    Default Gears of War 3 Title Update 2 Release Notes

    Hey Gears fans! At 2 a.m. Pacific tonight we’ll begin rolling out Title Update 2 for Gears of War 3. While this is in progress dedicated servers will not be available. Once the update is live you will automatically be prompted to download it if you are connected to Xbox LIVE.

    Read our full list of release notes and be sure to join us tomorrow night (11/16) for a live stream with Epic Games Director of Production Rod Fergusson. The stream will start at 5:00 p.m. Eastern on the Epic Games Twitch.TV page.

    Improvements

    • A spectator mode option has been added to private versus matches for broadcasting by gaming leagues.
      • One player on each team will be able to choose spectator mode during match set up.
      • The matches will be 4v4 with two spectators

    • The Leader and Vengeful medals are now easier to acquire.
    • The mutators Roadie Comet and Regen Enemies are now easier to acquire.
    • Added an option to disable the HUD during multiplayer games for machinima and video creators
    • Added a visual indicator of the next ring’s location during the last 10 ring points in KOTH.

    Exploit Fixes

    • The Onyx Field Engineer medal can no longer be prestiged.
    • In Capture the Leader, the overhead Beams on DryDock are no longer accessible.
    • While affected by the Smoke Grenade stun, players will no longer be able to take hostages, pick up weapons or revive teammates.


    General Fixes

    • If there is a host migration during Horde, the match will resume at the same wave.
    • Also during Horde, the Combat Engineer ribbon can now be achieved once per wave instead of once per game.
    • The Ranked Disconnect stat will no longer increase when quitting a standard Horde or Beast game.
    • The cringe from the Mortar will no longer cause players to drop their primary weapon.
    • The Hail Mary ribbon is now correctly awarded for long distance Boomshot headshots.
    • Maps will no longer be immediately repeated when choosing random map selection.
    • If the host pauses during a private versus match the game will continue for other players.
      • The game will still pause in the Campaign, Beast and Horde.

    • Potential fix for the rare lost progress issue.
    • Potential fix for the rare profile freezing issue.
    • Beast leaderboard screen no longer refreshes while sending challenges

    Many thanks to II EVOL ONE II and Gearzandbeers for the Mech Baird in the invasion stream! Thanks to Rossyboyy for the SGE! +^_^+ Thank you Jill for the Flaming Gnasher code!+^_^+ My Name's Taken : ( won the gnasher code in my contest! Green skin donated by Cha0ticByNature (no link as he's not on forum) for helping him learn wall-bouncing +^_^+ Thanks Flak for editing my username!+^_^+ A sawed off fight to me feels like a samurie dual, both oppenents circling each other... sizing each other up.... then BAM they move like lightning into each other, both dealing one blow that will decide their fates.. gnasher dancing reminds me of fencing, darting back and forth, proding for weakness... finishing each other in a ballet like nobles with rapiers... Thank You XaldinXenotrix for the 1st place prize of 1600 MSP in your contest!!! looking for Savage Kantus, all i can return is my thanks, and a spot on my siggy+^_^+ *will work on putting colors back later*

    I notice they didnt do anything about the War Supporter glitch/bug that allows Onyx to be achieved quickly.

    Which in turn confirms to my theory that this was allowed on purpose as a 'viral' selling tool.

    Pretty sneaky Epic. Well done indeed.

    Really hope this fixes things for those that are frozen. Curious what you mean by progress bug is this addressing the rank reset?

    Or... They haven't addressed it yet because TU2 work started before that glitch occurred...
