Gears 5 new feature

Gears 5 Title Update 2 available for download, full patch notes revealed

The Coalition has released a new update for Gears 5. According to the release notes, title update 2 brings improvements to the Boomshot and Flashbangs. It also fixes a number of bugs and issues that the players have reported.

Going into more details, this patch resolves an issue causing the Gnasher to have bullet magnetism while ADS when Aim Assist is disabled. It also brings a full fix for the drop weapon exploit, including re-enabling weapon drops. Moreover, it fixes a bug that could cause players to be perma-flashed in a match.

As said, this update brings improvements to both Boomshot and Flashbangs. For instance, it improves the consistency of the Boomshot with changes to the behavior of the secondary ‘bomblets’. It also tweaks flashbangs so they can no longer affect players through cover.

Steam and the Microsoft Store will download this patch the next time you launch their clients. You can also find below its complete changelog.
