Re-up update: 24 hours on

Hello everyone,

Yesterday we released our re-up update across Gears 5. When we released the update, we split it into two parts:

  • Part 1 was to update everyone’s accounts to the correct re-up and level, as well as introduce the new re-up xp requirements per level.
  • Part 2 would then provide the retroactive awards for re-ups you’d gained previously.

As we started on part 2, we ran into a service issue which impacted the game and as a result we saw the following issues:

  • Players who had yet to login had yet to be given the correct re-up and level. (Fixed)
  • Players would be unable to use their skill cards across PvE content. (Fixed)
  • Players would be unable to access their customization options at all. (Fixed)
  • Players would encounter store purchasing issues.

However, we’d like to let you know that we’re still aware of the following issues in-game:

  • Users who were re-up 24 and 25 prior to the update will run into the following issues. If you are seeing these issues please submit a ticket to :
    • Their re-up will have been removed.
    • Their cards and medal progress won’t work.
  • Potential store issues with a purchase may still occur. If you feel like you’ve experienced any issues with your purchase, please submit a ticket to

When we published the re-up article last Thursday, we provided a re-up 1 – 50 table and the associated rewards, when the update went live yesterday some users correctly mentioned about some rewards they didn’t receive. This was due to a mix-up in the rewards and to help clear up the confusion here is the revised re-up table:
