Rod has just confirmed on Twitch.TV that the unlocks for getting Veteran Gear is that you will get all the Gold Weapons for Gears 3, each will also have a second way of unlocking it also.

Lancer - have in Gears 2 or Veteran Gear
Hammerburst - have in Gears 2 or Veteran Gear
Retro Lancer - Unlock in Gears 3 Beta or Veteran Gear
Gnasher - Play the first week of Gears 3 or Veteran Gear
Sawn-Off - Commando Achievement in Gears 1 or Veteran Gear.

The Veteran Gears also get the Old Guard medal and title for Gears 3 as well.

Hell yeah! I'm stoked for getting all gold weapons. We also get the Retro Lancer from the beta? Awesome, that's all I missed out on. Well, that and the flaming Hammerburst from Week 1 of the Gears 3 beta because I didn't get Bulletstorm. But looks like I get everything except that. Thanks for the info, good to know! :woop:

Sorry, what do you mean by having the Lancer in Gears 2 for the requirement for the golden lancer?

I believe if you got the special edition of Gears 2, you got the gold lancer and gold hammerburst. You can buy codes for them off eBay if you don't already have them.

You could get the gold lancer/hammerburst in gow 3 by having getting them in gears 2; the gold lancer from the limited edition of gow 2 and the gold hammie from the gow 2 midnight release and other giveaways.

Everything on that list that I care about, I've already earned or will earn.

Thats a bit disappointing the the Veteran Gear reward isnt exlusive to the level 100s in Gears 2. Still a nice reward, not what I was expecting though. I would have all of them without VG.

Quite awesome that people with the wings from Gears 2 get all the Golden Weapons :)

Although, if I didn't have my wings, I would have unlocked them all anyway :D

btw rod said the LE controller comes with all 5 infected omen weapons, not just the lancer. but if ur really fussed about showing off that u bought the EE/LE console, u can still use the adam fenix MP skin along with an infected omen skin, unless u bought the controller and the LE, either way it adds up to roughly the same price as the EE so who cares? XD

only 2% more in the gears population. and that's only the ppl who still play gears 2. imagine how little there will be when every1 gets gears 3. gold and infected omen skins will be so rare. unthinkably rare.

Wow that's so weak. Really sucks that the reward isn't exclusive in the slightest. Was hoping for something that actually showed you earned Veteran Gear (edit: a medal/title isn't satisfactory); now if you see a Gold weapon it could mean they have Veteran Gear, or you know they just met the other condition.

To use myself as an example, I have Veteran Gear but I've also met the other prerequisite for every weapon except the Lancer. So, to use an unnecessarily long example of how worthless this is:

If I happen to be rocking a Golden Sawn-Off, it could represent that I have the achievement, but most people will think I beat Gears 1 on Insane (which I did).
If I'm using the Golden Hammerburst, it could represent the achievement, but I had it in Gears 2 and people will probably see it as an import.
If I'm using the Golden Lancer, it would be because of Veteran Gear (in my case), but...people will assume I had it in Gears 2.

And while it's true that this will give those not lucky enough to have the other unlock conditions fulfilled, the problem is nobody is going to associate the weapon with Veteran Gear. I want a reward that immediately expresses "Hey I have a lot of Gears experience, better watch your step." Such a kick in the face, Veteran Gear takes some serious dedication to earn and it's not even worthwhile in the end.

But what irks me even more is the condition for the Gold Gnasher. Everybody will be rocking it, it's going to get so old so ridiculously fast.

i'm only getting the gold HB from this. but atleast we get the old guard medal too. that's the only vet gear achievement exclusive.

