I'm having a difficult time deciding which advance class to pick for my smuggler. i already played around with a Sniper which is fun and my friend made a scoundrel which he liked at first but then started to hate about mid game.i do like being a melee attacker but sometimes i want to go guns blazing when needed. so i thought i should ask the public what they think about the two classes. Hopefully it will help me decide which one to pick.
Lvl 50: Assassin, Sniper, Juggernaut, Marauder, Mercenary, Guardian, Sage.
In Progress, Commando, Smuggler, Sorcerer.

My scoundrel does a lot of guns blazing, mainly by staying back and throwing charged shots/sabotage charges in-between heals.

The scrapper spec probably has a lot of close-range attacks.

I've just levelled gunslinger to 50 and they seem way, way easier to level compared to scoundrel. I used sharp shooter tree + kept gear up to level. Plus pvp they seem completely awesome, ive gone sab/df hybrid build and its working extremely well so far.

Scoundrel I've found has alot more down time whilst levelling and a bit flimsey at lvl 30. I'm told that at the 36?? mark they really come into their own on the dps trees and I guess there probably isnt so many of them about because of this. Its also really nice been able to respec and dive straight into a flashpoint as healer if I fancy it.

Its down to you! Why not just make both

If, like me, you love stealth, go Scoundrel.

Just try to avoid humming the "Mission: Impossible" theme when sneaking past groups of enemies.
