Gears of War 3 Cheats

Gears of War has had a cheating rennaissance. Easter Eggs are the name of the game, and Epic has even added a few actual cheat-style effects thrown in called Mutators to spice up your Gears experience. As always, the Locust Horde is wrecking havoc, and it’s up to Marcus Fenix and his squard to murder the monsters — hopefully with as much grisly violence as possible.

Check back on this page for our ever-expanding list of content, so don’t go Lambent, keep your head, and revv up your chainsaw. It’s time to go deep.

For more of our regular walkthrough help, check out GameFront’s Gears of War 3 video and text walkthrough, it’s sure to get you through even the trickiest of situations.

Connect to the internet and make sure you have the newest title update, hopefully that should fix your problem.

Unless perhaps you didn’t actually complete the campaign on the hardcore difficulty?
