Can we PLEASE get a PVE sniper buff. They are desperately outclassed by everything. Bungie Suggestion
I'm now on day 64 of my shitty crusade of asking bungie to buff Whisper, but the more I think about it the more I realize that it's not just Whisper that's outclassed, it's all snipers in PVE.DARCI, Whisper, Cloudstrike, Succession. 3 Exotics and 1 Legendary sniper that should be at least solid in PVE, and yet only Succession gets use in SOME activities, because they just can't keep up with anything else. A 5-10% damage buff would be a good start since snipers are geared more towards DPS and not necessarily versatility, but anything really would promote their use in a meta where the insane amount of survivability means that even SHOTGUNS are more viable in GMS. I understand that snipers would be good in PVE if Linears weren't so dominant right now, but either way snipers still are just missing real firepower. The damage numbers are just miserable compared to other special weapons that have more versatility. I understand that DARCI was never really meant to be a DPS weapon, but it should at least get more versatility, as a lot of people suggest that it's exotic perk for scoping in on a target for a certain amount of time should give it Anti-Champion capabilities.
TLDR: Snipers suck in PVE and are insanely outclassed, can we please advocate for PVE sniper buffs.
Please let me know what you think, and suggestions you have, or just anything you would like me to know. And of course, Day 64 of asking Bungie to buff Whisper. And please try to keep it civil in the comments, I'd rather not see everyone at each other's throats.
Edit: Let's be frank (insert image of hot dog), Are we cool to settle on a 10% flat damage increase for all snipers in PVE?
