Gears of War 3

Gears of War 3 Achievements

Welcome to the Big Leagues

Demonstrate your skill in Casual Versus multiplayer.  

If you have played either previous games in this series, this achievement will unlock automatically when you start the game and you will not have access to Casual Versus. If you have not played a Gears before, you will only be able to play this mode, and will advance (and receive this achievement) after some number of matches. It is basically a place for people completely new to the Gears multiplayer to get acquainted before being thrown into the mix with veterans. There does not appear to be a specific number of matches or level you need to reach before it unlocks, so the best advice I can give is to keep playing until you advance.

From what i hear, you can only play casual versus mulitiplayer if you have no achievements in ether Gears games or if you played the gears 3 beta making this achievement for me, impossible to unlock. There goes my trilogy completion :(

It's an achievement, it will count towards it the completed list. What's so hard about this one? Just seems like you have a play a game in Casual MP.

You're not allowed to play in Casual mode if you have played any previous Gears of War game, as noted in post #1, Einstein!

I really hope that Epic makes this mode open to everyone sometime after the game releases.

Betting it's like the Bioware continuity achievements: complete it if you
haven't played the previous games, if you have, whoopie! Free 'chievo.

@6 Im hoping is like that too, "If you played our previous games heres
an achievement worth 0G.

Hope this isnt counting for 100% since most of us are banned from this playlist : /

Comment #10 by KNIGHTOFSERA
Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 04:49:34 PM

hopefully it will unlock automatically for the rest of us because most of the people who are getting gears 3 played at least one of the others

Comment #11 by PrinceOfThralls
Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 04:50:49 PM

I don't care about the 100% completion, and also this is worth no Gamerscore, so it is not worth the effort just thinking about this shit achievement. If its all true what randoms say here about this then this achievo is a slap to the face for mostr of you lol

Comment #12 by Darkhound64
Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 04:54:30 PM

It was answered on the Gears Forum. You get the achievement free if you have achievements in gears 1 or 2

Comment #13 by Yourburntstar
Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 05:36:55 PM

another pointless achievement. Epic sucks with achievements so much. just like the retarded viral achievement no creativity at all and pure lazyness. oh we made a decent game so who cares what the achievements are.

Comment #14 by SpongebobRoundpants
Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 05:38:40 PM

I would think they would give this achievement as you load up you game to everybody if you already have achievements in Gears 1 and 2.

Comment #15 by OHSNAP
Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 05:40:47 PM

just a thought but i think casual is just a new name for social matchmaking.
as i recall the only thing completely new players get is a health and damage buff
until ten kills. my theory at least.

Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 07:30:44 PM

@17 Look at what 12 posted. I guess It's fine, but I don't understand what the point of this achievement is then :S just seems like a stupid idea...

Comment #19 by Kuroi_Shichi
Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 07:45:28 PM

@everyone: Look at what 12 said and stop complaining. Everyone can get it, since the rules by MS is all Achievements must be able to be unlocked.

@17 and 18, I think it's just a free chievo to say 'thanks for supporting our previous games' for those who have achievements from 1/2 and it's a free chievo for everyone else, who tries out the game at a friend's house or something. It wouldn't be the first game with a free achievement for popping in the disc, and it surely won't be the last.

Comment #20 by Hybridchld
Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 08:06:30 PM

Yeah read the posts before complaining all of us who have played gears 1 or 2 will get this achievement after playing a game of MP.

We "Demonstrate our Skill" by being too good to play casual MP ;)

Comment #21 by DeAtH434
Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 08:37:51 PM

The MS Achievement rule is that all 1000 points have to be obtainable but not neccessarily all achievements. If an achievement has 0 points like this one, they don't have to make this obtainable to everyone. An example of this is in B&K: Nuts and Bolts, where there's one achievement worth 0G that you can only get by playing the other B&K games.

This is a stupid achievement, really epic!

Comment #24 by NeoRizer
Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 10:02:51 PM

I'm almost certain that Epic said something like everyone starts on Casual multiplayer for the first game or two they play online. I think what it does is allows you to see the outlines of the opposing team if you hold the LB button. It's the same thing with capture the leader where the leader can see everyone on the map, blue is your team, red is the enemy team.

I don't think it's unobtainable, I'm sure you just play an online match for the first time and you will get it. Either that or you have to die and never get a kill for your first match and then it will switch you to casual for a round or two until your kill / death ratio gets better.

Could it be a possibility for getting level 100 in GOW2?

It is confirmed that this will unlock automatically for those who cant access Casual.

