         This. LOL! You learn every day… but kinda feel stupid for not knowing… But i’m glad they fixed that: “After a host migration in Horde, the waves will no longer go past 50″. It happened to me once! I thought: Wait… did they extended the waves? What the hell… haha!

      I see they finally do something about sniping and not fully telling if you’re in obstruction, hopefully it will fix a lot of the super corner snipes.

      It’s annoying, but doesn’t hurt anything since it is still a bot.

      I think I see a typo.  I was expecting balancing in the update, but np.  My onyx Gnasher doesn’t care.

    • Wolfpackguy

      Nothing on the broken hitboxes?

      • Big Ben

         Well, they can’t exactly tell every player this, so allow me: It’s not a hit detection malfunction. It’s either lag, or, to be frank, you simply lack aiming ability.

        • Taichou44

          If you believe that I feel sorry for u…there is most certainly different hit boxes

          • WolfBlade52

            Really? All the “hitboxes” are the same. Epic is not that stupid to have altered hitboxes. It’s obviously lag or you just can’t aim. Simple as that. ^_^

            • Whatup

               No, they aren’t all the same, do some fucking research before you spew your shit

      • Vegetaryan

        Rod Fergusson said that they knew the hitboxes weren’t equal but didn’t care enough to fix it

    • iiNsAnEvXAng31

      But the real question is: is the gnasher fixed? can i actually point blank enemies and get a kill?!. THAT my friends is the question.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZVJBVEPICJZ5NGNPO2MRS4JSS4 Zach

        It happens to me a lot but I can never do it to others. It makes me go, ARGH WTF! :)

    • Matt Guggenbiller

      FUCK YEAH!!! But the longshot thing will take some getting used to. and i LOVED the spot on hotel… lol oh well

    • luketaliana

      and WHERE IS THE RESET RANK GLITCH/BUG?When will you fix it i was level green 62….and now i am lvl 1
       

      • Davidrafuse

        dont boost and u would not have been restt simple as that

        • luketaliana

           how do you boost?

          • Shinobikillaz

            nah its a legit bug not boosting

            • luketaliana

               so why wont they fix the rank reset?im so pissed by because its my favourite game ill still play it

            • Some random guy

               It’s not a bug that will ever be fixed. The did it on purpose to stop people glitching their rank and now they keep it in because people who get reset play for longer and are more likely to pay for extra maps.

            • Br0k3nL1m1ts

              yeah, but it still killed my will to play when I was reset to zero from almost lv. 80. It feels like shit having to earn all your medals and other stuff all over again.

            • Henrik Lugn

              Even if you would start over again you cannot endgame. Some of the onyx medals is broken due to the database error that occured.

              For you other noobs that don’t know what your talking about, saying this is a boost bug and that this is a intentional bug. It’s pure incompetence, fixing an error like this takes about 15 minutes if you know what your doing.

              If you have this bug, your game freeze. It also makes your game freeze more often. It happens atleast 1 time within 50+50 waves of horde. If it don’t happen during that, your probably not YET affected by this bug. But you will, and when you are you will cry like a baby, i promise.

              Tip: When it happens, open the disc tray and xbox will unfreeze, start from same memory that you did last time and your daily progress is not completely lost (does not work all the time though).

        • guest

          da hell dude it has nothing to do with boosting cause i saw my brother play normal rank we went to eat and when we came back he was lvl 1 reseted everything….

        • A sad sad panda.

          If you knew half of what you think you know, you’d know that boosting isn’t what causes your rank to be reset. There’s a couple of reasons why ranks get reset, the most common being having turned off your console during the time that your end of game stats are being saved.

          Now you know, and knowing is half the battle. G.I JOE!!

      • Davidrafuse

        whats the point the game is now ruined with lacers….. no map is ever gunna be the same take blood drive as an example i dint see much camping in it in gow2 in 2 years now in few months ive seen more camping than i saw in 2 years…. </3

        • JOSH BROWN FTW

          hold on a second… you didnt see camping on blood drive in gow 2?
          WHAT ARE YOU BLIND?!?
          there is LESS camping than there was before thanks to the incendiary grenade swapping out with frags.

          in gow 2 the ink grenade would block a whole doorway and you couldnt use it (campy gameplay) and frags would be planted on the walls much like gears 3 but the crap host connection wouldnt allow you to avoid the explosion (more campy gameplay)

          • Brandobar357

            at least the ink grenades were actually ink grenades…in Gears 3 ink grenades should be called STUN grenades.

