The Burst SMG has a chance to appear among all weapons and items in the following circumstances:


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 Rare variant 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.

Changes[edit | edit source]

9.10 Content Update (May 29th)

What's New?

  • Burst SMG
    • This burst-fire SMG packs a real punch in close quarters encounters.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The weapon appears to be based on a Kriss Vector. Unlike the Vector, which has a 2-round burst and full auto modes, the gun only has a 4-round burst fire.
  • All three rarities of the Burst SMG deals two more damage than all three rarities of the Suppressed Submachine Gun, despite having a much slower fire rate and a slightly smaller magazine size of 24. Although the damage is low, the weapon's fire rate is 7.5, beating the Burst Assault Rifle (Battle Royale)’s fire rate.
  • It looks like a machine pistol, but the weapon is held with one hand on the handle and the other for support.
  • Followed by the Compact SMG, this is the second submachine gun to have the "submachine gun" part abbreviated to "SMG"
  • This is the only SMG that has not been vaulted once.
