So I just completed the campaign on Insane and boy. Let me tell you. This has got to be the hardest campaign of them all. Honestly, the main problem is that it is too long and ammo is scarce but hopefully with the tips I provide you can get this difficulty out of the way.

*First, and foremost, I'd recommend doing it solo. The reason for this being that most enemies always target the AI companion or Jack, making it far too easy to chill in the back and kill the enemies from a safe distance.

*Be sure to explore every area to get Jack components and upgrade him. It is not necessary to find all of them, but fully upgraded Jack abilities can balance the odds in your favor.

*Speaking of abilities, it is imperative that you have Stim and Hijack equipped at all times (Switching it with ricochet shield for act IV). This 2 abilities are the best in the game. Flash with its ultimate upgrade is also good for flocks and big mobs of enemies.

*Always, and I repeat, ALWAYS carry a heavy weapon. (With the exception of a Buzzkill). You can mantle with this weapons, open doors and they can help save your live, specially in earlier acts were you do not have much upgrades.

*Be sure to get relic weapons. They are not hard to find. During my playthrough I came across the Longshot relic (Act II) and it was amazing for battling Scions, then I heard that the Boomshot relic holds 15 ammo and that would've made it easier. And for Act III search for the Embar relic and Lancer GL relic. Honestly, the Embar must be the best weapon in the game it absolutely melts Swarmaks. Also, not a relic weapon but keep a Boltok with you.

*It took me approximately 12 hrs to complete the campaign on Insane with most collectibles, you might see that I haven't unlocked the achievement. That is because the game is currently buggy as hell. I'd recommend waiting a couple of days until it is sorted out.

As a final note, I am unsure if the Insane/Beginner co-op combo for campaign is available in Gears 5, but It'd save everybody a lot of trouble. If anyone knows if it works, please comment so that I can update the solution.

Happy hunting!

Edit: As confirmed by MushaConvoy, the Insane/Beginner combo works on this game.

Alright fellow Gears if you're having trouble of obtaining the achievement(s) of beating the campaign I found why some of us are having trouble of unlocking it.

Here's to find out what you're missing:

•At the main menu press Start (the one with the 3 lines) to bring up a menu
•Hover over to Stats and press A, then press A on campaign
•Now press RB to scroll over to Acts, it'll bring up the 4 Acts progress
•For each Act you want to check to see your progress on them on the top left portion of the menu. It'll show solo/co op.
•Each part will show a number and on the bottom of that number will show a difficulty icon.
•If it shows a difficulty icon underneath that number then you've completed that chapter on that difficulty.
•If it doesn't show a difficulty icon underneath that number then you haven't completed that chapter yet.
•Simply just load up the chapter that you're missing and beat it. After completing it you'll get progression/or unlock the achievement.

I ended up completing the campaign on Insane and when the credits hit the achievements didn't unlock for me. I played Insane on my 1st playthrough. When I check the achievement tracker it only showed me at 93% for insane and 87% for completing campaign. When I checked the progress I was missing Act 1 Chapter 2 and 3. So I loaded up and completed those 2 and once the cutscene started the achievements unlocked for me.

This was by far one of the most challenged insane difficulty Gears campaign so far, emotional too. If you're doing this solo I would recommend keeping the Claw rifle and either the Hammerburst or the Lancer GL. Those Bastions, Wardons and several other enemies are very annoying. You gotta strategize your playthrough. There's no guns blazing in this. Jack's abilities are very great. I've mainly used the cloak, hijack and shield the most. Also try to obtain Jack's ultimate abilities too cause they're very handy.

Good luck and it's challenging.

Hi there guys.

Another one here that just beat the game on INSANE and didn't get the achievement not even for winning the campaing/story mode. My percentages right now are 56% on this, and 43% on "beating the campaing in any difficulty".

Yep, crazy and [B]UNFAIR as hell, I beat the game because I have 3 days left on Game Pass and I won't have Game Pass anytime soon, maybe on december.

Anyway. I beat again the last checkpoint, which is considerably near the end of the game and we've to be grateful for it, and one story achievement pop up and after the credits my percentage goes up only on insane.

In my opinion and experience with more than 225 platinum trophies on PlayStation and almost 60.000G on Xbox, I think the game have a DRM located to every chapter and every checkpoint. So, if you get disconnected without any reason, something that happen to me very often, RESTART THE GAME, don't keep pushing until you now for sure that you're connected.

I won't repeat the game on this difficulty, at least not now, because I've been delaying some reviews analysis just because Gears 5 and getting this achievement, and it's really unfair and it feels like a pain right into your balls to not get the certificate that you suffer Insane difficulty.

So, good luck to everyone, I can assure you that Act 3 seems to be a little bit easier than Act 2, and Act 4 has some 3 "crazy moments".

Stealth, Mines, hack and health abilities are "the thing", and searching for some extra abilities is a good idea although it will take you to another crazy fight.

This is my first time getting a Gears of War campaing on INSANE and I haven't tried all the other games Insane's campaing, so I sincerely can't tell you if this is harder or easier than other games on Gears of War saga. I'm not a big fan of the series and it's really hard but it's not the hardest game I've ever played, but maybe TOP5-TOP10 it is.

Thanks for reading and good luck. Let's hope they patch this two achievements because it's really unfair to beat it and NOT getting the achievement. I know another guy that has the same problem just for beating the campaing on NORMAL, he didn't get the regular achievement, so, something is wrong.

Solutions to gears 5, only the most difficult have been noted, and techniques to pass them.

Overall I wouldn't say it's the hardest gears of war, that goes to gears 1 (train boss) and on gears 2.(the dreaded turret defence with out coop it's practically impossible to shoot those flying pesky enemies down as there's some scripted invisible timer, that was intended and designed for coop sequence, not important if you do not remember) 🤔😆

And lastly the gastly gears of war judgement (as baired), while that last stage is almost on a entirely on a different planet, and where talking vanquish arcade mode if any one remembers 😅 (not important if you don't)

Anyways to conclude gears 5, here's the solutions for act 2, act 3 will be included following the the rest.

I didn't add act 1 on insane for it was not that difficult, however and unless we are talking about the brumak in gears 4 example gears 4 brumak:

then I would have added a solution, since for the brumak on gears 5 act 1 would only just require Cole trains assistance and your entire team was there.

Concluding The snatcher on act 1 gears 5

That snatcher was a requirement of trail and error didn't require a solution (some may disagree) given the sheer size of environmental movement and less suppression compared to act 2's snatcher.
Given here:
Act 2 south mine snatcher (insane single player guide)

Act 2 matriarch research lab (insane single player guide)

Act 2 North tower warden (insane single player guide)

Act 2 east tower cion (insane single player guide)

(Strongly advisable to equip del with anything deadly, rockets, electric rockets, charged bows, ect by pointing your gun at him Same as below with your team)

Act3 Northern Rocket base Warden(insane single player guide)

(Overall I'm loving the game, just next time I'll give that matriarch a real go, as I feel sorry for it, all that detail it truly needs a challenge) 😆

Updating act 3 and 4 stay tuned.
