Gears 5 Adds Batista's Old WWE Finisher In Free DLC

Break some skulls on PC and Xbox One.


Guardians of the Galaxy star and professional WWE wrestler Dave Bastista was supposed to have been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this week, but due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Hall of Fame ceremony has been delayed indefinitely. In honor of the award Batista should have received, The Coalition is adding the wrestler’s famous Batista Bomb finisher to Gears 5 in a free DLC update.

Gears 5 already has a variety of execution animations in the multiplayer mode, but nothing comes close to the savageness of the Batista Bomb. While in real life Batista used this move to knock down his opponents, the game takes it to a whole other level with the enemies exploding on impact.
