You can kill the the corpser super easy all you do is shot the soft belly and when it screams unload a few rounds and it will move back. Continue to repeat this until you get it to go on the platform. Then you will see the smashable clamps and all you do is stand on it and when it attacks roll out of the way. Wretches will come use your shotgun to melee them. Go Get 'em!!!
This is an easy and very quick way to kill a berserker:
. Hammer Of Dawn her ass
. Then grenade tag it
. Stand back
Voila! One dead berserker.
This works because the HOD temporarily weakens her armor, meaning bullets and explosions can harm her and grenade tag means instant death for any enemy on any difficulty with the exception of bosses
(Seeders Corsper and General RAAM)
When you get to the weps. Before you open the door(if you don't already have it)grab a shotgun and a lancer.After the cutscene,take cover behind the first cement block you see.Order Dom to cease fire and wait for the Kryle to leave RAAM.At that point,shoot RAAM with the lancer until the Kryle come back.Repeat this until he is in the middle of the square in front of you.Then order Dom to attack.This should make RAAM turn the other way.When Dom gets in the square tell him to take cover.At this point,blindfire RAAM until you kill him.
This is pretty simple concept, to distract the beserker away from you or Dom just blind throw grenade away from you in a spot that will buy you time to position yourself so you can defeat her.
Best place to snipe in clock tower!!!!
PS. You will have to be able do the Kung Fu Flip to do this.
When you start out the game you would want to go where the boom shoot is located. When you jump over the cover to get to it you will want to go to the right side. Then take cove and do the Kung Fu Flip. If done the flip right you will want to move to the right in the air. If you land on the ledge of the bridge you will want to run to the bushes on the hill. When you pass the bushes you will be protected behind the bushes and will also be able to move around and snipe your opponent.

On gridlock do crab walk on thegarden walls and then go to the oposite side and roll inbetween the middle wall block and the little square box and then you fly black over the stairs and should hover on top of one of the plant pot you crab walked on !!!

Do the Torque bow and Sniper Rifle routine. But only this time when he gets close to you... Just Grenade Tag him! It should work
Ok... Its just you and your enemy back to back on the same jump-able object. If he stands up rev your chainsaw while facing him (standing up) and he'll be chopped up.

(NOTE HE HAS A KRLLY SHIELD SO WAIT FOR HIM TO SEND HIS KRYLL AFTER YOU) LIVE GAMERTAG IS gamer7520
Demonsbayne here! Having trouble with RAAM? Well allow me to help you on all three difficulties! And yes... on Insane it WILL suck.
Grab a Torque Bow and a longshot and head outside. A fully charged Torque Bow shot will get the Kryll off RAAM, then use the longshot, aim at his ugly head, and fire, you definatly should be able to pull this off without getting killed, especially since it's on casual. If he gets to close, then make a run for the long block on the other cart in from of you, but be carefull of the kryll, there may not be much light, but you should make it if you run.
Still grab the Torque Bow, but now you have a choice. If you are quick at headshots, then still use the longshot, if not, use a lancer. I suggest the lancer for it's fi..

