This week in Gears - Homerun Execution!

THIS WEEK IN GEARS 5: MAY 26 – JUNE 1

Longshot rifle

VERSUS EVENT: OSOK

Grab your Longshot and get sniping! The classic One Shot One Kill is back with the rules you want and love – head shot insta-kill, no melee and reduced body shot damage.

As an added perk, win 10 rounds of OSOK and you unlock the Homerun Execution!

NEW HIVE: MELEE BRAWL

Mac fights off rejects in an Escape Hive

Just like the name says, this melee focused Hive features a scarcity of ammo pickups but we’ve got you covered by packing the Hive full of grenades and pipes to beat down any and all foes.

Will play some OSOK I guess. Everything else is a heavy “meh”.

As far as weeks are concerned, this one isn’t too bad. I quite like OSOK and if it all works as described and melee is disabled, then it should be fun.

And Chrome Steel Clayton - what a classy mofo!

More interested in the new hive, as usual. Didn’t bother playing it at the start of Op 3 but it’s melee focused… and has pipes, apparently? I suspect I’ll be having some fun with Lahni using those if there’s plenty of venom coverage. Also took a peek at its modifiers then and it has a Shock Chain Warden modifier… that sounds fun.

Nothing for me to buy on the store this week again.
3rd week in a row :unamused:
Locust Bolter Skin when?

Right here… in Operation 2.

“Locust Bolter Character Skin – 500 Iron”

Unless it’s taken out of TCs vault of skins it isn’t returning for the foreseeable future. There was also an opportunity to grab it by the end of Op 2 but that isn’t of much help either.

I know, feels bad man.
Can you make a time machine for me lad?
I hear you can win the lottery if you do.

I wish the hive was named Fight Club.

‘Fraid not. Out of the talents I have, creating a functional time machine that also circumvents any paradoxes associated to time travel isn’t one. Neither is extreme luck for lottery(not that I’ve actually ever tried going for it).

Something tells me this is familiar but I don’t remember or recognize what this is referencing. Considering it is probably filled with Rejects and Wardens to bash up with pipes this could also be a fitting alternative name.

Sad times :sob:

OSOK isn’t in the FFA mode is it? (Longshot pic is taken from FFA mode, blue hue)

Good question. Could be artistic licence, could be a hint its in the FFA playlist. I guess we will find out in the next day :slight_smile:

Locust grenadier and sniper or we riot.

Yeah it’s 10 FFA OSOK wins to get homerun. You got one week so it should be easy to knock them out.
