do, however, slightly increase accuracy while considerably decreasing recoil.

Note that suppressed weapons in Fallout 4 are not completely silent, as nearby enemies will be partially alerted and go into Caution mode if they hear the suppressed gunfire (or see someone get shot). Repeated shots with the suppressed weapon will cause enemies to eventually start blind-firing in the general direction of wherever the player character fired the weapon, though repositioning can confuse them.

Notes

  • The graphic used for the pipe guns is an automotive oil filter, a crude form of a functional suppressor.
  • The suppressor for the assault rifle reads "CAL .50" despite the weapon's 5.56mm chambering.
  • The suppressor for the radium rifle, combat rifle and combat shotgun appears to be a suppressor for 12 gauge shotguns, despite the differing weapon calibers. The suppressor reads in engraved text "MODEL 12GS" and "#00000426-012 12ga Only" on the body of the suppressor.
