The Double-Tap Rifle is a two-burst weapon filling the main weapon slot.
The Double-Tap Rifle was released with Rundown 005 as a rundown specific weapon.
This weapon focuses on precise shots and posseses the second highest damage per bullet of all main weapons. Instead of firing a single bullet, the Double-Tap Rifle fires in bursts of two.
It is capable of taking out both Shooters and Strikers with a single burst, requiring two headshots and one headshot plus one bodyshot respectively. One strategy for taking out Strikers is to aim a little bit below the head for the start of the burst. The recoil will pull up the weapon for the second bullet and land the required headshot. This is also very convenient when shooting crawling Strikers, since the first shot will destroy their head, followed up by the second bullet hitting their body directly behind.
With good aim, this weapon can be potentionally very ammo efficient (against Strikers).
- Ammo efficient against Strikers.
- High damage.
- Fast kill time with good aim.
- Ammo inefficient against Shooters.
- Recoil on the second bullet can impede precise shots.
