The trademark weapon of the COG military, the Lancer is a fully automatic assault rifle that's perfect for short-to-mid-range combat. It's chainsaw bayonet is a powerful melee weapon that takes out most enemies in a single blow. New uses for the Lancer continue to emerge, with recent reports of "chainsaw duels," which combine the chainsaw attack with traditional sword fighting. It can also be used to cut a path through overgrown areas.

This unit was poorly constructed, and glued together. It arrived either damaged, or faulty assembly, with the targeting sight already hanging off, and wide open seams between components that should be sealed together. I think I will RMA this item. Serious buyer's remorse.
Gun arrived in good condition, didn't have to use any pennies or paper clips on the batteries. The magazine holder is pretty snug and takes a little pressure to remove it. Overall, i think it was a good purchase, something my friends will bug me with for a long time to come.
Working at a game company that has quite a few Gears of War fans, this thing was a hit. It looks just even better in person than the pictures. The sound is produced not by some speakers but an actual rotor within the gun, explaining the steep battery requirement.
However, the sight has been broken in shipping and the seam that attaches it to the rifle appears a bit flimsy. Nothing a little glue can't fix, but it makes it fall just short of five stars.
The gun arrived in perfect condition, and earlier than expected too. Looks great and will make a excellent trophy to hang on any wall. I would absolutely recommend any fan of Gears to purchase this collectable. Added bonus of chainsaw noise to annoy family and friends for years to come.
All I can really say about this Gears of War Lancer is that it is awesome. I am so happy I got this while I could, and while it was available on Amazon.ca. Keep putting out the great items, and keep shipping to Canada!!
