Gears of War 3 Easter Eggs Location

I mean you can shoot 1000 locust with a weapon but what about the most hidden things and that too connected in twisted sequence making it almost impossible to get. We are here to help you out in finding these deeply hidden secrets in Gears of War 3.

Dancing Wretch on Checkout
Two players can easily get it done if you know the right sequence.

Start a private match on checkout. First thing you need to do after the map loads is set one of the fire alarms on any side.(there are three of them).

This will open a gate in the electronics section (you will be moving counter-clockwise from here on). There will some debris behind the door. You need to shoot the door on the other side of the door.

This will make a fire extinguisher appear. Grab it. This will set the other fire alarm on fire in the Pharmacy.

Head their, put out the fire and you will see a cart behind the grid doors. You need to shoot the red hat inside the cart. The red hat then will be shifted behind the window. Shoot it again (you will have to shoot it precisely) and a car will set on fire near the green ‘Closing Down Sale Everything Must Go’ sign. A scythe will also appear by the exit.

Extinguish the fire and the Scythe will move to the bathroom. Head to the bathroom and shoot it from the ceiling. It will disappear again.

Next, you will find an electronic box on fire in the electronics area. Extinguish it. This will burst open a door in the section where you first grab the extinguisher. You will see the dancing wretch with a red hat behind the door.

Two Piece
When you’re following the Ash man while you’re heading across the Griffin Tower. You will be able to see a man and a woman talking to each other. The man will ask the enquire about the Two Piece. This will be a reference to a shotgun tactic in the Gears series. In this tactic, one runs to their enemies and melees them, followed by blind-firing a Gnasher show to put them down.

Start a new game in Act 4-1 and avoid the ash people, once you get to the tower, stop before you talk to Griffin. Head to where the chicken with the hat is and press X. In Act 4-2, go to the car which has ammo on top of it and watch it fall. In Act 4-2, go to the ammo crate that is located at the end of the railroad tracks. In Act 4-3, there will be an ammo crate placed on a box and a barrel, go to it and press X to watch it fall.

If you pull this off correctly, a chicken will drop 4 Cluckshots