08-12-2011, 11:40 PM
This has annoyed me abit tbh its like why use gold skins ? We already have requirements for getting gold skins its like they have been lazy, I mean I was looking forward to seeing the gold HB now and again cause of how rare it would be as to get it u had to be at the right place at the right time, made it rare but now with the XP events it means everyone will have the option to use it :/, same with the retro lancer why put the work into unlocking it in the beta if u can just get it a different way, might as well make it a starter skin pack for all lol
Was just hoping they would of gave a new skin noone knew about to show who put the time into getting vet gear :/ not just give out the same reward seems really lazy on thier part :|

P.S I don't have vet gear so im in no way one of them people who moan about getting vet gear legit etc :P

P.S.S basicly the same views as veedrock lol just saw his post after I finally posted mine lol (Took ages to write on my phone lol)

So it pretty much summed up the Gears 1 unlock as well as vg. That sucks, I was hoping for something exclusive for both VG and Gears 1. Still wonder what you get for Gears 1 on the PC though.

You get a chrome weapon skin. Don't know which one though.

Well that sucks. I already have the gold skins for ALL the weapons listed. So the only thing I will unlock when I hit level 100 is the old Guard medal. I was really hoping for something exclusive and bigger than just a plain weapons skin. Oh well, its not really that big deal anyway. I still care more about missing out on several character skins linked to pre-ordering at specific retailers.

Depends on big the next event is. I heard rumors, that the next/last one will be 50x. Not sure if it's true. But that would take no time. On average, when the events were like 25x, it would take about 10 hours of KOTH boosting to go from Lvl. 1 to Lvl. 100, give or take a few hours.

Edit: I read starting August 20th, Epic is having XP events every weekend until Gears 3 is released. Good enough for me. Epic loves their XP events! :D

Also i heard that the p/o skins will be on the marketplace. so at least they went from atleast 240+bucks from most people down to 60. this is a giant shitstorm over them

LE does not come with infected omen pack. if epic really wanted to kick LE console and EE owners in the teeth, then that'd be true. no, u get them with the EE, LE console or LE controller. only way for EE/LE console owners to show off now is to use the adam fenix MP skin with the infected omen skin. unless someone bought the LE and the LE controller. either way, they end up spending the same amount of money as EE owners. give or take 5

baird: anybody else's bullshit detector just go off?

epic you mother fuckers! do they want to totally screw us over and kick us in the teeth!? i'm still getting the epic edition because of the statue, i really like that because it's like a piece of the game for real like the retro lancer replica, but i really fucking hate them for this. i really liked the idea of having a rare, cool and exclusive animated skin. i'm just gonna hope that this is to filter the true fans from the DLC lovers. they'd still better give EE some exclusive DLC. they're just obsessed with making weapon skins accessable. soon everyone playing gears 3 will have the infected omen skin. mark my words.

they're really taking the piss, i can't believe it. it's not gonna do anything for them. apparently all LE copies are sold out world wide. they might as well keep it in the epic edition so that they make more money from that edition of the game. can't believe how fucking stupid they are. i'm probs gonna get banned for making this post.

I think that may be a misprint. Everywhere else doesn't specify the infected weapon skins being part of the Limited Collector's Edition. Your best bet would be to contact them to see if that description is genuine, or if it was indeed, as I said, a misprint :)

Hmm... very strange. Game's UK site doesn't say anything about the weapon skins, and neither does Amazon, Play.com or Gamestop (US and UK).

I'd chalk it down to a rumour for now, but I hope it doesn't turn out to be true. I may only have the Limited Edition on pre-order, but I'm happy with my Adam Fenix character, thank you very much :D

It was confirmed on the very Livestream that announced the VG reward that the controller DOES come with the infected omen skin pack. Which pisses me off. I don't understand the new obsession with making every little thing accessible to everyone. They basically took all the people who thought they were getting something special and screwed them over in one 17 minute video.

BUT Coadster then reason people are pissed is beacause MR. Troll i.e. Rod fergusson said it was something that we have never seen before. AND that it was something that we wish that we had. but i already have all the gold weapons unlocked so that is a blantant lie.

another reason is beacause now any BK randy who xp boosts during the xp weekends can get MY gold Retro that was said to be BETA EXclusive. let me tell you a story coadster. it was the last weekend of the beta i had 76 matches played and i stayed home even though i had 3 tests that day!but i didnt give a damn beacause i was like well look this proves that i put my blood sweat and tears into the beta. playing the same 4 maps got boring really fast. but i did it all to get my supposedly exclusive unlocks.

epic just screw over loyal fans i say. they're like, oh u can have something really cool and "exclusive" if u do this, but only if everyone else can have it.

