How exactly does a Muzzle Brake affect a Sniper Rifle

The Title is basicly all you need to know. I know that the Muzzle Brake reduces the V-Recoil, but increases the Spread. A Sniper Rifle has normaly an ADS Spread of 0. So what exactly does change when I put a Muzzle Brake on a weapon like the GOL. Thank you!

How exactly does a Muzzle Brake affect a Sniper Rifle?

  • It lowers vertical recoil that settles by the time you're ready to take the next shot anyways.
  • It increases spread increase per shot using multiplication on a weapon with 0 spread increase per shot.
  • It gives the weapon a nice looking muzzle.


Basically, it doesn't do shit.

well,if you never scope-out when using a SPB it can be used to have better sight on a target that you may miss,but it's not that huge of a buff,just use t if you like the look of it.

Just wanted to point out that muzzle break affects spread increase, not base spread. ie, how much your spread increases every shot you take. It also affects the max spread, BF4 Advanced Attachments Data | Symthic

AFAIK it doesn't really have a use. Sure, it decreases recoil and increases the spread increase/shot, but those usually reset after each shot with the bolt-action rifles. IMO just use it if you don't have the all-powerful Flash Hider unlocked.

EDIT: It could have a use with the new semi-auto SR338, but I would avoid it on that gun at all costs. The recoil isn't that bad thanks to its lower fire rate, and it's spread increase/shot is terrible, so I'd give it a miss there.

The muzzle isn't that bad on the SR338. Optimal RPM is 125 stock, 119 with MB.

It really is quite frustrating when Helen Keller sets up her LMG in the only doorway in/out of an area.

What kind of question is that? Since when is cheese ever a bad idea?

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.
