Lucius MK3 Lasgun Bayonet attack Change idea

Any chance Lucius Lasgun Helborne MK3’s bayonet slash could be made more horizontal? As in, you swing completely horizontal with the weapon so you can knock back and slash multiple enemies with it. As it stands, it recovers slower than the MK1 and MK2 from its slashing animation, vs their stabbing animation. I think the slower charge and fire rate on the Lucius MK3 could seriously benefit from its bayonet slash cleaving multiple enemies or at least knocking them back or staggering them.
