Long time gears fan, new to multi player. TIPS?

I am a big call of duty guy. Last night I beat Gears then decided to play multi and got stomped. Kinda hard to figure out the flow and timing. I ended up corner camping and shotguning people in the face to get kills. My more agressive ideas ended badly. So I figured I would see what basic stategies people use and are successful with so I can try them tonight and see if I do any better.

Gears was never supposed to be just a shotgun game.

Sadly, as seems to be the norm with any game, a community will revolve around one weapon as "the pros" signature weapon of choice. Deeming any other weapon a "noob" weapon or "unbalanced" because they can't deal with it.

Lol I'm sorry but gotta laugh at the guy saying epic made 3 unbalanced for gnasher users. Wtf haha you do realise they balanced the weapons so everything is now worth using in its correct context. Gears was never supposed to be just a shotgun game far from it. Gears 3 is the closest game to what Epic originally envisioned.

Most legit statement ever!

That's kinda how I felt last night. Seems like the multi is a foot race to the better weapons on the boards and a shotgun battle. Feels onesided but fun.

All it takes to be good at gears of war 3 is a corner, and a sawed off shotgun. There are plenty of both all over the place online.

Agreed.  They need to fix the spawning too.  I thought that's what the beta was for, to fix this stuff.

ive been playing gears 2 for 3 years and gears 1 before that and epic have made it so unbalanced for gnasher users i wouldnt advise using the gnasher unless your experienced with it, stick with the lancer and the sawed off to keep your kd up, game is so stupidly unbalanced now i might go back to gears 2

except he didnt play the other multiplayer of gears 1+2 so he never had to rely on the gnasher to get kills.

it was changed for a reason.

still 1 hit kills at the right distance.

Practice, practice, practice. Trial by fire imo. I'm like you... I've always been a big fan of the series, just not the past MP until GoW3. If there's one thing I've realised it's that there's somewhat of a steep learning curve to being productive at Gears MP, but I don't mind taking my lumps. Like someone already stated, unlike many other shooters(Battlefield, CoD) you can't just step into a Gears match and luck into the positive kill column.

only tip would be to play.

wont be amazing straight away, unlike cod, its not as easy to dive in and get 60+ kills.
