Gears of War 3 Gets a Few Weapon Swaps Online

on October 17, 2011 4:00 PM

Two of the maps in Gears of War 3 have had some of their weapon spawns swapped to change things up a little bit and I must say these are the two that needed it the most. On Sandbar the Boomshot and Digger have been swapped with the Scorcher, and the One Shot replaced with the Boomshot. On Overpass the Mortar has been replaced with the Boomshot, and the Hammer of Dawn with the Torque Bow.

Both of these changes should change the dynamics of the map, with Overpass making it harder to hide up top and Sandbar now having the top spot be less attractive for an entire team to take over. Watch your own back, snipers.

Keep an eye out for more weapon swaps, as they’ve said they can do this at any moment with a title update for the game.
