Well this week's "event" is sh*t. x5 XP on Execution (which along with Wingman is the worst game type in the game) and "creepy crawlies" on Horde which means laods of bloody Tickers, Cerepides and those bloody annoying crab things... not sure I can be bothered to try and get to 98, let along re-up with those "goodies" :(

It's only 5x XP for actual executions too, normal XP applies for the Execution gametype itself.

Oh, have I read that wrong? Executions across all game types or just during Execution? If it's all game types, chainsaw here I come :)


Thank god for the new Tomb Raider, helped me de-stress after a tough week! More of the same please

You only get 5x XP for Executions in the Execution gametype, kills and win bonuses remain at standard XP, that's what I read before the event started at least.  :)

Oh well, better stick to Guardian then, I'm half way through level 97 now but am quite busy today so might have to try and get to 98 tomorrow. Horde is awful, I played it with some randoms on public yesterday night and we just about managed to get to wave 10, but when you're faced with 2 beserkers, 3 corpsers, 3 ceripedes and god knows how many tickers all at once it was just too difficult. Thanks Epic!!!

Finally reached level 98, 2 more to go for the re-up achievement and then I'm going to put Gears 3 to bed for a little while as I'm getting a bit bored.

I'll help with the Beast ones today if you want Sambo, I'm not playing Horde anymore this weekend as the "Creepy Crawlies" event sucks but I can help later in the week or next weekend with the Horde ones.
