  3. Overall best combat rifle?
7 years ago#1
So just wondering what is the best combat rifle/machine gun you've come across? On my lvl50 Roland I have this one as a main weapon

Dahl AR Deathly Cobra
damage 254
accuracy 94.3
rate of fire 15.0
mag size 12

recoil reduction +62%
accuracy +48%
1.4x weapon zoom

With skills and class mods/proficiencies it does 700-ish damage per bullet 2k-ish crits and 32 magazine size. Also found a 300-ish base damage stomper but its bullet velocity was intolerably slow.

Bullet Velocity? Hmm...interesting. I never realized it was a variable.

Yeah hardcore but unless you find my class mod it won't be as good. Mine adds +50% firing speed and +70% mag size, but it still kicks *** without.

I ******* hate stompers, but with my level 50 Brick the best I've found so far is a

307 damage
88.5 accuracy
10 fire rate
-40% recoil reduction
1.4x zoom

I hate it, but it's the only combat rifle for level 50 that actually does any damage.

@ buckskin 2000
take a stomper class CR and strafe a wall while firing and see how far the bullets are off from the reticule... or compare the two by firing both at long range and timing when the bullets impact whatever you're shooting at. Mostly noticeable in duels and long distance shots which are needed when soloing.

@ WTFisALife
What's base damage? because with everything except proficiencies popped in I have 42% bonus from class and roughly a 24% bonus because of impact totalled with the class's bonus.

apocalypse 354 is base damage, and then IDK what my proficiency adds, but I've noticed like 554 dmg or something like that when I actually hit someone.
I'm average.

If that is a factor for all gun types, you bet i will be doing that. I knew bullets had travel time, just not that it was different from gun to gun, especially guns within the same class.

I hope I can find a Cobra as good as the TC's once I'm 50. I LOVE Cobra-type rifles, and have a version thats a lower level than that one. It's starting to show its lowering usefulness as I go through my second playthrough
