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.

I just hope it doesn't go the way of Judgement and fall apart before it can be completed.

Posted by Slayer Reigning on 10 Dec 17 at 14:55

The SCHWARTZ 00Registering is not too hard. You just log in with your gamertag, hit a button, boom you're in. Of course then you have to complete the requirements, which are pretty lax. You might have to put up with some super tryhards once in awhile but its not that bad. I already have the Lancer, Marzka, and Longshot. I THINK I completed the requirements for the Torque but I'm not sure.
Posted by The SCHWARTZ 00 on 11 Dec 17 at 08:13
FiveWizzI just realised that I've been sweating and grinding to get these last few weapons and maps for the achievements but I might as well chill and wait for these two skin achievements to start up as we'll be doing many rounds/maps then anyway. Pointless grinding maps if we'll hit them possibly during these anyway.

Just my take on it.
Posted by FiveWizz on 11 Dec 17 at 10:26
Solario32Coalition better not screw this up as past events in 3 and Judgement did not work out well long term.
Posted by Solario32 on 11 Dec 17 at 14:51
xCEL7IC ZOMBIExYou would think the debacle that was judgment,that Gears wud learn not to tie achievements to events when they lose interest in it after a while warning
Posted by xCEL7IC ZOMBIEx on 11 Dec 17 at 16:42
Slayer ReigningCoalition has done well in terms of support and events. Also they are a new team for Gears. Epic and PCF ran the stuff for Gears Judgment.
Posted by Slayer Reigning on 11 Dec 17 at 16:58
Stoic SlabEven if the requirements to get the skins are reasonable, the conditions just feel unfair.

I previously got 100% around the time the first flaming skins came out and I never really cared that much for weapon (or character) skins that much to make an effort. But while I'm confident that I will pick up the few needed skins for these two achievements in time, I'm concerned for those who attempt to go for them as the game ages. What happens when Gears 5 rolls around? Will TC just stop hosting these events and make the achievements impossible to earn?

Of course this sort if thing is to be expected with a game that heavily focuses on MP content--the game effectively has an expiration date; but at least then, when MP achievements become much harder to get, we can chalk it up as a result of the game going through its natural life cycle. But in this particular case, it feels like the developer isn't taking the long view.

It wouldn't be so bad if we got reassurances from TC that the requirements would be eased down the road like, say, the events were on going or the weapons became craftable.

Its not unprecedented, as they did make some of the pre-order content and other skins more readily available. Still, some assurances would be appreciated.

Resor xPLI never really bothered with special events but have flaming lancer as a log in bonus. The console's achievement tracker shows 0% progress on the achievement but on xbox mobile app it shows 20%. Was wondering if it shows 40 or 60% for those of you who have flaming markza and/or longshot?
Posted by Resor xPL on 12 Dec 17 at 10:58
The Allslayer@Stoic Slab They said on reddit they can change how to get them when they stop the events.
Posted by The Allslayer on 12 Dec 17 at 12:09
Stoic SlabThat's good to hear.

Still not a fan of the conditions as is, but at least no one will miss out just because they started too late.

Edos@Resor POL Mine shows 100% even though I only have 3 flaming skins right now. However I did complete the challenges for every event other T-bow tag. It's like the game already knows I deserve the achievement despite me not having the skins yet laugh
Posted by Edos on 13 Dec 17 at 09:33
I really do hope they will make enough of these events
Posted on 13 Dec 17 at 12:05
FiveWizzThey should have AT LEAST released an event at the same time of the achievements. That makes logical and marketing sense to me. Get everyone on one skin prove that they're commited etc. Hopefully they get going when gearsmas properly starts ??
Posted by FiveWizz on 13 Dec 17 at 13:14
FrizbogDoes anyone know when they are going to award the weapons for Pumpkinball, Gears 1 Classic, and Gears 2 Classic?
Posted by Frizbog on 13 Dec 17 at 16:24
Slayer Reigning@Frizbog They said some time in December hopefully.

