Default Which way is better: Excessive Shot debate (XSV)

I had a friendly debate on what Excessive shooting really is and which way of doing it is technically the right way. I have my theory that the way Toxic Euphoria and myself do it is the most functional and effective way (BXR RRX BXR RRX ect). However, it is not flashy and looks like a normal Doubleshot/ BR kill which isn't great looking but allows you to keep shooting with out a delay but doesnt look as clean.

The other side of the house are the people who prefer the One Gun Quad (AKA the Gunshot XSV). This is the BXR (pause) RRX BXRRX. Both work, both are fast, this one looks awesome but is limited because you have to pause before shooting your gun again after the kill.

My XSV Breakdown:


Time breakdown:
BXR Reload time - 1.07
RRX Reload time - 1.21

Kill Times:
RRX BXR RRX - 1.10
RRX BXRRX - 1.07

Toxic Euphoria Gameplay: he does his XSV (BXR RRX BXR RRX)


I want to hear the community's thoughts. I thought it was an interesting topic that hasnt really been considered since Excessive shooting isn't commonplace and there are a few ways of doing it.

Its entirely situational, there is no best way to do it to blanket every situation. Like you said, bxr rrx bxr is the more functiinal way... However something like bxr rrxbxrrx is usually going to get better style points.


Too situational to judge

That being said I have always thought "BXR- RRX-BXRRX" was the "official way".

^^

it should be.

love the research, <3 blackhawk. have always been curious about this. i suppose getting that extra shot in is worth the .03 seconds, but if you hit your shots perfect you'll get the kill anyway.

Pretty cool to see what the actual numbers are. I wonder how this compares to a quad shot.
