This Week In Gears 5: November 3rd - 9th


We’re approaching the end of Operation 4, so we’ve got a couple of updates for Gears 5 to take us to the end of the season.

Tomorrow (Tuesday, Nov. 3) we’re adding the final two objectives in our Versus Event Medal group:

  • 50 Torque Bow eliminations
  • 25 Gnasher eliminations

On Wednesday, Nov 4, you get to vote for the final Versus event you want to play in Operation 4. You’ll get to pick from three choices; keep an eye on our social channels, so you can make your vote count.

Finally, this is the last week the store will be updated with new content. Once Operation 4 ends, all items in the Operation section of the store (except Marks and the District weapon set) will head into the vault; so, if there is anything you really want – now is the time to grab it.


The Versus Playlist Torque bow Tage banner image

Like the childhood game just with less touching (no melee) and a little more on the line…like instead of being “it” you blow up.

Torque Bow tag is a Free for All playlist where all players spawn with just a 5-shot Torque Bow tuned up for faster detonations and a little extra ‘boom’. All weapons on the map have also been replaced to provide additional ammo, and the winner is the first player to hit 25 Torque kills.

Happy Hunting.


​In The Mist, you and your squad must navigate your way to the exit through a dense fog. Keep your head on a swivel as the enemies will use the lack of visibility to their advantage to ambush you any chance they get.

a Grenade tag playlist would be fun :joy:


Anyone know if the Glitched set is stream or store-content?

Doesn’t this pretty much mean that OP5 will release Nov 10th?

Store. It’s impossible to buy from stream.

Dana said 17th so you might be right.

So far.

Store I presume… Kinda dirt bag move by TC since I spent 7,50 (750 iron) on the load out set only.

Glitch set is cool but I dont really care for esports so I might pass on it

Those UIR officer skins are nice, might try em out



What’s that? News article? reads

Yeah, wake me when Op 5 comes, or next week for the Campaign update.

bruh one of them has a cape :scream:


I think the helmets need a better look tho.

Those UIR Officer skins are actually pretty sick. I would love to have a game or DLC centered around the UIR or the Pendulum Wars, in general.

Also, does this mean I can’t buy them for gold (or whatever the hell the currency is called) next week? Or, what’s the deal?

I might just use my Iron, I don’t wanna risk it.


You know OP 5 is close and I can’t bring myself to be to excited about it tbh. Maybe for Gabe Diaz as he’s a neat character imo.
Though whether or not I unlocked him is beyond me since not much info was dropped past doing the tutorial on which I did complete but on PC. I hope I dont have to install Tactics on my console just to unlock him I mean I’m going to anyway because I like the game but still.

Those skins are crunchy.

I’m more excited for Gears Tactics than Operation 5.


well your gonna be awfully disappointed then.

Downloaded tactics about a month ago, haven’t bothered to finish it since.

Looks like I’ll actually be playing versus this week. I love me some torque bow tag.
