Ideas for every occasion.

– Gears 4 Elite Controller – The Gears of War 4 Limited Edition Elite controller is pretty pricey, but packs in a number of Gears-styled features and traits to mimic the gritty aesthetic of the game. It also has Hair Trigger Locks, programmable paddles on the back, and a rubberized grip for extended sessions too.
– Ltd Edition controllers – For those who like the blood-red color and simple Omen design synonymous with the series, the Crimson Omen controller is a great way to show your love for the series. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a controller that pays homage to the latest hero of the Gears of War series, the JD Fenix controller might be for you. Both of these will set you back around $75 and just offer a fresh design on a standard controller.
– The New Pop Vinyl series – If you’re looking for something a little smaller and on the cheaper side, then you may want to take a look at these Pop! Vinyl figures. The popular brand, Funko, has recently released a Gears of War 4 series, including all of the major protagonists from the game, and an angry looking Locust, too. Oh, and there’s a Carmine in there for good measure.
– The book series by Karen Travis – The Gears of War universe actually has a pretty extensive lore, eloquently told in gripping detail by Karen Traviss’ series of books. These tell the stories and background to the world of Sera that the games don’t, and are a great bit of reading for any Gears of War fan.
– Replica Lancer – Who doesn’t want a replica of an assault rifle that has a chainsaw bayonet? Exactly. This beautiful replica from PDP is a 1:1 scale replica, complete with adjustable sight, levers, triggers, and switches.
– Replica Gnasher Shotgun- Though this isn’t quite as official as the PDP replica lancer, this fan-made 3D printed Gnasher is perfect for displaying on a desk. The seller will even customize the stand with your Gamertag, too.
– COG Tags – Worn by every COG soldier out on the field, these COG tags are perfect for any fan who might want to cosplay as their favorite character in the future. Alternatively, they look pretty cool as part of an everyday outfit, too.
– Season Pass – If they love playing Gears of War games online, then you might want to look into grabbing them the season pass for Gears of War 4. It ensures they get to try out the latest maps, as well as a ton of other benefits.
– Pint Glass – Every player needs fuel in both snack and drink form. Whatever they like to drink while they’re playing, this pint glass is the best way to stay hydrated and show your love for the series at the same time.
– Character figures – To celebrate the release of Gears of War 4, McFarlane Toys are releasing a JD Fenix 7″ collectible action figure on Dec. 5. There are Kait and Del versions coming too, but these won’t release until the new year. If they’re a fan of collectibles, this is something they’ll definitely be interested in.
– Shower Curtain – Because why would you want to shield the rest of your bathroom from rogue water droplets with anything other than a Gears of War shower curtain? It even comes with Shower Rings!
– T-Shirt / other clothing – Sometimes, the simple gifts are the best. You can grab the standard Gears of War Omen design on a t-shirt in a range of sizes from a number of different retailers. There are also some more extravagantly designed Gears of War bits of clothing out there too that can be found on the likes of Etsy and eBay.
– Band aids – When a COG Soldier gets injured in the heat of battle, they don’t cry or stop fighting. They throw on a Gears of War-themed band aid and carry on with the fight. Which is exactly what you can do if you ever cut yourself thanks to these.
– phone case – Just about everywhere we go nowadays we take our phones with us. Spruce up your phone with a huge range of different Gears of War designed cases. These vary from the traditional and largely popular Omen design to one of the Gears 4 cover art.
– Artbook – Gears of War 4’s visuals are a bit of a contrast from those previously seen in the series and are one heck of a sight to behold. You can check out the evolution of the environments, characters, and much more in this artbook.
