This Week in Gears: November 24 – 30
This Week in Gears will fill you in on everything happening in-game for Gears 5!
VERSUS EVENT: Thanksgibbing
It’s time again for Thanksgibbing, Cluckshots and all!
For those who haven’t experienced a Gears Thanksgiving before, Thanksgibbing is a game-mode variant playlist featuring 5v5 TDM, Dodgeball and Guardian, where everyone starts with a Cluckshot – a version of the Boomshot that fires exploding chickens (unfortunately, turkeys don’t quite fit).
This version kicks things up a notch by making your flying chicken projectiles lay explosive eggs along their flight path whenever you hit an active. That’s right – when you hit an active, the exploding chicken you fire from your Cluckshot will carpet bomb little exploding eggs on its way to its destination…yes, you read that correctly.
Make sure to visit the store, as we’re giving away the Cluckshot skin, along with the Turkey and Gobble Gobble marks for FREE.
Go out there and get clucking!