               FIX THE DAMN INKS!!!

            • Anonymous

              I agree FIX THE INKS!! These grenades seem to be more effective in GOW2. The grenades should have the same type of impact as the frag, and incendiary grenades. Either make them last longer, or make them more stronger!

            • LadyGears

              I think the ‘Ink Grenades’ are perfectly fine! Much better then they were in Gears of war 2. I love how it stuns a player and if it lands straight on top of them or whatever. It’s almost an instant death. If you think they’re not strong enough or whatever you’re obviously pretty crappy at chucking those Inks ;)

            • Andrew Bauss

              Amen to that! The inks are perfect! They SHOULD be used as stun grenades. They should be used tactically as such. 

            • Nick65972

              Yes, the inks, if anything, need to do less damage. The stun is fine but it should not be an automatic kill.

            • LOLZS

              You guys don’t understand tactics. Inks and incendiary should be used to divert traffic flow for maps like smoke grenades do in actual combat the ink shouldn’t stun you, ITS A POISON SMOKE GRENADE WTF…. but if hit directly you should die. now on to the incendiary they should increase radius and duration on it but it shouldn’t kill you if not hit directly with it there should be a radius like within 2m your most likely dead 3-5m should damage you but you can get out of it. And again if hit directly should kill you. now for the gnasher its a secondary so weaken it so it could be a secondary. It forces kids to use there primary for long to mid range kills instead of just running around with a gnasher. i can understand if you point blank someone but c’mon an active shot can put you down with one to two shots if your within 5m of them. That’s what they should do. The saw’d-off keep same should have shitty damage unless pointblank, no barrel = no range. And all of this is to make it competitive because right now gears 3 standard are horrible for it to be a competitive game. Trust me no one wants to watch MLG for longshot and shotty kills.

            • CHRISINGIE001

              FIX THE GAME 
              Gears 3 sucks its watered down gears for those who couldnt play the other games which is why nobody plays it any longer ranked is empty 
              quick match is boring its like multiplayer horde 
              ive gone back to gears 2 and for all its problems when i search i game at least i get matched with real ppl not half a room of badly programmed bots 
              gears 3 will be a memory by christmas, Everybody on my friend list was still playing gears 2 a week before gears 3 came out now more ppl play battlefield and cod than gears 3. Its sad but epic killed there game to please the few 

              What they should of done create a gnasher free super lancer retro play list for those who cant coordinate moving both analogs at same time and need to camp in cover a entire match to get kills 
              then the rest of us could of continued to play the game we have played since gears 1 

              GOOD BYE GEARS RIP

            • KING-KEALUM

              i know wat ur saying man its just a game of who camps the most and the gnasher is so overpowered that people dont use there actual lancer,retro lancer or hammerbust because the ranges is insane so bad that you can down people in one hit  from miles away i played gow 2 and every one moved around RIP GOW

          seriously epic tried to appeal to cod kiddies with OP rifles and garbage like the SOS and retro (and yet those people stopped playing the game like 3 months in) so now they have a game that doesn’t feel like gears at all and is simply about who can camp the hardest with their OP rifles, it isn’t fun at all

          If you were in the process of throwing the grenade and died, then the environment got the kill, not the player throwing the grenade.

      Have you fixed the weapons?

      They are inconsistent as hell, I could shoot my entire gnahser point blank at people, not even down, they shoot me with their gnasher at a 15meter distant, almost down in 1 shot. Same goes with every weapon. Half a clip of my lancer, people are down, 3 bullets from others, I’m down and so on. Also my sawn off range is limited to actual melee range, I see others blowing me to shreds from middle range. My grenades only kill when they are less then 30cm away from the target, others kills in a 5m blast radius. Grenade tags never work, people can keep running and don’t get hit. If I evade a grenade and there’s even a wall between me and the tagged grenade, I still die.

