It took me a while but then it clicked the Bullets represent the fire mode: single, Burst, Full.

In addition, you can change it in crafting. Legendary weapon can’t change fire mode though.

I was so sad when I couldn’t respec to bolt action on the Icarus Sniper. 36 rounds of bolt action with Brain Eater? Hot damn

ID: gtd3iws

I don't have the weapon yet, but just on paper Icarus looks like a massive disappointment. The (imo) coolest looking gun in the game but it got into the worst possible weapon category (Automatic Sniper Rifle) in the worst possible variant (maximum fire rate).

Now in theory, that is not bad. You could treat it as a kind of more precise assault rifle, sure, but the scope is a massive detriment then (loss of peripheral vision), and I don't think it has the ammo reserve to make it truly viable in that capacity anyway.

Yeah, legendaries being stuck to 1 variant or coming with predetermined stats is a bit meh, but I hope they will change that in the future!

I don't know if you know btw, but when you change a lightweight sniper to a standard sniper the magsize gets reduced and sadly won't stay at those nice numbers. 🙁

ID: gtc7ggx

Oh shit for real? Thank you

ID: gtc8dp8

It’s the change variant option under your mod screen for future reference

ID: gtdfy78

Is it just me or does it seem like legendaries are there to be broken down for crafting. My epics with a solid mod and a legendary mod are way overperforming all the legendaries I try

ID: gtcu8he

You have got to be fuucking kidding me...

you can tell from the 2nd title too. for AR/SMG its:

Standard - full auto

Tactical - Burst

Sharpsooter - Single

ID: gtch7vt

Is sharpshooter just dogsbit in general? Switching to tactical improves the DPS by so much it's insane. I thinking tactical is even better than standard for damage (both DPS and the much better crit damage)

ID: gtcjk5s

I haven’t found a sharpshooter that was worth using. Feel very weak compared to tactical.

ID: gtcjo3v

I also use Tactical for double damage + short burst fire lets you hold the trigger and still have good control without drift from recoil.

ID: gtcjqmq

Burst snipers suck tho.. I agree that the assault weapons with 1 shot suck, but boy do those burst snipers feel weak every time.

ID: gtcrgss

Dunno about sharp shooter but I run a bolt action tifle and managed to finish the story last night with no problems. Don't know how good my setup would work on console bc I suck with controllers but I headshot for 120k so the game turns into: "I see elite, I delete."

10 hours in and I didn't even know this. Take my upvote OP.

Wait til you hear what level I was when I finally realized you can melee...(it was lvl 13...I'm not smart)

ID: gtcfec2

You can melee???

ID: gtcoh6x

Well then wait until you hear there is a running melee attack.

Im just jealous that youre being offered two weapons with storm whip when ive been looking for it since the beggining of the game and ive all but 4 tier 2 weapon mods now, still no storm whip. 🙁

6 : Anonymous2021/04/04 14:15 ID: gtck9jb

Kinda been a standard since Battlefield I thought....

ID: gtcn70h

Real gun manufacturer have done that for years

ID: gtcsa8r

Yeah, as a long time Battlefield player that one made sense right away.

ID: gtcuc33

Yeah honestly thought this was just common sense....

There are so many little icons in this game that I don’t understand yet.

ID: gtclh4r

A big one to learn is sometimes you’ll see above a mod on gear a 4 box grid symbol. That means you already unlocked that mod on your character, so either sell the gear for cash, or stash it for a different character to unlock the mod.

ID: gtczc23

The big "aha!" one for me was finding out about the healing icon.

You can tell when killing an enemy will heal you on a Trickster (and presumably any other class) by looking for a green icon on the LEFT side of an enemy's health bar. Once you notice it, you can't unsee it and it's super helpful.

ID: gtczraj

This also helps you know when you are within close range damage distance. As a shotgun trickster it's very helpful choosing when to push out.

ID: gtd23bq

Wow, learned something new from this thread, thanks for that. Level 17 so have been getting by, but this may help at times.

ID: gtdki8d

Holy crap, that is great. Thanks!

ID: gte3ttr

At first, I thought this was a "suppressing fire" thing, until I saw it appear on an enemy I wasn't shooting at. Now I know, coolio!

8 : Anonymous2021/04/04 11:38 ID: gtc70v1

yes i know its obvious and everyone already knows this but i couldn't figure why some guns were full and others burst

ID: gtcdtlh

Definitely not obvious and not everyone knows. Thank you for sharing.

ID: gtcqk9n

I'm level 25 and I still don't know what I'm doing. So if you figured something out even the smallest thing you're welcomed to share it. After all the game just got recently launched.

Yes and you can change them. Modify the weapon variant under mods to change firemodes!

13 : Anonymous2021/04/04 14:53 ID: gtcofjh

Well op thank you! Had no idea! So many little icons I gotta learn from the game!

I just realized this earlier this morning also.

Bought a platinum coin just to give you for this info. Thank you, sir!

PSA, if you find a weapon you like but the fire mode isn't your favorite you can change it at the upgrade station.

17 : Anonymous2021/04/04 17:57 ID: gtd9sno

I didn't realize it till I was already 30 and done with the main story.. I had been trying to memorize the weapon names 😀

18 : Anonymous2021/04/04 18:31 ID: gtddtlb

Oh. Those are bullets? I thought hmmm why does this gun say DDD or DD...

Thanks for clearing that up 😉

Ahh. Didn’t pick up on that. Thank you

I thought this was common knowledge? I’ve seen this in both video games and real life since forever.

Indeed, that's a good PSA, I just learned it myself yesterday too. Now I'm still wondering what is the difference between accuracy and stability lol