They might just change the reward with that thread on the Gears 3 forums going the way it is. It has over 500 pages and 5000 posts of mostly people complaining and wanting a change.

=O! what thread!? link please!

YES! Thanks for this.

This means that I get all gold guns, as I have gotten the Golden Retro Lancer from the Beta, as well as the rest because I have the gold Hammerburst and the gold Lancer in Gears 2, as well as level 100. I also have every acheivement in Gears 1 except for stupid Seriously... and A Series of Tubes.

epic should atleast make it so that the gold retro stays beta exclusive, gnasher and SO are veteran exclusive.

Rod Fergusson said that only 2% of the Gears community has the Veteran Gear achievement, so it is pretty exclusive. I found this hard to believe myself, but it covers anyone who has gotten an achievement for Gears 2 that can be tracked over Xbox LIVE.

it matters not, within the next 5 weeks, that could easily be a fuckload more than 2%. what really detest is that they lied about it being exclusive the the VG achievement, and then saying the gold gnasher would be the VG exclusive reward for the "hardcore fans", then they go and so lightly give it away for merely playing the game the first week it launches. millions of people will have the reward that was supposed to be only for "hardcore fans". they've been a bunch of dicks recently. they also said the flame lancer was gonna be exclusive to bulletstorm, then they said IO was exclusive to EE, but it went from EE to CE (fair enough since CE is lots of money, but they still put the exlcusive tag on and lied regardless) to LE controller to LE. then the gold retro was supposed to be beta exclusive. that went to the VG achievement too, as did the "exclusive" gold HB and lancer.

no because i'm perm banned =( oh btw all u have to do to get the infected omen skins now is buy the LE game. dont even need the controller anymore. i'm still getting EE regardless. my theory is epic threw the IO skins away by giving it to the LE in order to shake of the DLC grabbers and keep the true fans still clinging because they're who the EE was meant for. and secretly, there will be exclusive DLC for the EE/CE but they wont ever announce it because obviously that'd ruin the whole point of it. what u think?

Yeah, but you have to think about all the other people who don't care about achievements and never KOTH boosted their way to Veteran Gear. There's a lot of people out there who play this game for fun. Most people who want their achievement already have it by now. I'll be suprised if it even increases to 3% after the events. Still 3% is not much. It may seem like a lot of people have their wings, and they do, but there's still millions and millions who don't.

Like I said earlier:
Yeah, with the bitchfest, hopefully Epic will add something else...

ye! like me, i play gears 2 for fun and dont give a fuck about achievements, but i still got it. kmack11 has an awesome idea. if u have the requisit for a particular gold weapon (e.g. lancer), and have VG, then u can unlock an exclusive skin for that particular weapon. (exclusive skin for lancer). btw what's a good K/D ratio on gears of war? i've never known, but mine's 1.92 i think. my K/D on grind yard is rediculous, it's 7.1. 700 kills on grind yard, 100 deaths approx

Wow. Never seen so many complaints about one little thing pour in so fast :p

But I agree with you all about the golden weapons malarkey. I feel us Veteran Gears should get a weapon exclusive, rather than just a badge/medal. How about PLATINUM or ONYX weapons instead? :p But seriously, I feel we deserve something of value.

As for the Infected Weapon Pack being in the LE, I still say it isn't confirmed. The 2 sites which say so are in the heavy minority compared to all the other sites which DON'T say so. Give it time, and we'll learn the truth, people.

