Best sniper?

#1DR_PariahPosted 10/23/2012 4:00:44 PM
hey guys. On my Zer0 character, I snipe a lot, and I've specced pretty highly into the sniping tree. This means I am on an eternal quest to find better rifles. My current rifle is a

Jakobs Skookum Chinook, with 33000 damage.

Does anyone or has anyone seen anything better?

Razres Whitedeath. Only about 18000 but it's pretty much fully automatic with a 20+ magazine.

I'll look into the White Death, but I gotta admit, doesn't sound great. I'd rather have one huge burst of damage than six smaller ones.

I know I saw one of the "White" rifles with a huge + to critical damage the damage was lower than yours but the crit damage was like +150%

Yea that's the Razres one I have, +150% crit. forgot about that. I see what your saying OP, but the skullsmasher has spread in it's shot an both the Chikamin and Skookum version I found have -66% weapon damage. Are you sure yours doesn't have that debuff as well?

The Volcano seems to do a metric crapload more damage than what it says. My 15k one does more damage than any Purple Jakobs rifle I've found.

Renamaniacle, I'm pretty sure it doesn't have the debuff. Not 100%, but I'm almost positive it doesn't. If you are on XBOX, mind duping me that White Death this weekend? I'd like to try it out a bit.

MoxRavager, I have only seen a single Volcano so far, a level 37. It was awesome at that level, but I haven't managed to get my hands on another. Would love to though.

I like the White Death,SkullSmasher and Etech Railers.

I like the slag Pitchfork though, it slags almost all the time because of the # of hits.

Mega, I have to disagree with you on the Pitchfork. I think it would be great to have a strong slag sniper...but it's still a slag sniper. Since slag is support, I would rather have it on a pistol, AR, SMG, basically everything BUT a sniper. I use my snipers as primary damage, so it feels wrong to have a slag sniper. And the Pitchfork burst fires. That's enough to send me away, I absolutely hate burst fire snipers.
