Gears of War 2 multiplayer is awful
They did just about everything they could to ruin the great parts of gears of war.
Proximity mines: Someone has a sniper but you are better than him? You rush him while going through cover. Not in gears two. Now you just set up a couple proximity mines and you can be a terrible shot, they either have to walk carefully to get to you or they can blow up. At minimum, get hurt enough that a single sniper shot will down you. Bum rushing is no longer a strategy, either. Not only that, the match usually ends with completely terrible shots with the most points because they just put mines in random places.
Chainsaw: In the original gears, the chainsaw was definitely not a hard weapon to use, but it was also an easy weapon to avoid. A simple stray bullet would stop the user. Not anymore, thank god, a nearly fatal shotgun shot won't even stop it.
there are many more things ruined in the new game, such as the lancer now even stopping roadie runs, and turning the pistol into basically a nurf gun.

Proximity mines are a pain in the beginning, but you eventually learn where people usually set them up and then learn to avoid it. Still, it can be quite a pain when some unpredictable players are in the game. It's not a game breaking feature IMO, but it sure is annoying at times.
I agree 100% on the chainsaw issue though. The only way to really stop it is to engage in a chainsaw duel, and even then you never know if you're gonna win it or not. I did notice you get stunned if you get shot and THEN start to rev the chainsaw which is just annoying.
I personally think it's a good thing the lancer has some stopping power, it makes cover all the more valuable. In gears 1 people were running through the hail of bullets like it was nothing. I rarely ever use the pistol (except for the boltok pistol) so I can't comment on that, but I can imagine it would be a bit overpowered if it was as powerful as the lancer and you picked someone up as a meatshield or used a boomshield.
