    No, it wouldn't ruin the game. It only mean when you die, you saw something pretty before the end.

    Now that I think about it, a gold Lancer done wrong would really, really ruin the MP experience.

    But now that I think about it, Epic will probably do their best to make it look as cool as possible, I have faith in Cliff B. I thought about it.

    If I get the limited edition I'm not even gonna use the code for the golden lancer, eventually the golden lancer will be more common than the normal one.

    It has been confirmed a while back that there will be a golden lancer for the Gears LE. It's all personal preference, if you think it's tacky then don't get it. Stop complaining about it. No one's making you get it.

    I agree that other colors/effects would be cool, but people want to show off something different.

    As I understand, you're given a code to unlock it with the LE. So, if you're like me and also think it's tacky, just don't apply the code.

    It won't mean anything, anyway. The mmoment the LE comes out the code will be posted here and a billion other places around the web. Like the guy above said, you'll probably be more unique without it.

    i dont think its right for the game though, it would have fitted in with ut3 better. as its a tournament and golden plated weapons make sense in that context.

    its just wont look right and will be as common as dirt. and if all you need to do is buy the limited edition then i dont see how its showing off. "oh look at me, for a few quid more i got this tasteless looking thing"

    Like I said, in your eyes it may be tasteless but for others it could be awesome. Personal preference. Well the edition is LIMITED, so I hope they sell out and just make the game in normal copies.

    It might be a code like for MS point cards. Different code for each person and it's only vaild for one use.

    I personally think tacking on extra gun skins with a certain version of the game is just as bad as Battlefield: Bad Company. It's just a way to get the die hard Gears of War fans to buy it (which they would anyway). Basically, I don't see the point in having Golden guns. Hopefully all will be explained but I think we are getting a bit to CoD4'ish here.

    Hmmmm, buy Gears LE and sell the code online to people who are willing to pay too much money for something that's worthless.

    That's my plan.

    Anyone who says it will "ruin gameplay" is full of it. There have already been numberous threads about this golden lancer. Point of the matter is, noone has a clue what it's going to look like.

    And as Phayte would point out, it may only appear on your screen, not others.

    Or it may be like the CoD4 Golden Guns, enough to tell on the ground, but not so much that you can tell in their hands.


    I'd like to know how this would 'ruin' your gameplay.


    By the way. Since you can choose between your Lancer or Hammerburst for starting weapons, I'm guessing that the Golden Lancer will be there as a choice as well if you have put in the code.

    That's the whole point of customizing... so other people can see it...

    Anyways, as long as it looks like gold and not some dull or overly shiny toy.

    Yes, I agree its personal preference, but if we can see the other persons f**king golden lancer we dont have much of a choice do we? Its being forced upon us.

    It had better be damn well clientside or I'm going to have a serious hissy fit/tantrum.

    EDIT: whats the point of all epics hard work making things fit the gears universe, when they introduce f**king gold lancers. Im gonna love it when they introduce gold M-16s or whatever they use in Iraq

    Wow. How the hell would it ruin multiplayer? Dont complain over the smallest things. Its just a color on a gun and it wont give it any special powers. Everyone's just finding something to fuss about.

    Default Awesome Idea

    I think its an awesome idea and its obviously not rumor anymore. The addition of the gold lancer is cool, Im sure it will be an option to turn on and off once its downloaded from the marketplace with the code included in the limited edition, so its not like you'll be stuck using it all the time.

    Its a cool way to know who the real gears fans are as well. Real gears fans will be getting the limited edition, and not only for the gold lancer but for all the other cool stuff that comes with the game. Casual fans will get the regular edition, hardcore fans will most certainly mow a lawn for the extra $10 heh

    That plan is pretty dumb. Wouldn't they just buy the LE if they wanted the gold lancer?

    Because a new game is coming out so it's attracting all kinds of people chomping at the bit to let us all know their amazing opinions about everything. It's the price you pay for being a fan of a popular game in the midst of its hype.

    Thinking about it I am getting a laugh, I am sure on maps as dark as Bullet March those ugly gold Lancers are gonna stick right out.... I hope they add some highly reflective gloss to pretty them up more so I can see the glare of a hider waiting to chainsaw hahaha.

    Just kidding, I really hate this idea but... it's not up to me. Where the hell are they getting the resources to screw around and add some gold to their guns? The world is about to end...
