Yup. I can’t remember where I read it, but apparently there will be something like 2 or 3 specific challenges each with a reward attached, and there’s an extra reward for those who manage to complete all of them.

Rewards and challanges where shown on the tuesday stream, the challanges are:
-win 5 matches to get the Tester lancer
-play 10 matches to get the tester snub
-win 15 matches to get the tester lancer

Then theres a random set of mini challenges to get stars, after something like 9 stars you get the banner. overall should only take a few hours to get the items.

Edit: @Goodacre that image is correct.

That was what was shown in the dev stream. Yes it seems odd.

" There are four rewards for Testers to earn in the Gears 5 Tech Test:

  • Tester Banner: Complete active Tour objectives to earn Stars. Earn ten Stars to rank up and unlock the banner.
  • Tester Lancer: Win five matches of either Arcade Quickplay or Escalation
  • Tester Snub: Play ten matches of either Arcade Quickplay or Escalation
  • Tester Gnasher: Win fifteen matches of either Arcade Quickplay or Escalation

All four rewards can be equipped in the Tech Test and will follow you to Gears 5."

Are we not able to earn rewards yet?

You can. I saw it after I joined again, after getting booted once for being inactive. So YES you can see them and the progress to these three

I noticed in a match it showed tour objectives 25 kills, 75 kills, and 75 kills. Is this across several matches or in one match. I don’t see hot you can get 75 kills in one death match since the round goes to 50.

i have the ten stars but no notification i received the “tester banner”. the weapon skins go through fine

go to your customization menu and see it you see a ! if not you might have to restart it

quitting out of Gears and dashboarding to refresh does fix it btw

The rewards are totally acquirable now.

Just to be clear, there are three weapons available which are separate challenges called “medals” your progress should show 0/3 and as you acquire them that changes to 1/3 etc. This is for the Tester Snub, Lancer and Gnasher.

The Tour Of Duty are challenges which update periodically (every 24 hours?) which on completion give you “stars”. Once you acquire 10 stars you max out Private 1 rank and get the Tester Banner.

I don’t think there are other ranks in the Tech Test, but presumably in the final game you get small rewards through each rank cleared, and it all cuminates in a larger reward like a character skin if you get the highest rank by the end of the Tour.
