The Top 5 Best Halo Weapons of all time

Here’s our picks for the top 5 best weapons in the Halo franchise. This list will be a mix of power weapons and starting weapons.

With Halo Infinite being the next exciting step in the franchise, we thought we’d reminisce back to our top 5 favorite weapons in the history of Halo.

Halo has no shortage of amazing weapons, many bringing back nostalgic memories for fans. With every new installment came some exciting new weapons, all with their own great mechanics.

Some of these weapons translated well into the competitive gameplay of Multiplayer, changing the way the game was played. Here are our picks for our top 5 weapons in Halo. This list will be a mix of power weapons and starting weapons.

#5 – Rocket Launcher

Halo's Rocket Launcher

Halo 3’s M19-B SAM Rocket Launcher was no joke. Shoot this into a building or a crowd of enemies would give you easy double or triple kills. If you missed your first shot, you’d still have your second one ready to go to finish off enemies or get a second shot at an easy kill.

The fight for this weapon would always be a bloody one at the start of games, but the player who managed to wield this weapon would clear out objectives with ease.

#4 – Sniper (Halo 2, Halo 3)

Halo 3 Rocket Launcher

Simply put – the snipers in Halo 2 and Halo 3 felt amazing. The feeling of landing a well-placed headshot was unmatched by other weapons. The sniper took skill, and would never one-shot an enemy at full health unless you hit them in the head.

The weapon also had a unique ricochet property, sending missed shots flying off walls until it hit an enemy or lost momentum. Ricochet shots were always awesome to witness, especially in Halo 3.

#3 – Halo 2’s Battle Rifle

Halo 2's Battle Rifle

The Battle Rifle is the most iconic weapon in the Halo franchise. This burst rifle takes down enemies in just a few well-placed bursts to the head and is the ultimate weapon of skill for any Halo player.

We believe all the Battle Rifles are great in their own way, however, the Halo 2 Battle Rifle was especially nostalgic.

#2 – Halo Combat Evolved’s Magnum

Halo Combat Evolved's Magnum

Halo Combat Evolved never saw a formal online multiplayer mode until the introduction of the Anniversary release on the Xbox 360 and later on the Master Chief collection. The Magnum was the standard spawn weapon, and it packed a punch at all ranges.

It’s hailed as the most overpowered starting weapon in the franchise. In just a few headshots, you can take out enemies from any range. It made almost all other weapons useless, and since Combat Evolved couldn’t be patched, there was no changing this weapon as games do now.

#1 – Halo 2: Energy Sword

Halo 2's Energy Sword

The Halo 2 Energy Sword is the most lucrative power weapon of the franchise for one simple reason: it has unlimited uses. The sword has no durability as it did in Halo 3, which means players would fight for the weapon for the entire game.

Simply put, there were no downsides of this energy sword, which made it significantly overpowered.

That concludes our list of the top 5 weapons in the Halo franchise. If we missed any, or if you have any favorites, don’t forget to tweet us @CharlieIntel.

How to get Fortnite’s new Pizza Party: Locations & what it does

Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite’s Pizza Party item, including where to find it and what it does.

Published

You can use Fortnite’s new Pizza Party item to share pizza slices with your teammates. Here’s where you can find Pizza Party and how you can use it in Fortnite Chapter 3.

There is a ton of fun to be had in Fortnite Chapter 3, whether by finding Klombo dinosaurs around the island or unlocking skins like the Hawkeye outfits. Now, you can also collect pizza in the game.

The Pizza Party item is another new addition that greatly benefits your entire squad. You’ll also need to know where to find it for a Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 Quest that requires you to ‘take pizza slices.’

Here’s everything you need to know about Pizza Party in Fortnite.

Where to find a Pizza Party in Fortnite

Tomatohead location on Fortnite map

You can purchase the new Pizza Party item from the NPC Tomatohead at the Pizza Pit restaurant. You can find this location at the Tilted Towers POI which has returned to Fortnite Island.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Head to the Pizza Pit restaurant
  2. Interact with Tomatohead to speak with him
  3. Select the Pizza Party item and purchase it
  4. Pizza Party will be added to your inventory

Purchasing the Pizza Party item will cost you 50 Gold Bars. If you don’t have this amount saved up already then you can check out our detailed guide on how to earn Gold Bars in Fortnite.

Alternatively, you can also collect a Pizza Party from Chests and Supply Drops or by destroying Loot Llamas. While this doesn’t guarantee that you’ll find the item right away, it’s certainly the cheaper option.

What does a Pizza Party do in Fortnite

Pizza Party in Fortnite

Fortnite’s Pizza Party item recovers your Health and Shield. You simply need to approach it and press the ‘consume’ button to use it. You can also save it in your inventory by pressing ‘take’ instead.

While pizza slices can restore 100 Health, they will only recover up to 50 Shield. So, if you’ve already recovered your Shield, you may want to leave some slices behind for your teammates to use.

One Chapter 3 Quest tasks you with taking a pizza slice from a Pizza Party. You can get this done by simply aiming and throwing a Pizza Party down to the ground similar to how you would toss a grenade.

Klombo dinosaur in Fortnite

You can also feed pizza slices to a Klombos dinosaur by throwing a Pizza Party near one of them. While Klomberries are their favorite food, they won’t mind eating the slices and leaving behind loot for you to collect.

That covers everything you need to know about Fortnite’s new Pizza Party item. It can greatly help your entire squad when your Health and Shields are low, so it’s worth going out to find the item.

Apex Legends ad teases Season 12 Olympus map update & care package changes

Apex Legends Season 12 will bring a fresh update to the Olympus battle royale map, which players have been given a sneak peak to in a new ad.

Published

Fans have discovered a new ad for Apex Legends which teases changes to the Olympus map and care package updates coming in Season 12.

Apex Legends Season 12 is almost upon us, along with the new Legend Mad Maggie, which also means a new addition to the Apex Legends Voice Actors roster.

The new season promises brand new content and changes, including a map update to the Olympus map. The recent Season 12 reveal blog didn’t give too much away about the Olympus map update, but a new Instagram ad has given players a sneak peek.

After not being able to play on the map for the duration of Season 11, the return of Olympus is pretty exciting for players. On top of this, it’s even more exciting to hear that the map will be getting an update.

It’s time for Olympus to get a make over, and despite not giving much away in the Season 12 reveal blog, a new Instagram ad has given players a sneak peek.

The Instagram ad is a sponsored story by Respawn, promoting the third anniversary of Apex Legends. If you’re interested in the rewards for Apex’s anniversary, definitely check out our piece on the event.

In the ad, gameplay shots are taken on the Season 12 version of Olympus, and in certain parts of the video, you can actually make out some of the new changes.

As Alpha Intel pointed out, the ad gives players a look at the new skybox and surroundings on Olympus, as you can see flying cars and the city that Olympus floats above.

In some other portions of the video, you can also make out a new structure that isn’t familiar. GarretLeaks pointed out this new structure in a recent video and even suggested that it may be placed “outside Bonsai Plaza.”

Further, towards the end of the ad, Wattson can be seen firing an Alternator that doesn’t have a barrel on it. Players believe this is a hint towards it coming out of the care package, as the care package version has a barrel on it.


We’ll have to wait and see if the speculation is correct about Season 12. For now, check out the news about a brand new Star Wars FPS games by Respawn Entertainment.