EDIT: Also, to back up on the last point, Amazon actually posted on the LE description that the infected weapon skins would be included, but later remedied this. It is most likely the same case for Best Buy and Game AU.

my theory is that epic gave away the IO skins to the LE too because they discovered that most people were buying the EE only for the IO skins, so they wanted to filter them off by making them downgrade to the LE by giving it the IO skins, thus keeping the true fans still clinging on to the EE because that's who it was meant for. also, since they like their loyal fans (that wouldn't seem apparent due to recent events. VG achievement reward *cough*) they will give us some exclusive DLC for the EE/CE to show or signify us being big or loyal fans. i'm betting liquid metal skins. but obviously they wont mention or annouce it because that'd just attract the DLC maniacs back which they didn't want in the first place. stupid business decision if u ask me, EE has only 150,000 copies globally. very very limited, so i guess they're making space for the true fans who can't get the epic edition by shaking off the DLC maniacs. they sold out in australia months ago and ik some people on epic games forums really wanted the EE but couldn't get it because it was sold out there. i think this is a quite plausable explanation. what about u?

The ONLY thing I believe people SHOULD bitch about is the lack of DLC exclusives to the Epic Edition. If any edition holders were to get something more, it would be them.

Standard = Game only
Controller = Infected Omen Skins (All 5)
Limited Edition = Infected Omen Skins, Adam Fenix
Epic Edition = Infected Omen Skinds, Adam Fenix (No differnce between LE and EE)

Simple fix. Give EE an extra exclusive character or weapon skin set.

Most games, when they have multiple editions, get different DLCs in each. i.e. Halo Reach

Standard Edition = Recon Helmet
Limited Edition = Recon Helmet, Elite Skin Exclusive
Legendary Edition = Recon Helmet, Elite Skin Exclusive, Flaming Helmet Exclusive

i just want epic to do two things atm.

1.atleast take back the IO skins from the LE game or give the EE/CE some truely exclusive content with no other way to get it.

2.give the VG an exclusive weapon skin this time and make no alternate way to get it to make it more "accessable" (the word they seem to be obsessed with recently) so that VGs have something to prove they got the VG achievement so they can be proud. maybe like taking back the gold gnasher from week 1 making it VG exclusive.

i'm not saying every1 who doesn't buy EE isn't a true fan, i'm simply saying, they're trying to get people who r only after the DLC to not buy the EE because there are other fans out there who want the EE more than them and the EE is very limited like i said, so epic are doing something about it so that the people who want it the most can get it.

the other thing is that, no EE doesn't make me a true fan, but considering i been playing both games for 4 years, and atleast got my self the VG achievement and both gow games are easily the games i've spent the most playing time on, i'd say i am a true fan. i also want the EE for the statue and the DLC half and half really. the statue i really like obv coz of the awesome detail, even the lights on marcus's armour and gun glow in the dark as well as the imulsion veins, but also because it's like a piece of the game in real life, same reason i got the gold retro lancer. so ye, i'd say i am a true fan.

so what if u can't afford the EE, i'm refering to most of those who downgraded from EE to LE because they found out LE comes with the IO skins too (not yet confirmed tho). happy?

Had a look at the Best Buy listing, and found something VERY interesting. Look at the second bullet point in the description:

Limited Edition includes an Octus Award Box, Octus Service Medal, Adam Fenix multiplayer character, Fenix Family Mementos and a fabric COG flag.

Nowhere in that does it mention the infected weapon skins. I think it may have been a botched copy and paste job, considering all the LE contents are in the EE.

i saw it, but listen, he also posted a picture of a tweet by chris wynn saying the EE, console and controller have it, not the LE. if it does, it's not epics fault, it's MS being fuckwits trying to fuck us over.

its chris wynn, ther same guy who said the controller comes with ONLY the lancer. >__-

apparently rod fergusson has also said this. ik, i got a feeling the LE will turn out like the controller too, and i'm gonna murder MS if it does becuse it's their fault.

mhm. the only way for any1 to show they got the EE/CE is to use adam fenix and an IO skin, unless someone got the LE+controller, but either way EE=100
LE+controller=95
if ur willing to spend that much then fine, but it's kinda ruined because people probably buy the controller just for DLC, which defeats the point of the IO skins; to signify real fans (not saying if u dont have em, ur not a true fan).

