The Burst Rifle is so underrated. I can take people down fast with it and Im not good at TLOU MP. The Burst Rifle rocks
The mighty BR, once they buff against armor im going to use it more. Also maybe upgraded once should be slightly buffed agreed fully upgraded it is beast. Drastically better fully upgraded
Its actually good without any upgrades. Without any upgrades it can down a enemy in one burst. Even when it takes more bursts my enemy does not tend to get away from me but quite often my enemy gets away from me when I use SAR or bow. Upgraded I can land all the shots in one place which makes it deadly especially with Sharpshooter 3. Its weird that a lot of people view it as a weak gun though.
I never said I needed to use Sharpshooter lol I choose to use Sharpshooter. I dont understand why you think the Burst Rifle needs to have Sharpshooter and the others dont. I use Sharpshooter 3 for 25 health. If I used Sharpshooter for SAR I would also get 25 health. Its handy when facing several people. Lol at you thinking the Burst Rifle needs Sharpshooter. Ive been a Burst Rifle user since I unlocked it and it does not need Sharpshooter its just handy getting 25 health back for each headshot. Ive only recently started using Sharpshooter with the Burst Rifle and Im level 151. I think that people who think its a weak gun or needs a perk obviously does not play with it much. Even people who claim its only good when upgraded obviously does not play with it much. If you need Sharpshooter for the Burst Rifle then thats because you are not practiced enough with the Burst Rifle or you find aiming with it more difficult and so you need the reduced damage wobble but thats due to you not the weapon.
Or it might be because you are not fast enough against SAR users while using the Burst Rifle. Whatever the reason is its not the gun. I think people blame their shortcomings on the weapon and thats why the Burst Rifle is seen as a weak or bad gun. Its ok to not be good with a weapon. Everyone sucks at a weapon or is not as good as others with it but blaming a weapon is not ok as its a cop out. I suck with the bow. Does that mean the bow is weak? no it means Im weak when using the bow. The Burst Rifle is not a weak gun thats needs Sharpshooter for a crutch.
Its suppose to be less accurate than the SAR at medium range. The Burst Rifle is a close range gun. However at close range the Burst Rifle rules. Sorry for misreading your post INCAN. Its a shame we both suck at that bow because its a very effective weapon
