The cone of fire is extraordinarily forgiving in this game, making aim required very little. Lasher is immensely more difficult to use because it actually requires you to not only aim, but also lead your target. In an environment where people heavily warp and have unpredictable movement, this further increases the challenge.
Again, I have to reiterate, the Lasher isn't hard to use, it's just not the insanely trivial weapon the JH and MCG are.
The Lasher is great against MCG users pointblank because it takes out the "hard part" of the Lasher at the same time as fighting them at an effective range.
Yes indeed, this is more accurate explanation of things.
As for "people heavily warping and have unpredictable movement" this indeed also makes the Lasher seem hard, but there is the thing, People who are heavily warping have a predictable pattern. In order to "warp" correctly, you HAVE to follow a certain pattern, and this pattern happens to coincide with the fire rate of the Lasher
. The time it takes them to warp from one side and then the other is exactly the same as the fire rate of the Lasher. So, if you start shooting at him directly in the middle of his strafing pattern, by the time he goes to next side and back to the middle your next shot will be out and in his face; the same will happen over and over until you or him dies. So all you need to do in order to counter straif warping, is to not move your aim away from the middle of his strafing pattern unless he stops straif warping if he stops it's easy enough. This technique of course is only necessary if he is warping and you are fighting at mid range; if he isn't worping he will be moving slowly enough to ame easily, and obviously if you are too close you won't have the ability to shoot in the middle of his straif pattern; besides if you're close enough you won't need to.

Ineficiance, is the bane of my existance.
Better to die, for the nubs that don't try.