              Gears 2 was absolutely horrid online, host based lag-switching really ruined that game. It was good for maybe the 1st 2months it was out then people figured out how to cheat the game.

               i love it when people say that because in gow 1 and gow 2 was shotty based so you and myself learned the gnasher and smashed bitches. but my point is gow 3 yeah they put the sos and retro for cod bitches but its not like we don’t drop em. so every time you get sawed off and you see that peace of shit reloading it like a fucking musket gun or retro ed down to the floor. to there 1 kill we get  5. and op rifles utilize them my man a hot clip from a lancer goes a long way for players like us its a new game so lets be new players.

        uhh common man don’t cry about the fact you can not hard aim and think smart enough to have superload on the same time…its not the fact the weapons are inconsistent its the fact your inconsistent as hell with the weapons you use.

      • Unreal MIght

        All i see is how inconsistent you are, i shoot my shotgun and it kills, u just need to calibrate your shots better, its not the game’s fault, honestly with no intentions of being mean.

        • Joseph A90

          The only gun that’s inconsistent in gears 3 is the gnasher lol.

      • Big Ben

        I think you might just suck man. I went through that phase, blaming the game for my incompetence, but after puttin’ a few hours in and tweaking my reaction time, I realized it had been me who stank, and not the game. And as for the distances at which you get downed from, take into account your aim, hit detection, and active reloads. 

        • tommyd30

          when it comes to the host well we all now that host power right so you will always have people with lower speed of internet so of coarse they will shoot more shots to down somebody so i think they should even the playing feild and make it so host isnt so pwerful so that in mind it can never be true skill cuz you go to kill somebody easy kill then ooops quick lag then you shot is off, so if they want to update get rid of the lag

      • Anthony1999666

         Another scrub complaining about his shots and bs. Just because someone lands shots better than you doesn’t mean it’s the games fault for no target assist. Go play cod if you want that.

        p.s.
        Lag could be a factor

        I know how to fix your problem….. dont pick up grenades and stay back and wait for ur target to mess up(roll toward u or get stuck on wall from trying to wallbounce) then blast them and make them never make that mistake when going up against you

      What about being able to change weapon classes on SPLIT SCREEN multiplayer after you die? As it is right now, you can never change the class once the game has already begun. This only happens on split screen.

      Wat about host I only bought this game cuz it says on the back dedicated server this is false advertisement…. Laggy connect makes u beat ass but when u have a great connect u can’t kill anything…. ECT there is so much wrong with this game its garbage I been a gears player since gow and this is just disappointing you always make it like its better and ur doing nothing in surprised people still even play this crap…

      • AJ

        The servers are dedicated for ranked and quick match multiplayer. They are not dedicated for horde and beast simply because a host has to choose whether or not to restart the round. If you don’t have the Fenix Rising maps, then you have to play on host unless you do player’s choice. I don’t see why they couldn’t do it like Call of Duty, where if someone is in the lobby without the maps then the maps don’t come up for selection. If you’re lagging on ranked and quick match and you have the Fenix Rising maps, you need to check your connection to the internet.

        • J352

           Actually the only servers that are dedicated are fenix rising thats why it says you lack the maps for dedicated servers if you dont have them. He’s 100% right they gave us dedicated servers in the beta and then we get this garbage on release then they demand we pay $10 just to get 3 maps with dedicated servers that suck anyway.

      “COG pistol firing rate has been adjusted to be equal on host and clients” To me, this means host advantage is still there, anyone else agrees? EPIC should really fix the serious issues, like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwTWOHmbNso&list=LLdZJQJZHJf9BUFe6GaidFDw&index=5&feature=plpp_video That and the fact that weapons get smaller on some characters back, but seriously EPIC watch the video, don’t just ignore the negative feedback and only take the positive feedback. That or accept that you can’t fix the game, either way would be fun for me XD BUt hey, love the new White Chainsaw lancer, looks bitching. 

      • AJ

        Are you playing with the Fenix rising DLC? If not, then yeah, you’re on host. If I’m with someone that does not have the DLC, I play players choice. I don’t walk into a host game willingly. Secondly, I have never lagged on the servers. Especially like the video. For people that do lag on the servers, they have a bad connection to the server.

