Meet the Booska–The Gears of War Noobtube

1 min read


Possibly the most irritating aspect of the old Modern Warfare 3 title was the noobtube, or to give it the real name, the grenade launcher.

It got its nickname from new players with very little skill simply using it to randomly fire explosives all over the map and taking the free kills as they came. It took very little skill to use and really got in the way of the planned tactics and skills of the more advanced players.

Over the years it has been toned down in the Call of Duty series and now appears to have found a new home in the upcoming Gears of War: Judgement title.

Whether this ends up being a nice new addition to the series or turns into the noobtube of Gears is still unknown.

Oh and while we have you here why not take a trip around one of the new maps coming to Gears of War: Judgement.

Gondola takes place on a mountainside village which really plays of the verticality of the new series.

Gears of War: Judgement is coming to the Xbox 360 on the 21st of March and as an extra bonus the price isn’t eye watering.