Posted by FiveWizz on 15 Dec 17 at 23:38
HollabackGamingAnyone know why the registration let's you sign up multiple times, and I wonder if you resign up if it negates the progress you've already made. I did the registration on my phone, then on Xbox to make sure. Some clarification would be nice, thanks!
Posted by HollabackGaming on 16 Dec 17 at 00:41
Stoic SlabI'm not sure if melees count, but just to be on the safe side, I would assume not.

I just finished the versus gearsmas challenges and while tallying my kills, I didn't count melee or execution kills.
Posted by Stoic Slab on 16 Dec 17 at 01:58
Slayer ReigningMelee kills do not count. It's stated the it be be with the weapon shot.

@Hollaback Also once your account is registered you should be fine. I don't think hitting register again will affect anything. Although you may want to reach out to The Coalition for support.

AradorJust FYI if you live in Australia/New Zealand this Achievement is basically impossible to get legit as there isn't many players, and since the fucking retarded cunts at TC got rid of changing servers you will have to join/create sessions or have American/European mates in order to find matches
Posted by Arador on 18 Dec 17 at 04:28
Lord Von ChimpIs there any way of checking if you've completed this other than pen and paper, or some indication when you've met the targets? keeping track via Pen and paper is one thing, but what if joining a half done game doesn't count as a win? or the kills only count from a game you've played from the start?
Posted by Lord Von Chimp on 18 Dec 17 at 08:15
Slayer Reigning@Darth There is no tracking whatsoever. Pen and paper is the best thing you can do. If you want to play it safe I would go a bit over the requirements.
Posted by Slayer Reigning on 18 Dec 17 at 15:06
MR GABR1EL 95Easy method, go to warjornal, weapons, scroll down to boomshot, you will gonna see how many kills you have, write in a paper, now play snowball and keep looking on warjornal.

LAZY SHIKAMARUXAnyone know if they are going to put previous weapons up as a reward for future events?
Posted by LAZY SHIKAMARUX on 23 Dec 17 at 03:39
Slayer Reigning@Lazy Coalition said they will repeat weapons later on. No dates were confirmed.
Posted by Slayer Reigning on 23 Dec 17 at 03:56
BigErnMI can confirm that the tracking for these is not very accurate. It must not always count matches joined in progress because I definitely won 5 matches of each type for the flaming snub but didn't get awarded it. I would say be conservative and win a few over the limit and make sure you are in the match before it starts and after it finishes.
Posted by BigErnM on 23 Dec 17 at 20:12
Slayer Reigning^ That's the safest way to ensure the skins. I always olgo about an extra 1/4 or 1/3 of the requirements.
Posted by Slayer Reigning on 23 Dec 17 at 20:52

AceMcCloudI wasn't bothered about doing the requirements for the skins, I only got the Flaming Lancer for logging in, had I known it would become an achievement I would have bothered with them.

I hope it doesn't take too long for the events.
Posted by AceMcCloud on 29 Dec 17 at 12:52
Slayer Reigning@Ace I don't think anyone would have expected these event skins to become an achievement. I certainly didn't.

BudgetBallin360For the current event, is the last day the 1st or the 2nd? Do I have just today to complete it or today and tomorrow?

Slayer ReigningI'd play it safe and complete it today. They'll probably take it down early tomorrow most likely.

HolyHalfDeadArador - I got 6 AU and NZ players together and we all searched in two teams and seperatelty for an hour and didn't get a match. I also searched for 2 hours at a time several times and never got a match. The only way AU and NZ players can get this achievement is by getting an invite from someone in the US who is already in a match.

You can use the tracker from Solution for Master At Arms in Gears of War 4 to track your 100 Snowshot kills :)

Shaneanigenslooks like there might be an event tied to the one shot one kill event later this month. If not, theyve confirmed there will be events for valentines day and st patricks day but havent said whether they were multiplayer or horde events, but at least we can see there will be monthly events for the foreseeable rest of the year.

