In Insurgency, the heavy barrel is a barrel attachment available for the Security Forces. It is able to reduce the vertical recoil of a weapon by essentially increasing the weight of the front, thus counteracting some recoil forces. However, equipping the heavy barrel will also increase the player's loadout weight. The heavy barrel's in-game description is misleading, as it has no affect on a weapon's spread.
- 10% reduction in vertical recoil
- 60% reduction in sway speed
- When compared to the foregrip, the heavy barrel is more effective at reducing weapon sway. This makes it more suited for a marksman role.
