What are members thoughts on the retro lancer? I gave this gun a try a few games and just feel that it is not very accurate and sprays way too much. I am a fan of the hammerburst and will probably be sticking to that.

its a cross between a shotgun and an AR.. and its 100% true.. you can burst fire to be accurrate or hold the trigger down to shoot like a shotgun and rape up close

Thats cool. Maybe I will give it another try tonight and see if I can burst fire to get it a little more accurate. I would like it for up close battles instead of having to switch to the shotty real quick all the time

I use the Gnasher & Retro Lancer loadout.
The stopping power of the retro is too powerful to ignore and is fantastic when defending the high ground.

I dunno about this Retro Lancer I just got my first kill with it and it sure felt good but I think the chainsaw is better. Although meleeing with the retro is pretty good but other than that I prefer the original lancer

Wanted to say thanks for the advice. I used the retro lancer last night with your suggestions and it owned. That gun is no joke.

I changed my mind with the Retro Lancer I now prefer it over the chainsaw lancer (not tried the Hammerburst much).

I gave the regular lancer a try and did not like it as much. I played 2 games with it and that was enough. Retro lancer FTW

If you are a Locust and there's a COG charging you from behind you can't here the COG coming but if you are a COG and the Locust is charging you from behind you can here the Locust coming because of the roars and so have a chance to get out of the way.

Sounds a bit unfair to me. I'm sure the COGs make a noise when charging but last night playing as locusts I got stabbed a few times from behind with out any warning the COG was coming.

(oh and I'm talking about the Retro Lancer here people not a porn movie I've just re-read it lol could sound rather funny)

Both make the noist lol when they charge with the Retro Lancer but for some reason when I posted that I couldn't hear the COGS at all. Seems all fair again now. It's also a good weapon for Melee too Very Happy
