Semi auto rifle clearly wins. Burst rifle needs a small buff to compete.


You also need to compare the reticle sizes, the shock and stun effect on hit targets, the number of rounds required to kill a downed opponent.  

Burst rifle is fine.  No buff required, other than the fix versus armour.  I use the Burst, it's fine.

Well being a burst rifle user I will add a few things. One being you didn't take into account headshots on either gun for the burst rifle it's 3 bullets to down or one burst if you aim is good, and the semi auto is two bullets to down by headshots. As a burst rifle user I do win the majority of close range fights against all guns. It is generally looked at as a weaker gun, but i don't think it's as weak as some say it is.

it isn't 6 bullets to down for the burst, just 2 bursts.

Hello everyone! I’m Scott Lowe, the newest addition to the community team at Naughty Dog. As a longtime fan of the studio, it’s an absolute dream come true to work alongside the developers here and immerse myself in our amazing player community. It’s week two for me, so I’ve got a ton left to learn and get up to speed on. Nonetheless, I plan on posting on the forums as much as possible. You can also hit me up on Twitter, @ScottLowe, whether it’s to talk about games, the studio, or exchange GIFs. Beware, my GIF game is strong. -ND-ScottLowe

@sintax201 how many bullets exactly is it for headshots? I know it downs in one burst, but not how many bullets specifically.

We're here, just very busy with the next patch (can't give info on it yet Smiley Sad ).  I try to pop in a couple times a day to at least see what everyone's talking about.

Burst Rifle headshots are 3x damage.
