Pick Stability First
Getting Stability first for the Semi-Auto Rifle ensures that you can easily land your shots, saving you ammo and time. Highly recommended to get this one first.
Get Capacity Next
While it only adds a measly 3 bullets, the Capacity upgrade can keep you running during intense moments. Reloading during a fight can be fatal and having this one up can make a difference.
Should You Get 4x Scope Or Burst Fire?
For the Scope, the Crossbow is a better weapon to consider as it is silenced from the get go. Burst Fire is okay if you're planning on using this gun in close range but it can be punishing if you don't land hits. While it can be toggled, it does easily burn through your ammo as each burst consumes 3 bullets.Check Out All The Best Weapon Upgrades Here!
