I farmed a OP6 Hornet from Knuckles today (for fun) and took it to the Peak to give it a try.
It works surprisingly well, killed everything in the first 2 rooms. Of course, Dukes Mom destroyed me in the next room, but that’s another story.
The burst fire mode on the Hornet does not always burst, though. I’ve noticed this over the years, sometimes when you’re scoped in and fire, the Hornet will only spit out one bullet.
It does not matter how full the mag is, it just seems like kinda randomly it doesn’t actually burst.
I assume others have seen this. It’s disconcerting, especially when you’re expecting the next burst to take out and enemy and you get just one plink.
Has anyone ever seen a reason for this? Doesn’t happen with other Dahl weapons.
