Onyx Medals Guide and Discussion

You do not need to have participated in the beta or be Lv100 in Gears 2 to earn this achievement.

In total there are 65 onyx medals you need to earn in order to unlock the Seriously 3.0 achievement, you will also need to rank up to LV100 but that will most likely come naturally while going for the onyx medals (When I hit LV100 I had 14 onyx medals.). The medals have tiers, kind of like challenges in Halo: Reach, it goes bronze > silver > gold > onyx.

Keep track of your progress easier with the help of Ctr Alt Defeats excel spreadsheet: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=333803

The information about every medal will look something like this:

NAME OF THE MEDAL
DESCRIPTION ( BRONZE / SILVER / GOLD / ONYX )
EXPLANATION/SOLUTION

VERSUS MEDALS

Every versus medal can be earned in private matches with custom settings VS casual bots or friends, I recommend you to set the number of bots to "Fill" if you're going to play the matches otherwise you will not be able to earn any of the important ribbons. However, if you are afk playing, it helps to put the bots at 1 or 2 cause you will still earn progress to most of the medals.
Also remember that you can choose what weapons will spawn on what place, if you're going for fire kills for example, set everything to hammer of dawns or scorchers.

VENGEFUL
Execute (10/20/50/100) nemeses.
A nemesis is an enemy who killed you 5 times in a row without you killing him in the same match.
I don't have a super good method for this, I have been using 2 controllers and killed myself with the 2nd controller 5 times then executed the 2nd controller.


CAPTOR
Kill (50/200/500/1000) enemies with a captive.
Press X while standing next to a downed enemy to take them as captive, you can only use melee and your pistol like this. You can knock out a great deal of these while going for leader captures.

WAR SUPPORTER
Play in (5/10/20/30) Gears events.
The way to earn it is to play online during 30 different Gears Events, to check what events are comming up, go to the "Event Calendar" option in the main menu.

MVP
Earn (5/25/100/500) MVP ribbons.
You get the MVP ribbon by finishing a match with the most points. If you plan on playing vs bots, this will come way way way before you finish the 18,000 matches you need to play. Must be done with bots set to "Fill" or in a match full of players.

FIELD SERVICE
Reach Level (25/50/75/100).
You gain EXP from pretty much everything in Gears 3. You get the most points out of playing Ranked Matches, however expect your opponents to be more skilled than in quick match. If you don't turn off your console you never lose your consecutive bonus either. If you want a good method to gain EXP check out the video under Afficionado.

VETERAN
Play (100/500/2000/4000) matches.
Since you need to play 3,000 matches of each game mode, this will come naturally. Check each individual game type medal for ways to idle boost. Check the video below for a more elaborate description on how to idle boost all game modes.


MATCH WINNER
Win (50/250/1000/3000) matches.
Same as "VETERAN" except you can play the matches yourself if you really want to win every one of them. You can also plug in a 2nd controller for the other team to even out the odds.

HEADSHOT
Get (100/500/2000/4000) headshots.
You can score headshots with most single-fire weapons. Easiest for me is to down someone, then fire 2 rounds in their head with the snub pistol. Other good weapons for this are the boltok pistol, the longshot or the torque bow. Video shows easy method with a 2nd controller. An elaborate explanation can be found here.


HEAVY WEAPONS
Get (100/500/2000/6000) heavy weapon kills.
One-shot, Mulcher and Mortar counts as heavy weapons.

EXPLOSIVES
Get (100/500/2000/6000) explosive kills.
Grenades, Boomshot, Torque Bow and Digger counts as explosives.

FINISHER
Get (100/500/2000/6000) executions.
You execute someone who is downed by pressing Y or X (meat shield) while standing next to them, chainsaw-kills and bayonet-charges also counts as executions and stack with kills for that weapon.

