The Burstfire Pistol is a Secondary Weapon Receiver available in Blacklight: Retribution.

Weapon Overview

This weapon fires a 3-round burst similar to the Burstfire Rifle. It has a low damage of 48, but high recoil, large spread and low fire rate, but it's easy to use if the player knows how to properly aim down sights while using it and can control the recoil.


The Burstfire Pistol is a good alternative to the Light Pistol for anyone who wishes to bring more fire-power to the battlefield without training their trigger-finger. Try to keep tracking your target long after you pull the trigger as there is a considerable time between shots within a burst. Failing to do so may result in shots being wasted in your precious magazine, although an extended one will be more forgiving. Consider using the alternative iron sights or a scope if you find the basic pistol sights difficult to use.


The Burstfire Pistol has 5 different magazines available.

Premade Variants

These premade versions of the Burstfire Pistol were purchasable as stand-alone weapons in the Marketplace before the Parity Patch on PC.
