In the Gears of War universe, the best way to show your bling blang status is to carry golden armaments.Â Regular weapons are for peasants, and you’re not a peasant, right?Â No, you’re a high-roller and you won’t rest until you put Lil Wayne to shame.
So, how does one go about acquiring these treasured weapons?Â Well, if you’ve unlocked the “Veteran Gear” achievement in Gears of War 2 (reach level 100 in multiplayer), you’ve automatically earned all five golden guns.Â If you aren’t that dedicated, you still have a shot at a few of the weapons, but you need “Veteran Gear” for all five.
