TWIG: Feb 16th - 22nd

Hello everyone!

With a new week comes another This Week in Gears! We know last week was a little rough – a reminder that we have a post about the Re-ups here.

Versus Event: Arms Race

Take down your opponent with every gun. Completing three kills changes your team’s weapon. Get three kills with the final weapon to finish the match and defeat your enemies. Hope you know how to handle the big guns. Arms Race will be running until the end of Operation 5 as we prepare to move into Operation 6!

Horde Event

There will be no Horde Event this week and as we move towards Operation 6! In the meantime, please share your Boss Rush moments with us on your social platform of choice!

Escape Event: The Warren

This week’s hive is The Warren. With many electrified juvies to deal with, this one won’t be easy.

Gears Glory

As previously mentioned last week Gears Glory continues with the focus on Black History Month.

Today, we are featuring lx_kaos_gaming’s staying under pressure in his tribute to Gears of War.

Dexter Weeks’ Hana Cole looking ready to take on the Wakaatu!

You can submit your community content via the hashtag #GearsGlory on Twitter and Instagram, throughout the month we’ll be highlighting our favorites culminating with our selected favorites at the end of February. This is the last week to submit for February’s Theme!

Wish they alternated and gave us some swarm chrome steels :sob:

Not a bad twig though, be interesting to see how good (or bad) the team crystal weapon set looks.

Oh yes, I’m going to love spending full price for a weapon set where I’m only missing four skins because they never got put out properly…

Well, then again, they were selling it ridiculously overpriced back then as well. Just a shame I still am sitting on this.

Damn, that looks like the equivalent of holding a penny stock in hopes that it will one day raise again.

Those Heroic Team Crystal skins look much nicer.

Compared to the Heroic Ascendant ones, it kinda reminds me of a child’s artwork at different stages of completion - the Ascendant ones are like an uncomplete one where they’ve drawn it and started some of the colouring; and the Crystal ones is the completed version ready to be displayed on the wall.

I don’t expect to be able to get rid of all that. Though to be perfectly clear, some of that Iron is also from Tours and cause I had gotten the Op 2 bundle for its weapon skins.

Next time TC should just do straight up money only purchases for their paid items. I don’t even have an use for all that Iron except Boost which is effectively worthless to me at the moment too.

Now they’re nice :sunglasses:

Proper stand out skin that shame I’m poor after buying random ■■■■ :rofl:

I mean at least they will be a permanent addition to the store, but 100k for 1 skin and a weapon skin set? That’s pretty hefty even if it is permanent, plus more are going to be added

Still no Winter armor Marcus.

Maybe scrapping is the big suprise for OP6. 100k would be nothing then.

I’m still hoping that TC just threw that curveball about it (scrapping excess skill cards) not being on their agenda, and it turns out they were tricking us to throw us off the trail. I mean, they previously said that they were working on it. Not even “we will be working on it soon” - but the wording was that they had actually started on working on it.

Other than Omega Squad Dom and the CS weapon skins, everything else is kinda disappointing. We just got the CS Hivebuster skins not too long ago, why not bring back older CS skins like Baird and Ben?

Or you know, just give us all of the old CS skins but y’know y’all love to dripfeed…