SKUNKER
Skunk enemy team (25/100/500/2500) times.
Win without letting the enemy team win a single round, cannot be won in 1 round matches. Recommend you to go for these while going for "Sovereign" and "Leader" medals or if you want them done as quick as possible, Warzone set to 2 rounds will be best. Must be done with bots set to "Fill" or in a match full of players. You won't get it every time but it will go up little by little.

LEADER
Earn (10/50/150/300) Untouchable ribbons.
You get the untouchable ribbon by finnishing a round of CTL as leader without letting the enemy capture you at all. There is a trick to make you leader every round, you need to have 2 controllers and a dummy profile. Make your dummy profile the main player by pressing start with the 2nd controller at the "PRESS START"-screen, this will make your dummy profile the main player and you the secondary player. Start a match of CTL with rounds to win at 1 and cap time at 10, the key here is to put both you and your dummy profile on the same team vs 5 bots. The first match you start will have the dummy as a leader but every match after that you will be the leader! Must be done with bots set to "Fill" or in a match full of players.

ABDUCTOR
Capture (25/100/250/500) enemy leaders.
Earned in CTL by grabbing the other teams leader for as long as it takes to win the round. Must be done with bots set to "Fill" or in a match full of players.

ASSISTANT
Get (125/500/2000/5000) assists in Versus multiplayer.
Damage an enemy and let a teammate get the kill. Will surely come by itself if you plan to play in real matches online, if not, wait till you knocked out all the kill medals, then play KOTH or CTL with insane bots, find a place with a good view of the map and just spot and spray with your lancer, letting the bots do the killing.

MEDIC
Revive (50/250/600/1200) squadmates.
Press X while standing next to a downed teammate. These will most likely come while going for all the other medals, just revive whenver you have the chance. If you really want to knock these out fast, play CTL with a bot and a 2nd controller and turn friendly fire on. Keep hitting/shooting your leader till he goes down, then revive him, rinse and repeat.


COVER
Earn (10/50/200/600) Buttoned Up ribbons.
You earn the Buttoned Up ribbon by spending the most time in cover in a match, using a meat shield will also count as cover. If you have a turbo controller you can get these while you let your game sit by putting something heavy on the a button. You'll get this medal every match this way. Must be done with bots set to "Fill" or in a match full of players.

ACTIVE RELOADER
(500/2500/10000/25000) perfect active reloads.
Will most likely come naturally while going for kills, otherwise, the snub pistol is the fastest gun to reload, master it and spam reloads.

LANCER
Get (100/500/2000/6000) Lancer kills.
Chainsaw kills counts as well.

HAMMERBURST
Get (100/500/2000/6000) Hammerburst kills.

RETRO LANCER
Get (100/500/2000/6000) Retro Lancer kills.
Retro charge kills counts as well.

GNASHER SHOTGUN
Get (100/500/2000/6000) Gnasher Shotgun kills.

SAWED-OFF SHOTGUN
Get (100/500/2000/6000) Sawed-off Shotgun kills.

PISTOLS
Get (100/500/2000/6000) pistol kills.
Snub, Gorgon and Boltok are the pistols. Try to pick up a meat shield so you can work on "CAPTOR" at the same time.

VERSUS CONTINUED

SPOTTER
Spot (250/1000/5000/12000) enemies.
Aim at an enemy and press your left stick will spot them. Try to do this as often as you can while working on Rifle kills etc.

PYRO
Kill (50/300/1000/3000) enemies with fire.
Scorcher, Hammer of Dawn and Incendiary grenades are the fire-based weapons.

SAPPER
Destroy (10/50/200/1000) enemy grenades.
Shoot a grenade that is tagged to a wall or to the floor by an enemy. Easy, but tedious, to boost with a 2nd controller, just tag the smoke grenade you start with and shoot it with your main profile. You can also team up with a buddy for it, vietxx made a video for that.


GUARDIAN
Rescue (50/250/600/1200) leaders in CTL.
Make an enemy release your leader by throwing a smoke grenade at him/her or kill/down him/her. Chances are these won't come naturally, then you can put yourself and a casual bot on one team, a second controller on the other team. Put the bleedout to 5. Make it so the bot is the leader by finishing the first round (if he's not leader from the beginning.) then you just have to keep capturing him with your second controller and rescue him with your main profile. You can team up with a buddy to replace the bot if you want this to go smoother.


