I smell SwiftKey...

Yeah, I tried using the Sawed Off and it's ridiculous. I still think that it's overpowered and that they need to decrease the area of effect, but the lack of ammo does hurt a bit.

What is SwiftKey?

Yea, I do agree with the area of effect. You don't even have to aim with this thing. You just have get close to them and pull the trigger. I got the "spray and pray" pin and I think its from that.

SwiftKey is an add-on keyboard app for Android. Just looked like something you typed on your phone with auto-caps on.

I used to, pretty much exclusively, hip-fire the shotty in Gears 1. Gears 2 brought an end to that. They ruined the hip-fire placement (Boomshot hip-fire was killed too...)
It seems to be back, but I am having a hard time going back. (although the Boomshot has been nerfed...kind of a shame.)
Anyone else notice the splash from the frag is kinda weird? I have quite a few kills that I thought didn't take...and a half a second later I show the kill register...Conversely, I have died, that same half a second, after I ran by a tagged wall, hear the detonator, the "BOOM"...I am still running, and THEN die?!?!?!

They added Capture the Leader back in. Tried it this morning, like KotH if you don't have a good team don't waste your time playing it.

Ctl played ok before, but with the amount of people on now I'm sure it's gotten worse.

KOTH is frustrating. Last night I had 15 caps and my teammates had a total of 3. It doesn't seem to matter what game you play any more, every mode in that game is played for kills.

Yup, that's why you need a good team to play the objective games. Otherwise people will just treat it like TDM. Especially since people want to unlock characters and such.

You can get it refunded, you don't have to put it towards another pre-order. That said, sorry you don't like the game. I think it's a dramatic improvement over Gears 2.

Just chiming in to say I think this game is the bee's knees.
I am just loving it. It plays so much faster and better than the other two entries.

Played with an outstanding party of 5 last night and in 15+ games we lost once, we absolutely rolled most everyone we played. One game we joined a new lobby and it was all bots, the other team was winning 15-5. We all spawned and got them down to 1 spare respawn before they killed all but our last guy. He single handedly killed all 5 of them + their respawn by himself, they were furious!

Unlocked my Gold Retro Lancer in the retail, not sure why I cared to get it since I know I'll never use it but hey, it's one extra thing so why not.

So I'm in a room where everyone has the head of a bunny, with big floppy bunny ears. Is this a thing? You guys get this?

I think the bunny heads were added in last weekend for Easter but someone forgot to turn it off...I find them annoying. Makes it hard to aim and idenfity opponents.

I'm surprised they did the bunny heads again after all of the complaints last week. Yesterday my headset was filled with bellyaching about not being to tell who from who, which I didn't find to be as bad, but I did get fooled once.

I got my pre-order code but it did not work , called GS and they said they can only give me one (sorry) so I am considering getting my pre-order through GS refunded and just grabbing it at launch.

If anyone has an extra code they have no use for, I too would appreciate it (via PM). I don't know if the codes can be used by more than one subscriber but I would be glad to pass it on after a few days if they can.

Thank You, much appreciated.

Had some epic battles last night. I was playing KOTH on Checkout. Everyone bunched up in the middle where the frags were and I came in with the sawed-off and killed 4 with one shot and downed the fifth person. I received “the quad” ribbon. Awesome!

OK, so I've not really played CTL because, honestly, going with randoms is boring. But on whim I tried it again today and while it was a bunch of randoms everyone actually knew how to play the game mode (ie, not treating it like TDM). Oh...my...gosh, far and away the best mode in the game! I can't tell you how many amazingly close games we had, it's really rough when you have two leaders who know what to do. Played one ROUND on Trenches and we held the leader back and forth, I was the leader on our team and TWICE they got the counter down to under 3 seconds. First time a teammate saved me with his shotgun, next time they got me all the way back to their freaking spawn and I knew it was over, and a smoke grenade came out of nowhere and separated us and I was able to scurry out. We ended up winning after like 17 mins.

Absolutely epic mode, do not write it off if you get frustrated with a crappy team, get a good team and it is amazingly intense!

Played a few CTL myself and it gets intense. TDM not so much. Probably the mode I like the least. I think the spawn points make or break the match especially on CTL when you think your safe at your spawn.

For sure. I called that one after the first day and I saved our guy with 1 second left. The mode is great.

I haven't had a chance to play since they brought it back yet. I'm gonna have to get on tonight.

I like tdm. It's a fun take on it, and I love when the other team has a bunch of respawns left and you're able to go on a huge killstreak to win the match.

I love the retards that play KOTH like it's TDM. I rack up massive points by breaking the point and I'll have twice as many points as the other people with half as many kills. I've always done well at those kinds of game types.
