"Sets fire type to 3 round burst."
— In-game description

Burst Fire is an attachment for assault rifles and marksman rifles in Call of Duty: Ghosts. It changes the fire mode of the weapon to three round burst. There is a delay of 0.2 seconds between bursts.

In addition to changing the fire mode, Burst Fire decreases the fire rate by 9% for most assault rifles, except the AK-12, Remington R5 and Maverick, for which the rate within burst remains the same as the fully-automatic versions. Contrariwise, for marksman rifles, the attachment increases the rate of fire by 25%.

The MSBS assault rifle has an integrated Burst Fire, meaning it fires in 3-round bursts by default, although this can be changed with the Automatic Fire attachment.

In Extinction mode, the attachment uniquely gives the MR-28 a two-round burst function instead of three.
