We know there’s a fair few of you out there pushing to hit that Re-Up 10 so you can take Gilded RAAM with you into Gears 5.

The Gilded RAAM Challenge ends in just 17 days, so to help you out, we’re turning on 4XP across Versus AND Horde for the remainder of the challenge period beginning Tuesday, May 28thRead up on the entire Challenge here.

Next Tuesday, we’re also switching up our Versus and Horde events available in Public Play too.


Golden Gun will be replaced with Classic OSOK (Headshots Only Mode).


Horde Mania will leave public matchmaking in place of Juvie Madness.

4XP will also apply to both playlists. If you’d prefer to get your 4XP Horde fix a different way, don’t forget that EVERY Horde variant is available for use in Private Match by changing the Enemy List found in Match Options.
