The best time to utilize Deadly Force is when you come upon groups of opponents clumped together, like in hallways or small rooms. Wait until you begin your attack to activate the Burst, since its duration does not last long.
|Burst Level||Effect||Level Unlocked|
|Level 1||Increases damage of your weapons by 50% for 6s||-|
|Level 2||Weapon damage bonus increased to 100%||-|
|Level 3||Your team also gains 50% bonus weapon damage||-|
The Deadly Force Burst can be rendered less effective if the player uses Big Dog to add more health to their character, or even by simply avoiding a Deadly Force user for the remainder of the Burst.
