Gears of War 3 Cheats & Codes Overview (Xbox 360)

Looking for Gears of War 3 Cheats, Codes, Tips and more? You’ll find them in our Gears of War 3 cheats page.

How To Get Multiplayer Griffin Character:

You can easily get your grubby mitts on the grubbiest multiplayer character of all. Get Griffin (Voiced by Ice T!) by simply “like”-ing the official Gears of War 3 Facebook page, after which point fans will be given a multiplayer code for the character.

He’ll be freely given to the Facebook community without having to enter the code on September 20th, but if you want him now ahead of the official release, then get to liking on Facebook.

Ice-T joins Kevin Pereira and Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski at E3 2011 for the inside scoop on Griffin, his character in Gears of War 3 and how he became a part of the game. Watch the reveal here:

Unlockable Weapons:

* The Gold Lancer and Hammerburst have been confirmed for a return in Gears of War 3. Players with the Veteran Gear achievement from Gears of War 2 will earn an in-game Old Guard medal and call sign as well as gold variants of all five starting weapons. That also includes the golden Gnasher shotgun. A very nice extra, as it’s an exclusive to Veteran Gear players.

* Chrome weapon skins for all five starting weapons are unlockable by playing the Xbox 360 or PC version of Gears of War and Gears of War 2.

* If you bought the Bulletstorm Epic Edition, you’ll unlock an exclusive Flaming Hammerburst to play with in Gears of War 3.

* Let’s hope you held on to your Gears of War 3 Beta save file, because if you completed 90 matches in any game type & earned 100 kills with it in the Beta, you’ll unlock the Golden Retro Lancer for use in the full game.
