Unlocked by default, the Bravel-1 is a good, balanced starting weapon, with low recoil, open iron sights, medium rate of fire, large crosshairs, high accuracy and a small magazine. Its relatively medium damage means that FMJ bullets make a marked improvement, and paired with an ACOG Scope, can make a great long-range weapon. The grip's usefulness is questionable, since the Bravel does not have much recoil. Due to the small 20-round magazine capacity, the Extended magazine attachment may also prove useful.
The Bravel-1 is a common weapon, even among higher-ranked players, thanks to its ease of use and high rate of fire.
In Campaign Mode, the suppressor doesn't seem to affect the Bravel's damage to enemies as seen in Mission 4, whereas in multiplayer, it (and any other weapon) loses two damage rating points.
Its real-life counterpart seems to be a SCAR-L in terms of damage and fire rate, but is visually a SCAR-H.
There is 'FN Herstal Belgium', 'MK17 Mod 0' and '7.62mm' engraved on the side, the SCAR's US designation and real life manufacturer. Maybe the developers decided that the the weapons will not carry their real names on the last moment.
