Default BL2 Best legendary weapons question.

I was wondering what the best legendary weapon was for each weapon category and who I should farm these weapons from?

Infinity Pistol - Farmed from Doc Mercy

Bitch - Farmed from BNK-3R

Maggie - Farmed from Mick Zaford (After completing the "Gang Wars" quest line in favor of the Hodunks)

Hellfire - Farmed from Scorch in Frostburn Canyon

Slagga - Farmed from Jim Hodunk (After completing Gang Wars Questline in favor of the Zafords)

Confrence Call - Farmed from the Warrior (Sometimes the Gun falls in the lava or under it's body making it unobtainable)

Pitchfork (Sniper) - Random find no specific boss drops it.

In my opinion...

Pistals -It's closer than you think! (No it isn't) – Infinity: Infinite ammo, does not need to be reloaded. Recoil is in the shape of a sideways-8 infinity sign. (Dropped from Dr Mercy).

Shotguns - Let's just ping everyone at once. – Conference Call: Low-pellet-count, high-damage shotgun with small spread. Additional pellets will fire from the sides and behind out of thin air, quadrupling the pellet count for a massive amount of hits. (Drops from the Warrior)

Combat rifles - Speed Kills! – Shredifier: High fire rate, long barrel spin duration.

Sniper rifles - Pele humbly requests a sacrifice, if it's not too much trouble. – Volcano: Fire damage bonus, fire effect spreads to nearby enemies. (Drop from the Warrior)

Rocket launchers - Multi-kill. – Badaboom: Fires 6 rockets simultaneously at the cost of 1 rocket ammo. (Drops from King Mong)

SMGs - yup. back. – Bitch: A returning Legendary weapon from BL1. Extremely low (< -100%) "recoil reduction" - firing increases accuracy very quickly compared to most Hyperion SMGs. (Drops from BNK-3R)

Shields - Wow, I CAN do this all day! – The Sham: Abnormally high bullet absorb rate, around 80%(Maximum is 96). (Drops from BNK-3R)
OR
Shields - Float like a butterfly... – The Bee: Extremely high Amp damage bonus and No Amp Shot Drain. Gun damage is normal while shields aren't full.(Drops from Hunter Hellquist)

Grenade mods - A skilful leech is better far, than half a hundred men of war. – Leech: After the first set explodes it spawns a second set of child grenades which has high elemental DOT. In addition it also leeches health directly for as much damage as it dealt. (Drops from the Warrior)

Legendary class mods and relics sux

A lot of people don't like the volcano in this game so it might not be your gun either

Here's a list of the other snipers (With flavor texts)

Bison Bison had had had had had Bison Bison Bison shi shi shi – Buffalo: Increased critical hit damage and increased normal damage, always has no scope. (Quest reward: Demon Hunter)


I can see my house from here. – Fremington's Edge: Increased zoom level. While scoped, has the Hyperion steadying effect without having to fire. (Dropped from Reeth the Assassin during Quest "Assassinate the Assassins")


I infrequently perish. – Trespasser: Ignores shields. Callback to Mordecai's Trespass skill from Borderlands 1, which gave up to a 100% chance to ignore shields. Mordecai also contacts you via ECHO to see if you're alright when getting a Second Wind. (Quest reward, "Animal Rights")


Yeah, booze'll do that to ya... – Sloth: Burst fire sniper rifle with slow moving rounds. (Quest reward, "Rakkaholics Anonymous")


Mainstream'd! – Pitchfork: 5 Horizontal Shot Burst Fire. (Drop from Terramorphus)


a Rose by any other name... – Morningstar: Annoying, guilt-tripping voice on reload, kill, or critical hit. Chance of additional +100% or +200% critical hit damage. Storing gun also does annoying voice which plays at random intervals. (Quest reward, "Hyperion Contract #873")


Je suis enchante, Ou est le bibliotheque? – Chθre-amie: Sends out healing beams on hit like Transfusion grenades. Similar effects to Kyros' Power from BL1. (Quest reward, "Hyperion Slaughter: Round 5")


Man Killer. – White Death: Fires a trio of projectiles in a horizontal pattern for the cost of 1 bullet. Increased critical hit damage. Damage is spread across the 3 projectiles. (Drop from Gettle)


Makes your brain hurt. – Skullmasher: x5 pellet per bullet, low accuracy for a sniper rifle. (Drop from Son of Mothrakk) A returning BL1 legendary.


The Executioner has arrived. – Invader: Fires five shots in burst (Drop from Saturn)


Ceci n'est pas un Sniper Rifle. – Longbow: (Translated: This is not a Sniper Rifle) Scopeless, fire damage, and fires a slow, arcing projectile which leaves pixelated trail (resembling the arrows in Minecraft). (Drop from Badass Creeper)


Sink me! – Pimpernel: Fires a single round that on impact releases 5 globules matching the gun's element in 5 directions which also explode on impact. The five globules spread from the center of impact in arcs, as if droplets from a splash. (Quest Reward from C3n50r807/Censorbot - Mission: "Don't Copy That Floppy")

Two good lists that I certainly can't improve on.

@exif: "Gun damage is well below normal while shields aren't full."

Did you mean "Gun damage is normal while shields aren't full." or "Gun damage is well below normal amp damage while shields aren't full."?

I certainly have not noticed a nerf in intrinsic gun damage when bee is damaged, just a return to normal gun damage, but I could imagine I have not paid close enough attention during firefights.
