The Star Wars Battlefront 2 Beta Kicked Ass!

A short time ago, on a gaming platform not so far away, Star Wars Battlefront 2 saw its first open beta! Over the weekend, gamers on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC were given the opportunity to dive into the upcoming space fantasy shooter currently being developed by DICE. Though not everything was unlocked, the beta let us experience the rush of multiplayer in two separate modes, as well as a look at the new loot system and classes.

Galactic Assault

The Galactic Assault features 20-on-20 combat.The Galactic Assault is precisely what it sounds like: a large scale battle where teams of twenty players use all manner of strategy, teamwork, firepower, and sometimes good old fashioned idea of “running directly at the enemy” in order to claim victory.

As you take your first steps out onto the winding streets of Theed on Naboo, you’ll be greeted with the incredible detail that DICE has managed to pack into Battlefront 2. The streets are filled with swirling leaves dancing in the wind, the sky overhead is smeared with cloud cover, and the civilians and birds are fleeing for their lives – all this is the back drop to an epic battle with lasers flying everywhere.

Fighting as the Separatists, you must push your way into the Palace, a massive task that requires defending an MTT as it moves ponderously forwards. Otherwise, the Republic must use their might to destroy the MTT, lest you must retreat to the Palace for a final stand.

The model is similar to Overwatch’s Payload, but with a lot more vehicles, explosions, and massive shoot-outs. As you inch closer to the goal, you’ll be fighting down different streets or trying to get an angle into the palace rooms. It’s large-scale and packed full of action, barely five seconds will go by before you’re trying to gun down another player or use your abilities to help reach the objective.

Starfighter Assault

Starfighter Assault is fast-paced and intense.The Starfighter Assault is every Star Wars fans’ greatest wish come true. Take to the sky in the Fondor Shipyards in whatever fighter you please – be it an X-Wing, Y-Wing, or even a Tie Fighter.

It’s truly incredible to experience this side of Star Wars once more. The sounds of the engines screaming past you as you try desperately to either defend your own vessel from enemy attackers, or even the flipside, as you scramble to lock on and get those pesky enemies out of your way! One section of the fight saw us ducking and weaving inside a ship in an effort to take out engines and guns! You’ll need to steady hand in order to claim victory here.


The Strike playlist in Battlefront 2 is a highly-focused objective mode.The eight-player-a-side Strikes are intense battles set in incredible locations where one team must defend while the other attacks. In the Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta, the Strike was on Takodana, as recently seen in the J.J. Abbrams films. Attackers will need to locate and secure an artefact, and then take it to the extraction point. Meanwhile, the defenders will need to stop them using any means possible.

As you play through the thick forest, you’ll be relying heavily on sound to locate your enemies, as the impressive foliage does everything to break up the sight lines. Using the Elite Pros with the Tactical Audio Controller makes locating sneaky enemies a breeze, which is important as the artefact carrier can be difficult to spot. The sound of leaves and sticks crunching underfoot can give away an enemy location, as can the distant sparks of lasers. The entire match plays out as a giant tug-of-war, but in reverse, as each time tries desperately to move the object away from their own end zone.


The refined class system diversifies the battles.Throughout the various modes available, you’ll be playing as one of the many classes in Star Wars Battlefront 2. The four main classes are Assault, Heavy, Officer, and Specialist, each offering their own unique weaponry, abilities, and statistics.

There are, of course, more units to use, but these are locked behind an intuitive points system. The more kills you earn, objectives you clear, or the more teamwork you employ, the more points you earn.

You can then redeem these points and spawn as one of the special classes, with the Heroes costing a fair chunk of points! If you want to jump in as Darth Maul during the Galactic Assault, you need to amass 5,000 points, while a Rocket Droid will set you back 2,000 points. But choose wisely, because once you spend the points, you’ll need to earn more!

How it Feels

Star Wars Battlefront 2 captures the magic of the entire franchise.To put it simply, Star Wars Battlefront 2 feels incredible to play. Every aspect of the game has been improved over the first title. While we only had access to a few maps across a handful of modes, they all felt true to the source material. However, what really sells it is the audio design. Starting a match of Galactic Assault (especially when playing as the Separatists), is like diving into a real Star Wars battle. Your little droid legs will hit the ground running, diving between civilians that scatter while lasers start blasting across your field of vision.

Then, regardless of what side you’re fighting for, there’s nothing quite as pulse-pounding as hearing the loud crack of a bomb going off a few feet from you as a ship tears across the sky on a bombing run.

