As we mentioned previously, not only will participating in the Gears of War 3 Beta give you an early preview of the game, but it will also afford you the opportunity of unlocking several special items that can only be unlocked in the beta. We’ve revealed a couple of them already, but now we’re back with the complete list.
Without further adieu…
Beta Tester Medal – Simply participating in a single match of the beta will unlock this medal. In the full game, it will be displayed in the Gears 3 multiplayer lobby to let everyone know that you helped beta test.
Thrashball Cole – To unlock the Thrashball Cole skin, simply play 50 matches in the beta. Once you’ve unlocked the skin, play 10 more matches using the skin to have it carry over to the full game. If you do not play these 10 additional matches, you’ll lose the skin when the beta ends.
Gold Retro Lancer – Similar to the Cole skin, you unlock the Gold Retro lancer by playing 90 matches in the beta. Once unlocked, you must then get 100 kills using the Gold Retro Lancer to have it carry over to the full game. If you do not get 100 kills with it, you’ll lose it when the beta ends.
Flaming Hammerburst – To unlock the flaming Hammerburst, simply play and complete one Gears 3 beta match by April 24th. This means you can only unlock the Flaming Hammerburst if you got early entry to the beta by purchasing Bulletstorm.
Flaming Lancer – To unlock the flaming Lancer, simply play and complete one Gears 3 beta match between April 25th and May 1st.
Flaming Sawed-Off Shotty- Complete one match between May 2nd and May 8th
Flaming Gnasher Shotty – Complete one match between May 9th and May 15th
