  • PerseusKane Slappy Doodle (@PerseusKane) reported

  • Disturbed2Link_ Robert #GEARS5 (@Disturbed2Link_) reported

    @xFribbo @ohhHeir @CoalitionGears Im not saying that would fix the problem..likely wouldn't and i don't blame you for not doing it

  • OctusTC TC Octus (@OctusTC) reported

    @maine30001 @BChapy @GowFeed @CoalitionGears @CoalitionGears has flagged this issue internally. We're looking at it. Not sure if you can, but if you can go and earn 1 more achievement (NOT a Challenge), it should pop.

  • acidfiend HQ Commander (TIM) (@acidfiend) reported

    Damn, I got a 10 minute @GearsofWar multiplayer ban for having to quit a match because I had a ping over 1000! Every other game I own works fine but Gears started lagging horribly! @CoalitionGears help

  • acidfiend HQ Commander (TIM) (@acidfiend) reported

    @JudeBrazier I've tried a bunch of other games and it seems like @GearsofWar games are causing the issues for some reason. All my other games are playing fine but if I play gears, I need to hard restart my xbox

  • Ky_pro_2008 chris smith (@Ky_pro_2008) reported

    @MadEmperorMike @GearsofWar @GearsViking @CoalitionGears @Xbox Ive always wanted a gears controller as well. Been using a 20$ pad for the last 3 years with broken joysticks n the triggers dont work right

  • DaveyCO_ Davey Wavey (@DaveyCO_) reported

    @CoalitionGears please fix the lag compensation in gears5 it’s the only game I’m buying this year and I really don’t want rock be let down

  • Jon_Mac90 Jon mcKellar (@Jon_Mac90) reported

    @GearsofWar Having an issue with 2 Achievements on gears 4 and looking to get them resolved thanks

  • OctusTC TC Octus (@OctusTC) reported

    @ROSSHICKEY @CoalitionGears @danasissons Just him. It's a known issue we're deploying a fix for soon.

  • OctusTC TC Octus (@OctusTC) reported

    @AlexCorgi1 @GearsofWar @GearsViking Nvidia did release a Driver Update last year to help address it and we did a small update alongside that to help but it's not a full fix for some people. We're still working on stabilizing the game on post-382 10 series drivers, even now. We've had some hopeful progress lately.

  • GoWMills ⚙Brandon #Gears5⚙ (@GoWMills) reported

    @OGCryptor @GameStop @GearsViking @CoalitionGears @OctusTC @danasissons @nodezero Cause I want physical copies of the game lol. Plus, I never had any issues ever, it was just a concern about the tech test, which TC stated they will release more details soon.

  • QBZ24 QBZ (@QBZ24) reported

    @nodezero @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar @OctusTC have a few requests I would make a video but I bet you won't watch it just like the other 1s I put out. Please can we go back to no pre actives, fix the torque bow like previous gears, please be able to toggle new omen. I have more.

  • EItheVanshied Tomuchforya3 (@EItheVanshied) reported

    @CoalitionGears I got ban but my wifi went out i couldnt play either on lag

  • Michaelwilliar1 pinkpandamanz (@Michaelwilliar1) reported

    @YeahhDanTV @EppleSauce92 @aarondamron1988 @GearsofWar Then why does it crash for pc but not Xbox also why was gears only on Xbox for years if it was made for pc

  • Drungly_WF Drungly (@Drungly_WF) reported

    @PezRadar First step of rehab is admitting you have a problem 😉

  • JoannelKurt Joannel Kurt (@JoannelKurt) reported

    @CoalitionGears I have problems when playing online, I can not connect to Gears of War services and it shows me the BIGELOWE error. Gamertag: Jesser McCrew Country: México Plataform: Xbox One Error: Connecting (BIGELOWE) Time: 5 Days

  • yamalight Tim Ermilov (@yamalight) reported

    Got @Microsoft GamePass for PC to play some @GearsofWar Turns out they are completely broken on Win10 - can barely reach 30 fps, mostly hangs around 15 fps. This is pretty disappointing 😑

  • yaboitank_ Josh (@yaboitank_) reported


  • OctusTC TC Octus (@OctusTC) reported

    @thebrainiyak @CoalitionGears We've been working on it and have a fix ready. Just working out update timing to rectify it.

  • karlandrew63 karl potterton (@karlandrew63) reported

    @GearsofWar right guys I don't know what you done to the bots on gears 4 but u might have messed up and that's why the fan base is so low now these bots are way to accurate if gears 5 bots are the same then you might have the same problem

  • OctusTC TC Octus (@OctusTC) reported

    @WamMiko @GearsofWar @nodezero @GearsViking You can absolutely do it on PC, but you'll need to flip a setting to fix this. Head into your settings and enable Windows Telemetry. You should start to see progress count on PC from that point. No in app tracking but challenge achievements will still pop on PC!

