* Several of the weapon executions are pretty brutal but the Lancer and Scorcher executions take the cake. To wit,
** Lancer: The downed player is kicked over onto their back, then the chainsaw bayonet of the Lancer is thrust onto the downed player's chest at an angle and activated, resulting in blood and small chunks of flesh being thrown into the executioner's face.
** Scorcher: The player can jab the Scorcher's nozzle into a downed enemy and shoot fire into their body, which causes flames to erupt from their eyes and mouth. If this isn't enough, there's also screams of pain from the victim as well.

* Gears 4 introduces windflares, a new form of deadly weather. The opening non-prologue cutscene of the game makes for an appropriately-startling introduction to this phenomenon; Kaite blasts a recon drone, Del remarks that there's surprisingly no alarm, only for a low, air-raid-style siren to start blaring in the nearby COG outpost... and then your squadmates notice the massive ''wall' of shredding wind and rabid lightning rolling in from the left, ''consuming'' the forest in its path and heading for the COG base... and ''you''.

** Making this all the more horrifying is that they repopulate by [[spoiler:kidnapping humans and putting them in pods that turn them to their ranks]].

** On top of all this there's the horrifying truth behind their origin... [[spoiler: they're not a new species. They're The Locust reborn and modified from when the device from Gears of War 3 supposedly killed them.]]

*** No, the worst thing is that raping them is ''necessary'', because they really are just mindless killing machines. They have to be tied down in order to actually breed. Any Locust that got close to one otherwise would only get ripped apart.
** Oh, and the way you're introduced to them? One of your random AI partners completely loses his shit, says "ScrewThisImOuttaHere" and runs into a convenient hallway, only to get pounced upon by the Berserker and '''eaten alive'''. All that remains of him when you go into the hallway is a bloody mass of leftover flesh and bones. The scene in question is effective enough that it's one of the rare occasions on which the spilling of way more blood than could possibly fit in a human body is [[AvertedTrope not in any way]] [[{{Narm}} narmful]].

*** The Ultimate Edition makes use of the shadows to show us exactly what's happening. You see every detail of the Berserker tearing apart every inch of soldier's body.

* Tai is stated to be virtually unkillable. [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat He is shown to have survived many things that should've straight up killed him]], and [[HoldTheLine he got in a direct chainsaw duel with Skorge to give you time to make it to your objective.]] Turns out, he's not dead, and when you rescue him from the Locust, Marcus tosses him a shotgun. [[spoiler: And Tai, who is visibly ''broken'' after only a few hours in Locust custody, blows his own head off without so much as a word.]] Which leaves you to question - ''what the [[PrecisionFStrike fuck]]'' did the Locust [[FridgeHorror do to him]] to cause [[DrivenToSuicide that]]? ''What did they make him see?''

** Even while playing as one in the Beast multiplayer mode, you still can't help but consider the opposing side's perspective as you completely annihilate every Stranded and COG soldier. Oh, and you can break through barricades with complete ease. Bad news for any human in your path.