    • SamuraiiHunter

      What about the Gnasher DAMNIT!!! Their is a little thing called POINTBLANKING WHEN YOUR DEAD ON A GUY AND IT DOESN’T KILL HIM!!! I’ve been playing gears ever since it came out and it never had this!!! Even gears 2 with all the lag it had, you still would get your shots in. It takes to many shots to kill someone with the gnasher, even with SawedOff medium distance does more damage then the gnasher?!???!? Does that make any sense? Either way a shotgun should kill when you get dead on someone.And boom how the hell are you suppose to clutch when someone has boom on the other team? Gears of war 2 you had to shoot dead on them, that is how it is suppose to be. Same with grenades way to over powered.

        It’s because the game hasn’t loaded your character yet. It’s not a bug, the game does that on purpose so that it doesn’t have to load again whenever you join a game half-way through.

      Love gears of war period. If you have a problem with it. Simply hit that eject button and your probs are solved. Now if you are a hardcore Horde player. Please send me a friend request. I play horde every day. I have mutators but they dont have to be used. My gamertag is (Reaqer) And dam am i lookin forward to the new DLC. So Epic you could fix some of the more pressing issues. Need to have ways to unlock skins without havin to go back and play gears of war 1 or 2 and earn certain things to unlock them for the 3rd. But i can live with my liquid metal skin. It works fine with me. SO everyone enjoy GOW3 and chill out.

      double xp on gears of war 2

    • Emporerz

      People who pre-active reload their weapons before finding an enemy are cowards. Fight me without the 200% extra damage you little girl. Either power up the gnasher without the actives or power down the actives on all weapons. It’s not hard to balance a game – just listen to what people fucking say EPIC.

    • LISTEN UP EPIC

      The retro needs to be fixed and here’s an idea. The main problem with the retro is that its fully automatic, so you can hold down the trigger close range and drop someone with a gnasher in less than 2 seconds. By the time you shoot the gnasher and cock the lever once, you’re already down from the retro (if you were unable to get the one shot kill). Why not make it so the retro overheats after like 3 or 4 shots and CANT go fully automatic. Or make it a slow burst like the gorgon was in gears 2. This way the shots MUST be controlled and it cant beat a gnasher close range. It would still have a mid range advantage over the lancer and hammerburst because of the damage that it does. This would balance things nicely. No rifle should be able to beat a shotgun at close range. I mean really, a short range rifle? That makes about as much sense as a long range shotgun. MAKE THIS CHANGE EPIC! RE-POST THIS IF YOU AGREE!

    • MonsterForce

      Unlike a lot of games, the Gears series has always been great with a lot
      of title updates to keep the game as crisp and clean as possible; For
      example Skyrim came out with a million glitches and what were the first
      things they fixed? Graphics and other bullshit nobody cared about while
      leaving the larger problems like being unable to finish quests, or items
      glitching and staying in your inventory, etc. Also to those who don’t
      care about the spectating modes being fixed or the horde/beast modes
      having some work done, shut up, because people play horde and beast a lot too; it
      ain’t just about being online playing against people, it’s about being
      able to enjoy all the aspects of the game no matter what style of gamer you are, single player, co-op, or vs multiplayer; and the spectator mode update allows for better judging of players who are holding trying for a competitive team or for “refs” to ensure nobody is cheating in a tournament match.

      Anyone looking for someone to play Gears with my gamertag is below just send me a message and we’ll see what we can do; I am a college student so I am not on all the time but videogames are how I like to relax, so I’m not looking for a clan or team, just some people willing to play and have a good time.

    • Average

      A meh job on this upcoming Title Update #4, but you forgot about what made your Gearheads turn away from this game. The rifle damage on the lancer, retro lancer, and the hammerburst is too overpowered. When people join in on quck matches and horde mode, they don’t spawn as their character; instead, they spawn as the default characters. When playing versus multiplayer-while using boomshots and gnashers- the opposing players would “sponge” or eat shots; meaning they don’t die, especially the DLC characters. The hit box on female characters must be identical as the male characters. Have all bullets and shots be registered, not robbed. While playing quick match, gamers shouldn’t be receiving the same XP points as in ranked matches; it should give you one fourth of what you earned out of the match. Apparently, you guys, Clliff Bleszinski, Rod Ferguson, and the entire Epic Games, have no desire to do that. You know what’s wrong with this game, but you’re unwilling to do that. You’ve got your money and you’ve changed the way of what was once a great Gears franchise. All you’ve gotten are your Call of Duty revenue and made your loyal Gears fans walk away. This game doesn’t feel like Gears of War 3, but more of a Call of Duty atmosphere. Why don’t you look at the videos that are posted on YouTube and see for yourselves of people “sponge” gnasher shots, the excessive camping, the damage on players when they’re being hit by the rifles with less than a few bullets, the list goes on. Observe carefully and you’ll see why people are no longer playing this game. One last thing: the Halo franchise never changed their style and gameplay and they’ve stayed committed to what they’re doing. If they can do it, why couldn’t you?

