A whole new crop of Fortnite Week 5 challenges have just sprouted! Seven new bonus objectives show up every Thursday morning for the Battle Pass crowd, and this week is no exception as challenges arrive ranging from opening loot chests in specific locations to hunting down treasure based off a secret map.

Some of the "hard" designations are a little strange this week, though. For instance, it will probably take you longer to find a legendary bush drop (which isn't a "hard" challenge) than it will to get three kills in Tilted Towers, which is always swarming with players looking for loot.

These are all the Fortnite Season 3 Week 5 challenges now available in Battle Royale matches:

  • Use the Bush one time (5 Battle Points)
  • Search 7 Loot Chests in Moisty Mire (5 Battle Points)
  • Deal 200 damage with a Pickaxe to opponents (5 Battle Points)
  • Visit 3 different Gas Stations in a single match (5 Battle Points - see our guide here)
  • Hard: Follow the treasure map found in Anarchy Acres to the Battle Star (10 Battle Points - see guide below)
  • Hard: Get 3 Pistol Eliminations (10 Battle Points)
  • Hard: Eliminate 3 opponents in Tilted Towers (10 Battle Points)

Below, we cover exactly where to find the Anarchy Acres treasure map and how to decipher its scribblings to find the hidden Battle Star treasure!

Fortnite Week 5 Anarchy Acres Treasure Map

The Week 5 challenge treasure map itself isn't that tough to find. Just land at Anarchy Acres (a personal favorite spot of mine to drop, by the way, since it has plenty of loot, good hiding spots, and isn't usually filled with other players), and look for a shack at the edge of the area. The map is sitting on a sign post between the two walls.

The map itself is sort of obscure, and the red X near a hill doesn't really seem to indicate a clear location ... except for the llama in the upper-left map corner. Remember a few weeks back how there was a challenge to land at giant buildings shaped like a fox, a crab, and a llama? That's the big hint here.

The llama building was at the far northwest corner of the Battle Royale play area north of Junk Junction, which is the direction you want to head. The Battle Star treasure isn't actually at the llama, though; as the map indicates, it is found to the south.

Head south from there (and west of Junk Junction) to find the Battle Star near a hill where a big rocking is sitting on the ground. Remember that, as with all the maps, the Star actually won't spawn until you get close to it, so run around a bit if it isn't immediately visible.

Because the Star is so close to the edge of the map, you may want to skip finding the treasure map entirely and instead just go straight to Junk Junction. If you grab the map first, the storm will almost certainly have closed in before you can run all the way over to the northwest corner of the Battle Royale map (although this also means there won't be any snipers waiting for you).

Fortnite Weekly Challenge - Gas Station Locations Thu, 22 Mar 2018 13:17:25 -0400 Ty Arthur

Somehow we are in Week 5 of Fortnite Season 3 already, with a batch of brand-new crazy challenges to complete while surviving 100-player Battle Royale matches!

This week's roundup of objectives includes a quest to visit three different gas station locations around the map, which is harder than it sounds if you don't land in a good starting spot close enough to two other stations.

Unlike many other weekly challenges, this one is constrained by the fact that all three must be visited in a single match. This objective isn't like the no-dance signs or llama, crab, fox structures, where you can hit them in multiple matches, so it's best to plan out your route ahead of time if you want to complete the challenge quickly.

Where to Find the Fortnite Gas Stations

Although challenging, it is possible to grab all three stations for this challenge in a single match (so long as you avoid the other 99 players trying to gun you down).

If you manage to drop off the Battle Bus at Pleasant Park, you can probably grab the three below there quickly before the storm even closes in on your position. This is probably the best route so that you don't have to worry about taking constant damage while reaching the last gas station.

If the bus doesn't come from that location, then this gets a lot harder, however. In that case, landing at Moisty Mire or the gas station at the far south end of the map is probably the way to go, although you still might end up grabbing the third gas station from behind the storm. As with other challenges, you still have to complete the match (by either dying or winning) to actually complete the objective.

All the currently known Fortnite Week 5 gas station locations are listed below and are marked on the map with a gas icon. Several walkthrough videos and guide websites online have mentioned a gas station in Retail Row, but this doesn't seem to be accurate, as I haven't been able to find one there after multiple matches. Here are all the gas stations I've found so far:

  • One is found in the middle of Pleasant Park
  • A station is sitting conveniently on the road west of Loot Lake and south of Pleasant Park
  • A gas station is found in the soccer field west of Tilted Towers
  • Greasy Grove has a gas station waiting to be visited
  • Tomato Town at the northeast section of the map has a station, but this one is probably the farthest from any two other stations on the whole map
  • A gas station is found at Salty Springs towards the middle of the Battle Royale map
  • The road at the north end of Moisty Mire has a station
  • A final station is found at the far south end of the map, to the east of Flush Factory and by the bridge

If you have trouble finding them once you drop, just keep in mind they are typically either in a major marked location on the map (like Pleasant Park, Tomato Town, etc.) or on a road between those locations.

