Will RF normal or pierce ever outperform elemental shots if a monster is weak to the element?

depends on the monster

pierce outdamages almost everything if the monster is long, but elemental only does a lot of damage if it hits weak spots. pick whichever is more likely to work for you.

Rapid pierce has annoying recoil,just use rapid-firing elemental shot and then switch to Normal 2/3 to finish off the monster.

Rapid fire pierce is not too good because the rapid fire has a recoil that's pretty much forced upon you and can't be gemmed out. I took down the Arena Rathalos with the lbg that had pierce up and rapid fire normal 2/pierce 1 and normal 2 was doing more damage over time despite having the pierce up skill.

Elemental shots are like normal shots in that they don't have recoil either when using rapid fire so they are very optimal to use with rapid fire.
