What's on your mind?
With Gears 5 out, the swarm have had a revamp from looking like anthropomorphic lobsters to actually looking like anthropomorphic lobsters that can use your head as golf ball.
The standard units like drones, hunters, and grenadiers, have all been made to look actually terrifying. Some have taken to bending bits of metal into helmets and armour, whilst others have had their gender changed. But whilst this is all good... there is the slight problem of that the swarm are lacking a wide variety of units.
The locust had the standard drone that then sub-divided into grenadiers, snipers, hunters, flame grenadiers, flame drones, miners and beast riders. Then they had the Kantus and armoured kantus, the boomer, the thumper, the maulers, the butchers, the flame boomers. Along with all their savage counterparts. The brumaks, the tickers, the wretches, the seeders, the corpsers, the reavers, krill, rock worms, bloodmounts, and more that I can’t remember the names of.
To put it simple... the swarm are meh when it comes to the variety of combat units. They have drones, grenadiers, snipers, hunters, Imagos, elite drones and they have scions or the crystal locust with boomshots, dropshots, mulchers , buzzkills and salvos. Then there’s the pouncers, snatchers, carriers, juvies/poppers, swarmuks, a kraken (currently fried calamari), leeches and the infected DeeBees. Not interesting when you compare the two.
So hears are some ideas for swarm who could cause havoc on the battlefield.
Swarm Rager: Like the locust rager, they can transform into near unstoppable monsters that can slash with sharp claws. When in pre-rage form the would use either the breech shot or a new weapon entirely.
Swarm Resurrecters: These are drones that have an ability to resurrect dead or near dead swarm to fight once more. Their ability can only work if the body is completely intact (no headless chicken swarm, thank you). This means targeting them first would be priority. The would carry a Gorgon pistol or something new.
Creepers: A giant fly like insect that can shot quills and can blend into it’s surroundings, but is weak to most weapons.
Crawlers: A spider like creature that uses webbing to capture it’s victim. It is the height of a man and is quite durable when under fire.
Swarm Sirens: A unique verity of drone that has a tail instead of legs and is located in water or in lakes with thin ice. The carry a harpoon like weapon or nothing and drag those unfortunate enough, under water or of boats.
Swarm Bruiser: A heavily armoured enemy that acts like both a boomer and berserker. The can shoot at with a heavy weapon before charging at you. They would carry any heavy weapon.
Swarm Knights: A heavily armoured foe that uses a breaker mace, a cleaver, a flail, a boomshield and other melee weapon. They would be the non-Scion version of the wardens. They would be field commanders and would show higher thinking. When combined with the resurrecters, they can become almost unstoppable. They are covered in full metal armour.
Basilisks: A serpent like creature that acts like a mini boss. They attack with a venomous spit that can cause the player to become stuck for 30 seconds. Being stuck is a death sentence if their are other enemies about that will continue to shot you.
Swarm Warlocks/Witches: A tall, kantus like variant of a drone with the ability to teleport a short distance, use poison/ink grenades, and cast powerful illusions that can cause the player to see multiple of them. They appear in gas mines or where there is a high concentration of hallucinogenic fungi spores.
Prowlers: A four legged beast that can be used as a mount in cavalry units. They have claws and quills to attack people with.
That is just a few ideas for the swarm and how they can be made both more of a problematic enemy and how they can look terrifying and not like lobsters.
Thank you for reading.

The lancer got nerfed, how does everyone feel?
What kind of changes would u like to see in future updates or instalments of the series?
Del or JD?
So when we go down to the secret lab where the locust were finally perfected, where Niles freezes everything and everyone we see regular Gears frozen. I found that weird because usually the Onyx Guard is all about the secret shit, but not in this case. Nothing major I just found it weird that regular Gears were stationed in the lab, a good amount of gears too.
Something I just learned is that if you switch weapons for Marcus's custom lancer, it'll have the 50 round mag from gow 4. Just something I found cool.
Bring back old maps like blood drive and security for public games. Fix wall bouncing, no more kills for both team mates! Its your kill only. You put the enemy down, its urs. You kill the enemy, its yours. It isnt fun if assists are kills too! I paid for the game and dont like it. Im on gears 4 till i see that change.
