When Gears of War 3 was originally released many people were eager to see what was going to happen in the last major installment of this series (not including DLC). Like most video games today they have easter eggs. Some took a little time to find, as others were much faster. This particular one circles around Dominic “Dom” Santiago’s beard. He grows this beard after the end of Gears of War 2 and is first shown in Gears of War 3. This easter egg was found a while after the game was released, and Achievement Hunter put a how-to video (featured below) of how to get his beard.


As previously stated, this beard was first shown in Gears of War 3. There is a thread on EPIC Games Forums[1] with images of just about anything with Dom’s Beard on it. Ranging from game characters, real-life people, and even places.


To do this easter egg, all one needs to do is stick very close to Dom during the prologue at the very beginning of the game start. At one point he will shout “Yo!” and that is your sign you have successfully completed this easter egg.

After the prologue ends, the game will start up like usual; but everyone will be wearing beards. Marcus, Jace, Anya, Prescott; even the COG’s in the background have beards on their helmets!



The internet has spread with many images of beards on many, many things. At the end of a “Two Best Friends Play” episode where they played Gears of War 3[2]; there was an image with some of the characters all having “Dom Beards” on their faces. There was also a Facebook group made in honor of things with Dom’s Beard on them, entitled “The Beard Nation[3]
