Versus Event: Boom Snipes
We’ve gone deep into the way back machine for this week’s Versus Event. The classic Gears of War 3 BoomSnipes playlist is back! This insane 5v5 TDM variant has a loadout made for carnage: Longshot, Boomshot and a Snub (not that you’ll need it).
Featured Horde Event: Mad Man’s Monsters
The classic 20 wave Horde event, where COG Heroes go head to head with Swarm enemies wearing Juvie Pumpkin Heads, Frankenstein’s Imago, and Sires
Featured Hive: The Split
The Split is sticking around for a bit longer.
The Split forces you to make a choice. Do you head to the med-bay where you can give yourself an “extra life” or will you make your way to a fabri-station where you can get some lethal weapons.
Which will you choose?
