Swarm vs. Locust


Gears of War 4 has finally released and sees players battling it out with the Swarm. Though we’d seen the Lambent variation of the Locust in previous games these were only mutated and infected versions of the creatures we were so used to killing. Of course, with a new enemy fresh on the scene after countless years of Locust rule, the obvious question arises of how the Swarm stack up against their counterparts, so we decided to answer that for you.

Before we go any further, we’re going to drop a quick spoiler warning here. While we won’t necessarily be jumping into any major plot points of Gears of War 4, the Swarm can be a spoiler-sensitive topic. If you want to enjoy Gears of War 4 spoiler-free, we advise turning back now and returning later to check out our comparison.
