The Outer Worlds is a wonderful RPG, hearkening back to the kinds of experiences that other Obsidian titles provided. Just like other titles, almost any sort of character build is possible in The Outer Worlds. However, many players are leaning towards a stealthy, sniping type of class. Unfortunately, the best snipers aren’t immediately apparent, as there are several factors such as damage, range, and customization to take into account. So, here is our pick for The Outer Worlds best sniper.
The Outer Worlds Best Sniper | Which Sniper is the best?
The Outer Worlds offers players a ton of variety through a wide and varied collection of weapons. For those that enjoy sniping, the Long Gun class of weapons provides several viable options. However, it can take a while to get to the best guns.
The Outer Worlds’ best sniper depends on where players are in the game, and how much they value stealth. Below are three choices for the best sniper depending on where you are in the game.
The Hunting Rifle is the first available sniper in The Outer Worlds. With a DPS of a measly 53, it’s far from great, but it gets the job done. The stagger effect is a nice bonus as well. Just be sure to make shots count.
Sublight Sniper Rifle
The Sublight sniper rifle is leaps and bounds ahead of the Hunting Rifle. It has a DPS of 270, and is a true sniper rifle. It’s slow firing, demanding a decent amount of distance between it and the target. Also, it can bear the Whisper mod, making it virtually silent. It can be found in Fallbrook’s at the Dry Goods Store.
The Pink Slip is one of the best weapons in the game, and definitely among the best snipers. It’s DPS comes out to a whopping 473. Sadly, it can’t take more than one modification. When used in conjunction with the Sublight sniper rifle, there are few enemies that can’t be beat. It can be found in Byzantium, through the Forsythe Luxury Munitions shop. Here is where you can find the Pink Slip location.
Now that you have an idea of the best snipers in The Outer Worlds, get out there and start sniping.
