RAAM and Skorge should definately be included in Beast Mode, RAAM could use his Kryll shield and have his sword and Skorge can use his double chainsaw weapon thingy he used in Gears of War 2 and have ink grenades and be able to jump over laser grids with no problem.
I wouldn't mind seeing Skorge just having a Gorgon and Inks, with the ability to call in a swarm of Tickers that can be directed with spotting.
I was trying to find out what cash amount each tier unlocks at last night. From what I can tell Second Row (tier two) Unlocks once you have $5000. Once you unlock a tier it does not "relock" if you cash falls below that amount. (If you acquire $5000, choose a Kantus and get one-shotted, you cash could be below $5000 but you still have tier 2 unlocked). Also, I have run into people who will not buy in during the last few kills of a round because they do not want to "waste" the money. From what I can tell, any buy in for a beast that is made before the end of a round that does not "die" during that round is returned to you cash pool at the beginning of the next wave. It also seems that if you unlock the final tier but do NOT purchase one of the final tier Beasts, you do NOT get the ribbon for "Ready on the Heavies." Finally, you can mark COG just like you mark Locust in Horde and earn cash that way, having a enemy marked that is killed by a teammate will earn you $10.

Thanks for the info, Truly is helpful. It sucks that they won't be making any additions to beast mode. I find it very fun, wish they would make at least one dlc to upgrade it some.
Also wanted to note that all of the kill streak ribbons (Killing Spree, Rampage, Unstoppable, Invincible, Godlike) are earnable via Beast, along with the double, triple, quad and quin ribbons. You can also get the Hail Mary ribbon and Boombardier, Charge!, and Military Intelligence. Prolly a few more I am missing.

There must be something more to Unlocking tiers than Just cash. I unlocked at 3k, 6k and 10k (2,3,4) on Normal. However, the next match I had well over 10k and never unlocked tier 4.
Edit- I think it has to do with total kills. The 10k match I mentioned I was primarily playing as a Kantus to get the healing/revive ribbon/Medals. I notice I do not unlock the final tier of I am playing as a healer or as a Boomer (Where I get tons of Downs but not alot of kills due to later levels having so many Heroes.)

-Updated a bit
I realized that the amount of Stranded and COG Gear in some waves are randomized so I decided to change and add a subtopic on the appearance of enemies.
Under amount of enemies I combined Stranded and COG Gear since the amount of these enemies are random each wave.
Also added and finished "Other Achievements Earnable Through Beast Mode:"
I'd love to see on the final tier the maulers with the reflective shields from the DLC
I think its great that you took the time to make a list like this.
Thanks, its really helpfull.
Keep it up
Check this thread out as well if you want to. All About HORDE 2.0 <- It was made by me as well, lol.
Dunno if this has been posted yet, but I was playing some casual Beast the other day and noticed the stranded were sticking around until about wave 8 or 9. There would be fewer and fewer over the waves, but I was killing them later into the game.
I think epic should add more waves to beast mode
Changes I would like to see in beast mode are.......
1. More ranged weapons (I.E: Therons with Lancers)
2. A little more time to start with (cuz you are usually down to 30 seconds by the time you reach a base.)
3. And more engaging AI (I have trouble when a COG decides to run and hide.)
I would also be amused to see Flame Grenadiers in beast mode. The lack of range would make him hard to play, yet add some ranged weapons to the game. And if possible, when you get hit in the tank, you only have a few seconds to charge some poor dude and blow up on him. That would be awesome.

The wretch also has its stun scream. Very useful if you can get 3 or 4 in range. They're easy pickings for your team (and one for you if it's a stranded, you can down them before the stun wears off usually).
I really enjoyed the custom beast mode for this weekend. Just wish people would actually stay in the game.
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage

Anya and Sam use the silverback alot and Dizzy usually has some sort of grenade tagged.
Don't forget the New DLC achievement related to Beast.
Yeah. Right. When was the last time the wind said "hostiles" to you?Gamer Tag - Shockwave IICSTOP! Take a breath, and realise you are not the L33T player you think you are.Yes, as a Casual player I like a challenge, doesn't mean I want to feel redundant.
Thank you TiK for the Mech Baird, even though you won it and needed it yourself.
