"Reduces the overall weapon kick of single shot firing."
— In-game description

The Muzzle Brake is a weapon attachment featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It greatly reduces the vertical recoil and does not change a weapons horizontal recoil similar to the Compensator and Flash Hider.

The Muzzle Brake reduces the recoil of the first shot by 45%, along with a 45% reduction for the re-centering time after shots.[1]

Re-centering time refers to the time it takes for the crosshair to returned to the point at which the player was initially aiming, after the weapon has kicked up due to recoil. Regardless of how far up the recoil has kicked the gun, be it one bullet or ten, this duration is fixed. Thus, the Muzzle Break reduces this time by 45%. Re-centering only takes place after the weapon has stopped firing.

This means that the recoil is effectively halved for well-timed shots of semi-automatic fire, but the Muzzle Brake's recoil control makes it ineffective for continuous, rapid fire. These characteristics make this attachment useful for semi-automatic guns, especially those with high vertical recoil.
