A-280 CFE Overheating?

Hey guys just wondering if you think the A-280 CFE overheats too quickly when used with the 3 round burst mod. I really love the gun when the burst mod is equipped but it overheats rather quickly. I think if EA gave you like one extra burst before overheating it would be perfect and still not OP. And it’s not like the specialist has many great cards so I don’t think it would be a big deal. What do you guys think?

  • If it didn't overheat too fast it would be broken. Despite that its still the best weapon at close/middle range.

    Well I’m on PS4 and not many people use it. I know In the Beta it was the thing to use. Idk if ppl spam it on PC

    Underused doesn't mean underpowered. It's the best jack of all trades gun in the game

    Is this the Legolas from PS4 Agressive Campers?
  • Idk I feel like it’s underused because it’s in the specialist class

    No it is an easy gun to do well with...The problem is it is very sensitive to lag so you don't get a feedback and you miss the cooldown .It is widely used on Ps4 in Blast and Strike because specialist has so many advantages for agressive players

    Interesting
  • It’s the best rifle in the game. Overheats on the fifth shot. If it did on the sixth, it would be OP. It does seem to regularly fire a shot after cooling though. A bug I suspect.
  • It’s perfect, if it were any better it would be overpowered, just overheat it, roll, hit the flush marker and shoot again and if you have the time wait for the golden marker, hit that flush and you’ll be able to take out 3+ players before it overheats again. Fantastic gun!

    cause everything you read on the internet is true...
  • It's fine. If you fire longer before overheating it wouldn't be balanced.

    I agree with this, as a PS4 player I can vouch for it as well. Also it's my favorite gun to use, I main the specialist. I'm just not as good at using it. I do feel like it's always over heating, but i know that if I could land all the shots I do with it, it dominates. Its been quite a while since I've used it without the burst mod, but I'm thinking that the burst mod is totally worth it?

  • At first i didnt like this gun. played on maps where my team was brain dead for the unlocks. now i got all the unlocks for it and wow love this gun IF you have room for it. if its tight quarters not very good but a lot of open space very good.

    Funny seeing Heros get shot few times by it and run the hell away unless they block then i switch to vanguard and watch them try to block slugs lol

    Also good for the gun ship w/the green lazor beam of death

    Not talking about the assault a280. The cfe is the specialist one.
  • I’m fine with the 5 bursts per/magazine. It does need a faster cool down bar tho when overheated**. I think the IQA and CFE should both have fast cool downs as they require several shots per kill.
  • I personally think it's fine. The damage output is very good if you land your hits, normally a two-burst if you land all three shots from the first burst or you can even one-burst people at the right range if you get all headshots. In turn, you have to cool it between every engagement, but the manual cooling is pretty quick so I don't think it's an issue and it's generally pretty balanced IMO.

    It still suffers from the cooling flush bug, it fires a shot when sprinting while doing the flush, so you have to do the cooling again whithout sprinting or just learn not to sprint when doing the flush, a little annoying that is. Many weapons have that issue but it hurts the CFE the most.

    this game is a standard quick scope affair so you can land lots of high damage hits with the A-280 CFE and burst mod. The flush is the buggy thing especially with the unreliable visual feedback cpourtesy of Frostbite . On a 'good' server its deadly !
  • Ion mod don't seem to overheat quicker, at least in arcade mode

    I find the burst mod deadly at closer ranges with the single shot more for longer engagements
  • The A280 CFE ii's my favorite gun in the game. I run it with a stinger pistol every time I use the specialist. I have no honest complaint. I guess there are situations where I'm thinking this gun is overheating too quick, but in my hands, 1 or 2 more bursts before overheating dilled be kinda OP.
  • I've only came across one play who uses the A280-CFE except I use it with Ion shot equiped and yet it's 3 shot burst is still pretty "D%A&M^N" good. As long as you can land head shots you have little worries of overheating. Plus you got an EE-4 to make up for it which makes the specialist really good just about every map. personally I want Boba Fetts EE-3 to be a lot like that than a "less medium ranged spread shot gun all while Han is allowed to shoot his DL-44 across the map.....WITH ONE HAND!!!!!"
