Halo Infinite players furious over Reach armor locked behind “paywall”

Halo Infinite players are frustrated with cosmetic armor pieces from Halo Reach being locked behind a “paywall.”

Halo Spartan Armor

Halo Infinite contains armor from 2010’s Halo Reach, and fans are furious that they are unable to unlock certain cosmetics from that game because they’re locked behind a “paywall.”

Halo Infinite’s has received an overall positive reception for its core gameplay, but players have not been happy with the “cash-grab” cosmetic unlocks which give them a limited choice of colors at a high cost.

Now, players have discovered an armor from Halo Reach that can only be accessed by spending money on the premium battle pass. This has led to some backlash from the Halo community.

Reddit user DwP820 highlighted this issue in the Halo subreddit. Season 1: Heroes of Reach is meant to let players unlock cosmetics from the 2010 Halo title, but the only way to get them is by spending money.

“My favorite Reach shoulders, and now I can’t get them,” said the Redditor. “I even bought the stupid battle pass but I see that was a mistake now. It has maybe 10% of the Reach armor on it, the rest I guess we’ll have to shell out even more money.”

Many players expressed their frustration with this in the comments, with one of them claiming that the armor is locked “behind a paywall.” This gives them less freedom to customize their Spartans.

Players were hoping that they would be able to unlock cool new cosmetic looks for their Spartans by simply playing through the Battle Pass. Having to pay to access cosmetics has not sat well with fans.

“Officially killed all hope of getting my Reach kit to actually look like my Reach Spartan,” wrote one user. Halo players recently also criticized the Fracture: Tenrai skin for not being truly free.

At the time of writing, it remains to be seen how 343 Industries will respond to this. They made some major changes to the Battle Pass progression after players complained about it, so they do listen to fan feedback.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team: Team of the Week 18 predictions: Fernandes, Ben Yedder, Lewandowski

FIFA 22’s Team of the Week 18 is set to drop on January 19, and we’ve predicted who will get an in-form card with major stat upgrades.

The new year of football has been coming thick and fast, with plenty of games and goals. As always, EA Sports are set to drop some new in-form players in packs this week, and here are the players we think will feature in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team’s Team of the Week 18.

Each and every week, EA drops the Team of the Week into FIFA 22 Ultimate Team to reward the stars who made the headlines in the previous round of fixtures.

The chosen squad of players receive a special card in packs for the next week for FUT fans to hunt down and use to improve their teams.

Next up is Team of the Week 18, so here are our predictions of who will be included in the next FUT TOTW lineup.

FIFA 22 Team of the Week 18 release day

FIFA’s Team of the Week drops weekly, so players can expect TOTW 18 to release on Wednesday, January 19, 2022 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT, with an announcement from EA usually coming shortly before.

TOTW cards replace the normal cards of the player in packs for the duration of the week, meaning that the upgraded card is the only version it is possible to pack for seven days.

Each wave of in-forms remains in packs until they are replaced by the next Team of the Week on the following Wednesday.

Team of the Week 18 predictions

The Bundesliga, Serie A, Premier League, and Ligue 1 were in full swing last week with La Liga’s sole fixture taking a backseat to the aforementioned leagues.

Robert Lewandowski’s presence in TOTW 18 is all but confirmed as the clinical Striker scored three goals for Bayern Munich in a dominant 4-0 win against Köln. In terms of forwards making the cut, Ciro Immobile, Wissam Ben Yedder, and Erling Haaland all scored two goals over the weekend.

Elsewhere, Bruno Fernandes is a strong shout after scoring two goals in an incredible 2-2 draw against Aston Villa. Both Seko Fofana and Kevin De Bruyne scored mesmerizing game-winning goals for their clubs. Finally, speedy center-back Jeremiah St. Juste scored a rare goal for his club Mainz 05 and FUT players believe his stats fit the current meta perfectly.

We’ll have to wait until Wednesday to find out the official squad for Team of the Week 18, but, until then, here are our best predictions.

  • Peter Gulasci – RB Lepizig – GK
  • Jose Sa – Wolves – GK
  • Salih Dursun – Fatih Karagümrük – RB
  • Thilo Kehrer – PSG – RB
  • Brandon Williams – Norwich City – LB

Where to find Buttercake Klombos dinosaurs in Fortnite Chapter 3

Fortnite have added the new Klomobo dinosaurs into the game, giving players new ways to move around the map. Here’s where you can find them.

Published

on

The first Fortnite update of 2022 is here, introducing the Buttercake Klombos dinosaurs to the island. Here’s everywhere you can find them, how to feed them, and how to use them as rotation devices.

Fortnite’s 19.10 update will go down in history as the patch that brought back fan-favorite POI Tilted Towers. The legendary area has been missing from the game since 2019, but finally, players can “drop Tilted” and battle players in the city’s buildings.

Of course, that wasn’t the only thing added in this major patch, with the Buttercake dinosaurs that were teased in the Season 1 promo finally appearing on the island.

You’ll now see the creatures roaming around, but what can you do with them, and where can you find them? Here’s everything you need to know about Buttercake Klombos dinosaurs.

Where to find Klombos dinosaurs in Fortnite Chapter 3

The Klombos are peaceful dinosaurs that can be seen roaming across the map after the January 18 update. Be warned though, they will attack you if provoked, so make sure not to hurt them in the heat of battle.

The good news is that there are at least four Klombos dinosaurs roaming the map at any one time, so you’ll have plenty of chances to see one for yourself.

The bad news is that they don’t appear in the same place every match. According to leakers, their positions alter game to game, but your best chance of spotting one is in the northeast corner of the map. Avoid the sandy area in the south, as this has the least number of spawns.

How to feed Klombos in Fortnite

Feeding Klomos is relatively easy. You’ll need to keep a lookout for the new Klomberry consumable item that can now be found on bushes around Fortnite‘s island.

If you’ve upset a Klombo, you can feed it one of these treats to calm it down, then keep giving them to these beasts to gain a reward in the form of items it will spit onto the ground for you.

How to use Klombos to rotate around the map

Using Klombos to rotate around the map is simple. Simply jump on their tail, and run up the back of this creature. Once you reach its head, the dinosaur’s blowhole will shoot you up into the air.

This can be used to effectively escape from a battle you can’t win, or simply to head towards a different part of the map.

That’s everything we know about Klombos so far, but it’s always possible that these creatures have more hidden talents we don’t know about. Epic may also make changes to them as the season advances, so keep an eye out for new tricks or a different attitude.

Fortnite’s first patch of 2022 is finally here, bringing back the iconic Tilted Towers POI along with the new Klomberry item.

But the crossovers aren’t the only thing you should be excited about, as the fan-favorite Tilted Towers POI has finally returned for the first time since May 2019. On top of that, players also have a new consumable item in the Klomberry.

Fortnite 19.10 update patch notes

Tilted Towers returns in Fortnite 19.20 update

Fortnite shifted to a brand-new map with Chapter 3 and eagle-eyed players spotted a familiar POI under the ice – Tilted Towers.

Tilted Towers was a fan-favorite location from Chapter 1, offering the perfect action-packed drop spot for high kill games. A version of it returned in Chapter 2 with Salty Towers, but Chapter 3’s version is the real deal.

Tilted Towers can be found in the middle of the map, just below the island’s biggest lake. Tilted Towers has replaced Coral Castle, a change that some Fortnite players are disappointed about.

Klomberry consumable

Along with the exciting return of Tilted Towers, players also have a new consumable item to eat. The Klomberry helps to both heal players and add shields, and players can carry 15 of them at a time.

These berries can be found in Butter Cake Bushes, which can be found scattered randomly around the island.
