The XR-2 is a 3 round burst Assault Rifle in Black Ops 3. The XR-2 can kill in 1 burst from close range and 2 bursts from long range if all bullets land.
The XR-2 is best used for laid back game play like sitting back and watching objectives. It’s recommended to side step and move as much as possible while firing bursts in case you miss your first burst or so.
Mastering the burst fire is mastering the XR-2. Use the gun as much as possible and get to know the burst delay. However, keep in mind that holding down the trigger will fire the weapon at its maximum speed between burst delays.
Recommended Attachments for the XR-2 are Quickdraw, Long Barrel and a Scope of the players choice. Rapid Fire also decreases the burst delay of this weapon if your’e having problems getting used to it.
- Damage: 40-30 or 1 to 2 bursts to kill but usually a 2 burst.
