Gears of War 3: How To Get The Weapon Onyx Medals Faster & Easier
Many of the onyx medals in Gears of War 3 take a very long time to obtain. There are a total of 65 onyx medals. An onyx medal is the highest awarded medal. You must first get the bronze, silver, and gold first. Obtaining all the onyx medals is required to get the seriously 3.0 achievement. You must also reach level 100, which is actually easier than obtaining all 65 onyx medals in Gears of War 3.
There is an easy method of obtaining all the weapon onyx medals. You do not have to play public versus multiplayer to get them. Private matches that include AI computer enemies count towards the weapon onyx medals in Gears of War 3! Sadly, kills in campain and horde mode does not contribute to the weapon onyx medals.
Here are the requirements for the weapon onyx medals in Gears of War 3:
Retro Lancer = 100/500/2000/6000
Lancer = Same
Hammerburst = Same
Gnasher Shotgun = Same
Sawed off shotgun = Same
Note that there is an onyx medal called called '"rifleman" if you get all the onyx medals for each starting rifle. There is also an onyx medal in Gears of War 3 for getting all the onyx medals for every single starting weapon called "master-at-arms."
How To Get The Weapon Onyx Medals Faster and Easier in Gears of War 3
Set up a private match with bots. Set the game type at team deathmatch with 35 respawns and make the computer bot difficulty on casual. You may also want to host a small map that makes it easier to get kills faster.
The bots on casual are very unintelligent, are less accurate, and actually walk slower. It should be very easy to get a ton of kills using the retro lancer, lancer, hammerburst, gnasher, and sawed off.
This is by far the quickest and easiest way to get the weapon onyx medals. It will still take a while, but not nearly as long compared to playing public versus matches in Gears of War 3 multiplayer.
