Again the Lasher wasn't "made to compete" with the MCG or the JH. It is effectively impossible to balance the MCG against the JH, because they are very different weapon types, never mind the Lasher. As I have repeatedly said IF the Lasher was turned in a LMG or a Shotgun type weapon (losing ALL splash and lash) THEN it could be balanced directly with either the MCG or the JH (but not both) and fair enough if you want that (although plenty of players like the Lasher as a suppressive weapon), but that's a very different kettle of fish. As things stand the JH is balanced against SHOTGUNS. The MCG is balanced against LMGs. And the Lasher is balanced againts...... well basically just ITSELF. You are just never going to get a be all/do all type weapon as the Lasher (i.e. the same as the PS1 Lasher 2.0 was) as the Devs aren't remotely that daft and understand what it would do to the game.
