|Earn the Onyx "War Supporter" medal.|
This medal requires that you participate in 30 "Gears events" which can be found using the Event Calendar on the main menu of the game. Make sure you play whatever mode is required for the event at least once to get credit. Sometimes it will have its own playlist, sometimes it'll be in normal Horde, etc.

is this for MP assists? I can't remember from the Beta

Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 05:30:53 PM
its when you click in the left stick to spot the enemy for your whole team to see them with a arrow above their head breifly. i loved playing the beta, and i almost got 1000 spots cause i thought it was sweet that they added that. i just wish everyone used it more

Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 06:37:41 PM
I swear I was the only one of my friends that actively used the Spotting.
The medal level I got up to by the end of the Beta was my highest, 7.
|Comment #4 by collin232|
Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 06:48:33 PM
So it's 70g for 1000 spot assists? The 1000g gets easier and easier.
|Comment #5 by Russy01|
Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 07:02:23 PM
@4 it will probably require more than 1000 for the main game as that was just the beta, while as it will span across all modes for the full game. Also, the fact that its an achievement may cause more players to use it.
|Comment #6 by Wreckon Dracgon|
Sunday, July 24, 2011 @ 07:59:48 PM
In the beta it required more than 1000, 1000 got you to one star... to get to Oynx you needed 5 stars so 5,000. Again those were for the Beta, for the final it could be more than 1,000 to get one star.

It's not for spotting. According to the leaked copy it's for participating in so many Gears events. (i.e. holiday events or whatever)

So if your acquired ribbons and stars for metals in the beta will all that carry over into the full game in addition to weapon and skin unlocks?
|Comment #37 by alklein35|
Wednesday, September 14, 2011 @ 12:38:02 PM
@36 I doubt it. And honestly, I hope not. I made great progress in the beta, but some of the stuff (like gameplay, balancing, etc) are different and makes the medals harder or easier for some in the final game. I hope they don't carry over, and I can't see Epic doing that.
|Comment #38 by Cooljoe|
Friday, September 16, 2011 @ 08:19:45 PM
Well, either way it'll be easy. Either we wait for events or we spot for our teammates. Easy. Besides, the spotting in this ul get me ready for the spotting in bf3 1 way or anotha.

no the spotter medal is for spotting, the war supporter medal is for attending gears of war 3 events which what i assume is stuff like double xp and stuff like that. there is a site that has a list of what the medals are and descriptions for each. why would they name the achievment socialite if it was for spotting?

|Comment #43 by tru89x|
Monday, September 19, 2011 @ 06:20:21 PM
This is actually pretty easy to get because they are doing a launch event right now and all you have to do is play so many matches during an event going on. This is also how you get the Golden Gear skin for multiplayer is play 5 matches during this. So if you play enough matches this first week you can probably get this by the end of the week.
|Comment #44 by xXNINJEDIXx|
Tuesday, September 20, 2011 @ 05:53:37 AM
Check the Event Calendar, it will show you upcoming events, just play enough events and eventually you will get it.
|Comment #45 by Hybridchld|
Tuesday, September 20, 2011 @ 03:46:12 PM
@43 you get Onyx for playing in 30 different events not 30 games during an event.
@42 yeah there was a bug thats since been patched that let some people get this earlier, enjoy being on of the few people with this for the next few months.

The glitch is known by epic staff...The (i) shows up because of the Golden Wings Week event currently going on. It will disappear everytime to dashboard or restart Gears, but will return after your first Versus Match
|Comment #51 by AfterTheFire|
Friday, September 23, 2011 @ 02:04:37 PM
It isn't for spotting
It is for participating in Gears Community events
Everyone has 1/5 because you played the Beta
Other community events are going to when they have special playlists like bunny heads and big heads.
Things like big heads and bunny heads aren't going to be integrated into every playlist like they were in the beta, they are going to have their own playlists. when you play in the playlist it will give you another one up.
Right now, most people have 1/5 cause of the beta.
Play in big head mode (or any playlist like it) when it is launched and you'll then have 2/5
|Comment #52 by dab198|
Friday, September 23, 2011 @ 07:52:18 PM
It'll certainly take a while to get the Onyx medal anyway, depending on how often the events take place, and just how many are needed for that level of medal.
Interesting tactic to keep people coming back to Gears 3 though.