CTL
Play (100/300/1000/3000) CTL matches.
Set the capture time to 10 seconds. If you're going to idle play you can plug in a 2nd controller and set the number of bots to 1, make it so it's you and the bot vs the 2nd player. This will end the matches swiftly and you'll always win thanks to the bot on your team.

KOTH
Play (100/300/1000/3000) KOTH matches.
Set the ring score to 60. If you're going to idle play you can plug in a 2nd controller and set the number of bots to 1, make it so it's you and the bot vs the 2nd player. This will end the matches swiftly and you'll always win thanks to the bot on your team.

WARZONE
Play (100/300/1000/3000) Warzone matches.
I always fill these with bots and maybe even put the time limit at 2 to earn as many "Last Man Out" ribbons, you need 3000 of these for the "HARD TARGET" medal.

EXECUTION
Play (100/300/1000/3000) Execution matches.
I always fill these with bots and maybe even put the time limit at 2 to earn as many "Last Man Out" ribbons, you need 3000 of these for the "HARD TARGET" medal.

TDM
Play (100/300/1000/3000) TDM matches.
Set the stock to 10. Put the bots at "Fill" and enable friendly fire for faster matches.

WINGMAN
Play (100/300/1000/3000) Wingman matches.
The method I use is to use 2 controllers, put them on one team, make the amounts of bots 2 so it will be a 2v2 match. Set the time limit to 2 (For those really big maps like sandbar) and disable all weapon pick ups. The bots will rush and kill you almost right away for some reason, ending the match in 4 rounds.

ALLFATHERS
(Bronze/Silver/Gold/Onyx) Medal in all game modes.

MASTER-AT-ARMS
(Bronze/Silver/Gold/Onyx) Medal with all 5 starting weapons.

RIFLEMAN
(Bronze/Silver/Gold/Onyx) Medal with all 3 starting rifles.

HARD TARGET
Earn (100/300/1000/3000) Last Man Out ribbons.
Be the last person on your team to die, cannot be obtained in KOTH, Wingman or CTL. You'll knock out a great deal of these while afk-playing TDM/Execution/Warzone. If you still need more, turn on friendly fire and play private warzone games vs bots. As soon as the spawn protection is over, kill all your team mates with the gnasher and you'll earn a Last man out ribbon. Finish the match by suiciding or just kill everyone on the opposing team. Must be done with bots set to "Fill" or in a match full of players.

SHOCK TROOPER
Earn (100/300/1000/3000) First Blood ribbons.
Score the first kill of the round, can be earned in horde and beast as well but only once per session, not every wave. Must be done with bots set to "Fill" or in a match full of players.

OLD SCHOOLER
Curb stomp (50/250/1000/3000) enemies.
Press Y (don't hold) next to a downed enemy to execute them with a curb stomp. Stacks with "Finisher" medal.

BATTLE MISTRESS
Play as a female in (25/100/500/1000) matches.
The female characters are Sam, Anya, Civilian Anya (COG) and Myrrah (Locust). See VETERAN for quick method.

SOVEREIGN
Win (25/100/250/500) CTL rounds as leader.
Almost the same as untouchable, except you can get picked up, you get credit as long as your team wins the round.

SPECIAL TEAMS
Get (100/500/2000/6000) map-based weapon kills.
Every weapon that is not among the 5 starting weapons count as a map-based weapon.

HORDE MEDALS

FOR THE HORDE!
Completed all 50 waves of Horde on (Casual/Normal/Hardcore/Insane).
I have no good method for this yet, but playing with the mutators "Infinite Ammo", "Super Reload" and "Instagib" on helps A LOT. Read about a solo method here. MadmanRAB also made a video for it.