The 20 Most Hilarious Arby's Video Game References Wed, 21 Mar 2018 12:25:43 -0400 Ty Arthur


It's a good bet we'll continue to see new anime and gaming references pop up in the months ahead, as this is an ad strategy that seems to be working, and there are plenty of games and shows they haven't covered yet.


I'm actually surprised we haven't seen a Secret Of Mana post yet, considering how they have been on top of the re-releases of classic games in recent months.


What was your favorite Arby's gaming reference, and what box art creation do you hope to see come up next? Let us know in the comments!




Game: Doom


Is there ANYTHING this crew can't do with those damn boxes?!? It doesn't even look like they had to paint on the red lower sections but just used the colored portions of the sandwich holders to make it fit perfectly. The only way they could have made this better is if it was an ultra-fast moving video with a chainsaw at the end.


Goomba Squad! Moooove out!!!


Series: Super Mario Bros.


Those classic Goombas 'n Boos will always hold a hallowed place in gaming history, even as the series expands out and drastically alters the gameplay with newer iterations like Super Mario Odyssey. That adorable cardboard Goomba has got me thinking a weekend family art project may be in the works!


He's the symbol this town needs


Game: South Park: The Fractured But Whole


I don't think anyone expected the South Park series to hit its stride with an RPG, but what started with Obsidian's Stick Of Truth and continued with Ubisoft's take in The Fractured But Whole may well be the best games in the franchise. The paper cut-out style of the TV series also clearly lends itself well to cardboard box art!


You've come a long way, baby


Series: Fallout


I'm calling it -- fast food sauce packet art is going to become a recognized thing. I mean, if Vincent Castiglia can paint with blood, why not Arby's sauce?


This saucy rendition of the Fallout stat system also just reminded me that I'm 95 hours into Fallout 4 but still haven't actually finished the main storyline after getting side tracked by all the DLC. Nobody ruin the ending for me.


The morning sun has vanquished the horrible night


Series: Castlevania


Considering you can eat burgers, mushrooms, and even whole turkey legs throughout this series, the idea of Simon's Lunch isn't too far fetched. The best part about this whole thing (other than the box whip), is that one genius fan immediately commented with this exchange:


"Fry monster! You don't belong in this world!"

"It was not by my hand I was again made fresh. I was ordered by humans who wish to fillet me tribute!"


How's your grip strength?


Game: Shadow of the Colossus


The wisdom of eating a tower of meat that size is definitely in question, but this is an absolutely perfect mixing of game and fast food imagery to get an idea across. It's clear just from a glance that he's about to fight a colossus, and now I'm kind of wondering if I have what it takes to tackle the meat mountain.


You might call this a post for 90's gamers, but we think of it as millennial fare


Game: Chrono Trigger


Featuring dancing robot Gato from the millennial fair, this Chrono Trigger-based caption was pure genius, and it immediately took me back to Saturday afternoon game sessions from my childhood.


The sad, cash-grab PC port might be garbage, but the original SNES version is still one of the best RPGs of all time, and I'm absolutely about to load up ZSNES and replay it tonight.


Sure, you've seen it before, but now it has Aqua.


Game: Kingdom Hearts 2.8


How can there be so many games in this series, yet none of them have managed to be Kingdom Hearts III yet? This post was kind of torture for the fans who have been patiently waiting for the next real sequel, although it did hilariously spur on a slew of photo responses in which diners set their keys next to a sandwich.


Lunch is Strange


Game: Life Is Strange


How do you say so much with so little? Even without the caption, it would have been clear what was happening here. Although sadly, the reference did leave the post wide open to all sorts of comments about wanting to rewind time back before eating that meal.


Overcome the impossible


Game: Gravity Rush


This Vita title wasn't exactly well known to the masses at large, so it was sort of surprising to see a sideways image of Kat pop up in the Arby's feed, but clearly the fans were happy to see this lesser-known action-adventure title get a little fast food love. If you remember this game and want to see more, be sure to leave a comment!


9929 years in the future …


Game: Nier Automata


This inexplicably awesome (and constantly genre-hopping) game managed to shake up the GOTY expectations early in 2017 with its combination of androids, giant swords, and killer robot enemies.


The swords and drones are spot-on here, although I'm kind of wondering if 2B as a "shake" is supposed to be a reference to her exposed behind throughout the game....


Which is it, wark or kweh?


