- "Love the non stop action of Gears but find that the pools of blood and colorful language aren't such a big hit with the significant other? You're in luck - Gears 2 comes equipped with filters that downplay the violence and adult language. Dialing back the gore, language, or both is as simple as enabling their respective filters in the options menu."

The Content Filter Feature is a feature available on Gears of War, Gears of War 2, and Gears of War 3. Gears of War has it available in the main menu by being able to turn off the extreme content. In Gears of War 2 and Gears of War 3, it is available in the options section of the pause menu. The Content Filter allows the player to tone down the graphic nature and explicit language of the game.
When the language filter is on, it replaces it with radio static in the dialogue and the subtitles replace the words with "..." instead.
The Gore filter removes most of the blood in the game. There are still aspects that are bloody, such as the fight with the Leviathan or the slaying of the Rift Worm, but it is greatly reduced. In addition, enemies and players will not blow apart as a result of an explosion from things such as Bolo Grenades, Boomshot Grenade Launcher rounds, Torque Bow arrows, and Tickers, or being shot with weapons such as the Gnasher Shotgun or Mulcher at close range, or being chainsawed. When an enemy is chainsawed, instead of blood spattering as they are cut in half, there will be a shower of sparks before the enemy falls onto the ground, dead.