Crunkin Jamaicai read but also when i start the game says osok is back and shows flamming longshot i think you get it why should they show the skin for nothing and who confirmed thats no rewards because you dont have to register???

Posted by MIK813 on 21 Jan 18 at 19:38
AceMcCloudI suspect they did intend to, but as they're still struggling to sort out the Cluckshot and Flaming Snub, my guess is the Gearsmas skins will be delayed beyond January and the monthly events may not start until they fix the problem.

NeM2KHolyHalfDead - where does it have the # of snowshot kills on the weapon tracker? http://24.216.206.219:8001/G4Maa/ - is it included in the Boomshot kills stat?
Posted by NeM2K on 21 Jan 18 at 21:54
Slayer ReigningIt's tracked as boomshot.
Posted by Slayer Reigning on 21 Jan 18 at 22:31
AceMcCloudYeah, I'd call it the "Master at Arms" and "I Like Em Crispy" tracker, for any Versus events involving # number of kills with a weapon, at the start of the event, use the tracking and note down your kills for that weapon, then play nothing but that event in Versus, and when your number of kills with that weapon has increased over the number of required kills, then can be fairly confident it's registered enough kills, I would do 1.5 - 2 times the number of kills (and match wins) to be on the safe side.

That's if they ever start doing the events again, probably waiting on a fix for tracking and distributing earned skins.
Posted by AceMcCloud on 22 Jan 18 at 11:18
ConfideValkyrieCan someone help me understand. Is this achievement still doable as of January 25, 2018? I took a break from Gears 4 online and completely missed the special event

AceMcCloudIf your achievement progress doesn't increase, go into Customization and Inventory and locate the skins and select them, then restart the game, at some point it will wake up and increase the progress percent.

HolyHalfDeadNow that they have released all the skins this achievement is pretty much discontinued. They are continuing to release Crimson Omen skins, but there are no new ways planned to earn Flaming skins, until the end of April at least.
Posted by HolyHalfDead on 09 Feb 18 at 03:09
Slayer ReigningStill have enforcer, embarrassed, and overkill to go.
Posted by Slayer Reigning on 09 Feb 18 at 03:33
LambsteinNo dropshot for me. 100+ kills.
Well, a discontinued achievement saves me a lot of money. If Gears of War becomes incompletable, there is no way in hell I will buy Gears of War 5, 6 or whatever.
Posted by Lambstein on 09 Feb 18 at 04:58
FiveWizzSurely they'll put in more events with second opportunities for flame skins that have already been released?? That's how it seemed anyway. I only have 2 so need 3 more :/
Posted by FiveWizz on 09 Feb 18 at 09:28
AceMcCloud"Year of the Dog AND Daily Rewards" Feb 16th - Mar 2nd, possibly this could be more opportunities at Flaming skins, it's two weeks long.
Posted by AceMcCloud on 09 Feb 18 at 10:44
HolyHalfDeadAceMcCloud - that is a Horde event, which would be a Crimson Omen skin at best, but there is no indication of that.

There used to be one or two Flaming skin events per month, and now there is nothing announced. There is another Crimson Omen skin horde event 16th March - https://gearsofwar.com/en-us/community/whatsup-feb8-2018

You are completly at the mercy of TC on whether or not you will be able to get this achievement.
Posted by HolyHalfDead on 09 Feb 18 at 10:50
FiveWizzLove it! :) *Dying inside*
Posted by FiveWizz on 09 Feb 18 at 11:32
SiegfriedXI'm also worried. From what they posted it seems they are giving regular skins and not flaming skins for the next batch of events... We'll have to wait and see. It would be a complete dick move from them not re-releasing skins, since the achievement only came out after you could no longer get them. They pretty much released a broken achievement for a lot of people.

