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.
