What's everyone's take on this? I know different situations call for different loadouts, but assuming that everyone's skill tree was base and had no specific sniping bonuses, what would be the best sniper rifles in the game?

Skullmasher
Cobra
Pitchfork
White Death
Volcano
Elephantgun
Rex (yeah, I know, it's a handgun...but it has the fire rate and damage of a sniper)

I think I'll do a comparison video. Anyone interested in helping out?

Hawkeye needs to be on there. A mediocre BA ranked, properly speced Zer0 wearing the bee can hit well over 1m for every crit on most enemies.

Snookum mukmuk(purple)is my favourite sniper.
Did you know that if you use slang more than 80% of the time you may not have been properly educated?
Of course you didn't.

White Death, Cobra, Hawk Eye, Muckamuck, Tresspasser.

Don't think anything else compares...

I haven't tested to see if Hawk Eye is better than Muckamuck yet. Might be able to knock one off the list.

Also the Trespassers ability to pass its effect to vehicle lmg should be displayed.

You know I would help, Zer0 is still my only 50. :p

only on crit, though. and only if youre specced in such a way that the mediocre base damage gets enough of a boost to make a difference.

My skookum Hawky will alway out DPS my elephant, but generally needs a Bee Shield to do so consistently. Obviously, it is meant for long range, as without achieving crits, its a poor choice its base damage is bad unless the sweet spot is struck. Elephant is more consistent in that regard.