Best move from them would be to give those new skins AND also give some flaming skins along for people that do not have them.
Posted by SiegfriedX on 09 Feb 18 at 17:22
Hockey EdMissing both flaming skins from Snowball fight. I registered the same day as the Jingle Juvies event. Got those skins. Not sure what happened.

ClevelandFanSoo when are they gonna give us all our dropshot skin?
Posted by ClevelandFan on 10 Feb 18 at 00:32
AceMcCloudIt's why I emphasised the AND just because that is a Horde Event doesn't mean all the Daily Rewards, for two weeks, all have to be Horde related.

Also as I suspected, the Cupid Torque Bow Tag event that's just started is another chance at the Flaming Torque Bow, plus a new Flaming skin, so no need for the doom and gloom, in fact, with Esports skins/events too, it's a pretty busy calendar for the next two/three months.
Posted by AceMcCloud on 10 Feb 18 at 01:43

100 kills in Cupid torque bow for flaming enforcer

So it’s a second chance at one which is good.

z0rrofoxJust to chime in. No dropshot for me. Well over the 100 kill mark.unless mid game joins don't count. Which they should tell you. Garbage.
Posted by z0rrofox on 10 Feb 18 at 11:39
Moldy Tacos5000With the dropshot still missing I'm a little reluctant to go grind 100 torque bow tag kills for nothing.
Posted by Moldy Tacos5000 on 10 Feb 18 at 15:34
AceMcCloudI wouldn't count joined games for wins, I'd have thought kills would have counted.
Executions might not count as weapon kills.

Using the Master At Arms tracker at this link you can see your Torque Bow kills, make a note of the number you start with, then play Cupid Torque Bow tag until you've gotten over a 100 kills, I'd say get more kills to be on the safe side, as many as you're willing or able to.
http://gowtaccom.weebly.com/tools.html
Don't get Torque Bow kills in any other mode while doing this.
It's what I did for Gearsmas and I got the Flaming Dropshot with the Boomshot.

Circa Darkrage^ No. You can get 15 kills each day, as long as you get 100 kills across all the sessions and matches you play, you will get the skin.

Don't forget to register, and keep a note of how many you've got on your side.

Posted by The Jobbymaster on 13 Feb 18 at 09:16
FiveWizzI got both of mine. But maybe I was lucky.

What I did do as an FYI was only count kills and victories from FULL games. If I joined halfway through a match I didn't add them to my self-made tally. I'm doing the same for the Torque Bow Challenge. Worked last time so figuring it can't hurt this time.

ClevelandFanI know, that's my point.
Posted by ClevelandFan on 15 Feb 18 at 16:14
DaffyioneThere is no point to that! The Cupid skin is a freebie.

The event skins are the ones for the achievement and have to be earned, that's what makes it an achievement... They are not just going to give you the skin to get the achievement without even doing anything!!
Posted by Daffyione on 16 Feb 18 at 10:07
TOBY 1K NO BEBut most us did do the requirements. I think that point he's trying to make is that if it's that easy to give us a skin, why can't they give us the skin we earned.

For information I also counted direct kills where I was in the match from the start and I didn't get the dropshot

Posted by DarkVirgil89 on 13 Mar 18 at 17:50
transkymanFor the flaming enforcer and flaming torque: The coallition has not announce that those have started to roll out. The status is still the same: "To be awarded". Read the solution from @Slain Incarnate, the valentines skins haven't been awarded. It should be a matter of days.
Posted by transkyman on 13 Mar 18 at 18:17

Posted by ClevelandFan on 14 Mar 18 at 14:31
Paralyze33@EbonHawk01 I highly doubt this is unobtainable. There has only been opportunities to obtain flaming skins for 11 of the 14 weapons so far. I would think they would offer chances at the other 3 at the very least, to complete the full set.

