This Week in Gears – May 25 – 31

Hello everyone! With Operation 7 well under way we’re back with another This Week in Gears.

Versus Event: Golden Gun with mutators!

Golden Gun is a team-based event where you are given one gun, your Golden Gun, you can only blind fire it, should you hit an enemy you’ll instantly kill them! Miss… and you’ll have to deal with an extremely long reload time so make your shots count!

This isn’t your ordinary Golden Gun event we’ve added some fun mutators for you to use!

  • Confetti Headshot – Score a headshot with your Golden Gun and you’ll be rewarded with a confetti effect on the person you just killed.
  • Gun Sounds – The Golden Gun will make “unique” noises as it fires
  • Golden Hour Filter – A golden gun means a special filter, and for this, we’re turning your game into a delicious golden color!

Horde Event: Horde Frenzy on 3 new maps!

Back for a final week, we’ll be providing a special playlist for you to play Horde Frenzy on three new maps added exclusively for this event – Atrium, Turbine, and Command.

Reminder: You will have this last week to finish the exclusive medal group, granting you access to the Relic Weapon Skin Set, medal details below.

  • Frenzy Carnage – Do 3,000,000 damage in the Horde Frenzy Event
  • Frenzy Horder – Collect 500,000 Energy in the Horde Frenzy Event
  • OP6 Tour De Horde – Win 1 Match on Atrium, Turbine and Command in the Horde Frenzy Event
