If you’re still working towards getting the Veteran Gear achievement and earning your wings on Gears of War 2 but are thinking that there’s no possible way to do it before Gears 3 is released, then this will be music to your ears. Epic Games has released schedules detailing all the XP Events from now until the release of Gears of War 3. Starting this weekend with a 5x multiplier, there will be an XP event every weekend with progressively higher multipliers.
In addition to the extra XP, be on the lookout for some change ups in horde mode. This weekend it’s “Tickers by the boatload,” and 36 shotgun rounds to take care of them. Check out the schedule below, and start cancelling any plans you had between now and 20th September because, based on previous XP events, it’ll be worth it.
