Haven't tested yet on Lv30+ Grineer, but Dread + Corrosive seemed to work well in Lv20~25 Grineer:

Yes it is, if you like bows and like to snipe. but if you want to be the best sniper you could be regardless of the weapon, then the answer is no, get the vectis and throw it the potato.

With my potatoed dread and his two base polarities I'm criting for 35k vs grineer, and it's far from being maxed (without split chamber). In T3 the crits are about the same because you probably would have some buff like roar o mprime, and it's enough to one shot heavies in the last wave.

 

just in case

I have a strong feeling that these super high crits we keep seeing are a bug in the damage system.

Corpus DO take full damage from slash, or at least they've got barely any armor. I still use dread since there aren't a lot of sniper weapons that use slash damage and I'm not too keen on sticking Nova in the path of level 30 chargers and the cryopod.

I have to agree... critting over 14k with my Latron Prime is... unlikely to say the least.

Out of the bows I tried so far, Despair was the most fun.

 

Have to try this new one yet, but bows are not for me in this game. e.e

Despair is the Stalker's throwing knives.

I think you mean Dread?

It is.

 

My synaspe does not do 10k dmg per hit.

Why would anyone use a bow vs a swarm of angry, fastmoving infested? Thats illogical.

 

More so for the Ancients than the swarms, but you've still got thunderbolt.

It still rips infested to pieces. And it's probably good against low-level Grineer (I haven't tested it myself, though).

they have the same crit damage bonus now.

I don't know, 150% looks pretty different from 200% to me.
