Gears of War 3 Weekend Event Detailed

By Jonathan Barnes, 7 years ago
In the course of human events, many COGs will die, many Locusts will have their heads explode, and Carmine just might survive... maybe, but we know for a fact that weekends are becoming special events for fans of and those events weigh in towards gaining the ever-elusive Socialite achievement.

Like clockwork, the team at Epic has unveiled this weekend's special event and theme. We hope you like exploding cabezas, because it's going to be a BoomSnipe weekend!

For those who might have a problem splitting up the word "BoomSnipe", processing that information, and assembling it into a theme, it basically breaks down to the team changing the weapon spawns in Team Deathmatch to be a mix of Boomshots and Longshots.

Like all Gears Weekends, this playlist is scheduled to launch on Friday at 9:00 AM EST, but will run an extra day until Tuesday, November 1st at 9:00AM EST in celebration of Halloween.

Speaking of Halloween, the team at Epic also hinted that they have a special "cosmetic surprise" in store for Halloween on Monday. I bet they dress everyone up like The Wiggles, but have no info to back that up.

Gears of War 3's BoomSnipe Weekend goes live tomorrow morning at 9:00 AM EST.
