Midnight Madness Bonus
Rod Confirms that for Gears of War 3, there will be No Midnight Madness Bonus
@GearsViking Can we get a final word (yes or no) on a Midnight Madness bonus?

@LegendaryMarvel @raczilla @iFlak @EpicCog correct, no MM exclusive.
Epic Edition/Limited Edition
Rod Fergusson has confirmed that the Limited Edition/ Epic Edition of Gears of War 3 are “truly limited” so order it whilst you can!
@GearsVikiing Amazon has run out of limited editions of gears 3 and I wanted to know if you will be shipping them more copies soon
@SkullKruncher55 unlikely, like the Epic Edition, they’re truly limited
Onyx Weapon Skin Unlock
Rod Fergusson confirms to unlock the Onyx Weapon skin, you must play multiplayer only.(excluding campaign, horde and beast mode)
@GearsViking Rod, quick question. Do the kills put toward to Onyx skins apply on in multiplayer or all game types?
@BlackZabest I’ve asked to be sure and they say MP only.

Rod Fergusson confirms Armoured Kantus will only be playable in Beast mode.
@GearsViking Will armored Kantus be a multiplayer character?
@JayCodyLegit only in Beast
Microsoft Green Weapon Skins
More information on the Microsoft Green skins below
@raczilla @xCherLeighx @iFlak @GearsViking please give me some glimmer of hope that the M$ green skins are NOT tied to a midnight release
@Popogeejoe @raczilla @xCherLeighx @iFlak they are not
@GearsViking the liquid green skins aren’t unlock able in game?
@j_clem no they’re part of a special promotion that hasn’t been announced yet
@GearsViking similar to the liquid metal skins? As in will they cost $$?
@j_clem no, it’s part of a marketing promotion
@GearsViking could we see this announcements made on the Friday stream??
@j_clem no, it will have a bigger announce than that
@GearsViking you said it was a promotion we haven’t heard of yet. So does that mean it can’t be the Walls of Brotherhood thing? (31 Aug)
News on DLC in November
Bernie and Onyx Guard are a few of the characters available in DLC 1 coming in November.
Locked Skins/Season Pass Skins Information
@GearsViking So will all these skins come with the Season Pass, or will it be purchased seperate?
@MLGTrad3Mark separate but will have bulk discounts. DLC will have other skins
@GearsViking so now we know why you didn’t want gold codes on ebay U wanted a piece of that market too huh? Making us all pay for std skins
@AntiRetaliation no, no such thing as standard skins. We give a bunch for unlocks and the rest are optional
@GearsViking Okay, I give in, can we at least buy all these locked skins on Day 1 or do we have to wait? I think it’s silly we have to …
@beshorom you’ll be able to get them all on day 1 at a bulk discounted price