It was bugged, Epic have already patched it. You could get the Onyx medal from playing in matches vs bots, or versus online. It was supposed to be for taking part in events (check the Events Calendar in game).
Shouldn't be too hard, but you now only get one 'mark' per event, no matter how many times you take part in it.

Well all we can do is hope Epic doesn't spread them out and makes them far more often than they did with Gears of War 2. Wasn't it something along the lines of 20 to 30 XP events over a year? Personally I dont want to be trying to get this achievement a year from now, a few months maybe but not THAT long.

its a glitch that was patched day one, where every match played counted as a special event... so in theory if you cleared your cache and didnt install the update then you "may" still be able to do it.
how people have seriously 3.0 already i dont know, but i really doubt it was legit... either glitched or hacked... ive played alot and im only at rank 75 with 23 onyx.

i doubt it, because if u dont apply the patch u cant play online, which is needed to participate in the event.
no. 30 events, 1 match on each event day, will unlock this achievement.
there are (so far) 2 events each week. that means 15 weeks, or 4 months to complete this, if u play on all event-days.

Ok so this happened:Before playing the event ranked can you dig it? On nov 4 I was 6/10 and I already played the event the day that came (Friday) and I got the ribbon then I played ranked on the sunday morning and I counted now I'm 7/10 so let's see what happens at the end of sunday
|Comment #116 by Metallichepe|
Sunday, November 06, 2011 @ 10:37:32 AM
But something that I don't understand is that I always play the event on Fridays because that day is the event is Playable and then sat or sun I play the event ranked and It never counted extra like today (nov 6) so it still glitched and I'm getting the achievement because is glitches and it's different when people glitched seriously 2.0 this is like the player doesn't know so it's not like my achievements are back to 0 this is the good glitch lol

Same here, I unlocked the Onyx "War Supporter" medal and didn't even know it.
Unlocked on Nov 6th, 2011.
I was playing Wingman games over and over for kills.
I've earned the Onyx for this medal twice now.

This also happened for me - I was playing private CTL games between two players. But it only worked for the player who was not the host. Also, both players need to change teams a few times (Y button) before the start of the match for it to work.
It seems Epic caught this and corrected it though - I can't get it to happen again. I had let my system just run idle matches for hours. When I came back to check my onyx War Supporter medal had a "6" under it and stopped at 15. I collected 30K exp every time it turned over.

I got this one by anccident. I set my system to Local and 2 controllers so i could get some of the 10,000 matches out of the way. I went to bed and woke up the next day, checked my medals and there it was. I emailed epic about this. No response yet. I have not been banned or warned because it was something that was out of my control. This is only my 3rd onxy medal for the 65 needed... and i am only lvl55.

This achievement is still glitched just got it yesterday where every match counted who knows how long this glitch will last before Epic patches it so if anyone wants to get this done play the next event playlist as much as possible. FYI sometimes exiting out of a match and going back in after it starts glitching will stop it and vice versa, it may start glitching again if it isn't and u exit out and go back to the playlist.

|Comment #130 by Pay4NameChange|
Thursday, November 17, 2011 @ 06:18:09 AM
Basically I can't get it, and I think it's because there isn't an event on right now, but none of the walk throughs say there must be an event, and many say you need the DLC....
So confusing....guess I'll have to wait until the next event.

DancingCorndog go to system settings (all the way to the right) and select memory; Highlight the hard drive and then press Y to go to options and select clear cache. You will have to redownload all your game updates everytime a you play any of your games but it seemed to help me.

