Gears of War

Gears of War Achievements

For the Fallen

Recover all of the COG tags (on any difficulty)   

COG tags are the future's equivalent of dogtags. They are hidden throughout the game and can be picked up in various chapters of every act. You will notice them by their illuminated blue glow. If you have picked up a COG tag in a certain area, and are playing through the game again, you will not be able to pick that COG tag up again. The number of COGs you have picked up can be seen in the pause menu.


  • For a list of all COG tags, click here.
  • If you are playing in Co-op, you will be able to see a COG tag you have already picked up provided your partner has not done so. However, you will not be able to pick it up.
  • The cog tags can be picked up in Co-op. However, only one player can pick up any given tag.

Visit youtube, then type in Gears of War COG Tags. It'll help a lot. :)

in co-op, when a player picks it up, does it register for the other player as well?

Looking to do walkthroughs and achievement guides for the first three Gears of War games.

Hit me up and I'll see what I can do for you (first come first serve).

I need help with some achievements, and I'll help with all campaign achievements (except I Can't Quit You Dom). (UK time).

I finally used the guide from this site. Can't believe the one I missed was #3 on the first level... I must have passed it 15 times while going for the Clusterluck Achievement. Good grief.
