The Halo Infinite developers made some major changes to the Battle Pass challenges following player complaints, but some fans still feel that they’re “ruining the game.”

Halo Infinite players have taken issue with the game’s Battle Pass progression system. XP could only be earned through completing challenges at the start of the multiplayer beta, with 50 bonus XP awarded for each completed match.

The developers listened to player complaints and gave a major boost to the XP payouts of each match. However, many fans still feel that the Battle Pass challenges are too troublesome.

Reddit user ‘Pax_Libertas_’ shared a screenshot of their Halo Infinite gameplay. It showcased four players standing on a helipad and waiting for the AV-49 Wasp vehicle.

The Redditor stated that this was probably because they have a Battle Pass challenge to complete that requires them to use the Wasp. This means that they won’t be able to earn the XP they need until the vehicle arrives.

“This is really ruining the game,” wrote the Redditor. “Is anyone else experiencing this?” A few of the commenters came up with suggestions for improving the challenges in Halo Infinite.

“Make all challenges doable at the same time,” commented one user. “It’s so annoying to get a new challenge and be like I just did that in the last 3 games. Then you can manage to do it again for 12 games. Just frustrating.”

Some of the commenters were less critical of the Battle Pass challenges, stating that other Halo titles featured similar situations where players sat around and waited at the spot where a vehicle would spawn.

“I get the issues with this game and the challenges, but don’t ever pretend teammates didn’t camp a sniper, rocket, tank, literally anything spawn in past games,” commented one user.

The developers have definitely put in the effort to make the Battle Pass progression a bit easier, with players now achieving 1,000 XP just by playing six games a day instead of the 20 previously required.

Doom Slayer in Fortnite

A brand-new crossover might be arriving in Fortnite as leakers are claiming that Epic Games are planning to add a Doom Slayer skin to the battle royale title.

Epic Games have surprised Fortnite players throughout the seasons by introducing collaborations that add new crossover content to the game, including cosmetic skins for Dragon Ball characters.

Fortnite has also featured crossovers with other video game franchises such as Street Fighter, and new leaks claim that the battle royale title has entered into a collaboration with the Doom franchise.

Doom is a popular first-person shooter franchise that centers around a marine known as Slayer and his epic quest to battle an invasion of demons from hell. This character has also been given the name ‘Doomguy’ by fans of the series.

On August 19, prominent leaker ‘HYPEX’ tweeted that Epic Games are currently planning to introduce a Doom Slayer cosmetic outfit to Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 as part of a brand-new crossover.

This information reportedly came from another leaker ‘MidaRado,’ and while the exact release date of this brand-new Fortnite skin wasn’t revealed, HYPEX claims that it is “most likely coming next week.”

HYPEX added that Doom 64 is currently available for free on the Epic Games store until August 25 and Fall Guys also has Doom-themed skins. So, it wouldn’t be surprising if Epic Games also added Doom Slayer to Fortnite.

That said, it’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and this information has yet to be officially confirmed by Epic Games. So, we won’t know for sure if this is accurate until next week.

Overpowered Apex Legends double pump glitch returns in Season 14

Apex Legends players have discovered the return of the double pump glitch in Season 14, creating controversy in the community.

The infamous double pump glitch has returned in Apex Legends Season 14, leaving players worried about people abusing the bug.

The Apex Legends Season 14 update brought a variety of changes to the game, giving dataminers a new game version to sift through and find details around the potential Season 15 Legend.

As the update brought so much new content and changes, it’s normal for new bugs and glitches to show up, which players have seen with the unlimited loot exploit.

However, players have now discovered that the infamous double pump glitch has returned, making the Peacekeeper and Sentinel even more deadly for those who abuse the bug.

Apex Legends content creator Mokeysniper brought the return of the double pump glitch to the community’s attention on August 18, posting a video of it in action.

The glitch allows players to shoot the Peacekeeper and Sentinel much faster than they should be able to, giving those who use the glitch an unfair advantage over others.

The glitch is done by shooting, reloading, swapping to your secondary, and swapping back very quickly. If players are able to get the timing right, they can repeat this process to shoot the Peacekeeper/Sentinel in a ridiculously fast manner.

This is clearly a glitch that needs to be addressed and resolved quickly by Respawn, as if it starts to be abused by players, it could create chaos.

In the comments of the Twitter post, there are a few videos of players showing them doing it in-game, which is a worrying sign. Some are very worried about it being absued, with one comment saying “I actually hate that you guys post this kinda s***. It’s always super sick to deal with some broken weird s*** in ranked.”

Hopefully, Respawn can get a fix out for this as soon as possible, much like they were able to do for the accidental removal of tap strafing.
