Hit the Right Bumper and your reload indicator starts moving as your weapon reloads. If you can time it right, you can get a quicker reload with some boost to your firepower (depends on weapon) if you press the Reload button (Right Bumper) again while the indicator moves across the white or gray area.
Want another edge in Gears of War 2, either over your single player Locust opponents or multiplayer human opponents? I played the original Gears of War countless times and never realized you could reload while doing a roadie run! Actually, I’m not sure that you could in the original, but you surely can in Gears 2.
You might have to tilt your hand slightly to get it done but its not difficult at all. So, run, shoot, run & reload and shoot some more! It might not be something you can do in every battle, but it can give you the edge
