Just finished all 50 waves of Horde on Insane - thank god for the mutators!

...the only thing left now that will take any kind of skill is beast mode on insane without failing - the rest is just a matter of time!

650 matches of Wingman down......getting about 60 done every 24 hour period.


How does your 360 not explode?



I have a spare just in case

...and I tend to give it a couple of hours off each day. Once i've got 3,000 matches of each game type down i'll stop leaving it on overnight. It's only taking this long because of shitty game modes like Wingman. Execution and Warzone can be done after a few days.

Torque Bow tag was quite fun.

Think I'm going to punt this and get Batman though.

Yeah, it really wasn't all that hard, as long as you all play tactically. Tickers, boomers, berserkers. Sorted.

I tended to go with the Bloodmount (against my team-mates pleas) and managed to mop most of the COG up. They seem to ignore you and the random firing from the hammerburst softens the enemies up nicely. On trenches it was easy enough, there were a couple of times we got down to 10 seconds left on the early waves but once you unlock the higher tiers it gets easy.

It's so ridiculously unbalanced. One minute you can blow someones head clean off with a shotgun, the next you can't kill them with an entire clip. Every idiot jumps around with the Gnasher and it's just a pain in the arse.

Indeed! Gears of War multiplayer close quarters combat is shot gun battles ... it has always been this way. In my opinion it's fixed in this game especially compared to GoW 2 which was buggy as hell for a long long time. Now when ever I get blown to bits I may flip out but yeah I can see my failure, rather than the games.

With practice I've got so much better. I think whats annoying is that especially in gears of war in the campaign the lancer is king so I never used the shot gun, but in multiplayer the shot guns used much more in rush downs etc so it's used so much more.

Yeah, shotgun proficiency is key to the MP. And like yourself, I also have become so much better with it since Gears 2, although in Gears 2 that could have been the server issues, and I was always brilliant. Just not on the scoreboard.

Just got the season pass - i've always bought all Gears DLC so I figure I may as well save some cash in the long run.

Absolutely, that and timing your wall bouncing perfectly to avoid getting hit as well as quick kills on the fly. Tbh I don't think the sawn off ruins anything, most veteran players I suspect will stick with the Gnasher because the sawn off just takes too long to reload. It's the shotgun battles that keep it unique from COD, as you can't just stand from afar and pick players off every 5 seconds. It dare I say it takes a little more skill? But at the same time I can understand why it might be frustrating to players who have only started with Gears 3 or never played Gears 2 multiplayer - some days you used to come up against a MF who seems to be able to wallbounce off everything without getting hit and taking everything out in the process, which I do think was related to the bugs and glitches of the multiplayer back then which they've largely ironed out now. The multiplayer is a vast improvement. Although I miss submission, that was my favourite MP game from Gears 2!

I'm always up for some horde, especially on Casual to get my medals up

(I can turn insta-gib and super reload on as well if I host)

Cool. We'll have to arrange a time. When's best for you?

I think it's hardcore weekend at the moment so casual isn't an option but I think we'll be able to do it after tomorrow.....

i'm on every weeknight so if you see me online just throw me an invite, I don't have any plans so if i'm on Gears i'll just be boosting and i'll leave and playing horde.

Even if it's just the two of us with super reload on casual it won't take long at all to mop up whatever waves you have left

Way too many cutscenes in this game, constantly cutting up the action and pace. Game hasn't got going at all.

I'd be in for some of that if I'm around. I've reached Wave 37 (before the rest of my team pussied out).

I'm in there. I've got two weeks off work now with nowt to do. Loved it just not had chance to play for ages.

What's all this about the game freezing or something? People having issues. I've had nothing apart from the achievement glitch that fixed itself eventually.

I think there's also an achievement you can only get if you haven't played any of the previous games. A zero point cheevo, but still...

Chojin do you just leave the game on whilst you go to work?

How does that help you level/boost etc? Am I missing something here?

Rather than play 3,000 games of each gametype you can just set the minimum requirements and leave it going. It's a lot less time consuming than actually playing. Same kind of deal as 'Party like it's 1999' from Gears 2.

I'm now 20 medals in out of 65. It's a true test of how much of your life you're prepared to pour into an achievement. Getting 6K kills with each gun takes so much time. I've set myself a target of twelve months so I should be done by the end of 2012.
