Gears of War fans have plenty of reason to be excited as Gears 5 is here. Starring Kait Diaz, Del Walker, JD Fenix and, of course, Marcus Fenix, the latest entry in the franchise continues the story established in Gears of War 4. Set 25-years or so after Gears of War 3, it was revealed that the Locust didn’t die and had instead evolved into the Swarm.
In Gears 5, Kait is seeking answers to her lineage, especially her connection to the Locust. Humanity is facing all-out war with the Swarm and maybe figuring out who Kait is, holds the key to stopping the Swarm once and for all.
Jack is your handy, robot sidekick in Gears 5 and he has quite a few skills and abilities to learn. New skills are found throughout the game while upgrades are unlocked by spending components.
Upgrade Jack Gears 5
In Gears 5, Jack has 11 abilities spread across assault, support and passive. Each ability has four upgrades; three having to be bought with components and one ‘ultimate’ ability found in the game world.
The abilities are; Flash, Pulse, Health, Shock Trap, Stim, Stealth, Hijack, Cloak, Zapper, Barrier and Core. The total cost to fully upgrade each of the 11 abilities is 273 components. There are 289 components in total, so you don’t need to find them all to fully upgrade Jack.
Jack’s abilities give you some great bonuses and tactical options when playing so it’s certainly worth making sure you hunt down the components.

Gears 5 is available for PC and Xbox One.
