Halo Infinite

A Reddit thread has broken down all of the new confirmed information for Halo Infinite, and some of these features hint at a Battle Royale mode for the game.

In a massive Reddit thread, a player has detailed all the confirmed information regarding Halo Infinite, which is due to launch by the end of 2021. In this thread, the user breaks down content relating to the game’s campaign, multiplayer features, and touches on a system that could hint at the rumored Battle Royale mode coming to the game.

Let’s breakdown some of the important details that were listed under this thread from user u/IntrinsicGamer.

Halo Infinite Will have a dynamic weather system

Apparently, the Halo ring will have a day and night cycle, along with weather systems, including wind. While a rainstorm or snowstorm system won’t exist at launch, the developers have stated they are “excited about the future.”

The thread states that it’s implied there may be future campaign content, we’d like to think this very well could be the foundation for a robust Halo-themed Battle Royale mode. A dynamic weather system in a battle royale always adds great variety to the gameplay, and in a universe like Halo, this would be a welcome change.

As a bonus, it appears the day/night cycles will also affect the in-game cutscenes, which will be an interesting extra layer of immersion.

The game isn’t exactly “Open World”

While players may believe that the game will be an open-world Halo title in the Campaign, the design for the game isn’t necessarily that. Players will have the option to do side-quests around the game world, but all of these different pathways will still lead to the overall next objective.

It seems that the developers focused on making levels similar to Halo: Combat Evolved’s “Silent Cartographer” mission, where each pathway the player takes will feel like a massive and unique experience, but will still ultimately lead to the next point of the game.

In theory, this should add plenty of replay value to the missions for casual players and completionists alike.

A Weapon upgrade system was planned

During development, a weapon upgrade system for the campaign was originally planned, but the developers eventually felt that the system veered away from what Halo was.

Instead, an Equipment upgrade system was chosen, which lets you upgrade equipment items you’ll find on your travels. As a middle ground for the scrapped weapon upgrade system, you’ll instead find powerful and unique weapon variants while traveling the environment.

If you’re a hardcore Halo fan, or just curious about what’s to come in the next game, we recommend you check out the full Reddit thread for more information regarding some of the confirmed content coming to Halo Infinite.

We’ll see you on the ring later this year.

Armored Walls in Fortnite Season 8

Fortnite Season 8 has included a brand-new Trap item to the game, with Armored Walls making your structures much more powerful. Here’s how to find and use this new defensive item.

Following the news that Fortnite will be crossing over with designer fashion house Balenciaga, Epic Games has brought even more content with the September 21 hotfix. In this small update, they’ve announced a Fourth Birthday event, given players the chance to unvault an item, and added a new Trap.

The Armored Walls Trap covers builds in thick metal plating, giving “any building piece a whole bunch more HP.”

Here’s how to find and use this powerful new item.

Creating a safe area to hold down is one of the most important strategies to winning a game of Fortnite. Maintaining the high ground and having solid cover is ever-important and now your defense can now be even stronger thanks to the new Armored Walls Trap.

These Armored Walls have arrived in Fortnite Battle Royale matches with the September 21 update. In the accompanying announcement, Epic Games revealed that Armored Walls can be found in Supply Boxes and on the ground. So, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find them, you just need to loot around.

How to use Armored Walls in Fortnite

Armored Walls are Uncommon Traps, so will go into the Trap inventory slot. Like placing the old Damage Traps or Bouncers, you just need to approach one of your own structures with Armor Plates in your inventory and press your Trap keybind, e.g T.

The wall will now become a thick metal structure with 2,500 HP, so the enemies will have an extremely hard time breaking through. However, it works both ways, so be careful you don’t box yourself in!

Here’s a quick summary:

  1. Build or approach one of your walls in Fortnite
  2. Have the Armored Walls trap at the ready
  3. Press your Trap button to apply it to the surface

And that’s how you can find and use Armored Walls in Fortnite Season 8! For more guides, check out how to level up the Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass fast.