  • mickleaver Michael (@mickleaver) reported

    @TheRazoredEdge This is one I’m afraid I’ll miss out on being in Australia. Even though I own multiple consoles.I hope that @GearsofWar fix this for Gears 5 @GearsViking @OctusTC @CoalitionGears

  • HossSauced Kollin (@HossSauced) reported

    @TheLosBurger @MendingMercy @GinAndTyler @GearsofWar It ran fine at launch, this issue I guess popped up more and more about a year ago

  • TheLosBurger Los Burger (@TheLosBurger) reported

    @MendingMercy @GinAndTyler @HossSauced @GearsofWar didnt have an issue lucky

  • MendingMercy Will Johnson (@MendingMercy) reported

    @GinAndTyler @HossSauced @GearsofWar When I got the error it directed me to a page that gave a ton of instructions on how to troubleshoot. It actually wouldnt even let me get passed the starting logo. I redownloaded it, but I Fiber so....

  • RolliePollietv Rolando Jauregui (@RolliePollietv) reported

    @Dirteebreaks @CoalitionGears @PepperoniCobra its been way more than a year, i doubt they will ever fix it tbh. hopefully gears 5 is not the same

  • RolliePollietv Rolando Jauregui (@RolliePollietv) reported

    @CoalitionGears oooof would love it, if the game actually played for more than 10 mins on pc to do these challenges =/ been broken for 2 years

  • JMartinis44 Jimmy Martinis (@JMartinis44) reported

    @HossSauced @GearsofWar This has been a issue for quite sometime. I'm in the same boat. #Gears5 better fix this or we're doomed for W10.

  • Neon_Velocity Matt Brown (@Neon_Velocity) reported

    @HossSauced @GearsofWar Strange. I’m rolling a much less impactful machine and didn’t have any stuttering. Alrihhh I’m not using a nvidia and heard that’s part of the problem.

  • HossSauced Kollin (@HossSauced) reported

    I'm really bummed I fall into the group with the freezing issues on W10 for @GearsofWar 4 on PC, luckily have an Xbox to back it up but I hope this is fixed for #gears5 ....

  • YourDevastator (Devy) (@YourDevastator) reported

    @CrypticAshes @REBLoutlaw @GearsofWar This. They way it's paced and broken up into an arcade game, it absolutely ruins the immersion it's trying to create. It's not important to be honest. Skip skip skip.

  • TidiestWizard Shawn Cano (@TidiestWizard) reported

    @CoalitionGears please for the next gears fix the match making and put us with the people are evenly skilled with cause Jesus I get put in lobby’s of diamond lvl players and I’m a silver 😂

  • mikemike1229 mikemikemike (@mikemike1229) reported

    @PlayOverwatch it’s crazy that it takes 30 minutes of trying to load the game cause it can’t tel the difference between me playing a free trial and owning the actual disc. Going back to @GearsofWar never had that problem there

  • MachiTembo MT 🇸🇱 (@MachiTembo) reported

    @CoalitionGears #GearsOfWar4 keeps on crashing on pc. I just want to enjoy my game please can u fix.

  • MachiTembo MT 🇸🇱 (@MachiTembo) reported

    @GearsofWar #gearsofwar4 keeps on crashing on pc. I just want to enjoy my game can u plz fix it

  • TheOnlyWhiteHOT Tyler (@TheOnlyWhiteHOT) reported

    @GearsofWar your website for card deconstruction is broken. Fix this

  • justinjagged Justin Medeiros (@justinjagged) reported


  • Loaffyy CodeCarter (@Loaffyy) reported

    @GearsofWar you should fix your first game before coming out w a new one. Forcing users to use old drivers just to play your game and it still crashin after months of playing on them is just pathetic.

  • GoWMills ⚙Brandon #Gears5⚙ (@GoWMills) reported

    @TeamRespawnTV @GameStop @GearsViking @CoalitionGears @OctusTC @danasissons @nodezero I was thinking about bubble wrap lol. But yea my games always comes with the shrink wrap. That's not an issue for me. I'm just a bit skeptical about the tech test situation so I'm waiting on Octus for a response.

  • GoWMills ⚙Brandon #Gears5⚙ (@GoWMills) reported

    @TeamRespawnTV @GameStop @GearsViking @CoalitionGears @OctusTC @danasissons @nodezero Everyone talking bad about GameStop lol. I always pre order my games and never had an issue. Plus I ordered in store so I won't have the shrink wrap regardless

  • TeamRespawnTV TeamRespawn (@TeamRespawnTV) reported

    @GoWMills @GameStop @GearsViking @CoalitionGears @OctusTC @danasissons @nodezero Your first problem was ordering it from GameStop. They don’t care about anything. Your “new” game probably won’t even have the shrink wrap on it.

