More Gears of War 3 Details

Rod Fergusson revealed that people who have been playing the Gears franchise and have unlocked certain challenges or achievements are in for a few surprises.

He announced that the people who completed the Veteran Gear achievement in Gears of War 2, will be rewarded with 5 golden weapons: lancer, retro-lancer, gnasher,  sawed-off, and hammerburst. Now you might be thinking that everyone is just going to be walking around with golden weapons, but rest assured that is not the case by a longshot. Fergusson revealed that only 2% of the community has unlocked that achievement.

He also told us that if you unlocked the Commando achievement in Gears of War, you will receive the golden sawed-off. If you were in the beta and completed some challenges, then you will also be rewarded with other golden guns.

Lastly, Fergusson confirmed rumors that Gears of War 2 starting August 20th will have special events every week until the launch of Gears of War 3. During these events you will be able to earn special surprises and improve your experience playing the game.
