Gears of War 2
Gears of War 2 Labor Day XP Event Offers 25x XP
Written By
View author's profile

Epic's Rod Fergusson (aka GearsViking) has been tweeting about the upcoming Labor Day Gears of War 2 XP event again via his Twitter page, and it looks like the final figure has arrived at 25x XP, meaning that 25,000 people now 'like' Gears of War on Facebook.

Fergusson tweeted the following earlier this week: "Labor Day Event update - congrats everyone for taking it to 25x XP! Bring on the Veteran Gears!"

Labor Day falls on Monday 6th September apparently, so that would make Labor Day weekend the 4th and 5th, but the event is slated to run from September 3rd until September 7th, giving you plenty of time to grind your way towards that hallowed Veteran Gear status.

So, get those Lancers revved up and get cracking from September 3rd.

I love how that fag said we're NOT putting a cap on it, and there you go. THERE'S A CAP! Fucking douchebag. Giving a time limit is THE SAME as a cap off. He has OVER 29k fans.

@#4 - Actually, it's at 29k now, but he set a finishing date (which isn't a cap at all) and when that date came by, it was at 25k... So... Calm. The. Hell. Down.

If the Gears 3 Multiplayer is average like gears 2 then i just won't bother playing it for achievements, much easier to wait a year and get them handed to me.

Love how Epic are essentially destroying the Gears 2 multiplayer before Gears 3 comes out. Doing absurd events like this pretty much acknowledges that the game is stupidly impossible to level up to 100 normally, and that nobody cares about it outside of xp multipliers.

If you assume that you get 40,000 pts per match, which is fairly reasonable for KOTH boosting, it will only take 25 games to go from 1 to 100. And i thought the 6x multiplier was fast.

@33 KOTH boosting can award up to 740000 XP (based on the 20x event). You'll only need around 10 games to get from 1 to 100.

@33 you can get alot more than 44k per game if you are boosting.
My friend said during the 20x xp event in july he was clearing 500k per game.

With the other team boosting too that is.

Remembered why I don't play this online the other night....

Bought the all Fronts pack and fired up some MP.

Took 1 round of Execution before some little scrote on my own team took the time to message me 'Are you retarded?'.

Well, he's technically correct, but it's pretty rude of him to ask.....

Excellent. I wasn´t relly in the mood for playing Gears on the 20x XP event so I only from level 50 to 57. I hope they leave horde mode as it is and not make it like the 20x XP event.

Anyone who's complaining that the XP multiplier should be higher than 25x must not realize how much ridiculous experience you will get, boosting or not.

Just playing the game normally for a good part of the even should be enough to get you your wings.

@30 refer to Webbs comment dillhole.

On a sidenote, I read somewhere that having your wings will have an effect in Gears 3, so perhaps it's simply character unlocks or something to that effect in MP, but we'll see.

I sold my Gears 2 after I logged in and found my multiplayer level had been reset to 1. They really need to fix the programming so this doesn't happen. I've never played on any other system than my own, so I'm not sure how this even happened. Seems like they could record your multiplayer xp and level on their server and keep yours updated when you play.

Anyway, I'm not playing their xp giveaway since they can't find the time to fix a problem that's been there since the game released.

I'm not complaining about this cause I don't have this achievement yet... but it's called an achievement not a handout for a reason. It seems like epic is just handing this achievement out now. I can understand having exp events every now and then like a few times a year but these have been back to back to back, I personally have only been able to take part in the E3 exp event so I feel kinda jipped when I find people who have had the game a couple months and have there wings while I have been a loyal fan from the beginning and I am a level 68. Kudos to EPIC for supporting there community though.

Sorry for the rant.

It's bull if you ask me, I got my level 100 before TU6 so my Achievement ment something i did not have the aid of stupid XP modifiers. It's surpose to be for been a Vetran Gear not quick see how much XP you can rack up in one day.

Your ment to earn this Achievement by playing hours and hours, i have played Gear 1 regularly until Gears 2 and im stil playing it now. I in my opinion am a Vetran Gear. Plenty of people out there just boost for the Achievement using these XP events.

XP event are good but 25 XP a few weeks after a 20 XP is just begging people to play Gears. Ok im finished.

I got level 100 during the 20x, but good luck to you guys who are going for it during this event. Lol guardian boosting works awesome. I started at level 47, and got to 100 in just a few matches. I am curious how many ppl will be doing it this time though. During the 20x, at the beginning it was all boosters in public guardian, but by the end I could barely find a match to boost in, so maybe its that most people who care about getting to lvl 100 already have their wings.

@4: It's not a cap, it's a time limit. If there had been more people in before that limit, we could have had more XP. But hey, if you think he's such a d-bag, feel free to wait until 25x XP is over and play during 1x XP.

I personally like having more higher-ranked opponents from these EXP events. That way, people focus more on the actual skill of the players as opposed to the number next to their name.

@70: Oh, give it a rest. Not everybody has the time to invest hundreds, if not thousands of hours into this game to reach Level 100. Rank is meaningless in determining skill, considering you have no way of knowing without asking if somebody boosted or not to earn their wings. This reminds me of all the people who complain when ultimate editions with DLC pieces bundled in are released after they bought all of the DLC. Hey, as you should learn in basic economics, any cost that you had that you can't get back, such as the money for the DLC, is a sunk cost and should not be considered in making a decision.

