Posted on August 13, 2011 AT 07:32am

Earlier today Gears of War Executive Producer Rod Fergusson revealed a few new details about Gears of War 3.

Firstly he revealed that if you managed to unlock the Veteran Gear achievement in Gears of War 2 then Epic will certainly be rewarding you for your efforts. People who have unlocked it will be rewarded with all 5 golden weapons which include the Lancer, Retro-Lancer, Gnasher, Sawed-Off and Hammerburst as well as awarding players a specialized medal and title. Fergusson revealed that only 2% of the Gears of War community actually have this achievement.
