Vacuum Tube Shotgun vs Vindertech Sniper Rifle

 

Vindertech Sniper Rifle is definitely an Epic Vindertech Weapon and makes use of Energy Cells. Sniper rifle that fires a potent bolt of power that maintains damage and accuracy more than long ranges. Deals energy damage which is fairly successful against all elemental enemy kinds.

 

Although Vindertech Sniper Rifle has larger damage and impact than the Vacuum Tube Shotgun, I'll pick out the shotgun just because its a shotgun that doesn't use shells. Which is often good for Raiders.
