Black Steel Alternative in Gears 5

So, if TC decides to do a different skin variant for their Esports packs in Gears 5, what element, color, material, would you like the characters to be?

I think it will be the same characters but maybe different variants.

White Steel?

Carbon Fiber.



I think they will pick a new theme.

Probably first pack will be based around Gears 5s new characters :+1:


I was thinking maybe marble? Is it practical armor? No, but it sure as heck would look cool

I know that, regardless of what the actual characters are, you just want them to have lots of LIGHTS! lol

Marble, Grantie, Sapphire all them minerals & gems.

Moon Dust Armour

Galactic Armour

Space Black Armour



don’t forget vitamins!

Sorry, couldn’t help myself.

I like the idea of a White Steel or maybe along the lines of a “Negative” skin like Mr. Negative in Spider-Man (although they could drive my eyes crazy after a while.)


What about skins made of lights, with blacksteel details lol

I’ve said this before but i think if it was white steel it would look too much like some angels walking around or something like it would give off the wrong impression I think

White was already brought up in another thread

Oh shoot. Was there another thread on this topic? I didn’t remember seeing one

customization was mentioned in a rumor a while back.

I imagine they’ll take the MTX thing further this time. think along the lines of skins you can apply to characters.

i.e; unlock then apply a gold skin texture to guns and characters.

Skin colours, not that bothered BUT I say yet again:
Unique dialogue, even if it is a couple/few lines only.
Dynamic skins like in J.
ALL weapon skins to be dynamic
Dynamic emblems
…are you noticing a theme :wink:

I think Dynamic Emblems would be ace!

But should always be a choice of Dynamic and Static ones :+1:

Does there have to be Black Steel alternatives when there’s newer characters and armour pieces? Like:

Black Steel Fahz
Black Steel Kait (Gears 5 Armour)
Black Steel JD (Bald)
Black Steel Del (Gears 5 Armour)

It’s hard to think of alternatives because it may look worse than Black Steel. They could go with Onyx.

White Steel is the natural alternative.

But they could do anything or keep Black Steel.

Yes there are new characters but they won’t be able to fill 14+ packs.
