A huge part of that is Orbital Strike on adds adding extra DPS on top of his single target damage. Only snipers and slingers have a Cast-it-and-leave-it AoE (orbital-flyby). Upside is it ticks for damage (on adds) while you go back to doing your single target DPS (on the boss). Downside is it stays in one place (orbital) and relies things to remain underneath it.
