Nerf the Javelin!

Just kidding, I don't believe in nerfing co-op games (with a few exceptions). But man that gun is crazy powerful, I used it back when I had it at level 2 and thought it was OK. But now it's at X so I thought I'd give it another chance, put it on a GI (without hunter mode), and I was killing Primes on gold in 3 shots. I still prefer the Black Widow for my play-style but this will now be in my regular rotation. What are your favorite snipers?

Sniping in this game is bad.

I like one-shotting Ravagers with it on the GI, but killing small stuff with Javelin GI is such a pain.

I like the Javelin. It's not terribly easy to use, but hey, stupid-high damage.

I prefer the Valiant above all the other snipers. Scoped Saber is also pretty good. The Kishock is my favorite one shot sniper.

That's my main problem with the Javelin. Sure, it's incredible against bosses, but there's not as much room for error on smaller enemies, and if you miss, you endure a long reload speed and a wasted shot. Things like the Black Widow and Valiant are better for dispatching mooks.

Lmao gold

Try killing them on Platinum without you dying first

GI is better off using harrier
