I know there is a lot of chat about rage burst being too strong (it is).
With sniper - it’s just doubly ridiculous; You don’t even have to get close to use it.
You have effectively
- infinite range
- perfect targetting
- 1000+ hp one-move
it makes killing the scylla in the pandoran (lair/citadel??) trivial, as well as killing anything else on just about any mission.
just banning rage burst from the sniper rifles would bring a lot of balance - and it would make sense in a story world as well. There is a difference between a weapon you line up carefully to fire between heartbeats and one where you just pull the trigger and hold it down.
alternatively - rage burst could just massively nerf the accuracy. If you’re going to use your sniper rifle like a machine gun - then it’s going to aim like a machine gun.
