Gears of War 3

Gears of War 3 Achievements


Achieve level 100 a second time and choose to re-up for another tour.  

Remember what we did for "Time to Re-Up!" just a second ago? Do it again. That's right, another 3,851,750 experience and another option to "re-up" your profile, at what will essentially be level 200. But hey, at least that's the last time you'll need to do this for an achievement... right, Epic?

Note: Re-upping will remove the completed requirement of reaching level 100 for Seriously 3.0 - if you are close to earning all your Onyx medals, you may want to wait to re-up this second time... unless you plan to get to level 300!

Is this their idea of prestige?

@1 It's not like your not been forced to do it, besides Epic has only done this because of so many people complaining about how easy it was to get to level 100, and all the wasted exp from getting the Onyx medals, but the thing is people asked them for this because they WANT to keep playing.

damn.....well atleast i haven't accumulated any "wasted" XP. I thought this would happen so held off on the leveling up and it would appear it will pay off, sort of

Since I'm already working towards Seriously 3.0, I can't really complain about this achievement. I'm going to receive it during my quest for Seriously 3.0

Fuck this, I'd rather wait for those 20-30xp events about a year and a half from now and get both achievements over a weekend.

Saturday, January 07, 2012 @ 05:43:37 AM

insane horde with super reload and a couple of hard mutators can net you around 200k xp per hour if you play the entire game, wave 50 consecutive match bonus is insane ammount
so this can actually be done very quickly, added to the fact alot of people are already lvl 100 so will be re-uping day one means getting to lvl 100 only once more
just wish they'ed fix the reset glitch and give us the ability to use all this xp we've got in the mena while

Comment #17 by zarda1
Saturday, January 07, 2012 @ 07:03:07 AM

sounds like this is natural progression to the rest of the achievements anyway. if people didn't want this kind of achievement they wouldn't play this game.

Comment #18 by P1 Sephiroth
Saturday, January 07, 2012 @ 07:16:11 AM

@16 totaly agree, i have only done the events since getting lvl 100, no point in losing all those pts, can't wait for jan 17th :)

Comment #19 by Anoyo Ikari
Saturday, January 07, 2012 @ 08:37:41 AM

So my question is; Do you lose your medal progression when you re-up? Does anyone know for sure yet?

Comment #20 by Planet Chuck

I actually wanted them to make the achievement re-uping a 4th time and then achieving lvl 100...

Anyways, if you are getting to seriously 3.0 then your going to get this anyway...

I hate all these people that are like - "I'll wait till 20x xp comes out and I'll boost it then". How about you don't boost it stop winging like a little baby and just don't get it, no one is forcing you to do these are they. Jesus

I'm excited because it gives a lot of replay value to the game. I'm not excited cause as someone who loves to get all of the achievements for a game, this is gonna take me forever.

Comment #28 by pilule 1995
Saturday, January 07, 2012 @ 07:01:41 PM

This is retarded, I'm level 100 and I have 1.500.000 XP I've gain after hitting level 100 and they won't count. Stupid Epic.

Comment #29 by Lolsporeguy
Sunday, January 08, 2012 @ 12:14:13 AM

Um, anyone whos played call of duty knows that xp dosent stack towards your next level, thats been in gaming forever. Suck it up and get to 100 again.

am gonna go for this since i want 2000 on gears 3 but it is going to take's to no social life until 2014 lol

Comment #32 by GBisset
Sunday, January 08, 2012 @ 04:30:39 AM

#30 In simple words no you need to get to level 200 not level 300,when you get the second 100 you just need to re-up and nothing more

Comment #33 by CraKeL
Sunday, January 08, 2012 @ 08:49:54 AM

I can see a thew of you going crazy at this, I dont c y i dont Gears much any more but i have reached 100 and made over 2million xp more. a found a really good trick to help in the hard rank (70+) on Act 2 Chapt2, If you put it on insane arcade with x3 hard mutautors, finish the level with out going down, when you get to the finish it will show a ut scene saying Act 2 chapt 3 at this point u restart checkpoint then run up some stairs and repeat, around 400K per hour.

Comment #34 by sjmleicester
Sunday, January 08, 2012 @ 09:11:03 AM

Talk about wanting you to play a game until your are totally sick to death of it. There is nothing really wrong with Gears 3 but there are plenty or other good games out there and these new achievements are just effing tedious.

Comment #35 by Darkforce412
Sunday, January 08, 2012 @ 01:07:42 PM

i had no problem with the first re up but a second re up god dam this will take some time.

Comment #36 by Ethan27
Sunday, January 08, 2012 @ 10:40:00 PM


Well what would be the point? if they let you keep your 1,500,000 xp youd re-up close to twice without even playing, there would then be no fucking point in even re-uping at all, everyone would just get as much xp as possible to where they get both re-up achievements then stop playing

Comment #37 by Osckosh
Monday, January 09, 2012 @ 04:19:19 AM

Why do people think its gonna be like gears 2 with 30 times the exp??

Its alot easier to get too lvl 100 in gears 3 so i dont think they gonna do that this time around..

