  • Easy medals, skins, mutators, executions, and ribbons

    To easily unlock medals, skins, mutators, executions, and ribbons, go to Versus mode, and choose a private match. Set the bots number and score limit to the maximum, and set the difficulty to Casual. You can now work on whatever medal you are trying to achieve. Additionally, when choosing a level, you can switch out which weapons you want. For example, you change keep changing them to all Torque Bows until you have enough kills with it to unlock its execution. You can keep switching the weapons before each new match so you can easily unlock all the executions. Note: The only weapon you cannot choose is the cleaver. To easily unlock the execution for the cleaver, go to Horde mode, and select Drydock. The Butchers will appear on Level 2.

  • Everyone has Dom's beard

    Use the following trick to have all characters have Dom's beard, including non-playable characters. Start a new game on the Insane difficulty.

After you kill all the enemies around the area, have Marcus stand in front of one of the pipe openings. Stare down the opening until Marcus says "Hello", then repeat the same thing with the other three tubes. After Marcus says "Hello" down all four tubes, a small chicken will appear. If you inflict significant damage on the little chicken, it will turn into a giant, golden, enraged, fire-breathing chicken (a.k.a. Lambent Chicken). If you inflict significant damage on the Lambent Chicken, it will then blow up into confetti, and Marcus will say a funny quote.

  • Vulcan Cannon for everyone in "Bullet Marsh" map

    Note: This trick requires the "Versus Booster Map Pack" DLC. Play Horde mode without any Mutators in the "Bullet Marsh" map.

You will hear RAAM scream when you grab the sword. Do this at the other two locations, and a sword will appear next to the sniper rifle just outside of the Kryll location (not where the Kryll are located, because the sword you find there spawns in that location). After you collect the final sword, your character will fall to the ground, and a group of Kryll will circle around him. Your character will float, and a Vulcan Cannon will appear for everyone on the team.
