I don't understand what the link above was supposed to show. I mean, with 3-burst that gun fired 3 ammo bullets resulting in 9 pellets as it's a split-shot gun. The player could just hold the fire key a little longer for the same effect.

The actual benefits of the 3-Burst are:
1. Convert Heavy Carbine from semi-auto gun to a burst shot.
2. Increase fire rate on full-auto guns exploiting the lack of delay between bursts:

The second feature works best on slow-firing guns (cold fire LMG/AR, SAW, FRC Cabine), still affects medium fire rate guns (VBI AR/SMG, VBI Thunder, Mazu), almost negligible on fast-firing guns like Tachmag (could depend on your network latency though) and does not affect burst-fire and split-shot weapons like Blast Rifle.

stick one on a volge typhoon ar. :)

if you use one on a br with a tactical scope and are a crit headshot player,
youll see the difference immediately.
( or any weapon that you can crit consistently with.)

This the only use I have found.

you will pick use very small dps gains on certain weapons, however, you add alot of recoil in doing so, and can also lose some sustained dps but going without some reload or mag.

the special case for this mod is the cannoneer casti springer, you will actually gain sustained dps and burst dps using this mod, and due to the casti's rolls, it wont feel sluggish or sloppy with super long reloads or tiny mag size like on a blast rifle.

this may also work with non cannoneer casti's and/or regular pulsers, however, i have only phisically tested can casti's, blast rifles and hog legs (blast rifle gaining 1.7ish fire rate and the hogleg gaining absolutely nothing)

(also, this was tested using screen capture and frame by frame timing, not the usual stop watch/reaction test many stand behind)

Best use I've found is on the frc heavy assault carbine. Takes a on shot per click semi-auto ar and makes it do 3 shot bursts instead per click/trigger pull. Some people claim you get increased Fira on a gun by equipping it but haven't tested that myself yet.

I use them on volge typhoons. I have a few FRC heavies with burst mags as well.

Every Heavy FRC I have has a controlled burst on it. Run with a tactical scope, fall off barrel, and hi cap, and you've essentially made a fast firing sniper. Crit shots all day long...

you dont sound stupid. you should never feel stupid for asking a question. the use of that particular mod is pretty self explanatory and the others took care of the more advanced uses si i dont really have much more to add.

Don't know if it's true but I've been told a burst mod will give a BR a bit more umf.

You'd be surprised, I couldn't ask a question like this in zone/clan chat on Xbox EU for the sake of being made to feel like a d&%$. I wont name names, but the likes of Alta from Wicked, Dremora from Ark Elite, etc. really enjoy bullying folk.

They only do that because they don't know the answer.

Honestly mate take no notice of them, they're just kidding you and because they get a reaction carry on.
I don't know the bitwhore analogy.
Let me know here or in a pm.

lol so you can afford to buy stuff from the store, don't worry about it.
Sounds like there's a bit of the green eyed monster hiding behind the remarks.

Just don't take it to heart, we're all here to have some fun.

I know I dont envy this kid & pretty sure Alta doesnt either.
Plus never seen her say it & I certainly havent called him that!
Guess he just likes the attention!

You mean controlled burst or hi cap? Maybe Trion should make a gun that can take 2 mods per slot? Would make for an interesting jp.
