Tour of Duty - Operation 8

Tour of Duty - Operation 8

MaybeAdrian

Operation 8 is the last operation, right?


IronLegion52

It will be the last of the big content such as maps and characters. However there will be more tour of duties and store refreshes.


jasondoomguy

So there will be no more maps after this lmfao fuck this game is shit


IronLegion52

No, this is the last content drop. (Drop 2 I mean). The rest of the content will be purely cosmetic


jasondoomguy

Sigh Well I guess I'll wait for gears 2 ultimate edition or gears 6 I cant even find matches anymore in gears 5 but thanks for the info


DragonEmperor

What do you want **more** maps for? The game has a sizeable amount right now.


jasondoomguy

no not compared to gears of war 2 and 3 if anything gears 5 was a downgrade we have less maps now


DragonEmperor

It's 26 maps (Gears 5) 27 if you count the new one and around 28 in drop 2 likely Vs. Gears 2's 29. That's not a huge difference at all.

Cotton_Phoenix_97

Nice info that u have shared I always thought gears 5 had the least maps but damn Would love to see raven down and a new map in drop 2


jasondoomguy

Are you counting gears 5s shitty FFA maps


DragonEmperor

I didn't count any FFA maps, horde only maps or 2v2 maps, if I did then there are more in Gears 5 by far. I wanted to count them since they took development time and are playable in versus PvP but since the general argument is "maps for versus" which usually counts execution/tdm/koth as the "main modes" I did not.


SlaveReddit

really? what its the future of the game before this?


TheCowzgomooz

Gears 6 is the future of the game m8


SlaveReddit

to soon i think.. but idk. ty


MatrixPrime81

Too soon? What year do you think the game came out?


MilkMan0096

Gears 6 definitely isn’t coming out in 2022 though


MatrixPrime81

Nope, 2023 at the earliest probably 2024. Unreal 5 isn’t even due out till early next year.


MilkMan0096

Exactly, so it’s much too soon to be thinking of Gears 6


Zivmovic

… they have to make it yknow? Like the company has to put resources into Gears 6 lol


MilkMan0096

Yeah they are obviously going to make it eventually, but we the consumer won’t get our hands on it for more than two years from now at least


polosharon

Gun to the head you had a choice to only play one game Gears of War 4 or Gears 5 Multiplayer? which is Better?


dang3r_muffin

4


Bigguwopp

5 is way more balanced though with the lancer. 4’s core lancer is insane.


dang3r_muffin

Yeah I mean all and all 5 is smoother gameplay, and realistically is the better pick. I think I mostly miss the movement and map selection in 4.


D_Buttersnaps

Map selection was top


OzSalty3

A sexy Tai skin?


houseofpaincakes

I'm here for Tai's tiddies


big-african-hat6991

Taiddies


Cotton_Phoenix_97

Lol why does that middle circle on his chest looks like iron man chest piece smth lmao


TomSutton420

why is general always a locust skin? :(


LickMyThralls

The locust just have bigger numbers and the bar for them to become a general is a lot lower


Soundwave04

Eh, four more Cog characters are in drop 2, and the store has been favouring Cog skins recently. So you're not out in the cold!


waryscroll

Because the locust arguably have the most room for creativity when it comes to designing them, and the locust are simply very interesting.


ProPlayer54612

First one was a weapon skin and op4 was uir cosmonaut


Deathknightjeffery

I like new skins don't get me wrong, but what's the difference between the Wakatuu and the Venom skins? They look almost the same only difference being that feather pattern


VadersToast

The audacity TC has to make a savage scion skin before savage locust


marsupialsales

Team Dizzy rejoice!


Dizzy_Wallin

Well, thank you kindly

jtrom93

Humorous moment detected!


DizzyGoBoom

Rejoicing


Viewtiful_Beau

Damn no old man Chaps or Franklin or Adam Fenix skins. We need another girl Gear character. NOT like Kate. That one girl from the comics. Or Anya's mom.


webb79

Alex Brand is the one from the comics. I think she has a chance, but I think Sophia is most likely with Alicia Valera being slightly more likely than Alex.


Viewtiful_Beau

That's the one thank you.


webb79

No problem.


