Are there five people who want to do Insane Horde this weekend with mutators?

I'd be up for that. It would need to be at night though.

I'm down for insane horde, i dont have all the mutators though but really only the host needs it...I'm also down for hardcore horde, or even normal/casual from 1-50 so I can get that no fail medal or whatever it is. it'll have to be at night as well.

the last game Ryuu invited me to we breezed through 19-31ish despite one guy apparently thinking it was funny to stand infront of sentries and turrets.

I would do insane Horde this weekend. I have instigib and the reload mutator. Still working on unlimited ammo.

Those are the two I have as well, and I know I am less than half-way to unlimited ammo, but I'm not sure if that's essential.

I'd be more inclined to want to do it at night, if that's when others want to.

Is there a map that's best for this? I'd think Checkout to avoid Brumaks and Seeders, but I could also see Checkout's tight setup being disastrous for the higher up waves with enemies and explosives.

Overpass? With Super Reload I could see a Brumak going down easily, especially with 5 firing on it.

I could help with horde on insane this weekend. I have infinite ammo, instagib, and super reloader. I've already beaten it on insane but I need all the other onyx medals in Horde. Its pretty easy on Overpass. Buy the command post up top, only buy/upgrade the fences at the bottom by the steps and have one guy buy/maintain a silverback.

Yeah, that sounds like the best strategy.

I have all the upgrades maxed out, so repairing and upgrading the wires and Silverback (and turret and sentry, if needed) shouldn't be an issue if people without the upgrades want to give me (or anyone else with the upgrades maxed out) their money initially to get those up early.

We'd also probably have to come up with a system of agreement about the Loot Challenges.

I've gotten a Brumak on Checkout before. Twice, in fact. Never had a seeder in any boss wave ever though. Did you mean Reaver?

Yeah, I've had a Brumak on Checkout too. It was sweet because he glitched on a low roof and couldn't move. Do you mean Gunker rather than Seeder? I've had them on Checkout too.

I meant Reavers, but I was unaware about Brumaks on Checkout. Good to know. I just assumed that the small indoor setting would've prevented a Brumak from being used on that map.

If there's 5 people that are ready to do this, I'm definitely free this weekend to get it done.

Hey guys feel free to add me on xbox live for any and all gears action. I am usually on daily between 10pm-2 am PST.

I am ALWAYS on to boost the other medals, but Thats the times I actually play.

Word is that you get a black and orange weapon skin for this weekend. I'm at work and I have not been able to play today. But keep an eye out for it and if any one has seen it or has pic link it up!

If you get halloween theme'd wpn skins, is it's only for the event or do we actually get to keep it? a jack o lantern inplace of the cog gear skin would be pretty sweet.

It is being said that it's just for the weekend & that you only see the halloween skins over the Flame skin set (you need to have the flame skins equipped to see the weekend skins)

if you can't perform a fire ball motion, they most likely won't hold onto the game after they beat the campaign. I stopped sending them CAG like deals and/or codes for stuff.

as for triggering bad memories...you can take them out on some trick or treater's tonight in the gears event. :hot:

Tip, while 3 players are on insane, have the 4th on Casual in campaign, have them run ahead and kill everything. It makes this super simple.

i didnt know individual players can set their own difficulty in arcade...does the guy set to casual still get credit for insane completion?

On Arcade, all players have the same difficulty. No exceptions.

And no, the Casual Player gets credit for beating it on Casual.

Different difficulty settings only works in Standard campaign.

But it's not too hard to clear Insane on Arcade legit. Just keep joining games until you get a chapter you still need. Half the time you join when they are 5 seconds away from finishing the chapter anyway.
