: I don't post here often, but I was just in the shower thinking to myself
: about the Flechette. This has probably been covered before, but has anyone
: considered that the Flechette has a suppressor attached to it in the game?
: The sound it makes is quiet, the sort of sound you would expect out of the
: action clinking together rather than the expansion of the gas. Also, it
: does have that large black tubular device that cxovers everything from the
: sights on. And lastly it doesn't make a muzzle flash (at least, I think, I
: don't have the game on hand to check).
: Again it became pretty apparent to me that the Flechette is silenced a moment
: ago, and chances are people have always assumed that. Maybe i'm just a
: little slow :). Anyway, what are your thoughts?
The shape is all wrong for flash suppression. For such a thing you would need holes along shaft. As for a silencer, it could have the correct diemenions inside, but the outside shape would tend to just cause a more akward muted sound. I have not seen a combined suppressor in a *long time* because of how illegal they are, but am pretty sure it does not look like the flechette.
