    Stay Frosty
    Stay Frosty is back! Last seen in Gears of War 3, Stay Frosty is the TDM ‘SWAT’ variant of the Gearsiverse that’s now making its debut in Gears 4.
    For those of you who don’t know, Stay Frosty in Gears 3 armed you with a higher-damage Hammerburst, pocket-sniper worthy Snub pistol and a grenade. With no DBNOs, the game mode was all about ranged combat, effective use of cover and smart movement.
    So what does the Gears 4 version look like? Well, that’s actually going to be up to you.
    We want to build Stay Frosty alongside the community, gathering your feedback on specific aspects of the mode to help make it the best it can be. We’ll try some ideas. They might work. They might not. But together, we want to make the best Stay Frosty (even if that ends up being the original!).
    Here’s what we’re planning for version one:
    Stay Frosty V1
    Mode: Team Deathmatch
    Rounds: 1
    Respawns: 35
    Loadout: Hammerburst, Golden Gun, 1 Grenade
    Hammerburst Tuning
    1.5 bursts to the head will down
    3 bursts to the body will down
    Active Reload: Rate of fire increase, no damage buff, increased cooldown time
    Golden Gun Tuning
    No aiming (hipfire only)
    Starting ammo: 4
    Grenade Tuning
    Reduced damage radius
    Weapon Spawns: Hammerbursts only
    DBNO: On
    The biggest change here is obviously the substitution of the pocket-sniper Snub pistol for Golden Gun, our instant-kill hip fire only pistol. Hammerbursts will still be the name of the game, but the Golden Gun provides the opportunity for high risk high reward kills that helps break some of the deadlock that could sometimes occur in Stay Frosty in a different manner.
    Due to an unforeseen bug, we unfortunately have had to keep DBNOs enabled for current iterations of Stay Frosty. We’re looking at rectifying this in a future update in order to bring back the classic instant-kill experience for the Hammerburst.
    Does it work? You’ll be the judge. You can tweet us your feedback on the Golden Gun weapon substitution beginning tomorrow by tweeting @CoalitionGears or posting in the Stay Frosty thread under the Gears 4 category in the forums. Iterations may be as quick as within this first event, or in future appearances of Stay Frosty.