You seem really bothered by the fact others can get the IO skins i mean yea ok fe it was a EE exclusive but so's the statue which is the reason it cost so much (and i know u cant see it ingame but the IO skins arent the reason its so much), im getting the Controller and the LE because im a fan of gears and got all the other LE of the games, u seem really intent to let everyone know ur this ''true'' or ''real'' fan, really not sure why lol :/.

oh and im only spending 70 for both because i got 20 on my game card for when i go pick it up and get a 5 discount on the conroller as im buying it online :D, gotta save them lol

and i do argee with how they screwed us all with the retro lancer and the VG achievment, hopefully that gets changed (i like your onyx idea btw, black vapour ftw :D) but they havent said what achievements unlock what yet so thats something i guess lol (apart from the commando achievement on gears 1 unlock)

in all honesty, the gold retro was nothing, it took me from the 18th to the 20th to unlock that thing in retail XD i was refering to me real retro at the same time. btw can u get on to epic games forums? if so, can u send TAO Devil this message please: "At this point I want all VG unlocks removed, except for the medal/title."
it's not necessarily about epic trying to be nice, this is a business decision. by doing what they've done with gold skins, they'll sell more copies of gow1 and 2.

For the life of me, I can't understand why everyone has sandy vaginas about this stuff. They're skins for guns. They do NOTHING in game. Was I sad that I didn't have gold Lancer and Hammie in Gears 2? No. Because it doesn't matter. Whatever I end up getting in Gears 3, I'll use. I care about the gameplay and the fun. Not that someone goes "damn dog, you bought the Epic Edition and got that gun skin? I'm soooo jealous now!"

Just my 2 cents...

Rod Fergusson said that only 2% of the Gears community has the Veteran Gear achievement, so it is pretty exclusive. I found this hard to believe myself, but it covers anyone who has gotten an achievement for Gears 2 that can be tracked over Xbox LIVE.

Yea I remember that statistic. My meaning is that its not exclusive due to all the events. I hit 100 before they permanently made it double exp now its just meh.

well, we get the gold gnasher as a VG exclusive instead now. but they've decided to give away the gold lancer and HB for any1 who plays the first week instead. i'm still not happy with that. i'd rather it be the gold sawed-off. but now there's 3 ways to get the gold HB and lancer. after the first week of launch they'll be worthless, but it'll take a few years for the gold lancer and HB to get back to how valuable it was. i wont ever be rocking my gold lancer again after gow3 or any gold weapons except the gnasher because the gnasher rocks them all! my loadout will be infected omen rifle, adam fenix with gold gnasher all the time, unless i really need to use the SO for some stupid reason like to get back at noobs who get cheap kills on me with it more than once. usually i just pwn em with the retro or gnasher, but the corner campers...grrr. coz the gun is so small u can't see ppl with it round corners unlike other weapons that arn't pistols (except the digger launcher and torque bow maybe).
i still think they could have left it the way it was and then taken the gold skins from VG and given VG exclusive new skins like VG was promised, or simply made it so that for any loadout weapon, if u have gold+VG u get liquid metal skin for that particular weapon. and if u have all gold without having to have the VG achievement, but have the VG achievement as well, u get all liquid metal skins. that'd have been best most people agreed.

I understand, guys like you actually 'deserve' all that shit. I KOTH boosted my ass off one night and got the achievement, but I'm glad I get all of that as well.

Oh nice change, I'll take it! :D

Be nicer if they'd only give away one Gold AR during week 1 instead of both (probably the Hammerburst because it's more rare) but it's not worth fussing about. VG actually gets a worthwhile exclusive now, a reward that immediately portrays seniority and experience, as well as makes people drool :p

I also expect an increase in activity for the upcoming events. While it's true that one can get 3/5 Gold weapons pretty easily, the Gold Gnasher was easily the most anticipated. Now that it's out of (the previously ridiculously easy) reach for the common man, people will want their wings where they wouldn't have bothered before.

