Cyberpunk 2077 features a large variety of muzzle mods, from brakes to suppressors and beyond. You can break these down even further, depending on the weapon type. For instance, a handgun muzzle mod isn’t the same as a rifle muzzle mod. They’re not compatible.

The RC-7 Aswang is a muzzle brake for Assault Rifles and Submachine Guns added in Cyberpunk 2077 Update 1.5 and continues to reign supreme as one of the top weapon mods in the game.
