Tactical Analysis

  • Hunter Seeker: Lancers are fast infantry units designed to charge and disrupt enemy infantry defenses. The Lancer is decently armored, and is capable of absorbing fire on the way to its target. Unlike most Assault Infantry, the Lancer is not range limited, and has an effective range equal to or even exceeding most standard riflemen. However, closing the distance will increase the damage dealt by the Lancer, and reduce the effect of enemy cover. The 40mm HV GLs also sport impressive range, however their lock on times tend to be long when used at their maximum effective range. They are effective against enemy vehicles, or for clearing out suppressed infantry.
  • Blinding Strike: When Lancers get to point blank, they can release toxic noxious fumes around themselves. The acrid black smoke effectively blinds and significantly reduces the rate of fire of enemy units. In addition, a flamethrower also lets them toast anything left standing, as well as torch infantry in cover.
  • Golden Assets: Take note, Lancers will also take module damage, and can be immobilized or disarmed. In addition, they are rather expensive, and ultimately vulnerable to heavily armored enemy units. In addition, their machine guns and grenade launchers have limited vertical traverse, and cannot hit air units.
