The difference is fairly large. If you can use a sniper rifle over a blaster rifle, you should.

Elite War Hero Enforcer's Blaster Rifle dmg 336-505 (150 rating)
Elite War Hero Field Tech's Sniper Rifle dmg 454-555 (150 rating)

check on the PvP vendors in game for exact values (these are from Torhead). Sniper Rifles have a higher low end and High end damage spread when using the same rated Barrel.

Granted - if you only care about looks then it doesn't matter, but if you want to do the best damage you can - you need a sniper rifle.

This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My rifle, without me, is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless.

Ever since I started raiding HM TFB.. i've been using the Saboteur Blaster Rifle (I like the look).... In fact I haven't raided HM TFB with a Sniper Rifle yet... The last time i recall using a sniper rifle was when HM EC came out.

Does anyone know, off the top of their head, the difference in DPS between a Blaster and a Sniper Rifle?

Yes i would very much like to know what makes the sniper do more damage? because if you basically use the same barrel mod and enchantment in both then you should have the exact same damage if you ask me.

Hi mtanios!

I have parsed for many hours using a blaster rifle and never once sustained 2.2K DPS even with lucky crits. Last night for the first time i equipped a Sniper rifle and after a few tries on the dummy, i hit 2.2K. I loved how my S-311 Fusion Saboteur looked and so i never bothered to look look at the description and compare min-max dmg of the rifles.. Anyway, to answer your question yes the sniper rifle has more min-max damage compared to its blaster counterpart (as i had just found last night )


Here is a parse from last night:

Using a Sniper Rifle: 2223 DPS 5 mins http://www.torparse.com/a/133419/tim...717/0/Overview

Compared to 2168 DPS in 5 mins which was the most i could ever do using a blaster rifle with lucky crits and MANY many attempts (i can not find the logs at the moment..)

The difference is huge. DPS wise we are always supposed to use sniper rifles.same for commandos.

If you're on Jedi Covenant, my Vanguard makes those. I'll gladly pass off a few if you'd like one.