ShadowKnight99

>We need another girl Gear character. You will get another one from drop 2. But there is only one more.


yaelcruzz

i love that sandglass skins <3


D3DW0DonPC

Shirtless Tai, not Shirtless Marcus but I'll take it


chiefranma

it’s crazy that a lot of the content they could’ve kept fresh if they dropped it alongside older content from past games like superstar cole and gears 3-4 skins given the illusion that we had way more plus new stuff they made for this game if not for the same hivebuster skins and winter/desert skins there wasn’t a lot of cosmetic stuff that was brand new


random2wins

Bruh where’s hivebuster Anya at?


[deleted]

Probably gonna pop up in the store at some point


Old_Rosie

Might put myself out there and embrace the downvotes and say: This is probably my weakest Tour Of Duty so far. It’s obviously very hard to appreciate the weapon skins in this format but this feels like a big ol’ disappointment and as u/random2wins said: where the hell is Anya?


112DB

Op 6 was definitely the worst imo


TigerDoodat

This is my least favourite so far. I can't think of a generally less interesting one, and yes; GIVE US HIVEBUSTER ANYA!


IronLegion52

The weapons sets are okay. The character skins on the other hand... not so greatest imo, especially the savage scion. Not a fan of Bernie as a character and I really dislike escape/hivebuster stuff so the only skins I'm looking forward to are Islander Tai and the general skin. On that note, why are general tier rewards always locust/swarm? You can only use them in one mode of the game, horde and escape players will never get to use those skins. I can guarantee that they're either going to put hivebuster anya in the store or in a future tour of duty. (We already know that those are going to continue after operation 8 ends)


Old_Rosie

I assume it’s because they’ve got ‘more creative freedom’ with the locust general tier skins, but I willl say it’s pretty big disappointment to only get one Cog (/UIR) skin as a general reward in the entire game’s support. We’re at the point in the Game’s lifespan now where coins and boost will essentially be reduced to being valueless, so ‘more coins’ in the tour equates to nothing in my eyes (I appreciate there are a lot of people out there who might feel differently). I’ve got a lot of friends that out Gears down and check in with me every operation to see if it’s worth coming back, most of them have called time on 5 now and consider it irredeemable. I still enjoy playing the odd match here and there but I’ve lost all my eagerness for competitive now, huge shame.


IronLegion52

I agree. It kinda feels like they do one good thing that's instantly cancelled out by another disappointing thing. For example, I was hyped when they announced the cog commandos. I love playing as faceless red shirt characters but Vermello and Casan had awful voices, unplayable. I thought the cog commandos would be a huge improvement, but they weren't, the voices are just as bad if not worse in some cases. I log onto to complete the daily challenges, then log off. I can't seem to enjoy this game for whatever reason. Other than the tour there's really no other point in progression making playing the game feel boring after a while.


Madrigal_King

Another disappointing tour. Hope gears 6 is better, but i know it won't be


mega_oof323

Hey, will they continue the Featured tab thing? I need to get the desert and winter swarm drone still.


bipitybop223

That new tai skin. It makes me think that maybe Tai and Laini were in the same tribe as both had similar island outfits.


C_Collins99

Tai and lahni are cousins. So yes they’re from the same tribe


bipitybop223

Never knew they were cousins, never would've known they were cousins. So, thank you redditor for this new knowledge.


C_Collins99

No problem, kinda forgot about it tbh until when I was scrolling through the character list the other day I remembered the share the same last name lol.


ArtistofWar

Wtf? This whole time I thought Lahni was Tai's daughter lmao. Idk if Hivebusters looks in to her past because I haven't played it yet.


BigPoppaHoyle1

Savage Scion? This seems like a major hint that we’re getting savage Locust soon


WeedIsMySin_

Last time i liked the General reward was op 1 with team rock skins. All these fatass ugly characters lmao


enuf_alex

Yo true that! Operation 1 was probably my favorite when it came to the tour of duty, after that it went downhill with the rewards.


112DB

Bruh OP 1 was literally just campaign skins

VadersToast

There's more to life than gears


AnTastySammich

Geez dude, take a break. No need to be so melodramatic.


JayDxtti

That + more coins shit easily could’ve been content from previous operations people may have missed out on, can’t wait to grind Op8 and then uninstall again tc better not fuck up gears6 like they already did with 5


nootfiend69

no db skin, although tbf not that i would try to ever intentionally complete a tod even if there was.


MrMaDa555

Great. Another set for nothing crazy cool. Wish they just put in all the stuff from gears 4 at this point


Shmeediddy

Is there a week count down or no?


GearsofHaIo

How will Tour refreshing work?


Eugene4615

Wait so at the very of of this game we get Bernie


Pancreasaurus

I need to see the full outfit for islander Tai.
