I know that they need to do something to unlock the flaming retro-lancer but It said exclusive skin that makes me think more of a skin set. and not just one gun. Plus a month to get it. got to be something better then that.


yeah just like gears of war 2 level 100s reward... right? Oh wait. Yeah its probably flaming retro.

I just need doorman, aficionado, and force multiplier and I'll have all the onyx medals in campaign. Then I can start working on Beast mode. Seriously 3.0 isn't going to be nearly as hard as it originally seemed especially now since there suppose to be fixing the Vengeful medal.

Anyone interested in doing beast mode for medals? I figure with a group of 3-4 dedicated guys we can get all the oynx medals in a week or 2 if we do beast mode at least 10 times per day.

You are going to have hard time with the Onyx Allfathers Medal (3,000 matches of each gametype). I don't know how you are going to do it without going idle, since Epic may ban you for that.

i'd say, hire a sibling, roomie, or independent contractor to play your account while you're away dealing w/real life issues...I've come to accept somethings are either just not worth the time and effort or just impossible to achieve. i.e. all of DDR's achievements.

I'm just gonna keep idling matches. If Epic wants to ban me so be it. They can only ban me from playing online and you dont need to play online to unlock Seriously 3.0 so I don't really care. Also Im pretty sure this was said just to scare people just like when Microsoft said they would ban people who use unofficial HDDs and when Sony said they would ban people for using homebrew on their PS3s both of which never happened.

If we're doing Gnashers only for this event, I hope we eventually get an event that is rifles only, no shotguns at all.

I guess it is a scare tactic. I remember that people were supposed to be banned for the level 100 glitch in Gears 2. I don't think that happened either.

When they say "Gnashers only", I think that means sawed offs are not allowed.

Well damn idk what to do. I mean usually they make some kind of announcement about what would get you banned. Then again this is epic, so who knows.

Someone suggested Cluckshot special event on twitter the other night, that would be pretty hilarious to play. :)

you figure, it's better to not say what is bannable so ppl won't try their best to work around it...sometimes just the fear of being banned for questionable activity works for a while. it's only a matter of time before the word gets out what will get you banned, how often, etc. Reach was a good example, ppl figured out that you wouldn't get banned if you only idle boosted FF every few games. I suppose if everytime you did everyone actually tagged you as quitting early etc it might speed the process.

I see this as a soft control to help others who aren't as efficient at boosting medals to catch up in lvls etc. in the end, whatever floats your boat.

I wonder if the gnasher even will be an event that counts towards the achievement. hope they include that info for all events from now on.

saw this guy w/the golden hunter and a gold medal as his lvl...the guy pretty much carried his team every round. I almost felt bad I wasn't contributing until about 4 matches in. whichever team he was on, they always one except once. bleh...never saw someone stick and move so much, almost felt like I was playing in slow motion.

a lot fun nonetheless.

Dude. I already have like 85 hours logged into this game, and it's only been a month. I'm addicted. I even kind of suck online (0.8 K/D), but it's still fun.

Is the Retribution ribbon unlocking for anyone? I clearly met the requirements a little while ago, and it didn't unlock.

New expansion DLC announced. This time it's single player campaign (3 hours), 6 multiplayer characters, and a "Chocolate Weapons Set." The DLC is part of the Season Pass package.

http://kotaku.com/58...-chocolate-guns

For $15 on December 13, you'll be able to add three hours to Gears of War 3's storyline campaign by downloading a new expansion to the game called RAAM's Shadow. You'll also be able to play as a bad guy in it.

The creators of Gears of War 3 spilled details on the second big downloadable content release for September's Xbox 360 exclusive today, promising that RAAM's Shadow will add more than three hours of gameplay through a mini-campaign set after Emergence Day, the event that triggered the war that has been raging through the three Gears games. Emergence Day preceded the events of the original Gears of War by 14 years.

In RAAM's Shadow, you'll be playing as members of Zeta squad, including Michael Barrick from the Gears comics, Lt. Minh Young Kim from the first game, Tai Kaliso from the second and a new character named Alicia Valera. Players will also play as RAAM, essentially taking on the role of one of the end boss of the first Gears of War as he storms a human stronghold.

The $15 expansion will also add six characters to multiplayer, an opportunity for 250 Achievement points and the Chocolate Weapons Set, which is presumably a silly, alternate array of guns for multiplayer. Yummy!

Those who bought the Gears of War 3 season pass will get RAAM's Shadow as part of their pass.

Sounds pretty good, can't wait to see the chocolate weapons.

Also, since all of the Horde Command Pack content is already on the disc, but the stuff in the subsequent DLCs apparently isn't, I guess we're going to start seeing compatibility packs for Gears. I wonder if they will be mandatory or how that will be handled.

I'd imagine they'll have to be mandatory. I don't know how else you'd do new multiplayer characters in a game with someone who doesn't have the DLC. I guess they could just make the new characters Marcus or whatever from the perspective of someone who doesn't own the DLC, but that wouldn't be advertising the new DLC to people who don't have it yet. You'd think Epic would want people to see other gamers playing as Kim, for example, to encourage them to buy the DLC.

Street Fighter IV's costume packs were the exact same issue, but they're optional. I'm not even sure Microsoft would allow mandatory compatibility packs. Title updates are mandatory but there are strict limits on how big they can be.

it's possible MS gives more flexibility for their exclusive titles, i.e. Halo and Gears.

Only pics i see is this backshot of RAAM

AWESOME! I think its cool to see 6 new characters, and a 3 hour campaign at a time before RAAM dies. I was hoping you would be RAAM though, and see his side of things. But still this is more exciting than the horde command pack for me. As for the chocolate guns, how is that going to look any different than regular black guns? LOL

There apparently is a part of the campaign where you play as RAAM (why all caps anyway, what does it stand for?) and wreck shop on some humans.
