Flag: BurstDelayX (substitute X with an integer from 0 to 3)
File(s): rules(md).ini
Values: Unsigned integers: All non-negative whole numbers from 0 to either 32767, 2147483647 or 4294967295.
Default: 3–5 frames
Applicable to: In Firestorm: Weapons, in Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge: VehicleTypes

Weapons that have a Burst greater than 1 fire that many times at short intervals (as opposed to firing them simultaneously). The delay between each burst shot is randomly selected from a range of 3–5 frames. BurstDelayX can be used to override this delay (in FS, this is a per-weapon property, in YR it has been turned into a per-unit one).

The X should be substituted with an integer between 0 and Burst−2 (the game will only parse X from 0 to 3 inclusive). For example, if X is 0, the value represents the time in frames between the first and the second burst shots.

Note that setting BurstDelayX=0 will remove any delay, allowing the bursts to be fired on consecutive frames.

In Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge

If any BurstDelayX is omitted, it will inherit the value of the first numerically preceding one.

For example, if Burst=3, BurstDelay0=5, and BurstDelay1 is not defined, it will inherit the value of BurstDelay0, which is 5. In other words, each burst shot will fire in 5 frame intervals.

In a slightly more complex example, if Burst=5 and BurstDelay2=10 (other BurstDelayX's are not defined), burst shots 1 through 3 will fire in 1 frame intervals (the default behavior), however burst shots 4 and 5 will fire 10 frames after the preceding shot.
