Gears of War 2 High Res. Scans, Gridlock 2, Stranded COG

New information Official Xbox 360 magazine:

-New weapon Scorcher (Flamethrower) "most realistic fire in a game we've ever seen", "it turns foes into glowing, charred bruiquettes of coal and can be made to shoot farther with a perfect active reload", a red hot barrel means it is ready to fire.

-Assasination gametype altered. everyone respawns until their leader is dead. when the leader is killed they stop respawning and the game ends when everyone is dead on one team.

-Assasination renamed 'Guardian'.

-New gametype 'Wingman' 10 players split into teams of two.each team is played as different character (eg marcus and marcus vs Dom and Dom etc)

-Features Matchmaking (similar to Halo 3)

-'Y' will cause your character to unleash several brutal punches to a downed enemy, killing him.

-'A' will cause you to pick up the enemy and use him as a shield. The player your using as a shield will go to the respawn line.

-New gametype 'meatflag' sort of like CTF but epic have done this in their own way. The flag will instead be character wandering around the centre of the map. He has his own weapons and even a place on the leaderboard. To capture him you will need to down him and pick him up as a meatshield and take him back, slowly, to your base. If you shoot the meatflag enough times while he's being dragged back to base, his captor will loose him and he'll go crazy on everyone around him.

-Specific weapons will cycle round the maps.

-Stopping power - if you're running towards an enemy but he is firing straight into your chest, you will slow down. All weapons have a variable amount of "stopping power" that'll slow down an opponent's running or diving abilities.

-The oppurtunity to spawn with either the lancer or hammerburst.

-Hammerburst gone through significant alterations. The faster you tap the the right trigger, the faster it fires. The downside is quicker shooting = more recoil.

-Medusa Bullet Shields. Big metal shield that stops you from getting hit. Can be planted into the ground to make a new cover. Enemies can kick it down though if they get close enough.

-All three Grenades can be stuck anywhere, not just on enemies. They can be planted on the ground, walls, doors, etc. to produce a proximity mine.

-Smoke grenades carry a stun effect, a concussive blast that temporarily disables nearby players and knocks any sheilds out of their hands.

-Poison Gas Grenade. Produces a cloud of smoke that kills anything that lingers in it. They can be stuck onto enemies were the will slowly die. People stuck with a gas grenade can also injure team-mates if they get too close.

-On games with no respawn, when you are dead you can fly around the map as a "ghost cam". You can even take screenshots that will be uploaded to the community.

-New map - 'river' - symetrical map, each team has a thin strip of land with a house and sniping tower, and inbetween them a river.

-New map - 'Security' - long thin map. to the left and right are stairs leading to veranda's that run the entire length of the map. you are barred access however by red lasers, which will kill you if attempting to pass through. A power weapon is barred on the other side of the map while at the other it is defended by sentry guns. There is a button in the middle of the map that turns the lasers and sentry's off for 20 seconds.

-New locust 'hammerhead' (helmet makes him look sorta like a hammerhead shark)

-Two people can chainsaw one guy at the same time.

-Mortar Type Weapon. Super-class weapon that competes with the Hammer of Dawn.

-In the menu change your weapon to the beginner friendly lancer or a version without the bayonet and get more accuracy with a different barrel.

-A.I bots in the multiplayer game

-When downed with a frag in hand: Martyrdom (R Trigger) detonate a frag when and enemy is close, blowing you and your enemy up.

-When you are downed you can call for help in multiplayer to your teammates.

- War journal: The collection of COG tags has been expanded to include the collection of story-based items such as personal letters and medical records, and a "war journal" will track which collectibles have been found and where missing ones can be located.

- Your teammates can help give you an edge in the duel by shooting the opponent which will give you the upper hand on the "B" button mini-game.
