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 at least 100 missions supporting the Grineer invasions during The Gradivus Dilemma. After the event, a blueprint was handed out to players who supported the Corpus by running at least 100 invasions on their side, as compensation. It has since been made a reward for defeating The Grustrag Three.

CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon primarily deals Impact b Impact damage.

Advantages:

  • High Damage:
  • Good ammo efficiency.
  • High rate of fire.
  • Fast reload speed.
  • High pellet count.

Disadvantages:

  • High Recoil.
  • Relatively small magazine size.
  • Ineffective on medium and long range due to damage falloff and intense spread.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

NotesEdit

  • The Brakk's infamously high DPS can be attributed to its very high fire rate. Due to its semi-auto trigger it may be impossible to reach its maximum fire rate without alternative fire bindings.
  • 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 and Hornet Strike can benefit the Brakk easily through its Madurai Pol polarity, making the Brakk a good alternative to the Strun Wraith, especially since Hornet Strike reaches a maximum of +220% damage while Point Blank only reaches +90%.
  • 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 b 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 6.75 impact, 3.75 puncture, and 4.5 slash.
    • Fires 10 pellets, each dealing varying physical damage for a total of 150 damage.
  • 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 Naramon Pol and Madurai Pol Polarity slots, allowing it to accommodate powerful mods sooner.

TipsEdit

  • The Brakk, when modded with only a capped Lethal Torrent, fires faster than it is possible to click with a mouse. Binding to mousewheel down or another alternative will allow the weapon to deal maximum DPS.
  • The Brakk's critical and status stats make it viable for critical and/or proc-oriented builds.
    • High fire rate allows for fast application of statuses, such as Blast b Blast or Radiation b Radiation.
  • 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).

TriviaEdit

  • 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.
  • If the Tenno chose to support Alad V in The Gradivus Dilemma instead, the Lotus will hand over a blueprint of Brakk to them to compensate instead. The blueprint uses an entirely different ingredients to build the weapon, which is the following:

  • 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.
  • The gun is described as a "semi-auto handcannon" of Grineer design. Colloquially, a "hand cannon" often refers to an extremely powerful handgun chambered for a high caliber cartridge such as .500 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.
