Guide Gears 5 : location of the Weapons Relic | Gears 5 has an impressive arsenal of weapons to bring down the Locust Swarm, the main enemy since the beginning of the series, but there are also weapons hidden throughout the game world that will give you even more firepower if you can find them. These weapons are called Relics and are to all intents and purposes secret weapons that provide more power and reliability than standard weapons.
Some of these relic weapons offer unique buff that can make your journey easier and more fun. While searching for relic weapons, keep in mind that they are usually marked with a Crimson Omen (the Gears logo) nearby.
Finding these weapons also affects your objectives, in fact, once you've found the relic weapons in Gears 5 , you can get the relic hunter achievement by equipping three at a time and killing an enemy with every secret weapon found in the game.
In the game there are 17 relic weapons. Here are their positions.
