* ''Synopsis'': An old and expansive series of fanfictions, told nearly exclusively from the point of view of Locust fan-characters. Most of the adventures center on an elite faction of warriors called the Soul Killers, who are comparable to Delta Squad in terms of competence and skill.
* ''Comments'': These are nice fics that deserve their reputation, if for no other reason than the sheer volume of content and attention to detail. The characters are charming and easy to care about, even though they're Locust. Just don't let the poor grammar turn you off--it gets better as the stories go on.

* ''Comments'': I read this a few years ago and its one of my favourite Fanfics. It is quite long (46 chapters) and it is well worth sticking in there until the end.

end. I should note that some shipping and romance occurs, but it in no way is the driving force of this fic.

* ''Synopsis'': The story follows a 12 year old girl named Muse who's hometown is attacked by the Locust Hordes. The story follows her escape and her future in the world of Sera.

* ''Synopsis'': In this NON-CANON Machinima, Kevin is a soldier for the COG, accompanied by his buddy Dex. He's sent on a mission to capture the Locust Queen, when he blacks out suddenly. When he wakes up, he's intent to continue the mission, his allies open fire on him. He meets up with his ally, and they find that they have somehow become Locusts...

* ''Comments'': I've gotta say, this was really pretty good. It's 7 episodes long and has multiple endings. I found myself staying up late to finish it... It's dramatic, gripping, and at some points pretty humorous. I recommend it for people who like Gears of War and drama. Just don't let the non-canon factors (Locust apparently live above ground, and there are non-Berserker females... But the biggest is the whole "Eating Imulsion" thing.) get in the way of your enjoyment.

* Recommended by the author. Note: the version on fanfiction.net is not as good.
* ''Synopsis'': The story focuses on the [[ChildSoldiers younger]] half-brother of Lieutenant Kim from the first game. The story at first starts out as a seemingly average fic about an OC joining Delta Squad. However, things quickly develop and spin out of control, turning into a subversive deconstruction of common elements of Gears fanfic characters
** ''Comments'': The OC's develop their own personalities in fits and bounds. Also, as the first eight chapters of the fic were written by a sixteen year old with little fiction writing experience, they are not as good as the later chapters. It does grow the beard around chapter 8 though.
*** The fic comes in relatively short 2000-6000 word chapters, making it a quick read. Also, quality varries greatly by chapters. Some are great and others make you want to punch the author in the face.
*** If you just want to skip to the good stuff, go 3/4 of the way down page 4 to [[WhamEpisode chapter 8.]]

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4787211/1/Reconnoiter Reconnoiter]]'' by screennameless (Extremely coarse language, graphic violence, nudity.)
* Recommended by the author (she feels so conceited right now)
* ''Synopsis'': The plot is centered around an old COG fort that Delta is sent to investigate and some [[MacGuffin Locust papers]] that Baird is given by a Stranded. It quickly becomes apparent that there is a conspiracy connecting the two, and Baird deserts the COG to search for answers. The main plot is supplemented by slow development of Baird's character and psychology.
* ''Comments'': According to reviewers on FanfictionDotNet, it "is BY FAR the best GOW fanfic on the site", with "totally *perfect* characterization" of the canon characters as well as introducing original characters that are "believable and what's more LIKEABLE". Several of them have wished the story was Canon, which is incredibly flattering, by the way. There is also a large amount of background information on [[http://gowfanon.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page the Gears Fanon Wikia]] and an [[http://gowfanon.wikia.com/wiki/RP:The_Blackout_of_2_AE RP acting as a prequel]]. A revised edition is currently being published.
** [[http://gearsofwar.wikia.com/wiki/Gears_of_War_Wiki Gearspedia's]] very own [=EightyOne=] wrote a [[http://gowfanon.wikia.com/wiki/Talk:Gears_of_War:Reconnoiter review]].
** @/{{Night}}: Cannot recommend. The characterization isn't as good as the author thinks it is (especially, perversely, that of Baird, who the story is basically about). Does not have a good feel for the combat of Gears, or the ethos of "war is hell" it presents either.
