12GB eh? New characters and new map, but the player continue to camp with this lancer. In gears 4 you had nerf and remove my hammerburst for its power, now the my patience is over in gears 5 for the lancer, nerf or remove this lancer now TC I’ve lost the patience, this isn’t a gears of war this is gears of duty.
Not sure what your frustration has to do with the download size. Maps and character textures take drive space. Nothing really debatable about that.
I get your feelings about the weapon running though. I’d say you’re definitely not alone there.
