played 1-50 on blood drive. it's fairly easy to play thru when someone (good) gets a silverback, and the rest just support that player. mostly with flamethrowers for berserker boss fights. the rest is pretty smooth sailing.

I just played horde, blood drive on casual with me and AFK 2nd controller. Though i used mutators too, got to wave 50 and died, so i quit. Forgot i had instant melee, oh well. Thats 49 Point man ribbons! :D I think im 45 waves away from a gold medal too.

Well seems Epic sunk to a new low, that Map Pack that was just released, turns out it was on the game disc :roll:

People whining about having to do their job is annoying. Hence you no longer have a job and people buy most of their reading materials from the internet. Fuck off and go work at McDonald's now.

Best Buy managed to out-Gamestop Gamestop. Good show. :applause:

I'm pretty sure this was known before the game released or around its launch.


I just can't believe they gave or are giving a map pack away after pushing their bullshit pass.

oddly enough I got credit for 2 warsupporter ribbons today...not sure why but I'm not complaining. Makes up for not getting one for the ticker event that wasn't an event.

Can anyone explain what counts towards silverback leveling? I know I put 75+ into one during a match of horde and I didnt more than 20-25 in credit. Some money was given to me by a teamate and some of damage I repaired was when the team mate drove the Silverback

I am not sure what is triggering it. 2 of us on one console are getting it. Play match, wait for medals to show, back out to stats menu, look at medal page, rejoin new match., Rinse and repeat. However this is not working for another person on a 2nd console playing by himself so it might be a YMMV

You NEED the DLC for the glitch to work.
Here's what I did:
• Local Party
• Warzone with 1 round & 1 bot & 1 min
• Select Azura (it's a DLC map)
• After each match you get credit toward War Supporter. No need to back out to the main menu, just keep playing.

ENJOY :D

1,000 waves of Horde later, gold medal, and big head mutator unlocked. Now to get to onyx medal i need to play 1,000 MORE waves of horde. O_O

Im only 3 horde challenges away from onyx

Yeah i pretty much guessed the DLC was on disc when the download was so small.

Lol, what did you expect? There's no "legit" way to get it without playing in Epic events.

Digger/Boltok mode is pretty awesome. I like how they keep doing these types of events to help me get better at each weapon and unlock executions for them.

That trick didnt work for me. I followed your advice, idk if you meant local party as in more than 1 controller, or just local MP. Oh well i will get it the legit way.

I changed my party type to "local" (press the back button at the main menu).
People are talking about it on the Epic forums. You can try to go there for more help.

Yeah i just played some more, its like you have to avoid title waves of diggers at the beginning, its insane!

Im not going to try to boost the epic event medal, not worth risking a ban over. Im just gunna get that XP, and make it to 100 before this double XP runs out!

So double XP is in effect? I went 10-2 and only got 4900 points. Most of my games before double XP i would get at least 3000.

Not really digging the digger event, too many times ill roll away and be 6+ feet away and still end up blowing to bits. Its just not fun either, its like all you do is try to evade all the digger paths coming in.

Damn i need to start playing ranked TDM, i just got to level 94 tonight. Shouldnt be too much longer till i hit 100. The XP started racking up more once i hit the 1,000 match bonus. But man Diggers are so annoying. Its like i evade and im 6 feet or more away and i die. Then i shoot it at someone and it just passes them up even though they are RIGHT THERE! IDK man, i think the best word to describe Gears MP is "inconsistent" for real. I also had matches tonight where guys where walking through my active gnasher shots. Its so random and annoying sometimes.

Crazy, i seen a guy using the medal you get when you have 30 onyx medals. Seriously bro? I still have only 10.

I am actually loving the event. During this event, I actually got better at using it. The key with the digger is predicting which direction they will roll when hearing it and shooting there. On a level like Gridlock, I tore it up (not host) and got my first MVP award; I am just average so a big deal for me. Can't wait to see what next event holds...

As for people complaining about loadout, I think the amount you start with is fine, especially since you still have the gnasher and the boltok. It's not like you can't pick up more from the weapon spawns or from killing someone.

I played a few matches last night (TDM) and I'm still only at 6. Is the Digger event the only one giving them out?

No all game types including local private matches are working but the catch I noticed while doing side to side console comparisons is the need to be the DLC and that dlc has to be on the original xbox 360 that it was downloaded on to work. I tried moving my GT to another 360 and redownloading the dlc and it was no go but I was able to get 4 different gamer tags to work on the 1st condole including 1 silver account.

Yeah i ended up unlocking the war supporter achievement today. But i read on twitter that an epic guy said you wont be reset, they know its messed up, and they are trying to fix it. So now that i got that medal, there is nothing stopping me from getting 3.0. :D


PeteNub Peter Knepley
@GearsViking @ijinjo no we won't be resetting people, it's unfortunate but at least it's giving extra instead of not counting :)

PeteNub Peter Knepley
@GearsViking @gearsjunkie I don't believe we have a workaround yet. @EpicCog and CrazyHomer are on the case
