List of all Gears 3 Unlockable Skins, Characters, Mutators, Executions, & Awards

Oh boy, oh boy!  The day us Gears fans have all been waiting for draws near as September 20th looms just around the corner.  To help get you focused on playing Gears of War 3 and scoring all of its unlockable content, I’ve put together a complete list of all of the items that you can score.  Well, I didn’t put it together, but I searched for it and I’m repurposing the list for EB.  That’s the way of the Net folks, nothing is sacred.

Anyway, there’s a ton of sh*t to unlock in Gears 3, so you better know how to go about freeing the schwag from its digital bonds.  The complete guide/list below should help get you started on what looks to be the most fully fleshed out Gears of War experience to date.  I’d like to credit Russ Frushtick of the MTV Multiplayer Blog for putting this list together.  I just took the time to find it, so you don’t have to.  You’ve been wanting to play this game since Gears of War 1…
