This page will replace the current Muzzle Brake and the Compensator pages.

The Muzzle brake and the Compensator are the different names for the same devices, both terms are interchangeable. 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 a gun.

The attachment is separated into the muzzle brake and compensator. The only difference is when the dispersing holes of the device are placed vertically or horizontally.

The Compensator is a versatile attachment for weapons that you don't want a suppressor on, making it much easier to sustain accurate fire from a low recoil weapon like the MP5 or a G36.

Many agree that the Muzzle Brake is a bit more situational than its counterpart, being really only suited for high recoil weapons like the SCAR-HAMR(or really, any weapon in the SCAR family). It does not provide as much of a statistical boost as the Compensator, but there are many weapons which don't have a lot of horizontal recoil, and therefore can take the larger detriments.