        well put bro i loved gears but this does not feel like gears at all i mean the events they have sure there fun but it seems there targeting little kids not the older ones the game is rated M but guess not and people camping god what a problem what happen to gun on gun action like in gears 1 whatever this game is dead has been 

      • Shaggydog105

        Can no one actually see campers around corners. The characters are easy to spot if u think before rushing in. And me and my friends have had that sponge effect but when u look closely at their screen from the spectating mod u can see that they r lagging and not hitting their target at all.

      The bugs and bs that you need to fix epic is the power of that crappie sawed off i was shooting a guy directly in his back about 3 times with my gnasher and he just simply turns around like nothin and gets me with that crap p.o.s weapon u guys seem to call a gun. The lag is crap too whenever someone enters a game in session is messes that server up and begins a lag. You also need to fix the STEALING KILLS situation i think if you down a guy and someone just comes and takes your kill they should be penilized for it and deducted a kill SOME OF US CARE ABOUT THE KD RATIO. I been playin gears 3 since it came out and it seems to get more and more garbage every single passing day maybe you guys should step up to the SWEET DEAL (NOT REALLY) OF US SEASON PASS HOLDERS AND START GIVING US OUR MONEYS WORTH THAT YOU GUYS PROMISED. THE SERVERS ARE JUNK NOW THAT EVERYONE ACROSS THE WORLD IS PLAYING ON IT ESPECIALLY MEXICO THEY REALLY MAKE THE GAME JUNK FIX THE GAME AND GIVE US WHAT WE PAID FOR U MADE YOUR MILLIONS WORTH NOW GIVE US SERVERS AND DEDICATED ROOMS LIKE THERE SHOULD BE. AND ONE OTHER THING I DOWNLOADED ALL THE MAP PACKS TO PLAY THEM NOT TO BE IN TDM AND PLAY THE SAME DARN MAPS OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN PUT ALL THE MAPS BACK IN QUICK MATCH TDM WE PAID FOR IT SO LET US PLAY ALL THE MAPS. GET YOUR CRAP TOGETHER AND MAKE THE GAME WORTH WHILE. NOW I SEE WHY EVERYONE IS GOING TO BATTLEFEILD 3 AND COD 3 CUZ YOUR GAME IS BECOMING JUNK SORRY TO SAY…..

      • Reddwarff

        its not mate i have played thousands of warzone matches i use hammerburst and hardly ever get bothered by a lancer

      • guest1234567

        false. People play warzone because they are sick of all the players who think this is a shotgun based game. Most players abuse the gnasher and the cover, So warzone provides a full map of firing of a different multitude of weapons. If you want to bitch about it, go play execution and enjoy abusing the gnasher.

    • Anonymous

      you guys at epic should play a match using the gnasher against a team full of retros and see just how useless the gnasher has become in gears. point blanks range best weapon is now Sawed off. close range best weapon is now easily the Retro. far range is lancer or hammer burst. so the gnsher(a hard to use weapon and also what made gears of war what it is has been reduced to complete and utter nonsense. easily defeated against easy mode weapons even at close range

      • Anonymous

        also i forgot to add. i understand guns like retro are for newer players so they dont feel intimidated. i cant get upset at that decision, but it really becomes hell when good players who know what they’re doing use this to their advantage and start using retro 100% of the time. there is just no hope to defeat them if paths cross. i was forced switched to retro to stand a change but honestly, im not having fun if i cant use my weapon of choice against a team full of retros.

        • Reddwarff

          Yeah i agree .. maybe they should limit retro to level 50 and under

        • Anonymous

          i dont have problems with rifles. i specifically said “retro” not just any rifle. what im said is if there’s a full team using nothing but retro’s then there is never a situation where its right to use the gnasher cause it will lose everytime. making it useless. i also clearly said i had to make the switch to retro to keep up. even though kills have become so much easier, it’s zero fun. it takes little skill to use unlike a hard to use gnasher, yet still better and way more accurate at close range which is silly.

