If your beta unlocks did not unlock

Few things this could be.

First: Dashboard, and go back into the game. sometimes they simply don't unlock.

Secondly: if your profile is NOT on the same storage device as your beta save, they won't unlock. Simply move your profile and beta save to the same storage device and they'll unlock fine.

even if it's like this, they may unlock after dashboarding, for me they did not.

And if neither of those fixed it, and you have a beta save, then somethings wrong and you should head to the official forums for help.

from what i've gathered, these are the two main ways people are fixing it, including myself earlier.

I am having the same problem...

Everything else unlocked fine except the Dom achievement from Gears 1 for the chrome skin. I am glad I am not the only one having this problem, but I hope someone knows why it isn't unlocking.

Is this something that will be fixed with an update? I have the achievement, so it should have scanned it just like all the rest...

any insight would be much appreciated...

Did any of you play the game before the official release day??

Naughty boys if you did. It was reported on the official gears website that a title update will be available to download on release day and that this update will scan your achievements and give you the required unlocks. Anyone who played gears before the title update would have a problem and not receive some or all of the unlocks based on existing gears achievements from previous games.

Nope....

Went to the midnight release here in NY....It must be a glitch that they haven't fixed yet. I would like to have the skin, but if thats all I lose, I can live with it.....

Just curious why it has happened and if anyone knows how to fix it or if Epic is aware.

I have tried every posted method so far, and I still have not received my beta unlocks.

Everything else unlocked fine, besides my beta unlockables.

Is there no hope for us that lost our Beta saves?

I played the Beta and unlocked everything except for the week 4 weapon skin. Unfortunately my Hard Drive decided to die not long after and I had to get a new one.

Can I not access my stats anywhere or am I just screwed in terms of Beta stuff now?

This happened to me too like two days after the beta ended. I wished they would have saved the info on one of their servers. Boooooooooo

If the beta unlocks dont unlock when you press start on the title screen for the first time then go back to the title screen and press start again and the beta unlocks should come up. This worked for me.

I can confirm that if you deleted your Gears 3 beta from your hard drive the beta unlocks wont budge. I tried re-downloading the beta and it didn't work. Unless Epic can do something about it a lot of us are screwed.

When I loaded up my gears I didn't unlock the beta unlocks or the medal for it even though my save was on my new gears xbox I played campaign and went to the menu and all my beta unlocks were there. Hope this helps someone.

I ran into this same problem. Another method that works is to delete your profile (not your profile's saves) off of your Xbox and to recover it from Xbox Live. For some reason, my profile was displayed as having no gamerscore, avatar, gamerpic, or profile information, so I had to use that method to fix it up.

To everybody that deleted the beta, to be fair, Epic did warn everybody not to delete their beta data.

How are they ''Naughty boys'' when the game gets sent to them early and even epic gives them a congrats message on the title screen for getting it early ?

Also i got mine at midnight so its nothing to do with not having the update (all beta stuff unlocked first time).
Hopefully a fix will be out soon but tbh i'm ok if not as i'm rocking the pink retro lancer

I had a similar problem with my beta unlocks too, only because my beta save was on my old console. So what i did to fix it was, recover my GT back to my old console then load up the game which then unlocked all my beta skins on that console. Then i recovered my GT back to my new console, and hey presto there they are.

I still had the GOW 3 beta download, the GOW 3 beta title update, and GOW 3 beta gamesave on my hard drive when I got my unlocks. I never deleted any of it.
