The Lancer Assault Rifle is the workhorse of the Coalition of Ordered Governments armed forces.
It is the primary armament of Gears, and fires projectiles at medium range. This weapon is first used in Trial By Fire. The Lancer, unlike the Locust counterpart, is fully automatic as opposed to the burst fire. It has a smaller clip size, but is better than the Hammerburst in closer range situations since the automatic firing setting can cause more damage when all the bullets can hit.
One of the Lancer's most appealing features is its infamous Chainsaw Bayonet. It can be used to kill an enemy brutally and instantly with the acuminous razor blades of the Chainsaw. The Chainsaw is tipped with carbide compounds, and has variable torque settings. In multiplayer, this Chainsaw is a good short range weapon, able to kill enemies in one blow. However, a player should only attempt a Chainsaw kill if he has the element of surprise. If he doesn't, the Chainsaw wielder can find it very difficult to survive, let alone score a kill. Players should not use the Chainsaw Bayonet as a substitute to the shotgun at close range. #gears_of_war #gun #marcus_fenix #marine #soldier
