It’s gonna be May!

You had the hint last TWIG – we want to see your PvE or PvP headshots! Across the map with a Longshot? A from-the-hip with a Torque Bow? Cut that clip and send them to us on Instagram or Twitter under #GearsGlory. We’ll feature our favorites throughout the month, with the team’s top choices at the end of the month!

Please keep them short – we want to see the shot, not the whole match 😉

Have a great week everyone!
