Posted by iTarget Designs on September 7, 2011 at 4:15 PM Comments comments (154)

Epic Games is going a little weapon skin crazy with Gears of War 3 with multiple unlockable weapons skins. Epic's Rod Fergusson previously revealed the details on how to get the golden weapons in the game and he is back with more information on how to get even more.

Fergusson said that Epic wanted to have at least one set of unlockable weapons skins for Gears of War 3 that would be relatively easy to get compared to some of the others. With that in mind, they came up with Chrome skin set and here is how you can earn those.

Advertisement For the baddest of badasses, Epic is also including an Onyx weapon skin. Onyx is the highest medal unlock in the game. Getting 6,000 kills with any of the five starter weapons unlocks not only the Onyx medal for that weapon but also an Onyx skin for the weapon.

Reaching level 100 in Gears of War 3 will unlock the Gold Omen skin which is a mix of gold coloring with crimson highlights.

Epic Games also has something planned for the Liquid Green skin that Microsoft testers had in beta. It will reappear as special marketing promotion for Gears of War 3 but Epic hasn't decided on what it is they are doing for the promotion yet. The weapon skin will be available for something though with an announcement coming soon.

Gears of War 3 is scheduled to hit the Xbox 360 exclusively on September 20.

iTarget Exclusive: Gears of War 3 Q+A From Rod Fergusson!

Posted by iTarget Designs on September 7, 2011 at 4:10 PM Comments comments (156)

Epic's Rod Fergusson took to the internet to make a couple of announcements for Gears of War 3 weapon skins and answer a bunch of questions from fans. We've already covered the weapon skins and now lets find out the answers to the questions that covers rare weapon skins, the Season Pass and what it was like for Fergusson to cut the cake with Cliff Bleszinski.


REMEMBER: iTARGETS WERE VOTED THE #1 KILL / DEATH RATIO BOOSTING MOD FOR GEARS OF WAR BY 3 TOP VIDEO GAME MAGAZINES and EXTREME-MODS.COM! OVER 5000 GEAR HEADS AROUND THE WORLD AGREE!

Can you use Mutators in Private Matches?

 No. Mutators are limited to Arcade and Horde. There will be a subset of mutators for special events that Epic will control though like the Big Head mutator in the beta though.

Does the Veteran Gear achievement need a timestamp?

No.

What will be the rarest skin?

Golden Omen. Fergusson doesn't know how many people will be able to reach Level 100 to unlock it. The Liquid Green skin may be rare too depending on the marketing promotion they announce. The Gold Gnasher could be the rarest too.

Advertisement Will the Season Pass be available at 12:01 a.m. on September 20?

Fergusson thinks so but Xbox LIVE typically uploads new content at 2 a.m. PST/5 a.m. EST. However, it could be loaded up the day before so that it is available immediately when the game is released.

How long will the Season Pass be available

The season pass is not limited in time. You can wait and pick it up at a later date.

What are the starting default multiplayer characters?

Marcus, Dom, Anya, Cole and Baird for C.O.G. and Savage Grenadier, Savage Drone, Myrrah, Drone, Sniper for Locust.

When will the DLC details be announced?

 

As we get closer to release. The first one will come in December.

If one person dies in 4 player camapaign does it affect everyone else?

Yes for Story Mode (No man left behind). You'll have to reload at the last checkpoint. Not for Arcade Mode though. Individual(s) that died respawn when the current battle is finished so people will respawn on the fly.

Do Planted or dropped Boomshields disappear between waves like in Gears 2?

Yes. You'll have to manage them in between waves during the 20 second deployment phase. Epic can't leave every weapon that gets dropped on the ground for performance reasons.

What are the maximum carry quantities for the grenade types in Horde?

2 for all grenade types.

How many Silverbacks can be used at once during Horde?

There are only two available for purchase on any map.

How many Medals were added after the beta?

Several new Ribbons but no new Medals. Epic did change the names, requirements and rewards for some of the Medals. The example Fergusson used said one of the Medals may be achieved with a million experience points but you only get 5,000 experience points as a reward. That wasn't very much so Epic changed it to try and tie it closer to where the player is at in the game.

Do you need to keep your Gears 3 beta save after they load up Gears of War 3?

No. But make sure you point to the storage device that you are using when you fire up Gears of War 3.

What kind of emotions did you have when you were holding Cliff [Bleszinski] between your arms cutting the cake?

 

"Awkward." Fergusson goes on with a kind of rambling discussion about cutting the cake and Bleszinksi making an "orgasm face" that he says was supposed to be a disgusted face. Check the full video in our video gallery for this bit.

Are there any plans for Gears of war 3 EXP events?

Lot's of crazy stuff. Turn on Mutators for stuff like Big Head mode and XP events. Everything will be on the in-game calendar so you can see the next four or five events inside Gears of War 3.
