New Poll - Favorite Gears of War weapon

Everybody's got a favorite weapon in Gears of War. What's yours? It might not be the weapon you're best at, but the weapon you enjoy using the most . . . even if you kill yourself in the process when you do. Not that I have any friends who do that mind you, I'm just saying. :)

Now you ould not be speaking of me and the boomshot would you??? The longshot is my fav. for me. Its not my best but I wish. There is no better feeling than a active reload knockdown with it or better yet a headshot. I have much better rsults with a torque, grenade or a boom shot (at least i take myself out as well so it kind of counts as a kill).

Whenever I use the longshot someone always sneaks up behind me, taps me on the shoulder then blows my head off. The weapon I wish I knew how to use effectively is the Torque bow. But since Weasell always gets it first I'll probably never learn.

We have to set up a private room sometime , you host and set up the weapons of choice ( the torque) and you can have the head start. Also just tell the old Weasell you would like to use it. If not I will team kill him for you :)

Can you imagine a room with nothing but Torque Bows? They'll be things flying all over the place....body parts included.

He'll let me have it if I ask but I'm so ineffectual with it my team doesn't stand a chance of winning if I pick it up (same with Longshot) and isn't it all about winning anyway?

In a ranked match its about 2 things . First its about yourself. Can you get the 100 weapon ach.,can you get a overall rank that gets better each week. Player matches for me are where I spend time with good people ( well most are but not ZAk! :) ) . I think thats the time with friends that you can explore weapons that you need more work with.

um "max"? . . . "player matches with good people"? And yet you cuss us out every time we kill you?

And c5: sometimes my only objective in the game is to keep you away from the Longshot . . . whatever the cost. Doesn't always work but as long as I don't have to worry about you popping my head off in near impossilbe shots at least I have a chance to last more than 5 seconds. Love playing with ya though!

Yes , I know I use "colorful" words in the heat of Gears. I have always said it is the only game I cant "relax" and play.Am I serious about what I say when I die or say the players name who killed me? Name one player that does not complain about the flaws of the game when they die or cuss someone out or give the host a bad time.( I just dont turn my mic off).Heck , nights Im host I hear it so often I cant keep count. I have the , well I should not say it , honor of being host almost all the time. I dont want to be but most no one wants to or there connection is not good enough to support it. When the very few times Im not the host and I experience what I have in the past ,the get killed by a shot gun thats not pointed at you or the grenade tags that you are far from you, I say what I hear everynight from everyone else we play with. This is just facts. The "good people" thing well??? :(

HA!!! Use the sniper more Pengwenn. You will get good with it, and it's really fun to use. Dennis, I and everyone else knows you don't really mean what's said. We're all friends here, frustration is unavoidable sometimes and you have to vent a little. So if a random f bomb comes from me directed toward any one of our friends in our room is not meant as personal. Call it Gears banter.

Considering you're usually laughing when you cuss (as we all do most of the time) I know you don't mean it. Watching what's going down as a spectator and then hearing "Zak, you little prick" as you die . . . and knowing Zak is probably laughing about it, is quite funny you have to admit.

Now if you were cussing people out because they cost you the game or a kill (like I usually get in Call of Duty 4) and you were angry that's another thing. But you don't because you're a gentleman (cussing included) and a good friends.

Who doesn't drop f. bombs on Gears. Its expected especially hearing Weasel famous saying " F. off". The game does it to us, but that's what makes it fun, its so unexpected. I hope no one takes it to heart. Except for Max, I always mean to shot his head off, everyone else, its just a fluke. I still need more practice with the longshot.

I think I might have to host an all sniper room tonight. Or I could really piss everyone off and make it an all Hammer of Dawn room. :) hee hee

Pengween, you should bring back the hammer of dawn. That would be very funny. Twinkie should enjoy it. :)
