A high-end masher will obliterate anything. SMGs are the best weapons overall, especially on a siren where her fire rate goes absolutely through the roof.
Sniper rifles are soooo much fun in SP...especially with the heavy elemental burning effects and the area explosion on crit effects.. and once you get used to it nearly every shot is a headshot.. played this to death with all DLCs and 2 playthroughs with a sniper character. elemental blast was clearing areas with a single headshot and volcano gave enemies a mile away free dancing lessons btw for people that didnt enjoy play2, wastelands, and just going around without doing specific plot quests was very enjoyable.