The entire experience can be taken to the next level on Xbox One if you make sure to switch on the Windows Sonic in the settings – it really lifts the sense of being in the thick of it when using the XO THREE or the Stealth 700 gaming headsets. Star Wars has never sounded so good!

Even the loot system is worth talking about, as it’s thrilling to earn enough credits to purchase a crate. These crates can drop all manner of cards, which are applied to Classes and actively help increase your lethality or help with cooldowns. The more you play Star Wars Battlefront 2, the more you will earn, allowing you to craft new weapons for your classes, upgrade your abilities, and just generally make your loadouts more awesome!

Though the Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta has been extended a few more precious days, it will still come to an end. But at least we don’t have long to wait until it launches on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on November 17!

How Audio Helps You Get Your Chicken Dinner in PUBG

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

DrDisRespect gets a win in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds while wearing a Turtle Beach Stealth 450 gaming headset.

It’s the phrase every PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds player strives to see at least once in their PUBG career, if not every single game. Securing your own chicken dinner can be a difficult task, especially when trying to find loot you need, contend with the ever present blue zone, or deal with pesky opposing players. While you might not be able to control all these elements, there is one thing you can control: your audio.

If you want to use audio to your advantage in PUBG, you need to know what you’re listening for and what things you should be focusing on. Keeping these tips in the back of your mind and practicing them every match will help get you one step closer to victory, and seeing those majestic words at the top of your screen as you win.

Sounds Guns Make

Each gun has its own distinct sound, learn what these are so you know what guns enemies are firing in the distance.

Guns are the bread and butter of PUBG. Without guns, there would be no survival of the fittest, no battle royale, and no burning desire for you to fill your belly with poultry. However, understanding the guns of PUBG is more than just knowing where to find them or how to use them, it’s about how to hear them.

When you’re using a gaming headset like the Elite Pro PC Edition, you will be able to hear the distinct sounds a weapon makes, how far away, and what direction they’re coming from. The reason this is so important is because it will allow you to recognize the gun an enemy is shooting. If you hear the crack of a single-fire weapon, you might be able to pick up that someone is using a Kar98k to snipe, which is critical information that will help you plan your next move. Had you been planning on running through an open field to reach a house? Well, after hearing the Kar98k, that might not be a good idea.

Similarly, rapid-fire shots might inform you that someone nearby has an Assault Rifle, and a keen ear will be able to distinguish what type of AR they’re using. The more you know about your enemy before you engage in combat, the better chances you’ll have of a positive outcome.

Listen for Enemy Locations

An empty town or enemies lying in wait? Listen out for enemy footsteps and gunshots to hear where they are.

More often than not, you will hear your enemy before you see them in PUBG. People make a lot of noise as they move about and shoot their guns, so keeping an ear out for these audio markers will help you figure out where your enemy is.

For example, in the event you’re approaching a town on foot and looking for a place to begin looting, take a moment to listen out for gunshots. As we mentioned above, this will help you know what guns they’re using, but more importantly, it will help you figure out what side of the town they’re fighting on.

This piece of information, gathered only from listening to the audio, will help you predict enemy movements and maybe even allow you to sneak up on them if they’re distracted in another fight. On the flip side, if you’re the one shooting, consider relocating after taking shots and get in the mind set of thinking that as soon as you shoot, someone knows where you are. A gunshot is essentially a flare indicating your position.

Listen for Cars

The sound of an approaching vehicle can be scary if you’re in an open field, but it should give you enough time to locate it and take out the driver.

When listening for gun shots and trying to discern your enemy’s location through triangulation, it’s also crucial that you listen for any type of vehicle, whether it’s approaching you directly or merely passing by.

An uncontested vehicular approach can often spell disaster for a team not willing to engage. As far as combat effectiveness goes, vehicles are not suitable to fight from and as such, the passengers within a vehicle are vulnerable to attack. However, if you are not listening out for vehicles and fail to hear one arrive, these players – who would be unable to shoot accurately while in the vehicle and moving – will have an opportunity to get out and move into an offensive position.

Taking out a vehicle as it’s heading directly to the town or houses you’re holding is a simple process, especially if your squad is able to quickly get into position to fire for full effect. A few bursts from an Assault Rifle and the driver can be taken out, leaving the other players at the mercy of the car – and it’s all thanks to the fact you were listening out for vehicles!

Footsteps and Movement

The rustling grass isn’t a snake, it’s an enemy crawling around.

