Cove is a map that is included in the Gears of War 3 DLC Forces of Nature.
Cove is a small port that the Stranded have taken over and turned into a little village. The map is very open with long lines of sight, but there is a really, really heavy layer of fog that masks just about everything. There’s a really nice sniper nest inside a central ship, but the sniper’s form is silhouetted by the low angle light shining through the fog.
A good strategy for Guardian in this map is for your leader to stay in the Sniper/Digger nest, from this position, he can provide support fire on both sides of the map, and he cannot be shot from behind. The one entrance however also makes it difficult for your leader to escape if overrun so a bodyguard is recommended.
Giant Chicken Easter EggEdit
To do the easter egg on this map start a Beast match (as this only works in Beast) and kill every single chicken on the map, if you did it right the screen will turn red and a giant face will come out of the "Crane" spot, shoot the eyes and an egg will roll out of the door beneath the face, this egg hatches and turns into the giant lambent chicken like the campaign one.
