Gears of War 2 Screenshot - 868081

Epic is running a Gears of War 2 holiday event for the next 12 days. Each day brings a new (or returning) twist on the multiplayer modes, and increases the XP multiplier by one.

The full list, courtesy of the Epic forums:

1. "On the first day of Gearsmas Epic gave to me, a concussion from a smoke grenade." - Dec 22 - 12 x XP multiplier. 2. 2 Flaming Bloodmounts (2 Bloodmounts with Flamethrowers every wave) - Dec 23 - 13 x XP multiplier. 3. 3 Extra Clips (3 extra clips of ammo in every weapon) - Dec 24 - 14 x XP multiplier. 4. 4 Frag grenades (Frag grenade pickups have 4) - Dec 25 - 15 x XP multiplier. 5. 5 Torque Bow Tags (Many rifle creatures carry Torque Bows in Horde) - Dec 26 - 16 x XP multiplier. 6. 6 Melee Monsters (All melee creatures Horde) - Dec 27 - 17 x XP multiplier. 7. 7 Sires a storming - Dec 28 - 18 x XP multiplier. 8. 8 Old School Gears Heads (4 v 4 MP) - Dec 29 - 19 x XP multiplier. 9. 9 Boomers Booming (Boomer squads on every wave) - Dec 30 - 20 x XP multiplier. 10. 10 Waves of Tickers (all Ticker Horde) - Dec 31 - 21 x XP multiplier. 11. 11 Wretches Wretching (Wretches with Shotguns) - Jan 1 - 22 x XP multiplier. 12. Some of the above (1, 3, 4, 8, 10) - Jan 2 - 23 x XP multiplier.

Bonus: Golden Lancer and Hammerburst for the duration of the event

I'll probably wait until January 2 to jump in. Sounds like an excellent way to get tons of kills, XP, and my missing Horde achievements.
