Agreed. The main problem with this sniper is its damage per ammo. Its also burst locked like the Woodblocker. So taking in to account how much ammo the gun is actually consuming per trigger pull is also important.
Some of the only popular Burst fire weapons in series history are ones that had exceptional damage per ammo cost. Examples being the Sandhawk, the Pitchford before the nurfs to the gun and changes amp shields on extra pellet guns in BL2. The other ones being the extremely accurate and ammo efficient guns. The Scorpio in BL2 is good because extremely low recoil regardless of its stock there was also a Dahl ar in BL1 Dahl ARs had low recoil and with enough RoF you could burn though and enemies easily.
Dahl Snipers in BL2 where largely ignored by the community due to how hard it was to land sequential critical hits and the fact that usually 1 or 2 of your shots and ammo where a complete waste.
I like the gimmick of the weapon but it has the same issues the Stalker dose. The Stalker from Bloody Harvest fired additional projectiles in a vertical or horizontal pattern when terrified. Problem is with max stacks 2 or 3 of those extra pellets are going to completely miss and the gun takes a ton of ammo making it only niche use on larger enemies.
