The saber

#1N7TyrantTitanPosted 10/3/2013 4:27:00 PM
I just unlocked this weapon today.

What can it do? Its an ultra rare so I can't help but think its a really good weapon. I was thinking of using it on my destroyer with the hurricane as a sidearm.

Any thoughts? Suggestions? I really like how this weapon looks and I want to make the most of it even if it is only level one.

It basically functions like a semi-auto sniper rifle that doesn't lose damage when not aiming down the scope. Go for headshots whenever the opportunity presents itself.

As with any assault rifle it's good on the Ghost. This gun gets some flak but I actually really like it once you get used to it. It fires slower but has great range and accuracy; some people like a scope on it but I don't. As always make sure you use piercing in some way.

I use it randomly on a number of classes but I don't think that it technically compliments the character. I like it on both the Turian Soldier and Sentinel and I sometimes use it on the Krogan Soldier.

It's one of the worse URs in the game. I would argue the worst after Paladin and Spitfire.

That said, it's not horrible. It relies on headshots to do good damage.. not because it gets a headshot modifier, but because it's damage output is rather low otherwise. This gives it a disadvantage against bosses.

Take an ultralight SMG sidearm, and it serves as a fantastic light sniper rifle. My Turian Sentinel is a great marksman with it. I use Overload to strip shields, Warp to weaken Armor, then collect headshots with the Saber.

Did someone say "Prothean?" This one is familiar with enkindling. This one has enkindled many females across the galaxy.

I want to like the Saber. But between its weight and relatively low damage I get frustrated by its lack of performance despite how fun it is to use.

So because it's a heavier weapon I'd be fine using it on my Destroyer and I have his Devastator mode specced for mag size. I don't know too much about this gun since I missed it in SP and I unlocked it right when I was getting ready to go to work. So I haven't even tried it out yet.

Since it can be used like a sniper rifle, It would be a good investment to put a scope on this right?


Because I was thinking a scope mod and mag mod.

It doesn't need a scope. It needs as much damage as you could possibly get. Barrel+mag with AP/drill ammo is your best bet. Saber is one of the few guns that makes the most of drill ammo.

I would also advise full RoF for a destroyer if you don't mind a respec. RoF and damage bonuses will somewhat alleviate its lower damage. It has a huge clip with mag mod already.

I hate the saber but it's actually really fun on the ghost thanks to assault rifle damage and overload to stun enemies. Cloak+Overload+Shoot kills most mooks in just one shot.
