* '''Zig Zagged''': Alex shoots a mook with a silenced gun, it makes a realistic sound, and some mooks in the next room recognise it and rush in to capture him. When escaping, eh steals one of their silenced guns, which only makes a *fwip* sound when he shoots them all.

* '''Reconstructed''': Alex only uses it when he needs to make absolutely sure the shot isn't heard, and makes sure to get close enough that the accuracy and range issues aren't as much of an issue.

* '''Deconstructed''': Alex's silencer does silence the weapon... but in order to make it silent, the silencer is impractically large and heavy, and reduce the range and accuracy of the weapon significantly.

Alex, knowing that his gun has a HollywoodSilencer, mows down mooks without risking it still being overheard even as a simple loud noise.
