Looter Shooters for Xbox
Many action RPGs are more commonly referred to as “looter shooters,” games that combine loot hunting and loadout mechanics you might find in something like Diablo with the gameplay you might find in Halo or Gears. Some of the best Xbox games you can get fall under the looter shooter category, and if you’re on the hunt for something new to grind, then these are the games you want to play whether you’re on Xbox One, Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S.
The best of the bunch
With so many great games to choose from, it’s hard to single out any one ‘winner,’ but we do have some recommendations on what you should play. And that start’s with Bungie’s epic, Destiny 2. The fact it’s free to start now means there’s literally no reason not to try it. With the upgrade for Series X and Series S finally adding 60 FPS gameplay, there’s never been a better time.
You also simply can’t ignore the Borderlands series, the forefather of modern looter shooters, and every single game is available to play on the Xbox. Whether you opt for the Legendary Collection which contains the first three games and associated DLC or 2019’s Borderlands 3, you have hundreds and hundreds of hours of loot grinding goodness.
And if it’s content you’re looking for, then Warframe is definitely worth a look with nearly seven years worth of support already and no sign of slowing down. This massive game can be a little tricky to get into, but once you get to grips with it, then you’ll find it immensely rewarding.
And last but not least, you should certainly consider signing up for Xbox Game Pass. Three of the titles here are already available to play in it, including the full Destiny 2: Beyond Light experience, as well as the huge library of all different types of games.
