I think lancer needs a bit of a nerf.
The way the game is played the class has no counter.
It's fast movement, medium armor, and critical's make it nearly unstoppable.

Lancer does need some fine tuning. I think the lancer's 'OP'ness is strongly dependent on the user. Should nerf the 1 hit crits on hev/guard and rate of fire.

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.

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?

I agree with a nerf. Just wanted to clarify it doesn't need a big nerf.


The most popular class should be able to take down a Lancer very easily. And even the 2nd most used class (which is mostl likely the Assault) can deal with them quite efficiently (4 grenades, melee and 2 flash nades kinda help).
It's just a problem if a Lancer crits you (and that's a big problem). Remove the critical hit and we can apply further nerf-options if it's necessary imo.

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.

Wow Great suggestion!
The running out of stamina feature would be an excellent choice!
I will have to think about adding that to the poll of options!

I feel like Zen’s idea is nice, and alongside that I think crits should be removed and the fire rate lowered a little.

If you’re talking about the version of Scout without the scope, maybe. Specialist is probably a better option, though it needs a few tweaks.
