Gears of War 3 Weapons Guide: Best Weapons For Single Player And Multiplayer

With so many Gears of War 3 weapons to choose from in single player and multiplayer mode, how can a player decide which are the best? G4's Gears 3 best weapons guide is your answer. Learn the pros and cons of each weapon from the famous Lancer to the new One-Shot. We have it all, including videos that demonstrates each weapon with great advice to improve your Gear of War 3 online experiences. For more information, including the descriptions for all the weapons, check out Adam Rosenberg's GoW3 campaign and weapons guide.


Gears of War 3 Lancer Demonstration Video »


The Lancer is a fully automatic rifle, delivering a surprisingly high level of accuracy (even at range) with a good amount of damage. The Lancer's ammo and clip capacity both are the highest of the standard machine guns. Plus, it's got that chainsaw, for awesomely brutal close-range executions.

The Lancer is not the most powerful rifle in Gears 3's multiplayer, and it takes almost a full clip of bullet to put down your opponent, but with a high rate of fire and high accuracy, it can keep enemies at a distance. A simple tip to learn is whenever you are going to use the Lancer's chainsaw for close combat, hold down the B button and tap like crazy. You never know if your opponent is planning to do the same thing, and most likely you'll enter into a chainsaw duel. Play it safe, I say.

Gears of War 3: Your Guide To The Campaign

Looking for a Gears of War 3 campaign guide to get you started? Look no further. The story-based campaign in Gears of War 3 is one of the most elaborate yet, digging into the histories of major characters not named Marcus Fenix as the trilogy that first started in 2007 comes to a close. Epic Games' Cliff Bleszienski spoke of a "bigger, better and more badass" game when Gears 2 came out, and Gears 3 seems to adopt a similar approach.

The scale is bigger. The stakes are higher. The weapons are more numerous. The bosses are bigger and more numerous. Hell, there's even a whole new type of enemy to contend with. I've spent most of the past week pouring so many hours into Gears 3 that it has quite literally started to haunt my dreams (this is not a joke). All that time has left me with some inights that I'd like to share, tips that will help day one players quickly acclimate to the latest release in the Gears of War series.

NOTE: I'm going to try to keep the below discussion as spoiler-free as possible, but those who want to remain completely pure and in the clear should proceed with caution.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Augmentations Guide, Best Upgrades For Stealth, Combat, And Hacking

In Deus Ex: Human Revolution, players can upgrade their augmentations to enhance Adam Jenson's special abilities, such as increased defense, invisibility, toxic resistance, improve combat and many more. Players can obtain these augmentation in two ways; The first way is to obtain enough XP to level up and the second way is to find Praxis Kits throughout the game world of Deus Ex. You start off automatically with a couple of augmentations, and can upgrade when available.

Once you have your augmentations, some need to be activated in order to take effect; for example, the Cloaking System. Active augmentations draw on the player's reserved battery energy at specific rates. With a range of augmentations, some players don't know which ability to upgrade first. However, G4tv has created a helpful Deus Ex: Human Revolution augmentations guide to improve your chance of survival.
