When shopping for weapons with my Musketeer, I noticed that the double guns do more damage but the rifle gun sometimes comes with a card. So, I was wondering, which one is better

Hi there! I personally chose the twin pistol over the rifle only because of the animations. What i belive the main advantage to rifle over pistols is range. rifle have a longer range because of the longer barrels. (which i am sure most people already know) Anyway, I have found twin pistols that have carded abilities, and rifles that dont, so it really boils down to damage output and range. other than that I think the twin pistol animation when you jump into the air and barrage an enemy with gun fire is pure epicness.'

Rifles will also have better range, which will carry over to any of your trick-shot powers, as well.

Plus, a snazzy looking rifle looks so darn cool. I want to see even more rifles and bows and crossbows, but right now, the designs seem really limited.

I would love to eventually get my Musketeer a rifle that looked just like Bonnie Anne's. Or very similar to it.

The difference is also on damage type,for example in Moshuu the double hand crossbows do physical damage meantime rifles do magical damage,by knowing this you could switch weapons depending on wich enemies you are faing and their resistances.