Now as we all know, we tend to die alot in a multiplayer match but there is two ways you can survive better, now if you want the kills then arm yourself with a shotgun and maybe waste some rounds so you got one bullet left so you can get active as that will blow a hole in the opponent easyier, or if you want to eliminate opponets without being blown quick then ask fopr some backup from you're team.
Have Fun and remember Delta X are happy to help
GAMERTAG GAME T 5
get a shotgun out. aim for the legs. it should down the person in 2-4 shots.
For the Zen and the art of reloading achievements, simply fire your wepon once and reload, then try to get a perfect active reload, this can be slighty easier with a pistol, because it has a slighty larger perfect reload bar. Repeat this until you unlock Part I and Part II of the achievment.
First I am going to teach you the sky dive
Go to gridlock
Go to a pickup truck with your friend
Then get your friend on the truck half way so his feet are sticking out
After get close to him and touch him the make him move and get on your sie then go to his side.
Next go on the truck so now your hanging on nothing then run pretty much run on nothing but don't get off the truck.
Now just keep running for 3min and then do a backroll back an youll flip into the air and then land on the building an have fun
Now the Crabwalk
First get one the wall next to another one then look left untill you see the icon to move over.
Then press down a really fast an your guy should be moving weirdly
Dont go back to the wall you did or you..
There Are Thirty Cog Tags And They are hard to find but to make it abit easy look for a red gear logo pasted on the wall if u find a large room with that logo u bound to find a cog tag in there
(First thing is that this is under cheat becuase theres not a glitch section but bare with me) In gears of war there is all sorts of things to take cover on and to do this glitch it as to be a sertin kind of cover. It's the hurtle cover this is something you can jump over. (sadly to say this is only to people who have xbox live)(the best way to do this glitch is to have the snub pistol out and be looking down on your charecter, this helps get you higher in the air) When you are in cover and when you press up on the left stick you should see a symbol come up on the screen it's to jump over the oblect but when you see this press back on the left stick and if you start levatating (hovering) backward press (all at the same time) Back on the left stick and A, B. If you do it corectlly your gu..
The Easiest Way to Kill General Raam Is To Torgue Him If u Succesfully Torque him about 12 times u will easily kill him ofcourse it does require u to have torque skills or if ur not that good then do it on Split Screen with a friend or online.
To do this, you need to be in cover against something that you can jump over,take out any weapon apart from the lancer or granades, now position the camera above your head, hold foward and quickly pull back and tap A (need to be very quick), if you do this right your guy should start to float upwards but it'll only be for a second or so, when floating hold back and tap A and B at the same time ... Can only be done on live when not hosting.
Just for those who didn't know, you can do a player match with some friends to get these achievements, it doesnt need to be on ranked..
This is a funny little glitch that my friend provided me with -
Guns go through character (only your screen)
Stand over any weapon press RT,LT, left or right on the d pad, and X. If done correctly, you should be holding nothing, then switch to the gun you just picked up (and should be holding), when you start moving you will notice that it passes through you, it stops if you aim or switch weapon.
Invisible character (only your screen)
Equip a sniper rifle, press B, LT and click the right thumbstick at the same time and you shoud become completely invisible with only your guns.
If you see the Gears of War symbol (the red skull with the red gear around it) then a COG Tag is nearby. After I found this out, I quickly found about twenty of them when I played on insane, but the other ten must be hidden really good.
to do rodie walk: (on any level, but gridlock is best for first try) when u are at spawn point keep to the brick wall(left or right)and you will see blocks by block, which pass that is the sniper spot, before there, and after spawn point, stand where you can swat jump(where you swicth sides) and prees where you are going to jump, but before you jump, move back, so its like this:go where your going,A, a (very quick) move back.(< or > A, quick let go of < or > and move back) if u do it right when you are runing also are shakeing. to stop click B, or jump, or hold A when you run. (dont do it in rank maps, or ask host first before doing rodie run or any other "thing"). have fun
Ok I think you might have to be locust for this one but find the vehicle blocking the entrance to bullet marsh and then turn around and stay straight when you get to a place with three barrels on the left side of the wall and a little further up there are three barrels on the right side of the wall from here get out your shotgun and run at the corner of the barrels and when your guy starts to twitch do the frontward roll and youll get on top of a wall and then just head staright to get out of the level. Don't try this on xbox live or I will pick a random person from the apposing team to give the kill to. OK HAVE FUN.
This cheat/glitch still works after the "annex" update and only on xbox live when not hosting. To do this, take cover against any wall that you can swat roll (roll from 1 wall to another). Get ready to swat roll but a split second before you tap A, push the analog stick back, (may take a few tries, works in pretty much any map in most places), your guy should now appear to be standing but is shaking, congrats you've done it! Just don't go near the wall you were supposed to get to. WARNING- do not do on ranked games as you may get banned.
Look For The Gears Of War Logo
(Red Skull In A Red Gear)
There Will Be A COG Tag Located Around Each Onem,
Estimated 30 COG Tags in the game
When you get chainsawed (mostly by shotgun)when he stopes chainsawing you have to stick him with a gernade(smoke) and chainsaw him back(regular chain saw)and that should stop it.
Shoot a little bit of your ammo out then get action reload the when you get action reload switch to the gun you want it on and hit Rt, Lt, B at the same time and it will work this is how it works when you die the guy you did it on will die at the same time you die.(this one took me a while to master)

Okay for this glitch what you have to do is on the side where you turn only left to get the torque bow is the best side to do this glitch. So when your at the torque you should see a spot that looks like this \__/ go on cover near that spot and run on the wall to the other side (if you where -->\__/ you would run to \__/
When your the host have your lancer out. Walk over a new wep like boomshot and pick it up.. Then walk over it again.. And when you have boom shot hit X and B at the same time and you will chainsaw your self
Okay so all you need is a lancer and how to do a chainsaw jump (also called "long jump")
Okay so what you do is go to the flowerpots (by the water front) stand on the top of the stairs and look at the corner furthest from you then chainsaw jump to it and if done correctly you show be in cover but above the ground. Okay so now that your up there push you LS in the direction of the water, it should show the symbol that you can go to cover in a different spot. Press "A" to go there and you should crouch now keep pressing RT until you fire after firing get off the wall by looking behind you and pressing the LS forward (may take a few tries) when you are off the wall it looks like your really lagging but still moving, and going very fast, that means it is done correctly.
1) The first secret gamer picture you can get is by beating insane difficulty it shows Marcus Fenix with a red gear symbol behind him

