Where is amount of damage. Lower equals less damage.

set WarfareGameContent.PawnGeistBerzerker defaulthealth
Where is the amount of health. Default is 12000.

Modify Weapons
If you wish to modify a weapon you need to open up the WarWeapon.ini file in the root Gears of War Config folder, then look down until you find the weapon you want to edit. For example, the Lancer shows:

[WarfareGame.WeapAssaultRifle]
InitialMagazines=6
CriticalAmmoCount=10
LastBulletStrongerPercent=0.75f
PRMDamage=Value=20,21,22,23,24
PRMDamageAI=Value=20,21,22,23,24
MagSize=60
MaxSpareAmmo=600
PRMRecoil=Value=11,27,24,21,18
PRMMinAimError=Value=0
PRMMaxAimError=Value=12,11,10,9,8
PRMRange=Value=8192,10240,12288,14336,16384
PRMRateOfFire=Value=850
AmmoFromDrop=X=100,Y=150
MeleeAttackDamageMin=1000
MeleeAttackDamageMax=1000
bDoMeleeDamageShakes=FALSE
MeleeAttackInterruptedRetryDelay=2
ReloadDuration=2.5
ARPreReactionWindowDuration=-1.0
ARPossibleSuccessStartPoint=0.700
ARSuperSweetSpotDuration=-1.0
ARSweetSpotDuration=-1.0
AIBurstFireCount=X=8,Y=12
AIBurstFireDelay=X=0.8f,Y=1.2f
TargetingFOV=40
bPlayFireCameraShake=TRUE
FireCameraShake=FOVAmplitude=0,LocAmplitude=X=0,Y=0,Z=0,RotAmplitude=X=45,Y=22.5,Z=11.25,RotFrequency=X=80,Y=50,Z=20,TimeDuration=0.25,bOverrideTargetingDampening=TRUE,TargetingDampening=0.5
bPlayFireCameraAnim=FALSE
bFireCameraAnimLooping=TRUE
FireCameraAnimName=CameraRecoilAssaultRifle

You can't edit the ini file by itself because of a runtime error so you need to look for the line you want to change and then do it in the console while playing. So let's say that you want to edit the clip size, it's the line MagSize=60 so what you need to do is to go in the console in game type set, then where the line is located which in this example would be the lancer section and then the line itself, and last but not least the new value for the line let's say now that you want a clip of 1000 rounds.

The cheat would be: set WarfareGame.WeapAssaultRifle MagSize 1000

So the basic formula to entering cheats AND any other command into Gears of War is:

set space [ enter section name here from desired ini file ] space [ enter line of that section here ] space [ enter value for that line ]

Activate Multiple Cheats at Once
Create a text file with Notepad and place it in your Gears of WarBinaries folder. Example: mod.txt. Place all of the cheat commands you wish to run inside of the text file.

Example:

set WarfareGame.WeapSniperRifle MaxSpareAmmo 999999
set WarfareGame.WeapGrenade MaxSpareAmmo 999999
set WarfareGame.WeapAssaultRifle MaxSpareAmmo 999999
set WarfareGameContentWeapons.WeapBow MaxSpareAmmo 999999
set WarfareGameContentWeapons.WeapBoomer MaxSpareAmmo 999999
set WarfareGame.WeapCOGPistol MaxSpareAmmo 999999
set WarfareGame.WeapLocustAssaultRifle MaxSpareAmmo 999999
set WarfareGame.WeapLocustPistol MaxSpareAmmo 999999
set WarfareGame.WeapShotgun MaxSpareAmmo 999999

set WarfareGame.WeapAssaultRifle MagSize 999
set WarfareGame.WeapCOGPistol MagSize 999

Now, while playing, you can simple open the console and execute your file using the exec command. Example: exec mod.txt
