Gears Weekend: Happy Thanksgibbing

Gears of War 3 Thankgibbing Cluckshot EventThis #Gearsweekend we’ll be celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday with a “Thanksgibbing” event. Shotguns will be replaced with a modified Boomshot known as the “Cluckshot.” Boomshot pick-ups will also be replaced. The “Thanksgibbing” playlist may well be the noisiest we’ve ever had.

Everyone have a wonderful Thanksgibbing! The playlist is now live!

Stay Frosty: Old School Style!

Another #GearsWeekend is underway! This week, we’ll have Stay Frosty once again, however it will have the same rules that the playlist had when it first debuted! Players will spawn with 1 weakened frag grenade, Hammerburst and Snub. We’ll also up the score to win from 15 to 30.

Stay Frosty is live now! If you missed Day nine of Gearsmas, now is your chance to earn that ribbon.
