Every Halo Infinite map ranked from worst to best

Halo Infinite maps ranked

Halo Infinite offers ten maps across its Quick Play and Big Team Battle modes, so we’ve ranked all of them from worst to best.

Halo Infinite’s multiplayer launched almost a month early and has been praised by both new and returning players. The Battle Pass progression has been a sore point, but players have been more than impressed with the core gameplay.

One of the best aspects of the game is its map design, so we’ve looked at every map in the game and ranked them from worst to best.

All Halo Infinite maps: Ranked list

Halo Infinite offers an extremely strong line-up of maps, all offering a unique and engaging experience. However, some maps stand out against the rest, so we’ve ranked all ten from worst to best.

Here’s every Halo Infinite map, ranked:

  1. Launch Site
  2. Deadlock
  3. High Power
  4. Fragmentation
  5. Aquarius
  6. Behemoth
  7. Bazaar
  8. Live Fire
  9. Streets
  10. Recharge

10. Launch Site

Halo Infinite launch site map

Launch Site feels far too large and mundane for Halo Infinite’s classic 4v4 multiplayer, making it the worst map in Halo Infinite.

This map covers the length of a long corridor in a missile silo, with plenty of nooks and crannies around the edges to navigate through. One team usually sits back in their base, spelling certain death for anyone who tries to travel through the main corridor.

It feels like it was designed only with the ‘One Flag CTF’ mode in mind, and every other mode feels lacking.

9. Deadlock

Halo Infinite Deadlock map

Deadlock is at its most fun if you manage to pick up some other weapons. The MA40 Assault Rifle you spawn with simply can’t handle Deadlock’s long-range fights, so you’ll need to find yourself a Battle Rifle or Commando as soon as you spawn.

The center of the map is usually full of action, but you’ll often find yourself having to run to close the gap before you can get into an effective range. And more often than not, you’ll be sniped or run over on your way.

But it still offers the fun chaos that popularized the Big Team Battle mode, and is by no means a bad map.

8. High Power

Halo Infinite High power map

High Power counters everything that has Deadlock lacking, allowing players to safely get to the middle off the map to fight at their preferred range.

Although a large Big Team Battle map, it doesn’t feel it, as it doesn’t long to get into the action. And once you’re there, the center of the map offers plenty of cover so you’re not getting picked off by Sniper Rifles and Skewers all of the time.

7. Fragmentation – Best Big Team Battle map

Halo Infinite fragmentation map

Fragmentation is the quintessential Big Team Battle map, offering all sorts of playstyles. You can hop in a vehicle to get right in the mix, sit back and snipe, or take close-quarters fights in the middle.

The edges of the map offer perfect opportunities for medium-range fights and flanking routes, but the central room is always chock-full of players if you’re looking for relentless action and chaos. This makes it the best Big Team Battle map in Halo Infinite.

6. Aquarius

Halo Infinite Aquarius map

Aquarius offers the classic three-lane gameplay that is so popular in the FPS genre.

Its symmetrical design makes it an excellent Capture the Flag map because no side has an advantage. Whichever team can control the bridge usually has a huge advantage, as they can see directly into the enemy’s spawn and control the Power Upgrade spawn.

The only thing that makes it slightly frustrating is that the two spawns can see each other, so you’ll often find yourself being battered by Battle Rifle shots as soon as you spawn.

5. Behemoth

Halo Infinite Behemoth map

The largest of the 4v4 maps in Halo Infinite, Behemoth offers players a wide range of playstyles.

The initial battle after everyone takes the boosters to the side of the map gets the action in quick. And if playing in Quickplay, there’s plenty of fun to be had for vehicle players.

What slightly holds Behemoth back is its size, where if your teammates are uncoordinated, it can often feel like the game is unwinnable. But if you can coordinate pushes with your team, Behemoth leads to some excellent Halo gameplay.

4. Bazaar

Halo Infinite Bazaar map

Bazaar is one of the smaller maps, where fights are usually decided at extremely close range.

However, there’s room for some medium-range fights across the middle courtyard, where players can find some great equipment such as the SPNKR and Overshield.

There doesn’t seem to be any real power position for a team to hold, and some may not like its close-range nature, but we think Bazaar is one of the best maps in Halo Infinite.

3. Live Fire

Halo Infinite live fire map

If you thought Bazaar had close-knit action, Live Fire takes that to another weapon.

