The RAMS .50M, Longshot and Parallax all have identical stats: Damage: 800 (the other bolt action sniper rifles do 750 damage) Rounds per minute: 40 (the other bolt action sniper rifles have 46, 49 and 55 respectively with lower range ones have faster speed) Bullet speed: 650 (the LA80 already has 650 bullet speed, whereas the SR-7 and V10 have 600. The other bolt-action sniper rifles have 550 and 500 bullet speed for the long-range and short range versions). The TR unlockable pistol TX2 Emperor had its damage increased from 112 to 167, bringing its dps to 1113 which makes it worth unlocking if you prefer a semi-automatic pistol over an automatic one. TL;DR: the new sniper rifles give TR and VS a higher bullet speed rifle. For NC it's a downgrade. The unlockable TR pistol isn't gimped anymore.
