What does silencer do on rifles?

Hi, i have been wondering the whole time about the function of silencer. I know that it reduces the sound of the gun but does it reduce the damage of the gun when equipped?  And does it reduce recoil of a gun? Thank you.

    Hello!

    Well silencers are meant to hide your location from the minimap if you shoot it. 
    Usually when a player fires his weapon, the minimap will show the last location of that player.
    Silencers will hide that.

    Yes, I know that silencers hide our location but is that it's only function? Because people have been saying that silencers does not reduce a rifle damage and it only reduces sound and recoil. I just want to clarify this and know if it is true or not. Thank you.

    Hi,

    Nah it doesn't really actually change any recoil. It just reduce the sound and hides yourself from the minimap. That is all.