      I am sad to hear that they haven’t done anything with regional matchmaking.  I get put into matches with people from Mexico and Canada almost every time.  The matches are so laggy!  I don’t understand how the game went from no lag in the beta, to very little lag in the first 2 months, to extreme lag now.  It just takes all the fun out of playing.  Lag is the cause of most of your complaints about the gnasher not working.  Let the US play US players, let Canada play Canadians, and let Mexico play Mexicans!

    • Hgdfgfdgfd

      retro lancer damage is incredibly frustrating and allows lower tiered players to down me blind firing it if i don’t down them in my first 2 gnasher shots…. The retro is just disrespectful to gears, nice to mess around with in campaign and horde, NOT MEANT FOR MP

      • fookr

         It’s fine if it is meant for short range but shouldn’t be effective at long range. I get actives pretty consistently with it now and it is very powerful.

        • Cubs4evadj

          they should just put a bayonet on the normal lancer and call it retro… problem solved. retro poke away.

      • guest1234567

        it was made to balance the game out against gnasher abusers. Its a mid ranged weapon with stopping power. Much like that gnasher you ONLY use, and no other weapon. cry more about EPIC finally balancing guns to fight the severely OP gnasher.

      • Cubs4evadj

        i completely understand what you are talking about its an interesting weapon in horde and campaign but in mp it just kills the game and anyone who thinks other wise is just a lazy noob of a player just looking for a way to escape actually trying. this game was built of lancers and GNASHERS not the juggernaut weapon known as the retro lancer. skill up or get out because i do punch babies 18mo.s and down

      Thanks for the update and attempts at fixing this already great game. That said on to my complaints…

      I have a 40 Mb/s download and 10 Mb/s upload and my number one complaint is lag. I play matches that have good connections and then some more players join and it becomes almost unplayable. Display our ping for us to see. Add a custom mode where people can edit game play settings like gears 1 and still allow online players to view and join someone else’s host.

      Matchmaking should be by K/D ratio or some form of true skill. Rank is meaningless for multi-player and while I love to own bitches that artificially inflated their rank, something should be changed. XP should be based on the stats of the person you are killing. Bots being very very low and if I kill a bad ass with a 3.0+ K/D I’d like to be rewarded appropriately.

      i use to be addicted to the gears series but now…the lag (which causes sponging) and the OP rifles are just really annoying. i have left this game for Halo reach, which isnt great since bungie got lazy with reach, but at least the game is consistent and allows creativity. i completely eliminate COD from the discussion because call of duty is so easy that its just boring. eventually i will be going back to the classic games of halo 3 and gears 1. All of the new games nowadays are just beginning to lack the ‘fun’ factor—mainly because the developers aren’t doing anything to fix problems. Like really? how are you going to fix the minor problems instead of the major problems? It doesnt make sense to me at all. i highly regret spending my money on the season pass. they haven’t released anything special really. just a bunch of recycled maps and characters that have already been released. the new maps that they have released aren’t anything special either…Gears 3 hasn’t impressed me at all. i would rather spend 60 bucks on the beta, because the beta didn’t really have any major problems. good bye gears.

      great job fixing the bugs this game needs all the tlc it can get right. you say its the final installment of the gears franchise right.. i dont believe this to be true but anyways its always gonna be our baby right so lets treat it like that. if this game is going to succeed and take the riens as the flagship game for xbox then dump some money back into it like us gamers have. show us some love. this was the reason i bought a 360 i played alot of socom 2 on ps2 before i sold all to get a 360 2 controllers and gears 1. so id like to add that id like to see all maps and new ones come to this glorious franchise. make the gnasher consistant. no body this guy shoot his buddy three times at the same distance. please. how about being able to pick a region to play in. socom 2 had this. more variety game modes and events these are good things.how about clan battle rooms password accessed.put iron sights on the lancer. i mean theyre already there right? sawed off as a pick up weapon. retro with less power more accuacy. again iron sights. lets be consistant the hammerbust has sights. thats it? this game could be perfect if it just had more attention to details.thats all im saying. well this is all i have for now. ill be back. keep up the good work and dont stop improving your product. see you on xbox live. peace and chicken grease!

      the only thing i would love to see is Epic make the retro lancer a normal lancer with just a bayonet attached instead of chainsaw. b/c we all know the retro as is is the most unstoppable weapon in the game and people milk it for kills. 3 0r 4 active bullets and your down. or a weak as close range retro poke and 1 bullet. honestly sucking the fun and skill out of the game and don’t understand why epic would try to appease to the noob outside players versus taking care of its Gears 1-3 faithfuls. Team un-modded burst, lancer and gnasher right here.

