The Coalition Rolls out Patch that Supposedly Fixed Achievements

By Sean Carey, 14 days ago
Server issues have plagued the early access launch of the fifth instalment to the Gears of War franchise. Now reports from the TrueAchievements community have confirmed that Gears 5 Achievements have stopped tracking and are not unlocking.

According to our users, these are some of the more prevalent achievements that aren't popping with the majority being in the campaign and one related to multiplayer:

Gears 5JACKed Up!The JACKed Up! achievement in Gears 5 worth 241 pointsFully upgrade Jack's Abilities and Passives in Campaign

Gears 5An Enemy Among UsThe An Enemy Among Us achievement in Gears 5 worth 78 pointsGet a kill with a Hijacked Pouncer, Warden, Stump and Elite Hunter in Campaign

Gears 5Jack of All TradesThe Jack of All Trades achievement in Gears 5 worth 112 pointsAcquire all of Jack's Ultimate upgrades in Campaign

Gears 5Gimme, Gimme, GimmeThe Gimme, Gimme, Gimme achievement in Gears 5 worth 45 pointsUse Jack's Fetch ability to acquire each Heavy Weapon in Campaign

Gears 5Relics of the PastThe Relics of the Past achievement in Gears 5 worth 207 pointsKill an enemy with every Relic Weapon in Campaign

Gears 5It’s Not Hoarding if Your Stuff is CoolThe It’s Not Hoarding if Your Stuff is Cool achievement in Gears 5 worth 116 pointsCollect all Campaign Collectibles

Gears 5Corporal PunishmentThe Corporal Punishment achievement in Gears 5 worth 23 pointsReach the rank of Corporal in a Tour of Duty

These are achievements that have confirmed as no longer tracking or being awarded. It's highly likely that more are not working — especially those related to multiplayer.

However, The Coalition tweeted over the weekend that patches have been rolled out to fix progression tracking in relation to Tour of Duty, XP, rank, character levels for online multiplayer, achievements and campaign collectables:



Although these patches are supposed to have fixed the progression system online and some achievements, it looks like there could be a delay while the servers catch up and achievements pop.

It is unclear whether or not campaign achievements that aren't related to collectables are still bugged. Some players are reporting finishing the campaign on Insane difficulty and not being awarded the All Aboard the Crazy Train Achievement.

Gears 5All Aboard the Crazy Train!The All Aboard the Crazy Train! achievement in Gears 5 worth 266 pointsComplete all Acts of the Campaign on Insane

Have you been having issues with Gears 5 Achievements not tracking/being awarded? Is the problem still ongoing? Let us know in the comments below as we are still unsure if the patches have fixed these issues.

Gears 5 officially releases September 10th.
