GTA Online’s freshest piece of content, the Cayo Perico Heist, should normally be tackled with one more than person to ease the burden. However, it can be done solo, and we have a couple of tricks to help you quickly earn some gold bars solo.

It doesn’t matter what stage you’re at with GTA Online, more money is always welcome as one can never have enough unnecessary Sports Cars. The Cayo Perico Heist has a lot of potential loot for you to take home and buy said cars.

There are plenty of other commodities that can earn you some extra cash on top of the huge haul that Rockstar‘s Cayo Perico Heist has tucked away. But gold bars are one of the best money-makers in the entire game, adding as much as $500,000 on top of your main goal.

If you’re comfortable tackling hard fights against El Rubio’s guards, then you can find out how to easily bring home the gold bacon.

It’s fair to say that if you’re doing this solo then you’re going to need to make sure you’re stocked up and prepared for war. Once you’ve done that, then you can watch GTA YouTuber Vil2486i‘s easy method of accumulating gold bars during the heist.

In their video, the player is engaged in heated combat with El Rubio’s guards before coming to a locked room that requires a key to enter.

But instead of taking the conventional route by tracking down the enemy with the card for the door, you can actually manipulate the A.I to open it for you. In order to do this, complete the following:

  1. Find a building with two locked doors that appear to have key card slots with red lights on
  2. Peer inside to see if the room contains a guard
  3. Start shooting at the locked doors and windows, but not the guard
  4. Run back and forth between the doors
  5. If he’s standing near one of the doors, keep shooting the door
  6. Keep repeating this until the guard becomes impatient and unlocks a door himself
  7. Quickly dash into the building and kill him
  8. Collect the gold and escape

Just like that, you have a bigger score to take home, if you’re successful of course. You’ll still need to escape and avoiding damage to maximize your rewards.

So what are you waiting for? Stop free-roaming as that Submarine upgrade isn’t going to pay for itself.

The best & worst Halo games, ranked

We ranked all of the main Halo games from worst to best. Here’s our takes on which Halo games are worth your time.

Published

on

Here’s all of the best and worst Halo games ranked. This will be all of the main titles, so spinoff games like Halo Wars and Spartan Assault will be omitted.

With the release of Halo Infinite upon us, we thought we’d rank all of the Halo games from worst to best, so you know which games you should be playing if you’re a prospective player looking to get into the franchise, or a returning fan looking to experience the best games.

For the premiere gaming experiences, we recommend playing older Halo games on the Master Chief Collection on PC or Xbox One. You can always play the games on legacy Xbox 360 hardware, but the MCC is the best of both worlds, giving players the opportunity to change between remastered and old graphics on the fly for the first two games.

Games like Halo 3 and 4 will only give you the classic experience on Xbox 360, but playing on PC or Xbox One will give players a more high definition and smooth experience.

#7 – Halo 4

For the worst on the list, we went with Halo 4. This game was highly hyped, and upon release didn’t feel anything like a proper Halo game. The campaign was a bit lackluster, and the iconic multiplayer was revamped to play more like a Call of Duty title.

The custom loadouts and Spartan abilities were highly debated among the community, making Halo a much more casual game overall. While on paper this may have been a good idea to onboard more players, it, unfortunately, took away the classic formula with it, which drove away some hardcore players.

The only decent part for this title is the Campaign, which does have a few memorable moments. It starts off quite slow, but picks up as time goes on.

#6 – Halo 5: Guardians

Halo 5: Guardians was a let-down to many, and offered a poor campaign experience, which came under scrutiny due to the dodgy marketing called “Hunt The Truth”. Players were led to believe there would be a huge showdown between Spartan Locke and Master Chief, which ended up as a huge disappointment. Since then, many fans have accused Microsoft of misleading marketing regarding the campaign.

While the campaign is by far the worst of the franchise, the multiplayer is better than 4. Most of the original formula is still present, rewarding players for well-placed headshots and removing loadouts. Halo 5 has drawbacks though, with spartan dashes, ground pounds, and sprint for every player, which made the game much faster when compared to previous titles. This game also introduced loot box microtransactions to the franchise, which also sparked heated debates.

#5 – Halo 3: ODST

Note: From here on out for the list, all of these games are stellar Halo titles made by Bungie. They are all great in their own ways.

Halo 3 ODST is a campaign only “DLC” of 3, that was released as a standalone game. It sets a much different tone than the other Halo games, opting for a gritty and dark open-world experience in the city of New Mombasa on Earth.

The story follows a group of ODST soldiers during the initial Covenant invasion of earth. As the main character, you’ll uncover stories of the elite soldiers who fell during the invasion and get to experience the fights and sacrifices they made while fighting for their home.

Overall, this game is a must play for any hardcore player interested in the story of the Halo franchise.

#4 – Halo: Reach

Following the success of 3 and ODST, Bungie doubled down on prequels and delivered fans Halo Reach. Players will experience the heartbreaking story of the fall of planet Reach, through the eyes of Noble squad.

The game also includes a revamped multiplayer experience, which was the start of the divide of the Halo community. Loadouts were introduced in this game, giving players the option to choose spartan abilities, which included sprint, which was never an option in previous titles. A wave-based mode called “firefight” was also introduced.

#3 – Halo 2

Halo 2 is the second chapter of Master Chief’s story, and arguably the best campaign. Take control of both the Master Chief and The Arbiter as their unique stories unfold. Play as both the hero and the enemy, and discover there’s more than just one side to the war…

As for the multiplayer, Halo 2 is the ultimate classic gameplay experience. The servers for the old Xbox system are shut down, but you can still play classic gameplay through The Master Chief Collection.

