Pretty good guide Pants. Still not too happy with that power trip you went on in the Dead Island forum by closing a legit thread but ya, glad to see a decent guide up already.

Thanks for the replies, everyone. I added some of the tips to the guide, fixed some of the spelling and informational errors and added some more questions that we need to clarify for "Welcome to the Big Leagues" - seems like that one isn't quite working as intended and we need to nail down exactly what you need on your Hard Drive or Gamertag for the game to recognize you've already played the series before, as well as what requirements have to be met if you do get stuck in Casual.

Predni: I did see your video when I was looking for one to use, but I didn't really want to use it since it's in German. I know you have the English text, but it was just off-putting for me for some reason. Hope that doesn't sound rude. :/

Another guide Pants. As for the Socialite Achievement Ive come up with theory as to why it doesn't work for some. The event is for you to unlock your gold weapons and if you already have so many achievements in Gears 2 and or played the beta then you will unlock the gold weapons as soon as you load the game, so in theory because you already have the gold weapons the game wont log in the events progress because you cant unlock them.

Also the next Event is the weekend after next (Big head mode) So if a patch hasn't been released to sort it out (Hopefully not) then it could still work then.

I suggest loading up chapter 2 - House of sand. There was a few cleaver dudes there.

Does anyone know which chapter the one shot is in. It's the last ones i need.
The One Shot is in Act 3 when you defend Anvil Gate or in Act 2 when you sneak into the Locust base to hijack the Gas-Barge ( when you have to kill the guards without them sounding the alarm.)

Also: I got the 0G achievement when i started up Gears 3: Played 1+2, completed both of them on insane, and am a level 100 in Gears 2, hope that helps figuring out when this unlocks...^^'

I don't know if this is worth mentioning, but you don't seem to gain xp from private horde matches. Unless the game dicked me out of xp.

If the Cleaver is in the campaign (thanks for the suggestion), then no execution requires Horde mode. I did every single execution in Versus mode except the Cleaver. This method obviously requires you to unlock the weapons' executions, but that is something I wanted to do anyway since I play Versus and Horde alot.

Also, kills with the Butcher in Beast mode don't count, in case anyone was wondering...

I would make the Estimated achievement difficulty: 10/10.

If something takes a ton of hours. That would make it a 10. Most people will never get 1000.

FYI: The difficulty trick does not work in Arcade mode. Everyone gets set to the host's difficulty there.

Also, EPIC said there is no set amount of xp for lvl 100 yet. They are going to see how fast people level up and tweak the percentage for a while.

I believe on the very first chapter of Act III there's one behind the left turret if you're facing the area the Locust are spawning at during the very first fight

Insane difficulty is unlocked by first completing the game on any other difficulty. I would suggest saving your Insane playthrough to couple with the 4-player "We Few, We Happy Few..." achievement, as that will make it quite a bit easier.

The trick from Gears 2 returns here as well. If you have a friend who would like to help you, they can set their difficulty in co-op to Casual while you play on Insane, and they will be able to mow down all the enemies while you hang back out of danger. So long as your personal difficulty is set to Insane you'll get credit for it - however, they will not.

In the Chapter Select menu, you will see an icon in the upper right corner indicating which difficulty you have completed it in.
I've joined someone elses game in co-op. There's no way to change difficulty from the menus? It always puts me on the skill level of the last single campaign I load.

For instance if I join another player in co-op after loading a campaign myself on insane it sticks me on insane even if they are on casual. I cannot see any way to change this?

Basically to get help on insane other players need to load up a casual save first then join you.

I'm under the impression that 4-players in campaign does break the game as it seems it was built for 2 players, but decided to have 4-player co-op anyway.
You cannot be revived on Insane. If you get dropped you instantly die. Regardless of single player or co-op.

in the mission where you have to shoot the guys before they sound the horn, there is one (maybe 2) next to the crates after you shoot the 1st guy and before the next two.

It isn't just tons of hours, MVP (most points in a match) just to name one, takes a lot of skill to get the number required, Onyx will probably be at least 500 probably more unless Private matches count for medals, which I doubt... even then millions of hours of boosting like Pants said.
(Well after posting I was informed a lot of these can be done solo in private with bots, so not that hard, but Horde and campaign on insane will still be pretty tough)

For Big Leagues (I said I would edit but there have been a lot of replies) I played a few matches, am now 20 I can still access casual mode and did not receive the achievement. I could have sworn I heard/read somewhere that once at 18 casual becomes unavailable, but obviously this is not the case, at the very least for me. I even restarted the game to "reload" all the progress and same thing applies. SO I don't know what to say.

Yeah, you can get the One Shot (and also Mortar) near the start of Act 2, Forced Entry. I suppose it'll probably be easier to alert the enemy, if not you can also use them on the ones who come out from the side gate. You can also get it in Airborne (also Act 2), after defending the first wave, and after Dizzy opens up the ammo stash (which also has a Hammer of Dawn, Torque Bow etc.).

Obviously I can only speak for myself but 'Welcome to the Big Leagues' popped for me as soon as I booted the game. I have the Beta still on my HDD but nothing at all from gears 1 or 2 (different console), I have played both so I do have achievements from 1 and 2 on my gamertag.

I'm sure Epic will fix this issue. From the achievement description it seems you just need to play a casual match or a few at least, obviously the achievement popping right away if your casual match access is blocked. Maybe me jumping into standard right away kept it from popping? But even so, you would figure with my gears 1 achievements on my card I "shouldn't" have been able to even access casual. I kinda feel bad for playing it, as I am not new to the game really, I hold my own in normal matches, and tend to be MVP almost every match in casual, but I want my cheevo!!!!!!

Private matches do count for the medals, and this achievement is a pure grind because of it. Just play against Casual bots in private matches and 1 billion hours later you'll have the achievement.

The 0G Cheevo popped for me as soon as I loaded up the game. It flashed up the few things I'd unlocked (gold lancer, chrome, etc.) then the achievement popped up. If it's any easier to work out the truth behind this one, my Gears history is by no means illustrious.

Firstly, I've never had any access to any betas for any of the Gears.

I completed Gears of War on Hardcore (after being stuck on Raam for months, maybe years, on casual I just got pissed off and started again on the next level up. Strangely, it did the job). I played maybe 5 games online. Got about halfway through the campaign with my friend on co-op. Didn't find the cogs (missing 1, and I can't find the lil' sod)

I completed Gears 2 on the second hardest difficulty (normal? 2 '*' logo), then went through it again same difficulty on co-op. Got all the collectibles, all the kills (bar one or two, possibly the tagging a downed enemy with a grenade one) and get to level 18 in Horde. Didn't do Online Multiplayer at all.

My friend who I played through Co-op with hasn't had this one pop for him yet, either.

So I don't know if that helps much.

As far as the One Shot goes, if you're too slow when you're infiltrating the Locust Base, the wild tickers may actually steal it: The first time I did that bit, it wasn't there, I died and restarted and when I got there a little quicker, there it was, up against the crates. You might just need to get there a little quicker. Also, in the locust compound, I remember picking up a cleaver in the bit you get locked down in with a couple of young Corpsers: some Butchers came in at that point for me.

I think you have to gain the most points 60 times...20x is only enough for Bronze medal