Posted by ClevelandFan on 19 Mar 18 at 20:18
HolyHalfDeadA4L ParalyzE - one event in 3 months pretty much means some people will not be able to get this achievement. You say there should be 3 more skins, but what if you haven't got any so far? There were over 130 events for Sybarite, and yet there are still people that couldn't get achievement. If I knew they were going to add more Sybarite crap into this game I probably won't have started it, but to add it later then make it retroactive long after I had finished the game is plain dirty.
Posted by HolyHalfDead on 20 Mar 18 at 05:49
SiegfriedX@ClevelandFan To be fair, we knew they would not be released mid march the moment Coalition said they would be released mid march laugh

@A4L ParalyzE That's pretty much the reason this is the last Gears of War game I'll ever play as long as it's made by Coalition. Everything they did with this game is wrong. They released SEVERAL DLCs with absolutely no new content at all to justify them. They made we play the game 7 times just because of some new stupid achievement. They made we play the same horde maps over and over again. The same multiplayer over and over again.

Everything they did with this game was to please the minority of people that only play Gears of War everyday, year after year until the next one comes out and then they move on. The "content" they released is either completely ignored by the vast majority of players, because it brings nothing new to the game at all, or pisses people that though they were done with the game and have more things to play.

If they wanna please solely the top 1% of their player base, so be it. Try and sell the next game to this small group of people and then tell me how this works out. I know for a fact they won't get more money from me ever again.
Posted by SiegfriedX on 20 Mar 18 at 06:21
TG Airborne 88@SiegfriedX I feel your anger and it's not only that. They had passed events I simply did not care for because gaming nowadays is all about those friggin' weapon skins! And then TC decides a year later, oh let's put in achievements for weapon skins! Why didn't those morons over there do that from the get go with launch instead? So instead of being able to leave this game behind, I have to dig it up once in a while for those events and hope against hope they actually award the skins (in time which we all know, they can't keep their promises).

J2B9@holyhalfdead Theyve already said that if they stop doing event they'll make the skins craftable so that the achievements won't be unobtainable.
Posted by J2B9 on 23 Mar 18 at 22:38
AceMcCloudYeah... but did you notice how the Card Conpanion server went down recently and no one had any of their cards until it came up? So should the Coalition developers close or move on and the card conpanion server falls over again then they'll be so many unobtainables in this game.

For Flaming Skins, because they come from Versus, they had a huge backlog, they said they're waiting to do more events until they've got all the skins out, should be doing the Valentine day ones next.

They came up with a better method for the Horde ones so there's been quite a few of those events and will continue, they did say they were working on a better method for the Versus ones, I expect within the recent updates, maybe the 28th March ("April") update they could put in a better method of tracking kills/wins across matches in versus and unlock cards. After that they'll hopefully be more events and more often if they done have to then spend weeks manually checking and giving out the Skins.

J2B9Well my point being that there's no reason to worry about it being unobtainable anytime soon even if u had none at this point. Your talking about if they close the servers and cards stop working/don't exist anymore. Microsoft doesn't just shut down servers for their games like that, if you can't still go back And play old gears or halos this will be fine for a long time to be able to craft the skins then. And if you are starting this game that far into the future you should know what you're getting into anyways.

Flaming weapons events will be back in late April. Hope this helps.

Well, they are getting better, only a week late this time, hopefully everyone who earned them, received them.
Communication still needs some work.

Paralyze33HolyHalfDead & Siegfried

You should have your Valentine's event skins now and they count toward the achievement, just as they should. They've already announced the next opportunities for flaming skins will be late April. You'll get your skins. You guys are overreacting. Seems like gamers are never satisfied with any game. Seems like every community is full of compliants no matter what game you go to. I've seen this game is no different.

I enjoy this game, and while I agree there's things they could fix, I also feel they've gotten a lot right in this game as well.

