From: Bhellium | Posted: 6/10/2012 10:12:29 PM | #007 Any list with a harrier deserves an Indra right there next to it. They're practically the same gun. The Indra has like half of the DPS of the Harrier
Alex Smith Turnaround Tracker: 406/681, 4918 yards, 7.2Y/A, 32TD, 7INT, 93QBR, 17-5; Playoffs: 36/68, 495 yards, 5TD, 0INT, 101QBR, 1-1
On paper sure. Natural scope+decent ammo pool+sniper mods changes the equation. And it's more like 70% anyhow, even if you aren't counting its lighter weight and better accuracy/recoil. Or the ability for Infiltrators to stack 40% on it.
So if you take mods, and what each gun can afford to use into the equation they come out basically equal. Hell, I'd give the edge to Indra just because the Harrier gets so ammo screwed, as well as the GREAT scope on the Indra. Seriously, makes headshots a breeze, doesn't zoom in too much, and the Indra naturally doesn't have nearly the spread a full auto Harrier does if you're not using the scope mod.
Look at it like this... a scoped Harrier with stability mod handles basically the same as the Indra with a barrel and piercing. With less ammo and significantly more weight. Even if you give the Harrier the barrel and piercing as well the damage difference isn't noticeable on mobs, it's much less accurate, and the Harrier can still get dangerously close to empty from unloading on a Brute much less a Banshee.
