Well i have to admit that i love the gunslinger and he is (together with my sentinel) my favorite class in the game!

For a couple of weeks ive been trying a 0/21/20 (Full DOT/AOE) specc and if you play with the right setup this is just pure fun. And its extremly deadly too:

I just broke my sentinels dps record today with 1089 DPS and a 870k of total damage - that was one crazy fight and im not even fully modded.

So to everyone who thinks that snipers/revos are underpowered i can only say that it is probably the rarest class in pvp and therefore there are not many very good players. But a sniper in the hands of a good player can be as deadly as a marrauder or vanguard (if he runs with a capable healer)

GS/Snipers are perfect. BW... Do not nerf... Do not buff... keep your meddling hands off of them please.

(Except DF/Lethality... feel free to buff those poor bastards, if there're any left).

I 100% agree with this statement.
Jekana - 55 Sniper(Eng/Leth) | T'vor - 50 Powertech (Shield) | Docfeelgood - 44 Sorc (Healer)
Jnx - 37 Gunslinger(SS)

I've heard there are worse snipers on the Bastion than me, but I don't believe it. I elevate being a scrub to a whole new level.

Sniper/GS is for sure the most balanced class in the game.

I haven't seen anyone complaining about Sniper/Gs being bad
I currently have a 41 sniper and I love it, though it does get a bit boring only being able to DPS all the time.

Maybe full optimized aug'd WH is a big, powerful tool, or my eng sniper is op lol. When I go up against any single opponent, and I want them dead, then they're dead.

GS/sniper class WAS underpowered.

It was utter crap compared to powerhorses in the game launch.

But then, powerhorses were nerfed here and there, but GS/sniper was only buffed, buffed, buffed.

Now GS/sniper is just a good playable balanced class.
