Don't know if this is the right place to post. Anyway, on PTS you can see the Mando rifle in the collection, looks cool, but it should be a sniper rifle and not a blaster rifle. It's even classified as a sniper rifle in the series. Please BW, make it a sniper rifle.

I don't see what utility that would offer. The only class that can use a sniper rifle, the sniper, can also use blaster rifles. The item is usable by a wider variety of players if it's a blaster rifle.

But some skills are not usable with blaster rifles.

Edit: Okay that's weird. I remember sniper skills being unable while using a blaster rifle.

Yep, I remember that too! But clearly they changed it at some point. I only noticed when I started sharing the new renown gear across my legacy and saw that my sniper had all skills still available when using a blaster rifle. (Since my best blaster was higher rated than my best sniper rifle, I thought "no harm if I lose a couple of skills until I get to 306," but it turned out I didn't need to lose any skills at all.)

No but you lose alot of damage because the sniper is way better then the blaster rifle
