Gears of War 3 Achievements

Witty Repairtee

Build or repair 50,000 worth of fortifications as Mechanic Baird LE.  

Choose Mechanic Baird for your 50 waves for Unstoppable force and Horde Natural and build/repair fortifications whenever you can. This should come easily while going for the other 2. Easy mutators do not affect how much money you earn, nor do they affect how much of the money you spend 'counts' towards the achieve. The only thing that increases $$ earned is difficulty and it isn't worth the trade off. We did it on Casual with 3 easy mutators and all 5 of us had this by wave 50, with plenty to spare.

Well, get used to seeing ONLY mech baird LE in all the horde matches now! What a dumb achievement. The only good thing is that at least $50,000 isn't too much considering the other gears3 achievements.

Will the difficulty matter for how much money is actually counting toward the
achievement or is it the same thing

the difficulty shouldn't matter, all that effects is how much money actually goes towards the level upgrades

Best thing to do is build and repair the silverback since it takes up the most money or at least I think so

This shouldn't be too bad, just play Horde with Baird LE or whatever.

How are people trying to boost this. It's 50,000. You can make that in 10-20 waves.... Stop being so damn lazy

"Found the right man for the job!"

Unlocked in the 1st 10 waves on Normal, and I died 3x.
Not hard at all folks.

Build lots of stuff in one area, and keep repairing it.
Big explosions help.

I picked Mechanic Baird LE, but I started as Marcus.
When I died and restarted from current wave, I was Mechanic Baird LE.
So don't freak if it happens to you.

I can't seem to be able to select Mechanic Baird. I have bought the Forces of Nature DLC, but can't select it. :-S

I got Mechanic Baird from a preorder bonus. Does that still count? I don't have the Forces of Nature DLC.
