I concur with upgrading your rifle at every opportunity you get. Sometimes it's not bad to wait 1-2 levels, rarely 2 levels to be honest

The level 48 rife from Voss is ok looking. But I do think the rifles srites so far that I have seen need way more love.
Damage range on orange rifles scales with barrel upgrades which armstech can make, so u can easily get on the trade network.

There is a generic rating (at level 30 I have rating 70 I think) which scales the damage based on weapon type. Armour plating does the same thing for orange armour based on the rating, armour piece, and type (heavy), so for armour this means that while u do need heavy armour or you lose a percentage, u can get an early set and use it the whole game, rifle too. Modable ones only though.

Just picked up the E-115 and that doesnt look to bad. Reminds me a bit of a meltagun from warhammer 40k.

Are there to many guns in teh game? The idea was that they would be modable and I like that idea, but with so many floating around its just easier to pick up a new one every few levels.

Barrel mods definitely upgrade your min/max damage, I'm still using the first orange rifle you get on Ord Mantell and it's as good as a regular 43 blue.

I went with a costly gamble to see how the Agent rifle looked like, which you can find on the Commendation master in Balmorra. It's a Cunning stat blaster rifle. It looks like something from the future :P

Visually my favorite so far is from the Comm vendor on Tatooine but I got one the other day that looks so oddball I had to carry it just because it was so weird. Its the rifle from the final boss of the Cocoloid War Games flashpoint. The thing is HUGE, looks bigger than a sniper rifle and it dirty white with blue circles on it. However, its a blue so you can't upgrade it.

Oh yeah, post screenshots of your blasters, so we don't have to guess what they all look like based on the tiny pictures.
It doesnt look exactly like one, but its just what I was immediately reminded of when i saw it. (im kind of a gun guy i suppose). Its called the N-416 rampage x-forcer.

Heres a quick pic in low quality http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w...lkoop/n416.jpg

QFT.

I vendored my level 14 PVP weapon but went back to buy it later to compare all the PVP weapons and quest rewards.

Mods FTW.

I have that. It looks like a misshapen sawed-off shotgun.

A-52 Rancor-X Carbine. Level 48 required, bought at the Voss commendation equipment vendor. Hands down my favorite looking blaster rifle I've found; to me it looks how a Star Wars blaster should.

It's basically white with orange highlights, and has a scope on top. It uses the same model as the blaster rifles Imperial troopers usually carry.
That would be this one right here (screenshot): http://cl.ly/0W11092t3s3p151a273d
