Basic Intro to Gears of War 3 Default Weapons

[002557]There are many weapons in Gears of War 3, and each requires a unique approach to use effectively. Guns are varied so that a certain balance is achieved where there is a gun for virtually any situation and range, but not too many that apply to any one situation. This mechanic makes it so no single gun stands too far above the others of comparable power and makes game play more based on the player’s individual skill with the gun they’ve chosen. Someone who’s bad with a Hammerburst rifle can get gunned down at range by someone who’s an expert with the Retro Lancer. Since the game has so many weapons, I’m going to focus on the primary weapons you start with as they are the guns most heavily relied upon. I’ll deal with map-placed weaponry next issue.