#68 and #71 spot on, it took me 8 to 10 months of hardcore playing and the biggest xp event i was in was 3x XP! don't get me wrong i'm all for xp events but epic are giving this achievement away. i was very proud of this achievement at first but not so much anymore.:(

i agree with #79 i mad it from lvl 1-48 with no double xp at all. then from 48-100 with only double and 3x. its pretty unfair that a hardcore gears player such as myself had to work for a whole year to get that achievement and players who just got the game are pretty much given the achievement. way to go epic.

Only 90 levels to go!

Tbh, I never really liked Gow multiplayer. The campaign was pretty good, though. I'll probably get the rest of the lvl achievements I can (I don't have the map packs so I can't get the lvl 100 one anyway) and then I'll stop.

I agree with what some people are saying about handing out the lvl 100 achievement but to be fair is a grind based achievement not a skill based achievement. I for one would never have even tried for lvl 50 let alone lvl without these stupid multiplier events and gears 2 is probably my favourite online game.
Imagine how i felt when I spent days trying to get ANNEX: Now with exicution rules, just because i never got the map i needed and annex, then they went and made a playlist specifically for it.

The only point of this is to add points to people's GTs, nothing to actually strive for, like unlockables. I doubt I can be arsed this time round, even with x25 it takes ages to get to level 100.

to everyone griping about getting a handout of an achievement, shut it. i've hit at least level 50 twice and had my levels reset. this is my third time going for my wings, and i appreciate the multipliers. it's like giving me back the time i lost playing legit or the numerous hours of legit horde with my friends.

all other retards, this event was not capped, it had a deadline. we voted to a specific time and then the votes did not count. we didn't get to 63000 people and he says "oh too much, got to lower it." technically, it's their project and game, and you should be thankful they support it. they could say fuck it we have their money, let's make the next game that they WILL buy even though you morons say you won't, but you will. you will, just because you'll be scared your the only one not playing the new "big" game.

@79 You can still be proud of it, it's not like YOU boosted it. God when other people boost there's always someone who's mad cause they didn't.

@80 It's not unfair at all. You played the game, which you obviously liked if you played it for so long, for enough time to get the wings. I don't like this game enough to play it nonstop, but I still enjoy playing it. Why should I be bothered to play it for 10 months to get one achievement. It's actually FAIR that they're making the achievement attainable to people who have to attend to their lives.

@81 Lol agreed

And finally, on topic, can't wait to go from 92 to 100 this event :]

A cap would be if 50,000 people joined on day one but he said "Alright the multiplier is going to be 30x"

#87 i don't believe i said anything about people boosting, i couldn't care less if people boost, an achievement is supposed to be exactly that AN ACHIEVEMENT giving it away in 2 to 3 hours is a little much. thats the point of lvl 100 it's supposed to take time.

I feel bad for all the people who got their wings without these handouts. It takes so long to level up just once when you reach 60 or so! Kudos to anyone who didn't have the help of experience multipliers. However, I will be getting my wings labor day weekend

@12 what are you on about , i never came across atleast 10 kids this year. ive been playing gears of war 2 and the players are ages above 17 due to their sound of voice. gears of war 2 is an amazing game. im lvl 97 without any xp events . i got reset twice. im going to reset again on purpose after lvl 100. the multiplayers is amazing , now downside apart from your gun dissapearing or lag.

im rank 50 wingman this week. weekly leaderboard

@12. I miss the first week of Gears 2 release since ppl actually used the lancer,hammerburst,handguns and the other weapons. After that week was over everyone started using the god forsaken shotgun.

To be honest i think the online is a masterpiece (prefered no 1) It isnt the traditional call of duty (no skill required) I think the reason alot of people hate it is because they dont spend enough trying to master the game. That said two piecing is just downright annoying. 25xp nice.

perhaps I can jump to level 80~90 this time. Scored around 1 million points during the last X20 to level 71, horde only (only thing I'm decent at). >4 million to go *sight*

where was this sort of shit when i was leveling up? all i got was fuckinn 2x xp, and that didn't help much since i was already in my 80s, and leveling up in the 80s and 90s takes A FUCKIN LONG TIME. (btw: this was around march 2010)

Everyone needs to stop complaining. Did you really think you could get your wings by grinding day after day for it? Wow, get some sun. The total XP needed from the top of my head is like what, 6-8 MILLION? I get 2K average from Guardian and Wingman matches. This is after Gearsmas too, with the perm 2x. Do the math. We are moving on to GoW3 and killing all of our ties to GoW2 to spend time on something a little more enjoyable won't kill you, won't it? After all, you've already spent like, over 400 real days on the shit that is Gears 2, right? I hope to God they make multi like GoW1. I can never find myself to play this game anymore unless events are on or friends invite me. There are other games to invest time in. Find one.
TL;DR= Find a game that isn't a chore for you.

Nice. Stopped playing initially after getting to 50 on the basis that it would take forever to reach 100 and I had other games to play. This and the last x20 event should enable me to reach 100, then it's only the Seriously 2.0 grind for the full 1750. Thanks Epic!

im rank 80 atm but if i get at least 1000 points a much ill level up to 100 after 140 something matches of execution
