The Fabricator is an incredibly advanced piece of technology, capable of producing nearly any material required by the user. Seemingly created by DB Industries CEO Damon Baird at some point during the twenty-five year period following the end of the Locust War, the Fabricator was intended for use in helping the human population of Sera rebuild following the apocalyptic conflict.
Fabricators were invaluable to the Coalition of Ordered Governments in the post-Lambent Pandemic years, allowing them to construct new towns from rubble collected from destroyed cities, as well as the DeeBees labor force required to complete such a monumental undertaking of rebuilding civilization.
Fabricators were also used for military purposes, as JD Fenix and the Outsiders made use of a stolen Fabricator from Settlement 5 to establish turrets and other defensive emplacements during the Swarm crisis.
In Horde 3.0, the Fabricator is where fortifications and, after being upgraded to level 2, weapons can be built. After being upgraded, the Fabricator allows for higher level fortifications to be built, although any existing fortifications built before the upgrade must be manually upgraded. Fortifications and weapons require power, which can be acquired by killing enemies. If a player is killed and their COG Tags have been retrieved by another player, they can be brought to the Fabricator to bring the dead player back into the game.
- The Fabricator in Gears of War 4 is reminiscent of the real-world 3D Printer.
- The mechanism of the Fabricator is equivalent to the Replicator in Star Trek, however, Fabricator needs solid resources to create things while Replicator creates things out of sub-atom.
