Binary Rifle > Incineration Cannon, unless there are threatening vehicles running about or the people on the other team are stupid enough to run around in butt-humping pairs to the point the Cannon will net you a double kill most of the time. --- You wanna live forever?
Rockets and Fuel Rod are the game on easy mode. Sniper is great, but the level effort needed is increased by a lot. The giant laser on the binary makes you have to quick scope and shoot, otherwise you give up your position unlike the other snipers. I would take the IC over it every time given the choice.
