All of the above, except the Lag, either check your graphics settings or upgrade your PC.

As a VS on Briggs, the Lasher is definitely a suppression and diversionary weapon. TR and NC troops take unnecessary risks taking out the easy to spot (and not so easy to kill with medic support) Lasherman, often revealing their position for return fire by VS snipers, MAXs and Engineers.

The Lasher is also an excellent spotting weapon for revealing cloaked infiltrators and enemies behind cover. VS troops learn to watch a Lasherman spraying, and when he fixes on a position (often just on hitmarker feedback), you'll see a lot of other incoming fire as well.

The Lancer fire is not easily distinguished from MAX Vortex cannons, the difference is they're paired (left and right Vortex) there are much more of them (Vortex has a large magazine than a Lancer).

As for the flares, no, they're just for show.