LFC NEMESIS@ bibi, read one post above yours. Next Flaming event will be late April
Posted by LFC NEMESIS on 28 Mar 18 at 14:16
SiegfriedXA4L ParalyzE

If you read my comment carefully you'll see I never even mentioned this achievement or skins. I'm disappointed by the fact that they keep releasing achievements that are boring and bring no new things to the game. It's not only coalition doing that. Final Fantasy XV did that on the latest DLC. Tomb Raider did it. Dead Rising 4 did it. It's like the new cancer, release achievements that just make you replay content you have already played with nothing new at all. I don't know how some people can find this a good thing. Gears just took it all to the next level making us replay things over and over again That's why Coalition is the one I despise the most. They are not by far the only ones in the wrong here, they are just the worst of the lot.
Posted by SiegfriedX on 05 Apr 18 at 01:40
xxDAMRONxxI disagree. They added inconceivable which was different. Beating iron man coop was tough as well. We died twice in act V so it was awesome to finally finish it. Increased horde skills. They really have done a great job with this game

Posted on 06 Apr 18 at 21:04
Silicon Iceman@xxDAMRONxx; you do realize you've just proven SiegfriedX's point, right? His whole point is that The Coalition doesn't release any new content and they just release achievements to make you play the same content over and over again. You've disagreed, but only list things that make you play the same content over and over again.

A higher difficulty, a "one life" mode and increasing the skill card cap is not new content.

Flaming Overkill as well as another chance at Flaming Lancer in new 2v2 challenges next week?

I wonder when they'll give us another chance to get these for those of us who didn't get them before they released the achievement:
Flaming Markza Mk.1
Flaming Longshot
Flaming Retro Lancer
Flaming Hammerburst
Flaming Gnasher
Flaming Snub

Slayer ReigningNot sure what Coalition is up to. It was apparent that they said 3 plus a bonus Lancer. I'll post and PM full details tomorrow after the new What's Up.
Posted by Slayer Reigning on 02 May 18 at 22:02
Galuda WingsI absolutely love how they're like "late April!" and now they're like "oh yeah it'll actually be in May". Why do these guys have to push almost everything back ? Sighhh. I really just don't care for The Coalition at all. (Sorry, I know that's been said about a billion times, I'm just irritated.)
Posted by Galuda Wings on 02 May 18 at 22:29
Slayer ReigningHello guys and gals. The new versus event will be starting today at 3PM PT, which is about 2 and a half hours from now. As promised, there are FOUR Flaming weapon skins up for grabs during this event.

https://gearsofwar.com/en-us/community/whatsup-may3-2018

Flaming Weapon Skin Challenges

Completionists, get ready. The last 3 Flaming Weapon Skins in the collection – the EMBAR, Boltok and Overkill – are up for grabs as part of BTTE! You’ll also get a second shot at picking up the Flaming Lancer as part of the challenges.

Here’s how you’ll collect those sweet Flaming Weapon Skins with your Gears wingman of choice:

We’re In This Together (Flaming Overkill and Boltok)
Complete 10 matches of Brothers To The End or Social TDM

Deadly Duo (Flaming Lancer and EMBAR)
Win 10 matches of Brothers To The End or Social TDM

Why do the challenges count in Social TDM you ask? It’s a quirk of our stat tracking that allowed us to enable these Challenges in time for the event. If you prefer to get them that way, we won’t stop you.

Just like the Griffin challenge, you’ll be able to track your completion progress for these challenges in the Xbox Guide like any other achievement. Once completed, head to gearsofwar.com/en-us/my-rewards (page will be live once the event begins) to instantly claim your skins.

BTTE and it’s associated challenges will be available from Thursday May 3rd at 3pm PT – Monday May 14th at 10am PT.
So hop on, grab a buddy, and knock out the 2 challenges to receive 4 Flaming weapon skins. And hopefully nab the achievement if you don't already have it.

Feel free to shoot me a message if you have any further questions, comments, or concerns. Thanks for the continued support! Until next time.

