Is there any logical "best way" to set the burst length?

I've always just set everything to "long burst" at every distance thinking the extra damage was worth an occasional jam but now I'm not sure. I've missed some really good shots because of jams but I've also done more damage than I thought I should have because of the burst length.


In my experience, and it's a looong one, set it medium and keep it that way. It's the other way round: the poor bonus you get with longs isn't absolutely worth the pain-in-the ass of running around doing S's (and being a sitting duck meanwhile).

The only cases worth a long are life-or-death ones (your or your target's). E.g. an head-on when you are likely to die, or a coup-de-grace at an almost down foe. It happens once or twice per league, if any.


I set mine to "Extra Long" which means if I get a red hit it is always a "Pilot Killed" or "FTE"!!
