Catch zombies unaware once again with stealthy headshots.

This mod decreases the amount of damage suppressors take by 90% and decreases the audible range of ammunition shot through a suppressor based on the size (.22LR being the quietest). This makes suppressors quite useful again -especially in high zombie count servers, and especially at night. Additionally, this mod decreases the size of suppressors in your inventory. Finally, this mod makes the improvised suppressor slightly more durable and allows it to be repaired using a half a roll of duct tape.

I like the new noise system in DayZ but I also like the way some things were in the past. Like storage containers, for instance. I've made a mod that bring back the old storage containers that held 1 more row of space than they took up in your inventory. I've also added logic to it to prevent nesting, which is the reason they were changed in the first place. It's called UsefulContainers, check it out.


In order for suppressors to be effective in DayZ you must do these things

-Don't rapid fire, even when suppressed. This will add several sound events to sound area
-If you do have to fire multiple times, do it while moving. This will make your sound area shift into "fresh" terrain
-Keep your suppressors in good condition. A ruined suppressor might as well be no suppressor


To install server side:
-Download the mod to the root directory of your server
-Copy the key file from the keys directory to your server's keys directory
-Add this mod to your launch parameters

To install client side using DayZ launcher:
-Subscribe to the mod
-Open DayZ launcher and check mark the mod in the mods list
-Add the mod's folder name to the end of your mod string

@bri5150 - As of this post it is still working. Tested with it on and off and appears to still suppress sound. I gave up testing how long it would last after when I tripled the amount of bullets that the silencer broke without mod.

Does this still work with the 1.16 update?

Will this mod allow the attachment of a suppressor to the ruger 10/22??

@Novadose does this work by altering the effect of specific suppressors, or does it apply to suppressors that would be added to the game via other mods?

Improvised suppressor is still being ruined in 1-2 shots

The mod does not work on 1.09. I checked a pistol suppressor on UMP45, with and without mod it is enough for 200 shots.

@Novadose thanks for the response, I appreciate it. Would there be no way to modify your file structure to have a config file somewhere where we could modify the values, or where we could add new suppressors from other mods (the Mass' 308 Suppressor comes to mind)?

I think it would increase the re-usability of your mod tremendously if server admins had that level of control over the mod.

But the mod is great even as it is. I appreciate it. Great work!

@Highzung I'll look into it. With suppressor HP values changed in vanilla recently I will probably do that. @Battlefate unfortunately there is no way to adjust via settings. @Знахарь no repacks. @Smok working fine on 1.09, no need to update

1.09 ready to update ?

Can I add your mod to my server mod?
