The Gears 5 Xbox achievements have been revealed, and the holy grail of challenges has been presented. This is of course the "Seriously 5.0 – Chapter 1" achievement. For context, the Seriously title has always been a grueling option to earn when playing any of the titles in the franchise.

It has always continued to get harder, and that’s the case here again in this fifth main entry. The description is as follows “Complete Insane Campaign, Master Horde & Escape Launch Maps & Characters, Get 20 Re-Ups and reach General in a Tour of Duty”.

It will grant you 100 gamerscore if you manage to earn this. Breaking it down you’ll need to finish a run of campaign on Insane difficulty. You need to reach the mastery ranking for Horde and Escape maps at launch, including for the characters. The twenty re-ups will likely take the longest as it’s for prestiging in the game twenty times.

That means you need to reach the max multiplayer level, start over, and do that twenty times. Then, in the Tour of Duty mode you must hit General rank. Should be a good challenge for the most hardcore of players within this series.
