One of the newest group of firearms introduced in Gears 5 that players can utilize in their fight against the Locust and Swarm are known as relic weapons. These relic weapons are pieces of equipment from the past and pack some nasty punches for whoever is on the receiving end of their munitions.
These relic weapons are scattered throughout various areas you will travel through in your playthrough of the Gears 5 campaign. Their locations are marked by the signature Crimson Gear Omen that has been synonymous with the popular franchise throughout its life.
