In Gears of War, you are Marcus Fenix; stuck in a cold cell when your pal Dominic Santiago shows up to bust you out. Times have changed, this is war. You are first given armor and a weapon, then immediately thrust into the dark, gritty, war-torn world of Sera. Gears of War is developed by Epic Games, and was released in North America on the Xbox 360 console November 7th, 2006. For many, Gears of War was one of the Xbox 360's first Killer-App titles. With its simple to use, innovative cover system, addictive multiplayer and next-gen graphics, Gears of War has earned its status. This walkthrough will help you along the way, from the first act to the final.

With these strategies, you'll be able to squash any Locust standing in your way, no matter how big and scary they may be. Not only that, but EACH and EVERY COG Tag is pointed out along the way.

This walkthrough was written based on the HARDCORE difficulty level. The difficulty level that you play on only affects the amount of damage you can take, as well as the amount of damage your enemies can take. Also, on Hardcore and Insane, enemies use more beat downs and tend to charge/jump cover more often. All control commands refer to the Gears of Wars DEFAULT control style.
