Our first ever 'Horde Madness' variant is here right in time for the Holidays! Horde Madness events are variants of Horde designed to be different from the standard formula and - most importantly - a whole ton of fun to play (Gears vets will remember events like Ticker Tuesdays!). So, without further ado, allow us to introduce...
If the name didn't give it away, hordes of antler-topped Juvies will be coming for you and your squad in this 25 Wave Horde Variant.
Outside of boss waves, you'll have to fend off masses of Juvies supported by Trackers as they hammer your defences. Barriers won't help you much here as they can be destroyed in one hit, and all fortifications have vastly reduced health, so place those Decoys and Sentries wisely! On the boss waves, we also add a random set of tougher enemies to the mix that add to the insanity - be prepared to duck and dodge everything from Dropshot Scions to waves of Guardians.
Jingle Juvies will be available on Normal and Insane difficulty beginning December 15th.
