The Coalition started Horde special events similar to the Versus special events in December 2017.


WARNING!!!: DO NOT SCRAP THE SKIN REWARDS UNTIL YOU UNLOCK YOUR ACHIEVEMENT. YOU NEED 5 AT ONE TIME.

5/10/18 EDIT: The Horde events still reward weapon skins at the completion of a match. They are not following suit of the Versus event challenges. They are random drops and you may encounter duplicates.

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 an make edits to the solution and post comment updates in addition to the leaderboard PMs.
