I still mis the thunderstorm skin from 3. That skin was excellent. It had clouds and lightning on it. Closest we’ll get to that is the wind flare probably

Skins are a sensitive argument , in my point of view , as I find myself often in disagreement with most of people.
I do actually prefer more ‘serious’ skins , showing off darker colors , camouflages , damages , blood , or a pretty simple symbol on the side.
There has been a lot of discussion around this , but I still think that brighter/fluo/animated skins break the depth of the game , they ruin the immersion.
I want to go around and show off the most plausible skins I can get , both COG and Swarm side.
Here some exaples of skins I loved :

  • Midnight (Gears 3)
  • Chrome (Gears 3)
  • Simple Omen (Gears 3)
  • Forest Camo (Gears 3 , can’t recall the actual name)
  • Faction (Gears 3 , COG or Locust symbol)
  • UIR and Élite UIR (Gears 4)
  • Digital Urban Camo (Gears 4)
  • Raven (or was it KR? Gears UE)
  • Corpser (Gears UE)

Ok now , there was some actually brilliant ideas fit for me both in Gears 3 and UE , and I had that Digital Urban Camo in almost all weapons in 4 , I just can’t remember them all.

I just honestly think that my idea of skin should have the same love and attention as brighty animated skins. I’m not telling you guys not to use them , you just look ridicolous. You’re basicly wearing a spotlight easibly recognizable all around the map.
As long as you’re happy …

Not gonna lie most of the gears 5 skins are really good, the niles, rainbow and storm skin look sick as hell, I would like more over the top animated skins like in judgment

A MAN OF CULTURE I SEE!

I too believe the simple can sometimes be the best and in this games case the best set I have seen so far is the Matte that has come out slowly,Pixel Omen since its almost like my long lost child the Crimson Omen from 3-Judgement which will always be my favorite set.

A possible Console again oh how I miss that green glowing mess
