The Suppressor, or silencer, is a device attached to the muzzle of a firearm to deafen its firing sound and suppress its muzzle flash; it also limits the recoil of the gun. It is used on some weapons in the GTA series but comes standard on them and cannot be removed. However, in GTA V, the suppressor can be used as an optional attachment for most weapons.

Grand Theft Auto 2

The silencer first appeared in Grand Theft Auto 2 on the Silenced Machine Gun. The silencer's only purpose is to make pedestrians and cops oblivious to to the gunfire.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the suppressor appears on the PSG1, though it serves no purpose other than aesthetics.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas the silencer appeared on the Silenced 9mm. It serves the purpose of stealth, as firing the silenced 9mm will not alarm any pedestrians, unless the pistol is pointed directly at them, nor will it attain you a wanted level, unless fired directly near a police officer.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories the silencer appears on the Mac 10, though it serves no purpose other than to make pedestrians and cops oblivious to gunfire.

Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony

The suppressor makes appearance again in Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony, this time on the Assault SMG. The suppressor serves no purpose other than to suppress the muzzle flash of the weapon.

Grand Theft Auto V & Grand Theft Auto Online

The suppressor is an attachment in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online that can be mounted on several weapons:

When equipped, the attachment dampens the firing sound and suppresses the muzzle flash of the weapon, making it able to perform stealth kills, unless there are witnesses that will alarm the police.
