These weapons are acquired as favors from Cassandra as you grant territory and accrue loyalty, though they can be purchased normally later in the game
Silenced M1N8 - Not bad, but for a silenced weapon you really want the first shot to be lethal. Ditch this for a silenced pistol at the first opportunity.
Hartmann AT-40 - A single-fire rocket launcher isn't much use in a game without tanks or giant robots, but if you really want to kill an enforcer from a distance, and don't have the patience for a sniper rifle.... One minor bonus- you're usually so far away from the point of impact that people don't even call the police on you.
