This week’s Gears 5 update see the long awaited reworking of the Re-Up system.
Alongside that, take a look at what else is new this week in Gears 5.
Gears 5 has finally gotten around to reworking the rewards for the Re-Up system.
Players have been anxious for a long time for some reworking of these rewards. From Launch until now, all you would get for Re- Upping (hitting rank 100 and resetting back to rank 1) was 1 weapon skin per Re-Up. This was not received well, as in past games you were rewarded with entire weapon skin sets, and even character skins, in some cases, based on the number of times you Re-Upped.
So, TC has decided to rework the system and change how rewards are distributed. This includes multiple weapon skins per Re-Up, for the first few ranks, anyway, as well as a really nice looking Marcus and Kantus skin for Re-Up ranks 20 and 49, respectively.
This really isn’t a huge change here, honestly. They added a few more skins per level, in the early ranks, but it quickly returns to 1 skin per rank. Sadly, that goes with the theme of Gears 5‘s post-launch life. It’s something of a mess at best, and disorganized at a management level at worst.
That said, I think the new skins they did take the time to create and add look good, and free content is always welcomed, especially when they didn’t have to do this.

Weekly Store Updates
Here are some noteworthy additions to this week’s shop.
I’m really excited to see the return of Young Marcus, a skin that was only ever in Gears of War: Judgement until now. I purchased this right away, and I think they did a fantastic job with it.
It’s also nice to see Civilian Anya making a return as well. It’s great to see those classic Gears of War 3 skins making a return.
I’m indifferent to the Winter Armor skins, but it is nice to see Young Sam return in the same way Civilian Anya is a welcomed roster addition.
Previously, you were only able to get this version of Sam in a premium store bundle, so it’s nice to see them finally adding it to the shop for coins.
