After publicly slamming "Star Wars Battlefront," Benjamin Burnley, the vocalist of the rock band, Breaking Benjamin is now ranting against Microsoft's "Halo 5: Guardians."

The frontman even advised gamers not to purchase and play the latest installment in the "Halo" saga.

According to Gamespot, Burnley recently turned to Instagram to post a photo of an Xbox One controller that he recently wrecked. The singer noted that he destroyed the device in a fit of rage after playing through "Halo 5."

Apparently, this was the second controller that he smashed while taking on the game. Based on his post, it seems the main thing he hates about the game is its online gameplay requirement.

"Another controller lost to this abysmal piece of crap game called 'Halo 5,'" he posted on his account. "If you get kills in the game it's because you're connection is better. Not skill period. 'Halo 5' owes me 2 controllers about 25 wraths, Scorpions, ghosts and countless power weapons."

"Every time I give the game a chance it gets worse," he added. "It sucks period!!! Do not buy or play this game!!!"

Earlier in November, Burnley also became the center of gaming news headlines after revealing that he was approached by Electronic Arts to promote "Star Wars Battlefield." But, instead of posting praises for the game, the singer shared his honest opinions about the latest "Star Wars" title, VG247 reported.

"(EA)wanted to pay me to post that I like this piece of s*** game," he posted. "They can shove it up their a** this game sucks I'd rather watch the god awful prequels than play this piece of s*** one more second that's ruining 'Star Wars.'"

According to Burnley, as a fan of the "Star Wars" media franchise, he didn't appreciate what the developers did with "Battlefront." For one, he noted that the game's respawn system doesn't work that well and actually sets up players to die again in the matches.

Also, Brunley stated that he's not a big fan of online games. Although "Star Wars Battlefront" does have a single-player mode, it's not as fun to play as the game's multiplayer setting. And because of this, Burnley noted that a player's overall gameplay experience relies on his or her Internet connection, Attack of the Fanboy has learned.

In other words, similar to the problem he pointed out with "Halo 5," a poor Internet connection can really ruin someone's online gaming experience.
