Gears of War Judgment Characters and Skins Unlock Guide – How To

I am pretty sure that I am not the only one who is crazy about Gears of War multiplayer. That intensity and ruthless executions are nowhere to be found. Gears of War: Judgment (although not made by Epic), conserves the basic feel with a bit of change. Overall, if you are a series’ fan, you won’t miss a thing for which the series has been admired over the years.

Now, like most of the multiplayer games, Judgment also has plenty of things/items that can be unlocked like characters and skins. Although some of these items come as a reward for per-ordering the game, you can still unlock other cool stuff by fulfilling certain requirements. Requirements? You don’t need to be worried much as they aren’t that hard to get especially when you know exactly what to do to unlock them.