Set in the firing range from the tutorial level, Live Fire has Spartans engage in fights immediately. Almost every fight is decided at extremely close range, and you won’t have a second to breathe.

But, the map flows extremely well in Strongholds and Oddball, where teams can control either the B Flag or sniper tower above the C Flag to control the map.

2. Streets

Halo Infinite streets map

Streets has an extremely unique design, where players battle it out under the neon glow of a futuristic city.

There are plenty of powerful weapons dotted around the map, and plenty of power positions to hold. Both the A and C flags have powerful head glitches that look down onto the main street, which makes fighting for each of the spawn flags a tough battle. And if you’re looking for close-range chaos, head to the B flag where there’s almost no cover to take refuge behind.

Streets’ unique design and map flow makes it absolutely one of the best maps in Halo Infinite and could become a series mainstay.

1. Recharge – Best map in Halo Infinite

Halo Infinite Recharge map

Recharge captures everything that makes Halo Infinite’s multiplayer great. A futuristic aesthetic, strong team play, and a simplistic design that can be mastered.

Recharge has plenty of unique areas that offer different playstyles. You can take long-range fights onto the B Flag, or get up-close and personal in the rooms and corridors that go round the edges.

Although a brand-new map, it already feels like you’re playing a classic, and Recharge will likely be here to stay.

Overpowered Apex Legends double pump glitch returns in Season 14

Apex Legends players have discovered the return of the double pump glitch in Season 14, creating controversy in the community.

Published

on

The infamous double pump glitch has returned in Apex Legends Season 14, leaving players worried about people abusing the bug.

The Apex Legends Season 14 update brought a variety of changes to the game, giving dataminers a new game version to sift through and find details around the potential Season 15 Legend.

As the update brought so much new content and changes, it’s normal for new bugs and glitches to show up, which players have seen with the unlimited loot exploit.

However, players have now discovered that the infamous double pump glitch has returned, making the Peacekeeper and Sentinel even more deadly for those who abuse the bug.

Apex Legends content creator Mokeysniper brought the return of the double pump glitch to the community’s attention on August 18, posting a video of it in action.

The glitch allows players to shoot the Peacekeeper and Sentinel much faster than they should be able to, giving those who use the glitch an unfair advantage over others.

The glitch is done by shooting, reloading, swapping to your secondary, and swapping back very quickly. If players are able to get the timing right, they can repeat this process to shoot the Peacekeeper/Sentinel in a ridiculously fast manner.

This is clearly a glitch that needs to be addressed and resolved quickly by Respawn, as if it starts to be abused by players, it could create chaos.

In the comments of the Twitter post, there are a few videos of players showing them doing it in-game, which is a worrying sign. Some are very worried about it being absued, with one comment saying “I actually hate that you guys post this kinda s***. It’s always super sick to deal with some broken weird s*** in ranked.”

Hopefully, Respawn can get a fix out for this as soon as possible, much like they were able to do for the accidental removal of tap strafing.

Weird Apex Legends glitch spawns unlimited loot for players

A new Apex Legends glitch has been discovered that provides players with unlimited loot from one Loot Bin.

Published

on

Apex Legends lootbin

An Apex Legends player has discovered a very weird bug that spawns unlimited loot when playing in Season 14.

The Apex Legends developers are constantly looking to improve the player experience by introducing new content and fixing issues the community is experiencing. Just recently, the devs even introduced a quality of life change which made many controller players happy.

Unfortunately, Apex Legends is not immune to bugs and issues, with the launch of Season 14 prompting some new glitches like characters having the wrong abilities and players not receiving rewards for leveling up.

Now, Apex Legends content creator Skeptation has found a new glitch in the Battle Royale which ultimately allows players to exploit Loot Bins to spawn unlimited items.

Skeptation explains how this glitch works in his August 18 YouTube video, stating that when players stand on top of and open a Loot Bin that has a wall behind it, the Loot Bin will close completely after the player has taken the loot inside of it.

If you open the Loot Bin again, it will be completely empty. This is obviously a good trick for covering your tracks and trolling teammates who are looking for loot, however, Skeptation noticed that on some occasions something “weirder” happens.

When messing around with the bug, Skeptation noticed that sometimes the Loot Bin would refresh and spawn more loot after performing the glitch.

Skeptation does say that although he is “not sure what triggers it,” if someone is able to figure out how to do it consistently it would be “broken.”

If this becomes a major issue and players are attempting and being successful with this unlimited loot glitch, perhaps it will provoke Respawn to come up with a fix.
