To defeat the corpser you need to wait for it to lift 3 of its legs to attack you, then when it does that shoot at its stomach. If you shoot it enough it will scream. When it screams it will open its mouth which is glowing inside. Shoot at its mouth and it will scream again. Repeat this another 2 times. After you've done that 3 times the corpser will crawl backwards on to a platform. The platform has two small bridges holding it up. When Dom yells "Wretches! " turn around and shoot the wretches then face the corpser again. The corpser will use its legs as a shield but you can shoot its stomach through the gaps in between its legs. If you do it correctly the corpser will try to slam down on you with 3 of its legs before that happens stand one of the bridges and it wil break the bridge. Do it again but go on the other bridge on the opposite side of the first bridge. After it slams down on the second bridge the platform its standing on will fall into the lava with the corpser on it, thus killing it.
The chainsaw on your Lancer has the ability to cut through many things if you get close to it and start it up. This includes doors, walls, and boxes.

To do this you need a torque bow and another weapon of your choice as long as its not the longshot. When you start the fight Stay Put. You only need to move if he invades your bubble. First you need the bow. Shoot him once and switch to your other weapon. If you run out, you have a lower chance of beating him. Whatever you do, stay away from the troika unless your really skilled use it. But if not then I hope you and kryll are friends.
When you lure the berseker outside, use the hammer of dawn. After you use it you will notice the berseker has turned red. Immediately after this, use a grenade and press B. This will attach the grenade to the berseker killing him instantly. Note: This is faster and easier if you use it in coop. One guy uses the hammer of dawn and the other one uses the grenade.
When you are going to chainsaw someone to make them blow up press B then Y and RT then move the left stick. Do this all at the same time.
Take out a grenade and simply tag the Boomer by pressing B.
By beating the game on hardcore, you can get the same campaign achievements as you would if you played the game on insane.
First hide behind a wall then when you can go around it press A then quickly press B and hold both A and B at the same time and run into someone and they will explode. They also can't stop you from chainsawing them unless you get downed.
To get the achievement of killing three enemies at once, ten times, go to the stage Act 3 - Evolution. Now locate the area of the Immulsion plant where the guy got killed when he fell through the rotted wooden floor. Take along at least one grenade and simply follow the dead guy down the hole or any other hole, if you step in the wrong spot. Run around the cellar until you think you have at least three enemies following you. Tag one with a grenade melee attack. If you die, that's OK, since you restart right at the checkpoint of that room and do it again. Achievement progress should be independent of game progress. If not, reload the checkpoint and do it again.
Wretches are very annoying since they swarm your soldier and kill him nearly instantly on medium and hard. The best way to deal with them is to use a shotgun or the alien repeater, since those weapons let you nail them without the dangerous downtime of the chainsaw. The shotgun is best for the in close situation, since you can skip the left trigger and hip fire the shotgun quickly to catch the wretches as they hop around. Smacking them if they get close is the only way to counter, short of using A to dodge.
Shoot the Longshot, Boomshot, or Torque Bow. When the active reload bar gets to the broad area, press RB + B and immediately fire the weapon. If done correctly, you can keep shooting without reloading. This glitch does not do damage but can be a distraction.
Use the following trick while playing in two player mode and you reach a difficult part with a doorway. Have one player die in the doorway. This will create a block that the Locust cannot get past. They will usually line up behind your dead partner, allowing you a safe zone to easily pick them off. Once it is clear, just revive your partner and move on.
When fighting wretches (small, shrieking enemies that don't use weapons) attack them with melee strikes. The best melee strikes do not come from your grenades and Lancer chainsaw rifle. The chainsaw attack is too slow to combat the wretches when they swarm, so stick to quick-hit melee punches for instant kills.
Unlike some games, you can regain all of your health in Gears of War without needing to find health packs. Just stay behind cover for a few moments and watch as the bright-red gear in the center of the screen fades away. When the gear has comlpetely disappeared, your health will be restored.
In the chapter 2 of the game, you will be swarmed by enemy kryll whenever you are in dark areas. To avoid being attacked, stay in the light areas. When there's no light in sight, locate propane canisters you can blow up to create some flames that will scare off the kryll.
When reloading a weapon, pay attention to the upper-right corner of the screen for the meter that counts down. Press the reload button a second time when the meter's moving bar matches up with the stationary bar. This will give you a much faster reload and put you back in the fight quicker than normal. However, if you do not properly time the second button press your reload will take longer than normal.
To beat the Beserker at the end of act one, dive to the side whenever she charges at you. Run through the doorway to your right and continue to the door at the end of the room and put your back to it. Get the Berserkers' attention by shooting at her or revving the chainsaw. Now dive away at the last moment when she charges. This will cause her to break the door down for you.
When you press RB to reload, there will be a clear bar with a small white segment somewhere along it. It will appear where your bullets used to be. There will also be a smaller white bar moving across the clear bar. As soon as the white bar gets inside the white segment, press RB again. This will reload your weapon much faster, and if timed just perfectly, will give your gun an extra boost in fire power. However, if you do not time it correctly, the clear bar will become red and it will take even longer to reload than if you had not attempted it.
Turn on the game and wait for the "Gears Of War: Press Start" screen to appear. Do not press Start. Allow the screen to idle for a few of minutes, and a video will begin to play about Emergence Day.
There are thirty hidden Cog Tags scattered throughout the game. They are small and often hard to find, but there is a mark you can look out for that will make finding the Cog Tags easier. Look for large, red Gear logos pasted on the walls. If you find a room with this large Gear logo, examine the room and you are sure to find a Cog Tag somewhere inside.
When an Emergence Hole opens up, toss a grenade into it. This will automatically close the hole, and therefore keep the locusts from coming out.
In Campaign mode, look for the dead soldier symbol (red gear with skull inside) painted on a wall, floor, or other location. This indicates that the Locust have killed some Gear soldiers in the area. Because Gear soldiers wear C.O.G. tags, you should be able to find one nearby.
Fire a Torque Bow arrow into an Emergence Hole. This is somewhat challenging to do, due to the straight line of fire given by the bow. However, if you are close enough to fire while the line of fire is arced, it is possible to make it into the hole. A Torque Arrow stuck in the top of the hole will close it as well.
When it comes time to battle General RAM their are a few things you should know. First, Wait till the locus move away from him. You could shoot all day but until they move you wont hurt him. Use the torque bow or a grenade to scare them away and then blow the hell out of him. Second, if you can make it to the machine gun on the other side of the train car do it. That will scare away the locus and kill him fast. Just stay in the light. Good luck and happy gameing.
To kill General Raam easily and quickly, stay at the bunker that you get in the start of battle. When General Raam gets there, take off running, but make sure the Kryll are still on him. Go to the Troika where General Raam came from. Lob a grenade at him, then use the turret to kill him. Do this 3-4 times to win.
