PostSubject: Being thrashed - please help!   Sun Oct 16, 2011 9:10 am

Hello,

I initially thought I was pretty good at Gears 3 as I leveled up pretty quickly after finishing the game and discovering verses mode. The problem I now face is that clearly I am not as great as once thought and the other players seem like they are in another league. Can anyone give me some general ideas on playing styles, possible tactics and ways to handle weapons please as now getting a little tired of the whooping.

My normal weapon is Retro Lancer but I am not sure if thats the best one for medium to long range which is my current style. The shot guns are just not for me and I cant currently handle them.

What do you think?

Cheers

Normal Lancer is best for Medium-Long Range. Retro is only good really for Short-Medium and to be shot in bursts.

Great for Long-Range. Not so great for Short-Medium. Unless you got a modded controller or a fast trigger finger.

Tactics:
* If your sorry SOB at aiming, use the Sawed-Off and Retro Lancer
* Don't rush.
* Try to keep with the majority of your team
* Try not to use guns your not good with, stick with what you know.
* Communication with your team is key.
* Don't take a power weapon your not good with. You just hurt your team and yourself
* To get better with your shotgun, simply play horde and try to focus just on using it and do trick shots and such on the bots. Once you get down the harder shots the easier shots are like nothing. Helped me! That's how I got good with shotgun in Gears 2. lol

As wookiee said, only use guns you're comfortable with and don't run off into dangerous areas yourself.
One other thing, you need to be able to recognise if the enemy you're
going for is equipped with the sawed-off, always helps when you what shotgun they use.

Shotguns aren't the most dangerous thing. Just don't let 'em get close.

The majority of online players only really use a shotgun.

Shotguns can't shoot you outta cover like a boomshot. Just sayin'.