Comment #28 by MediumMelanin
Monday, July 25, 2011 @ 12:17:50 PM

What the flying fuck?! That'll be stupid if 90% of Gears of War 3 players won't unlock this, just because they've played Epic Games' previous Gears of War games.

Comment #30 by Comrade John
Monday, July 25, 2011 @ 02:49:24 PM

As posted on Joe Graf's wall on the official epic games forums (he's their lead programmer)

"The entire point of that achievement is for people that have played previous versions of Gears. It will unlock the first time you hit start."

So it'll automatically unlock.

Comment #31 by Nevander
Monday, July 25, 2011 @ 05:05:03 PM

Other achievements say "(Standard or Casual)," obviously you can play Casual, whatever it is.

To all people whining. If you have ach in other gears games, when you put in the game and start playing, this will pop first thing.

Monday, August 08, 2011 @ 12:27:32 AM

if this achievement effects it being a completed game then EPIC games fails at life or they need to make it open to everyone once and awhile.

If they detect that you have certain cheevos or have played the Gears beta then you get this achievement no matter what.

#45 Relax dude, I worked for MS Certification a while back and I can
definitley say that they would never certify a game with a non-obtainable cheevo!
It's bad for business! You'll likely get it when you fire up the game, or start a
MP game. Chill, Tuesday will rock!!

Comment #54 by Cooljoe
Friday, September 16, 2011 @ 05:54:25 PM

Yeah. If you played the previous gears, then this one should unlock automatically.

me n 4 mates got this game friday, only one of us got the cheevo, even tho all 5 of us have played both gears 1 and 2.. playing previous gears games does not unlock this cheevo.. (if it does mines n me mates must be glitched).

Tuesday, September 20, 2011 @ 11:47:49 AM

I don't have this achievement, my old account with 1k+ GS on gears 2 got banned and I've played the casual playlist but this still hasn't unlocked for me.
do you need to reach rank 10 as well or something? or get x amount of gamerscore?

Comment #65 by reignofrock

@64, I didn't get it when I got to level 10, I've played through Gears 2... apparently you have to play through both? I'm not sure, but if anyone figures this out, let me know.

Comment #69 by TheNarrator23

Wednesday, September 21, 2011 @ 04:10:06 AM

Have played through sp of gears 1 and 2...
Didnt get it at start up but rather casual play up to level 16.
So Maybe the ones who didn'T get it yet just have to keep playing
and have some faith ;)

Comment #78 by Echelon
Wednesday, September 21, 2011 @ 03:29:22 PM

I didn't get this until after I reached Act V for some reason. I've been playing
co-op and once the other profile logged out it popped up for me. It still hasn't
popped up for the first player person yet. Have patience people. ;)

I had to start a new profile recently and so I lost my 1000 and 1750 in gears 1 and 2. I played casual for a while and nothing poped, but all my friends got it first match.

Loaded up gears 1 and 2, and got a checkpoint... getting no achevements on either, then went back and played a casual match again and poped right after the match.

Not sure if it was how many I played of if loading up the old gears games worked. Give it a try.

Comment #100 by WesPhoenix
Sunday, September 25, 2011 @ 03:54:05 AM

if you've gotten to a certain level online on Gears 2 you'll get it at the press start screen but if like me you haven't played the first 2 (i have but i got a new GT and haven't played it on this one) you will have to play casual versus, once you get a good couple of games it will pop up, mine came up 2 rounds after i turned to level 13 so its got nothing to do with what level.
when its searching for games and it keeps displaying 'Cannot find games to match your skill level' chances are you'll get it in the next two games or something, i was worrying how to get it too but it will come just keep playing.

Comment #101 by Gruber Hof

Monday, September 26, 2011 @ 09:37:21 AM

I havent gotten this one either. According to post #30 its supposed to happen automatically when you first turn the game on. Well, Ive turned it on several times and even played vs on casual. Still no achievement. Ive finished Gears 1 and 2 as well.

Comment #108 by Will63081
Monday, September 26, 2011 @ 06:25:16 PM

Ok here it is people, think of it like training for multiplayer. Play games on casual until it pops up. If you have played Gears 1 or 2 and got multiplayer achievements or if you participated in the Beta it will unlock for you.

Comment #109 by mgray84
Monday, September 26, 2011 @ 10:34:30 PM

Fairly pointless in my opinion, what do 0 point achievements accomplish for people? Bragging rights doesn't seem to do it fir me.

Comment #110 by Zaft

To expand on what @108 said, you get this upon reaching Lvl 18, aka, when casual mode is no longer available too you.

Assuming you didn't play MP in Gears 1/2 or beta.

