No shotguns??? why would I want to play gears with nothing but lancer spray?

Actually, it would be Hammerburst spray for this playlist. The rifle is tweaked to be more powerful too.

Its GoW3, not GoW 1 or 2! Go play tdm not a special playlist.

Gears of War 3 and Battlefield 3.

Top disappointments of 2011, Modern Warfare 3 and Uncharted 3.

people underestimate the rifles in Gears 3 (well they did in gears 1 and 2 as well) - ive got 70%+ of my 3000+ kills with the lancer, and ill back myself against anyone in a close range battle with my hipfire lancer against their shotgun. an active reloaded lancer can down someone in about 6-7 bullets, and that only takes a second to hit.

lately ive even been getting abusive text/voice messages telling me to use the shotgun cause im a "noob".......despite me finishing the match without getting a single death, and 20+ kills, all from the lancer. pro tip: if someone kills you 10+ times and you cant even kill them a single time, its not them who is the 'noob'.

the lancer, in the hands of someone who knows what theyre doing, keeps people honest. you can take out people who just charge/wall bounce to get close and shotgun in 1-2 seconds, and you can take out big groups of people with the one clip in quick succession.

this hammerburst only playlist, well i dunno. the hammerburst is awesome when you know how to use it, but not my cup of tea.

Then the people u been killing dont know how 2 use a shotgun haha.
