Halo Infinite leaks suggest Battle Royale has been replaced by new mode

It seemed that Halo Infinite would have Battle Royale, but a new leak suggests that this is not the case and a new mode has replaced it.

There have been long-standing rumors that Halo Infinite would be getting a dedicated Battle Royale mode. However, a new leak has come out that indicated that it’s been replaced by a new mode.

Battle Royale has become such a phenomenon over the last few years that it would be understandable if Halo’s devs decided to try their own luck and experiment with it. The early impression was that we would be seeing 100 Master Chiefs using Spikers to assert their dominance.

However, a reliable leaker on Reddit has come forward with contradictory claims and thinks that Halo Infinite is opting for a different mode instead.

Battle Royale not coming to Halo Infinite after all?

Given how successful Fortnite, PUBG, and Apex Legends have been, other companies have decided that they want in the action. Call of Duty developers went with this mentality for Warzone and it paid off spectacularly.

You’d imagine that even a half-hearted Halo Battle Royale would be a huge success and a great accompaniment for Halo Infinite.

But Klobrille has claimed that 343 Industries are not interested in pursuing current trends and want to break new ground for the legendary Halo franchise.

Instead, the developers are going to focus on creating “Big Team Battle 2.0,” a new concept for Halo that seems to lean heavily on Battlefield elements.

The new mode could have some of the following features:

  • Enhanced vehicular combat
  • Squad spawning
  • Incoming pelican drops
  • Big teams

If this comes to fruition, then it will represent a leap forward in innovation for Halo and its multiplayer.

Halo Infinite is expected to launch to much hype and expectation later this year in the latter stages of 2021.

Frustrating Warzone glitch lets players get underground again

Warzone players are making use of the map clipping exploit on Rebirth Island to secure unfair victories once again.

Warzone glitch returns

The notorious map clipping exploit on Rebirth Island has returned to Call of Duty: Warzone, with players abusing it to get underneath the map and take out their unsuspecting opponents.

Warzone fans are no strangers to strange glitches, as Rebirth Island was plagued by map-clipping exploits for months. Cheaters often took advantage of this, and Raven Software issued a fix for it in the Season 2 Reloaded update.

Despite this, the infamous glitch has returned, allowing players to sneak underneath the map close to the Chemical Engineering POI. Now, players are exploiting kill and loot without worrying about getting shot.

Reddit user MrMakaveli shared a clip of this exploit in the CoD: Warzone subreddit. It showcased the player in the midst of a battle at Decon Zone, and they got beamed to death by an unseen enemy as they were helping their teammate.

This left the player bewildered, as they had no idea how they had been killed. However, the kill cam then revealed that the enemy was underneath the ground, so there was no way for the player to see the attack coming.

While this exploit was supposed to have been fixed in the Season 2 Reloaded update, it was present in the clip which was posted on April 10, weeks after the update.

Although there’s no guarantee that this is the same map clipping exploit as before, it seems remarkably similar. The biggest indicator that they’re one and the same is the location that is seen in the clip.

The original wall-breach often happened at the corner of Chem Eng, which is near the Bioweapon Labs. The cheater in the video was very close to this location, at the northeastern corner of Rebirth Island.

At the time of writing, Raven Software’s Trello board hasn’t been updated with the exploit’s return, but we’ll keep checking for any new developments. Hopefully, they’ll come up with a permanent fix soon.

New Apex Legends leak claims ‘Dragon’ LMG coming soon

Some new Apex Legends leaks have revealed a new LMG called the ‘Dragon,’ which is unique due to one key detail.

Apex Legends LMG

A unique new Light Machine Gun called the “Dragon” has been revealed in some Apex Legend leaks, and this unique weapon is the first of its kind to make use of Light Ammo.

When you hop into a match of Apex Legends, you’ll immediately have to search for some top tier weapons to boost your chances of victory. The battle royale has only had three unique LMGs since launch, but now a fourth might be on its way.

One Apex Legend data miner uncovered some brand-new weapons in the game files, and a notable addition was the “Dragon.” This is a new LMG that’s different from the others because it uses Light Rounds.

Weapons in Apex Legends

These leaks came from prominent Apex Legends data miner ‘Biast12’, who revealed a handful of new weapons on April 11. The Dragon LMG caught the attention of many fans due to one important detail.

This might be the first weapon of its kind to use Light Rounds in the battle royale. There are currently only six weapons in Apex that rely on this type of ammo, and LMGs mainly utilize Heavy Rounds or Energy Ammo.

If the Dragon is added to the game, then making use of Light Rounds will give it an extremely fast rate of fire. This means that you’ll be able to use it to cause some serious pain in a short amount of time.

Those are the only known details about this weapon at the time of writing. We currently don’t know its power, recoil, or where to find it on the map. Biast12 shared a close look at the in-game model, and it seems lightweight compared to other LMGs.

While this model seems unique, it’s important to keep in mind that these are just leaks, so there’s a chance that we might not see the Dragon in the game. Hopefully, Respawn will announce something official to confirm its arrival.

Perhaps it will be part of the upcoming Season 9 update for Apex Legends. We’ll keep checking for any new developments regarding this, and will inform you of anything new that we learn.

Dr Disrespect explains why he’s so excited for Battlefield 6’s Warzone competitor

Dr Disrespect is excited at the prospect of a Battlefield 6 battle royal, explaining the reasons why after a frustrating day on Warzone.

YouTube streamer Dr Disrespect is no stranger to battle royales, and the leader of the Champions Club has been explaining why he has high hopes for Battlefield 6 as frustrations continue to grow with Call of Duty: Warzone.

“Violence, speed, and momentum” is the iconic catchphrase of Dr Disrespect, and no game genre captures what the Doc is all about more than battle royales. From H1Z1 to PUBG, the Two-Time has spent years outlasting and dominating opponents.

Like many, the latest BR to capture the Doc’s attention is Warzone, but with the game struggling under the weight of bugs like the “no-glint” Sniper Rifle and never-ending update loops on consoles, there is a real appetite for a competitor to shake up the genre.

Rumors have been swirling about a second Battlefield BR mode, and it seems they have caught the attention of Doc, who explained why he was excited to get his hands on it, believing that DICE have learned from the mistakes of Battlefield V’s Firestorm.

After another frustrating day of Warzone on April 9, Dr Disrespect broke down why he’s looking forward to Battlefield’s next battle royale, claiming that DICE had no intentions of supporting Firestorm, and stating that the development team’s skill at making large maps could be important.

“I’m excited for Battlefield’s BR,” the Two-Time stated. “It’s a $120 billion industry and Warzone’s taken over this whole genre. [Firestorm] was like a pre-pre-alpha of it. ‘Let’s just get something out there, we won’t support it at all,’ and that’s exactly what they did.”

“I can tell you they didn’t give it any attention. I have a feeling that they’re really going to bring it for this next Battlefield. It’s going to be fast, explosive. I don’t know how much influence vehicles will have on the fights, but they do a really good job on bigger maps on how they balance some of that out.”

Clip starts at 4:05:11 for mobile users.

Neither EA nor DICE have officially confirmed that Battlefield 6 will have a battle royale mode on launch, but with the success of Warzone, alongside EA’s Apex Legends, it seems quite unlikely that they wouldn’t include one in their top FPS franchise.

Whether they learn from the disappointing release of Firestorm remains to be seen though. The mode was highly anticipated, but a lack of developer support and issues with the looting system saw fans drop it fairly quickly, with Warzone exploding in popularity just a few months later.

Despite all this, Dr Disrespect is desperate to get his hands on a Battlefield 6 battle royale, but whether it can truly compete with Call of Duty’s BR king remains to be seen.
