Hey all, name's Roscoe. ^-^

I got Gears 2 back when it came out, but just now decided to join a forum. I'm lazy like that. Anyway, my GT is Firelordroscoe and I play Halo 3 and Gears 2(obviously).

I found out about the forum while reading Gearspedia, and will probably be spending alot of time here. ^-^

Figured I'd just add to this thread instead of starting a new one.

Just got the game for Christmas and am loving it. Haven’t had a lot of time to play though.

Anyone have any tips for a beginner? What’s the best way to practice? Multiplayer? Campaign mode? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Hey welcome man =) courteous of you to avoid starting another thread! Definitely play through campaign using as many power weapons as you can (I mean, try to avoid Lancer, Hammerburst, Shotgun) so you get your practice in with how those weapons work instead of having to learn in Multiplayer. Yeah it's a different game online, but at least you'll know exactly how long you have to fire that Torque arrow, how long that Sniper reload takes so you can active without even thinking, etc. etc.

Speaking of reloading, always always always active your shots. ESPECIALLY with the sniper. Sometimes you'll fire right at their face but the shot won't register. This sucks, but you can avoid it by getting that active. This isn't just my opinion, 'o Like Butter o' has done a lot of documented practice with this (If you haven't heard of him, he was regarded as the best/one of the best snipers in Gears of War). He's got videos on YouTube if you've got some spare time.

I digress. If you find you're becoming partial to the Hammerburst rather than the Lancer, I've written a guide for using it in the Multiplayer board. If you find you'd rather be using the Lancer, then I suggest you practice mashing the B button as fast as you can [tongue.gif].

Anyway, welcome to the forums man, stay active and post a lot!

Nice! Thanks for all the tips. I guess I'll just keep at the campaign mode and get us much work in as I can. I'm still early on in the game so I don't even think I've come across any of the better weapons.

Just curious - why should the shotgun be avoided? Or did you mean it should only be used in up-close combat?

Thanks again [cool.gif]

I meant it as inclusive with the Lancer/Hammerburst to get more practice with the power weapons, but hey if you feel like you need some more work with any of the weapons, Campaign is the place to do it. =)
