Gears of War 3 celebrates 4th of July in 'Top Gun' style


Epic Games is doing 4th of July right...celebrating America's freedom by offering a special 4th of July Double XP event in Gears of War 3 - with an added Top Gun twist. Beginning today, there will be double XP in Versus, Beast, and Horde mode.

In addition, there is a special "Top Wingman" playlist with alpha rules. According to Epic Games, the game mode will allow you to select a special weapon skin - all Top Gun themed - per 5 starting weapons. And seeing as how Top Gun is one of the top 10 best movies to watch on the 4th of July, I'd say Epic got it right.

  • Maverick – Lancer
  • Viper – Retro Lancer
  • Goose – Hammerburst
  • Iceman – Gnasher
  • Jester – Sawed Off
