Revealing what special perks gamers would receive if they achieved the time-consuming "Veteran Gear" achievement, Mr. Fergusson also let loose some additional information about weapon unlocks and unique events in the coming months. Additionally, he went on to confirm a special digital sale for the first two games." (Epic Games, Gears of War 3, Xbox 360)

Kick in the balls for those who thought Bulletstorm=Beta=Golden weapons only.

Got my 100 rank ages ago so quite pleased, although Ferrero Rocher weapons are only for show.

Not really, considering only 2% of the people that played Gears 2 actually achieved Veteran Status. In essence it makes those gold guns more "valuable" to those who cares.....

Good idea...


I think offering different ways of achieving some of these weapons is the way to go. Giving them to gamers for being loyal fans is always a win.

This game will be one for the ages...

And boy did the piss off a lot of Gear Heads.
On the Epic Forum there is a thread that is up to 330 pages since the announcement.


They basically just handed the casual gamer everything the vets have worked for over the years.
