Everything here is based on the assumption you are playing on mayhem 10 at lvl 60.
List of Good Always Applicable Snipers:
List of Garbage Snipers You would never choose over the above or pretty much any other weapon in the game:
- Literally any other sniper in the game.
99% of all the snipers that some poor soul poored their heart into is literally never used because they do such a tiny amount of damage that they don’t even begin to approach a fraction of the DPS of something like the hell shock. Hell most of them do less than a 3rd of the damage fired by a single shot from the hell shock. Honestly, what the hell. Snipers have always been mediocre to bad in BL3 but now they are just a joke with only the Krakatoa and the Sandhawk even being worth considering. Please, snipers need a rebalance, and they need it now. Hell make it the next event. “BL3, now with sniper rifles”.
