Gears Weekend: BoomSnipes return for Halloween!

Gears of War 3 Halloween Weekend BoomSnipesIn this Halloween playlist, the default weapon loadout will be changed to, you guessed it, Boomshot and Snipers. Weapon drops in the maps will be a mix of the two. We’ve had a lot of fun and carnage with this playlist during previous events! NOTE: You may need to restart your console to see the changes.

You will also be getting special Halloween weapon skins; the Trick skin for the Lancer and the Treat skin for the Gnansher. In the BoomSnipes playlist, the Pumpkin Heads make a return and for you Horde fans, BEWARE THE BUTCHER. He is out for blood!

The 3x XP will also continue, and the ribbon has changed so be sure to play if you’re missing any!

Let us know what you think and share your stories in the comments below. For fans on Twitter, join in on the Gears of War 3 and Halloween conversation by using the hashtag #GearsWeekend.

Ticker Tuesday is Live!

Gears of War 3 Ticker TuesdayHere they come! Today is Ticker Tuesday and we have added boatloads of Tickers in Horde. We have to give you fair warning though, don’t get too close!
