The Custom Lancer is an upgraded version of the Mark 2 Lancer Assault Rifle made by Marcus Fenix with several design changes, such as a more angular positioned magazine without a lock well, a slightly longer barrel, extra affiliation lights placed around the weapon, a more rearward ejection port, a wooden stock, and a flashlight attached to the right of the barrel. Like its predecessor, it has an integrated Chainsaw Bayonet. It was put into service sometime after the Lambent Pandemic and the Locust War.


The Custom Lancer is a legendary weapon skin for the Mark 2 Lancer Assault Rifle. It can only carry 50 rounds and hold a maximum of 500. The flashlight is not included.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • In early gameplay trailers for Gears of War 4, the Lancer was referred to as the "Lancer Mk. 3".[1]
  • The Custom Lancer in the campaign for Gears of War 4 is seen with a stock included behind the grip. In multiplayer, however, it is only seen as a Legendary weapon skin for the Mark 2 Lancer.
  • Unlike the Mark 2 Lancer in Gears of War 2, the Custom Lancer carries 60 rounds per magazine.
