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 (not including during A Man of Few Words or The Pyrus Project).

This weapon primarily deals DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage.


  • High base damage.
  • Very high reload speed.
  • Good fire rate.
  • High pellet count.
  • Very ammo efficient.
  • Innate Naramon Pol.svg and Madurai Pol.svg polarities.


  • Second lowest base damage of all shotgun secondaries, after GrnWindUpPistol.png Kohmak/DualKohmak.png Twin Kohmak.
  • Linear damage falloff from 100% to 60% from 11m to 22m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed).
  • Wide pellet spread cone makes the weapon ineffective beyond medium range.
  • High recoil.


  • Brakk parts including the blueprint are not tradable.
  • 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.
  • Hotfix 11.2.1 (2013-12-06) 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 DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage.
  • The damage listed is actually a combination of all the pellets' damage values. The actual damage per pellet, barring damage falloff, is 4.5 DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact, 2.5 DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture, and 3 DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash.
    • Fires 10 pellets, each dealing varying physical damage for a total of 200 damage.
  • The Brakk is typically considered to be an upgraded Grineer version of the Bronco.png Bronco series with greater damage potential, more pellets per shot, and a larger magazine size. In addition it also has Naramon Pol.svg and Madurai Pol.svg Polarity slots, allowing it to accommodate powerful mods sooner.


  • The Brakk 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.
  • 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 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."

  • 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:

  • The Corpus counterpart for The Gradivus Dilemma is the DECorpusHandCannon.png Detron. 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.
    • Additionally 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 the Bronco.png Bronco.
  • 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.
