Gears 5 is finally live in one way or another on Xbox One and PC and many players are now diving into the action to check out the new campaign and Escape mode, alongside the iconic Horde and Versus multiplayer modes. Here’s everything you need to know about what the max level cap is in Gears 5.
Gears 5 Max Level Cap
Let’s cut right to the chase here. The max level cap for Gears 5’s multiplayer is level 100, as it has been in previous entries in the series. This is the number rank that appears next to your name and character’s face in any multiplayer lobby, as well as in the top-right corner of the screen on any menu or lobby screens.
This leveling system is used across all of Gears 5’s multiplayer modes, meaning if you excel in Horde but not Versus multiplayer, you’ll be able to still grind towards that max level cap in Horde.
That being said, it is worth noting that if you’re going to be diving into Gears 5’s Ranked Play in Versus Multiplayer, this uses Skill Ratings and a Divisions Ranking System to provide the best matchmaking experience possible.
This is to provide a more balanced, competitive experience in Ranked than is possible in Arcade.

- Play the Right Versus Mode (Objective-Based)
We actually have a complete guide running you through a number of tips to help you level up fast in Gears 5 which you can check out, but if you’re looking for a few quick tidbits to help you reach that max level cap faster, we’ve shared a few of them down below.
First off, make sure you’re playing the right game mode for you. If you’re better at Horde with your friends than normal Versus, spend your time playing this. Similarly, if you’re playing Versus, make sure you’re playing something that has a big objective focus, like King of the Hill or Escalation.
