I was pretty angry during the 20 tries it took me to beat him... on Casual. :cold:


im trying to play through the 2 previous gears on and off, I heard RAAM was quite the boss. hopefully towards the end, I'll be able to recruit some veteran help and make him fertilizer.

LMAO.

I cant wait to wreck shop against humans with RAAM. I believe the procedure goes... Lift, Stab, Throw (repeat)

I hope that the controls & cam for RAAM look and feel like the heavies & Kantus in beast

RAAM could kill Dom just by looking at him funny. Gears 1 on Casual was 100x harder than 3 on Hardcore. :lol:

Gears 1 played really fast Vs. 2 & 3

Just have someone be a decoy while the other person moves for the Troika on the far opposite side of you. Let him unleash the Kryll on you and just hold down the trigger on the Troika. He'll fall into chunks faster than the Kryll can fly to you.

I still occasionally jump into random Insane Cooperative games to help people for just this reason, as AI Dom is too much of a liability, and not many people play that game anymore.

But the hardest part of Gears of War is driving the junker on Insane...especially in Cooperative. If there's one thing Gears of War 3 did correctly, it's not having a driving sequence.

@the ebbtide - yeah...i'm not up to that part yet, I just got past the berserker, when I need a break from 3 I go back to 1 and eventually 2. thanks for the tips though. i'll look for you on the battlefield when the time comes.

There is also the RAAM glitch where he gets stuck by the block, i think thats how i beat it on insane. I really cant remember. Me and a friend beat RAAM recently and it was easier than i thought. Just load up on torque bows and nades!

Yeah, if he gets stuck it's a sign from the Allfathers that RAAM must die.

Or lose weight.

I could never get the troika option to work although I only tried a few times and it seemed impossible so I just did it the old fashioned way.

Oddly enough I only died once in the junker mission on casual when I couldn't tell where the kryll were coming from. Not once on the harder difficulties. After hearing all the horror stories about it I was ready to crush a controller in rage, but musta gotten lucky.

Don't forget the longshot as well.

where are these codes for the beta unlocks coming from? damn Epic saying there'd be no way to get them if you didn't play the beta


also Gears 1 Insane... must have wasted over an hour on Raam. I told my friend it lets just stay withthe lancer at him since he was sniping and I was using boltok/lancer once the shield was down. lancer only would have worked but was taking too long and we died eventually. I then told him lets go find a torque bow... he grad torque and a longshot while I had longshot and lancer. The torque takes out the shield and literally within 2 minutes the credits were rolling :applause:

lol tl;dr. Use a torque bow on Raam's shield.

Beware: The Gnasher of War 3 remarks are actually funny now because they ARE true!

Strictly Gnasher and Snub Pistol w/ Infinite Ammo and Must Active Mutators. SOS scrubs and rifle enthusiasts were warned. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a permanent classic playlist without Retro and SOS in the future. If only Epic would admit what type of game play made their multiplayer popular in the first place. Hmm...

I like the gnasher and pistol playlist, I don't like the random 1 person every game with the sniper gnasher though.

How long does it take to go from 1-50 in Horde? I'd like to get a group together one night and complete this mode, the farthest I've ever gotten was wave 37 with some random group and I'd love to be able to finally get the achievement.

Would also like to do a 4 player coop run on Insane and Arcade mode sometime.

I thought you could start a horde match from any wave so you don't have to go from 1-50, essentially you could start at 37-50 and hope to finish.

Takes probably 2.5 - 3 hours with a halfway decent group. You can get the achievement just by finishing all of the individual waves over different sessions, but there is a ribbon for finishing 1 through 50 in one go.

I still need to do 1-50 on Insane. With infinite ammo and the active reload power up, it makes it easier, but I can never seem to find anyone wanting to do it.

That is freaking awesome and I'm glad they are doing stuff like this. Also, anyone else miss the picture capability from Gears 2?

EDIT: I might be down for an Insane Horde run. I have the Infinite Ammo mutator and am 4 wretch kills from getting Instagib.

took me just over 5 hours with one other person. a significant amount of that time was spent getting wrecked on boss waves 30, 40, and 50.

I really hope a headshot uses the splattered fruit sound from the ones sitting around old town.

I also miss the pic feature. Down for insane horde as well.

I may have played conservatively cause I heard the grief about the last boss but I had little trouble on my first try on hardcore. What exactly was the deal with it? Spoiler tagging an answer would probably be best.

The ghost camera is horrible, its difficult to even point at something to tag it. One way its so slow, the other direction is too fast. Why didnt they make it the same speed all 4 ways.
