Now I don’t be meaning to imply hivebuster skins are underrated or anything. I just recently realized how much I enjoy the general aesthetic of those skins. I used to not really care for Del’s character for example, but I thought his hivebuster skin looked sweet. Out of boredom I decided to take him out for a spin in Escape with it equipped. As a result, I am somehow slowly growing fond of him. And he still looks really good.
I think from now on I will try to purchase every skin for this theme I see. Previously I didn’t care for any sort of collecting, but I might have changed my mind. Really hoping for Hivebuster Private Vermelo and Gabe to show up in the future.
I now also will always swap skins around when I play Escape to make people fit in better.
How about you guys? Anyone else also enjoying the hivebuster aesthetic? You got anyone on your wishlist that you hope to see a skin for?
Hive buster rod fergusson.
I’m totally in love of the hivebuster skin, that’s the only collection skin I really do (iron purchases before the gears coins).
I mean they all great and I like to play them on the pahanu map in horde aswell is kind of immersive lol.
My favorite is by far Marcus and the Clayton.
And when I saw the recent leak I’m really hype about the next who’s coming !!
Yep, hivebuster skins are great. The default for most of my characters.
Hive buster Clayton is cool as ■■■■ probs my favourite COG skin at the moment
HB Weapon skins are also pretty neat. Too bad it’ll probably take ages before they come to the store, if at all.
Clayton Carmine is my main in PvP.
When I saw the hivebuster skin for him, I just knew I had to equip it.
Hivebuster Clayton is the best hivebuster skin imo.
Maybe we could get a Hivebuster Anya/ Sam skin?
Even a Hivebuster Tai skin would be cool.
yeah Hivebuster skins are definitely the best new skins they introduced.
I only really like a few out of the whole set. Dom,Dizzy,Anya,Clayton and Del. The rest are kinda lame tbh.
Good work on Clay’s though, he’s my all time favorite.
I favorite Del’s hivebuster skin myself. He looks quite spiffy in hivebuster gear, I must say. It’s his best skin IMO. Was also the first store-only hivebuster skin I dropped coin on, second was Clay’s.
I’m personally not a fan of Hivebuster skins that break canon like Hivebuster Baird being young or the “rumored” upcoming Hivebuster Dom and Anya.
I prefer young Baird, and I see the others as fun “what-ifs”. Having anyone else other than Keegan, Lahni and Mac in a lobby already breaks a lot of canon
But… But… Hivebuster JD! Don’t forget about him!
(In my mother language, anya = mother and apa = father )
I like the fact that the hivebuster skins kind of resemble modern day battle gear. I’ve got them equipped on everyone who has one. Marcus is my main, of course. Here’s a wallpaper I made when it first came out.
Edit: for those who didn’t know, he actually carries and uses Dom’s knife that was given to him in Gears 3. I think that’s a great addition and really adds to the character. Of course Marcus would keep this knife and use it again in combat.
I can relate to never caring for Del… but it was his Winter skin that was my fav Del skin of both 4 and 5 lol… regardless Hivebuster skins are cool too
Nah that’s Oliver Queen, ask @ll_R_E_D_l
