Kinda funny how Hivebuster Anya and the Redacted mark are both in the weekly store together :sweat_smile:

The Redacted mark should have been a black bar or the exact word. Or both.

Kinda just looks dumb when it’s a face covered by a black cloth if you ask me.

Will certainly pick up both Hivebuster skins when you can buy with coins. I wonder how the Corpser skins will look ingame.
I wonder how long this execution will take to do? Also when are we getting the starter Gears 2 curbstomp for all loadout weapons?
Not a fan of Omega Marcus or Dom so that is a hard pass.

One Shot One Kill will just be played for the medal group. I do like the Green and hopefully ingame they look great.

So…is OSOK with the “breechshot”? If not I am disappoint. At least even if just a pickup weapon it makes the run into your face people get what they deserve.

bs beast rider next week I’m guessing then? and heroic lahni ofc

BS skins are usually two weeks per. Same as it was for CS with some exceptions towards the end of earlier Operations if they were extended beyond the originally intended schedule.
