The latest news from trustworthy dataminers reveals that the next Heirloom is “likely” to be a sword-like weapon for Crypto, along with new information on the previously leaked bow weapon.
Apex Legends developers, Respawn Entertainment, have seen a massive surge in their player base within Season 8. After releasing on Steam in November 2020 and Nintendo Switch in March 2021, Apex is at an all-time high leaving even more players hungry for leaks and information surrounding future content.
Heirlooms were once rare in Apex, as Wraith was the only Legend to possess one back when the game was first released. Now, in season 8, nine Legends have Heirlooms and the quest to find who’s Heirloom is next is very much still a topic of intrigue.
Although Apex news has been slow as of recent, new leaks broke out yesterday suggesting a possible plan for Crypto’s Heirloom to enter the game next.
Dataminers @Biast12 and @Someonewholeaks are trustworthy sources who have been responsible for leaks that have come to fruition such as Bangalore’s heirloom. However, this is of course all speculation according to datamined code in the game’s files, so take it with a pinch of salt.
Although many believe it could still be Wattson, as chronologically it would make sense for her to receive an Heirloom next, new information suggests there is more credibility behind a Crypto Heirloom.
Biast revealed that code in the game’s files presented Crypto’s Heirloom as a ‘katana’-esc weapon, which is ultimately more information than what is currently known about Wattson’s.
Although there is no render or leaked image of this Heirloom, Biast did post an image of this traditional Korean weapon called a “Jikdo”, which is a good reference for what we could be seeing when it is finally released.
Although there is no confirmed time frame for when this Heirloom will be available, it is likely that it will be added in the next collection event, after both the War Games takeover and recently delayed Chinatown Market sale.
New Bow Weapon
As well as this Heirloom leak, we also received further information surrounding the new compound bow weapon that was leaked a while back.
Dataminer @HumanSAS_ recently shared more information on the new bow weapon on Twitter and YouTube, revealing that it will belong to the marksman class, taking the same ammo as snipers.
This gives us a rough idea as to the type of damage output and role this weapon will be utilising, taking on a more sniper-oriented play-style.
The bow supposedly has two modes, perhaps a single and burst mode much like other weapons in the game. However, this is again speculation and the two modes feature with the bow could be completely exclusive to this particular weapon.
It is not clear as to when we will be seeing this new weapon or even Crypto’s Heirloom. However, as Season 8 will be ending within a month, it is likely this new content will be arriving in the next couple seasons.
Perhaps we will see the bow in a LTM next season, as players know Respawn like to test new content in these limited time modes before they release as a sort of public play-test.

Best FOV settings for Halo Infinite
Here are the best FOV settings for Halo Infinite, no matter your platform or whether you play on controller or mouse and keyboard.
Halo Infinite includes a Field of View slider on both consoles and PC, allowing players to see much more of what’s around them. However, having the wrong settings can completely throw your game off, so here are the best FOV settings for Halo Infinite.
While Warzone’s console community has been crying out for a Field of View slider, Halo Infinite gives Xbox players the option to change their FOV. This allows players to change how much they can see in front of them, expanding their peripheral view.
A higher FOV is generally regarded as more effective than a lower, as you can spot enemies at the edge of their screen that would usually be cut off.
Here are the best FOV settings for Halo Infinite on both Xbox consoles and PC.
- How to change FOV in Halo Infinite
- Best FOV settings for Halo Infinite on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S
- Best FOV settings for Halo Infinite on PC
- Best FOV for Halo Infinite on controller
- Best FOV for Halo Infinite on mouse and keyboard
How to change FOV in Halo Infinite
Whether you play Halo Infinite on Xbox One, Series X|S, or PC, you can change your FOV. To do this, you simply need to load up the game’s settings and adjust to slider to suit your preference.

Here’s a step-by-step guide:
- Launch Halo Infinite
- Open up ‘settings’
- Select the ‘video’ tab
- Change the Field of View slider to suit your preference
Best FOV for Halo Infinite on Xbox One & Series X|S
While having a high FOV can be a significant improvement, it also comes with its own drawbacks.
The main drawback to having a high FOV is performance. Cranking your FOV to max will force the game to display much more information on-screen, which will be taxing on your system. It’s all about striking a balance – are you willing to sacrifice frame rate for a higher FOV?
With this in mind, here are the recommend Fields of View for both Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S Halo Infinite X|S.
Best Xbox One FOV
If you’re playing Halo Infinite on the original Xbox One, the game will likely struggle to handle the higher FOVs. We would recommend keeping your FOV in the region of 85-95.
80 is quite low for a FOV, but 90 is the perfect sweet spot that combines the benefits of a wider view without a huge hit to your performance.
Best Xbox Series X|S FOV
Fortunately, both the Xbox Series X and S consoles are significantly more powerful than the Xbox One. So if you’re playing Halo Infinite on the new generation of consoles, you should be able to comfortably run the game on 100-110 FOV.
This will give Halo Infinite a significantly wider Field of View without pushing the Xbox Series X|S to the max and affecting frames. However, if you don’t mind an extremely high FOV, you can keep cranking it and seeing how it affects performance.
Best FOV for Halo Infinite on PC
Unlike the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, there’s no way to give a definite recommendation.
If you’re running an NVIDIA RTX 20 or 30 Series GPU (or equivalent), you should have no trouble cranking the FOV all the way to max. Halo Infinite’s PC requirements aren’t too demanding, but older systems will need to strike a balance between FOV and frames.
Being conscious of hardware, here are the recommended FOVs for PC players:
- NVIDIA GTX 960 (minimum GPU): 80 FOV
- NVIDIA GTX 10 Series (recommended GPU): 95-105
- NVIDIA RTX 20 & 30 Series: 110-120
Best FOV for Halo Infinite on controller
As Halo has long been a console game, the vast majority of players will choose to game on a controller – it’ll be what feels natural.
However, aim assist comes into play when choosing your FOV. When cranking your FOV to fit more information on-screen, it will actually shrink everything to fit more. This will make far-off player models considerably smaller, and therefore more difficult to hit.
Skilled players may not have a problem with this, but for the average player, we recommend setting your FOV anywhere between 95-105. You’ll still get that extra spatial awareness without the targets shrinking too much.
Best FOV for Halo Infinite on mouse and keyboard
A large chunk of PC players will likely play Halo Infinite on a mouse and keyboard. It’s a well-known fact that a mouse offers finer aim control than a controller with aim assist, so if you’re a skilled marksman, you should have no trouble making those micro-adjustments with a high FOV.
If you’re playing Halo Infinite on a mouse and keyboard, we recommend a FOV of around 110, and you can adjust it either way to suit your preference.
Bear in mind that these are the recommended settings, and you’ll be able to find your ideal settings by experimenting.
Battlefield 2042 will also be releasing towards the end of the year, so you can check out how to play in its Open Beta in September.

Fortnite how to save the date in the Rift Tour tab
This particular quest does not require a complex process to complete, but you do need to know where to go in the game to complete it successfully.
The Fortnite Rift Tour event has its own tab in the game’s menu, where you will be able to find everything related to this upcoming event.
This tab is where you will find the full schedule for the show, where you will organize which of the shows you and your friends will be attending.
All that you need to do to complete the Fortnite save the date in the Rift Tour tab is click on one of the black boxes that can be found at the bottom of each of the show options.

Players are recommended to show up an hour before the show’s start time they would like to attend to make sure they have a place, as the playlists for each show will go live 30 minutes before.