Wednesday, January 04, 2012 @ 01:53:16 PM
Do these events have to be on the calendar, or can it be any event playlist they have? Like right now there is the playlist "We're all Stranded now", but it's not counting for me. I cleared my system cache though and it finally updated my calendar, and the event listed is for this weekend, "Stranded KOTH." So I guess my question is, is it only weekend events that count?
|Comment #157 by Miko88|

Sunday, January 08, 2012 @ 10:10:34 AM
I think all weekend events count towards this, but the ribbons just aren't popping. I think when they patched the original problem, it messed it up for the legit earners too. So if ur not getting the ribbon, clear your cache as said above, and it should work. I'm having this problem every week since December. And @156, you only get one medal per event, not per match.
@159, there is normally one event per week, so if it is 30ribbons, that will take 30 weeks. Hope this helps.
So frustrated that its not working properly.

Thursday, January 19, 2012 @ 12:53:28 AM
Apparently everyone glitched this when they could, they also abused this glitch to level up prestige twice, what i mean is, there is 2 ways, 1 is to get the ribbon and unplug ur lan cable, so it doesnt upload that u got the ribbon so u can do it infinite times on 1 ribbon, and still counts, the other is to go offline clear ur HDD cache play capture the leader(or whatever the default first offline event was) and repeat that infinite times, for the socialite achievement, and to also get the 30000 experience per match from recieving the socialite onyx medal EVERY SINGLE MATCH, < really fast levels and this is how the world first people do it. i havent tried it yet but am going too since u cant get banned for it apparently.

It doesn't matter what match you play on which ever playlist you chose, as long as it's an online public match that you play during the event, you'll still get the event ribbon and it'll still count to the war supporter medal. Before I had forces of nature, I'd get them from playing public horde.

Hey I am currently at 20/30 for War Supporter and the last few events have worked for me. Up until the last two weeks last week there was a playlist called "One Shot, One Kill" which I remember being one of the first War Supporter events way back about a month After Gears 3 came out or so. So I think they are recycling the events they have already done. God this is Left 4 Dead 2's Mutation achievement all over again I hate achievements like this because you are always at the Mercy of the developer to get off their ass and make new events.

I just read all 217 comments before mine and no one has mentioned this; why when I view the Event Calendar in the Gears menu does it show the same events no matter what week it is, and every event on that list has already past?
Where are you guys seeing these updated event lists because I sure as hell am not?

i'm stuck at 29/30 for the last six weeks now. So much rage...Epic Fail Epic
@218 : Me neither. The event calendar has not been updated since Mars 27.

So after 8 weeks I finally got a ribbo now I'm at 28/30
It was called " judgement is coming"
Sum1 told me the are recycling the ribbons
There was 35 original weeks, and they restarted and they e at like week 7 or 8
They also said that depending on what weeks u missed are the ones u can actually get
Cuz u can't get the same week of ribbon twice

Seems as if the events are just not enough for this ..
|Comment #222 by Ravenskull666|
Sunday, July 08, 2012 @ 03:35:05 AM
@223 how do u know u can't earn the same ribbon more than once? It makes a lot of sense and is the first rational theory so far as to why we are not getting these the second time around. The trouble is, I'm on 28/30 and have no idea which ones I'm missing.
The only way to remedy this, Epic, is to have a pool of say, 45 events at least so I'm not wasting 60 weeks trying to get this!!
|Comment #223 by BFMV Jay|
Thursday, July 12, 2012 @ 09:54:25 AM
@225 its not a theory its actually true, heard it from friends and comfirmed it by reading an article on gearsblog.com
i have the same problem as you im at 28/30 and i dont know which ones i missed either, u just got to play at least once every week to see if they give you a ribbon, and like i said they ONLY made 35 different ribbions so u just got to get lucky and play on a week that u didnt play on the first time around

I guess I'm not the only one having problems with this. Whenever I go online to play, I make sure that I play anything new, but usually they're not events, so I'm basically stuck at 19/20. I really don't understand why they don't just let everyone know what's going on with this.

Monday, July 16, 2012 @ 07:06:58 PM
I have a dummy profile on which I copied my stats using the rank transfer glitch (similar method from gears of war 1 & 2 seriously glitch) with 29 events played. Im willing to let anyone borrow it, just mp me. I recently unlocked seriously 3.0 and I made a copy of my stats one horde wave away from the cheevo onto another dummy, which is also available for you guys who don't wanna spend thousands of hours aiming for that achievement.