Posted by Slayer Reigning on 04 May 18 at 11:48
TheStick17So I've unlocked 6 skins including the 4 that just came out and the achievement did not unlock for me.
Posted by TheStick17 on 04 May 18 at 16:39
AceMcCloudDid you scrap any of them?
You need to have 5 flaming weapon skins in your inventory at the same time to unlock it.
Until then, it'll count how many you currently have and increase the tracker up to that many fifths as a percentage (1 = 20%, 2 = 40%, 3 = 60%, 4 = 80%).
Achievement trackers only increase, they don't decrease, so when you scrap a flaming weapon skin it doesn't reduce the tracker completion percentage, but until you get up to the same amount of flaming weapon skins you had before you scrapped them, it won't increase.

e.g. Have two flaming weapon skins, tracker shows 40% (if it doesn't, restart the game).
You scrap both flaming weapon skins, tracker remains at 40%, but you have 0 flaming weapon skins.
You earn 2 more flaming weapon skins, tracker stays at 40%, as you only have 2 Flaming weapon skins at the moment, that's 40%, once you get another flaming weapon skin and don't scrap the 2 you have, it'll go to 60% as you now have 3 flaming weapon skins.
Posted by AceMcCloud on 04 May 18 at 17:04
OneNastyGrubProgress stuck at 10 percent after 12 completed matches and 0 percent after6 wins, anyone else having trouble with tracking?
Posted by OneNastyGrub on 04 May 18 at 18:48
Dragonborn GearFor me, when I got the skins, I had to quit the game and relaunch it for it to read the new skins. As for progress not updating, it updated for me when I go to "See all my achievements" instead of "Achievement list" and actually select Gears of War 4. After that, going back into the gears of war 4 achievement list as normal will have the updated percentages. That's been true of all games lately. If I unlocked an achievement or my tracker isn't updating, usually viewing the game's actual achievements instead of the shortcut list will make them pop or update.
Posted by Dragonborn Gear on 04 May 18 at 20:20
AceMcCloudTheMarkOfPower yeah I noticed the challenge tracking was slow to update, it eventually updated though.
I need a few more wins.
Posted by AceMcCloud on 05 May 18 at 15:27
MAJICO70One more, hopefully they won't stop :-)
Posted by MAJICO70 on 06 May 18 at 17:21
MickeyOReillySo with the 4 from this event - I have 5 Flaming skins except 2 of them are Lancers. So 4 different ones. Am I screwed for this achievement? Or is there going to be another chance to get a 5th different one?
Posted by MickeyOReilly on 06 May 18 at 19:33
Slayer ReigningThere should be more events.
Posted by Slayer Reigning on 06 May 18 at 20:01
AceMcCloudNow they have the "achievement challenge and website claim" method, I expect they'll redo chances to get the other Flaming weapon Skins since before December in events every month now.

Don't scrap any flaming weapon Skins until you've gotten five different ones, well can probably scrap duplicates.
Posted by AceMcCloud on 06 May 18 at 20:21
HolyHalfDeadKanchanaburi - this achievement is flagged as Partly Discontinued because if you can't get into a Public Match then you cannot get this achievement. It doesn't look like TC have any intention on fixing the bug that causes this which has been there since day 1, but if they do the flag will get removed.
Posted by HolyHalfDead on 08 May 18 at 11:20
Slayer ReigningTry hard resetting or viewing the game hub for Gears 4
Posted by Slayer Reigning on 09 May 18 at 12:31
SpecialIKayI've currently got 6 different ones, but achievement still not popping? Maybe in a few days when the latest weapon skins have been fully updated into the game. Got my latest 2 to make it go from 4 to 6 but achievement has not popped as of yet.

EDIT: A quick restart of my X1 console and booting the game up to the main menu and sat for about 2-3 mins and the achievement had popped. Just for anyone who might have over the 5 different flaming weapon skins and the achievement doesn't pop when you get rewarded the skins, do a restart of your console and sit in the main menu for a few mins and the achievement should pop for you.

misterman08lobotomized doesn't count as that's a horde challenge and horde isn't considered "versus" so you will have to do the 10 games of OSOK to get your 5 "versus" flaming skins

I got 5 heartbeat, omen, and flaming skins from the lobotomized challenge and my progress bar for "I like em crispy" didn't move from 20% even though I just got 5 flaming skins

JsizzlacJust read a post on Reddit stating they are waiting until the summer to release the patch so they have time to make Gears 5 not suck I guess.

