A suppressor, sound suppressor, or sound moderator, also legally known and referred to as a silencer, is a device attached to or part of the barrel of a firearm which reduces the amount of noise and flash generated by firing the weapon. Suppressors can also be integrated into a barrel, such as the AS Val or MP5SD platforms.

The Suppressor is a weapon attachment in the Rainbow Six universe.

"Sound suppressors reduce the amount of noise produced when you fire a weapon. They only reduce the sound of weapons and never completely silence them. Two side effects of silencers are increased weapon weight and decreased damage due to special subsonic ammunition."

— In-game description

The Suppressor is a weapon attachment featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It greatly reduces the sound emitted from a weapon when fired. Due to the importance of listening to one's surroundings to determine the location of the enemy, the suppressor is extremely valuable in masking the player's location as a result. This can be useful in dispatching lone enemies in Training Grounds or multiplayer as well as destroying surveillance cameras. The largest drawback of the attachment is that it will reduce a weapon's damage by nearly 15%, requiring more shots in order to obtain a kill.
