Gears 5 Fabricator Guide – How to Craft Weapons, Defenses, and Perks

Gears 5 Fabricator Guide

Fabricator in Gears of War is nothing new, especially for the long-time fans of the franchise. If you just jumped into the series with Gears 5 or are just looking to jog up your memory, our Gears 5 Fabricator Guide will help you understand everything you need to know about including its uses, accessing it, and more.

Gears 5 Fabricator

First things first. You can access to Fabricator in the game’s Horde Mode. To start the Horde Mode, you’re required to move the Fabricator. But only powering it up isn’t enough to take full advantage of everything the Fabricator offers. To do that, you must power it up first.

Once powered up, you’ll be able to craft weapons, defensive mechanisms, get perks, and more. But how does one power it up?

Powering Up the Fabricator

To power up the Fabricator, you need to obtain … Power. You can farm Power easily by killing enemies. Upon death, enemies will drop small lightning bolts (Power) that you can pick up by walking over them. However, it’s important to note that dying will cause all your collected Power to disappear so try to deposit as frequently as you can.

In order to deposit Power, you simply need to walk upto the Fabricator and press ‘X’ twice to do so. Once the Fabricator is powered up and running, you’ll be able to do a couple of things with it.

Using the Fabricator

The first thing is crafting weapons as well as defenses and the second thing is acquiring Perks. This is where another important thing comes in to play.

While you’ll be able to craft weapons and defensive mechanisms anytime you want in the game, purchasing the Perks is a totally different story, as it can only be done between the rounds.

If you wish to acquire Perks that give you a variety of different skills to use in combat, you must wait for a round to finish and then rush to the Fabricator. You should’ve enough time to do so.
