Mutators are a new addition to Gears of War 3 allowing you to make the game easier, harder or more fun. Points/experience received in Arcade or Horde mode will vary depending on the easy and hard mutators you choose.

MutatorsEdit

Fun Mutators (No Change)Edit

Mutator Requirements
Big Head Unlock the gold Hoarder medal (Complete 1,000 waves of Horde)
Effects
Causes the heads of everyone, both Locust and Human, to inflate to comical proportions. Both Human and Locust combat and mission dialogue (not cutscenes) become high-pitched.


Mutator Requirements
Pinata Unlock the gold Investor medal (Earn $500,000 in Beast mode)
Effects
Special tokens drop from every kill. Collect them to gather points.

* This is NOT additional points for kills. Each enemy will drop coins corresponding to the amount you would get from the enemy. They also disappear within a few seconds.

Mutator Requirements
Headless Chicken Available immediately
Effects
If an enemy receives a fatal head shot, they will flail around, firing at their allies. However, if the head of the last enemy alive is decapitated, that enemy will attack the nearest player (or fortifications in Horde 2.0.) If the decapitated victim is a Butcher, he will simply walk around and attack the nearest enemies/allies. The moment the blood spouting from the Butcher's head stops, the Butcher drops dead and this goes for any enemy that is decapitated.


Mutator Requirements
Laugh Track Unlock the bronze Tour of Duty, For the Horde, I'm a Beast and Warmonger medals (Finish Campaign, Horde, Beast and Arcade on Casual difficulty)
Effects
After every kill, a crowd will laugh, similar to that of a sitcom.


Mutator Requirements
Flower Blood Unlock the silver King of COG medal (Earn 2,000,000 points in Arcade)
Effects
All blood effects are replaced with pretty flowers.


Hard Mutators (+5% - +10%)Edit

Mutator Requirements
Friendly Fire Successfully complete the game in 4 player co-op
Effects
Enables friendly fire. This is the only Hard Mutator to add only +5% exp. The rest all add +10%.


Mutator Requirements
No Ammo Pickups Available immediately
Effects
Gets rid of ammo boxes on map and does not award you ammo after completing a wave.


Mutator Requirements
Must Active Reload Unlock the silver Active Reloader medal (Perform 2,500 perfect active reloads)
Effects
Failing to perform a perfect active reload will cause the weapon to jam (same as failing to active reload at all). The normal active reload bar is removed, and not attempting to reload at all will still jam your gun.


Mutator Requirements
Vampire Get the Executioner ribbon 100 times. To obtain the executioner ribbon, perform the most executions (List of Gears of War Executions) in a game of Versus. (Curb-stomps, extended executions, chainsaw kills, retro charges and taking captive all count as executions for this ribbon.)
Effects
You do not regain health, but the damage you inflict upon enemies heals you.


Mutator Requirements
Enemy Regeneration Unlock the bronze Aficionado medal (Play 50 chapters in Arcade)
Effects
Non-Lambent Enemies regenerate health.


Easy Mutators (-25%)Edit

Mutator Requirements
Super Reload Unlock bronze Master at Arms medal (Obtain 500 kills with each of the starting guns)
Effects
Active reloading gives a much larger damage boost, gives an extra round in your magazine for every bullet you reloaded, and makes actives last forever until you change weapons/die.


Mutator Requirements
Infinite Ammo Earn the Combat Engineer ribbon 100 times.
Effects
Unlimited ammo for all pistols and starter weapons (not grenades, but Gorgon and boltok pistol as well), but you must reload between clips.

* The Cleaver technically gets infinite ammo as well, but you have to hit "B" to attack after "Right Trigger" no longer works.

Mutator Requirements
Instagib Melee Score 200 kills as a Wretch (in Beast mode)
Effects
Player melees cause instant death except on Lambent Berserkers.


Mutator Requirements
Big Explosions Unlock the Hail Mary ribbon 100 times
Effects
Both friendly and enemy explosions have a larger blast radius. No extra damage is added.


Mutator Requirements
Comet Unlock the silver Shock Trooper medal. (Obtain the First Blood ribbon 300 times
Effects
When you roadie run, you build up energy until you ignite into a fireball that you can unleash on impacting enemies. After roadie running, you will be unable to roadie run again for a few seconds. However, while roadie running you will run clean through many enemies as they instantly explode.