        I totally agree, we should have the option of joining a game that is already in progress. Sometimes when i’m playing a game people quit on the 33rd wave. It really sucks!!

      Way to fail EPIC. What about all the shitty hit detection issues? You still haven’t fixed that from GoW2!!!

    • MAD GEARS FAN

      I have a question for all you gears gamers how in the hell do you guys level up so fast do you do alot of private or something I preordered the game and play it none stop im a green re-up 90 and have a kd of 2.6 and played over 2800 matches and i was just recently playing against a guy that was a red re up 41 that only played barely over 500 matches how in the hell is that possible is everyone just playing alot of story mode??

        half of the community got it honestly from kicking ass for months like i did and the other half glitched.

      sit back and listen to how people complain lol. If your opponent one up’s you with any particular gun. That gun automatically shouldn’t be in the game. Stop whining like little prepubescent school girls. I’ve heard people bitch about EVERY gun in the game. Lancer faggot, Sawed Off newb, Retro fag, Hammerburst bitch etc. LOL The game has evolved, so must the player.

      hit detection no more updates or trading, mantel kick sucks needs to be fixed. public needs servers or something.

    • Funky Monkey5

      Can you please fix the lack of maps in snipes/shotguns. Same few maps missing out alot of the good snipe maps. and overkill on rustles and hotel.
      Talk of old good maps lets not forget old bones, emulsion and garden weapon placement was second to none.

      I’m reading all these complaints about people camping, but when shit hits the fan i.e. (horde mode) these John Rambo want-a-bees come crawling yelling “revive me.” It is a defensive strategy when you are camping and you’re defending your turf! Some of these folks should respect the fact that these “campers” show stability and fortification for the team. Also, Lancers not Gnashers gave this game its identity.   

    • LadyGears

      Finally! I am glad they fixed the no credit for grenade kills after death. The amount of times my grenade had killed someone as I died and not got credit for it. Thank you Epic! You’re awesome.

    • http://twitter.com/GamCappa Gam Cappacino

      also…i’m really tired of picking up the weapon on do NOT want out of a pile of them. In older games they would have a small menu or something pop up so you can select the one you want. 

    • IiNoxiousHD

      whats wrong with appealing to CoD players their trying to expand both the experience and universe they have created the gameplay is alot more polished then GOW2 quite frankly gears of war 2 was broken therefore people played it in a different way

      okay epic id like to know if you understand what the real problems with your game are do you even look at your forums how people are complaining how your game has turned into sponges of war 3 and that your servers are worse than a free to play game such a team fortress 2 and i understand making people buy dlc for the play list so people can actually play the maps but i dont understand why you only allow people who dont have the dlc only play 2 gametypes with “dedicated servers” thats just ridiculous now whats with pointless “improvements” nothing was wrong with KOTH you just made it worse than ever maybe some hills need fixed and such. Gnasher hit detection is getting worse and worse every update when i point blank someone i i expect to get a gib not some pretty blood effect that suppose to mean that you hit them when and it turns out u never hit them and they just one shot u from the same range this game is turning into gears of war 2 all over again… oh ya one more thing mantle kicking is one of the most broken things in gears i mantle over people and get shotgunned in the back… thanks epic i like to call this game bullshit wars now thanks for ruining my gears gaming experience

    • Quitsine

      epic forgot that gof1 was  the best game ever.. fuck it all up with gow2.. and now made a total piece of shit gow3.. lol ..gow1 was the reason for xbox live acc, it was fun , the drama the action the shit talking while waiting for the round to be over..  where if you were skilled you take on the hole squat…   not no more ..  all we need it was dedicated servers on  ( GEARS 1..) fuck epic..
