Dahl was a bit split in bl2, some people just hated the burst fire but wanted to love them because they loved the look and idea of them.
Gearbox listened, now Dahl has a part called fire selector that can spawn in 2 ways that we have seen. Burst to Semi or Burst to Full. And while I didn’t have this confirmed in the video, commentors saw others footage where many guns had it both ways. So both semi and full auto snipers.
Dahl still has middling stats from what I could see but excellent recoil, almost none in fact. But middling stats is not bad because you don’t have the draw backs, and being able to stay on crit really makes these stand out.
I think its the most improved because the ability to land easy consistent crits with high DPS full auto.
