Gears of War 2 Title Update 3 coming with a laundry list of fixes

Gears of War 2 Title Update/Patch 3 coming.

In my post How Epic broke Gears of War 2 multiplayer, I was quite vocal about the disappointing state of the multiplayer game compared to the polished and undeniably awesome campaign - and many of you agreed.

Thankfully, help is on the way with Title Update 3 (that’s Patch 3 for those of you who don’t speak Microsoft) which is in final testing and should be certified and released within four weeks.

Some interesting fixes and additions are as follows:

- Country preference added

- Players who quit will be replaced by bots

- Chainsaw invincibility fix

- Inconsistency in the time taken to get up after a smoke grenade removed, now always two seconds

- Shotgun shield glitch fix

- There will be a delay on chainsaw/melee after roadie running to match the delay added to firing the shotgun in Title Update 2

Check out this post over at the Gears of War 2 forums for all the changes.

    the game still sucks lag still sucks shotgun is still shite and dont even get me started on the hosting bollocks, the new weapons are pointless becus the new maps are to small for them i say go back to the good old shotgun vs shotgun that owned in gears 1 that took real skill (unless u were host of course)

  4. gears 1 fan Says:

    Gears 2 blows. the shotgun sucks because it cant body people from a foot away. the chainsaw is still invincable. the lancer is stronger than the shotgun(for some fucked up reason). and headshots are damn near impossible to get unless you are host oryou are within inches of someone.
    the multiplayer made is probably the worst expirience of my life and now i would much rather play call of duty or resident evil because their online play is better and completly fair. FUCK GEARS 2… for now.
