Gears of War Overrun

An Engineer and Scout fight against a Corpser and a Ticker duet on the map Skyline.

OverRun is a gameplay mode in Gears of War's fourth installment, Gears of War: Judgment. It is a class-based game, the first in the series, centered around teamwork and cooperation.

OverviewEdit

It is a class-based Horde and Beast mode mix where two teams pit off against each other, one playing as the COG and the other playing as the Locust. When playing as the COG, your objective is to defend the Emergency Hole Covers/Generator at all costs, while Locust attackers are tasked with destroying these as fast as possible to win the match.

MapsEdit

COG ClassesEdit

The defending team has four classes they can choose from; the Engineer, the Medic, the Scout and the Soldier. Unlike the Locust, who vary in strength and health, all COG classes possess similar physical qualities and mostly vary when it comes to assigned equipment.

COG characters are centered around cooperation. Each of their abilities corresponds to a certain kind of situation and only with good balance and communication between the team, can the COG be successful.

Locust ClassesEdit

The attacking team gets control over the Locust. As opposed to the COG, who are all about support and defense, Locust characters are centered around offensive combat. As opposed to the COG, who are physically alike and free, the Locust team varies greatly and must work within the confines of a scoring system. Simply put, Locust earn points for the damage they inflict and with the points they earn, they can spawn as a bigger, stronger and more valuable character of their choosing.

While they are centered around offensive-based, the Locust are no less easy to use; in fact, they might even require more. Locust characters are more specialized than the COG, require points to purchase and are, by a majority, weak on their own. Good Locust players choose characters that complement each other, and with a coordinated team, the Locust are practically unstoppable.
