The Lancer is a fully automatic rifle, delivering a surprisingly high level of accuracy (even at range) with a good amount of damage. The Lancer's ammo and clip capacity both are the highest of the standard machine guns. Plus, it's got that chainsaw, for awesomely brutal close-range executions.
The Lancer is not the most powerful rifle in Gears 3's multiplayer, and it takes almost a full clip of bullet to put down your opponent, but with a high rate of fire and high accuracy, it can keep enemies at a distance. A simple tip to learn is whenever you are going to use the Lancer's chainsaw for close combat, hold down the B button and tap like crazy. You never know if your opponent is planning to do the same thing, and most likely you'll enter into a chainsaw duel. Play it safe, I say.
