Might not have been noticed since it seems no vanilla weapon uses an interruptible burst combined with an arbitrarily high burst size anymore (pretty sure the Assault Chaingun and possibly Storm Needler used to use this setup), but usually such weapons tend to be rotary or sustained weapons that penalise you somehow if you let go of the trigger? For such weapons surely the burst size doesn't need to be displayed in the stat card - or at least hide it if the burst is above a certain value.



Or, y'know, perhaps add a "hide burst size" column in weapon_data.csv like we have for DPS values etc, but that might start getting messy - we have a fair few columns in that sheet now.

From the 0.9.1a patch notes:

Weapon tooltip:
Now properly handles weapons with a very large interruptible burst