1) You get your first gamer picture by completing insane difficulty it shows Marcus Fenix with a red gear symbol in the background

You want to get a grenade then get a pistol out shoot once then while it's reloading push up on the d-pad as if to get out grenades hit reload more than 3 times eg 5 then chuck all of the grenades if you have done this right you should have grenades out but can't see them then you can tag as many times a you want if you can't do or want more glitches add me joshpq with no caps or spaces just how it's writen ENJOY!!!
When you play online, when you start you have one frag which is smoke. If you haven't done it it's good to do. When you get close to an enemy tag them with the frag and they will run away with smoke coming from them.
If you go to canals on the side you have to go left to get to go under your bidge is the side you need to be on. When you first reach the first fleet of stairs to the left of your bridge there is a piller to the right that you must get on by pushing A. Once ther crouch with left analog and you will see the sign to jump over stuff. Press a and you will jump into the wall. The only thing is that you will fall back out. This is the begginning of a glitch to get into the walls of canals. If I figure the rest of the glitch out I will post again. This really works.
Go to the map with the wearhouse then go to the wearhouse in the middle then go next to the at the far right then put the bleech bottle wear you can take cover on it then take cover on it then jump over the wall.
Ok heres one...You can roadie run with the chainsaw active
1)Press the LB button and the B button while have the lancer equipped, if it works the chainsaw will rev
2)Once doing the following step above, let go of the LB button while keeping hold of the B button, now you will see if you press and hold the A button to roadie run you will see that your chainsaw is running. 3)Be aware only use this glitch with your friends as other people will just send you bad reviews ( there is an easy way to see if someone has doen the chainsaw glitch on you, Your body will explode as soon as they touch you with the chainsaw...and they will still be chainsawing you even though your body has exploded)-_-
When sniping online it can be a little hard to get kills.(1.when you snipe try not to move because it will mess up your shot.(2.an easy kill with the sniper it with the active reload you can down them in one shot.(3.if you can't get the acive reload shoot him with a normal bullet and wack him with your arm and he should drop to the floor.
If you are doing co-op this works even better
Be sure the boomer is somewhat distracted
Run up to it and stick it with a grenade
Jump backwards and run
Now he's dead
When playing online you can get easy chainsaw kills when you have more then one person alive one your team.1) if there is only one person on the other team and all he is doing is taking cover have one person take cover and shot back. When they start shooting run around where he can't see you and chainsaw them form behind. 2)when people have there lancer out they will want to chainsaw someone so wait for them to rev. And then shot to jam them then run up and put our cahinsaw in them. This is also an easy way to get grenade kills.
If you cannot beat RAAM here is a little help. On the map section you fight RAAM, there are four small concrete blocks that you can take cover on. Go to the top right block and take cover. For some reason, maybe a glitch in my disk, he will not come around the square. He stands there and tries to shoot through it. He can hit you but it only hurts a small bit. If you look to your right there is a small curved wall that you can ricochet a grenade off of and get between his legs. The explosion sends the Krill away and after the leave shoot as many Lancer or Gnasher bullets as you can into his face (Blindfiring helps on Insane). If it does not kill him and you run out of grenades, run past him and mantle over and takecover on the long concret barricade behind him. He should send the Krill af..
If you are ever tagged by a grenade on versus, here is what you do.
The person that Grenade Tags you usually runs away to run from the blast. However, with the right timing, you can chase after them and use your chainsaw to cut them to bits. The grenade will go off, but you will not be killed. Your health will be almost completely diminished, but you can hide and wait to get it back.
In the Fuel Depot, go to the front of either of the trucks that the LongShots are in. Continually hold forward and tap A repeatedly. If you are lucky, you will be on top of the truck, and can shoot from there. Be warned, there is no way down from this position. Also, it does not always work.
If you have read my Higher Limits sub, then you know where to go. However, it is very difficult to get down from this position. To get back down, have another team member climb from the small box to the larger one and stand against the large box. You can then use them to walk off of the box.
In the Fuel Depot, if you start in the housing area for the vehicles, run to snag the LongShot and then run to the right. There is a small box with a larger box next to it. Go to the end of the small box that is closes to where you started and hide against it. Then, jump onto the box and lean into the larger box. You should be standing then. Crouch with the Left Stick and then climb onto the larger box by pressing forward and A. Use this position to snipe people.
