Engineer vs Markmanship PvP-wise?

On my pvp server, I'm making my alt Sniper so I can actually engage in pvp, instead of using my healer, so I was wondering which would be "best" for PvP? I know that Engineer is AOE, while Marksmanship is Single-target burst, but I also hear that Engineer is more mobile. I'm just confused on the general subject, because I hear one is the best and another isn't, vice versa.

I don't know. Maybe you should play with the specs a bit? Respeccing isn't going to hurt you much or anything... oh wait.

Don't plan on playing my alt till another week or so. Need to get my Sorc to 50. Just trying to plan ahead of time.

I ose sniper at lvl 10. It turned out that cover system is vry hard to use in pvp early lvls coz u dont have defensive abilities like entrech and stuff. So i changed to engineer at lvl 15. Now engineer does alot of dmg as well at lower lvls. I use to spam iverliad shot and nades and knife atracks. I turned nyself into a mele range sniper. Never used cover coz u dont rly need it. Wen i hit lvl 30 i had alot of defensive and stun abilities and trust me, if u want dmg go marksman. So i switched back to marksman. It wrks amazing with cover combos. U have defensive abities. Ppl cant just kuck u out of cover all the time but its still hard but huge burst dmg pays off. Thats just from my experiance. Ppl may not agree with me.

Edit: ur going to live the 3k and 2.5k dmg + crits and and 2k plus crit is just normal for marksman
