Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Common, Uncommon, and Rare Burst Assault Rifles use the same model as the Save the World Semi-Auto Rifle and Lynx.
  • Though officially called the "Burst Assault Rifle", it is commonly called the 'Burst', 'Triple Burst', '3 Burst AR' or 'Burst AR'. The Epic and Legendary variants are often called FAMASes due to the design being based off of the real life FAMAS F1 assault rifle.
  • While the Common, Uncommon and Rare variants incorporate visual elements from several real-life rifles, such as the AKM and the SKS, it is not directly based on any real firearm.
