The Lancer is a Human ground unit.

Lancers house a single, large, laser aperture. This laser, once focused on a single target, grows in power as it draws energy from reserve batteries. Effective against enemy structures.[2]


  • Avoid switching targets too often - Lancers deal more damage the longer they focus on a target.
  • Lancers fall quickly to large groups of small units.
  • Lancers are not very good at chasing fleeing enemies due to their short range and windup time.

The Lancer's beam weapon is replaced by a railgun weapon. The railgun shot deals damage to enemy targets within the path of the projectile.
GG Icon Tech Repair Subroutine Repair subroutine upgrade
The Lancer repairs over time while not suffering damage.
