Burst Assault Rifle, formerly called Assault Rifle (Burst), is an Assault Rifle in Battle Royale. It is available in Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary. The Burst Assault Rifle's Common, Uncommon and Rare variants were first vaulted in patch 7.10.4, then the Epic and Legendary variants in patch 7.30. All 5 rarities were unvaulted in patch 11.0. It fires in 3-round bursts and uses Medium Bullets. The Burst Assault Rifle was also Vaulted due to the weapon being relatively useless due to the existence of other various assault rifles and players rarely using the weapon. It got unvaulted by increasing rate of fire.

The Burst Assault Rifle has been unvaulted for 24 hours on June 27th, 2019 for the 14 Days of Summer event, Following by the Quad Launcher, this weapon was the third weapon to be unvaulted for the event.

Pros and Cons

Burst Assault Rifle
Pros Cons
Although poor, landing headshots three times in one burst is pretty effective. The fire rate is extremely low compared to most assault rifles.
Dealing with the low damage and fire rate, the weapon has a somewhat great accuracy. Full auto capabilities won't get players anywhere. It must be tap fired.
Waiting for the crosshair to go to FSA will provide a great deal of defense. It has a long reload.

Trivia

  • The Common, Uncommon, and Rare Burst Assault Rifles used a silmiar model as the Save the World Lynx, the other two variants are not based off of any StW item.
  • Though officially called the "Burst Assault Rifle", it was commonly called the 'Burst', 'Triple Burst', '3 Burst AR' or 'Burst AR'. The Epic and Legendary variants are often called AUGS due to the design being based off of the real life AUG assault rifle.
  • The Common, Uncommon, and Rare variants are based off the FAMASes and are called that too...
  • In the Unvaulted Gamemode, the Burst Rifles are extremely useful during early game, but The Light Machine Gun might be a better choice during late game.
  • Curiously enough, the FAMAS was originally conceived to be added into the game not as a FAMAS, but rather a G36C (or Gewehr Sechs-und-Dreissig Compact in German) short-barrel rifle. However, the idea got cut before making it into the final game.
  • The Common,Uncommon And the Rare variants used to have a old model which is based of the Semi Auto Rifle while the Epic and Legendary Used to be the FAMAS until Chapter 2 Season 1 came out in which changed the Common,Uncommon and Rare to be the FAMAS while the Epic and Legendary was changed to be the new AUG