HORDER
Complete (100/500/1000/2000) waves of Horde.
Cumulative, you can do the first wave on casual as many times as it takes if you want.

ARCHITECT
Earn Founder ribbon (10/50/150/300) times.
You earn the Founder ribbon by building a base, it's the tower like structures that you have to build to even start playing horde. Cannot be earned solo and only once per session per person.


SQUAD LEADER
Earn Point Man ribbon (50/150/300/500) times.
You earn the Point Man ribbon by finishing a wave with the most points, cannot be earned solo. Easy with a 2nd controller.

FIELD ENGINEER
Complete (100/250/500/1000) fortification modifications.
Barriers, decoy, turrets etc all counts as fortifications. Building/repairing/upgrading/reloading counts towards this. These will come naturally while going for the 2000 completed waves. Here is a fast method.

BIG MONEY
Earn $(100k/500k/1mil/5mil) cash in Horde.
Everything that gives you points gives you the same amount in cash, completing challenges also earns you cash. It's probably best to keep playing boss waves with mutators on.

LOOT COURTESAN
Complete (10/20/50/100) challenges in Horde.
If you complete 3 waves in a row without dying, your next wave will have a bonus challenge for you. It can be different side objectives like getting a certain amount of headshots, executions, chainsaw-kills, turret kills etc.

BEAST MEDALS

I'M A BEAST!
Complete Beast without failing on (Casual/Normal/Hardcore/Insane).
There are 12 waves and you start with 1 minute on each wave, every kill you get will add time.

BEASTLY
Complete (60/180/360/600) waves of Beast.
Cumulative.

MOTIVATOR
Heal or revive (250/300/750/1500) teammates in Beast.
You have to play as the Kantus or Armored Kantus for this. Press X for your heal/revive scream. My method for these have been to join standard public games and play the savage drone until the kantus is unlocked, then I just play the kantus and spam X, can't heal all characters though, only those who are marked with a Locust emblem. You'll be surprised how fast this one goes up!

DISMANTLER
Destroy (150/500/1500/3000) fortifications in Beast.
The humans will build decoys, barriers, turrets etc. Destroy these by meleeing or walking through them. The Berserker is awesome for this purpose.

RUTHLESS
Kill (125/325/650/1100) humans in Beast.

INVESTOR
Earn $(100k/250k/500k/1mil) cash in Beast.
Same as horde, points = money.

HIGH ROLLER
Ready for the Heavies ribbon (5/15/35/75) times.
You get this ribbon by unlocking the final tier of locusts in a game of Beast, cannot be obtained solo. The more points you get, the faster you unlock new tiers. Unlocks at around wave 5 if using a 2nd idle controller. You have to actually buy and play with one of the highest tier locusts for this ribbon to count.

CAMPAIGN MEDALS


KING OF COG
Earn (1mil/2mil/5mil/7.5mil) total points in Arcade mode.
You'll get this naturally while going for all the other medals, if not, replay chapter 2-7 on insane as many times as it takes. See Afficionado video.

NUMBER 1
Number 1 in Arcade (20/60/120/240) times.
Load up Act II chapter VII or the prologue and make sure you play splitscreen with a idle 2nd controller, shoot anything or everything to ensure you get more points than the 2nd controller. See Afficionado video.

WARMONGER
Complete all Arcade chapters on (Casual/Normal/Hardcore/Insane)

FORCE MULTIPLIER
Maintain max multiplier in (10/30/60/100) chapters of Arcade.
Act II chapter VII again, can be done in less than 3 minutes.


SURVIVALIST
Complete (20/60/120/240) chapters without dying.
Act II chapter VII or the prologue again. You need to play co-op for these to count. See Afficionado video.

AFICIONADO
Play (50/150/300/500) chapters of Arcade.
Act II chapter VII or the prologue again.


