All 'charge weapons' (guns) are now capable of holding their charge during a sprint, and as long as the user starts the charge, they are able to finish charging while they are still sprinting. This is a useful trait for the mobility of the user.
Using elevators and opening coop doors also does not cancel the charge, however hacking consoles and opening lockers will.
Sliding when you are about to hit the ground (from any height) is very useful for keeping your charge instead of losing it by rolling.
Lanka is the name of an island fortress in Hindu mythology. This fortress is said to surpass even modern-day structures.
The Lanka closely resembles a Railgun, by its charge mechanic and high damage, and is similar to a Railgun Moa's weapon, where it too must charge before firing. However, from the description it would seem to function more like a Coilgun.
