I am in no way trying to take anything away from what you are doing(and trying to do) But the "best" isn't just highest damage.
Agreed 100%. that's why I'm doing this.
The Sniper video showed that not only did the Sloth out damage per second pretty much all other sniper rifles (nearly doing twice as much per burst as the next two highest on the list combined), but it excels in nearly every situation (except for rapid movement targets like the motorcyles on the Beatdown... but for those I usually switch to a Ravager).
