Ever since Gears 5 was launched, it has been plagued by countless bugs, as well as stability and connectivity issues.

One serious bug that has existed ever since the game’s launch is one that prevents players from getting their achievements.

This bug only seems to happen when players go through the campaign in higher difficulties.

The bug varies from player to player, but one common consensus is that they cannot get 100% of them (usually stuck at around ~90%).

While The Coalition has indeed been actively trying to solve the problems, working on the servers without shutting them down isn’t exactly easy.

Even the game developers admitted that during the maintenance, players may experience issues.

These issues may also include disconnects during multiplayer or co-op matches.

Gears 5 players will be getting their achievements soon

In a recent post where a The Coalition developer responded, they stated that they have finally come up with a solution:

We are currently rolling out a progression catch-up on Campaign Progress, Collectibles and related Achievements for impacted players.
This is an extensive rollout, and may take up to 24 hours to complete. Thank you for your patience.

It would seem that The Coalition is indeed working a solution for the problem.

The problem, however, is that the solution they are taking seems to be more of a temporary solution for those that have already faced the issue.

No mention of whether the issue will continue to appear was made, so only time will tell how things will work out.

Whichever the case, they did mention that the problem will take up to 24h to sort itself out.

This means that if you too are having this problem, you’ll just have to be a little more patient until the fix gets applied.

Gears 5 has been met with mixed reviews so far, as it was praised for the innovations, but criticized for the many bugs present at launch.
