Tips[edit | edit source]
- The Burston Prime has a fast burst, making it decent in long-range combat.
- The Burston has arguably better ammo efficiency than the Soma or Synapse due to its burst-fire nature.
- Fire rate mods ( Speed Trigger, Shred, Gilded Truth, etc.) reduce the delay between bursts, but did not increase the fire rate of the actual bullets themselves. As of Hotfix 17.4.3, fire rate mods now increase the fire rate of the burst itself.
- It isn't advised to put a Heavy Caliber on the Burston Prime as this weapon benefits more in close to mid range situations with its high accuracy and damage over long range situations where hitting enemies with all bullets becomes more difficult.
- Modifying the magazine can sometimes be problematic, as you might be reduced to only 1 or 2 rounds in your last shot. A Max Rank Wildfire or a Rank 3 Magazine Warp will give you a magazine of 54, allowing you 18 bursts before reloading. This ensures you will always fire 3 rounds in every burst.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Burston Prime has noticeably less golden ornamentation than previous Prime weapons.
- At the time of its release, the Burston Prime was the first Prime weapon whose component drops were exclusive to the Orokin Derelict instead of the Orokin Void. Update 12 has since moved some component drops into the Void.
- The Burston Prime is the first Prime primary weapon to receive a Weapon Augments mod.
- The Burston Prime's gold parts can be recolored as of Update 15.13.
- During a flashback to The Old War in Erra (Quest), an Excalibur Prime is seen wielding the Burston Prime, albeit firing in full-auto mode. This implies that the weapon was more powerful in the past, matching the weapon's Codex entry.
