The Operation 1 characters are COG Gear, DeeBee, Warden, and General RAAM. Hero COG Soldier has new abilities for Horde, Escape and Arcade modes. The two villains and Hero DeeBee all have Arcade abilities.
There are a few ways to unlock Gears 5 characters, the most straightforward one being to pay for them. All the characters are worth 500 iron that equals to about $4.99. The players that have been earning iron by completing weekly challenges or playing the game can now use it to pick up their favourite characters.
Another method to unlock Gears 5 character is through Totems. Players will have to equip specific totems for the character they’re trying to get. Each totem has five objectives to it. While the first four objectives are common to all four totems, the fifth objective is specifically designed to the character a player is going after.
