Halo Infinite is one of 2021’s biggest games and the name “Halo” still carries an unbelievable amount of weight and gravitas. Here are the consoles that Master Chief’s newest entry, in his long-running saga, will be coming to.
After settling for a bit more of a part-time role in Halo 5: Guardians, Master Chief is front and center of 343 Industries‘ Halo Infinite as he looks to make a huge impact on the next-gen race.
But some people don’t seem to be completely sure of which platforms you’ll be able to find everyone’s beloved Sci-Fi soldier. Here are the full details.
Halo Infinite platforms
The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X has welcomed us to a new generation of video games, producing graphics we never thought possible in vibrant, bouncing worlds.
But the nature of their cross-compatibility has also posed constant questions about every subsequent game release. People don’t seem to know which consoles any game is on now, and this appears to be the case with Halo Infinite.
So let’s clear up some of those issues now, here are the platforms that Halo Infinite will be available on at launch:
- Xbox Series X
- Xbox Series S
- Xbox One
This will be great news for Halo players that either doesn’t want to or haven’t been fortunate enough to upgrade to next-gen Xbox consoles just yet.
In the same way that Sony has made Spider-Man: Miles Morales and other big, upcoming AAA titles available on PS4 as well, it seems that Halo Infinite is receiving the same treatment. The game will obviously not run optimally on the Xbox One, but at least the option is there.
Due to the ongoing circumstances in the world, Halo Infinite’s release date has been pushed back from its original date of December 2020 to Fall 2021.

Rockstar shuts down popular GTA Online hacking website to stop cheaters
Rockstar are trying to end GTA Online cheaters by taking down one of the biggest websites in the world for GTA Online hacking.
Rockstar is clamping down one of the internet’s top websites for GTA Online hacking in a bid to deter hackers.
Given that GTA in the PS2 and PS3 days was about exploring the open-world and having fun in your own way – cheats were the way to help do this. But GTA Online is not intended to be a single-player experience; it’s presented as a fabulously deep, online multiplayer game using microtransactions.
So you can see why Rockstar has spent years trying to cut down on hacking and cheating. Plenty of people have been finding ways to gain access to money illegally and Rockstar is trying to finally put a stop to it.
GTA Online hackers shut down by Rockstar
Whether it’s because people don’t want to spend money or because they want to take flight in the Ponte Deluxo for free – hacking is rife in GTA Online.
As such, hackers are always finding ways to gain free access to a lot of the game’s premium content without having to buy Shark Cards.
But Rockstar has finally put its foot down and gone directly to one of the biggest GTA hacking sites. LunaCheats was previously a go-to for many GTA Online players that wanted to hack the game and make a few million GTA$.
However, Take-Two Interactive – the publishers that own Rockstar Games – have managed to make LunaCheats stop all of their activities. Anyone heading to their website now will be greeted by a white screen with a simple message.
“After discussions with Take-Two Interactive, we are immediately ceasing all maintenance, development, and distribution of our cheat menu services. We will also be donating our proceeds to a charity designated by Take-Two.
We apologize for any and all problems our software has caused to the Grand Theft Auto Online community.”
It’s a strong message from Rockstar who now seem to be enforcing a zero-tolerance policy on any form of GTA Online hacking.
This could very well be the beginning of the end for these types of websites.

How to counter Bloodhound’s ultimate in Apex Legends
There is a neat little trick that can help you use Bloodhound’s ultimate ability against them in Apex Legends.
A few Apex Legends players have discovered a characteristic of Bloodhound’s ultimate that highlights the character’s location, and they’ve used this helpful trick to counter this move in combat.
There are various unique characters for you to choose from while playing Apex Legends. All of these Legends have their own special abilities, which make them ideal for different combat strategies.
Bloodhound has a high pick-rate and is considered the second most popular Legend in Season 7. Their Beast of the Hunt ultimate allows them to gain speed and highlights their enemies, which makes it hard to hide from them.
However, this ability has a few major giveaways that can reveal Bloodhound’s location if they’re camping. If you’ve noticed these, then you can use them to your advantage.
Simple Apex Legends trick to counter Bloodhound’s ultimate
One thing that telegraphs Bloodhound’s ultimate ability is the pulsating sound that you can hear if you’re nearby. You can also see the dome that appears when they begin scanning the area. However, there’s also a third sign of this ability that you should watch out for.

The Beast of the Hunt has a distinct glow that becomes visible when Bloodhound is camping behind a wall or door. Reddit user dewag posted a clip in the Apex Legends subreddit, in which they were able to spot a Bloodhound that was hiding in a corner.
The Legend was trying to heal while sitting right up against the wall, and the player noticed the glow of the ultimate ability through the opening. They then took advantage of this to catch Bloodhound completely by surprise.
However, you should keep in mind that this trick is extremely situational, so you’ll have to count on Bloodhound using their ultimate while sitting in a corner in order – apart from maybe in the final few circles.
That said, this is still an incredibly useful tactic to employ in combat. Once you know where the Legend is hiding, you can flush them out with a grenade, shot, or even by using your own ultimate ability. So be sure to try it out whenever the opportunity presents itself.
