Playing for one shots/head down gib

was looking at one of my twitch vods and realized head downing feels really random lol. I do feel like the person rushing at you will suffer the most but I’ve hit plenty 80% shots on “could’ve been” kills.

I’m kind of conflicted if playing for one shots is worth in this game. I think any decent player will 2 shot down you instead of trying to play for a one shot.

Punishing (ignore the first part, they rolled somehow lol)



Kind of unrelated but I also hate how two shots in this game feel horrible compared to GoW4. All this spread bs with the gnasher tuning really ruined the consistency of this weapon.

This is why I preferred comp tuning from Gears 4. The gnasher did like nothing outside a few meters so you had to get closer and fight for damage. In Core Gow4 and Gears 5 you can just nuke people from a good distance and 2 shot down. Ill always prefer the clusterf*ck kinds gameplay, like everyone piling up and fighting with Gnashers which is why I liked the comp warmup playing in Gears 4. Everyone in that playlist were pretty good players and would all pile up in the hill with shotguns, it was such a fun time.

And that second clip was so bad, the dudes not even really looking at you. Hopefully in Gears 6 the net code is better so whats happening on everyone’s screen can be a little bit accurate lol


Comp warmup really did attract some of the best players. I sometimes would see pro players there too lol.

Yeah it’ll always be an issue I think but lets hope it’ll atleast be better in 6. Its something we ALL have to go through.

Get worked

The vast majority of kills are gnasher chunks, whether you’re playing for them or your opponent is playing for them — someone is going to get chunked. It kneecaps the skillgap horribly and turns the game into a glorified quicktime event.

But the clips

Would be nice to hit the leaderboard screen quickly after getting gibbed.

I do but mostly to check how negative I am.

Lol. Not worried about negative.

Was curious about the “p” word.

Depends on opposing players movements for me. That usually dictates what I go for.

I get badookied on all the time tbf

crossing out the names prolly wasn’t needed but whatever

Guy with 70 ping did that.

Lag comp has no effect on the game.

Yet I see it in clips and playing constantly.

Thanks man.
