XP system messed up. I level up once from 10k xp in game

In arcade mode on social I will do well and rack up 60 eliminations and only get like 2k xp when the score board says 10k. What gives?

The score in game isnt the xp u get for a match.

Xp in gears 5 is atrocious in the way u earn it.

Xp is gained by how long u play the game, thats why 99% of the high reups are ppl that play horde/escape as the difficulty u play on multiples the xp gained.

So if u play 1 match for 20 minutes and get 2000 xp u could play 4 matches for 5 minutes per match and u would get 2000xp, this may change slightly depending on how many ribbons u get for the unbelievably low xp bonus i have ever seen, in fact ill goes as far and say its PISSPOOR

Ribbons play a big part in gaining increased xp from master horde/escape where as versus xp gaind is a complete JOKE.

Still its good that u lvl up 1 time from 1 match, i cant remember what thats like.

Hopefully THE COALITION learn from these mistakes and improve it for gears 6.


Wow I never knew that. Not sure what the point is then! Thank you for the great response!

The xp in gears needs to be buffed especially PvP. You basically need to have boost and even then it’s nothing special.

I agree. It’s incredible. I have friends that have over 150k kills (insanity) and they’re only re up 16. Imagine only being like 7% of the way to max level after 150k kills