i'm pissed that they're making my gold lancer worthless by giving them all away for playing week 1 of the game. over 1 million people will have it. ebay codes wont sell for much anymore. idc tho, i just wanted a rare skin to show off, and epic trashed that with the IO, the gold lancer and HB, the flaming (orignally flame lancer only, and only for the bulletstorm preview), and the gold gnasher and every other gold weapon there is. but they fixed the gold gnasher luckily. IO only just cuts it, but there's always people who can buy the LE and controller, it only costs 5 less, but if ur willing to spend that much on a game coz u like it so much and u think it's worth it then fine.

they made it better in one way, and worse in another. now there's 3 ways to get the gold lance/HB. i agree, they shoulda kept gold lancer and HB the way they were and given the gold sawed-off away on the first week instead. gold lancer/HB are gonna be worthless now, i'll never be using mine again unless im playing gears 2. i'll always be using IO rifle with gold gnasher, maybe flame HB too. idk, atleast i will be able to unlock all the weapon skins now. the only thing i wouldn't have unlocked would be the gold HB.

Fergusson went on to explain that achievements are the easiest way to track and reward those who have played the previous games. "Generally whenever we do unlocks, we do it based on achievements. That's why I've been trying to tell people about the level 100 thing. No, it's not about getting level 100 [in 'Gears of War 2' multiplayer] , it's about Veteran Gear. Get that achievement and that'll get you something.

The statue is the best thing that comes with the EE. That way you can show off in RL. Some skins on players i dont know, i dont care about. so what is the big deal. Just enjoy this awesome game. And i also think Epic is doing a great job. flawlessly.

Its not like I'll be giving a s*** when they have them and are mostly garbage anyways lol. To me, it's all about enjoying your time within the game itself, not who has what "exclusive" unlocks. It is no different than those who 10th prestige lobbied their profiles in MW2 and then go double digit negative every game they are in your lobby lol.

Personally, I think the hot pink skin will be more stylish than the gold or IO imo. And who honestly cares if "everyone" has gold skins or IO skins to begin with. Its not like I'll be giving a s*** when they have them and are mostly garbage anyways lol. To me, it's all about enjoying your time within the game itself, not who has what "exclusive" unlocks. It is no different than those who 10th prestige lobbied their profiles in MW2 and then go double digit negative every game they are in your lobby lol.

it's not necessarily about how cool the skin looks, it's about the fact that people worked hard for the veteran gear achievement and they wanted something to show for it and were outraged to find that most of them didn't need the veteran gear achievement to get the reward. so all that work for nothing. on top of that, what was more enfuriating was the fact that epic said that the gold gnasher was going to be a reward for the "hardcore fans" for getting the achievement, and then they suddenly decided to give it away to every noob who plays the first week of the game who'd think nothing of it. they just gave in to the cry babies who say "i want to be able to get that skin and epic arn't giving me the chance". when infact it's more like "i want the same stuff as u, but i dont want to work as hard as u for it" actually, epic gave everyone the chance, otherwise people wouldn't be able to get it in the first place.

but atleast they took it back and made the gold gnasher vet gear exclusive.

with the IO skins, some people who bought the EE/LE console are mad because they're big big fans of the game, and they want something to show for that as well, just like the VG achievement. and then epic gave it away to the controller and almost the LE, but they confirmed that the LE doesn't have the IO pack, and the retailers were wrong. those retailers have now updated their sites and no longer say the IO pack is in the LE. others who bought the EE for the DLC will be dead happy to find out that the IO is in the controller too.

What about the achievement as "something to show for it". Honestly anyone who complained about this whole gold gun fiasco is bottom of the barrel.

Everyone will always have their own thing to complain about.

The ONLY golden gun I really care about is the Sawed Off. I don't play enough to earn Veteran Gear (you need a lot of free time!). I'm not talented enough to beat Gears 1 on Insane. So I'm losing out on the one golden gun I really want. Oh well, life goes on. I have my golden P-Lancer. I'll get some others for playing day one. And that will be that.

Rod has just confirmed on Twitch.TV that the unlocks for getting Veteran Gear is that you will get all the Gold Weapons for Gears 3, each will also have a second way of unlocking it also.