Sometimes being quiet and sitting still is the best strategy, especially in built up areas and in the final few circles. Being stationary will test your patience, but it could help you detect another player’s movement.

Every surface in the game gives a different sound depending on whether someone is walking, sprinting, or even crawling along it. Sitting outside a house and waiting to see if you can hear movement within will often save your skin. Another player walking around the second story of a house creates loud thumping noises as their boots hit the floorboards. This sound alone will let you know if the downstairs is safe, giving you an opening to toss a stun grenade upstairs and rush them with a Vector.

At the same time, if you’re inside an attic looting, and happen to hear the crunch and rustle of boots on gravel and clothing against bushes, you have just given yourself an advantage. These sounds will help you locate an enemy outside and given you precious moments to get into a position where you can hit them as soon as they come in.

Focusing on the audio created by movement in PUBG is also important in the final circles, where everyone tends to crawl along on their belly. Lying patiently and listening for the shuffling noise can help you locate your enemy well before you see them.

All the intricate audio in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds can be difficult to take in when you first begin, but with enough time you will start to recognize important sounds. Gunshots in the distance will inform you of an enemy’s location and the weapon they’re using, an approaching car becomes an opportunity to wipe a squad, and the shuffle on the ground will let you know your final enemy is mere feet away, netting you that supremely delicious chicken dinner.

Call of Duty: WWII Beta Kicks Ass

The Call of Duty: WWII Beta blasted off last weekend on the PlayStation 4, and after dozens of hours of playtime, we can positively say that CoD: WWII is going to kick ass. The beta, though small, introduced players to the gritty and harsh reality of World War II as seen through the eyes of a classic, boots-on-the-ground Call of Duty title.

Mesmerising Audio

The visuals and audio work together to create a realistic World War 2 experience.

One of the first things you will notice about Call of Duty: WWII is the dramatic shift in audio. No longer do guns sound sci-fi and sleek; instead they sound hard, bulky, and extremely impactful. Each shell you fire from a Commonwealth will rattle your teeth, every squeeze of the trigger when firing an STG44 will follow through with a spit-fire of lead. The weapons sound straight out of the time period, and that’s before we even get to the satisfying ping of the M1 Garand.

Then there’s the audio from everything going on around you. The scream of an enemy bomb as it tears through the air is enough to weaken any CoD veteran’s knees as they sprint for any kind of cover. The airships and the mounted machine gun fire tear up the sky and the ground as dirt, mud, water and muck splatter around you. If the feel and visuals don’t make you think you’re right in the middle of trench warfare, the audio will pull you down into the mud and let you know where you are!

When using a headset like the Elite Pro with the Tactical Audio Controller, the subtle sounds are highlighted, allowing you to hear the footsteps of enemies, every reload they make, and every call they give out. It’s enough to give you the edge over your opponents, giving you precious moments to prepare for your next attack.

New Gamemode

The new mode "War" adds objective-based combat to Call of Duty.

Long-time Call of Duty fans will be extremely pleased to hear that Deathmatch, Domination, and Hardpoint return, but more importantly, a new mode enters the fray. Known only as “War”, this new mode pits two teams against one another in a classic, attackers versus defenders scenario.

Attackers must continually assault an objective, whether it’s capturing a house, building a bridge, planting a bomb on an ammunition storage, or supporting a tank through a street, the whole gametype demands teamwork and communication.

Meanwhile, the defenders must do everything they can to prevent the attackers pushing them back. It’s a superb addition to Call of Duty that focuses entirely on objective-based gameplay. This will likely become a classic Call of Duty mode that ships with every game from now on, but what’s most exciting is how this will translate into the eSports arena.

Loadouts and Attachments

Pick your soldier, Division, weapons, attachments, and more in CoD; WW2.

Call of Duty: WWII allows you to create multiple loadouts, this time called “Divisions”. Each Division belongs to a certain branch of the military: Infantry, Airborne, Mountain, Armored and Expeditionary. Each of these Divisions has access to its own specific weapons and attachments.

The Beta granted you the option to create your own or use a pre-made Loadout with weapons that would otherwise be locked until you ranked up. While you can use an Infantry weapon on an Airborne unit, you don’t receive the same rewards and it limits your progression.

Interestingly, some of the attachments you can unlock for your weapons are holographic sights and red dots in all but their name. There are also attachments that you would expect for each weapon, increasing their range, accuracy, rate of fire or some other statistic. Using these attachments, you can really begin to perfect your own playstyle as you level up your weapons and soldier. Moreover, certain weapons have unique attachments – the Airborne SMGs can have a silencer attached, helping keep you hidden.


