More precise than an SMG, with the stopping power of a small shotgun, the BRT (or "Burt", as it's sometimes called) is highly prized among collectors and connoisseurs alike.
~ Item Description

About[edit | edit source]

The BRT7 Burst Fire Gun (also known as the "BRT") is the Gunner's alternative secondary weapon. It is a handgun with a long barrel and a slender profile. The weapon's magazines are stored internally, and the port is accessed by pulling the knob above the weapon's handle to reveal it.

The Burt fires three bullets in a rapid burst with one pull of the trigger. One burst of bullets all follow the same spread pattern, though rapid fire with the weapon will cause bursts to fly in random directions. At base level, eight bursts can be fired before needing to reload.

The Burt carries a plentiful amount of reserve ammo and can be modified to be a highly adaptable sidearm which performs well in a variety of situations. Careful aim with the Burt can be lethal, as one burst is usually enough to take down smaller enemies like Glyphid Grunts. The weapon also remains decently accurate and has limited spread growth, allowing it to be accurate even on the move. It even comes with a small base level of armor breaking bonus.

Although the Burt is powerful, it deals much less damage compared to the "Bulldog" Heavy Revolver, with a lower per-shot damage and reduced range. However, some players may be more attracted to the Burt due to its more forgiving operations and much better fit as a sidearm, compared to the grey area the Bulldog finds itself in. The Burt's larger magazine size and reserve ammo pool are also particularly handy on higher Hazard Levels, an advantage the Bulldog cannot claim. Asides from lower damage however, the Burt is a relatively flawless weapon – while by no means an exceptional firearm, its adaptability makes it excellent for all manner of situations in the depths of Hoxxes IV.

A new shape to the bullet delivers a lot more damage but it's odd size means fewer rounds in the clip and a bit less ammo overall.

After impacting terrain, these high-tech bullets convert in to electro-minelets that will electrocute anything unfortunate enough to come close. However they don't last forever and the rounds themselves take more space in the clip and deal less direct damage.

Electro Minelets is an Unstable Overclock
Each Bullet that touches a surface automatically turns into a Minelet after 0.1 sec, and arms for detonation after 0.8 sec. Creatures that go near it will trigger the Minelet and get 2 seconds of Electrocution, each Minelet can only be triggered once. By having the mod "Blowthrough Rounds" it is possible to shoot through Creatures to hit a surface, otherwise the Bullets will not turn into a Minelet.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When the 7 in "BRT7" is interpreted as a second T, it can be read as "BRTT". This is an onomatopoeia of the weapon's firing sound.
