Platform Nation brings to you today some helpful tips on the weapons and how to make them work for you. This will surely assist you in dominating your opponents and I am sure these tips will carry over on the weapons and their usage in Gears of War 2 (November 7, 2008).
LANCER: The Lancer is a mid-range to long-range weapon. If your enemy is closing in on a special weapon (boom, torque, sniper, etc) aim for the torso and particularly in the legs to knock them down. When the enemy is down, reload the Lancer and begin shooting them (hoping this is a 5 second revive execution game…which I play) and as the bullets hit the player, they will not do damage, but as they stand up they will instantly go back down. Reload the Lancer and do it for a second time, killing your opponent due to the third downing.
