Unlike some of us here at Lazygamer I am a big fan of CliffyB (check our interview here), yeah he’s arrogant and obnoxious but he’s also an incredible gaming visionary and has put together some of the most memorable games of our time.

Whether you hate him or not doesn’t really change that and with the Gears of War 3 beta now really starting to pick up speed he is even more important. So I decided to go back over his tweets from the last couple of days and pick up some Gears of War 3 tips and tricks that you may not have figured out yet.

You’re going to want to read these because some of them could save your life, or at least take that scumbag who just stuck a chainsaw in your back with you.

  1. The Digger does in fact go NomNomNom when it’s on its way.
  2. Lighter guns do not make you run faster, heavy weapons however will make you move slower. So don’t change to the pistol for that big run, it won’t help
  3. If you are armed with grenades and you get stabbed or chainsawed you can hit RT to detonate them and take the guy with you.
  4. In Checkout that annoying alarm that you sometimes hear is when a secret weapon has been spawned.

And then some other tips that have come in via different sources

  1. Don’t get to stuck on the shotgun as the rifles power has also been increased and are great at medium distance.
  2. Press A to leap over a small wall and kick the player on the other side.
  3. You can kill the chickens that you see running around, not sure why though
  4. Don’t forget that the environment is partially destructible, so you can still get that guy hiding behind the concrete pillar.
  5. A charging retro lancer can be stopped… just kill him before he gets to you
  6. In Checkout if you can hold the raised area across from the Mulcher you can dominate the stage.
  7. Use the left stick to spot players for your team mates (push it down)
  8. The Hammerburst has iron sights, push the right stick down
  9. Hold down the left bumper to see an outline of your team mates through the walls
  10. Hold X to reload, tap it to revive someone.
  11. And seriously people, aim for the head.

That’s it for the tips that I have seen so far, if you have any please leave them in the comments and I’ll try collate them.

Oh and if you were wondering how many ribbons you can receive at the end of the game, well here’s your list thanks to GOWPortal
