Halo Infinite’s Battle Pass progression has received backlash from players, so 343 Industries have responded to these complaints by confirming some Battle Pass changes.

While Halo Infinite won’t release until December 8, the developers made multiplayer available to download on November 15. This has been well-received, but players have a few complaints.

One of these is regarding the game’s extremely slow Battle Pass progression, as it’s possible for a player to drop majorly kill-heavy games and receive virtually no rewards for doing so.

Now, the developers have promised a fix for this issue.

The Halo Infinite developers promised to investigate the Battle Pass problems on November 16, and Halo Community Manager John Junyszek shared some of the changes that they have planned.

One of these updates is the addition of ‘Play 1 Game’ challenges to increase XP gains in the game. This will ensure that you gain some kind of progress regardless of how well or how long you play.

The developer then highlighted a few other changes like bug fixes and removing certain Weekly Challenges that players have complained about. These will help you gain XP much quicker.

“These tunings to challenge difficulty will help you progress through Weekly Challenges faster and thus directly speed up your progress through the Battle Pass,” Junyszek tweeted.

The duration for Double XP boosts within the Battle Pass will be doubled, from 30 minutes to one hour. However, Junyszek warned players that all weekly challenge progress will be reset after these changes.

While this might worry some fans, 343 Industries will award every player with the Sigil Mark VII Visor, this week’s exclusive Ultimate Reward. These changes are already set to arrive in an update “later this week.”

Epic Games are reportedly gearing up to bring a Dead by Daylight crossover to Fortnite, and here’s everything we know, including all leaked cosmetic skins and rumors.

Epic Games have added numerous crossovers that have brought new cosmetic skins to Fortnite, from popular fictional characters like Indiana Jones and Spider-Man to real-life celebrities like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

We’ve also seen crossovers with other popular video game franchises, and some new leaks suggest that Fortnite’s devs are currently planning a collaboration with survival-horror game Dead by Daylight.

Fortnite x Dead by Daylight leaked cosmetic skins

On June 26, prominent Fortnite leaker ‘Shiina’ tweeted that an anonymous source sent them images of a new Llama Charm as well as a new cosmetic skin of Meg Thomas from Dead by Daylight.

According to the leaker, this crossover “might happen soon” and would add new cosmetic items for both games. Dead by Daylight players will be able to earn the Llama Charm, and the Meg Thomas skin will arrive in Fortnite.

Rumors of this crossover were sparked by Twitter user ‘McNeil Racing77’ who shared a few images on June 9, claiming that Dead by Daylight characters had been spotted in a Fortnite survey.

These mentioned the names of David, Dwight, and The Legion from the horror-survival title, and it’s possible that they might all be added to Fortnite as part of the same cosmetic bundle. Interestingly, Meg Thomas wasn’t mentioned in this leaked survey.

While this all seems exciting, it’s worth keeping in mind that this information has yet to be verified by the developers of either game, so be sure to take it with a grain of salt until there’s an official announcement.

We’ll keep checking for more leaks and information about the Fortnite and Dead by Daylight crossover, including the release dates and additional cosmetic items. Once we learn more, we’ll be sure to update you.

apex legends season 13 pick rates

Season 13 of Apex Legends has tons of characters to choose from to enjoy its several maps. But who has the top Season 13 pick rates in Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale shooter?

Apex Legends hit the ground running when it launched with eight different characters to choose from in its battle royale offering. The game suffered a notable lull when Call of Duty: Warzone launched, but with many popular streamers such as NICKMERCS and Dr Disrespect continuing to support the game, Apex has grown expeditiously.

There are now a whopping 21 different Legends to choose from, giving players a headache before each game. With Season 13 now underway, Newcastle is the latest to join the roster.

Let’s take a look at how the new Legend has shaken up the roster by looking at the current Legend pick rates in Season 13, which provides an idea of who the most popular Legends are.

Most picked Legends in Apex Legends Season 13

5. Bloodhound – 8.6%

Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 13.

Bloodhound nearly always stays in and around the 8-11% mark as a season goes on, and they currently stand at 8.6%. They are easily the top Recon class to use in Apex Legends, thanks to their tracking tools and incredible skills, plus, their Beast of the Hunt Ultimate is priceless.

4. Pathfinder – 9.2%

Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 9.2%, and counting, for quite some time now.

As a Recon class, Pathfinder simply excels in movements and traversing the game’s various maps. His Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun are simply invaluable assets that will help any team in a pinch – either because of the circle or a third-party situation. He consistently manages to stay in the top 5 as a result.

3. Valkyrie – 10.1%

Despite getting some nerfs, Valkyrie is in the top 5 Legend pick rates for Season 13 with 10.1%, as she is the movement Queen. Her Jetpack Passive allows players to escape any kind of situation, which is crucial for survivability.

As well as her Passive, her Skyward Dive Ultimate is also great for mobility. This ability is the best rotational tool in all of Apex Legends, as it allows her and the team to relocate from a bad position or situation, into a good one.

Lastly, Valkyrie’s Tactical is also extremely useful for being aggressive and getting enemies out of camping spots, so long as you have enough room above you to launch the Missile Swarm.

2. Wraith – 10.2%

Another starting Legend, Wraith has been a consistent pick throughout Apex Legends’ lifetime, and she has taken the number two spot with a 10.2% pick rate in Season 13.

Wraith’s stand-out features are her ability to get out of trouble very quickly – teammates included. Her abilities allow her to sense danger, become temporarily invulnerable, and create portals to escape predicaments. It’s easy to see why Wraith continues to be an absolute fan favorite in Apex Legends Season 13.

1. Octane – 11.2% – Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 13

With a 11.2% pick rate, the speed demon takes the number one spot, continuing his reign as one of the most popular Legends in Season 13, fluctuating between the top two places.

Aside from his amusing quips, he is the perfect balance of offense and defense. Despite being regarded as an offensive Legend, Octane can greatly increase his sprint speed which is useful for both attack and running away.

But most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which can send him, and friendly players, high up into the air.


That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 13. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, altering the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.

We’ll be sure to keep this updated regularly so you can stay on top of the in picks and don’t forget to check out our guide on the best Legends to choose in Season 13.
