Semi auto rifle clearly wins. Burst rifle needs a small buff to compete.


You also need to compare the reticle sizes, the shock and stun effect on hit targets, the number of rounds required to kill a downed opponent.  

Burst rifle is fine.  No buff required, other than the fix versus armour.  I use the Burst, it's fine.

Well being a burst rifle user I will add a few things. One being you didn't take into account headshots on either gun for the burst rifle it's 3 bullets to down or one burst if you aim is good, and the semi auto is two bullets to down by headshots. As a burst rifle user I do win the majority of close range fights against all guns. It is generally looked at as a weaker gun, but i don't think it's as weak as some say it is.

@sintax201 how many bullets exactly is it for headshots? I know it downs in one burst, but not how many bullets specifically.

We're here, just very busy with the next patch (can't give info on it yet Smiley Sad ).  I try to pop in a couple times a day to at least see what everyone's talking about.

Burst Rifle headshots are 3x damage.
