With Gears 5 releasing soon and taking the series forward after the last game released in 2016, it’s a good time to look back on some of the best moments in the series. It’s been a crazy ride so far but here are 15 of the best moments from the entire series (yes, even Judgment). Warning: Spoilers for nearly every important moment in the series await.
The Berserker – Gears of War
In 2006, Gears of War introduced arguably one of the most terrifying enemies with the Berserker. And the encounter was truly something special – bullets had no effect on its plating. One charge and you were a goner with the encounter taking place in a closed space. However, since the Berserker was blind, you could use sound to redirect it and knock down walls to escape. This led to the next best thing about Gears – using the Hammer of Dawn and frying the Berserker.
