Cheats, Tips & Secrets for Gears of War 3 on Xbox 360

Set the game mode to Horde and without any Mutators. Shoot the generator controlling three light spots. Kryll will begin to appear at three location. Go to one of three locations and look for a sword used by RAAM. When you find it, press X to take it. Note: When you grab the sword you will hear RAAM scream. Do this two more times and a sword should appear next to the sniper rifle just outside of the Kryll location (not where the Kryll are located, because the sword you find there spawns in that location). After you collect that final sword, your character will fall to the ground and a group of Kryll will circle around him. Your character will float, and a Vulcan will appear for everyone in the team.

Play a match with at least two round wins required to finish a match, and complete a round without anyone destroying any of the ash people inside the multi-player map. At the start of the next round, an instrumental piano version of "Mad World" will play.

While performing the Retro Charge or Chainsaw Bayonet execution, you are unaffected by any damage in Horde. Note: In Hardcore and Insane, enemies such as the Boomer and Kantus will wait until you finish the execution to fire at you. Also, when using the Mutator "Comet", you are invincible while roadie running.

Use the following trick to kill the regular berserkers that appear in the Boss waves in Horde mode. Pick up a Scorcher (the flame thrower) and blaze them up. Note: These are not to be confused with the Lambent berserker.

Complete the following achievements to unlock Xbox Live Gamerscore points.


Go to Versus mode and choose a private match. Set the bots number to the maximum. Make sure the score limit is maxed out so that you have the most possible time in a match. Also, set the difficulty to Casual. You can now work on whatever medal you are trying to achieve. Also, when choosing a level, you can switch out which weapons you want. For example, if you change them all to Torque Bows you can use that the entire match until you have enough kills with it to unlock its execution. You can keep switching the guns desired before you start a new match and work with them to actually unlock all the executions. Note: The only weapon you cannot choose is the cleaver; for this, go to Horde mode and choose Drydock. Tthe Butchers will appear on level 2, and from there you can pick up their cleaver and use it until you have unlocked its execution. By using this method you can unlock many medals.

Select the Insane difficulty setting. Complete Act 1 without touching any of the ash bodies to earn the "Respect For The Dead" achievement after you arrive at Griffin's hideout and enter his hidden weapon cache. You will now have access to a little chicken wearing a pirate hat to the right. Press X to on the chicken to make it explode. Play Act 4 Chapter 2 and find the two special ammo boxes that fall off the cliff as you approach them. The first box is at the beginning of the Act, on top of a car. The second box is at the end of a railroad track in the underground section where you are attacked by Polyps. Reach Act 4 Chapter 3 and move past the lift. Go through the barbed wire to encounter a group of Formers. Kill them all out and search for a stack of objects with another ammo box on top of it. Kick the stack to get the box to fall off. After a moment you will get a CluckShot weapon for each of your teammembers. This weapon is a a Boom Shot that shoots exploding chickens.

Use the following trick to have all characters wear Dom's beard. Start a new game under the Insane difficulty setting. Remain close to Dom when the flashback begins. Note: Though you may need to walk away from him briefly to get him to move. If done correctly, he will say "Yo". Remain near Dom during the entire flashback. Note: You can still fight the Locust as long as your remain close to Dom. If done correctly, when the flashback ends everyone will have Dom's beard for the rest of the game.
