The best choice out of the three would be the compensator due to its ability to control horizontal and vertical recoil. Recoil is the action of the weapon springing back when you shot at the adversary. It is further separated into Horizontal and Vertical recoil, and AKM in BGMI appears to have a significant horizontal and vertical recoil. As a result, players have a difficult time controlling the weapon's recoil.