  • EssHelios Ess Helios #Gears5 (@EssHelios) reported

    @GoWMills @OctusTC @xFribbo @GearsofWar @ELEAGUETV @TBSNetwork Must be nice to get a reply from the TC when you have an issue 😪

  • Jonny_Dillinger Jonathan Armistead (@Jonny_Dillinger) reported

    @MrHyperrion @CoalitionGears @nodezero @GearsofWar Generally yeah, that’s why I’m asking for confirmation, seems that problem could be fixed

  • WarriorgunS Ross (@WarriorgunS) reported

    Great work @CoalitionGears on fixing the Crimson omen problem that wasn't there and legitimately wasting time creating this piece of shit "inverse omen" my goodness how terrible does that look

  • HailToTheTYRANT HailToTheTYRANT (@HailToTheTYRANT) reported

    @GoWMills @GameStop @GearsViking @CoalitionGears @OctusTC @danasissons @nodezero Just going to say @Gamestop has absolutely Zero care when it comes to customer service, you should have preordered it through Xbox #GetYourRefund Before its too late.

  • DMullin_ DEZ (@DMullin_) reported

    @GearsofWar please fix your matchmaking I do not get any rank up percent when dropping 3 straight mvps w/wins but lose a percent every damn lose 🙃

  • xGhostrider90 xGhostrider90 (@xGhostrider90) reported

    @OctusTC @XboxSupport @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar @majornelson After following this I have no clue what the problem is. Why make it this hard to connect online in the first place. I see from research this has been an issue since KI was online.

  • xGhostrider90 xGhostrider90 (@xGhostrider90) reported

    @XboxSupport @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar @majornelson How is it that Gears of War 4 still has connection issues with PC game Pass. We cant play co-op or online tonight because of your game and its errors. Please provide a fix or refund the days we have been trying to find a fix.

  • SaladinPliskin C McClelland (@SaladinPliskin) reported

    Calling gears of war 5, gears 5 is like giving yourself a nickname.. its cringeworthy and dumb. yea fans short it but the series is what it is. going to have to make a custom cover sleeve to fix the mistake. #gearsofwar @CoalitionGears @GearsViking.

  • Acearoni Adam Woodson (@Acearoni) reported

    So does Gears of War 4 just kill computers because roommate got the PC Game Pass and his gears game crashes constantly, half of MSStore downloads “error”, and now he gets the “:( Blue Screen” multiple times.. @XboxSupport @CoalitionGears

  • Tbone96677077 Tbone (@Tbone96677077) reported

    @CoalitionGears I have 73 achievements on gears 4 and the achievement is at 100% but it’s still locked so I won’t give me Gilded Marcus. please please fix this I’ve seen other people have this problem as-well so please or tell us how to fix

  • EddieArtistic 🇵🇦 Eddie Artistic (@EddieArtistic) reported

    @GearsofWar I like this statue a lot but it’s way too expensive.. 😭 #broken

  • MisterVigilance Joseph P. (@MisterVigilance) reported

    @CoalitionGears This is inaccurate for me. I have 96 achievements on the game but Gilded Marcus does not unlock nor the achievement for the challenge. Hoping you fix this soon. I've updated my game and hard reset my console several times over past two days since the challenge went up.

  • Mehrdad22777550 Mehrdad (@Mehrdad22777550) reported

    @GearsofWar @RahulKohli13 RIP Gears @GearsViking uninteresting characters... like the game has issues on its roots.👎

  • NapalmCryogenix Napalm Cryogenix (@NapalmCryogenix) reported

    @GearsofWar Major audio stuttering issue right now. Makes it unplayable due to obnoxious sounds and leaving me deaf on multiplayer. I haven't seen any fixs. I've restarted my Xbox, deleted and redownloaded, even cleared system cache. Nothing works

  • JoeArber joe arber (@JoeArber) reported

    @EppleSauce92 @CoalitionGears Same problem with me, I got the scion and jd easily enough but Marcus is still locked despite having 100 percent

  • gffmac JazzyGff (@gffmac) reported

    @CoalitionGears I had an issue in Monday, they weren't unlocking. Hard powered off (hold power till shuts down) then update was available and they popped up when game loaded.

  • ibmnegro pedro gonzalez perez (@ibmnegro) reported

  • 76_Glasshouse Edgar Muñoz (@76_Glasshouse) reported