I have literally EVERYTHING for Seriously except ONE LAST F***ING EVENT. It glitched this week so now I will have to wait a whole week untill I can try getting another one. I don't care if they change the gears event but it should count either way.

Friday, September 07, 2012 @ 07:51:04 PM
anyone know when the next event is? and does it matter where you play it? like can you go on verse's and play warzone for example and keep playing that till you're 1 step closer to you're achievement or is it on force of nature? i have no idea xD i have 8 out of 10 so far so need 22 more to get to 30 for the onyx and the achievement, so if anyone can help me i would appreciate it. thanks

Woohoo!! Only took me a year but I got it! I've forgotten the past few weeks to even go on, but remembered tonight and got it!!! It came up as JUDGEMENT is coming (again) ^_^ I'm a happy girl

Are there still events? I would like to work on this medal but I don't see any event playlists...at least not where I think they should be. I got a few at launch, but still need 20 more to onyx.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Friday, September 28, 2012 @ 02:52:34 PM
One of the worst achievements ever, hands down. I just read that you CAN'T miss ONE event in a cycle! It doesn't keep track of what events you've done, it takes like 8 months, and the calender doesn't tell you about the events anymore.
|Comment #242 by GazzaAwesome|

Does anyone know how to earn this achievement ? What events are there ?

Tuesday, October 23, 2012 @ 09:11:14 AM
I was going to finally start properly playing GoW online to try and get this (tried a few matches on GoW 1 and 3 a few months ago, hated it), but seeing how screwed up this achievement is I'm not going to bother.
|Comment #244 by Rum Ninja|
Wednesday, October 24, 2012 @ 07:17:21 AM
If you missed an event you'll have to catch it on the next rotation. There is no way to know what event is coming or active. Just have to pretty much play a round or two every weekend until you "fill in the blanks" so to speak. It sucks but that's just the way it goes. I'm currently 25/30 and I've only got one new ribbon for the last 6 weeks, just keep up with it and it and you'll get them eventually.

Anyone know if/when there will be anymore events? Personally I think it's kind of ridiculous that they don't just cycle old events weekly so that it's possible to obtain the achievement.... Typical Epic Games move though I guess; make at least one cheevo damn near unobtainable.
|Comment #247 by HR1 Phoenix|
Thursday, November 08, 2012 @ 07:23:41 PM
I booted up the game today after 13 months away and the cheevo popped for me after a single quick match of the Boom Snipes playlist, from the Forces of Nature DLC.

I logged in today and the achievement/medal tracker popped up and said I was at 29/30 events. I had only five or six before this. Played one game of TDM and achievement popped. Hope this stroke of luck happens to anybody else.

Out of all these comments I am still confused on how I got this achievement...I haven't done any events or spotted anyone barely cause I suck...I have played online like 15 times total...I got this achievement on accident somehow like the 3rd time I ever played right after I stole an execution from some other guy. I still don't know what it means...Oh well....
|Comment #256 by akwoz|
Monday, December 17, 2012 @ 09:05:50 AM
They did an update and it gave everyone who didnt have the achievement yet 29/30 needed because its kinda ridiculous for people who got the game late and couldnt rack up enough special events. I just logged on for the first time in a while yesterday and it gave me 29/30.

Monday, February 17, 2014 @ 01:38:33 PM
Epic stopped supporting 'Gears Events' less than a year after the game was released making this achievement impossible to get for anyone who hadn't participated in earlier events HOWEVER, they did end up releasing an update to the game several months ago automatically giving this achievement to anyone who completed a multiplayer match via Xbox Live. I believe this is still the case.
|Comment #277 by HareJordan23|

So does anyone know a way to actually get this now. I actually worked hard for this i played in about 26 gears events when i stopped playing then when i got back on one day it gave me 29 after i played a game. I have played everything and the event it always on torque bow tag or whatever and i have played that along with everything else in the game and i still havent been able to get this.
