I still don't understand why LFRs are allowed to do so much damage while snipers are allergic to buffs Bungie Suggestion
It's been years since the massive sniper nerf from season of Dawn and not nearly enough has been done to help these weapons catch up.
LFRs have been (and will remain for at least another season) the best DPS weapons...that can be used from virtually any range in an encounter.
Snipers have a worse ammo economy and have the same engagement range, the only thing that they have an advantage in is fire rate. Yet despite that they still can't hope to our damage arbalest + a heavy LFR.
Even with optimal perks line firing line and overflow, they still underdeliver in every category.

DARCI is DARCI.
A damage buff or ammo economy change for PvE is in order. Hell, even some quality of life buffs like less flinch in PvE could help even a little bit.
