are you playing on gold? or silver with bad teammates? if not you really have no need to carry the widow.... I have widow III, and i've been recently running with a few of the same team mates that love bringing their widows.... I just bring my Mantis X, and sit on top of the scoreboard
If you have the salarian just zoom, cloak, energy drain + shoot, reload and repeat... Don't even need to invest in the "fire one power while cloaked" (take the 40% cloak shot damage instead) because you can get a power off and a shot off before cloak disengages.... even on silver enemies with shields (rocket trooper, centurion, marauder, etc) are a single headshot kill (thanks to energy drain removing the shields).... I just run Mantis X with piercing and barrel (don't need any other mods with 20 or more mantis shots).
I reset my salarian infiltrator last night and even at level 1 I had no issues topping the scoreboard on silver, and I'm playing with some very good guys (3 of us did the gold runs together, every map.)
By carrying the widow, you've got like 3 times the weight penalty (or something like that), and it equates to about 1 or 2 less shots on something large like an atlas, prime or a brute.
