Gears of War 4 Tenth Anniversary Gear Pack celebrates the franchise's birthday

Weapons, in-game events, and more await fans.


November 7 marks 10 years since Gears of War stormed Xbox 360, and Microsoft and Gears of War 4 developer The Coalition are celebrating with the Gears of War 4 Tenth Anniversary Gear Pack.

The Coalition's community manager, Liam Ashley, detailed the contents of the DLC package in a post on You obtain the pack by cashing in packs of 200 credits earned in-game.

"Obtainable exclusively through gameplay, each 200 Credit pack contains one 10 Years of Gears customization item, one 10 Years of Gears Emblem or bounty, and a random card from the Gears of War 4 Launch Series of Cards," Ashley wrote.

The full list of content follows:

  • Gary Carmine Character
  • Anthony Carmine Longshot
  • Benjamin Carmine Gnasher
  • Clayton Carmine Lancer
  • 10 Years of Gears Lancer
  • 10 Years of Gears Hammerburst
  • 10 Years of Gears Retro Lancer
  • 10 Years of Gears Markza Mk. 1
  • 10 Years of Gears Enforcer
  • Gary Carmine Emblem
  • 10 Years of Gears Emblem
  • 5 Bounties, each themed to a Gears of War game

Gears of War 4's Tenth Anniversary Gear Pack arrives on November 7.

As another celebration surprise, The Coalition announced the return of two fan-favorite playlists: One Shot, One Kill, a sniping-focused mode where you play with a Longshot plus an EMBAR weapon available for pickup in the arena; and Gnashers-Only King of the Hill, a close-quarters-focused mode that centers on the Gnasher weapon.

"We’ll be continuing to listen to your thoughts and feedback about Gears of War 4. We can’t wait to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Gears of War next week with all of you. Here’s to many more years of Gears," Ashley concluded.
