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



Attachment Type Barrel
Kills Required 175 (350 for Stevens DB and Sawed Off)
Note {{{Note}}}

The Muzzle Brake is a barrel attachment available to all weapons except Integrally Suppressed Weapons. It is unlocked at 175 kills on all weapons aside from the Stevens DB and Sawed Off where it is unlocked at 350 kills instead. It can also be unlocked by purchasing it using credits, of which the price is doubled for the Sawed Off and Stevens DB.


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.


Unlike the Compensator which reduces horizontal recoil and increases vertical recoil, the Muzzle Brake does the opposite by decreasing vertical recoil in exchange for increased horizontal drift. Weapons with huge vertical recoil such as the M231, AG-3 and FAL 50.00 can take a great advantage from the Muzzle Brake. The Muzzle Brake also finds purpose on some designated marksman rifles and dedicated single shot weapons that see use at longer ranges like the Dragunov SVU and Dragunov SVDS.

Similar to the Compensator, the Muzzle Brake does not act like a suppressor and cannot hide muzzle flash.
