So, I play a Commando healer. And I love everything about it except the complete and total lack of mobility. This is especially noticable in Huttball. Every other class has at least 1 way of either getting to their enemy or pulling their enemy towards them. With the semi-recent nerf to cryo grenade, we have no way of catching up to ball carriers. Every game I have no choice but to attempt to hold middle. Give me more roles than ball spawn guard!

I play a lot of light assault in PlanetSide 2.

You don't need to catch up, you're a ranged class. Ranged classes get no gap closer.

Sages/sorcerers. Gunslingers/snipers on a situational basis via rolling into cover. And whilst not technically a gap closer, the latter has multiple methods to keep a target from escaping.

Sneak.

That said, I wouldn't say it's a problem with lacking a 'gap closer' per se, it's just the wider issue of commando/mercenary lacking any real mobility in a game mode that all but requires it.
