Brakk 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.
|Barrel||Shik Tal||25%||~ 4 Kills||24 ± 8 Kills|
|Receiver||Leekter||25%||~ 4 Kills||24 ± 8 Kills|
|Blueprint||Vem Tabook||12.50%||~ 8 Kills||51 ± 17 Kills|
All drop rates data is obtained from DE's official drop tables.
See Mission Rewards#Standard Missions for definitions on reward table rotations.
Drop chances are rounded to two decimal places, following the official drop tables repository.
Expected means a player can expect to obtain at least one of a drop every N attempts on average.
Nearly Guaranteed refers to the total number of attempts a player needs to obtain a 1 in 10^2,3, and 4 probability not to have recieved a single drop (99%, 99.9%, and 99.99% probability to have received at least one drop).
The combined probability of multiple drops is
1 - ((1-A%) * (1-B%) * ...) (add drops in same rotation)

- Brakk parts including the blueprint are not tradable.
- 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.
- The Brakk, when modded with only a maxed , 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.
- 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 ( , , Sniper Rifles and Bows).
These are based on opinions and may not be true. These should be viewed as advice unless proven undoubtedly true. Check comments for confirmation. Results may vary.
- When trying to actively acquire the Brakk, first check your profile to see if you have a Grustrag Three mark — You should be able to see it in your profile on the bottom right under: "Marked for Death by:". If you do not, play 5 consecutive missions of a Grineer vs Corpus Invasion siding with the Corpus (fighting Grineer). After you have completed the missions, you will receive a message from Councilor Vay Hek notifying you of being marked.
- Once marked: Play Lex, Ceres – recommended since it has both Orokin Cells and is a Grineer mission – for 5 minutes exactly, then extract. The Grustrag Three do not spawn past 5 minutes. Feel free to get Orokin Cells by roaming the map waiting for the timer to run out, which you can check by holding tab for mission time. Having multiple party members with the Grustrag Three mark improves chances; although, everyone should be able to get the loot even if only one person has a mark.
- The Grustrag Three will spawn after enough runs. Use ' ability for a better chance at getting the part you want. Dying can fail the mission unless you have a party member who is also marked. In which case, you will have 50% less damage against Grineer and your party member can still fight the Three. If the mark is consumed, do 5 more Grineer vs Corpus Invasions siding with Corpus until marked again. This can be doing the same mission from 3/3 to 8/3 supporting Corpus and so on.[Unconfirmed: 's Pilfering Swarm ability may improve chances of acquiring Brakk parts.]
- General Sargas Ruk gives this weapon to those who supported him and the Grineer in The Gradivus Dilemma with the following message:
- If the player chose to support Alad V in The Gradivus Dilemma, the Lotus gifted them a Brakk blueprint instead. The blueprint uses entirely different resources to build the weapon, which is the following:
|Time: 24 hrs|
|Market Price: N/A||Blueprints Price: N/A|
- The Corpus counterpart for The Gradivus Dilemma is the . Had the Corpus won the Dilemma the Detron would have been rewarded instead.
- 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 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.
