The Facepunch Compensator is a weapon modification available in PAYDAY 2.


The Facepunch Compensator is a pistol Barrel Extension that greatly enhances the weapon's shot Damage and Stability at the expense of Accuracy and Concealment.

It often plays second fiddle to the Flash Hider. Not only is it free to install with equal if not better stats, it can be combined with Barrel upgrades where the compensators like the Facepunch are incompatible as a rule. However, for those who do not have the Gage Mod Courier DLC, it fills the role nicely.

Compatible weaponsEdit



  • The item is the decorative front bit of the WE-Tech Tenderizer, a full-metal muzzle brake designed for airsoft M1911s.
    • The original model name (Meat Grinder) helps confirm the link.
    • Tenderizers can be utilized in close quarters in the same manner as a bayonet, albeit dealing blunt trauma instead of impalement. Despite this, the weapon butt animation and damage for pistols modded with this part remains unchanged.
  • The name is a reference to the Facepunch forums and/or its owner Facepunch Studios.
  • The brand logo "CQB Grinder" is engraved on the right side of the module. The left has a warning about the sharp edges.
