I've got Cole Train so I'm happy. The only other thing I want to make sure I get is the gold retro-lancer. Should have it done within the time frame!

Steal kills like i did, or go on King of the Hill and shoot anything that moves. You can get the kills in no time. Easier and quicker than getting the matches complete.

Just got 33 kills with the Gold Retro Lancer in a couple of hours. As Cube says, CHAAARRRGE!

 

I hate this weapon, though it is piss funny to charge people, especially with the grunts that the Locust make when doing it. :D

Well looks like i might be able to unlock the gold retro lancer for retail after all!

 

Just got to 90 matches and then played a match of king of the hill and i finished with 25 kills. If i can keep that up i should have it done before the beta is over! :)

I'm on 70 kills with it so far. Loving it. I went back to the normal Lancer during a game where I ran out of ammo for my Retro, and just could not shoot it. I was trying to correct for recoil that didn't exist! :(

You should get it done tonight, or tomorrow.

I got it earlier.

 

But having said that, I'll never use it. I prefer the hammerburst

Got a code from Cube, thank you :D I'm sure other forumites would be interested though.

One thing I like about the gold lancer is that it isn't ridiculously shiny. In GoW2 (and most games with unlockables like that) the gold weapons looked stupidly out of place.

 

Same with the flaming weapons.

I do prefer the Gold Lancer this time around, because it does look like Gold. Unlike in Gears 2, that was a bit OTT really.

 

I can offer a code as well, as i too was sent one. As long as my mate doesn't want it, it can be anyones.

For some reason, I've not received any codes, even though by rights I should get 4 or 5 :/

Think the dedicated servers are suffering today. Everything worked fine until I assume thousands more joined the beta and now I keep getting host disconnected messages and it's laggy as Gears 2 at times.

 

Hope this isn't a sign of things to come, or that the reason they handed out a load of extra codes is to see if the servers can cope which they apparently can't and they'll have it sorted by launch day.

They've been stress testing by turning off dedicated servers. Presumably it's that.

No achievement for killing chickens? Fail.

 

I was half expecting an achievement for that as well, or for wiping all the fruits and veg off the stalls in Old Town. And half expecting an achievement for setting the alarm off as well.

 

I'll let you know if the code is still available around 9pm (ish).

Ugh the lag and disconnects is ridiculous. It's been messing up my stats so even though I've now played 90 matches, it only says 84!

Am I wrong in thinking that if I buy a gears of war avatar item, I'll get an extra code to give out? ::shrug:

You only got a code if you did something before a set date which i believe has passed.

I have never been good at gears online either on 1 or 2 although i seem to be doing better in this! Most of my kills to come from the retro lancer now though!
