I recently bought the OBIR burst rifle (perm off Armas). I love it, and noticed it has three weapon mod slots. I thought about getting Cooling Jacket 2.

What are some thoughts on this? Thanks!

All three of the red mods are viable, IR gives a nice range boost, CJ is great for obvious reasons and HB is a good choice for the Obir also. To accompany I would suggest Mag Pull 3 and HS2.

It'd be interesting to see what the Mobility Sling performs like in an Obir....

CJ3 HS3 Tagger.


Cooling Jacket does not change the time between the bursts of 3, but in between the actual 3 shots WITHIN the burst.

As such your TTK with the OBIR changes from 1.02 seconds to 1.00 seconds.
.02 seconds with Cooling Jacket is outweighed by a Faster Reload, or a Tagger.

As such I would recommend *in order of importance* :

Hunting Sight 3
Tagger
Magazine Pull 3

OBIR does have high damage falloff, but most of the time 3 bursts will kill regardless because you only need 1 bullet of the third burst for a kill, meaning you can get away with shooting outside of your effective range.

Magazine Pull puts your ammo count at 18 *6 bursts and still a nice multiple of 3*

Hunting sight and tagger are good for obvious reasons.

The only sensemaking red mod is IR. CJs effect is nonexistant as it does not make you shoot the three bursts out faster. It only makes the 3 rounds in one burst come out faster. Also the weapon blooms out so little, that it's at max accuracy before you can shoot the next burst, meaning HB is useless as well. However the OBIR has pretty steep damage drop off, so IR3 actually does fairly much to help.

Apart from that, HS3 and third mod is sorta up to you. Could be TPS, Mobility Sling, Tagger (not sure what that stacks with?), ammo mod..

What is IR3 again? I'll look for that. Yeah it does seem like Cooling Jackets won't make a difference, thanks for the reply! :)

Looks like I can unlock this. How many kills with my OBIR do I need to get to the proper level?

I tried it, doesn't make much difference since you're still moving slower than vanilla AR in MM.

Marksman 13, perhaps? I didn't quite remember.
But it takes a lot of kill to get there if you don't have high level of Marksman role already.

I go with HS3, Mag Pull 3 and Tagger. It's quickly becoming my go to gun when times get tough.
If you are offended by the above post, you need to lighten up.

I'm not sure where my Marksman level is. I've only just started using semi-automatics. Thanks!

HS3, IR3/Mag pull, Tagger. I prefer IR3 since the damage drop can be crucial at times, and i also don't suggest CJ because the effects from it are extremely minimal compared to other mods

I HAVE GM ON MY BALLS!!!!!!!!! MODARATORS TOO!!! U R ALL NOOBS!!!!!! I CAN gosh darn U EASY WITH MY STAR556 LVL9 TUTORIAL IDIOTS!!!!!!!!

The tagger is great. Especially for your teammates. But you shouldn't really concern yourself with tagger or mobility sling, because... they require a minimum rank of 195 to be used.
If money is an issue, I'd just go for hunting sight 2, improved rifling 2 and done. Clear upgrade over the stock OBIR.

Got IR2. Seems to make a difference. I picked off two enforcers at range and they could barely touch me. Gonna go for the Hunting Sight next. :)

Mobility sling increases movement speed zoomed in. It does not effect target acquisition time.

Obir has really low target acquisition time, meaning mobility sling while good, isnt as good as tagger because you can simply zoom in, pop your shot, and run with shift back and forth, zoom in, repeat.

But if I get the tagger mod it will make HS useless as it counteracts it's usage. I have HS1 and IR2 and it seems good....

Tagger is purple.... you can use it with (orange) Hunting Sight.

Think about mods that later when you hit rank 195, or at sometime when you get three slotted at Marksmen 15. Who knows you might actually switch guns.

Extended cause while Mag Pull3 will let you reload faster; it doesn't help if I kill you while you reload with the extra bullets I have.

If you're stupid enough to be standing out in the open reloading you deserve to die. The OBIR is a cover poppers delight, you can easily duck down between shots or back and forth around a corner. MP3 just means you can duck into cover for less than 2 seconds to reload and get back into it.

I usually play with friends over TS anyways so Tagger mod is useless to me. I guess it would be better for people who play without any voip. I use the obir completely different than you though :P I stay zoomed in as I snap shoot and lean at the same time.

The setup I'm using. It's pretty reliable and the default ammo and reload times are okay. No need to really alter them.
Emerald, more valuable than Copper and Aluminium, but at least the two latter are useful.

Haha I said the OBIR was over looked a few months ago and everyone called me crazy, and now look at how many people are using them. Funny.
