I'm stuck on Wave 50 on Underhill for my Icy Dead People, it's just too hard on my lonesome.

Anyone else need the 1-50? i need it on Nowhere.

I still need waves 46-50.  I'll send you invite when I see you online.   :)

Depending on what is going on later today, I might manage to make it online to play gears.  However, I need all 50 waves so I doubt I'd be much help.

I'll go through all 50 waves for whatever map you're needing.  I'm in for the XP!   8)

I'm also needing a few horde cheevos.  I'll post in the co-op board to gather the troops.

The All-Fronts Collection has been (permanently?) discounted to 400MSP.

Epic is a little late if you ask me.  They would have probably made more money if they dropped the price at the beginning of the XP event ... but what do I know.   :P



ps.  The 25XP has started early!  Now - 19th

Depending on the map, yeah. I've found a few that work well (Security / Hail / and Under Hill) which have spots for you to bunker down in. That strategy is sort of a drag though, 'cause Tickers sometimes get stuck in some spots or take a while to show up. I timed Hail (Wave 10) at almost 13 mins., not really worth the effort when trying to level up.

If you're trying for an achievement (Complete X amount of waves), it's totally do-able (especially if not playing on "Insane"), just time consuming.

BTW- in all circumstances the shield is your best friend in SP Horde with Tickers. ;)

Anyone still needing their wings should blast Gears 2 for the next week, currently running 20x XP to celebrate Gears of War's birthday.   :)

Nice.  Thanks for the info.  If I can find the time and a good boosting match I will try to finally earn my wings.

Awesome.  I already got mine, but great for those that haven't.

Just another excuse to play Gears!!
The Quinny magic carpet ride may have landed but the Red Flag will keep on flying high.

Saw this mentioned on Reddit this morning with the person that posted it hoping it gets a One X update like Gears 3. Gears 2 is still my favourite in the series so a One X update would be great, still hoping for a remaster later this year for it's 10th anniversary.
