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.
Flash Freeze Ultimate Upgrade
Jack’s Flash Freeze Ultimate Upgrade is for the Flash ability and it freezes enemies when they’re flashed. This is one of the best abilities in the game. It freezes enemies solid and if you deal enough damage, they shatter.
To unlock the Flash Freeze Ultimate Upgrade, head to the central Old Derrick 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 hatch. Inside the hatch is a collectible which is also the upgrade.
Gears 5 is available for PC and Xbox One.
