It’s noob friendly and TTK is much lower.
Pretty much this...but mid range weapons are a lot more effective. Mid range is still useless in traditional because it takes more shots to bring someone down.

Also mid range weapons are just more predictable to me. I have a much easier time knowing when I’m hitting someone.

I May have to try some MP when it releases then. One thing I hated about Gears MP is people are bullet sponges.

I did always love the Horde modes that was good fun.

Yeah same here. It’s one of the reasons the Gnasher is so unbalanced. When you can take down someone with a mid range weapon who’s trying to charge you from cover to cover, it changes the entire game dynamic. Gnasher is suddenly a weapon that’s only best in some situations.

TTK is perfect for me in arcade because any higher and you can make it to cover once caught out in the open too easily. Honestly if Gears 5 only launched with arcade mode, it would be one of my top 2 games this year.

Wait, so because it launches with more than just arcade it won't be in your top 2?

No. No. Didn’t articulate that correctly. Saying Arcade alone makes it one of my favorite games of 2019. If it has a great campaign, might be one of my top games of the generation. There hasn’t been a single game all gen that’s knocked it out of the park with both single and multiplayer.

Haha, ok, well that makes a bit more sense then. Yeah, I hope the SP is good in this, I like MP in Gears, but for the most part I play games for the campaigns. Arcade was fun, but I've also typically enjoyed traditional gears MP as well. From what I played of the tech test, I am definitely liking the upgraded aiming and shooting systems.

I honestly think that this title will become one of the very best games Xbox has ever made. There is just something about the whole game, the package, the marketing and the general excitement with this that I haven't seen since Halo...

Having played the tech tests, and I hated the MP in Gears 1,2,3 and 4, something clicked with it with me. I honestly really loved it.

Well the MP has scaled down effects on console vs PC per Digital Foundry

Well they tested the online beta of Gears 5. Was that final? I am excited about campaign only other than some horde maybe.

False advertising matters bro!
Don’t many people and corporate entities rely, thrive and flourish on fake news? Makes the world turn, sometimes backwards :p

Glad they'll be showing a glimpse of campaign, they've got a strange marketing strategy going on with this game focusing on specific modes on a per month basis and I'm not particularly a fan of it.
