Now that the scorcher is likely to be added to gears 5, that means there is hope for the saw'd off

miss this weapon. Was a ■■■■■■ gnasher but was good for a support playstyle of lancer and whipping it out, bouncing to the guy/strafing and 1 shotting them. Active I think aswell bumped up the range of it a bit. Was just a cool weapon to use.

Idk if loadout or pickup (like retro/boltok). But yeah, would love this weapon back. Very nostalgic for me. If the overkill can exist, which has an insane gib range and can gib 4 people in 1 clip, idk why the saw’d off is controversial.


Please no :disappointed: I see that almost nightly on Gears 3,_poxy weapon.:dizzy_face:

Even though I rarely ever play PvP in 5, please no to bringing back this weapon. I don’t want it in PvP or PvE.

The OVK is already in the game and far better.

Overkill is crap tbh terrible replacement

Not likely, as there’s already the Gnasher and the Overkill. If they do add new weapons, they most likely have to be of a different class, like the only thing you could compare the Scorcher to is the Cryo Cannon, And that weapon works entirely different and is a heavy weapon. While having the Talon makes it highly unlikely that we’ll ever get the Gorgon Pistol again as they work similarly. There already are two shotgun variants, so I doubt we’ll get to see the Sawed-off in the foreseeable future.

Nope, no thanks. The sawed off should be buried and forgotten. Overkill is just fine.

It would be perfect for Cole in horde/escape (his class) lol, otherwise I don’t think I’ll be using it in versus.

No. End of discussion.


Idky people hate the sawed off so much. It would work very well as a power weapon like the over kill. And they could use the nerfed judgement version instead of the behemoth gears 3 version.

We could get the how 2 gorgon instead of the how 3 version. In how 2 it was a burst weapon instead of full auto

Have you actually tried using it? The Overkill in Gears 4 was trash, but in Gears 5 it is insanely powerful.

Personally I want the Booshka or the Breechshot added in

Yes I have its completely busted and boring to use.

So its crap

Sawed-off was a cool weapon and all, but frankly it doesn’t deserve to be brought back over other weapons.

Ink Grenades, Boomshield, Mortar, even some of the other Gears 3 weapons like One-shot or Vulcan would be better because they’re more unique.

Sawed-off isn’t special because we have Gnasher/Overkill in its stead, regardless though I highly doubt they’ll add any more weapons to Gears 5.

Well, that comment didn’t age well…
