Gears of War 2

Gears of War 2 Achievements

Battle-Hardened Gear

Reach level 50 and play a match on each of the 4 Snowblind Map Pack maps (Public only)    

In addition to gaining more levels up to level 50, you will also need to download the Snowblind Map Pack (800 MSP) and at least play one match on each of the four maps in Public games. You do not have to win these games.

These two requirements can be done in either order.

For "play a match on each of the 4 Snowblind Map Pack maps" does playing Horde
work for that?

I got this achievement without winning any matches on the maps, all it says in the dashboard description is "Became an ultimate Gearhead at level 100"

Actually, just realise that if you get the 'whether outside is lethel' achievement then u must have completed all the snowblind maps and won

Strange, but I received this Achievement when playing a Custom Xbox Live game with one bot and a second controller.

This one is another one of those self explanatory achievements. Just reach level 50 and this one will unlock.

funny, i'm level 98 and i dont have this achievement. Every time I play a public match, it is never a snowblind map, it always puts me in one that shipped with the game or a flashback map. and yes, i own ALL of the DLC including snowblind

I don't know how, but I somehow got this in a Local game. I was going for Doing all the Snowblind Wins/plays on the Mappack Achievements, and when I did it I also
got this one..

PRobably Luck? or maybe it is just possible like this? Cannot confirm it though.

Anyways, Hope this might help people out. :)

You are absolutely right! Just start a Local Match with two controllers and a bot. Play through the 4 maps:

· Grindyard
· Under Hill
· Courtyard
· Fuel Depot

This will unlock the achievement, as well as the achievements for "The Weather Outside Is Letal" and "Frigid Body Dynamics".

I just got this Achievement (and the other Snowblind achievements) in Local Multiplayer with all bots and no second controller.
