Repro steps

  1. Take an M16
  2. Put it in burst-fire mode
  3. Press the "sprint forward" button/input
    • I used "Double-tap W"
  4. Fire your weapon after you hit the input, but before you get to full sprinting speed
    • I fire immediately after hitting "W" the second time.

Expected behavior

All three bullets should exit the gun immediately

Actual behavior

Some bullets exit the gun, but once the sprinting animation starts, the remaining bullets exit when you stop sprinting.

If you stop sprinting when you arrive at a wounded teammate that needs first aid, this bug can cause an extremely unfortunate negligent discharge.

Good report!

Realistically, burst should only fire bullets as long as the trigger is pressed. If you depress it fast enough, you can shoot single fire or 2 rounds bursts.
