CODEX Entry: BrakkCodexbw
Simple but powerful. The semi-automatic Brakk hand cannon delivers a lot of punch in a small package.

The Brakk is a small-scale shotgun type sidearm with high damage and good reload rate but with high recoil and low magazine size. It was initially an award for completing enough invasions during The Gradivus Dilemma. It has since been made a reward for defeating The Grustrag Three and now builds like so:

Weapon Loadouts

Main article: Category:Brakk Build

See the user build section for builds using this weapon.

Notes

  • During the Gradivus Dilemma, if you have supported the Grineer more than the Corpus, this gun will come with an inventory slot and an Orokin Catalyst. If the Corpus was supported, this will be rewarded as a Blueprint instead, meaning a lack of the inventory slot and Orokin Catalyst.
  • When comparing pellet count, the Brakk is superior compared to the Strun (and a slight to its Wraith version), as the pistol has a very fast reload speed along with its initial damage mod Hornet Strike can benefit the Brakk easily through its V polarity, making the Brakk a good alternative to the Strun Wraith.
  • Update 11.2.1 nerfed the Brakk in various areas.
    • Damage falloff was added and pellet spread was slightly increased, reducing its effective range.
    • Damage was slightly slanted towards Impact damage, making it slightly less effective against the Infested and the Grineer.
  • The damage listed is actually a combination of all the pellets' damage values. The actual damage per pellet, barring damage falloff, is 6.7 impact, 3.7 puncture, and 4.5 slash.
    • Fires 10 pellets, each dealing varying physical damage for a total of 150 damage.

Tips

  • The Brakk is typically considered to be an upgraded Grineer version of the Bronco series with high critical chance, greater damage potential, more pellets per shot, and a larger magazine size. In addition, it also has Polarity slots of Bar and V to accommodate powerful builds sooner.
  • The Brakk's critical and status stats make it viable for critical and/or proc-oriented builds.
    • Radiation damage is particularly effective, making the Brakk a decent substitute for Nyx's Chaos.
  • A shotgun in the secondary weapon slot allows for several interesting weapon combinations, particularly primary weapons that are inconvenient/risky to use in close quarters (Ogris, Penta, Sniper Rifles and Bows).

Trivia

  • The Brakk is a revolver-style pistol using buckshot rounds - a small scale shotgun.
    • The Brakk's cylinder rotates every time after it fires. Curiously the player can fire the Brakk very rapidly before the cylinder even finishes rotating.
  • The Brakk appears to have a custom reload animation, but oddly, the Warframe appears to insert an object into the pistol grip. Its reload sound is similar to that of a Bronco.
  • The Corpus counterpart for the The Gradivus Dilemma is the Detron. Had the Corpus won the Dilemma the Detron would have been rewarded instead.
  • General Sargas Ruk gives this weapon to those who supported him and the Grineer in the Gradivus Dilemma with a message: "The way you fight, we cannot grow this in a test tube. You are a true warrior. I need more warriors like you. Continue to fight for me, there is more where this came from."
    • It would seem that Sargas Ruk has grown an attachment to the Tenno who supported him. Speculations of Sargas Ruk's relationships rises at this point.
  • The gun is described as a "semi-auto handcannon" of Grineer design. Colloquially, a "hand cannon" often refers to an extremely powerful pistol chambered for a high caliber cartridge such as .50 S&W Magnum or .50 Action Express.
  • The word "Brakk" may be translated from Grineer to English as "Break", due to its sustained ability to deliver powerful blasts against its targets.
