I've read a couple of threads in here, and my intention is not to start another debate thread, I'm just looking for an honest answer to a simple question - do suppressors even have a purpose?
From my experience, no matter what method/weapon you use to kill someone, you get away with one kill every 10 minutes or so, unless it's a copy or a convenience store robbery. So for example, if I killed a hooker with an UNsilenced pistol, I don't get a single wanted star. If I kill another hooker 30 seconds later, I immediately get a wanted star, even if I used a suppressor. If I punched out and curb-stomped the second hooker, I get a wanted star as well.
So it seems to me like the suppressor is completely useless. It's not the method you use to kill, but the frequency of kills that wins you a wanted star.
Anyone else have any similar experiences?
Again, forget the magic cops with their turbo boosted cars and sharp-shooting. That's just broken and really isn't up for debate, at least that's not what this thread is about. I really want to know if I should bother with a suppressor because it seems like it doesn't do jack.
I've stood on top of a tower with no one around with a sniper rifle with a suppressor and immediately got wanted stars the second I made a kill that was too soon after another one, yet if I waited up there for like 10 minutes or so (I think once the paramedics come, you're safe to kill again) and I can pop people off all day.
