Balanced Burst Setup

This setup balances vertical recoil, fire rate & stealth to maintain handling even when bursting. This setup has tight bullet grouping and can chip away target's health at mid-range reliably, but may lack a bit of damage to actually finish someone off.

Use Mainly To Chip Away Enemy Armor & Health

M16 can grind away enemy armor & health quickly, but due to the burst delay its rare that it can finish opponents off. It should be used as an opener to burst down enemy armor before switching to another weapon for the kill.
