That was surprisingly close to the top, but not the right answer.
I just need to compile some game play footage of me going through one area with the top 3 or 4 damaging guns and show them in action and this puppy will be ready for upload.

What all are you factoring in to "best"? If its just damage, you cant really say best. You can say highest damage potential.
I forgot to add: The gun that I'm saying is the best delivers the most damage, quickly, with nearly ZERO recoil. Has a large clip, 3.1 second reload and the fire rate is fast enough to do almost THREE TIMES as much damage with two squeezes of the trigger than any other gun I tested.
Again though, I need to test them out in a good area and I need some variations of this gun, including one with no element. I got a guy working on it for me. --- XBL GT: Ki11er Six (ones instead of L's and a space between the two words) Various Borderlands 2 glitches: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgdactVBsYk
