"Fire up your Lancers, Delta."
? Marcus Fenix, while training Benjamin Carmine
The Mark 2 Lancer Assault Rifle was an upgrade to the Mark 1 Lancer Assault Rifle, created with a chainsaw bayonet, increased precision, lower recoil, and bigger ammo carrying capacity compared to its forerunner. Designed during the first year of the Locust War by Professor Adam Jonathon Fenix, the second-generation Lancer shortly became the staple weapon of Gearing across the official workhorse of the COG and Sera.
