The Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta is over and for the next few months our worlds will be a little dimmer – while we patiently wait for the retail release of one of the year’s most anticipated games.
Even though our time with the beta was short, there was still plenty of noteworthy moments to share from it. Think your team is good?Have they ever beat an opposing team in Gears without firing a single shot?
One Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta team got together and decided that winning just wasn’t enough anymore. Defying all logic, they rushed headlong into their battle and took their opponents by surprise by making sure every single kill in the match came from melee range. Amazingly, they did so without losing a single round either.
The rules for victory were fairly simple:
- You cannot fire a bullet from any weapon
- You can Chainsaw with the Lancer for a kill
- You can Retro Charge with the Retro Lancer for a kill
- You can Melee for a kill
- You can Tag with a Smoke Grenade for a kill
Don’t just take our word for it though, watch the impressive and at times hilarious video below.
Gears of War 3 is shaping up to be one of the biggest releases of the year, with over 1 million pre-orders already in for Epic Games’ next gore-fest.
Next Saturday gamers will be getting their first official glimpse at the story of Gears of War 3 when the first commercial airs during the NBA Finals and Champions League Final Match.
Will this be a challenge you and your friends try to accomplish when Gears of War 3 is finally released?
