The Light in the Dark is a rare world drop from any creature below level 20, and features the Ignited II perk which makes it effective in PvP against Heavy Armor. The Brightwood Sharpshooter is awarded after completing a series of quests in the Brightwood Settlement. It's a versatile PvE weapon with bonus damage to the corrupted. Lastly, the Orichalcum Musket is a craftable weapon by Master Engineers, and is equivalent in power to the most powerful dropped muskets. It features the highest possible base damage, a gem slot, and 3 strong perks.
