    As of November 9th 2020, all event skins are craftable using scrap!

    If the achievement doesn't unlock, quit the game and boot it back up. Several users have experienced this.

    I'll leave all the old information up just for the sake of people knowing how it was obtained originally.


    FINAL UPDATE!: There will be no more events. The skins will be craftable in January 2020.

    As of February 15th the update to make them craftable is still pending from The Coalition. The below quote is from TC Octus on Reddit.

    We've postponed the Gears 4 sunsetting stuff until Summer so the team can keep focusing on improving 5 above all else. We're locking down plans now to communicate well ahead of time what we plan to do, but it won't be for quite a while.






    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Coalition started Versus events for Flaming Weapon skins back in August of 2017.

    WARNING!!!: DO NOT SCRAP THE SKIN REWARDS UNTIL YOU UNLOCK YOUR ACHIEVEMENT. YOU NEED 5 AT ONE TIME.
    Above information credit to AceMcCloud. Thanks for confirming!

    5/3/18 EDIT: The event reward distribution has been updated. They are now tied to Xbox Challenges with zero Gamerscore. There is tracking progress with the challenges, so no need to manually track yourself anymore. Once you have unlocked the appropriate challenge, go to the MOTD (Message of the Day) on the Gears 4 menu, and click 'Claim Reward'. It will redirect you to the Gears official website where you will log in with your Xbox account. Click 'Claim Reward' on the website page and you should receive your reward instantly. Coalition has stated to allow up to 48 hours for the reward to appear.

    Alternatively, after you've unlocked the challenges, you can go to the new 'My Reward' page on the Gears website, login, and claim the reward.

    https://gearsofwar.com/en-us/my-rewards

    During these timed events you need to register through the main menu on Gears 4 that will redirect you to GearsofWar.com. You'll then hit register on-site. Each event will have criteria that must be met to be eligible for the Flaming skins. You'll need to manually track progress during these events as there is no in-game tracker.

    I will post any upcoming events as they are announced and edit this solution and make a comment to it as well.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    12/10/17 EDIT: I created a leaderboard for both of the weapon skin achievements in Gears 4. I will send a mass PM to all users that have joined the leaderboard each time a new event is announced. I will also stick to my word and make edits to the solution and post comment updates in addition to the leaderboard PMs.


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    12/21/17 EDIT: Distribution of past several event's weapons skins added in. Also updated formatting of solution. Let me know if this looks more appealing and cleaner for you guys.

    Tandar1Hate to ask, but I'm not familiar enough with Gears 4 to understand where to go or how much scrap is required to craft these.
    Can you update a little bit to include that info?

    Dutch x Monster3000 for flaming 500 for midnight omen

    Hitman DarknessWell just crafted 5 Different weapons in the flaming skins and did not unlock the achievement am I missing something
    Posted by Hitman Darkness on 10 Nov 20 at 15:02
    trevzuk0If the achievements don't unlock, try restarting the game and it should correct itself.
    Posted by trevzuk0 on 10 Nov 20 at 16:10
    FiveWizzThere are so many comments about restarting the game to get the achievement to pop I wish people would just read the last few comments it's a mere inch away from the query.

    BabyishDuckHello, I can't find the Midnight Omen and Flaming skins to craft them. Where do you find them? Thank you.
    Posted by BabyishDuck on 11 Nov 20 at 05:02
    Slayer ReigningMidnight Omen is in swarm tab, Flaming in Cog tab but should be either.
    Posted by Slayer Reigning on 13 Nov 20 at 03:57
    The CherishedSo you can use real money to buy packs, right? How many packs/what packs should I be looking into if I really want to shortcut these achievements? I did this one on different tag years ago and want to save every second I can.

    Nit0rinIt works! Had to reboot the game and got it!

    G Mason PatriotAfter crafting my last two, quitting out of the game and rebooting worked! Thank you!
