Recently on the Epic forums, @Raczilla asked Epic Gamers to post their questions about Gears of War 3. The response has been great, and over the next few months, we’ll try to get some of the questions answered. While we can’t answer them all, we’ll try to get a good cross section of questions answered.
Q: Can you earn the achievements and the weapon skins Ivory and Fl4k in private matches?
A: There are some achievements and skins in Forces of Nature you will not be able to unlock because there is no private guardian. If you see someone with these achievements and skins, you will know they did not get them from playing against bots.
Q: Why do some have issues with the consistency of the mantle kick?
A: We have found this is most prevalent when there are internet connection issues. We are continuing to investigate and collect data.
Q: Why can’t I unlock the “We Few, We Happy Few” achievement?
A: If you are having trouble unlocking any achievements, please post in the Gears of War 3 Issues forum so we can check into it.
Q: Why aren’t all of the medals available across all game modes?
A: By design, each gametype has its own medals. If you see someone with the Onyx Lancer Skin you will know they received it by getting 6,000 kills in multiplayer. That is quite an achievement. Commitment is rewarded.
Q: Are there any plans to change the way the medals work?
A: There are no plans to change the way the medals are distributed.
