Clever new arms in Gears of War 3
Along with the good ol' chainsaw-equipped assault rifle, a number of new weapons are being introduced in Gears of War 3.
A preview of the next game in the Gears of War series in GameInformer shows off some of the new equipment to be wielded including land mine gun, sniper rifle, and exoskeleton suit.
The Digger Launcher, for instance, fires target-seeking rounds into the ground. No doubt these will be used against the massive worm-like Locust that burrow underground.
A new super-powered sniper rifle called the One Shot is also detailed, along with the C.O.G. Silverback mobile exoskeleton that functions like a mech of sorts.
Gears of War 3 will be available exclusively for Xbox 360 in April 2011.
