The Suppressor is more effective against Jackal Snipers and shield-less Rangers, than Jackals with shields. The Suppressor's low accuracy and low damage to shields makes to difficult to combat a shield-wielding Jackal.
It is beneficial to carry a plasma pistol when using a Suppressor. This allows the player to eliminate the shield of an enemy, then kill them with the Suppressor.
The Suppressor works as a good secondary weapon. After the player's primary weapon requires reloading amidst a firefight, switching to the Suppressor allows them to eliminate already damaged players with ease.
When using the Suppressor, equip the Dexterity support upgrade to speed up the reloading time of the weapon.
Use the Suppressor on smaller, close-quarter maps only. It is very inefficient at long ranges.
Active camouflage can be used to get close to an enemy, then eliminate them with the Suppressor.
Firing in short, controlled bursts can slightly extend the effective range of the weapon, though this is ill-advised. Getting close to the enemy and then firing full-trigger is much more effective, as it does not prematurely reveal the player's position. Most preferably, a longer-ranged weapon should be carried alongside the Suppressor.
An overshield or Damage Boost gives the player higher chances of success when engaging multiple players at once in close-quarters.
Stealth is very advantageous, allowing Suppressor-wielding players to get the jump on others before they have a chance to fight back.
Thanks to the smart scope upgrade and the addition of a Needler-like tracking ability, the Suppressor can now function as a mid-ranged weapon. However, its rate of fire (even when fully spooled up) is slow, and the time to kill is much longer than any of the other mid-range auto weapons.
Use the Suppressor as you would a Needler; acquire your target and let the bolts do the work for you.
Don't be afraid to smart scope; the increase in range is enough to net you a kill you might otherwise have missed.
Warzone features two variations; the Song of Peace (a straight upgrade to fire rate, ammo size, and reload speed) and the Razor's Edge (which operates similiarly to a Needler, including the supercombine ability).
