When it comes to the weapons, Gears of War has the most insane mixture of every kind in its arsenal. All the major default weapons have either been improved or have been balanced for a more over-the-shoulder action packed fiasco. The Hammerburst has gotten a neat upgrade in the form of iron-sights, which greatly improves on the firing power and accuracy when firing. The chainsaw bayonet takes a bit longer to be fired up now, with the character animation actually having to pull a switch to rev it up but still delivers that satisfactory kill. A fan favorite, the Gnasher Shotgun, has once again become the deadly force it once was and in the right hands, coupled with speed and a bit of skill, you can really rack up kills quickly.
