GEARS GLORY

It’s gonna be May!

You had the hint last TWIG – we want to see your PvE or PvP headshots! Across the map with a Longshot? A from-the-hip with a Torque Bow? Cut that clip and send them to us on Instagram or Twitter under #GearsGlory. We’ll feature our favorites throughout the month, with the team’s top choices at the end of the month!

Please keep them short – we want to see the shot, not the whole match :wink:

Have a great week everyone!

Hivebuster Tai looks pretty cool.

I assume that the Brawl event will finish then? If so that’s annoying as my account is still bugged and won’t record any medal progression (as well as XP, skill cards, daily challenge rewards etc) so unless this gets fixed in the next 24 hours, I won;'t be able to complete this medal group.

Finally some good stuff, FFA to 14 players will be really fun.

Del and Tai are :fire: ( I assume there will be no problems purchasing things in the store?)

Will there be any new CS characters this week?

Every day. We stray further from hivebuster anya.

No… if they have HB Tai, then Sam must not be too far behind :triumph:

Does this mean all CS skins will be always available for purchase? Or is it like “Here are all the skins released. Come back later for a chance to purchase them!”?

Del finally got a hookup. I love his new armor and this color is gonna become a fan favorite of mine.

I believe this is at least the second time Skeleton Kait came back if I’m not wrong - would be great for me personally to see some OG Locusts return, like the Sniper and other drones.

Only one can hope :slightly_smiling_face:

If Tai looks like that, then I have hope for Sam.

Any pictures of what the neon esports load out set looks like? Thank you.

Not sure if this is the right thread, and following on from what Bleeding Pepper mentioned…

Any news on potential fix(es) to the various progression issues that have popped up over the last week?

There’s a good summary of the 3 more recent ones at post 9 in the above linked thread (all progression stopped, some progression stopped, boost xp not working).

All the best!
