Unlock content or achievements in Gears of War 3

Can’t unlock “Game complete” achievements in Gears of War 3?

If the “Game complete” achievements won’t unlock after you complete the Gears of War 3 single-player campaign, it’s possible you closed Gears of War 3 or turned off your Xbox 360 console before the game chapter was marked as completed.

To unlock “Game complete” achievements:

  1. Go to the chapter select screen in Gears of War 3 and look for chapters that don’t have a completed icon for your difficulty level.
  2. Replay all chapters that are not marked as completed.

After all the chapters are complete (and marked with the completed icon), the appropriate achievements will unlock.

Can’t unlock Gears of War 3 content?

Some Gears of War 3 content unlocks based on your progress in Gears of War 2 or the Gears of War 3 beta.

Unlocking content based on Gears of War 2 progress

If Gears of War 3 content based on your Gears of War 2 progress will not unlock, try the following:

  • Make sure you’re signed in on your console using the same profile that earned the achievements in Gears of War 2.

Unlocking content based on Gears of War 3 beta progress

Some Gears of War 3 content unlocks based on the game save from the Gears of War 3 beta.

If Gears of War 3 content will not unlock, try the following:

  • Make sure that your game save from the Gears of War 3 beta and the Gears of War 3 full game are saved on the same storage device.