Scorestreaks are back, but with a World War 2 theme!

Scorestreaks make a triumphant return, rewarding those players who are skilled enough to earn kills and complete objectives, all while avoiding death! From Molotov cocktails to recon aircraft, glide bombs and artillery barrage, each Scorestreak reward feels well-balanced and well-earned, if you can get the score to use them.

Though it’s only a small taste of what’s to come, the Call of Duty: WWII Beta gives an appealing insight into what we’ll be experiencing in November. With only a few days until Private Beta Weekend 2, make sure your pre-orders are placed so you can jump in on the action. See you on the field!

LawBreakers Tips

LawBreakers is Boss Key Productions’ first step into the high-speed gaming arena, and with Cliff Bleszinski manning the helm, LawBreakers has leaped into the air and kicked everything else in the face!

As far as fast-paced games go, LawBreakers is one of the speediest, with characters screaming around the map or flying through the air in zero-gravity. Before you dive into your first anomaly area, take a moment to read through our LawBreakers tips to help you walk away with more kills!

Play Every Character

Part of knowing how to get better at LawBreakers is understanding every character – even the ones your opponents are playing. Before you dive into your first real match (although trial by fire is an excellent way to learn), take a few moments in the training section to play each character.

Every character has its own strengths and weaknesses, and by learning these, you’ll be able to recognize what an enemy player is doing, or what they might do in response to your own attacks.

Listen For Supers

Another huge element of LawBreakers are the sounds. Whether it’s the announcer letting you know the objective is under threat or a Super is being cast, keeping an ear out for the audio cues in LawBreakers is going to keep you alive longer.

Whenever a character activates their super, listen for their call or the sounds they make. This can be the difference between life and death, as there’s nothing worse than running directly into Harrier’s devastating Convergence super.

One of the best ways to hear the audio cues is to obviously have a kickass headset. The Turtle Beach Elite Pro, with the Tactical Audio Controller, go hand-in-hand to ensure you never miss a beat. Your opponents will straight-up think you’re cheating when you get the jump on them because you can hear their freakin’ footsteps as they approach. There’s nothing quite like people mistaking your raw skill for hacks.

Know the Maps

This LawBreakers tip is one that will take its own time: know the maps. It can be tough at first, navigating your way around the many maps in LawBreakers, but after enough games, the general layout will become clear.

Once you get your footing with each stage, begin looking a bit deeper. You’ll find that each map has its own ebb and flow, as well as certain lines-of-sight where you can nail someone as they come around a corner or give you a good angle on an objective.

Another advantage of knowing the maps in LawBreakers is that it allows you to quickly and easily transition from one area to another. If you know how high a ledge is, you will be able to begin your jump at the correct time, or shift from the zero-g zone, into another objective, and around a corner without stuttering to a halt.

Practice Your Kit

In order to improve at LawBreakers you must know your character’s kit inside and out. A character’s kit is its abilities, but it’s also more than that. A kit is how each ability interacts with one another, and how combos can be linked together to enhance your damage output or combat efficiency.

Shooting Gunslinger’s guns before throwing his Tac-Knife into a combat-heavy area will let the enemies know where you are, but when done the other way around, you gain the advantage. The same goes with Harrier’s Laser Tag – tag your enemy before using the rest of your abilities to increase your damage potential.

Take the time during battles to figure out the best way to string together your attacks and abilities. This can be further improved by working with your teammates to see which abilities should be used first, and in what order.

Keep Moving

Arguably the most important LawBreakers tip is to keep moving! LawBreakers is incredibly fast, coupling high speed and bunny-hopping, with zero-g areas where your velocity increases, so it’s important to use all of these as much as possible to avoid getting stuck walking around.

Characters like Titan can use their rocket launcher to further increase their speed by firing at the ground as they sprint along and then jumping as the blast occurs to literally rocket jump around the map. While it does deal a little bit of damage, it is incredibly useful when you need to get to the objective quickly! Then there’s Assassin, with its super fast Dash ability. With three charges, you can very easily become a menace for your enemies as you literally dash around their attacks.

The other benefit of continually moving is that it prevents enemy players from landing easy headshots. A moving target is hard to hit – a target sprinting around, jumping into the air, and dashing about is next to impossible to hit, let alone kill.