You can play MP in gears one and two! My god people are you this thick headed?! Just get over yourself, they wouldn't do that to their fans. You get it regardless you played online MP in gears 1 or 2. I have it, and it was the FIRST achievement I got.

I just got this achievements without having Gow1 or Gow2 played. Just keep playing casual until it pops after some time. I got mine after 20 casual matches.

I would say it's less about the lvl you aare and more about the amount of games you play. Achvment popped up for me after 20 games of casual versus. I was lvl 16 and 10 of those were gained in versus.

I would say to those who still have not had this achvment kick in, hang in there it will eventually

i Havent got this acheivement and i have played gears 1 2 and finished 3 but i havent played multiplayer on any game apart from gears 3 reason being i just got on gold a month ago. but my housemate has played gears 2 on multiplayer and got too level 2 and then played gears 3 and this acheivement popped up when he got too the start menu. so im pretty sure you have to play multiplayer on gears 1 and 2 then play gears 3. nothing to do with the main game.

hehehehe... this is hillarious... so much bickering over something so simple... I played a multiplayer match on Gears of War 3 on the 21st of Semptember and got this achievement right away after the very first match... by the way I had fully completed Gears of War and Gears of War 2, achievement-wise, before ever playing Gears of War 3... did not stop me from getting this achievement in any way... so for those of you who say that people cannot get this achievement unlocked if they have played the first two Gears of War games... are WRONG and CONFUSED

So basically no one knows for sure. They only know how it worked for them.

Some get it as soon as they start.
Some after playing a certain amount of gears 3.
Some who have played 1 and 2, some who haven't played either.

A bunch of us still can't get it. Which sucks. To those who troll or read 2 or 3 posts and then post something stupid in response, you suck.

I have 500 achievement points, and a bunch in both 1 and 2, and it hasn't unlocked for me, so you can understand the frustration. It is a stupid worthless zero point achievement, and the frustration stems from having to spend more than 10 seconds thought on it...

But I plan to keep playing and hopefully it will randomly accept me as one if its own soon. I also plan to stick Gears 1 and Gears 2 back in the xbox to see

@12 and evryone else who use #12 as a reference: I have achevements from both 1 and 2 and I beat the campaine and played Cas. VS and I still dont have this chevo.

So if #12 is correct then why isnt it unlocked for me?

My mate brought his gears 3 round for 2 player. My personal profile and the one others use for 2 player have achievements from gears 1 and 2. All my mate did was select casual versus from the main menu and he got the achievement. After a few games i still hadn't got the achievement, so we went back to the main menu and I selected casual versus, but no achievement.

???? WTF

Wednesday, October 12, 2011 @ 10:40:05 AM

there is one way of getting this, by accident my son got this by using a hard drive without any saves from any gears games, played the multiplayer at the start of loading the game first time and up it popped. i failed to get this myself as i went onto campaign to start with.

Comment #137 by anton_bp
Friday, October 14, 2011 @ 03:35:54 AM

I can play casual mode, but i got save files from both gears and gears 2...can i still still not get the achievmetn?

Comment #138 by anton_bp
Friday, October 14, 2011 @ 04:01:41 AM

Yes i can get it, has nothing to do with the other games, just play casual long enough and it will pop, for me it took 2 matches...And i was level 34 when i did it so that doesnt matter either.

Comment #139 by fijigus
Saturday, October 22, 2011 @ 04:52:41 PM

The achievement guide is wrong. I finally got this pain in the ass playing another round of casual mode. Easily the 5th time, maybe 10th I have done this, and I have 500+ achievement points in both 1 and 2, and have loaded up both games recently to see if I needed to download updates for them or something.

Glitched achievement basically. and for zero points it just makes it more annoying.

I just put in Gears 3 and got the achievement automatically. I didn't play the beta. I beat Gears 1 and 2 on Casual, Normal, and Hardcore. I beat 1 on Insane, but not Gears 2. Hope that helps? I also bought the season pass.

I played Casual Versus multiplayer, but didn't get the achievement! I played with mostly AI's, though. Maybe that was why I didn't get it?

Sunday, February 26, 2012 @ 12:28:15 PM

all you need to do is prove your skills by having more than 35 kills and less than 3 deaths and a moderate ammout of revives i don't think the downs matter and at least 3 pages or ribbons

that did it for me but i was messing around in versus in standard first then in casual (unlocked in casual)

gears 1, gears 2, beta??? don't worry about that!

i unlocked this achievement after playing few matches on Casual Versus game mode (I haven't even won all matches)

After that you will not be able to play on Casual skill level.
