Gears of War 2 Bonus XP Event

By mancide, 5 years ago
Not to be outdone by Red Dead Redemption, @GearsViking tweets that starting Friday Gears of War 2 multiplayer modes will give out XP multiplied by a factor of 21!

This is a great time to make some progress towards earning your wings:

When not enjoying video games, our fearless newshound enjoys an nice pint of fermented barley and hops in a variety of styles. India Pale Ales, Stouts, Porters, Witbiers, Saisons, Gose, Lambics, Barleywine, you name it. If it has water, malted barley, hops and yeast in it, I'll consume it. I also enjoy all things technological, Doctor Who, wrasslin, traveling, and spending time with my family.

If you don't have Vet Gear by now...you'll probably never get it.
Kind of lame that the last event was 30x and this one is only 21x.

Not sure what 21x has to do with July 4th either. Should have just made it 44. xD

Loonielee said:xXCombat Wombat said:Honestly who DOESN'T have their wings by now with all these xp events??You just beat me to it.I have had Gears 2 since launch, used to play it almost every night, certainly every weekend for the first 2 years or so. I've must've played 10,000 waves of horde and God knows how many Annex and King of the Hill matches.

I have also played during every XP event, sometimes putting in 8 hours a day.

I am still only around level 67. What kills me is that by the time I get to level 81, I am only half way there, so insanely exponential is the ranking system.

It blows my mind that people have got to level 100. Beyond people glitching it, I don't understand how it's possible. You people must spend every minute of every XP event boosting some game mode in some special way that I don't know or care about. I'm not interested enough in this achievement to take this to that level where it is no longer fun.

i have had gears 2 since launch as well and i am not level 100 yet. it is a hard grind bc most modes you get one life. i think gears 3 will be better with team deathmatch. In gears 3 beta i got to level 26 in that 4 weeks of playing.

I still dont have this. I was so upset when my rank got reset from 85 over a year ago when some GH3 DLC corrupted my account and i had to recover it :( Even now im only back up to about 67. And not too many people I know have this achievement so I hope they keep these xp weeks/weekends coming more often leading up to GOW 3

Not the funnest 6 hours of my life, I must admit.
