Well, Creston, I don't know what to say except sorry for your apparently excessive bad luck in finding items you don't want to use. I've seen plenty of those stats on guns, but they are nowhere near the most dominant in my experience. Although the burst fire is pretty high up there, since all Dahl-brand guns do that. I tend to avoid Hyperion weapons because of their accuracy over time crap, but it's just a preference. I've seen a few that do okay, like pistols where the recoil doesn't degrade fast enough to stop me from firing several clips after the first one with dead-center spread, or shotguns where accuracy doesn't matter too much to begin with.

Hyperion weapons don't degrade accuracy over time, though, they improve; The first shot has greatly reduced accuracy, it's the later ones that have the dead-center spread to them.

The longer you hold the trigger, the more accurate they get. It usually only takes a few bullets to draw a bead on 100% accuracy, so with something like an SMG or AR with a decent sized magazine Hyperion weapons can be pretty good. Unless it's a TMP on auto-fire, the Hyperion pistols are garbage because you're never firing continuously...and even with the TMP's their clip size is never big enough to get a great benefit.

Maybe I wasn't clear in my statements there; I know exactly what Hyperion weapons do, I've used plenty throughout my 100+ hours playing... I referred to recoil getting worse because that's what happens when you stop firing to reload -- the accuracy deteriorates again. Depending on the reload speed of the weapon, that may or may not cause you to have to waste another half a clip like a proverbial Imperial Stormtrooper before getting back on target. I should add that it's also possible to have some success with their sniper rifles, if you can manage the ridiculous scope sway.
