Gears of War 4 - Community Weapon Skins Are In-Game!

By -

Hi there Gears fans!

Earlier this year, we ran a competition for fans to design a Weapon Skin for the chance to have it immortalized in Gears of War 4. Our creators had the opportunity to enter two categories - an eSports Lancer design or Community Gnasher design - and one from each would be make it into Gears 4. However, the quality of the entries we received were SO good that we picked 4 weapon skins from each category to be created!

Today, we're excited to show the first 4 of these amazing designs as they appear in Gears of War 4! Each Weapon Skin is named after their creator to fully immortalize their creation as their own - and we'll be giving them to fans for free through a variety of different methods. Read on to see the creations in-game now and how you can add these works of art to your own collection.
