As of this morning the long awaited Title Update 2 patch for Gears of War 2 that hopefully sorts out matchmaking issues has been released. To confirm a rumour, when playing Horde Mode online, the player now has unlimited ammunition for the Lancer Rifle.
A few fixes included in the patch are:
- Exploit Fixes: Crabwalking, invisibility, weapon-slide, melee through walls, unlimited ammo.
- General Fixes: Shotgun and Boomshot updates, meatshield chainsawing updates, team communication, Insane gamer pic award.
- Balancing: Planted proximity grenade updates, increased quitting penalties, spawn protection, flamethrower stopping power.
- Improvements: Annex uses execution rules, achievement progression in the War Journal, added 7 DLC-based achievements worth 175 gamerscore.
