This week in Gears – February 16-22

Hello everyone!

With a new week comes another This Week in Gears! We know last week was a little rough – a reminder that we have a post about the Re-ups here.

Versus Event: Arms Race

Take down your opponent with every gun. Completing three kills changes your team’s weapon. Get three kills with the final weapon to finish the match and defeat your enemies. Hope you know how to handle the big guns. Arms Race will be running until the end of Operation 5 as we prepare to move into Operation 6!

Horde Event

There will be no Horde Event this week and as we move towards Operation 6! In the meantime, please share your Boss Rush moments with us on your social platform of choice!

Escape Event: The Warren

This week’s hive is The Warren. With many electrified juvies to deal with, this one won’t be easy.

Gears Glory

As previously mentioned last week Gears Glory continues with the focus on Black History Month.

Today, we are featuring lx_kaos_gaming’s staying under pressure in his tribute to Gears of War.
