The intended function of the suppressor 5.56 is to reduce the sound and muzzle flash produced by the weapon it is attached to when firing. As of 0.35.115188 and prior updates, the suppressor does not function as intended and thus is only cosmetic. However, it is unknown if the suppressor affects the detection range of zombies.
