343 Industries have removed the Behemoth ‘Capture the Flag‘ (CTF) map from Halo Infinite’s Ranked Arenas playlist and announced a major rework following player backlash.
343 Industries have reassured players that they’re aware of the issues with the map and are planning to implement some major fixes. They’ve also revealed the details of the Behemoth CTF rework.
Halo Infinite Behemoth CTF disabled
Halo Infinite’s Community Manager John ‘Unyshek’ Junyszek discussed the Behemoth rework in a recent blog post. While the map is still accessible in casual modes, the CTF mode has been disabled in Ranked Arena.
The dev explained that they’ve disabled the map for a rework because it’s “creating a more frenetic match pace than desired.” They’re currently investigating the map’s layout and other aspects.
“We’ve seen enough data to show us that the map is not performing in Ranked as intended,” Unyshek said. “Most of this data revolves around spawning and effective cover around the map.
He also explained that they’re looking into the “unpredictable” spawn placements as well as a lack of viable cover options. The goal is to ensure that the map performs better in Ranked upon its return.
The Halo Infinite community has responded positively to this announcement by showing excitement for the Behemoth rework. The map’s problems were turning fans away from the CTF mode.
It’s reassuring to know that 343 Industries aren’t lost on the Ranked Arena’s problems. Hopefully, the improvements that they make will be enough to satisfy players when the map is reintroduced.

Can you play Apex Legends Mobile with a controller?
Apex Legends Mobile has arrived on Android and iOS. Here’s everything you need to know about the game’s controller support.
Apex Legends Mobile is finally here, but some players still prefer to use a trusty controller over the touchscreen controls. Here’s everything we know about Apex Legends Mobile’s controller support.
After months of playtests, Apex Legends Mobile was finally released on Android and iOS on May 17, 2022. It features many of the same Legends and weapons as the main game, as well as the mobile-exclusive Fade, all on your mobile phone or tablet.
But even with its fully-fledged touchscreen controls, some players prefer having a controller in their hands when playing first-person shooters. Here’s everything we know about Apex Legends Mobile’s controller support.
- Does Apex Legends Mobile have controller support?
- When is controller support coming to Apex Legends Mobile?
Does Apex Legends Mobile have controller support?
Apex Legends Mobile does not have controller support at launch but the devs have confirmed that it’s on the way.
Speaking at a press event ahead of Apex Mobile’s launch, the developers said they understand that many prefer to use a controller over the touchscreen controls. “It is super important for us, we understand usability issues, and how much fun it is,” explained one of the devs.
They confirmed that controller support is in the works for Apex Legends Mobile but unfortunately, it didn’t make it to the game for launch.
When is controller support coming to Apex Legends Mobile?
While there’s no concrete timeframe, Apex Legends Mobile’s developers confirmed that controller support should come in the “very near future.”
They explained that “We’re actively exploring [controller support] but haven’t quite got it right.” When exactly it will arrive is anyone’s guess, but it should be here before the end of 2022.
Although there is no official support for it, players can actually pair their Bluetooth controller with their phone and use it. The controllers that are compatible and can pair with your mobile device include the following:
- Xbox Series X/S controller
- Xbox One controller
- PlayStation DualSense controller
- PlayStation 4 controller
- Razer Kishi
Simply activate the pairing mode for the controller and find it on your mobile’s Bluetooth devices section. This will allow you to use the controller on Apex Mobile, but unfortunately, as there is no support for the feature, it can be buggy, especially when it comes to customizing your layout.

How to complete FIFA 22 Thomas Lemar TOTS SBC
Ultimate Team players can secure a dominant midfielder by completing the Thomas Lemar LaLiga TOTS SBC in FIFA 22.
French midfielder Thomas Lemar is available via SBC during the FIFA 22 TOTS promo. Here’s how to complete the FIFA 22 Lemar LaLiga TOTS SBC with the cheapest solution.
The TOTS promo is currently shining a light on LaLiga with players doing their best to secure the elite that Spain has to offer. EA have delivered a few SBCs as a part of the LaLiga TOTS promo including a Flashback Isco SBC and Iago Aspas TOTS SBC.
Now, players can get their hands on Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Lemar. While the French International usually plays out wide on the left-wing, this TOTS card makes for an interesting change by having him positioned as a CM.
Here’s what you need to know about the FIFA 22 Lemar TOTS SBC, including the cheapest solution.
FIFA 22 LaLiga TOTS Lemar SBC stats
While LaLiga has some incredible CMs to pick from, Lemar’s French nationality is a huge asset, and you’ll be able to get him into a variety of teams outside of LaLiga given the popularity of French players. Due to the position change, Lemar’s Physicality and Defending stats have received huge boosts.
You can utilize Lemar as a CAM, CM, and even CDM, with great success, and with his 94 Short Passing and 93 Long Passing, Lemar will prove to be an excellent distributor of the ball regardless of his positioning in your midfield. Lastly, his 95 Stamina will have you covering the entire pitch for 90 minutes.
How to complete FIFA 22 Lemar TOTS SBC
To complete this SBC, players will need to give up three squads: France, Top Form, and LaLiga. With a value of around 210,000 coins, Lemar is only slightly overpriced, but those who have extra fodder should consider completing this FIFA 22 SBC.

Apex Legends devs confirm fix for Xbox server crashing exploit in Season 13
The Apex Legends devs have officially fixed the Xbox server crashing exploit that was plaguing ranked games in Season 13.
Apex Legends players will be happy to hear that the Xbox server crashing issue that has been ruining games, especially in ranked, has officially been fixed by the devs.
Unfortunately, players on consoles couldn’t enjoy the new system to the extent that they maybe wanted to due to a serious exploit plaguing the experience and causing servers to crash.
Luckily, it seems the devs have fixed the issue with a hotfix that went live on May 25.
In Apex Legends Season 13, Xbox players noticed that they were able to crash the server and prevent themselves from losing Ranked Points by doing so. This was ruining the experience for others, especially as Apex Legends is cross-platform.
While some believed this was a DDoS issue, the devs confirmed it was an exploit on Xbox and pushed a fix on May 18. Unfortunately, the fix didn’t work, and Xbox players were still able to crash servers and ruin matches for others.
This has been very damaging for players who have been trying to rank up and enjoy the brand new ranked changes, even turning people off from playing the game.
A Respawn dev let the community know that another hotfix went live on May 25 which seems to have fixed the issue caused by players on Xbox consoles.
So far, it seems like this fix has done the trick, as players have not been reporting the issue in the community.
Finally, players can enjoy the ranked grind without having to worry about the game crashing and wasting time in a match that could all end in nothing.
With that being said, you may want to check out the best landing spots on Storm Point, which is the ranked map for split 1 of Season 13.
