Why are sniper rifles in the heavy slot?

Ever since the whisper of the worm nerf it has been garbage. So why is it still in the heavy slot? It should be moved into the special slot along with darci. It makes nonsense to have them in the heavy because they do not do as much damage as other heavy weapons. It made sense to have the whisper in the heavy slot when it had unlimited ammo(pre nerf white nail perk).

    • Honestly, I'm ok with Whisper being back to how it was in D1. It still works just fine, you just need to be more cautious about how frequently you use it (i.e. boss dmg). Players just got spoiled rotten about having unlimited ammo for heavy damage. Using DARCI as an alternative to Whisper is a great thing to. Special does come up more frequently than heavy and with the catalyst theres hardly any recoil. Rate of fire is superior too. Plus it lets me slot a heavy LMG as a good backup. I say keep it how it is and those that are unhappy, find a way to accept it because its not as bad as you think it is.

      • They do absolute mountains of damage compared to other weapons. DARCI can one cycle Insurrection Prime. A normal sniper cannot

      • Those Exotic Snipers are based around the fact that they hit like Trucks, that are filled with other, smaller Trucks. They hit plenty hard. Comparable with the Legendary Snipers in the power slot (Linear Fusion Rifles) Way harder than any of the Special Snipers that's for sure.

          Because someone at bungie had a brain fart and thought that it was a good idea at the time but for someone that played the first game it makes no sense at all. Sniper rifle should be in the secondary slot and nowhere else

          • Because it has the highest damage output.