DOORMAN
Manipulate (200/500/1000/2000) objects in campaign.
You earn credit towards this medal everytime you press a button, pull a lever or open a door etc.
Load up Act I Chapter I, after the cutscene with Jace you will climb up a staircase and open a door, right in front of you will be a piano. Walk up to it and press X to "play" it. There's also a piano right in front of you if you load up act 5, chapter 5. You can stop at any object scattered over the campaign really, like the thrashball tables, co-op doors (if you're playing co-op) or buttons. Mash your X button for about 1.5 hours and you will have the easiest and fastest onyx medal in the game!

TOUR OF DUTY
Complete campaign on (Casual/Normal/Hardcore/Insane).
Stacks with Warmonger and if you complete it on insane right away you won't have to redo it for the lesser valued medals.

Thanks for providing information goes to: rockinout69, Prowutski, Vindicator51, specularblinky, tigersrule, Foxfire49.

I still received my achievement for completing wave 1-10, even though I was playing with the Headless Chicken mutator on the entire time. I have not done all 50 waves yet, so can't confirm that one.

It's ok to play with any of the mutators except the easy ones which gives you -25% exp I guess.

How do you set the difficulty of Beast mode? I haven't seen that anywhere.

Dont think you can set the difficulty in public games, if that answers your question. Its hard to miss when you set up a private game of beast.

Figures that it's only available in private matches. Still, it seems a bit silly that you can't set up a public beast game like you want.

There is also a foosball table in the room where Jace is. It would save you a couple of seconds if you decide to go for it instead of the piano.

There is a bit delay every time you press the button on it, that's why i prefer the piano, it seems faster.

Agreed. I tried both and the piano was definitely faster. Great post on the Doorman Nikke...knocked out my first Onyx using your method...as boring as it was ...LOL

I tried the piano, but it didn't seem to work very well. After tapping the X button for about 15 minutes, it only went up like 30. It didn't seem to always register or something. Maybe you have to wait a little before you press it again. After using the foosball table for 15 minutes I checked and it went up a couple hundred.

It doesn't register every button press, it registers once every 3 sec or so. Took me about 1,5 hours with a turbo controller.

I have no good method for this yet. Not sure if mutators voids this.
I used mutators (super reload/instagib melee) and unlocked the silver medal on this, so mutators do not void the medal.

EASY MEDIC ONYX MEDAL!!! I can get on average 100 revives per game with this method. For the onyx medal you need 1200. I would recommend two controllers or more players for this. Start a private CTL game, put bots to fill, put the timer as high as possible, put friendly fire ON, and melee your leader and pick him up as many times as you want. It is much easier if the leader is the second controller, but it does not matter. You will NOT loose any XP since you get 50 for revives and loose 50 for downing him. If enemy captures your leader throw a smoke grenade for that medal as well. Hope this helps.

Update: If you only have 2 controllers the first game will make the first player the leader. After the first game the second player will always be the leader.
A faster way is just to gnasher the leader, press x, move a little forward, shoot and repeat.

Wait a second. So if you're main profile is player two, you would always be the leader after the first round?!?!?!? That would help A LOT with the untouchable ribbon.

make sure to set each game to 1 round. I just tried it and it works. I do not know if more than one round will work or not. If you play as the locust you will also get the female character medal.

Holy shit, that's a lot of medals! But it should be better than killing 100,000 enemies. lol what if it all ads up to 100,000 with all medals and to reach level 100? That'll be sick! Thanks for the thread, it'll come in handy! Now pics!

TOUR OF DUTY
Complete campaign on (Casual/Normal/Hardcore/Insane).
Stacks with King of COG and if you complete it on insane right away you won't have to redo it for the lesser valued medals.

just a heads up buddy...this medal stacks with the "war monger" medal not king of cog

Load up Act II chapter VII or the prologue and make sure you play splitscreen with a idle 2nd controller, shoot anything or everything to ensure you get more points than the 2nd controller.
Easiest way I found is Act 2 Chapter 7, like you say, but just leave all barges and Reavers alone (they can't kill you) until the last one, which gets in your way. Then just sit and wait for Myrrah to stop failing, then restart chapter. Only have to hit one barge.
