I always thought that the addition of Batista to Gears 5 was a little out of the ordinary. While yes, he has been an advocate to play Marcus Fenix in the potential movie adaption of the series. However, there wasn’t really any connection to the game rather than that. To top that off, I always wondered if The Coalition would add his infamous Batista Bomb move. Well, we can wonder no longer.

Over on the Xbox Youtube channel, a new video was uploaded a couple of days ago introducing the famous actor/wrestler’s finishing move. The Batista Bomb has been added to Gears 5! You can take a look for yourself in the trailer below.

Players who hop into any mode this weekend will receive the Batista Bomb move for free.

While I first thought that the addition of the actor/wrestler was a little ridiculous, I have grown to love the ridiculousness of Gears 5 multiplayer. The campaigns have always tried to stay gritty, but as the games have progressed, The Coalition has gotten more and more creative with the online experience. I mean, there has to be a little ridiculousness when you are popping grubs heads like watermelons and screaming “oh yeah” like the Kool-Aid man.

Gears 5 is available right now for PC and Xbox One. The game was one of my favorites in the series, but don’t take just my word for it.
