Gears 5 Movement

So after watching about an hour of raw game-play I still can’t tell how the movement will be compare to Gears 4

Is it faster or slower?

Is wall canceling the same?

What do you guys think?

I watched a good amount of the stream this weekend and it looked like you could walls cancel just like 4. It did seem slower than gears 4 movement wise though.

True, I think its slower

Looked similar to me.


I believe it has some amount wallbounce delays again. Avexys uploaded a video of him trying to go as fast as humanly possible on both alternate and default. It looked like there were delays. And it felt that way when I played Escape as well. Plus when I saw the pros do some casual bouncing at the end of a round, seemed a little slower.

Regardless, it’s still fast af, just maybe not as fast as Gear 4. I’m in favor of that.

Definitely looked slower. It was kind of cool to see them not bounce as much in the big fights. Felt a little more like classic gears to me. I know most people love the frantic wall bouncing but I personally like the slower chunky dodging if that makes sense.

I don’t care about wall bouncing but I do prefer a more free movement system which generally means faster movement.

Completely agree. I used to think the opposite, but I’ve changed my mind after Gears 4.

They confirmed it was slower in stream

From the looks of the stream it seemed to be a nice compromise between the classic and 4 and that seems to be the general vibe of gears 5 so here’s hoping :pray:t2:

I don’t wall bounce. I think its dumb
But I still like free movement

Good man. I fully agree. I’m not interested in “hyper-bouncing”, it’s an eye sore. It’s also not very effective, which I have several proving. Some people bounce that quick that they’re effectively coming towards you in a straight line.

Previously movement might’ve felt clunky, but it just meant players had to be a bit smarter with their decisions.

As long as you can up A and flick the stick to make your player shoot people on the other side of cover it’s all good

I hope that’s sarcasm lol
