Pulse rifles feel grossly underpowered in the Crucible. They deal the same damage-per-shot as auto rifles and have greater recoil, as well as generally smaller magazines. Granted, they do carry more total ammunition- and usually have higher firerates. I feel the RoF is negligible because of the time between bursts. With the pauses, their DPS evens out with auto rifles- but they have terrible recoil and wimpy magazines. What do think would even them out? I think that they should either have the same/lower recoil compared to autorifles, or no pause time between bursts to make use of their RoF.
