The other question of the ages: Needle Rifle or Carbine?

How the hell is it worse than the DMR? They're more or less equal. Their killtime is almost exactly the same if you're one of the people that pace their shots. If you don't, and you just spam shots without letting bloom reset, then the NR's only advantage (bloom resets quicker so it has a much faster fire rate if you pace your shots) is gone. For this reason, I feel as though it's completely useless in zero bloom Slayer.

That's exactly it. Because of the way bloom is implemented in this game perfectly pacing your shot to a full reticle reset is unnecessary and spamming becomes pretty effective. Thus in nearly all scenarios DMR >> NR.

I feel like the NR has more aim assist, but thats just me.
