How to open Halo Infinite Loot Caves

Halo Infinite’s Big Team Battle mode is all about teamwork but arming your Spartans to the visor with powerful weapons also helps. Luckily, Fragmentation has Loot Caves full of equipment, and here’s how to open them.

Season 1 of Halo Infinite’s Multiplayer is well and truly underway, and millions of Spartans are dropping in to grind the new Battle Pass.

Big Team Battle is Halo Infinite’s most epic game mode, putting 24 players’ reflexes and teamwork to the test on grand, open maps. It’s also the perfect mode to try out the game’s huge arsenal of weapons.

In fact, if you’re playing on Fragmentation, there are entire rooms brimming with guns. Here’s how to open the Loot Caves on the Fragmentation map.

Where to find Loot Caves on Fragmentation

343 Industries have supplied two Loot Caves on Fragmentation, both with huge grey and red doors guarding them. They are on opposite sides of Fragmentation – on the top and bottom if you look at it from a landscape perspective – in between the two bases at either end.

It’s hard to miss them, as they stand out well from the lush greenery seen on the rest of the map.

Accessing one, or stopping the enemy team from doing so, can completely change the tide of a fight. Each one has powerful weapons hiding inside, as well as powerups like Active Camo or the Grapple Hook.

With so much valuable loot inside, these spots are going to be heavily fought over, so expect a battle to open them.

Each Loot Cave has a lock that can be interacted with. Doing so will send out your personal AI companion who will begin trying to open the vault.

It sounds straightforward, but it takes 20 seconds for the AI to break the lock and open the doors. If you move more than 25 meters away from the door, the timer will stop and reset

During this time, the enemy is probably going to bombard you with shots and grenades, so make sure you have a capable team with you to give you some cover.

That was everything you need to know about how to open the Loot Caves in Halo Infinite. If you’re on the wrong end of a match, these vaults are just the thing to flip it on its head.

Smoke grenade in Battlefield 2042

Battlefield 2042 players have across a new bug that lets them completely negate the effects of enemy smoke grenades, making them completely useless in combat.

Battlefield 2042 has been facing quite a few problems since its arrival, from players complaining about the map design to Shroud explaining why weapon bloom is ruining the game.

Now, players have discovered a bug involving smoke grenades and one of the in-game menus, which lets players turn off the effects of that piece of gear, making it completely useless during fights.

Reddit user Jagsfootball51 highlighted this glitch in the Battlefield 2042 subreddit. “You can completely negate a smoke grenade just by opening the menu and going to [the] Collections [tab],” they stated.

The clip showcased the Redditor looking at some enemies who then threw down a smoke grenade before attempting to revive their teammates. However, the player was able to negate the smoke grenade.

They did this by opening the in-game menu and heading to the Collections tab before returning to the game. The enemy smoke grenades had completely disappeared from their screen after this.

Many of the commenters were surprised by this glitch and expressed their frustration with how this makes grenades completely useless. “This game is so broken,” one user wrote. “This needs an insta-fix.”

At the time of writing, it’s unclear whether or not the developers are aware of this issue. Hopefully, they’ll investigate the bug and implement a fix because this might be game-breaking.

Season 11 of Apex Legends has tons of characters to choose from to enjoy its several maps. But who has the top Season 11 pick rates in Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale shooter?

Apex Legends hit the ground running when it launched with eight different characters to choose from in its rival battle royale offering. The game suffered a notable lull when Call of Duty: Warzone launched, but with many players jumping ship to Respawn’s game in Season 10, Apex Legends Season 11 is pretty popular with gamers and streamers alike.

There are now a whopping 19 different Legends to choose from, giving players a headache before each game. The newest one is Ash, she debuted alongside the new Storm Point map.

Between the Arenas mode and Ranked Leagues to compete in, thousands of matches have already been logged in Season 11, and we will break down and find the Legends with the highest pick rates in Season 11.

Apex Legends Season 11 pick rate ranked list

This is our complete list of every character pick in Apex Legends, and we’ve ranked them in order to let you know which are favored more.

Here is every Apex Legends pick rate in Season 11 ranked, as of November 12, 2021, according to Apex Legends Status:

  1. Octane – 11.9%
  2. Wraith – 11.4%
  3. Ash – 10.7%
  4. Bloodhound – 9.1%
  5. Pathfinder – 8.7%
  6. Valkyrie – 6.8%
  7. Lifeline – 5.8%
  8. Bangalore – 4.8%
  9. Horizon – 4.5%
  10. Loba – 4.2%
  11. Gibraltar – 3.4%
  12. Mirage – 3.3%
  13. Fuse – 3.2%

Most picked legends in Apex Legends Season 11

5. Pathfinder – 8.7%

Pathfinder has slowly climbed his way up the rankings and gained many fans to become a part of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 8.7% and counting.

As a Recon class, Pathfinder simply excels in movements and traversing the game’s various maps. His Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun are simply invaluable assets that will help any team in a pinch – either because of the circle or a third-party situation. He consistently manages to stay in the top 5 as a result.

4. Bloodhound – 9.1%

Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 11.

Bloodhound nearly always stays in and around the 8-11% mark as a season goes on, and they currently stand at 9.1%. They are easily the top Recon class to use in Apex Legends, thanks to their tracking tools and incredible skills, plus, their Beast of the Hunt Ultimate is priceless.

3. Ash – 10.7%

As is always the case with a new season of Apex Legends, the debut of a new Legend usually drags tons of players away from their beloveds, and that has happened with Ash as she is in the top three with a pick rate of 10.7%.

Ash is a very offensive and aggressive Legend whose abilities let players launch deadly projectiles and also mark fresh deathboxes left behind by fallen players. This can help track players that have won a recent battle and could be prone to being jumped.

Ash’s Phase Breach ultimate can also give her a huge edge in battle and lead to potentially game-winning plays if used correctly.

2. Wraith – 11.4%

Another starting legend, Wraith has been a consistent pick throughout Apex Legends’ lifetime, and she is still well-represented at 11.4% in Season 11.

Wraith’s stand-out features are her ability to get out of trouble very quickly – teammates included. Her abilities allow her to sense danger, become temporarily invulnerable, and create portals to escape predicaments. It’s easy to see why Wraith continues to be an absolute fan-favorite in Apex Legends Season 11.

1. Octane – 11.9% – Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 11

The pick rate king has returned in Season 11 after the Ash hype died down. With an 11.9% pick rate, the speed demon is currently the most popular Legend in Apex Legends Season 11.

Aside from his amusing quips, he is the perfect balance of offense and defense. Despite being regarded as an offensive Legend, Octane can greatly increase his sprint speed which is useful for both attack and running away.

But most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which can send him, and friendly players, high up into the air.


That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 11. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, affecting the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.

We’ll be sure to keep this updated regularly so you can stay on top of the in picks, and don’t forget to check out our guide on the best audio settings for Apex Legends Season 11.

While some have been hoping for the return of classic modes, it seems 343 Industries are more focused on the future of the game, with new modes coming under supposed Cyber Showdown and Tactical Ops event.

Halo leaker ‘HaloNoticiasMX’ claims that Cyber Showdown will bring new versions of Slayer, King of the Hill, CTF, and One Flag. Tactical Ops receives the same modes, with the additions of Strongholds, Elimination, Attrition, and Oddball.

Halo are fans are delighted to hear that 343 are already working on old content, but have been calling for classic modes like ‘Swat’ to return. The devs do have some work to do with current modes though, as Ranked Oddball is awarding wins to teams who lose the match.

Players are also calling for the return of the pre-game lobby, so they can see other players’ Spartans make customization worthwhile.
