Can't tell if everybody is saying harrier because it's overrated, or because captainderp posted this and we all wanna make him feel bad for using harrier constantly. Anyway, I think the black widow is overrated. Everybody says it's the best sniper but I'm LOVING the valiant.
It crushes bosses on max beam, but it needs AP Ammo or HVB (+weight) to cope with armor and the windup means you can't spam powers or dodge constantly. Plus missing lowers its actual DPS, and without powers to help stagger stuff, people seem to miss a lot...
The Hurricane has pretty poor accuracy, but that doesn't really matter too much given the light weight and armor shredding, which make it ideal as a secondary and invaluable to casting classes that only really have problems against bosses in the first place.
harrier is overrated with zero sarcasm. many guns outdps it, has mediocre burst damage, sucks against phantoms, its boring as a pistons vs spurs nba finals, and it steals ammo from acolyte using teammates on platinum. there is a better gun for every single class in the game including the ghost. saber>harrier for gold and ppr>harrier for plat
claymore also. raider makes claymore seem like an uncommon. better burst damage, ammo, and far better dps while lighter. just a bit less range.
