Halo Infinite is celebrating Xbox’s 20th Anniversary by giving away exclusive cosmetic rewards. Here’s how you can get them!

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since Microsoft released Halo: Combat Evolved on the original Xbox. Since then, Master Chief has remained one of the most notable icons in gaming history.

Microsoft and 343 Industries understand the passion that players have for a franchise like Halo. And with a reputation and history like Halo’s, it only makes sense that 343 Industries would commemorate the game’s 20th Anniversary.

Not only did the devs release Halo Infinite’s multiplayer early, but players also have a chance to earn some sweet exclusive gear. Here is how you can get the 20th Anniversary rewards in Halo Infinite.

Getting Halo Infinite Anniversary rewards

Getting the 20th Anniversary Halo Infinite rewards is actually pretty easy. All you need to do is launch the Halo Infinite Multiplayer beta and log in any time before November 22, 2021.

If you do not log in before November 22, the rewards will be gone forever. Since Halo Infinite is free and available on all Xbox consoles and PC, you shouldn’t miss out on these rewards.

We have listed the Halo Infinite Anniversary rewards below:

  • Armor Platinum Anniversary Armor Coating
  • Assault Rifle Platinum Anniversary Armor Coating
  • Warthog Platinum Anniversary Armor Coating
  • “Assembled” Emblems
  • Blue Team Weapon Charm
  • Heart Emblem Set

Players will unlock these items as soon as they log in, and they can use them to deck out their spartan. The Platinum Anniversary Armor Coating is meant to mimic the color scheme of Master Chief’s Spartan Armor in Halo: Combat Evolved.

As a reminder, these cosmetics are only available for a limited time. Players will not be able to purchase or obtain them after November 22. Logging in before then is the only way players can get these items.

Epic Games added a slide mechanic in Fortnite Chapter 3, and here’s everything you need to know about it, including how to cancel slides during combat.

There are many changes to sort through in Fortnite Chapter 3. We have a new Battle Pass featuring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Spider-Man as unlockable skins, and some new mechanics to give players an advantage in battle.

One of these allows players to slide across the map while running. This feature has been a part of games like Apex Legends for a long time and is now finally in Fortnite. It’s also fairly easy to pull off during combat.

Here’s everything you need to know about sliding in Fortnite.

How to slide in Fortnite on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC

Fortnite character sliding

You can slide in Fortnite by running and pressing the crouch button. As we said before, this isn’t too difficult to do during combat, and you just need to know which button to press..

Here are the default slide buttons on all platforms:

  • PS4/ PS5: Press the right analogue stick down
  • Xbox One/ Xbox Series X: Press the right analogue stick down
  • Nintendo Switch: Press the right control stick down
  • PC: Press the CTRL key

While this is the default crouch button, it’s important to note that this may not apply if you have changed it in your keybinding settings. So you’ll need to remember what button it is or reset it to the default settings.

How To slide cancel in Fortnite

Fortnite character running

Sometimes you might accidentally start sliding when you didn’t intend to, and this could seriously harm you during a gunfight. Luckily, the game lets you cancel the animation by pressing the crouch button a second time.

This will instantly get your character back into the running position. You can only slide down steep slopes such as hills, mountains, and slanting rooftops. Since you can use your weapon while sliding, this can be useful in battles.

You can also change the “slide hold time” when playing on a controller. This changes the duration for which you need to hold the crouch button to get your character to begin sliding.

Apex Legends: Crypto Heirloom model & animations leaked by dataminers

New Apex Legends leaks have uncovered the long awaited model and animations for Crypto’s Heirloom, which will likely drop in Season 12.

Crypto in Apex Legends

Apex Legends dataminers have been hard at work uncovering future content for Respawn’s battle royale, and the latest revealed Crypto’s Heirloom.

Apex Legends‘ players have had a lot to digest over the past week, with Respawn officially announcing the Raiders Collection Event and Christmas content coming in Season 11.

The Season 11 Collection Event will bring Wattson‘s Heirloom, but one character in particular has been amongst the talk of whose Heirloom will be next for quite a few seasons.

Finally, we have more information on Crypto‘s Heirloom, including when it could be arriving, the 3D model, and some of the animations.

Apex Legends Crypto

Every Apex Legends player is desperate for an Heirloom and the Collection Events stand as the easiest way to obtain one. The only catch is that you don’t get to pick which one you get as the only one available during these events is the latest one to drop.

Although they aren’t the most popular Legend in the game, Crypto has always been a fan-favorite when it comes to personality and style. The Korean hacker was one of the first new Legends to drop, being introduced in Season 3 along with World’s Edge.

Despite being introduced so early, we have yet to see his Heirloom, well, until now.

The leaker responsible for Crypto’s Heirloom leaks is Thordan Smash. This is a very reliable source as they have been involved in several leaks that have come to fruition such as Ash’s abilities prior to Season 11.

In their latest video, they showed off footage of Crypto’s Heirloom from the player’s perspective. The Heirloom takes the form of a retracting Korean Jikdo sword. The version of Crypto’s Heirloom shown in the video is clearly unfinished as it doesn’t possess any textures or colors.

Having said that, we can probably expect the Jikdo to have the green and white pallet Crypto is known for.

We also got to see some interesting animations in the video. It seems the Jikdo will be retractable, and when Crypto pulls it out, it will extend almost like a lightsaber.

Crypto holds the Heirloom like a sword and for those who love Heirloom designs that actually look like weapons, this one is definitely for you.


That’s all on Crypto’s Heirloom leaks, for more on Apex Legends be sure to check out when Apex Legends’ third Anniversary is.

Epic Games have added the Victory Crown in Fortnite Chapter 3, and here’s everything you need to know about it, including what it does and how to get it.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 has brought a brand-new Battle Pass that features several unlockable skins like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Spider-Man. There are also new items like Spidey’s Web-Shooters.

Another new feature is the Victory Crown, and players who hold this item will gain some extremely useful benefits. In case you’re wondering what it does and how to get it, we’ve got you covered.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Victory Crown.

What is the Victory Crown in Fortnite?

As the name implies, the Victory Crown can be worn on your head when you’re on Fortnite Island. It is a new feature that provides its wearers with some neat rewards that will make it highly sought-after.

If you’ve got the Victory Crown then you’ll receive bonus XP during the match while wearing it. If you win a game while you have it on then you’ll get an altered Victory Royale screen where a Crown is added on top of the text.

You will also get an exclusive emote that shows you the amount of Crowned Victory Royales that you earn when playing Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1. So, wearing the Victory Crown definitely has its advantages.

Victory Crowns will automatically be awarded to the top few players in a game. You can get it when playing Solo, Duos, Trios, and Squads, but you’ll need to play extremely well to succeed.

Once you’ve got one, you’ll start your next match wearing the Victory Crown. This is risky because it makes you a target for other players that will attempt to eliminate you and steal it for themselves.

You’ll need to fight to defend the Crown from enemies, so there is a great degree of risk associated with it. If you wish to avoid that, then you can simply drop the Victory Crown item.
