Fortnite Battle Royale - Burst Assault Rifle Tips

Fortnite Battle Royale is known for getting and losing a lot of weapons with each update. And the Burst Assault Rifle is the result of an update as well.

This gun is great in a lot of things and if you want to know how you can use it to your advantage, then refer to the guide below:
More Accuracy:
There is one advantage and one drawback with this gun. The advantage is that it has a lot more accuracy than the other Assault Rifles available in the game. This makes it a perfect killer for long range combats. But, the problem is that it has a lower fire rate than the other assault rifles. This means you cannot just empty your magazine on an enemy as it takes hiccups during continuous shots. This is because it is a Burst Assault Rifle and it fires in small bursts. So these bursts hinder with its constant firing. But the good thing is that you will be able to fire more precisely and that’s what matters eventually.

Range Matters:
Another good thing about the Burst Assault Rifle is that it has a very good medium to long range. Due to its small bursts, your gun does less recoil and that results in higher accuracy. One thing that you should keep in mind is that it has a low fire rate and that means you cannot expect it to work better than or equal to the other assault rifles in short-range combat. This is because you need something that can fire continuously when an enemy is close and personal and a Burst Assault Rifle cannot do that. So if you see an enemy closing in, try to stop him with your Burst Assault Rifle but as soon as he comes near you, it is best if you switch to another weapon with a higher fire rate.

Crouching is Better:
The gun has very good accuracy and you can make its accuracy even better if you crouch while firing. If you do that, your first few shots will have very high accuracy and you can deal a lot of damage if you aim right. So it is something that you should keep in mind if you are firing at a target that is far from you.

More Damage:
The best thing about the new Burst Assault Rifle is that it has more damage than the standard burst and that is something that a lot of players don’t know yet. Many players think that it’s just the same as the old Burst but it is not. You can literally take on an enemy with just this gun by your side. So don’t hesitate to pick it up if you see one.

These are some of the things that you should keep in mind if you are using the Burst Assault Rifle. Just make sure to do some practice with the gun and understand its burst timing and the range of the gun before using it on enemies.
