“I’m gonna get me some updates!”

A title update for Gears of War 2 has been released earlier today. Whilst I knew there were problems with the game, I didn’t think there was this many! The update fixes a number of exploits with the title including:

  • Crabwalking
  • Invisibility
  • Weapon-slide
  • Melee through walls
  • Unlimited ammo

And I’ve picked just a few of the many adjustments:

  • General Fixes: Shotgun and Boomshot updates, meatshield chainsawing updates, team communication, Insane gamer picture award.
  • Balancing: Planted proximity grenade updates, increased quitting penalties, spawn protection, flamethrower stopping power.
  • Improvements: Annex uses execution rules, achievement progression in the War Journal, added 7 DLC-based achievements worth 175 GamerScore.

A full list of fixes can be found on the official forums and believe me, there are a lot. The title update will automatically download when you put the disc into your Xbox 360 whilst connected to Xbox Live. What do you think of the newly improved Gears of War 2 online experience?
