Rockstar has also confirmed a Bounty Hunters Role Expansion within the coming weeks. This will add new criminals, gear, and skills for both new and old players to unlock. In addition to 10 more Bounty Hunter ranks, players will also face new Legendary Bounties and a 100 Rank Outlaw Pass.

For added incentive, all Bounty Hunter missions in Red Dead Online are will award double XP throughout the week, so be sure to spring for them!

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.”

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.

Apex Legends pro finds Crazy Octane Jump Pad rotation on Olympus

An Apex Legends player landed a huge Octane Jump Pad rotation on Olympus to evade opposition. Here’s how he did it.

apex legends crazy octane jump pad rotation

Apex Legends esports player is responsible for this insane Octane Jump Pad rotation found outside of Gardens on Olympus.

Octane has been a big topic of conversation during Season 8, as the changes to his Jump Pad have been held in high regard.

Mokeysniper, an Apex Legends content creator, recently found and showcased an interesting OCtane rotation strategy in a recent video. He explained how players take the pad from and how to execute the jump.

Apex Legends Gardens

Originally, Octane’s Jump Pad was fairly underwhelming, allowing players to essentially shoot you out the sky. At the same time, wasn’t very useful for covering long distances.

The Season 8 patch allowed players to travel a much further distance when one slides into it. This change has effectively made Octane one of, if not the best rotation legends in the entire game.

Mokey states that he first saw this rotation on NRG Rogue’s Twitter account, @TTrebb, a pro Apex esports player. He also states that he doesn’t know who was the first to find it, as he also saw it on a Reddit post.

Whoever was the first to find this, it’s ambitious and gets you wondering how many other spots there are like this.

Another interesting rotation technique with Octanes Jump Pad is to combine it with the Trident. If you drive a Trident into a pad and use the vehicle’s boost at the same time, you can clear a massive distance and rotate to circle very quickly.

Apex Legends War Games trailer hints at huge Lifeline change

The new Apex Legends War Games event trailer may have hinted at a future Lifeline change that may potentially cause controversy.

Published

on

Apex Legends Lifeline nerf

Ever since the drone revive update for Lifeline in Season 5, players have been calling for her to be nerfed. It seems the new War Games trailer has hinted at a possible change to her kit.

On April 8th, Respawn Entertainment released the trailer for their highly anticipated mini-event, War Games. Not only does this update mean new skins and LTMs, but also a new patch with, of course, meta changes.

Apex Legends developers have admitted to the struggle of balancing Lifeline before, and have even stated that they would like to try a version of Lifeline “without the shield”.

Lifeline Drone Revive

Lifeline was originally one of the characters with the highest win rate in the game due to her passive ability to heal herself quicker than any other Legend.

However, since this passive was removed and replaced by her drone revive, she has become even stronger in the role of support; not just keeping herself alive but also effortlessly reviving her teammates.

In the trailer for War Games, it seems Lifeline’s drone revive remains. However, this time she doesn’t have the protective shield that many have been calling for to be removed.

It seems they will be finally trying out this new change to Lifeline, which could also potentially lead to further changes surrounding the Low Profile passive.

In another recent discussion with the developers, players also found out that Season 8 Legend, Fuse, had the worst win rate of all characters. Perhaps, this Lifeline change will be a part of some larger patch notes which could see less meta characters such as Rampart and Fuse getting changes to their abilities.

Apex Legends is a battle royale that seems to be constantly evolving, with talk of adding more game modes in the future. Although there was some backlash towards the War Games event, with players worried it will ruin the battle royale experience, these new modes draw players to the game and keep the player base fresh.
