Gears of War 3 Weekend Details

By Michelle Balsan, 5 years ago
Another weekend, another Gears of War 3 event to tell you about!

This weekend brings us the "Blades and Nades" playlist. What this means is that your basic loadout will feature the Retro Lancer (ah, see, there's the 'blades' part) and the Gorgon Pistol. In addition, all grenade spawns will be replaced with Frag Grenades (and this is where 'nades' comes in) for an extra-explosive experience. In what is likely a nod to the countdown feature added to the game mode with the recent title update, Blades and Nades weekend will take place in King of the Hill matches.

As always, this event will count toward your progress on the Socialite achievement.

She can be compelled to play just about anything if there's a co-op component, and has been playing games with friends and siblings since the Atari 2600. As it's reportedly healthy to have hobbies outside of gaming, she also roots for some of the most difficult sporting franchises to root for, the New York Mets and New York Jets, but offsets that by rooting for the New Jersey Devils. She's also seen pretty much none of the movies you have, but she's working on that.
