I'd say that buffing strikes would solve the problem. Give them distortion field and burst laser cannon and they will do perfectly.
But most strikes already have Heavy Lasers, which are clearly superior to Bursts, having higher accuracy, damage, and MUCH higher range. They are the king of lasers for jousting and making runs at gunships and defense turrets.

I really, REALLY wish Flashfire (or any Scout) had access to heavy lasers.

HLC have much lower accuracy than BLC at their respective effective range. HLC is made to work between 200m and 6000m; BLC, under 2500m. One BLC shot hit for about 800-900 damage. One HLC shot hit for about 400. HLC DPS is at 706-662 in its best range. BLC DPS go up to 1017.

Learn your math before saying non sense.

Also, HLC has much HIGHER tracking penality.

Numbers don't lie, and the numbers on the Detailed Tooltip say that Heavys have a higher range, accuracy, and DPS than Bursts.

Compare BLC effective range (500m) with HLC effective range (over 2000m).... Sure at 4000m, BLC are crap... But they are meant to be used under 2000m

Yes, HLC has higher DPS (per tooltip) at 500m than BLC at 3000m, however BLC does ~300 more at 500m AND has a times lower tracking penalty (2% HLC v 0.5% BLC) AND 10% more accuracy (105% BLC v 115% HLC). In other words: let me see you hit something with HLC at 500m.

Numbers don't lie... If one knows how to interpret them. Just look at the average pay in various countries. Yes, strictly looking it is true, but you can't measure the standard of a country based on that.

See how he's in a thread about scout balance (albeit a crappy one) asking for scout buffs? Did he get you?
