My best Gears 5 accomplishments

A short summary of my greatest accomplishments in the past years of Gears. :slight_smile:

With that I’d also like to thank everybody I had the opportunity to play with and learn from!

Maybe I’ll start tagging people later, it’s a rather bigger list. :stuck_out_tongue:

One of the Pioneers for Escape solos. You, Turner and Beetle all inspired me to go for all the Escape solos I did.

Honestly one has to be the goat if they can do a 6 hour solo horde and not make a single death resulting mistake.

Pretty cool.

I’m sure everyone had some accomplishments of their own.

I think you forgot to add Brawler solo on every Escape map.

That Architect Solo was so special… I started at 1 AM just to test a little bit but the RNG turned out to be that good and I just happened to do almost anything perfectly that the first attempt turned out to be the last attempt too, finishing the run at 7 AM in the morning lol.
I believe I also explain it in the original video at the beginning with my super tired voice.

@Ektope (stupid Gears 5 Forumposts limits)
I’d be curious about what the others felt was their best accomplishments, especially BeetleCorn, he’s the real pioneer of Escape solos.

I wanted to fit in a lot more into the video but I’d had to extend the soundtrack and cut the videos a bit better. I’m a lazy edittor. :stuck_out_tongue:

  1. Probably the first to finish all cards.
  2. Figured a way to get almost every ribbons in PvE, apart from The Last Stand Hail Mary 16 Ribbons, some others figured that. But I already figured 30+ Ribbons Hail Mary with Demo, Methodical with Infiltrator, 16+ Ribbons on The Clock, 30+ Ribbons with Mechanic using Tri-Shot and Coupe De Grace… etc.
  3. 2nd to Re-up 50, almost 1st by a single day in the original curve. This took a whole month from 29 to 50, before any XP bonus came out, so never had chance to take advantage of those.
  4. Accidentally figured out God mode Gunner with Jack heal beam, while testing Ultimate Battery with a little bit of help.
  5. Managed to make “Combat Mechanic” with DeeBee weapons and Level 4 Barriers, doing more damage and kills than any Engineer builds, moreso than Sentries. And can somewhat carry team.
  6. Came up with almost “God mode Gunner” with Pilot, being immune to heavy and explosives, after being inspired by @Realkain’s version with Tri-Shot.
  7. At one point, I remember having highest score on (Wardens) hive. It was so easy that we did Score Boost cards and was #1 spot, for a short time. Probably the only time.
  8. I don’t know about anyone else but I managed to make “Ammo Regen Demo” and “Grenade Plant Demo” work, including dozen card combinations.

Me being a better random than most of the other randoms… :sweat_smile:

  1. Would be soloing all the hives without Cole under old ironman rules (only 4 people completed all the hives under old ironman, with proof atleast)

  2. Surge Solo as BM with old Ironman in OP4. BM didn’t have either aspect of her crazy passive during that time so it was alot harder than it would be now( I think only 4 people beat Surge solo with old ironman?)

  3. Malfunction Melee Only solo. That solo took the most effort/planning/brainpower out of all the ones i did to get done.

  4. (Kinda Sappy) but im very happy to have helped anyone who needed it when regarding CQC in this game.

I don’t really have many greatest accomplishments in gears 5. But I did feel proud when I did my first solo as Fahz back in op4 under old Ironman rules on The Barracks.

And of course, it was fun to be a part of a great team with my friends @Kid_Kook and BeetleCorn. All those time runs were so much fun. I personally am very proud of our runs on The End, The Split, Ice Queen and The Detour.

I guess you’re forgetting that you’re the #GunnerGoat.

One of two people to solo Onslaught No Speedrun (other one being @TurnerBurner922). It’s always the solos that have attempts span multiple days or even months like my Brawler and Marksman runs that were the most fulfilling to me. Specifically my Combat Medic one since I remember starting it one night at 1 am and finishing it at like 7 which left me 3 hours of sleep for work that day lmaoooo. Given the way it turned out, it was the price I was willing to pay even though I came so close to falling to my death so many times due to fatigue.

It isn’t complete but there is a lot of information on it.

Since people got that trend started, for me, it would have to be Master Escape solos, some with several different classes and with all the available paths beaten except one*(third saferoom on Detour - don’t see that happening without Brawler and I honestly don’t like that class anyway). I’d suppose the ones standing out most being Surge as BM/Gunner, and Last Stand as those classes as well, right for the former and left for the latter. Could name Ice Queen as BM too, but there I only needed to rely on the game not pulling stupid BS to beat it.

That’s what I’d say, unless doing both high difficulties in the Campaign(main one, not Hivebusters) without using New Game+, or any kind of other helpful involvement, solo, also counts.

*Also worth mentioning I haven’t bothered attempting a non-speedrun solo Master on Onslaught. Currently I haven’t kept official video records of my runs because console recording limitations with built in tools.
