Sniper vs Marauder Dps?

How do the Sniper and Marauder compare to each other DPS-wise in Warzones?

I know both are solely DPS-oriented classes, and it's probably BW's intention to make them similar in DPS output. But assuming a skilled player has both a 50 Mara and Sniper, what would he get the highest damage with on a regular basis?

Or is the difference negligible?

I'm leveling both a Mara and Sniper, and like both playstyles tbh. Not sure on which one to focus if my goal is just to get highest possible dps in WZ's. I know DPS numbers are not everything (ie. u can get 600k in a WZ and lose) but I'm just a sucker for that dmg, don't judge me

This is a good question. Obviously Sniper is squisher, but the Marauder is more difficult to fight with, things to keep in mind.

by all logic, Marauder should do more DPS since it's a melee class and does not have the comfort of distance that the sniper has. Bioware stated that they want all DPS specs of all classes to be at most within 5% of DPS from each other. No idea how this is in reality.
