How did Judas commit suicide? Did he hang himself? (Gospels.) Or did he fall off a cliff? (Acts.)

There is no real discrepancy between Acts and Matthew's account of the suicide. Matthew says Judas hanged himself and Acts says he fell headlong and burst asunder. 

If Judas hanged himself from a tree on a high cliff in the potter's field and the rope broke or a limb broke and he fell on rocky ground it could have resulted in the description in Acts 1:18. Judas went out and hanged himself and either his corpse rotted and fell, or the rope broke and he fell and hit sharp rocks and he burst open.
