Ah, the Retro Lancer. My favorite weapon in the Gears series, now. In the wrong hands it's nothing but an annoyance to other players to be squashed, but learn how to use it and it becomes a weapon of terror and carnage :D

Two ways to use the Retro Lancer:
1) Spray & pray (incredibly ineffective)
2) Fire in controlled bursts (devastatingly lethal)

Not a weapon for those that have no clue about recoil or an overly itchy trigger finger - they'll never hit anything (and probably bitch about it).

Personally, I find it a great weapon to prevent Gnasher and Sawed Off opponents from getting close enough to one shot me.

The hardest part about the Retro Lancer is finding ammo for it. Things listed in the article are very obvious imo. Shoot extremely short bursts with it and learn to use the run execution effectively and you're good.
