It may not be able to 1 shot it, but I believe 2 crits will kill a recon.It's kinda "weak" against the most popular class: Recon (because Lancer can't oneshot them (Assaults can melee, Medics can shotgun, etc)).
I agree with a nerf though. Just remove Critical Hits then it should be fine imo.
I agree with a nerf. Just wanted to clarify it doesn't need a big nerf.It may not be able to 1 shot it, but I believe 2 crits will kill a recon.
It one shot's heavy, and guard with the crit.
2 shots every other class except for commander.
Name one other class where the primary weapon can 1 shot anything?
Or where it has medium armor, and maximum move speed?
Wow Great suggestion!I think making crits only apply to heavy armor would be good. Also I think the lancer should run out of stamina faster than other classes if it is going to run so fast with medium armor. That way you can't really rush with the lancer because you run out of stamina too fast.
