Welcome to a special Gearsmas-Themed This Week in Gears! Before we get to the regular stuff, we’ve got a few updates.
DEVELOPER’S PLAYLIST TUNING
With the release of TU12, a few components of the developer’s playlist were mistakenly disabled. The good news is we will be reverting the tuning tomorrow, December 17. And as a reminder, this tuning will roll out into the game in January.
FATHER GEARSMAS MARCUS
We’ve got a special Gearsmas medal group that will keep you busy this holiday season. And if you need one more present, you can unlock Father Gearsmas Marcus for free just by completing the Gearsmas medal group.

VERSUS EVENT: OSOK
OSOK is makes an abbreviated appearance this week, so get those headshots in while you can. Just remember, the best way to spread Gearsmas cheer is to pop heads loud and clear.
And for the Snowball fight fans out there, your time will come.
HORDE EVENT: JINGLE JUVIES
That’s not Santa’s sleigh you hear coming at you…it’s wave after wave after wave of yelping Juvies.
Jingle Juvies is a 20 wave Horde event that features a lot of Juvies sporting antlers and boss waves featuring a lot of Juvies and lots of regular enemies to keep you on your toes.
Abominable Grenadier – 1,500 Iron
Gearsmas Tree Full Set – 850 Iron or 6,800 Gears Coins
Gearsmas 2020 banner – 200 Iron
Nutcracker Shepherd – 1,500 Iron or 10,000 Gears Coins
Ubly Sweater legacy weapon set – 425 Iron or 3,400 Gears Coins
Dear god almighty…why. (Don’t say it’ll be able to be bought with coins…if it’s the same as the other gold cards…Ronin Karn, Workout Fahz, and The Nutcracker…then it’ll be 10K. I can upgrade class cards with that.)
Why so much? It costs $5.00 less than the Hivebusters dlc!
There can be 3+ of them at a time. I only played it on Beginner for fun last year but damn it was literal Popper madness. Especially on the final wave(20) which was 80% Poppers, 10% Juvies and some other enemies. Sure felt that way. Also had triple Warden spawns on wave 10 here and there.