Series: Final Fantasy


Obviously it's kweh, you uncultured swine! OK, I guess it can be both. Seriously though, that sandwich box chocobo is a thing of beauty. I shudder to think of the amount of work that had to go into crafting this guy, and I'm a little disturbed by the connotation of the chicken sandwiches next to him.... Maybe one day we'll get a saddled Chocobo creation in a Final Fantasy Tactics style?


Understand, understand, the concept of love.


Game: Jet Set Radio Future


Whoa, they are going old school and fairly obscure with this one, as the original game came out in 2000, and Jet Set Radio Future came out in '02. I'm hoping the resurrection of interest in this series from the social media posts might spur on some news soon, as Sega has been showing some proclivity towards resurrecting older IPs.


Beefy AND portable. We dig it.


Console: Switch


Speaking of the Switch, you had to know this one was coming, right? I never would have thought "Nintendo console = roast beef sandwiches," but somehow they made the connection with the beefy/portable comment. Those adorable little Switch Joy-Con buttons are also kind of amazing.


The last Metroid is in captivity. The galaxy is at peace.


Game: Metroid


Another totally classic and retro reference, this one takes us way, waaaaay back to the NES days of the earliest Samus adventures. Not only does this post successfully make me want some curly fries, but now it's got me wondering: When is that Metroid Prime 4 finally going to show up for the Switch?


So glad he crashed the party. 


Game: Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy


For a generation that grew up with Spyro and Crash Bandicoot, news of the remastered N.Sane Trilogy was like a breath of fresh air, and it didn't take long for word to spread on social media. The TNT boxes are fine and all, but it's really the cardboard sleeve gloves that push this one over the top and show off the level of detail.


It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.


Game: The Legend Of Zelda


While Breath of the Wild might be the only thing Zelda fans care about right now, it's the classics that will always be remembered. They didn't even have to make a cardboard sword for the reference to work. Three triangles tells us Triforce, and in this case, a pretty darn tasty one made out of fried potatoes!


As one adventure begins, another waits in the shadows. She's one tough cookie!


Game: Tomb Raider


The cookie causing the eclipse just brings this one together (but who goes to a fast food place for the cookies?). With the pickaxe in hand, this is clearly meant to evoke the newer reboot series that the new movie is based off, rather than original tank top and shorts Lara Croft.


Rally the crew; we're going after the big ones


Game: Monster Hunter World


You ever look at that really artistic spray paint wall graffiti and wonder, "How in the hell did they do that and get such amazing can control?" Yeah, now I'm trying to figure out how someone has such amazing Arby's BBQ sauce packet control to create the Monster Hunter guild symbol! Just one slight twitch of the wrist and this could have been a disaster.


Sneaking into that Mobile Beta


Game: Fortnite


The reigning Battle Royale king Fortnite landing on iOS devices is the current talk of the town (with Android users more than a little jealous), so of course Arby's jumped on that immediately.


This one has it all -- the bush that players love to be while sneaking around the map, and a reference to the difficulty in actually making it into the mobile beta at this point!


You'd usually think of Taco Bell or Mountain Dew as the gaming champs, but a certain roast beef-obsessed fast food chain is creeping up and taking over with a marketing department that clearly loves anime and gaming culture.


Social media marketing is a vital part of any company's advertising strategy, and Arby's made a conscious choice to change tactics away from "buy this meal for this price" posts to much more engaging and organic images that people actually want to share.


Every new post features a hilarious composition of reliable comment types -- a few clueless people trying to puzzle out what that reference means, super fans who are in heaven, a call for the team to get a raise, and backlash from the bored Facebook and Twitter crowds who are upset people are talking about video games for some reason. Every now and again, cheers of joy will erupt in the comments when pop culture references show up that a wider range of people actually understand, such as ClueAliens, or Discworld.


Despite going really obscure with some of the video game references, the Arby's team has created an advertising juggernaut here because they perfectly meet at the intersection of gaming, nerd culture, and crafting fanatics. Some of these posts ahead are truly works of art that clearly took an absurd amount of time to construct out of Arby's boxes, bags, and even sauce packets!


Note: All photo rights belong to Arby's -- we're just appreciating these perfect references. 

GTA Online Super Sport Series Cars Guide Wed, 21 Mar 2018 11:46:50 -0400 Sergey_3847

Rockstar Games has just released their first of many series of new racing mode updates for GTA Online, beginning with the Southern San Andreas Super Sport Series. It includes five new cars, two of which are supercars.

You can buy all five new cars in your GTA Online shop and test them out immediately. If you want to know which car is the best in this latest update, then follow our guide for all five new cars below.

Överflöd Entity XXR

Överflöd Entity XXR in GTA Online

  • Price: $2,305,000

The XXR is a true sports car based on Koenigsegg One, the star of the Geneva Motor Show. It can be fully customized in the mod shop, where you can change all of its body kits, spoilers, wings, etc.

