CoD AW HBRa3 Assault Rifle Overview

Another fully automatic assault rifle, the HBRa3 is a bit of a beast in CoD: Advanced Warfare. It has a decent damage output, a moderate amount of recoil, and the ability to fire the first 3 rounds out of the muzzle at a faster rate than the rest of the clip. This unique ability makes the gun ideal for burst firing even though it is an automatic.

Surprisingly, when used the right way, the HBRa3 is capable of working well in almost any combat situation. At close range a single burst (just a tap of the trigger) without aiming down sights can take an enemy out quickly. At medium range the full auto fire mode does wonders for killing foes. And at long range burst firing while ADS can eliminate enemies well.
