The weapon of choice by the COG during the Locust War as the idea of having a chainsaw bayonet on a weapon was inspired by Tai using a chainsaw out of desperation in combat. Another weapon designed by the late Adam Fenix in the first year of the Locust War and later being mass produced into service. The Lancer was proven efficient in combat during its prototype phrase as it easily managed to cut through a Locust's tough hide and consider to be a improvement over the Mark 1 Lancer Assault Rifle (Retro Lancer).
