Without watching the video I can assume that it doesn't just make the dropoff distance sooner like before

Nah, it does decrease the drop-off range. But in reality, it really only comes into play in certain mid-range situations, and even then, it's hardly a disadvantage.

Basically, anyone who's smart will put on a suppressor for their SMGs. The advantage of not showing up on radar far outweighs the minimal disadvantage of losing a tiny bit of range. Of course, most people who are half-decent have known this to be true in almost every CoD game...but still, the video shows just how much the silencer really affects (or doesn't affect) range.

It probably has something to do with the fact that damage doesn't gradually drop off anymore, but immediately falls off at a set distance.

It decreases range by 25% for SMGs. This information isn't new.

Never claimed it to be. Simply thought a video showing just the real-world (or, video-game world) effects of the suppressor would be helpful to some. Yes, I'm aware it's a 25% range decrease, but this video helps you visualize exactly what that entails when you're in an actual gunfight.

There's plenty of videos on YouTube about it already. Like this one: http://youtu.be/Kv2whG40sNc.

I run Ghost and Suppressor on everything, I hate having my opponents know where I am and since UAV's are up more than my penis it's a good perk/attachment to have.

Again, never said there wasn't. You act as if everyone on the board has most certainly seen these videos.

I didn't title this topic "New findings show the real effects of suppressors!"...I just posted a topic hoping I might be able to help out some people who aren't sure whether or not using a suppressor is worth it. You clearly already know the effects, so obviously this topic won't be of any importance to you. No need to act like it's pointless to everyone else, though.
