Epic Games wants you to celebrate part of your July 4th holiday playing Gears of War 3. How do they plan on doing that? By offering special double XP along with a unique “Top Wingman” playlist hosting Alpha rules.
The double XP will be spread across multiplayer, Horde Mode and Beast Mode. The date that double XP is turned off is unspecified, but it currently is going on now.
According to the Epic Games, the new special ‘Top Wingman’ game mode will allow you to select a special weapon skin per 5 starting weapons, and they are all Top Gun themed. An example of one of these weapon skins is represented in the image above of the Lancer.
Below is the full list of weapon skins available during this event.
- Maverick – Lancer
- Viper – Retro Lancer
- Goose – Hammerburst
- Iceman – Gnasher
- Jester – Sawed Off
