Gearsmas is back to bring all of that festive holiday spirit to Gears of War 4 this Friday. The Coalition announced that this will be the biggest Gearsmas event in history, and it runs from December 15-January 2.
The first ever ‘Horde Madness’ variant is here and will be called Jingle Juvies. This event tasks you and your squad with taking on a 25 wave horde of Juvies adorned with antlers. You’ll also need to fend off Juvies supported by Trackers outside of boss waves. They’ll be Gears of Wars’ very own vicious reindeer. Completing specific challenges will also net you weapon skins.
Snowball Fight, the Team Deathmatch variant, is back this year with a special Holiday ‘Snowshot’ (a Boomshot that fires snowballs). Splash damage has been removed entirely so you’ll need to be more precise in order to get the kill. You are also eligible for a couple of weapon skins by completing specific objectives in this event as well.
A Gearsmas 2017 holiday pack will also be available for 400 credits. It includes:
Gearsmas Sweater Imago
Gearsmas Sweater Dizzy
Festive Tree DR1
- WEAPON SKINS
