THIS WEEK IN GEARS – MARCH 23 – 29

Hello everyone!

A new week means we have a new This Week in Gears!

VERSUS EVENT: HYPER DODGEBALL

Hyper Dodgeball returns! Eliminate the opposing team to win. Every kill brings back a dead teammate.

Remember as its hyper that means respawn times are 2 seconds, so expect fast and frenetic action with each respawn in the mode!

To celebrate this event, we have a special Medal group you can complete, which will grant you 3,000 Coins.

  • Good Work – Deal 50,000 Damage in the Hyper Dodgeball Versus Event
  • Oh Sweet Oblivion – Get 50 eliminations in the Hyper Dodgeball Versus Event
  • More than soldiers – Complete 10 Rounds in the Hyper Dodgeball Versus Event
  • You are the Support – Score 1,000 Points or more in 3 Hyper Dodgeball matches.

Good luck!

We’ll be releasing a title update this Tuesday which addresses numerous sound issues with Escalation. This means that the season finals should go ahead without any issue!

Just a humble request, can we please bring back stuff which isn’t in the store for featured content?

Understand its theme based, but shouldn’t vaulted items be brought back instead?

Well, call me again next week when there’s interesting stuff to be looked at.

When are you gonna fix the broken head hitbox on DeeBee’s in Horde/Escape 1517027145186

Can we have it so that Blademaster Ult actually stuns scions and similar enemies, or change the wording for it?

So they do fix sound issues but they STILL despite being an issue since LAUNCH that the Swarm Imago’s roadie breathing is still too damn loud. It hasn’t been patched despite all that. Geez.

Finally, a new skin for my Ben!

Any word on the last three toxic skins…?

Been months.

Onto another issue with map rotation in social tdm, seem to allways get the same 4 maps in voting. Its always BUNKER, TRAINING GROUNDS, ICEBOUND AND DISTRICT.

The map u just played will get swapped out then will be back in voting the end of next match. But when we finally get a different map to vote for everyone on the other team has quit cause we 4 stack.

Its actually putting my friends and i off playing gears altogether.

Perhapss @TC_Kilo1062 knows of this bug, its been around since op5.

Is Farmer Dom not vaulted? I don’t know since I own him already.

No Hivebuster Anya…
