Having tested this with a full War Hero PT in my guild, Rage/Focus Guards/Juggs burst harder.

I've tried this with Vanguard, Guardian, Scoundrel, and Gunslinger.

Gunslinger is highest burst by far. Charged burst + Sab Charge + Aimed shot + Quickshot can kill someone in 5 seconds or less.

Having a Valor Rank 60+ Gunslinger and (before 1.2) Guardian, I'd say the Gunslinger is by far the better of those 2 for burst. Guardians were great when we could focus bomb groups but it was still situational (heavily grouped up people/mobs) and you could do 5-7k damage in one hit to everthing in radius (force sweep). Now that number is around 4-5k at best and it is one of few really powerful attack as a focus guardian. Gunslinger just has so many powerful attacks, and you can fire them off very quickly (frontload dmg) to take someone from full HP to nothing in a few seconds. Sentinels from what I've played are great at sustained high DPS but they are lower burst than either of the others (obviously not counting focus sentinels as they are the same as focus guardians)... not so sure on shadows bursty-ness.

I'd say Pyro's simply because they have the ability to burst much more frequently.

The fastest I've killed someone as a sniper is

Snipe >> FollowThrough >> Ambush >> Take Down.

Nah, it's not PT/VG, its definitely sniper or GS, even at lvl 20 I could kill people in a few hits, the explosive probe + ambush takes like 50% health off and then snipe and the 30%- health damage skill kills so fast.

Assassin and shadows can do ok burst with deception (middle tree)
