Video Guides for Gears 5 Achievements and methods for grinding XP to reach requirements for "Seriously 5.0 - Chapter 1". Lots of helpful guides on the Campaign Achievements, Collectibles as well as a few others. Despite lots of online hate I really enjoyed this game and think it's great. Now at launch the stats and cheevs we're all f*cked which was annoying but it's believed they have all been sorted out since. The amount of XP they expect you to get for Re-Up 20 is unreasonable, if you like playing other games too i'd suggest using the method below for XP grinding!


This is part of Xbox Game Pass!

Quick Review | 


For the original 1000G I'm gonna be honest, it's not very time friendly but still very fun and most Achievements are reasonable. I have guides on how to help get these Achievements and how to work toward the iconic "Seriously.." Achievement 5.0 - Chapter 1

There's a way to idle XP using Escape Mode which can help with the Escape Character Levels. As for the Horde Characters I have a method on how to get decent XP without much difficulty.

As for Campaign you should realize you need to get Collectibles, Components, Relic Weapons, Jack's Ultimate Upgrades, Condor Crash Sites and a few other things to look out for during your play-through. As for the components you can just get invited to someone's game who has the Achievement already to have that one unlock.

Happy Hunting :)