#2 – Halo: Combat Evolved

Play where it all began. Experience the game that put Bungie on the map. Halo Combat Evolved shows the legendary beginning of the Master Chief story, and the beginning of one of the most iconic franchises in gaming.

You can experience Combat Evolved on the classic Xbox, or get the remastered version on Xbox 360. Steam also offers Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary in The Master Chief Collection, where you can play the game with the updated graphics, or the classic graphics. Online servers are currently running for classic gameplay in the MCC.

#1 – Halo 3

Halo 3 is one of the most iconic games of the Xbox 360 era. Halo 3 was the first Halo released for the Xbox 360, and gave players online experiences that will last as memories for a lifetime. The campaign was masterful, putting players in the shoes of the Master Chief as he fights to finish the Covenant War.

Beautiful set pieces, an amazing story, and a bittersweet ending await all players who experience the game. Once you finish the main story (or before), you can hop into the iconic Multiplayer experience and relive one of the best multiplayer games ever released.

Fortnite Baby Yoda back bling being called ‘pay-to-lose’

The Baby Yoda back bling cosmetic in Fortnite Season 5 is plagued by a bug that is causing players to become irritated.

The Mandalorian in Fortnite Season 5

A new Fortnite bug is causing aiming problems for players with the Baby Yoda back bling and is rendering the cosmetic useless. Now fans are Epic Games to provide a fix for this problem.

The Mandalorian headlined the Season 5 Battle Pass for Fortnite. Epic Games introduced a ton of new Mandalorian-themed cosmetics such as skins, a glider, the Razor Crest, and Beskar armor. There’s also a Baby Yoda back bling that you can equip at Level 100.

Many players have started to unlock the back bling as Season 5’s end draws near, but they’ve come to discover that it’s plagued by an extremely irritating bug that keeps them from being able to aim properly. Now, fans are demanding a fix from the developers.

New bug discovered in Fortnite’s Baby Yoda back bling

When you equip the Baby Yoda back bling it will block a good portion of the screen, and prevent you from seeing the game clearly. This happens after entering and exiting a car, which causes little Grogu to become static.

Reddit user SweggyBoi posted a clip of this bug in the official Fortnite: Battle Royale subreddit, and suggested that Epic Games either make the Child see-through when aiming, or move him more ot the left so that he doesn’t take up most of the screen.

One player added: “The view truly is awful with bulky skins and back blings. This one is super extreme though. Hope we just get some FOV settings finally so we can use more skins without having half the screen blocked.”

This post got over 10,000 upvotes at the time of writing, and other fans brought up a different problem with the back bling. The cosmetic tends to clip through walls or show around corners while you’re trying to hide from enemies.

The recent customizable superhero skin controversy led to the devs being accused of supporting “pay to win” cosmetics, and now the back bling is being called “pay to lose” due to its poor functionality in combat situations.

With Season 5 coming to an end on March 15, many Fortnite players have worked hard to get through most of the Battle Pass and unlock this cosmetic. Hopefully, we’ll see a fix for this problem before that time.

Battlefield 6 to be rebranded, plus a remaster coming?

Battlefield may not be called Battlefield 6 after all. EA may also be working on a Battlefield remaster to go alongside their new game.

Published

battlefield 6 rebranding

Due to poor sales for Battlefield 5, EA may be ditching a number for the next entry in the long-running franchise. There are rumors that they are working on a remaster of Battlefield 3 as well.

Compared to most of the games in the Battlefield franchise, Battlefield 5 grossly underperformed selling just over 7 million copies. It fared even worse when the numbers stacked up to the series’ previous entry Battlefield 1 – which sold well over 15 million copies.

According to reliable sources, it seems like EA may be considering releasing the newest game without a number at the end of it.

There’s also a possibility that EA has some of their team working on one of the most popular Battlefield games too in Battlefield 3.

Battlefield 6 rebranding

The leak comes from Viral Junkie CEO – Tom Henderson. He has been right on many occasions using his sources within the industry to deliver accurate leaks.

In his latest YouTube video, he discusses several rumored aspects of the new Battlefield game. He also discusses how the game may be getting a title change.

Henderson says: “I believe it’s either going to be called Battlefield 6, or simply Battlefield.”

Reasons for this are that Call of Duty has recently gone down this road with 2019’s Modern Warfare reboot. He also points out that he doesn’t believe Bad Company 3 will be the name of this game either.

The thinking behind ditching the “6” in favor of just Battlefield is the general feeling that it would be a continuation of the poorly-received Battlefield 5. Meaning EA wants this to feel new and distant from the previous entry in the series.

BF3 remaster?

7 months ago a YouTuber by the name of Daqarie posted a video showing apparent footage or information about a Battlefield 3 remaster.

Daqarie has previously leaked BF1 and BF5 information that turned out to be accurate. But the BF3 remaster video on their YouTube channel has since been removed. It’s unclear if this was their own choice or because they were asked to take it down.

Henderson says that the YouTuber got their information from a QA Tester at EA, who no longer works there. So at this juncture, it’s a bit hard to be invested in the prospect of a remaster.

He also goes on to say that it makes no sense to do a remaster. Henderson explains: “It splits the player base and the community and overall I think that Call of Duty releasing two titles at the same time, with a remaster, made sense because you had Infinite Warfare, which was a futuristic title, then you had Modern Warfare which was a modern title.”

  • Skip to 1:55 for Battlefield rebranding
  • Skip to 4:54 for Battlefield 3 Remastered

Unless the remaster is only going to be the campaign, like Modern Warfare 2 did, it would make very little sense for EA to have two online communities of similar style games running simultaneously.

As for both stories, we are primarily going off of the leaks reported by Tom Henderson so there is nothing official yet regarding Battlefield 6.

Once EA do begin to roll out factual information for us, we’ll report it here.
