Actually, those would be added to the vehicle, not a weapon. Kinda makes
them useless indoors ;).

I agree, but one could argue.
Silenced Weapon
If the alarm on a Challenge is triggered, and the shadowrunning team
defeats the Challenge using only Silenced Weapons, the team may continue
the shadowrun as though the alarm was never triggered.
The bow was the only *weapon* used, the rest came from a vehicle with
accessories. I suppose they could change that to read something about only
Silenced Gear, but that presents even more problems.

P.S. - I did warn you that these 'ideas and concepts are not grounded in
common-sense or reality.' They are simply problematic rules interpretations.
