We want to thank you for reaching out to us over the weekend with your thoughts on Friday’s announcement of the Veteran Gear unlock for Gears of War 3. We value the feedback of all our fans, especially our Veteran Gears who put in so much time not only by playing the game, but by sharing your passion for Gears on a daily basis on the forums.
With that in mind, we’d like to let you know that the Golden Gnasher Gears 3 unlock will only be available to those who have earned the Veteran Gear achievement in Gears of War 2. We do want to reward fans who play Gears 3 during release week, but have decided to do so by unlocking the Golden Hammerburst and Lancer instead of the Gnasher.
Thanks for your dedication to the Gears franchise. It will be easy to identify our Veteran Gears on September 20th when we see you online with your exclusive Golden Gnasher unlock and medal!
- For those who have asked, Veteran Gears still unlock all Golden Weapons. The minor change means that the Golden Gnasher is now exclusive to Veteran Gears.
- Remember that there are several Gears 2 XP events leading up to Gears 3 launch. Look for details on that on http://epicgames.com/community/ this week.
