Gears 5

Exciting Additions
Well Gears 5 recently got its Operation 3: Gridiron update that was very good. It featured two teams, that will fight over a flag. This flag can particularly allow teams to score a touchdown in the opposing teams’ endzone. Flag spawns in random places around the middle of the map as the game starts. Afterward, players can pick it. Its quite similar to Capture the Flag from Halo, but unique in its own way.

Players will be able to score 2 points for a touchdown, 2 points for an elimination victory ( squad wipe). The event is quite competitive and requires a lot of teamwork. Similarly, the game also added Dave Batista, the former WWE wrestler. Well, he has now an in-game skin and his famous finisher of Batista Bomb.
