While it has been rumored for some time now, new Halo Infinite leaks are suggesting we could be seeing a battle royale mode for the game as early as November.

Halo Infinite was a success when it launched back in November 2021. However, fast forward to the present, and the game is unable to sustain the hype, as there has been a severe lack of content throughout its first season.

With Halo Infinite Season 2 on the way, perhaps this will increase the FPS game’s popularity once more, especially when coupled with new leaks suggesting there could be a battle royale mode on the way.

Battle royale games have been dominating the multiplayer shooter scene for years now, with the likes of Warzone, Fortnite, and more recently, Apex Legends commanding the scene with the likes of Dr Disrespect and NICKMERCS investing their time into the games.

Unfortunately, this has left Halo Infinite high and dry, unable to compete with the popularity of battle royale games.

Having said that, the devs over at 343 Industries may have been working on a BR mode all along, as recent leaks reveal new details about a Halo Infinite battle royale.

During a podcast with Rand al Thor 19 called The Xbox Two, WindowsCentral journalist Jez Corden shared information on Halo Infinite’s battle royale mode, stating that it “has been in development for two years,” and could be seen as early as Season 3.

Jez Corden claims that the devs are testing a “PVP, PVE kind of thing” that isn’t actually a “traditional battle royale.” Further, he also shares that it’s “duos and trios…and it has shrinking circles, like a battle royale, and it sort of forces you to move around the map…and there’s like different objectives and stuff like that.”

Jez Corden has also heard that the mode could also have “respawn tickets,” much like in all of the popular battle royale modes. So, it seems 343 Industries are working on a new mode with aspects from the battle royale genre and also single-player elements, which Jez also states.

One thing Jez Corden makes clear is to take this information with a pinch of salt, as it’s all just rumors, speculation, and leaks. Also, he also states that it’s “hard to definitively leak all of this stuff,” as some of it could be “leftover code.”

However, one thing is certain, and that is that 343 Industries have been working on their version of a battle royale mode for two years now, so you’d expect this mode to be dropping in the future.

With Season 2 on the horizon, fans have been pretty upset to see that it will last 6 months, meaning that Season 3 won’t be dropping until November. Further, Jez Corden even said that the battle royale may not even arrive until Season 4, which is a long way out.

Apex Legends pro claims Season 13 ranked changes will make you a better player

An Apex Legends pro has come out in support of the Season 13 ranked changes, claiming it will make players better.

After receiving backlash, Apex Legends pro Mac ‘Albralelie’ Beckwith has shared his thoughts on the new Season 13 ranked system, claiming it will improve players.

Apex Legends Season 13 brought some drastic changes to the ranked system, changing the way players gain points and grind through the ranks.

Previously, the system had been more focused on kills, but the new system places emphasis on placement. This has made it harder for players to earn points and level up, as the lobbies have become much more competitive in the final zones.

In Apex Legends Season 13’s Ranked Leagues, players are encouraged to stay alive and play for the win, rather than getting a load of kills. This had led to more squads and players being alive in final circles, making it harder to gain points.

While the community hasn’t been particularly fond of these changes, seasoned Apex Legends pro Albralelie gave his opinions on this new system, supporting the dev’s changes while making some controversial comments.

In a recent stream, the Apex Legends pro shared his feelings towards the changes, believing the new ranked changes are healthy for the game, which is contrary to the community’s reaction.

Ultimately, the pro feels as if the new changes are going to make players better at the game. Albralelie says that the new system “caters to you being able to actually improve as you climb…don’t get defeated.”

The streamer and Apex pro also made some interesting comments on solo players while answering a question about whether solo players should be able to reach the higher ranks.

The pro makes a controversial statement: “should a solo player be able to reach Masters in a team-based competitive BR? Just because it happened before doesn’t mean it was supposed to happen, right?”

It’s interesting to hear a professional Apex Legends player’s take on the new ranked system, especially as casual players have been pretty upset with the changes. All in all, the pro feels it will make players better, and even if players are now in lower ranks than they’re used to, they should use it as motivation to improve.

Clever Apex Legends trick reverts Kraber nerfs

With this clever trick, Apex Legends’ Kraber Sniper Rifle becomes a one-shot machine yet again, even after nerfs.

Apex Legends players have found a way to make the Kraber Sniper Rifle one-shot kill yet again after the Season 13 nerfs.

Apex Legends Season 13 brought some pretty huge changes to the game, especially when it comes to the Legends and weapon meta.

As well as some major Valkyrie nerfs and the introduction of Newcastle, Season 13 also nerfed the only one-shot kill weapon in the game, the Kraber.

This combined with the Helmet buffs caused a change in the weapon’s one-shot headshot potential, but this new trick reverts the changes.

Prior to the nerfs, the Kraber would one-shot any Legend as long as it was a headshot. This made the weapon extremely powerful and useful in end-game situations, as just one shot could change the tide of a fight.

Now, in Season 13, as long as players have the correct armor requirements, the Kraber is no longer a guaranteed one-shot kill.

Having said that, thanks to Apex Legends content creator RossTheeSquirrel, there is indeed a way for players to one-shot any Legend with the Kraber even after the Season 13 patch.

By shooting through Rampart’s Tactical ability, Amped Cover, players actually gain an increase in damage as the shielded wall “amps outgoing shots.”

This increases the Kraber’s headshot damage to revert the Season 13 nerfs, making it a one-shot headshot against any Legend no matter what armor they are wearing.

While Rampart hasn’t been considered the most popular Legend in Apex according to the pick rates, she received a buff in Season 13 and players seem to be more interested in giving her a try.

Now, she also has this added benefit of being the only Legend that has the capabilities to make the Kraber a one-shot kill again, perhaps those who love the Kraber will give her a chance.
