THIS WEEK IN GEARS 5: AUG 11 – AUG 17

VERSUS EVENT: GNASHERS ONLY KOTH

![Knashers Only King of the Hill until August 17, 2020]

Welcome to the world of Gnasher-oriented mayhem!

Your movement and gun skill better be on point this week because every fight is gonna be up close and personal.

FEATURED HIVE: THE AMBUSH

As always, we’re keeping this Hive around for a weeks to give you the time to amp up the difficulty and nail your best score.

As a reminder, The Ambush is packed with enemies that come at you from unexpected angles. Go slowly (as best as you can with the Venom pushing you) because you never know when you will trigger enemies as they will come at you from unexpected angles.

FEATURED HORDE: RAIL LINE

Attacking enemies in the latest Horde Event, Rail Line. Available until August 25, 2020

Embrace the power of the high ground!

Rail Line is a tile-based map that is good size with lots of elevated areas. Take your time to scope out the perfect vertical position to create your base…as an added bonus we’ve added some pretty dense fog just to keep you on your toes. Good Luck!

It’s iron only for the initial release, the following week you can use coins to buy it. What’s the issue?

One week hasn’t been said by TC themselves.

It appears Sera has put a thread of their own up for this now.

Still with the incorrect “Knashers” picture.

"Go slowly (as best as you can with the Venom pushing you)’

Again the object is to escape with the fastest time, yes? That’s how you top the leaderboards? Why are you telling me to go slow in a time-attack mode. That’s the opposite of the objective.

Wish they made Major Paduk’s UIR armor this

instead of that Aspho UIR armor. At this point they’re really getting lazy re-using the same armor 4 times now (Aspho UIR soldier, Elite UIR soldier, UIR Cosmonaut and now Major Paduk) Also TC stop showing your greed even more by making the new store items Iron only and unbuyable with Gear coins

You don’t even have to go slowly. All the game does is spawn some Juvies behind you and occasionally a Pouncer or two underneath. You can go as far ahead of the venom as you like in this hive and be perfectly fine as long as someone just watches your backs.

Spelling typo, most likely. Not all of us use autocorrect or this was a case of autocorrect striking.

Knashers is where you go round weapon free and you have to bite people to death.

We need a melee FFA variant where everyone plays as a Popper juvie.

Thanks op for the info, major Paduk might buy this one ,horde event with dense fog/going to higher ground sounds fun,big thank you for the Xp weekend,did help a lot :+1:

That skin looks like a nazi from Wolfenstein.

Major Paduk slap, gotta bring the old wallet out.

33 weeks without a Lizzie skin.
