This Week in Gears – August 31 – September 6

Hello everyone! Welcome to another This Week in Gears blog where we bring you up to speed with everything in-game this week.

The One Shot One Kill badge

Grab your Longshot and get sniping because the classic One Shot One Kill is back! Thanks to your feedback on our recent community poll, we have added bullet penetration to the Longshot. Think you can pop more than one skull at once? We’d love to see those multi-headshots.
