People Playground – How to Make Burst Guns

A tutorial to make three round burst weapons.

Step 1: Detection

Choose a gun. Bigger, unmovable weapons work best, like turrets. Then, get 3 lasers and detectors. Resize them, or keep them the same size. For this one, I scaled them down so they could fit behind the gun.

Step 2: Make delays

Any small item should work, however I haven’t confirmed this. Delays should order the shots instead of making them all fire at the same time. I used Weapons+ nails for these.

For the first shot, the detector should be connected to the gun directly. After that, add one delay until you get the number of bursts you want. (Refer to image, i’m bad at describing things.)

Step 3: Wires

Here it gets slightly more difficult. Connect activation wires from the detectors to either the delays or the gun.

For delays, connect the detector to the delay, and (if there is another), connect to the next, then the gun. If not, connect the detector straight to the gun.

Step 4: Repeater

This is a simple, and sometimes useless, addition. If you are using a toggle, do not ignore this.

This is a simple connection from the gun back to the lasers. When the gun activates, this will disable the laser that just fired.

As a example, the bottom laser activates first. When it makes the gun fire, the gun will deactivate the laser. This means you don’t have to press the activator twice to fire after the first shot.

Step 5: Activator

This is anything that is used to activated the gun. Simply connect this to the lasers. Not too difficult.


  • The gun with not fire if the detectors do not have collision.
  • The gun may not work well if not frozen.
