The lancer feels useless in KOTH

I don’t know if its just me or is the ranked game modes just a gnasher fest. I’ve never played any of the previous gears’ multiplayer, so I don’t know if its always been like this. However, I feel like the lancer is useless compared to the gnasher. I never see lancers in the kill feed and I’ve yet to get a kill with it on KOTH. And i understand that most encounters in KOTH are close ranged but the lancer just does not kill fast enough to be viable in a game mode like KOTH. I’m just wondering if i am the only one that feels this way.

You really need to be targeted at the head in this one. Body shots seem to do nothing.

Takes probably two full clips to the body lol.
