Overbearing Horde Engineers

Another reason why the energy you collect should not be tied to upgrading your character skills.

The introduction of classes in 4…paved the way for horde to be more abysmal than ever…speedrunners, turrets ect…now nonsense heroes in 5…gears 3 had it right as far as base building went…if you could afford a silverback…happy days…the one thing tc did do really well…was create the selfish horde community you generally come across in most games.:roll_eyes:


Yeah not that I would use the Silverback all that much but at least it was a option in 3. In 5 you have to play a certain character? Do you have to unlock/buy Lizzie? Because that would make it even worse.

I mean, I would use a SB on occasion, or if other players lagged out/quit. It was a fun option at times.


As you know party…me n the chaps dont use silverback unless we’re going for score…but in 3 it was a fun option for pubs players…5 is the most restrictive of any horde…its poor in lots of ways…pretty much why i barely touch it now m8😁

Even if you did unlock Lizzie and use her ult,(Sulverback) it causes all players to go back to the title screen. Annoying bug that isn’t fixed still lol.

FYI: Do not spend the $5 TC is asking to unlock Lizzie.

The character is plagued by bugs (one of them fatal) and TC have not yet given a timeline for fixing them.

Well to be honest I don’t plan on spending any real money for anything in this game. But I have 605 in Iron, but the funny thing is, while Baird is my favorite character to play in Horde, I’ll never play as Engineer, so it would be a complete waste for me to get him.

I don’t play PVP anymore in Gears unless someone sends me a invite, which hasn’t happened yet in 5.

Never play a horde without Voice Comms


Yeah from what I heard they are “passing it on to the team”, haha.

Meanwhile, you better believe that the store works with no problems.

I mean play all the time without a mic when I play with randoms searching customs and have had pretty good experiences the last couple of weeks considering.

Yeah I prefer to play as a character but some times, messing around or if there’s just two of us, I 'll use it on occasion for fun.

But like I said before, at least we had the option to use such a powerful weapon during Horde.

I mean, imagine if they come out with a character that has a Mortar or Hammer If Dawn ULT and they were the only ones that could use it?

The whole thing makes no sense. If you want to do a Hero system it has to be done from the beginning, not 5 games later after everyone is use to playing without it.

Text chat is okay. Not everyone is a hearing person. Some on PC. Some listening to something or not feel like hearing a person talk or don’t want to talk to anyone. Keyboard exist.


That is the root of the problem. It may be annoying but try to join a custom lobby. I never play random anymore. Most people don’t stick around and if someone leaves no one else can join. Custom people tend to talk more, be more experienced, more open minded and if someone has to leave another can fill the slot. Most custom lobbies tend to build the forge first. If your a Jack player pretty much any lobby will welcome you lol

We don’t know if “random horde” means Custom Lobby to them.

Yeah I play random Custom games. Have had a pretty good experience the last few games I played.

I usually only encounter bad team mates on advanced and below. In my experience I have the most trouble getting a new character to lvl 10-12ish. After that and I start queing for insane+ that sort of thins out the herd.

I have yet to try playing on Insane because I only tend to play games on harder difficulties if/when I really enjoy them. And I CAN’T STAND Execution Rules.

I’m just curious what’s everyone’s opinions on the character’s ULTs?

Some I feel are just lazy/boring.

for the most part imo they are useless only one viable is JD ofcourse cause it’s an instant kill if you have the bleed cards but everyone else I barely use them on other characters

Kait is dumb she can only stay in that form executing the minute you shoot your gun it’s gone

I thought I would like Marcus’s ULT because it’s pretty cool in Overwatch but in Gears 5 it’s pretty boring, it’s too short, and I am guessing not that great against bosses.