Think this is good for those how really play.. also u unlock cool wepaon skins for every time u reup..

Prettys sweet for those fans out there

Comment #38 by Falloutsider
Monday, January 09, 2012 @ 05:47:24 AM

i dont get the problem i think these achievements are the best in the game, if u want easy achs go play king kong

before the reup info ppl were moaning about how easy it was in getting to level 100 now they let u reup and then ppl moan about extra xp they're missing out on stop hating on the game

Comment #39 by maddick.holt
Monday, January 09, 2012 @ 06:33:47 AM

I agree @ 38, easy acheivements. It may take a while, I'm lvl 94 at the mo and thats just by playing it every now and again. But so easy.

Comment #42 by falconkeeper99
Monday, January 09, 2012 @ 08:55:49 PM

@#27: Not you personally, but the mentality in general... How does adding an achievement for this add any replay value to the game? I wish they would have left well enough alone and not required this for an achievement. Those who really enjoy the game will play often enough to have gotten this achievement, and those who don't/get bored will just end up finding a way to glitch and boost this...

Comment #43 by StormedKestrel
Wednesday, January 11, 2012 @ 03:24:43 AM

@40 there are no impossible achievements on this game (except, potentially, foreshadowing) there's just a bunch that are going to take an absolute age to get and will take patience to achieve

Comment #44 by PhyrexianZ
Wednesday, January 11, 2012 @ 08:20:18 AM

What's the best way to get XP? Horde on Insane or Versus online?

Comment #45 by Rascal5458
Wednesday, January 11, 2012 @ 11:49:02 AM

Horde on insane, I'm just glad I'm in the 90's and not someone who broke 100 weeks back and have since lost hundreds of thousands of xp..

Comment #46 by LimeFly
Wednesday, January 11, 2012 @ 03:45:28 PM

Horde on Insane with hard mutators is one of the best ways to earn XP. You'll get around 30k XP from wave 1-10, and you can just repeat those or try to go further if you have a good team. Add gamertag "LimeFly" if anyone is keen on doing Insane Horde with good players. Also, another great way to get XP is to boost arcade chapters on Insane.

Comment #47 by FoxViper1
Thursday, January 12, 2012 @ 04:02:28 PM

the only reason this sucks is because if you want both to be level 100 and get all the achievements you have to get to level 300

Comment #49 by Gh0st Biker
Sunday, January 15, 2012 @ 06:28:17 AM

You only need to get to level 200 to get this achievement..
And it is possible to reach level 400. If you look at the weapon skin-unlock menu then you'll see 3 skins you can unlock for re-uping.

Comment #50 by HVAC Techie
Sunday, January 15, 2012 @ 12:16:27 PM

You need to re-up twice for the achievements, but you need to re-up yet another time for the Re-up skin set 3. Definitely not going to be a common skin set...

Comment #51 by scatastrophes
Sunday, January 15, 2012 @ 03:56:43 PM

Could have been worse, you might of had to get the highest the 3rd time to level 100! :P Quite whining guys maybe by the end of it you'll be able to get a head shot with a Mulcher for 200 yards you'll be that good at the game :P Lol

Comment #52 by SchiZoPHreNiikz
Monday, January 16, 2012 @ 05:43:27 PM

I like this achievement! Gives me more motivation to finish Seriously 3.0!

Comment #53 by Shadow Reaper
Tuesday, January 17, 2012 @ 08:53:12 AM

@33, actually if you play act III chapter I, you can easily get about 700K-1M in 1 run, first off defend the gate as usual, when the catapult comes make sure you are on the right side, that way you have a clear shot on the maulers when they come in, kill the first two waves and let ONE mauler pass so that he breaks the gate, then fall back again and just keep killing them, they will eventually break into the garage, and then they will eventually knock the "last resort" into the yard DO NOT shoot it, it will end the level, when the level ends and your points are being tallied up, keep hitting start until the menu pops up, hit reload from last checkpoint and you start off with a good amount of points.

Comment #54 by CraKeLL
Sunday, January 22, 2012 @ 03:58:56 AM

@54 But u dont get much XP, Act 2 Chapt 2 Is the best 900-1000xp every 15seconds

im a little over half way to getting this achievement! im only a level 53 (2nd prestige) and still working on it! i hope they put more achievements about having to re-up more than two times though. i know im gonna be playing Gears 3 for a while so i might as well have something to look forward to rather than just sitting around with no goals to reach. i do play for fun but i also look forward for tough achievements. kinda makes my days go faster

Comment #58 by LimitingSleet3

anyone who has this already must be a no life. I mean, your were only able to perstiege since this map pack came out two or three weeks ago, and I've actually seen a couple people on second persteige already. It's rediclous.

Comment #60 by Boomzilla8
Thursday, February 16, 2012 @ 10:49:58 AM

It's crazy they don't give you the xp you've built up. Especially since they knew you'd have it. Why else would you get like 60,000 for reaching 100? You're already 100 why else would you need it? As for not re upping Till you have a kabillion xp? what's the difference you still played to get it.
