I fire in auto in 3 shot burts. Semi does damage your gun over time unless you have a mosfet.

Semi, if they dont take there hits it quickly goes to full auto, when giving cover often few shots off in semi unless its a team mad sprint in which case its full auto again.

I never use anything more than 3-4 round bursts if you are using more than that you are either;

1. A rich ####
2. have no idea where the incoming fire is coming from
3. 14
4. Going for the flag or a last push

(only No# 4 is acceptable in my books)

nah, that's what the launcher's for!

semi (once it's working again) with auto no more than 3 round burst, except in certain cases (push, cover or non-hit taker out of m203 range)

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

I only use semi when I chrono.

This is for 2 very important reasons -
1)I'm a frickin' support gunner, I'm hardly going to be suppressing someone with single shot
2)The semi setting on the ICS SA80 family is...'fragile'. I'd rather not have to spend 35 on a new trigger set.

In all honesty, I rarely fire more than 6 rounds/burst. Biggest burst I've ever done (and have no intentions of ever repeating) was all 50 rounds. That was a very special circumstance - I was all alone on defence, and almost all of the enemy team was inside our base.

I try semi but just get impatient when they don't take hits, so I don't bother.

I know a support gunner who has a mass fire rate and had a 1500+ round burst.

Yes and no. It does happen, but not nearly as much as people warn you about, or the ammount the newspapers said happened with the real steel SA80.
For example - sometimes, I can be sprinting with my Saytie right over my chest webbing, rubbing all over the place and hitting my mag pouches - but nothing happens.
Then I might be moving slowly and carefully, and suddenly it'll briefly catch on my jacket sleeve, and suddenly I'm in semi.

Do you have STAR/Ares or ICS?
If you have ICS - be very careful. In semi, the trigger set can break if the gun locks up (pull the trigger and SNAP, you need to buy a new trigger set). And when you're shooting too. I saw a guy knock the selector from full to semi whilst shooting and it shredded the piston.

Yeah, I'm paranoid about it happening with my LSW. That said, I frequently 'cheat' and use it lefthanded.

Today I was mostly using full auto, looooong bursts. I was film-softing, it required me to shoot like a noob. And charge like Rambo, SIG in one hand, LSW in the other. Most fun I've had in a while...
