Gears of War

Gears of War Achievements


Complete 100 multiplayer matches of 3+ rounds in Annex and capture 3 objectives in each match  

Annex is basically a rendition of King of the Hill. A large circle spawns at random on the map, but always around a spot where you can pick up a map weapon (Torque Bow, Longshot, etc.) The first team to get there and stay there uncontested (without the enemy team entering) for a few seconds will 'cap' the circle.

When a circle is capped, everyone in the circle scores a cap, and the team is awarded one point for every second they remain in control. If the enemy enters the circle, they stop scoring, and if the enemy caps the circle, the enemy starts scoring. Each circle will give 60 total points out before it goes away and reappears elsewhere on the map. The first team to hit the score limit wins the round.

Play 100 matches of Annex with 3 or more rounds, and get 3 or more caps in every match to get this achievement.


  • None of the 250 expansion pack achievements have to be done in ranked. They can be done in player, ranked, or a mix of both.
  • These can also be done with a two-controller method on a private player match. Simply log in two controllers as Gamertag and Gamertag[2], put them on either team, and make sure your main account wins or does whatever the achievement requires him to do.
  • 3+ rounds means that the win limit must be 3 rounds or higher. For example, if a game that is set at 2 rounds is won 2-1, although 3 rounds were played, it will not count.

This can be done in a local match without being online (how I got mine). If you have an extra controller you can get this achievement.

You don't have to win the matches, just be there at the end of the game?
providing it's 3 rounds minimum, and have 3 caps minimum each game?

Okay so.

Does the amount of players in the game count also? If people quit and you still win, does that count towards it?

Also, on local.
I did 3 rounds,
120 points,
Raven down, no weapon swaps.
and scored 6 objectives each match. due it being 2 caps per game.

Is that right?!

I tried this last night, set game to 3 rounds and 180 points.

However , i actually played 9 rounds of 180 points. (i.e. 3 rounds of 180)

I'm assuming now that 180 points is actually 3 caps and not 3 rounds. Is this correct ?

Hope i have explained it correctly !

Hey Heath, long time no speak. I just got this achievement today.

Your method is a little off. I posted a more lenghty description for this
achievement in the achievement thread if you want to look at it. Basically
you only need to set it to 3 rounds of 120 round score. This way you end the
match with 6 caps in total, assumming your using a second controller.

Hope this helps. If not message me on XBL :)

Sunday, September 04, 2011 @ 01:59:25 AM

I think the easy's way to get THIS! IS! ANNEX! is to get a friend or get two
controllers and go local fix to one round and to 120 point i believe this is
the fastest way.

If im boosting for it in local does the local matches add together with the public ranked matches i have already played.. (ex: played 55 local and 45 ranked so does that = 100?)

Wednesday, May 02, 2012 @ 10:23:28 PM

I did this 113 times in local with 2 controllers, 3 rounds on 120 in Annex and hasn't popped up. Any suggestions?

Comment #43 by xTheGameHunterx
Monday, June 04, 2012 @ 11:33:18 AM

A good trick is that you can do the "Hidden Fronts" achievements while trying to get "THIS! IS! ANNEX!" and "Nub Pwn3r" achievements from the title update. Because in the map pack achievements you need to win 20 matches with 3+ rounds, and there are four achievements to get. So... 80 matches on Annex (with 3+ rounds)... The remaining 20 can be done while getting "Inconceivable!" achievement (still with 3+ rounds),--
*!remember, you need to capture 3 objectives per match, (1 per round since it's 3+ rounds) but the lowest score is 120 points, so you're gonna capture 2 objectives to end the round!*
--and then you've won 100 matches with 3+ rounds and captured 3 objectives per match!
Heres a gui

Comment #44 by xTheGameHunterx
Monday, June 04, 2012 @ 11:34:54 AM

Heres a guide: *be sure to have two controllers*
Gametype: Annex
Selected map: Procces (example)
Number of rounds: 3
Bleed-out duration: 5 (example)
Round score: 120
Friendly fire: No (example)
Private slots: 8 (can't be changed)
Weapons swapped: No (must stay)

Good luck COG's !!!

Wednesday, February 06, 2013 @ 10:39:27 AM

Does it have to be exactly 3 captures or can it be more.
My setup is:
My main account and a dummy account
Raven Down
120 points
3 rounds

I capture 2 objectives per round. Playing 3 rounds and winning a match leaves me with 6 captures per match. Is this method OK to carry on with or needs to be changed ?

yea devastator is right thats the fastest way cause you cap it then go to the other truck and and wait simple as that. Why is asking if its per round or per game? you have to get 3 caps in a game. play 100 of them and wala. Im still doing this myself as I kinda want this as one of my last achievements.

Local matches with a second controller DOES work.
The achievement finally poped for me after 106 matches.
If it doesn't pop right at 100 matches, just keep going until it does because it eventually WILL.
Easiest map by far is Raven Down since the rings only show up in 2 locations.

Comment #63 by Tanelorn
Wednesday, October 15, 2014 @ 03:33:22 PM

Stop it, you don't need gold for the second account. You do it local... not ranked, not player match.

Finally got this POS achievement after like 4-5 years of doing it once in a while.
