Adam Fletcher, Director of Community for Gears of War at The Coalition, just posted an update to the Official Gears of War Forum.
Hi all -
We have pushed out a change to Gears 4 this evening that affects the credit and XP earn rates in Gears of War 4 Horde modes (Public and Private matches). Below is a rundown of what to expect:
Credit earn rates have increase across all difficulties. Players can expect to earn more credits in Horde mode now.
We have shifted total credit earn rates to tie a bit more in with finishing the waves and less on finishing consecutive waves. This is to help players not feel as if they are being punished for trying higher difficulties and not always making it to 50.
We have also increased the Level XP earn rate on classes.
We are still looking at other changes for the future but wanted to get this update out before the weekend.

They need to remove the 20 wave bounties or punish people from quitting from successful groups . I don't know how many times this week I had a good group finally that was capable of finishing wave 50 and someone quit after wave 20 bc of the bounty .
That is a great point!
I asked them. We'll see what they say!
An alternate option would be to allow you to apply a new bounty after completing one , perhaps that's better than penalizing players ?
It's just extremely frustrating to spend an hour in a game just for people to drop out after a bounty is complete .
