Gears of War 3 Title Update 3 Has Hit

The third title update for Gears of War 3 has hit, find out what bugs, exploits and general fixes are included in the update!

1/11/2012
The third Title Update for Gears of War 3 has hit, and it will be automatically downloaded the next time you fire up Gears of War 3 (assuming you're connected to Xbox LIVE).

Here's a list of some of the balance tweaks and bug fixes you'll notice with the update:

Improvements
  • All unlockable and non-purchasable characters are unlocked for System Link play. Online play still limits players to characters that they have unlocked or have purchased through DLC.
  • “Classic” stalemates are now enabled on the Execution and Warzone playlist. An option exists in private Execution to disable classic stalemates and re-enable the man-up rule.
  • The ghost camera can be raised and lowered using the Xbox controller d-pad.
  • “Must Active Reload” mutator has been made more restrictive. Issues with the Torque Bow and OneShot have been fixed.
  • “Retribution” ribbon is now compatible with dedicated servers.
  • Holding the “Y” button before being in range of a DBNO player and then walking into activation range will start the execution sequence. This is similar to holding “X” to queue up a weapon pickup sequence when walking into range of a dropped weapon.

General Fixes
  • A second player signing in on the loading screen before entering the pre-game lobby will no longer cause profile issues.
  • The transition from spectator player view to ghost camera view will no longer force the ghost camera view to point upwards.
  • The map cycle in QuickMatch is now randomly ordered.
  • DLC that is not owned by the current player will no longer stop the player from using DLC they do own.
  • Horde will no longer use the Versus weapon swaps. Horde players will have Hammer of Dawn and Mortar spawns on Overpass again.
  • Fixed the lens flare on a scoped Longshot not appearing for a player facing left.
  • Xbox system notifications have been moved out of the way of kill messages in competitive multiplayer. They now show up in the top center of the screen.
Exploit Fixes
  • Removed Hammerburst and Longshot exploits with using the iron-sights/scope on Mercy where a player could shoot from a concealed position near the Sanctuary bells. Damage will not register when players are using the scope or iron-sights from that concealed position.
  • Fixed the OneShot exploit on Drydock. Players will be pulled out of the OneShot mounted pose when in certain positions.