When in the Fuel Depot online, go into the hanger where the Hammer of Dawn is located. To the left of the Hammer, there is a shelf with a bottle on it. Shoot it with the SNUB pistol so that it falls off the shelf and in front of the ledge that you can use to get up to the higher level of the hanger. Then, quickly run into and jump over the wall. Do this by rapidly tapping A and pressing forward. You will fall under the level, where you can hide out and end the match in a tie.
Press A+B+Hold Analog stick forward to do a long jump.
Note this only works on objects you could originally jump over like a ledge, fence, or crate.
People do not like other people using this glitch so be careful where you use it.
DONT use it in ranked you could get your account banned!
Use only with friends!
To stick someone with a frag grenade, first off get a frag. Run up to someone and melee them( b button) and the frag will stick to them.
Warning: once the grenade is stuck, the person can still run after you and blow you up too.
Berserkers cannot see you but the can hear and smell you the only way to kill them is to get them out side and use the hammer of dawn when you make her run in to something is the best time to use the hammer of dawn when you hit her she will turn red and you can shoot her with the lancer(chainsaw) or run up and stick her with a grenade.
In case you are new to Gears of War and are doing pretty bad, you may not be taking enough cover. It is very important in this game to do so, as the Locust Horde can be a little... Unfriendly at times.
Go to the level Rooftops and throw a smoke grenade in to the broken windows across from the hammer of dawn.
You will enjoy it.
Ok. In Act 5 Pale horse. Grab a sniper and an arrow thing. He is invincible when the bats are near him. Use the arrows to get the bats away. Then perfect reload and headshot him. Do it like 5 times and your good. The second way is...in Co-op,have 1 guy grab a sniper and another the arrows. Make sure the arrow dude keeps the bats off him...when the come back on shoot at again. At the times when the arrows and off....snipe his....head off
My friend found a glitch in the Fuel Depot map. Go into the warehouse with the bottles on the shelves and shoot one of the white bleach bottles on to the ground. Kick it or shoot it at the little step that you can take cover on. Take cover directly on top of the bottle and try to climb over. You will fall through to the bottom of the map. If you get it just right, you can get to the propane tank and peek your head out and people can walk on you and it will hurt you a little bit. You might fall down realy deep and you can kill yourself. If you are a noob player you can hide down there so your team will either win or draw (because nobody can kill you-if you shoot down there the bullets always miss). As with my other post, you can send me a friend invite and I can show you.
When you are in the train station map in multiplayer, go to the left side of the train track. Go a little bit forward and you should see a section of wall shaped like \____/.
Take cover on it and do a Roadie Run across it. If you do it right, you should be crouching on top of the low wall (keep trying if it doesn't work the first time). Jiggle the left stick until you stand up.
Follow the wall and you can walk on it. Now for the fun part! Keep going until you see a small tower that is next to the edge of the rubble. There should be a little slant on the side.
Run at it and you will fall down onto the outside of the map. You can not be killed (that I know of-I don't swear by it). Run around and you can go through the mountains. It's hilarious!
It is much easier to play the game on co-op especially at general raam.if you can't find a friend to play with then the xbox live co-op system is very easy to us.you can continue off from where you left it in single player mode.
To get the cluster kill achievment there is an easy way.in act 3 evolution after you find the stranded and you are walking through a room with wooden planks for the floor the stranded will fall through and get atacked by wretches.-make sure you have grenades- jump down and run around until you think you have enough wretches folllowing you.tag one of them (melee with grenade equipped) or you could try just throwing the greande.you should kill a group of them.you can reload as many times as you want to get the acheivment.
There are 3 new gamer pics that you can unlock by completing certain acheivments:
(1) Beat the game on the Insane difficulty level.
(2) Accrue 10,000 kills in ranked multiplayer matches.
(3) Finish any ranked versus match (ranked not player).
When outside use the hammer of dawn and shoot the grubs don't worry about the
Flying guys they are taken care of by your squad!
P.S: This is a biginners hint!
Ok here is a good hint when you are near the last lvl to be able to take out the boss have the bow (if u dont already have the bow u r messed up) and 3 ammo for it you will kill the boss so much quicker than with the normal guns
To kill him get on co-op or if your really good single player well after the krill in the sky is gone hurry up and run to the trokkia gun and shoot for your life because he has a wepon that is like a trokkia so watch out.
On either Casual or Hardcore difficulty setting successfully complete the game.
