If you're the proud owner of a Gears of War Lancer or Hammerburst for your Xbox Live Avatar, congratulations. You're one of the few who'll be able to keep hold of them, as in the new year, Microsoft is removing all gun-based Avatar items from the Marketplace. Buy a gun for your Avatar between now and January 1st, 2012 though, and you'll still entitled to keep them.
"Heads up! Starting on Jan. 1, 2012, the Lancer and Hammerburst avatar items will no longer be available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace," stated Epic Games Community Manager, Will Kinsler. "If you’ve purchased the items prior to Jan. 1, you will be able to keep them. A new policy goes into effect for all gun-like avatar items on the Marketplace, so get them while they’re hot."
You'd better get hold of a gun for your Avatar now if you want one then. Quick! Go get some! Pew pew! etc.
