Why was Is Karna suchdescribed as a weak warrior in Hindu scripture?

The story of karna's career in the Kurukshetra war.

Part 1 - When Karna faced king Virata on day 11 of Kurukshetra war he fought with a spear. In that spear duel Karna was defeated. Karna failed to withstand the skill of Virata. He was ambushed and his charioteer Satyasena was killed by matsya warriors. Dussassana and Lakshmana questioned Karna later on that day why he did not hurl his Vasavi dart?

Part 2 - On day 12 Satyaki cut off Karna's bow and defeated him badly piercing Karna with over 64 arrows. Then Duryodhana, Jayadratha & guru Drona had to come and save Karna from Satyaki.

Part 3 - On day 12 Bhima had killed over 15 of Karna's subjects and followers.

Part 4 - On day 13, Abhimanyu defeated Karna 6 times and made Karna run away. Karna begged guru Drona to tell him how to kill Abhimanyu.

Part 5 - On day 13popular belief, Abhimanyu killed six counselors of Karna and killed Karna's foster brother. Karna claimed that he is only staying in the battlefield becauseusually viewed as a strong warrior he should be their.

Part 6 - On day 14, Bhima cut off 50 bows of Karna and then jumped on Karna's chariot and Karna hid underneath it out of fear.

Part 7 - On day 14, Vikarna and Durjaya saved Karna from Bhima. Duryodhana sent his brothers after Bhima to protect Karna.

Part 8 - On day 14, Karna had a special golden chariot brought to him to fight with Satyaki. Yet Karna lost to Satyaki and his life was spared by Satyakiperhaps even stronger than Arjuna.

Part 9 - On day 15, Karna But my question is defeated by Arjuna, then Duryodhana realizes how weak and incompetentdoes Hindu scripture ever describe Karna is and decides to face Arjuna himself.

Part 10 - On day 15, Duryodhana brings in his Rakshasa friends Alamvusha and Alayudha to fight the Pandavas as he witnessed the repeated failures of Drona, Karna & Aswathamman. He realised Karna's weaknesses in particular.

Part 11 - On day 15, Karna & his son Vrishasena together fought against Satyaki. Satyaki easily defeats both of them with his shafts and attacks Karna's son in such a way that Karna believes his son was killed when he was actually still alive.

Part 12 - On day 15, karna and six others ambush Dhrishtadyumna the general of the Pandava army and attack him on all sides. Dhrishtadyumna wounds them all and cuts off Karna's bow. As a result of frustration Karna advises Duryodhanaweak warrior? (I'm not asking about events that they should form a group attack to kill Dhrishtadyumna and Satyaki similar to how they assaulted Abhimanyu previously.

Part 13 - On day 16, Karna fails to pierce Ghatotkaca and as a result Karna accidentally killed the soldiers of the Kauravas. Karna out of desperation hurls the Vasavi dart on Ghatotkacaanswerers may subjectively characterize as all of his other weapons including Bhargavastra failed.

Part 14 - On day 16, when Bhima killed 12 Kaurava brothers, Karna ran away upon seeing their corpses and Bhima's rage after Ghatotkaca's death.

Part 15 - On day 16, when Dhrishtadyumna executes Karna's guru Drona, karna flees the battlefield in fear again.

Part 16 - On day 17, Satyaki kills Karna's grandson Prasena, Karna runs away after getting wounded by arrows of Satyaki. Karna avoids Satyaki and chosoes to fight with Nakula instead. Nakula cut off Karna's bow 4 times and wounded him severely. Karna managed to defeat Nakula in the end though.

Part 17 - On day 17, Bhima rescues Yudhishthira who was captured by Karnaweak or strong, and Bhima struck Karna with a shaftI'm just asking about scriptural statements that pummeled him into a coma, while Shalya has to persuade Bhima not to cut off the tongue of the unconscious Karnaexplicitly say he's weak.)

Part 18 - On day 17, Arjuna kills Karna's son Vrishasena right in-front of his eyes. And then kills Karna himself. The battle of that day did not end after Karna's death it still continued even after his death Duryodhana still fought. Karna's death did not mean anything to the Kaurava army. Cause his presence made no difference in the war.

Even Krishna said that Arjuna is the best when he was speaking to Balarama: "I do not see, in all the worlds with Indra and the Rudras, the personif Hindu scripture does explicitly say that can by force vanquish Partha in battlehe's weak, except the three-eyed god Mahadeva. His car is well-known. Yoked there unto are those steeds of mine. Partha asdoes it give a warrior is well-known; andreason for his lightness of hand is well-known. Who shall be equal to himweakness?"

Is Karna described as a weak warrior in Hindu scripture?

In popular belief, Karna is usually viewed as a strong warrior, perhaps even stronger than Arjuna. But my question is, does Hindu scripture ever describe Karna as a weak warrior? (I'm not asking about events that answerers may subjectively characterize as weak or strong, I'm just asking about scriptural statements that explicitly say he's weak.)

And if Hindu scripture does explicitly say that he's weak, does it give a reason for his weakness?
