Sandbar is a map appearing in Gears of War 3. It is a large map, in fact the largest map in the Gears franchise. It was first seen in at E3 booths. It has Longshots on both sides of the map, making this a good map for talented snipers. There are 2 reliable ways to kill off these snipers. One way is to use the Hammer of Dawn to make them move out of the area to get the Longshot. The 2nd way (Only if they are on the cave spawn side), you can shoot them with a Lancer from the tower point from the Fortress on the right-side. This is not a map for close combat. It is best if the team all camped in the Fortress, or at the Cave Spawn Point. The Overlook is a good place for long range weapons (Hammerburst, Lancer or Longshot users) as you'll have an overlook over the entire map, but if the Hammer of Dawn is in play it can be used against you.

Player TipsEdit

  • It is very wise when playing on this map if you stick together as a team at the fortress.
  • When Hammer of Dawn is spawned (as stated above) it is an advantage to get that, this map is very open and it may help.
