COG Tag Locations

There are a total of 47 COG tags hidden throughout the game in Gears of War: Judgement on the Xbox 360.

I don’t really have the time to find all of them, but luckily other people do.

A user named Da-Ruler (nice name bro) on GameFaqs has such time, and was nice enough to write up a guide for all of us.

It’s a pretty nice guide, with good descriptions, so check out the guide here.

He also made a video guide to go along with it which you can find here.
