Confirmed: dual strikers for my MAX to replace the useless pounders.

Dual striker + MAX + burst fire firing all 5 at once = Macross here I come. I just hope they put in spaghetti trails for the rockets

The lancer is like an AV sniper rifle.
HATED that thing when I was MAXing in PS1.
I was able to work with phoenix rockets somewhat better because you could see incoming rockets on the minimap... hope to Xenu they add that shit back.
With the lancer it was "pew pew" fuck I'm dead.

"waa my lancer with no drop off that shoots a fucking laser beam doesn't one shot infantry if I shoot their chest"

are you guys fo serious?

1.) if that was possible, the lancer would be used to kill infantry not vehicles
2.) why do you expect AV to 1 shot infantry? this is a good thing, all AV should not 1 shot infantry lol

I agree with number 1 and even number 2. But it seems that alot of people do expect AV to one shot infantry. At least based on the number of times people try to use rocket launchers in CQB.

The lancer is going to be a pain in the ass (to fight against) as it is.

They expect it to work in CQC because it works. I think it's stupid, if you get caught with your RL out you should really have a fighting chance, but whatever. Regardless, non instagibbing AV is good imo.

Not so sure about how the s1 is currently treated with damage application to MAXs
Lancer will be similar I suspect.
I have 4/5 Flak Armor on my MAX and I still die to 2 direct rocket hits. I've heard many people say that Flak doesn't help with direct rocket hits as well, although it does help with rocket splash damage. In addition, the Flak Armor tooltip says it reduces damage from "explosions" which is a somewhat ambiguous term (at least that's the wording I found on the wiki site - not sure if it's the same in game).
