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.
In Gears 5, Jack can learn a huge range of abilities but his best ones, the Ultimate Upgrades have to be found in the game world.
Jack Brawler Ultimate Upgrade
Jack’s Brawler Ultimate Upgrade is for the Stim ability and it means that melee damage is tripled while Stimmed. It definitely comes in handy for meleeing your way out of a group of Swarm when you’re seriously outnumbered.
To unlock the Brawler Ultimate Upgrade, head to the Condor Crash site in Act 2, Chapter 4. The site is in the east of the map.
Once there, dismount the skiff and head into the wreckage. You’ll have to deal with a wave of enemies. Once they’re done, you’ll be free to grab the upgrade.
Look for a safe. Once you find it, have Jack open it and inside you’ll find some Stim. Pick them up and you’ll unlock the Brawler Ultimate Upgrade.
Gears 5 is available on PC and Xbox One.
