- — Savage Boomer battle cry.
The Savage Boomer was a Boomer variant that appeared around 16 A.E. It is armed with a Digger Launcher, and has different armor. They have a larger, pointed helmet that only shows their mouth area, a large collar like the Grinder, a large breast plate, and have a belt stretching from shoulder to hip with extra Digger projectiles. These Boomers have reverted to a tribal mindset and no longer have direct loyalty to the Queen.
Savage Boomers were first encountered defending the Savage Locust mini fort on the Centennial Bridge, wielding Boomshots. As Cole and his team cleared out the defenders on the Barricade, the Boomers came out of a gate in an attempt to drive them off, but failed after Cole used their own Multi-Turret against them.
Digger armed Boomers were first encountered by Delta after the sinking of the CNV Sovereign on the Hanover coast. Two of them launched their Digger projectiles at the advancing Delta, with the other defending the rear of the position. They were then killed by Marcus and Dom.
As Delta made there way through the Deadlands to get to Anvil Gate, they encountered many Savage boomers. One was in a small locust unit guarding the second gate and was dealt with by the Gears. As they moved further into the locust ground, Delta captured a Siege Beast and used it to destroy 2 boomers that were part of a defending force that were protecting the last gate that leads to the main locust compound.
When Delta are discovered trying to break into the main compound, another 2 Savage Boomers are despatched to face them, but were dealt with. After this, Delta moved in to a heavily defended area behind the compound walls, they dealt with the sizable locust unit defending it, but were then confronted by 2 Boomers coming from the final defensive position before the Trenches, they were dealt with by Marcus after taking over a Multi-Turret.
After running through the trenches, Delta found them selves in a Ticker Storage area or "Pet shop", as named by Cole, another Digger engages Delta and is quickly dealt with.
After the sizable Locust force that attacked Anvil gate was dealt with, Sam and Anya arrived but were ambushed by a small group of remaining Locust, including a Digger that destroyed their truck and killed two Gears that had joined them. Marcus and Cole went to rescue them in another truck, the Boomer launched a DIgger that popped up in front of the truck, destroying the front end and killing the driver. Marcus then proceeded to kill the Digger, and the Drones that surrounded the area.
Following Delta after they blasted their way through Concord Air Base, a unit of Locust emerged from the tunnel infront of the Imulsion Pumping station. In this group were 6 Savage Boomers, this time carrying Boomshots. Along with their locust comrades and the Lambent, they were killed when Dom sacrificed himself to save the others by crashing a tanker into the Station causing a huge explosion.
Mission to Halvo BayEdit
In Horde 2.0, they usually spawn on Boss Waves. They can also spawn with a Boomshot instead of a Digger.
The Savage Boomer is playable in Beast and is a top tier Locust along with the Beserker and the Armored Kantus and is the cheapest of the 3. His purpose for being top tier is that his ammo is infinite and can go underneath cover and fortifications with ease. His reloading time, however is disappointing with the active reload bar being at the far right of the reloading bar.
Behind the SceneEdit
In the development of Gears of War 3, another type of Boomer was in the works, a "Master Boomer" that would control Wretches. It would have the same armor as regular Savage Boomers, but would carry a metal whip with blades at the end, and a backpack that wretches would sit in. It was cancelled before production.
