Active Reload effects in Gears 5

Hello everybody :slight_smile:

I was researching the net and this forum for a coherent and thorough overview list of all active reload effects in Gears 5. Sadly I cannot find a full overview. Only a few scattered infos in the gearspedia.

Lets us create a list together or does someone maybe already have a list of all active reload effects in Gears 5?

Thanks a lot and kind regards

PS: Freaking love the whole franchise and especially Gears 5 lets me experience that deep love anew. :heavy_heart_exclamation: :smiley:

I just start with this list of all weapons. Feel free to copy paste and fill with your knowledge and experiences.
I filled in the active reload effects I think that weapon has.

  • Boltok Pistol -> Higher fire rate
  • Boomshot Grenade Launcher -> Bigger splash damage
  • Claw Light Machine Gun -> Higher fire rate (and better aiming?)
  • EMBAR Railgun -> active reload bullets stun enemies shortly (according to gearspedia)
  • Gnasher Shotgun -> 6 Shells instead 3
  • Torque Bow -> Faster bow charge
  • Buzzkill
  • Dropshot Munitions Launcher
  • Enforcer Submachine Gun
  • Hammerburst
  • Lancer Assault Rifle
  • Lancer GL Assault Rifle
  • Retro Lancer
  • Longshot Sniper Rifle
  • Markza Mk 1 Marksman Rifle
  • Snub Pistol
  • Overkill Shotgun
  • Talon Autopistol

This one has no active reload seeing as the weapon does not require reloading to be fired.

Boltok has faster fire rate?

From what I heard it is as follows:

gnasher - full clip
autos - fire rate
semi autos - damage
explosives - range

True. Salvo has no reload. Thanks. :slight_smile:
Took that one out.

AND about:

From what I heard it is as follows:gnasher - full clip
autos - fire rate
semi autos - damage
explosives - range

That general overview makes very much sense.It feels for me that all autos have a higher fire rate with a perfect reload.
And all explosives seem to have a bigger explosions range.But there seems to be some exceptions, such as explosive Torque Bow has a faster charge time.
Or semi auto Boltok: Instead of a damage boost, the Boltok’s rate of fire is increased if a player achieves a perfect reload.

so there’s no damage bonus for an active reload on gnasher?

Only in Campaign, Horde and Escape. Not PvP modes.
