"They told him he couldn't mount guns on his feet. He didn't listen."
The Lancer is a common unit unlocked in Glacier Gorge.
The Lancer is basically an upgraded version of the Grunt, but at the cost of increased combo power and and gel cost. Due to its increased stats, it is classified as a high health and medium damage unit, being much harder to kill. Like most other point damage units, the Lancer is less effective against armored units.
The Lancer's achievement is:
Destroy troops with the LANCER.
The Lancer's medium damage will one shot low health units such as the Boomer or Grunt. These units may be protected by hardier units, so additional help is needed to escort the Lancer to the backline. For example, Phantasmo can move those units out of the way.
