Gears 5 flash grenades drive many players mad

The long-expected Gears of War 5 has finally arrived. Generally, gamers are satisfied with the new product. The graphics and the overall gaming experience are top-notch.

However, several players reported a very annoying issue in Gears 5. Flash grenades are driving players insane. Flashbangs are too many and too strong in this new game, according to quite a few people.

One player reported the following on the official forum:

I actually had to stop playing the gow5 as I have gotten sick (literally) from playing the game just a few hours at a time.

This is a major problem that can even affect the health of gamers. Also, Gears 5 is not friendly to those who suffer from epilepsy.

Flash grenades are ruining the gaming experience for many

Moreover, users encountered this problem in the horde mode. Here, one player can launch several flash grenades, one after another.

What’s worse, developers didn’t correct this issue after the feedback from testers. So, players will have to deal with flashes in the future as well.

However, flash grenades are important in the game so developers should keep them. A solution would be to diminish the brightness of these weapons. They will still be efficient, but not as annoying as before.

As a workaround, you can change some brightness settings of your display but this could affect your gaming experience.

It remains to be seen how developers will try to solve this issue if they will try at all.
