"We'll reveal them closer to the time as they are still in testing.. but we can share a COUPLE of teasers for now.

Some of them will be around 'Knowing Your Role' in Horde. They won't be tough if you play your Class in the right way, but they will if you don't use your Class effectively. These are focused on helping newer Horde players acquire some 'must know' Class tricks.

There will be more beyond that - there's a couple that I'm personally really excited about. As a bit of a tease, Versus Players will have an old school throwback style achievement to sink their teeth into that will take some time.."

That last one is either earning multiple Wings or 10,000 VS. kills.

It says throwback "style", so I'm thinking kill count but not necessarily 10k.

Knowing the role I think will be maybe grindy, but relatively simple tasks.

Let me guess... "Seriously 1.0 v.2"

Hopefully if it's 10K kills, it's retroactive. I have 39,000 bodies on my resume.

Nope. We did that throwback with Master At Arms.

So something that "will take some time" for versus players that is a throwback? My guess is capturing rings
Gears of War: Ultimate EditionTHIS! IS! ANNEX!The THIS! IS! ANNEX! achievement in Gears of War: Ultimate Edition worth 172 pointsComplete 100 matches in ring-based game types on Xbox Live and capture 3 objectives in each match

Gears of War 2Annex: Now With Execution RulesThe Annex: Now With Execution Rules achievement in Gears of War 2 worth 170 pointsWin an Annex match on each Flashback and Combustible Map Pack map (not Custom)


This would also be in line with them trying to push esports (escalation)

Hopefully can just boost private as the previous games if these are the ones.

Someone just confirmed on the Gears stream going now that the new Vs "throwback" achievement is indeed 10,000 KILLS. Seriously 1.0. I'm ready.

They also said the kills are not retroactive but you can get them against the bots.

They also said no more achievements tied into wings or rank. They also said no more "classy" style achievements. They said if/when the flaming skin events ends they will make them craftable to avoid a sybarite type of deal.

At least it counts against bots. Still not retroactive so it'll be a small grind nonetheless.

What do u mean by “someone”? As in a staff member? Also it’s not retroactive? Was this info all given in the stream?

Yes. I was the one who asked the question for more hints about the upcoming achievements. Coalition said seriously old school, 10,000 kills, not retroactive, kills in co op vs. bots will count.

I wanted to like this game so much. The more they've updated it, the more I've been driven away from it. I used to love this series so much, but I don't even know if I'll get Gears 5.

I absolutely won't be getting Gears 5.
The Coalition has managed to screw up this franchise even worse than 343 screwed up Halo, I didn't think that was possible.

I'll rent gears 5, blow through it on the easiest difficulty for the story and take it back. Way too much time put into this one and still not done because of server issues. Bastards.

I'll take more Horde achievements....thank god no more campaign achievements either and as for the VS achievements, yeah count me out...the 1000 assists achievement was a grind for me because I don't play VS at all

Tc artificially inflating the lifespan of GOW4 with these has just finished me on the series. I'll 100% GOW4 and that'll be it. No GOW5 or anything. I'll just wrap the series with first 4 games + judgement 100% and that'll satisfy me.

A few extra add on achievements I can understand. But when you're deliberately adding more just for the hell of it that don't contribute meaningfully...
