Don't get Sniper. Go with the Split Beam. That is what I use in STFs, and it is far more effective than the Sniper ever was. To make matters even better, the Splitbeam has the same range as a Sniper, but has a slightly better DPS!

I successfully completed a 2-man CSE, ISE, and KASE.

Twinkers nods his head in approval.

(Hey, I may be an STF neophite, but even I recognize Split Beam > Sniper)

Still, in the end, it is my funds that would be used to buy said item. If I want the sniper, I'll get the sniper. I have gotten 1k+ non-crit shots on enemies with a sniper rifle.

[6/24 23:12] [Combat (Self)] Your Thalaron Pulse deals 126254 (48978) Radiation Damage to Tactical Cube. Hehe. Suck it Borg!
[10/8 15:47] [Combat (Self)] Crystalline Entity deals 98082 (147136) Kinetic Damage to you with Warp Core Breach. WUT? I blame Kurland for this and all other problems in STO.

With all of these concurrencies, I'm surprised there are so many cat fights on the station.
