Strategy[edit | edit source]
- The Burst SMG works best at close-to-mid ranges, as four body shots can be effective at an enemy, with the and variants able to take out a full health/shield bar in a single burst. However, is it not very useful for long-range attacks, as it has notably lower damage and lacks first-shot accuracy, missing the target easily.
- Headshots can be potentially effective at closer ranges, although it would not have the same effectiveness as a shotgun.
- Make sure to carry a steady supply of light ammo, as its 4-round burst feature may consume bullets very quickly.
