First off, I want to apologize for being late on my weekly article, I have been playing ridiculous amounts of Gears 3 this last week. Anyway last week I did a basic guide to improving your Gears of War 3 play, if you haven’t read it yet you should probably read that first. Linked here. Now that you have the basics down its time to get into the more advanced tactics that will let you demolish public games and get you ready for competitive play. While I was doing my research for this weeks Step Up Your Game, I came across some really insightful videos from a competitive Gears player named arCtiCvBi on youtube. In the future I would like to make my own videos, but I currently lack a capture card. So instead of writing what you need to focus on, I will be able to show you. For now though, these videos do a great job of focusing on what I would personally focus on.
