If you were having trouble getting your gooooooolden lancer code to work, included with your launch copy of Gears of War 2 - you weren't alone. If you didn't get a code at all, well you are still SOL. Lucky, lancerless folks have a fix, and it's a simple one.
- Launch the Xbox Dashboard
- Sign into your Profile
- Go to the Marketplace blade
- Select "Account Management"
- Select "Download History"
- Under the "Games" section, select "Gears of War 2 Gold-Plated Lancer Assault Rifle"
- When the blade appears, select "Download Again"
- Wait until the "download complete" confirmation toast appears
Now you can show off your bling to everyone in Horde mode. The Locust will never even see you coming...it's the glare.
