Pvt. Augustus “Cole Train” Cole needs no introduction when it comes to the Gears of War series.

Gears Tactics Augustus “Cole Train” Cole

To unlock Cole Train in Gears Tactics, you need to have the Thrashball Core Character Pack DLC installed. You can check that by opening up the Gears Tactics game page in your Steam’s library and looking under the installed DLC.

With the DLC installed, you will need to play through the game until Act 1, Mission 4 after which you will unlock Cole Train. Belonging to Vanguard class, Augustus “Cole Train” Cole brings a few decent buffs to your squad which include:

  • Bloodbath: Restore +10% of your max HP after every kill
  • Blitz: Not taking a hit in the previous turn gives you +50% chance of receiving an additional AP
  • Double Down: Taking a shot increases damage by +5% in the same turn. Stacks up to 3x times

Other than that, Cole Train does not play a vital role in the story of the game. You can consider him one of the generic NPCs whom you are to rescue and recruit. Based on the nostalgia factor, however, fans of the original GoW series will be delighted to see him return to the game.
