Precision (Precise?) Rifle feels Underpowered
I have to preface this by saying I honestly have grown to like the new weapon update. I have a few small but other than that it's really nice. On to the issue
The precision rifle feels like it does too little damage when compared to other weapons.
In a simple test (1 full magazine of all weapons versus 1 large grid light armour block), it turns out that the precision rifle can take as much health off of a light armour block in 1 magazine as... the basic pistol. Additionally, the precision rifle and the basic pistol are the worst out of all the weapons. (I listed the full percentage list at the end of this topic)
I like the niche that the Precision Rifle [should] fill. It has low recoil, and thereby good range, along with better damage. Unfortunately, the damage is actually worse than the basic rifle per magazine, which has similar recoil, and the only other benefit is a scope, which while admittedly somewhat helpful does not contain magnification.
Per shot, the damage is better (I'm not 100% sure how much better but it is better). The problem is that it is not enough better to outweigh the smaller magazine. I think even a small damage boost would be enough to fix this problem (or perhaps the problem could be fixed by normalising damage per magazine) but right now this really does feel quite underpowered.
Thanks all in advance, and I do understand if this is ignored, it is a somewhat personal opinion.
