After a couple of big updates, the GTA Online Weekly Update returns for July 29 adding the Z-Type Podium Vehicle, new Test Track cars, and lots of juicy offers.

The GTA Online Summer update is in full flow as new cars are being added, new Survival modes are here, and there are even new collectibles too.

GTA Online is in thriving right now, but in terms of Grand Theft Auto’s future, the latest rumor suggests that GTA 6 will now only be released in 2025, and a recent report about a GTA 6 amusement park map has been outed as false.

Until GTA 6 is official and we can be more certain, we will remain focused on GTA Online, and our usual GTA Online leaker TezFunz2 has been able to get early info on the new update.

Z-Type Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel Reward

The Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel has put a free Z-Type up for grabs for Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel players to try and spin to win this week.

Pardon its unusual and retro-looking shape, as the bulky Z-Type classic car boasts a fabulous interior, and is a well-crafted car to cruise around in. Quality like this doesn’t come cheap, usually, with the Z-Type normally costing $950,000, but with one spin, it can be yours for free.

Here’s the official description of the Z-Type:

Weather the new Great Depression with a car from the last Great Depression. When this rolled off the production line in 1937, minorities and women knew their place. It was the world’s fastest automobile. Now it’s the world’s most expensive second-hand automobile. One of only 10 ever made, the Z-Type is a car you can really enjoy sitting in, surrounded by armed guards, too terrified to actually drive it anywhere.

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.

Best Halo Infinite FOV settings

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

Halo Infinite Field of View slider

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:

  1. Launch Halo Infinite
  2. Open up ‘settings’
  3. Select the ‘video’ tab
  4. 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

Halo Infinite beta technical preview gameplay

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

Master Chief in Halo Infinite

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

Multiplayer Gameplay Reveal Trailer

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

technical preview gameplay

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.

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.

It is important to note that this is not an RSVP for the show and that it does not guarantee you will get into the event, as there are sure to be server limits when it comes to how many players can be in the game, such as with Fortnite events in the past.

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.

This is one of the easier quests available for the upcoming musical event, so players will be wise to set aside a couple of minutes to complete the Fortnite save the date in the Rift Tour tab challenge.
