LP = 3x size clip, more accurate bc not burst, more damage % is puncure, good for Grineer/Corpus Robots/Ancient Healers, but ~1/2 the damage per trigger pull of Sybaris.

Sybaris = ~2x the damage per trigger pull of LP, but 1/3rd the clip, burst fire less accurate, and less puncture damage (but more Impact and Slash, good for Corpus/Infested units).

They feel pretty similar from above. Similar sustained DPS. I think what's gonna make a huge difference is the headshot multiplier.

LP has 37.5% crit chance = 2.75x average headshot multiplier

Syb has 62.5% crit chance = 3.25x average headshot multiplier

Thus SB has ~18% more damage increase than LP when making headshots.

What's really gonna make a practical difference is the chance to get at least one crit, because that'll do 4x-8x damage, and it'll probably get a kill, so we really care more about chance to get at least one crit than we do about average crit chance. Here Sybaris has a much higher %age.

Assuming Point Strike in the build;

LP has a 10% chance at 37.5% chance to get at least one crit, and a 90% chance to get a 60.9% chance to get at least one crit, = 58.6% chance to get at least one crit.

Sybaris has a 1% chance of firing 2 bullets for a 86% chance to get at least one crit, 18% percent chance of firing 3 for a 94.7% chance to get at least one crit, a 81% chance of firing 4 for a chance of 98% chance of getting at least one crit. = 97.3% of getting at least one crit.

Basically it boils down to:

Latron Prime: Higher Damage/Ammo. Spikier damage distribution from less frequent harder hitting crits. Larger Clip = less time spent reloading. More Puncture damage, good for Gunners. Comes with 2 Polarities.

Sybaris: ~2.4x Higher Damage/Trigger Pull. More even Damage Distribution from critical headshots. Smaller Clip = more time spent reloading. More Impact/Slash damage, good for Infested/Corpus.
