i have no idea what happened to the original title

Anyway it's DECISION time. I pikc hammerburst all the time myself because it's so crazy powerful, you can pretty much own anything at mid range, and because not many people seem to appreciate it online so of course they are always taken aback at the speed with which they got downed. Lancer feels like a pea shooter in comparison, even though it has a chainsaw.

I lol at shotgun whores complaining that the chainsaw has no "skill", when the shotgun had a giant dinner plate sized reticule which you have the laborious task of moving on top of a giant, slow moving enemy, from a distance of 2 inches. Pick up a sniper or a hammerburst if you want to preach about skill

Lancer has the incredibly overpowered chainsaw.
But as a gun, the hammerburst is far more satisfying.

LANCER! VRRRRRRRRR!

I mainly used Lancer the entire game, just for the fact it has a chainsaw

So you've moved on from elitist Halo douchebag to elitist Gears 2 douchebag?

Ah, but the chainsaw takes no skill. At least with the shotgun, you can kill people from mid range or stun them if you know what you're doing. Chainsaw, it's just hold down b button, push left stick forward, and pray.

I'm just saying if people weren't so intent on using a shotgun there'd be no reason to complain

How about the Hammersaw? That isn't an option? Fuck. Even though I use the Lancer more (perhaps I'm just lazy to switch weapons before the match starts), I do prefer the Hammerburst over the Lancer. What is more satisfying? Headshotting somebody with a hammerburst, or cutting them up with a chainsaw?

...wait, I think we know how that last part will turn out. Damn it!

Regardless, Hammerburst all the way!

That should be an option!

Lancer! It has a chainsaw! Need I say more?

The hammerburst does have headshots on the other hand. Still, Lancer gets my vote.

An option for "Hammersaw:"

Hammersaw could be a Hammerburst + Chainsaw. The devastating shots of the hammerburst, and the...chainsaw.

Hammersaw could be a Hammerburst shooting out small pieces of the chainsaw blade. Need I say more?

I use the lancer more, but the hammerburst is quite useful.

I picked lancer, just to show no love to the hammerburst

Chainsaw Bayonets, amirite?

#21 Posted by Dauragon (554 posts) -

I've grown to love the Hammerburst, but since I play Horde mode more I tend to go lancer since the chainsaw tends to come in handy when things get super heavy.

Lancer for sure.
