This will be good news to many. This quote from Pete Knepley, senior gameplay programmer at Epic, via Facebook.

"After hearing your feedback, we have reduced the gib range of the Sawed Off Shotgun in Gears of War 3 and it no longer gibs farther than the gnasher, effective today. We want to thank you for your helping us to make Gears of War 3 the best of the series."

Sorry if this has been posted. Either way... cheers

Good. I think they should just make the sawed-off a non(can't think of the word right now)spawnable weapon.

yeah, it totally should be a map based weapon but i definitely don't see them doing that. after the beta would have been the perfect chance but they missed it.

Hopefully it can down people now instead just outside the gnasher gib range. I mean it is 2 shotgun barrels going off at the same time. Because if it doesn't then it has no benefit over the gnasher. And I don't want this turning into Gnashers of War 3

Good good.. Gnashers of War is what made the game, Sawed-Off scrubs actually have to get good at the damn game now.

I think the best thing about this is not the actual nerf, but the fact that it proves that Epic are at least listening to the fans for a change.

Now give us a sniper load-out damnit!

SOS doesnt seem any different to me imo. still kills multiple guys in one blast and its still uber rare to down someone with it... range may be lessened but from what i can tell its still just as good or scrubby or OP or whatever youd lilke to call it
