    Default Weapons on a player's back

    We still cannot see the weapons on a players back, except when playing split screen. The same problem happened in Gears of War 2, and I am interested to know if this will be fixed. It is a huge tactical advantage to know what weapons people are carrying, and to see them carrying a Sawed Off while their lancer is on their back is a huge deal. Sometimes the weapon on their back is more important, such as a sniper rifle, a torque bow, or even a boom shot or hammer of dawn. If we could see the weapons on their back, we would know what kind of situation we would be running into, which was a big problem in Gears of War 2: I could hide the boom shot and torque bow on my back, and only a split screen pair or host would know. Nobody else could see it unless they were on my team. Knowing what weapons the enemy has on them is a big thing, and I would like to see this fixed.

    I thought you couldn't see the enemies weapons was intentional.

    No it was never intentional. It removes a tactical advantage from the game.

    I think you MAY have answered your own question. Maybe they are not keen on giving ANY advantage or atleast less then before?

    I dunno. It's what I'm thinking.

    Just because you think it removes a tactical advantage does not mean it wasn't intentional...

    That being said though, I agree with you original point and I would like to know what weapons other players are carrying. This might not be the best example, but if I walk up behind two players and one has lancer/hammy and the other has a boomshot...I'm killing the guy with the boomshot first.

    Pretty sure it's intentional. It gives you a sense of not knowing what to expect, and to be cautious.

    That doesn't make sense. If they wanted that then why would they show your team mates weapons as well? Why allow players that are playing split screen and host be able to see the other teams weapons? It used to be a graphical issue that games didn't need to show the weapons on a character, but now it just doesn't make sense that a greatly animated game like Gears of War would not show you enemies weapons.

    You shouldn't be able to see what your enemy has on his back, it gives the enemy a element of surprise. And even if you can't see them you can see on the bottom left some1 picked up boom or sniper, so why any need to see the weapons on backs lol.

    Can you supply some kind of source stating that the developer's intention was for players to be able to see what weapons an enemy is carrying on their back? It's rash (and downright stupid if you ask me) to say someone "knows nothing about Gears" if they disagree with you on this point.

    It's a fairly significant gameplay aspect, and I doubt there are any technical limitations preventing the developers from making carried weapons visible. So if you can't see weapons on opponents' backs then it seems like it was pretty intentional.

    So much for knowing nothing about Gears, eh? Keep the insults to yourself next time, bub.

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAActually...you can see your teammates weapons on their backs, you can't see your opponents. It's not a glitch. It's intentional. People might not agree if it's good or bad, but it's definitely intentional.

    You cannot see the weapons on an enemies back, and it would be great if that were to change.

    Not being able to see the weapon sitting on an opponents back IS intentional.

    When your host. Unless your host or playing split screen, then it will not display the enemies weapons on their back, which makes it a glitch. Why would the host and a split the screen pair be able to see weapons on an enemies back while the rest of your team cannot unless they are the same? It's a glitch, plain and simple and EPIC should fix it.

    Host is unable to see weapons on an enemies back...


    If you CAN see the weapons on an enemies back, you need to bring that up in the Issues Forum so we can resolve it.

    If you're looking for tactical advantage, maybe direct your eyes to the kill feed in the lower left of the screen that says in big bright letters who picks up what weapon. I think that's more obvious and easier. And besides, if you're looking at the enemy's back they should be dead in a few moments...
