Burst Fire

A weapon that has the burst fire property can make a normal single-target attack or to make a short or long burst, either at a single target or at an area.

Long Burst


You can spray a 10-foot-cube area within normal range with shots. Each creature in the area must succeed on a Dexterity saving throw DC 8 + the attacker's proficiency bonus + the attacker's Dexterity modifier or take the weapon's normal damage. This action uses 10 pieces of ammunition.

If the attacker is not proficient with the weapon, the Dexterity save DC is 10.

Short Burst


You can opt to use a short burst, firing 3 pierces of ammunition. On a successful hit, you may reroll all damage dice and take the higher result.

An attacker who isn't proficient with the weapon doesn't gain a benefit from this action.
