Skorge, the “Predator” style locust seen in a recent Gears of War 2 movie, is a “bad motherfucker” with double chainsaws that can cut through a tank. We know because Cliff Bleszinski told us so at a recent Gears of War 2 press event in London.

“Did you have a chance to get to [his part]? So you got to see that he wields a staff with dual chainsaws that can cut through a tank,” said the developer. “He’s a bad motherfucker.”

Bleszinski gave some background on the locust boss. He sounds a bit mental.

“I don’t know if you’ve seen the Kantus?” he asked. “They’re the locust priests, and they have all these abilities: they take a lot of hit points, they can evade, they’re kind of like ninjas almost in regards to their mobility.

“They can summon tickers by using their voices, they can control other creatures by using their voices, as well as reviving other locusts that get knocked down with kind of like a rallying cry. If these are the priests of the locust, he’s the head priest, and he’s also very high up in regards to the locust hierarchy, and of course, you have to deal with him later.”

Definitely more badass. Gears of War 2 ships for 360 on November 7. For the rest of our coverage from the event, including play impressions and new shots, click this.
