Basement Warehouse was a mixture of puzzles that the player had to solve in order to continue on. The player would start in the street outside of a fenced off building where they needed to fight until they made it inside the fence and decided to which way to proceed. If they went straight for the ladder that lead upstairs they would find a locked door. If they went inside on the first floor they would find a switch that would unlock the door. Once unlocked, the door would lead to an elevator shaft which would take the player straight down into the basement level. Once entering the basement the player has to navigate a unique climbing puzzle in which they must mount against and climb onto higher boxes. I was rather proud of this idea for a maze like climbing puzzle given that it was not something seen in Gears of War before, as the game lacks a jump button at all.
