Lasher is like miles behind the other heavy guns when it comes to 1 versus 1 engagements. Unless you're right in their face, in which case you may kinda have a shimmer of hope if you completely outskill them, you're pretty much dead. Anything beyond 5 meters the enemy can just ADAD or jump and half your orbs will miss due to their miserable projectile speed. Now I know, that's not the way to use the Lasher. You're supposed to use it in subnanite and melt a funnel/tunnel filled with noobs not realizing they're slowly dying. But I would really like a little more competitiveness to other weapons in direct engagements with someone shooting back at you specifically. This would be nice in small fights where you don't necessarily have the firepower backup to herald having a suppression only weapon. The other heavy guns can be used in small battles and big battles just fine, it's only the Lasher that's so ultra niche. My suggestion for improvement? Give it an ammo slot! The alternative ammunition type removing its explosive effect but increasing it's damage and bullet velocity so it becomes a viable mid-range kind-off in-between between a shotgun and an LMG. The damage would have to be near or in the 300's to be competitive (e.g. sub 0.75 TTK as it is now) and the velocity would need to be tripled at least.
