Reduces horizontal recoil and drift by dispersing muzzle gases vertically, but slightly increases vertical recoil climb.
–In-game description



Attachment Type Barrel
Kills Required 120 (240 for Stevens DB and Sawed Off)
Note {{{Note}}}

The Compensator is a barrel attachment available to all weapons except Integrally Suppressed Weapons. It is unlocked at 120 kills on all weapons aside from the Stevens DB and Sawed Off where it is unlocked at 240 kills instead. It can also be bought for 220 credits (CR) for all weapons initially or 340 credits initially for the Stevens DB and Sawed Off.


The Muzzle Brake and the Compensator are the different names for devices used for the same purpose, which is to reduce recoil. This barrel attachment reduces the recoil of a weapon by dispersing gas on the muzzle of the weapon. However, muzzle brakes/compensators increase the loudness and flash of the firearm.


The Compensator, when attached to a weapon, reduces horizontal recoil at the cost of increased vertical recoil. It is useful on weapons that have very high horizontal recoil such as the AUG A3, AUG A1, or the AK47, or to mitigate the downsides of other attachments, as is the case with the Folding Grip.

Note that the Compensator does not act like a suppressor and hide muzzle flash.
