Some of my friends and I decided to play the game again today. And we made it to round 34 and 2 of my friends were gone (One in the bathroom and the other one died) so it was 3 of us left and basically I had 12 Boom Shots (Which is hard to store ammo for) and there were 3 guys left all holding that torq(Spelling?) bow. And they killed us because we got cocky.... Really pissed off about that. Well, anyway I never got to level 50. Has anyone else? How hard is it?
Has anyone made it to round 50?
Yeah i beat it.
The trick is to play the map with the 4 way intersection with the huge hole in the center. Then split up in groups of two and run up the stairs on opposite sides of the map and then kill everyone.
Edit: Day One is the map i was talking about, easiest map to beat horde on seeing you can not get flanked if you use my strategy.
Horde is reaaaaaaaallly easy to get to wave 50 on a few of the maps as long as you have 2-3 people and stick to a plan and a role ( one snipes, one hold the entrance one deals with shield management etc) it's really, really quite easy. Maps like day one and the snowy level with the two roads both have corners you can back into and funnel any locust coming at you to pick them off easily. I have done it a bunch of times. It really is very simple as long as everyone on your team (and it's very, very possible with only two people) is actually working as a team.
I did this back when the game came out, so I don't know what all the patch stuff is about to make it harder? But the map I used was pavilion, it has an easy place to fall back to and fight the later waves.
Hide in the alcove where the shield spawns. Each round set up your shields at the entrance to this alcove, most enemies will not be able to get through, including boomers of all varieties. Only problem comes when enemies start kicking shields down, but if this happens have one or two players pick up a shield and sit at the entrance with shields up while the other two fire on enemies. Every tenth wave is very difficult when the bloodhound things come out but its manageable.
The problem with doing it there on pavillion is that you can have four people in that alcove with the shield and all it takes is for a kantus or two to throw an ink grenade in there and it's game over. Day one is the best bet. it has space to back off. a shield close by, High ground and a torque/sniper spawn.
" You mean has anyone made it to round 50 during this whole Torque Bow Tag thing? I can't get my posse to try it, so I sure haven't. "What's the deal with the Torque Bow Tag thing? Is that there forever or are they going to get rid of it soon? Because I really hate.
Yeah, beat it a long time ago when it came out with a couple of friends and one of my brothers since they wanted to do so, and I didn't mind getting the Achievement. It gets boring long before you reach 50 though. I was dreading my time playing it nearing the end. But yeah, not too hard. Best times are when you're the only one left and you kill the remaining Locusts. It can be intense.

"Ha yep easiest way to do it, AND One extra thing that we did if it was just the 2 of us we would take the shields that would drop (2 of em) and set them right at the top of the stairs the only creatures that can kick sheilds down are the basic soliders or crazy mutant thingies so all the wretches and the bigger guys just get caught there and you can just mow people down and we would pick them both up at the end of each round so we didn't lose the shields on the reset.
I didn't get to level 50 in GoW2 but I was around level 38 it's not that hard just time consuming and you need people that will stay the entire time cause there is always someone that leaves early. If any of you guys in this topic wanna play, add me on Xbox Live my Gamertag is ISuperGamerI thanks.
The key to making it to level 50 in ANY of the maps is teamwork and location. In the later levels, it is important to keep plenty of shields up to slow down the flow of the horde when they try to swarm you near the end of each wave. Holding out at a location that has an ammo spawn can be a huge help so you don't all run out of ammo. Use different weapon types so each of you isn't trying to pick up the same weapon ammo at the end of the waves. Let the Horde come to you! Although it's pretty cool in the early waves to take out the shotgun and go "hunting for Horde," in the later waves that will make you the first casualty. Most of the maps can be done with just two players, but that can be a LONG and TEDIOUS process. It's not tough to find a decent group of Gears 2 Horders - play ranked Horde and if you're playing with someone who works with you as a team and makes the Horde waves wet their pants in fright, add him to your friends list. When it comes time to marathon up to wave 50, you should have a decent selection of Gears friends to invite into the game. And yes, in case you were wondering, I've made it to level 50 a few times.
Avalanche is really easy postion 1 guy in the cenrter and two guys at the top of the two stairs in the back, a mortar or mini gun spawns every round for the guy in the middle and he just provides fire forwherever the most dudes are. Also after you kill some guys with shileds plant them on the stairs it prevents the the riders from getting up their. You just have to remember to pick them at the end of each round and then plant them back down once the next wave has started.
