Ok, so as far as I know there hasn't been a patch to the game yet but I have noticed changes to the sawed off since Friday. I don't know if I am just imagining things but it seems the blast area and power have been decreased. I have literally shot people point blank and not killed them on multiple occasions. Whenever someone charges at me with the retro lancer I can never kill them, I used to kill them about 90% of the time before and it was my fault when I didn't. So am I crazy or has anyone else noticed any difference?

So long as the match you're playing is hosted on an Epic server, I think they can be tweaking the game mechanics without putting a patch through.

I think the sawed-off blast radius fans out. I'm not sure if it was always like that, but I just noticed it a few days ago because I hardly use it.

I know there is something different with it because it's my weapon of choice and I think I am pretty damn good with it but there is something off about it since Friday.

finally beat Beast (normal) mode w/randoms. Even managed to beat the last 3 waves w/just 2 other ppl...not sure why ppl would drop out during wave the later waves. we never failed and everyone seemed to be doing well.

I just unlocked the Onyx Lancer and I have to say it was not worth the time. Since the whole gun gets a black tint (like the Gold Omen) you could barely notice the liquid metal part.

heh...somehow i wish i was able to devote that much time to my gaming but considering i'm getting a lot more work, i can't complain. i'm still working on sos kills for the mutator unlock.

who knows, many the onyx wpns look awesome w/the onyx guard skins.

question:

me and my brother play on the same 360, under two different xbl gamertags. does anyone know if i buy the season pass will it work for him too when he's playing on his tag? i feel like i've purchased other dlcs for other games and they've worked for him, but just want confirmation before pulling the trigger, also because he's giving me $10 towards it so it's cheaper for both of us. thnx

I'd like to know this as well. I always let my brother make purchases on his Xbox and then I download them on mine but I don't know how the season pass works. I am guessing that once I get the season pass he would download them and then I would just go into account history and download them on mine but I would like to be sure.

Got to level 50 tonight, woo. With over 100 hours put into this game, and no (attainable) achievements remaining, I can feel my interest in this game dropping a bit. It would probably be a different story if I was actually good at the game, or at least improving, but I think I've plateaued at mediocrity. I think I'll mainly be going back to it for the special Epic Events and new DLC. Anyhow, it's safe to say that I've gotten my $60 worth out of it, heh.

@ ryu & PrarieDOG (and whoever else I was hording w/last night) - thanks guys, was a pretty mighty Horde experience. Sorry I had to bail after wave 32? I had to pick up the gf. Now I just need to go from 30ish > 50. Seeing fully upgraded sentries and ppl who actually use silverbacks effectively was a nice change.

Yeah, that was a pretty crazy game, we had one Level 100 guy at the beginning of the match, and another guy who was being a goof-off (chainsawing me and intentionally blocking my turret shots for the lulz, I guess) the whole time. That was the guy who got downed practically every wave too.

im surprised we got as far as we did with goofy playing...first couple rounds, since everyone was so jacked up w/upgrades I was like...i hope they don't think im a slacker, I just couldn't afford to repairs anything damaged yet. I'm glad I had a few waves where I got the point man ribbon and a bunch of cross map revives.

i'm enjoying cooperative modes in Gears more, I still don't have a good handle like some of the cover and evade ninjas i've seen playing this game. it's not even accuracy anymore, they just move around so quickly they seem to literally do circles around those who aren't very familiar w/the dive and cover system...I've even seen guys seemingly slide, hop, cover, dive and fire without skipping a beat. i feel once you beat the cooperative modes on insane, get the medals onyx'd there's always versus to return to...that'll always be fresh.

Finally beat the campaign yesterday. Boss battle was fucking stupid, hated it and I'm not looking forward to insane.

Does using mutators on campaign affect achievements? Also was there anything at the end of the credits? I skipped them.

Nope mutate away. If you want some help let me know. And I'll be damned if I forget what was in the credits.

My suggestion, which was given to me by another CAG here, do it on Checkout. There are so many areas where you can avoid barriers by jumping over short walls and shelves.

Also, you can always try hitting up random people from your 'Last played with' list. I had 2 friends and 2 randoms when we completed it.

beat beast twice today (granted it was normal) but it was with 4 ppl each time. Mercy seems very easy...mainly because when they fortify you can draw them out and into the open. No wires to hop or sentries to worry about. Also finally able to hulk smash the entire board w/the berserker...omg, she's the terminator.

I'm down for insane mode but I'm on EST and only after regular business hours.

Also down for some insane beast mode. Sounds fun.

TBH, insane horde mode sounds miserable though, hehe.
