I started playing beast mode today and I noticed that in every wave - every COG hero was a Baird !! After we stopped laughing so hard from wave 12 (Bairds everywhere), we were wondering - why are there so many Bairds?

    Perhaps they're angry Bairds... – Shadur Mar 1 '13 at 8:30

    I imagine this is part of the build up to the release of Gears of War Judgement. IIRC there was a similar event in GoW 2 when GoW 3 was due to be released. However, I have been unable to find any posts on the forums to back this up. – bcpettifer Mar 7 '13 at 22:00
  • Oh that might be it... But i havent found anything to confirm this as well – Zero Stack Mar 7 '13 at 22:28

Haven't played Gears 3 since the beta, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say the reason you are seeing some many Bairds is that he is the equivalent of a wretch or one of the grunts. Not hard to kill but they are plentiful in the earlier stages of the game type.

  • I don't think so as he is a main COG. The weak ones, like wretches would be the 'stranded' – Zero Stack Mar 1 '13 at 14:49
  • oh well, was just a guess, like i said, haven't played Gears since the beta – Ravekner Mar 1 '13 at 16:46

Unconfirmed: I am almost positive it was due to the release of Gears of War Judgement - as Baird is the main character in that game. They also increased experience earned per match substantially, while offering the ribbon "Judgement", earned after playing your first match of the day.
