Video games try to get you to believe some CRAZY things, especially when it comes to technology. Now what does that have to do with The Last of Us, a game set in a post apocalyptic wasteland with technology rivaling that of the early 2000s? Today, Austin is talking about their makeshift weapon upgrades. Specifically the bottle silencers. Would these things actually work or are you just making yourself bait for some Clickers? Let's find out!

  • I love it when people call something out that was addressed in the video, thereby proving that they didn't watch. As Austin pointed out, "silencer" _is_ an entirely appropriate and technically correct term to use. "Suppressor" and "muffler" are also correct. This argument is _stupid_ and only _stupid_ people are _stupid_ enough to "correct" people on it when those _stupid_ people are the ones who are wrong. Stop correcting people when you're wrong. It's _stupid._

  • Technically gunpowder doesn't explode, but just burns really, really fast. For an explosion one needs a specific ratio of fuel and oxidiser, that enables the charge to detonate and gunpowder does not have that ratio, hence it only burns really fast

  • He wants to sound scientific but he never explained bullet trajectory/accuracy. If you’re going to look at the physics of an event, you need to look more in depth to give us a full look at your “theory”....

  • Some silencers DO reduce normal High Velocity ammo to subsonic speeds through porting. See the designs used in an MP5SD or some of the custom integral Ruger MK series pistols (like the Amphibian or Sicario)

  • Something of note. Their are 2 types of suppressors out there. You have suppressors with baffles like the ones show here, and you have suppressors with rubber wipes. While baffled suppressors are by far more common, baffled suppressors are much quieter. Their main downside is that they only last around 10 to 30 shots before needing to replace those rubber wipes. The welrod is a British bolt-action WWII pistol with an integrated wipe suppressor, is often described as being pretty close to that movie pfft sound. The same is true for the knights armament xm-9, an attachment for a beretta 92 with a slide lock and wipe suppressor.

  • Something I would like to contribute: subsonic ammunition does not reduce lethality. When a bullet hits you, it isn't going to have much trouble killing you whether it's subsonic or supersonic, what it will do is lessen the chance of overpenetration. That's when a bullet goes *through* you and potentially hits an unintended target. For personal defense, it really doesn't matter, as most of those engagements are close-range. You start having a problem with subsonic ammunition at +50m. One more thing I would like to add, you don't have to have some special kind of gun to run subsonic ammunition, it's the same round, just less powder packed into it. However, to run a commercial suppressor you may need a threaded barrel which is only present on some handguns without customization. Also, subsonic ammunition would reduce the noise emitted even without a suppressor.

  • Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but couldn't you make it reusable by adding a barrel to the suppressor, or would that not work due to the baffling material (what a fun phrase) utilizing sound absorption to dampen the noise? Obviously this would affect muzzle velocity significantly and accuracy, but it could work, right?

  • Silencers were often called "Hush Puppies" during the Vietnam War because of their very practical application by NAVY SEALS for eliminating sentries, human and canine alike. Macabre for sure, yet so so cool.

  • Silencer or Suppressor doesn't really matter... It serves the same function. The terms are used interchangeably for actual weapons anyhow. "OMG THIS PISTOL HAS A SILENCER!" or "It has a noise suppressor" Both are gameplay quotes from Cartoonz who owns guns (or used to I don't know if he still has them or not). I know the second quote was from R6 and the first I only remember he was pleasantly surprised to pick up a gun that had a silencer.

  • Yes, Silencers. But hey, logically it suppresses noise, hence why people say suppressor. You don't have to be annoying about it, pull out wikipedia and look at freaking patents. Silencer or Suppressor, it all depends on the caliber as well.

  • Nothing completely silences a gun, so technically silencer is an incorrect term, but it is used by the majority of the public. The simple answer is both words can be used interchangeably - meaning the terms Silencer and Suppressor refer to the exact same thing.

  • Suppressors are called suppressors specifically because they only suppress the explosion rather than silencing them. It's a semantics thing sure but ignorance is leading to idiotic people putting in idiotic laws. Also, I appreciate that you're pointing out the reality of how suppressors work

  • 9:44 - Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's 10dB for every doubling of perceived volume (loudness), ~6dB for every doubling of sound pressure (doubling of voltage in an amp) and ~3dB for every doubling of sound intensity (acoustic power), not ~3dB for volume, therefore 180dB is just 4x louder (perceived volume-wise) than 160dB and ~100x more acoustic power (actual number is 3.0102999566dB), 100x less noise (if it were true) would make it more believable how people in movies don't hear it, imagine 0.01 (1%) of the noise a gun makes unsilenced. Just in case, here's the calculation I used for 3dB since it doesn't fit perfectly into 20 which is the difference between 180dB and 160dB: 180 - 160 = 20dB difference 20dB / 3 = 6.67 doublings of acoustic power (which is not volume) 2^6.67 = 101.59 times (since it's more accurately 3.0102999566dB, it turns out to be ~x100)

  • As a gun person, I like your description of how firearms and suppressors work, however, your stated decibel numbers are hilariously wrong. The loudest sound ever was Krakatoa, at 180dB, and could be heard 3000 miles away. Most firearms will be approximately 150-160 dB unsuppressed. Depending on the firearm, ammunition used, and silencer, this number can be reduced to 140 dB for large rifles, 125 for handguns, and even as low as 110 for subsonic 22 firearms. Note, the 110 dB is about as loud as dropping the slide on a handgun.
