I've been trying to determine the optimal Soma build (for me) to use. Assume all mods are max rank (unless I specify otherwise) and can fit. Here's what I have so far:

1) Serration

2) Split Chamber

3) Point Strike

4) Vital Sense

5) Piercing Hit

6) Cryo Rounds

In addition to these mods I frequently use Rifle Ammo Mutation, only pulling it for shorter missions. With this in mind, I would like to know which one mod and which two mods I can add to my build to maximize DPS. I unfortunately do not possess sufficient knowledge of game mechanics to calculate it myself. As far as I can tell the contenders are as follows (with notes and questions):

Hammershot - extra critical hit damage is always good

Hellfire/Stormbringer - would be swapped back and forth when used with ammo mutator, both could potentially be used without it

Speed Trigger - faster fire rate, but how much does ammo efficiency suffer?

Heavy Caliber - a mod I still lack. This would not necessarily be used at max rank. The max damage is crazy high, but is there a rank at which the damage is worthwhile yet the recoil is still manageable?

Critical Delay - extra critical hit chance. Does crit chance past 100% even help?

So which one/two of these mods would give me the best DPS? Is there a choice that is superior despite lower DPS? If my list is missing a better mod let me know. Thanks in advance for your help.
