    Nice guide, definitely considering giving the Neo Splash-o-matic another shot again.

    Thanks a ton, it's definitely a strong weapon with a brilliant loadout. If you have anything I can add, please let me know.

    Awe man, I never realized how wonderful the burst bombs can be, just wrecking with the Neo and burst bombs in tower control and rain maker, you did good.

    The guide for now is finished as far as text is concerned. My only plans for future updates is to get some photos and videos that better demonstrate examples. If someone is interested in helping me get said footage (or editing some existing stuff) then I'm more than happy to credit you accordingly.

    Also willing to make refinements if people have any suggestions. Feedback and rates as always are greatly appreciated. A massive thank you to the rates thus far.

    You'd normally kill with 1 bomb + 1 burst (actually the second shot of the burst if i'm not mistaken). A nozzlenose burst is 3 shots. By running damage up, you'll get the kill after the first hit of the burst. This decreased ttk may prevent trades.

    nice guide. One other application I've started using burst bombs for is to check around corners or over obstacles for camping enemies. You can hear the hit sound if they're there.

    I'll make a more specific point about that since that's the kind of thing I meant by checking enemy terrain, though I realize that it's a rather brief term for a large concept. I'm planning on expanding some points to be clearer and adding images or video when I can cut down a file I have. Thank you for taking the time to give me feedback!
