In September, it was announced that Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Online would be getting some of Sam Fisher's iconic weaponry from the Splinter Cell games; this trailer is an overview of the guns in action. The game's combat designer Nickole walks viewers through the various guns, which all seem to have some sort of noise suppression to make the shooter more elusive.
