|Earned the Onyx "War Supporter" medal|
War Supporter is a medal that requires you to play in Gears events. Go into the Versus menu and you will see Special Event on the list. You must play these until you unlock the medal. They normally change events every week.

I cannot believe they have put this in again. It was so broken on GOW3 and there was so much beef online, I cannot believe they haven't learned their lesson. Bullshit cheev

They are so desperate to keep people playing, maybe if they had good DLC people would want to play it. Don't get me wrong, I love gears but I was expecting good story/multiplayer content and it was a huge disappointment. A lousy chapter, and character skins? As for war supporter, I had 28/30, was a 80s green rank and got all my stats reset for no reason. Luckily they made it so you have 29/30 but good luck getting the last medal since they just recycle the events

Meh, at least it keeps me playing the game for a little while. When doing this for Gears 3, even when the event in question sucked, I usually stuck around to play some regular matches or Horde once I had the game on.

You all QQ far too much, I got the war supporter medal legit as well as seriously 3.0 fairly easily, if you enjoy Gears of War this will be an achievement you get anyways. Stop bitching children

i like how people are bitching about this, get it when it comes out, play it atleast once a week, if your MP like me and gears fan, then getting this wont be bad at all, so as long as they change the events and they were pretty good for that for when GOW 3 just came out, so ya if your looking for 1000GS on this one, its looking like the easiest GOW game to date. If you want GS and thats all then play other games MP games are not ment for GS boost, and honestly it is just a number, who the hell cares, just enjoy the game :)

Sunday, February 10, 2013 @ 11:27:14 PM
Eh. Play an event once a week, move on. It wasn't that bad, but it did have some unlocking problems for some, which are hopefully addressed.

If you complainers are lucky they'll start giving the medal already at onyx to people who buy the game way late like they did in gears 3.

Hopefully the medals are reasonable and hope if you onyx in Judgment they auto onyx Seriously 3.0 in Gears 3 since that is bullspit and booster paradise

Maybe this one will be glitched like the one in GoW3 was before they patched it? If so, I am ignoring my "no I want it legit" belief and am getting this stupid pain in the ass achievement.

I hate this achievements that are just made to keep you playing so then you get bored and buy dlc. In the end you bought all dlc while shooting for this. I didn't do it in GoW3 and I shall not do it again, I have other games to play.

30 weeks, that blows! just plug the game in once a week, i hope epic will have something like the cluckshot again. so far gow has not let me down despite unfixable derankings. no doubt they will have interesting weapon loadouts, like dirty diaper grenades or something. as long as i am entertained i will play. lets just hope they can keep us happy with great dlc.

This game is so fucked up, I have 59/60 achievement this being my last achievement needs to 100% this shit game. But apparently some of my friends say I have it unlocked when they check my profile. I checked I still have 59/60 which is 1200 gamerscore. They say my account my be glitched for this achievement is that true?

This will be pretty easy for me seeing as I like this multiplayer more than Gears 3. It just seems more balanced.

Monday, June 10, 2013 @ 11:16:35 AM
Just wanted to add this since no one has said this yet...Doing every event since launch will net you this achievement on October 11th, that is if they change events every Friday like they have been. 6 1/2 months for one 'chieve, kinda reminds me of the one for Crysis 2. On well, I'm in it for the long haul.
|Comment #41 by Aceprobe|
Sunday, June 16, 2013 @ 09:57:37 AM
Since no one has said it I'll clarify that you have to go to: Verses>Special Events to paticipate in "Gears events". You can see which event it is on the bottom when you highlight that option. You can also track how many you've played under Stats and Awards.

So i've been on 29/30 for 3 weeks now. Why arent they changing the one shot one kill event!?!?!?!?!?!?! grrrggghhhh!

Monday, November 25, 2013 @ 05:42:29 PM
This achievement is glitched!!!! I play a special event every week (Longshot) and I don't get the medal. I check my stats and it says I have participated in 9 events but NEVER increases after that. WTF. I will never get this achievement :(
|Comment #52 by Reggiez|
Saturday, November 30, 2013 @ 10:49:51 AM
@ HolaOswaldo: I don't know if some people have had this achievement glitch but what is happening to you hopefully has more to do with the problem everyone is having right now. Epic/People Can Fly are not updating the event every week. They have only given out two "Special Event" ribbons during the last month or so.
Just playing a game every week will not give you anything as long as they haven't updated the ribbon as well.
|Comment #53 by Buruma|
Friday, January 03, 2014 @ 04:51:59 PM
This may potentially be unobtainable now. If you haven't started this game yet, for whatever reason, I'd advise against it until Epic makes some changes. They have been updating these special events less and less often. Some people have been waiting over a month for one event now. I got lucky and obtained my last ribbon a couple of months ago but even then the wait between updates was ridiculous. Feel bad for the people still struggling for their last few. =(
|Comment #54 by De Vuilnisman|
Monday, January 06, 2014 @ 06:00:49 PM
There is a rank transfer glitch that has been possible since GoW1, which allows you to copy stats from a certain account to another. You could potentially use this to get 29/30 events for the medal (I'd recommend doing that when you have all the other achievements). Transferring from an account that has 30/30 events might pop the achievement too, not sure though.
Yes, this is glitching. But Epic hasn't updated the special event (One shot, one kill) since mid-october, almost 3 months now, because it's barely played.
For the rank transfer glitch, Google/YouTube "Rank Transfer Glitch GoW Judgment".
|Comment #55 by De Vuilnisman|
Thursday, January 09, 2014 @ 09:41:59 PM
There is a new event. Team 6v6, first to 50 wins. You start with a breechshot (16 ammo) as both your primary and secondary. There are longshots and mortars scattered around the map. You don't need to win the event to get the ribbon!
It's only 1 event, but hey, a good start.
