"Reduces horizontal recoil drifting while firing by dispersing muzzle gas to the top. Trade off in slightly increased vertical recoil climb." - In-game Description

The compensator is a barrel attachment for all weapons except AS VAL, ,Groza-4, Honey Badger, MP5SD, Dragunov SVU, VSS Vintorez, and AWS. It is unlocked at 120 kills with any weapon except the aforementioned ones or with credits (CR).


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 AK-47, or to mitigate the downsides of other attachments, as is the case with the Folding Grip.

Note that the compensator will NOT act like a suppressor and hide muzzle flash.


  • As a way of differentiating from the Muzzle Brake, the compensator releases a weapon's muzzle flash above and below the barrel of the weapon.
