Default which Sniper rifle is the best?

hi, i love the sniper rifle but i really hate the two-shot critical (slag->switch->head shot) in UVHM. so i want to ask what is the strongest sniper rifle with the highest single hit? is it the Hawkeye?

Highest single shot damage is the Pimpernel, always.
But if you want to shoot stuff in the face, Hawkeye/Muckamuck.

Invader is the best burst fire sniper for a Critical Ascension build not utilizing a low level crit machine.
Sloth and Pitchfork are also very good.

Best full auto sniper being a Lyuda.

My first comment was a bit of an in joke.
The question comes up often and I wanted to say a weapon that hasn't been mentioned a ton of times before.

The gem guns from dlc4 overwrite the accessory prefix with the manufacturers gem.
They have a slight critical damage boost over a normal version of equal rarity.
So a Skookum/TumTum Muckamuck would become a Citrine Muckamuck.
TumTum is the crit attachment prefix no?
Base damage increase yields higher crit damage so I'd think you'd want a Skookum..

I may have the prefixs switched in my head though.

^This is completely dead on.

Also

Skookum = Jakob's Damage accesosory
TumTum = Jakob's Crit accesosory
