Assault Weapon Trait Idea - Burst Fire

edited January 27 in Suggestions & Ideas
Assault attacks are pretty weak, which is kind of funny considering the weapons they have. I think it would be great if there was an option that would allow us to deal more damage with them. Burst fire is a mode on guns that allows you to fire multiple bullets with one press of the trigger. So imagine a survivor using that mode and concentrating an attack on one target, it should deal massive damage right? This mode can be represented in a weapon trait and can do something like:

If you attack a single target increases piercing (10/15/20) and critical damage (20/30/40).

Imagine an assault weapon with gold Piercing/Burst Fire and silver Destructive. That would be 50% piercing and 80% more critical damage.

Now imagine Alpha in the lead with Rosita using a sure shot burst fire attack. Assuming their traits are at least level 5 that would be:

70% Piercing (AlphaLT+Piercing+BF)
65% Critical Chance (Base + SS +AlphaLT)
80% Critical Damage (Destructive+BF)
+47% weapon damage (Rosita's LT)

You could even reach 100% CD with gold Destructive (60) and Burst Fire (40) if you want silver piercing.

Those are some juicy stats, and that's before badges.

    How would you be able to select burst mode over normal wide spread?

    My idea is a weapon trait, so it will be like with Rosita's LT where you will have to attack just one target. That's why I suggested Destructive, Piercing, and Burst Fire paired together, instead of wide spread because then it would be easier to aim at just one target. However, your question does give me an idea. Perhaps a button can be developed such as the charge attack button that allows you to switch between modes for all assault weapons so that you don't have to give up wide spread?

    Edit:

    I just realized I didn't clarify that it's a weapon trait in my post, although the title does say Weapon Trait. I'll fix that now to make it more clear.

    How about this idea to activate Burst mode

    When you slide your indicator onto a Target, hold it there for a few extra seconds and The cone narrows. Release and fire!

    Awesome idea, however I think for coding reasons it would need to be a weapon special function, maybe one for next campaign? Then it could have 3 other traits as well, gold piercing, gold destructive silver concuss. Trait would be stationary at 20% piercing and 30% CD.
    We haven’t had an assault special functionality in a while.

    LMG kinda does this, but not as focused fire. Just straight-up 50% more damage on top of the three traits.

    Yes I just bought myself one with Resource Points from GW, after over year with only a (useless) low-level Epic one. :grin:

    It does nothing like this as it doesn’t have destructive nor extra piercing. 50% of shit damage is still shit damage.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Rosita's leader trait do something similar?

    Yeah, just weapon damage though, I actually mention it in my post. A lot of leaders actually boost existing traits. That's why I came up with this idea, to compliment Rosita and make her somewhat viable. Also I really just want to see more ways to get extra piercing in the game.
