There is no Flaming Retro Lancer? Atleast i didn't see the weapon skin for it in the Beta. Only Gold. :S
It says 'no info at the moment.' You'd assume there would be, makes sense. Probably some sort of GoW event sometime after release.

Gold Lancer, Gold Hammerbust, Gold SOS, Chrome Hammerburst, Chrome Gnasher shall be mine! I already have Aaron Griffin [MOG]