LawBreakers is fresh out of the gates and kicking up a storm. Keep this tips in mind and you’ll find that your kill count will go up and up! What LawBreakers tips would you give to new players?

You Know You’re Screwed When You Hear These Sounds

The sounds in games can be thrilling. They can help you understand what’s going on around you, or they can also spell disaster. Some of that audio is designed let you know there’s nothing you can do – that’s it, “GAME OVER”, gg. Gaming is all fun and games (literally) until you hear these sounds, and then you know you’re screwed.

Super Smash Bros. – Home-Run Bat

You heard it just then didn’t you? That high-pitched, sword-clashing, chiiing as someone manages to connect a baseball bat to the forehead of your character. It all started back in Super Smash Bros. on the Nintendo 64.

The Home-Run Bat was an item that, if you saw it drop, you had to get it before your opponent. With the flick of the stick and the press of the A button at the right time, the Home-Run Bat would do a devastatingly quick wind-up, and if you were on the other end, you were almost certainly going to turn into a star.

Halo – Shield Warning

Halo wouldn’t be Halo if it wasn’t for its guns, enemies, combat, vehicles (okay, a lot of things), and its shields. The shield is the only thing that stands between you and imminent death by a single Spore on Legendary or someone blasting away at you with a Pistol.

As soon as you hear that shield pop and the warning klaxon, it’s all over, unless you can get into cover. But chances are, the moment you know you’re screwed is when you hear that buzzing, pulsing noise while running across an open field with no cover in sight.

Honorable Mention: When you get rocked into low health in that other Bungie title – Destiny

Mortal Kombat – Finish Him!

You fought valiantly. You fought to the best of your abilities, but it wasn’t enough. Your opponent, whether it was your older brother, someone online, a school friend, or the computer, had fought better. And now you awaited those dreaded two words.

Thus was the life of a Mortal Kombat match. Once it reached a certain point, there was no going back once the words, “FINISH HIM!” were screamed by the announcer. If you were the one kicking ass, it was amazing. If you were the one who was getting their tush kicked, you knew you were screwed as soon as you heard those words. Sub-Zero was about to rip your spine out.

Super Mario Bros. – Lose a Life

It was such a subtle sound, like the chirping of a tiny bird. It was the sound of losing a life in Super Mario Bros. The sound that preceded the tune was so tiny and so unassuming that it can often go overlooked, but it’s there, and it’s definitely hardwired into our brains.

The sound of Mario getting hit and doing the little brrrp noise was the moment we all knew we were screwed. Even before he flies up into the air and falls off the world, that little teeny,  tiny, itsy-bitsy sound tells us it’s over.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds – Grenade

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, or PUBG as the cool kids like to cool it, is an unmitigated success, with players flocking to it by the hundreds of thousands. For a game jam-packed with so many sounds (a lot of which is screaming in the lobby), there’s one sound that will strike fear into even the most hardened of players.

There’s nothing worse than hearing that familiar pin drop and heavy thunk of a grenade landing next to you. It’s like some sort of dangerous avocado that doesn’t want to be spread on toast, it wants to spread you all over that tree, or floorboards. This sense of fear is heightened when you’re using a headset like the Elite Pro and Tactical Audio Controller, with the quieter noises boosted – you can really feel the weight of the grenade hitting the ground.

It’s a terrible moment when you hear a grenade, that you didn’t throw, land near you. From that point, and for about 3 seconds after, you know you’re done for. Sometimes you’re lucky and the grenade will land far away, but if you can hear it land under your feet – that’s it, you’re screwed.

Friday the 13th: The Game

Finally, we couldn’t very well compile a list of sounds that let you know you’re screwed and not include a game that tells so much with its sound design – Friday the 13th: The Game. The Counselors are always trying to get away, whether it’s on foot, by car, or by boat, but they so rarely all make it out alive.

As Jason slinks around trying to kill you, there’s one noise that lets you know you’re screwed. While the “Ch-ch-ch-ah-ah-ah” sets the theme, when you hear a VHS tape scratch and turn to static, mere moments before your screen crackles and pops, you know that death is waiting for you. This sound means that Jason has just teleported near you, and if you’re out all alone in the woods, you’re screwed.

Video games are full of fun sounds, some of them are to add to the atmosphere, while others are to help you understand how a character works. There are also sounds that are meant to instill terror into your heart. Whether it’s a baseball bat knocking you for six, a grenade landing near your foot, or an announcer screaming “FINISH HIM”, these video game sounds let you know you’re screwed!