The KrimmReaperIf they continue working gears 5 gears 4 will never get this update? What happened to accountability for companies making promises?

The KrimmReaperGears 4 needs to be removed from the microsoft store if they dont fix the acievements. Bo3 was almost pulled for broken dlc so why is gears allowed to get away with broken content?

Constrictusit's summer comrades! there is news about when the promised update will be? I repeatedly wrote in those support and received 0 answers. Are there people like me here? someone answered support?
Posted by Constrictus on 30 Jun 20 at 16:58
Mariano80PLCoalition give a shit to gears 4 and Players still playing this game they only care about broken gears 5 and they New operation i wish MS close this studio....
Posted by Mariano80PL on 03 Jul 20 at 07:21
Aquatic NeonWhat can we honestly do at this point? I was ignored by support as well Constrictus. What about Microsoft support? It’s not fair they kept changing and delaying the plans. At this rate it seems we will never get a fix. This achievement would literally kill my completed account.
Posted by Aquatic Neon on 07 Jul 20 at 03:15
k devil riderI take it from the comments, that there has been no update from MS unlocking the skins?
Posted by k devil rider on 27 Jul 20 at 08:13
Constrictusthere was no update, but this is not a reason to give up, it all depends on us, write to support, on the forums, on Twitter. You should not sit and wait until everything is decided by itself, I believe that the players who are waiting and do nothing are to blame for the fact that the update did not come. Developers ignore us because we are few, forums and tweeter are full of various questions, and this issue is the least discussed. Stop sitting and waiting! now the word of each player has huge weight

YonderGruntI’d love to help. Unfortunately I don’t have the best links and don’t know where to find them. If you guys could link the forums and twitter page I will happily help in getting this achievement obtainable

Super JurayNews...? cry

Constrictushttps://forums.gearsofwar.com/ this is a link to the official forum, create topics we will discuss, at the moment there are only promises from the developers, they say they have not forgotten about the update, but no one names specific dates, I note the summer has already passed, although perhaps the developers were not talking about this summer) maybe next summer) or in 5 - 10 years but this is not certain)

AceMcCloudThe changes require QA testing to ensure they don't cause any issues or break the game, this is currently low down on the list, with QA having a long list of items to work through currently, including but not limited to Gears 5 Operations (Op 4 released recently, Op 5 coming soon), regular Title Updates for fixes, and for November 10th Gears 5 for Xbox Series X/S, Gears Tactics for Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One/X/S.

- Mentioned by Dana, Director of Communications for The Coalition on the Developer Stream, Thursday September 10th 2020.


Since there's normally a Gearsmas event every December, I'd guess this will not be able to be addressed until Jan 2021 at the earliest, is my personal opinion.

Snatch SnakeVery disappointing that they dont just add them probably doesnt take a ton of effort

SuperScotI just crafted 5 skins for each and no achievements.
Edit: Nevermind, just needed to restart Xbox. 😁
Posted by SuperScot on 10 Nov 20 at 07:10
ConstrictusAt last!!!! finally comrades !!! there is news from the fields !!!! good news !!!! now these skins can be created !!! Thanks to everyone who was active on the official forums !!! and to those who were on the sidelines and were lazy to come in and support in this matter, I will say: water does not flow under the lying stone and let this situation serve as an example to many.

We waited 1.5 years and it happened! Hooray! HOORAY!
Posted by Constrictus on 10 Nov 20 at 09:14
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?
Posted by Tandar1 on 10 Nov 20 at 14:39
Dutch x Monster3000 for flaming 500 for midnight omen
Posted by Dutch x Monster on 10 Nov 20 at 14:43
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.
Posted by FiveWizz on 10 Nov 20 at 16:30
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.
