PSA: Another Gears of War 2 30x XP Event Starts Tomorrow
Written By
View author's profile

If you're still crawling ever closer to that elusive level 100 and those pesky wings in Gears of War 2 multiplayer, then Epic Games has got you covered, as there's yet another 30x XP event getting ready to grind into action from tomorrow as E3 2011 gets underway here in Los Angeles.

It's to celebrate Epic successfully bribing their way towards bagging IGN's most anticipated E3 game gong. Here's the proof: "Hey , don't forget to turn on the 30X xp event and Horde madness while I'm gone!" tweeted Epic's Rod Fergusson a couple of days ago, probably while we were 30,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean.

While we expect you'll be far too busy reading our amazing E3 news coverage, you can get your Gears 2 multiplayer action on from tomorrow and bag 30x XP before Gears of War 3 launches on September 20th, 2011.

[Thanks, Jalen]

Excellent! So many multiplayer achievements I still need for this game. These XP boosting events are genius.

Yeah. I read about this a while ago. Sadly, I already have all 1750... Maybe I'll mess around on my other account. 30x XP makes 100 a cake walk.

I borrowed Gears of War 2 from a friend about two years ago, played halfway through the second level and never touched it again. I've thought about buying the $30 combo pack they have in stores now, but I've never been convinced to get back into Gears of War franchise. Are these 30x EXP events worthwhile for achievement gathering?

@5 They usually start at Noon-ish in america, about 4 in the afternoon in the UK.

I wish they'd do a seriously 2.0 boosting event. It's the last achievement I have, 80,000 off.... :(

@13 with 30xp you can probebly get all the dlc achievements in 2 days of boosting, mostly because the win on the snowblind maps may take a while not the hitting 100 itself
be warned though if you get the lvl 50 and 100 achievements on the same day it will think you glitched them

Hope they get some (even more) ridiculous xp multipliers the weak before Gears 3 releases... Yes I'm selfish, but I do feel kind of "sorry" for the people grinding for this cheevo with no multipliers.

@23 I believe it was Rod who said that he doesn't care, so long as you have the achievement. Also I don't think that they could worry too much about this considering if you were lvl 49, with 30x xp lvls 49-100 is doable in 1 day if you play all day, even without boosting. Anyways, get ready for all the people to come in and complain that they got their wings without any xp multipliers. Good for them and all, but thats their own problem. Glad i put Gears off for a little while. Made rank 100 a cakewalk :)

Hey, feel bad for me. I only picked up Gears 1 & 2 for the first time about a month ago. I haven't even touched the multiplayer on Gears 2 yet. So I'll be starting from level 1 tomorrow. Even with 30x XP that is probably gonna take a while.

Any suggestions?

Gears of War 2 scanned Gears 1 achievements for unlockables, so it is probably a safe bet that if you have the achievement, you're fine.

lvl 100 = 6.600.000 exp points (about)
3.300.000 = about lvl 80

I'm at lvl 85 and I still need about 2 millions of exp points to reach the lvl 100

I don't give a fuck about a 30x multiplier, it's completely useless; I still don't know if a 100x multiplayer can be enough. Epic just let this stupid race end, please.

^Yeah no problem :) The problem is being resolved right now; they forgot to turn it on I believe :p

Well, I just played a game and only got about 900 EXP so I don't think they've turned it on yet. I'm bad, but not that bad.

^As long as you're connected to XBL, you will receive the multiplier. However, the event hasn't started yet.

Actually, the event just started :D . All you have to do is restart your Xbox and it give you the 30x multiplier.

4,5k in normal, horde, level 1 (just tested)

So it should be 5k and 5,5k in the highest difficulty.

im sure i was getting

200xp for casual
300xp for normal
400xp for hardcore
500xp for insane

on horde so 30x should be

6000xp for casual
9000xp for normal
12000xp for hardcore
15000xp for insane

so why do i get 3000 for casual, am i being stupid?

I've seen some videos of people horde boosting on Security. They'd complete the first wave and then suicide dive into the lasers to start over at wave 1. I suppose it's worth a shot.

@101 because normaly it is 2x exp therefore a casual wave is worth 100 exp but since the regular is 2x exp you get 200 exp hence 30x exp x 100 =3000 exp

I find this easiest on-
Map: Flood
Difficulty: Insane
Wave: 1
Get on the rotation of the torque bow/frag spawn (kill yourself if necessary). Run and grab frags, then grab torque and hold up on the bridge. Only 4(or 5) enemies spawn- typically 2 boomers a wretch and a drone.
With 9 arrows, melee the wretch(es), take the boomers, then plant a frag at the base of the bridge for the drone to rush into. Rinse (kill self) and repeat. This takes about 1.5 minutes each time x 7,500xp each. I went from 80-93 in two days.

man, i was even more angry, i'm nearly level 98 and it ended. will there ever be another one? just one more. i recon if they ever do another one, it'll be the last one. if so, it'll probably be a week before launch day, or the day before launch day. probably a week if anything, a day is too much short notice.

i was also thinking, why don't epic make another game type like torque bow tag. i was thinking, make it so that you can only kill or harm people with bayonets, including executions. that'd be awesome, everyone just charging with the retro or tearing people to pieces with the lancers chainsaw bayonet. that'd be sweeeeet.

Tips for getting lvl 100 on a custom xp base ie (x2 - x6 - x20 - x30 XP) Play Round 1 horde on INSANE around 10,000xp per round took me around a day and half around 1-2 mins for 10,000XP of killing retch. NOTE - More players more LOCUST so just go into party with friends to speak and play in seperate lobbies.....Hop this Helps.