Lancer - have in Gears 2 or Veteran Gear
Hammerburst - have in Gears 2 or Veteran Gear
Retro Lancer - Unlock in Gears 3 Beta or Veteran Gear
Gnasher - Play the first week of Gears 3 or Veteran Gear
Sawn-Off - Commando Achievement in Gears 1 or Veteran Gear.

The Veteran Gears also get the Old Guard medal and title for Gears 3 as well.

Lancer and Hammerburst are attainable through playing week 1 of the release.
gnasher is the only VG exclusive.

We were gonna get the gold guns anyway so I still think everyone is a whiny bitch. It's a game and you didn't have to go through with getting the VG achievement. You did it of your own volition so none of us are entitled to anything. You should be glad that you get anything for having the achievement. Most companies wouldn't even give us a title for having an achievement in a previous game much less skins for weapons.

u fail to understand that we were mad because epic said they were going to reward veteran gears with some exclusive content, and they went back on it or lied. that's why people got pissed off.

Most games wouldn't make outlandish promises for exclusive content either. Epic DID, and thus it was expected that they hold up to their word. Plain and simple.

You do know that the medal and title the only VG's can get right? So that's pretty exclusive. And not everyone would have every gold gun unless they had every prerequisite to obtain them and the VG achievement would give them all to you. So that's kind of an exclusive as well. It's not like everyone who plays Gears is a VG. I've seen so many players without the achievement I started thinking the XP events weren't working. So VG was still special even before the change.

sorry i also forgot to mention, we saw the VG old guard medal in the beta. and also, not only did rod fergusson say it was exclusive, he said it was also something we hadn't seen yet. even so, you have to do ranked match making in order to see that medal, and not everyone likes ranked either and ur only gonna see it for 10 seconds in lobby anyway.

edit: if u think our side of the arguement is so unreasonable, why did epic change their minds and give us the gold gnasher as exclusive content? it's not so much to ask anyway so idk what the problem u see is.

Your side isn't unreasonable. People are just whiny bitches by nature and always think they are entitled to stuff when they aren't. Epic changed because obviously it was a shit storm so they had no choice. All I know is true Gears fans didn't complain about it. We were all just happy to get something. You don't see games like COD or BF give you stuff for having achievements in previous games.

you dont have to not whine about something to be a true fan, that's just ur definition of the term so take that back. and alot of VGs weren't getting anything except the next to useless medal because they already had all the requisits for all gold weapons without having to get VG achievement. and so what if the producers of cod and bf dont give u anything for past games, that's their decision. epic decided to for 2 reasons: sell more gears 1 & 2 copies, and to reward loyal fans ofcourse. anyway, epic promised VGs some "exclusive" content that we'd never seen b4 and they went back on both of those, but now only one.

and epic did have a choice to change it, at the end of the day, they're a business who exist for the sole purpose of making money and could just be selfish dicks and ignore it all by not doing anything because their best interest is the profits they make at the end of the year. but no, they've been considerate and changed it back so VGs do get atleast 1 thing nice that they have to prove they got the achievement.

"People are just whiny bitches by nature and always think they are entitled to stuff when they aren't."

by that logic, that makes you either a 'whiny bitch' or u r simply not a person :p

also, i repeat, epic promised some exclusive content for veteran gears, so i think that does entitle them to it unless epic decide to be assholes for a change.

It's a little disappointing to be honest. It's not really that special considering and a little annoying as I thought the Golden Retro Lancer was a beta exclusive unlockable. Weapon wise, all I'll be missing is the Golden Hammerburst, but I'm working on getting up to level 100 (currently level 54, so I've got a way to go yet).

And no, you'll be missing the gold gnasher too as it has been changed to ONLY be available to VGs.

True, but I thought they'd have done something a little different for Veteran Gears than the weapon skins, etc.

If the Gnasher's been changed it looks like I'm going to have to get on with it then.

If the Gnasher's been changed it looks like I'm going to have to get on with it then. Yea originally it was all gold weapons, and gnasher unlocked for playing in week one. They changed it to gold lancer and hammerburst being week one unlocks now, so the gnasher is the only gun exclusive to VG, in addition to vg unlocking all golds
