So glad I logged in on that day just for the Flaming Lancer, means once they do finally get these two Valentines Day Flaming Skins out I'll have the achievement.

Still, to be on the safe side will keep listening out for further events, just in case in June or later they add a "Complete the Flaming Weapon skin set" or "Complete the Midnight Omen weapon skin set". Wouldn't put anything past them. After not bothering with the Flaming Skins (except the login Lancer) until they added the achievement, don't want to get caught out like that again.

Me three, also glad to finally have this one.

I wonder what achievements they'll inflict on us in June.
Still better be safe than sorry and do the events, wonder if they'll redo all the Flaming Weapon skins from before December.

Gears 11th Anniversary was back in early October and if you were fortunate enough to play that day you were awarded the Flaming Lancer.

Try equipping them on every character (Cog, Swarm, Horde etc) then if your tracker still hasn't moved, reboot the game.

That usually works for me with the skin achievements but doesn't work for everyone unfortunately.

Unfortunately he scrapped lancer, boom, and. drop before these last 2 were released....... not sure if that is the reason he's not getting progress passed 60%.

^ Ah sounds like it will be. I have a friend in the same situation. He's at 40% and should be at 80% but scrapped skins.

I said this to him as well but I'm not sure why anyone would scrap skins, especially the ones with achievements tied to them.

I still have the lancer, and as for the scrapping I believed I was safe because I scrapped Midnight Omen skins and still unlocked the achievement normally.
I'm okay with waiting though there is another event right around the corner.
Lesson learned laugh

There was an update for the game this evening but no event & nothing in the message of the day to say there will be.

Taken from gearsofwar.com:- https://gearsofwar.com/en-us/community/whatsup-apr26-2018

'We're excited to confirm that our first 2v2 event with arrive next week with two brand new challenges for the remaining 3 Flaming Weapon Skins and a bonus opportunity to pick up the Flaming Lancer. The challenges for this event will use the same system we used for Griffin - as soon as you complete your challenge, you'll be able to add your Reward skins directly to your inventory through GearsofWar.com. We'll have all the info on our first 2v2 event in next week's What's Up.'

Sounds to me like we'll get more info on Thursday with this weeks 'What's up Gears' with the challenges starting on Friday.
