Gears 2 gold weapons.

#1 Posted by Green_Incarnate (1788 posts) -

Why are there gold weapons in this game? They don't mesh with the games design. Anyone who uses them just looks like a tool.

The gold weapons made me not want the collectors edition of the game. I'd feel like a complete douche using them.

To show that you wasted an extra 10 bucks on a random disc and book. >_>

Sad thing is I have a golden lancer. >_<  Stupid brother.

The gold weapons are something I can't have because my codes don't work. I'm not bitter.

There is nothing wrong with them and you don't have to choose to use them anyways.

I got a gold version of whatever the other standard weapon is...hammerburst or something. That shit just came with the regular edition and I'm never going to use it.

I'm sucker for "strangely-plated" weapons. I "blinged" the weapons in Army Of Two, and I was happy to get and use the golden weapons for Gears Of War 2, The only thing, they should've changed the sight and highlight colors. Gold doesn't go well with red and blue.

Yea they look stupid, guess some people are into that kind of thing tho. Maybe camo would have been better

I'm all about collecting shit like that... I don't know why you specifically would NOT want one, because you don't HAVE to use it

You guys are just jealous because my lancer is worth more than yours.

I don't even have the game, so I'd hope your lancer is worth more.

Yes, I don't HAVE to use one, but I do HAVE to see every other jerk off on my team using one in multiplayer.

My teammate died on Horde with one, I picked it up, and I love it.  :o  I wish it had one.

I like the idea of getting something extra in game, but the gold lancer looks lame.  I think it could have been done better, maybe a lancer that is compleatly covered in blood.  I don't want bling... it's just a shiny target, I purposely target anyone with a gold lancer first.

@kevinkhaos23:

Why do you keep spam posting about wanting the gold weapons?  And why did you post in a really old thread?

shiny = awesome

I totally have and use the gold lancer when I play online. I'm currently skill level like 4 or something though. I'm totally a tool. 
 
Brother bought the game for the RC tank he got free. I got Gears 2 for nothing =P

I got the gold weapons, admittedly they look tacky but it didn't cost me anything (I picked up the collector's edition for the other extras).

I have the golden lancer, used to use it in the few weeks I played GOW2. The multiplayer just missed that spike, that thing that made you wanna keep on going, plus you couldnt use it offline in single player and coop, which made it feel like a complete loss

The best part of the gold lancer, is that it drops gold clips when you reload. 
 
Other than that, not much point to it.
