The JAK Signal Burst is the newest Aftermarket Part MW3 players can get their hands on, but is it worth putting in the effort to get?

In Season 1 of Modern Warfare 3 players gained access to different conversion kits for completing set Weekly Challenges. The JAK Signal Burst is the latest reward to enter the fray for week 5.

However, some MW3 players have labeled it as trash and don’t think it’s worth getting at all.

Players Hate the JAK Signal Burst

MW3 fans seem to hate the JAK Signal Burst Aftermarket Part because of its dramatic recoil, which has a significant negative impact on the way the Holger 556 controls.

Less than one day after the weekly reset, players have taken to social media to express their disappointment and vitriol towards the JAK Signal Burst:

As you can see in the (hilarious) post above, the conversion kit transforms the Holger 556 assault rifle into a burst rifle that shoots four rounds per burst.

That sounds fine on paper, but in practice, players are finding out the hard way that this thing has a serious kick to it. The recoil is so severe, it makes you miss several of your shots when shooting at your target, as demonstrated here:

It makes the Holger 556, one of the best assault rifles in the entire game, significantly worse off when equipping the JAK Signal Burst kit.

Many players think that most of MW3’s Aftermarket Parts are bad:

It seems that most Aftermarket Parts in Modern Warfare 3 aren’t viable for competitive play. It’s unfortunate, especially as Sledgehammer Games insisted the system was going to be a game-changer before MW3’s release.

Here’s hoping that future conversion kits are better!
