Thats just a muzzle brake. There are quite a number of real sniper rifles that have it as well - it just means that the gun packs a significant punch

This one actually looks somewhat similar to the one on the Q sniper rifle:

And if you look at some tank muzzle brakes, the design doesnt seem all that unreasonable anymore

Huh, neat! I've never seen a gun with one of those before. The more you know!
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

Well, they are kinda rare... only there when they are really needed, so I can see where the confusion is coming from. And on tanks they are no longer in use since a few decades, because modern ammo is fin-stabilized, and said fins would get caught in the brake and rip apart both the barrel and the projectile