The biggest upside of XXR is its light weight, which helps its acceleration and overall speed. You can easily push this car to the limit and watch it fly over every other racing vehicle.

The only downside is the price. You could buy Vagner with similar performance for only $1,535,000. But if you have the extra money, and you want something fresh to try, then definitely pick up the Entity XXR.

Cheval Taipan

a yellow Cheval Taipan

  • Price: $1,980,000

For all its glorious customizability, the Taipan is a very average sports car. It's not as fast as you would like it to be, and it's definitely not very good in terms of handling.

The problem here is that the Taipan is heavy, and you can't accelerate too much or you are in danger of turning over or simply hitting something in your way. For all its clunkiness and extremely high price, the Taipan is simply not recommended.

Declasse Hotring Sabre

Declasse Hotring Sabre kicking up some dust

  • Price: $830,000

This Hotring Sabre, just like the name suggests, is a Hotring racing car based on the NASCAR legend of the 90s -- the Chevrolet Lumina.

It has decent speed but average acceleration, and it has tons of customizable features. Of course, it's not as fast as the famous Pariah, but if you have the money, then be sure to buy the Hotring Sabre.

Vapid GB200

a tricked-out Vapid GB200

  • Price: $940,000

Here is a little speedster that is extremely sensitive on the road. It has awesome acceleration, but you really need to pay attention to what you're doing on the road or it'll get you into trouble.

If you want to take it on the track, then be sure to avoid those with lots of turns -- it just won't hold up. Also, considering it doesn't boast the highest speed, the GB200 turns into a peculiar choice. Try it out for yourself and see if you want this in your garage, as it is most likely designed for an acquired taste.

Vulcar Fagaloa

a Vulcar Fagaloa with a surfboard on the roof

  • Price: $335,000

This two-door station wagon is based on the Volvo Amazon from the 60s. It's a typical beach car and is not intended for racing.

It's a very slow and clunky car, but you buy a car like this for the fun it offers and its cool, customizable features. For example, you can turn it into rusty garbage and drive the streets of San Andreas, making everybody point their fingers.


The Super Sport Series kicks off new car releases every week from now on, so be sure to check every single car before making the decision to purchase anything.

Out of the first five cars, the best one is definitely the Entity XXR. Although it's a bit costly, it is a solid investment. Skip the Taipan and take into consideration either the Sabre or GB200 -- although the Sabre is the definite winner among these two.

So really, only two cars are worthy of your money here: the XXR and the Sabre. The rest simply can't compete. But we'll see what the next week will bring to the table.


Now you can safely purchase any of the new cars presented in the Super Sport Series update, and for other GTA Online guides at GameSkinny, just follow these links:

FFXIV Eureka Anemos Weapon Guide Wed, 21 Mar 2018 11:31:12 -0400 Sergey_3847

The whole point of Eureka Anemos dungeon content, the latest addition to Final Fantasy XIV patch 4.25, is the new set of Anemos gear, which includes the new relic weapon.

In order to get this new powerful weapon, you need to unlock a few other things beforehand and also earn some Protean and Anemos crystals by killing elemental monsters. Follow our step-by-step guide below for more details.

How to Unlock the Eureka Anemos Weapon

Purchase screen for the anemos crystal in FFXIV

Step 1: Obtain Antiquated Weapon

You can obtain an Antiquated weapon or any other Antiquated item in two ways: either by getting it from your coffer of the level 70 final job quest, or by purchasing it from Calamity Salvager.

Calamity Salvager can be found in the following areas:

  • The Aftcastle, Limsa
  • Mih Khetto's Amphitheatre, Gridania
  • Weaver's Guild, Ul'dah
Step 2: Upgrade Your Weapon

After you've purchased an Antiquated weapon from Calamity Salvager, you can take it to Gerolt, a blacksmith, who resides in Port Surgate on Eureka. He will be able to upgrade your weapon to a regular version, and then to +1 and +2 versions, which are necessary for your Anemos weapon.

You also need to have enough Protean crystals to be able to pay for the upgrades. Protean crystals can be obtained by killing elemental monsters on Eureka.

  • regular weapon upgrade will cost you 100 Protean crystals
  • +1 upgrade will cost you 400 Portean crystals
  • +2 upgrade will cost you 800 Protean crystals
Step 3: Unlock Anemos Weapon

In order to upgrade any of the +2 items, you will also need 150 Anemos crystals, which can be exchanged for your Protean crystals.

However, in order to unlock the Anemos weapon, you will also need 3 Pazuzu feathers, which can only be obtained by killing the Pazuzu Bird, which spawns in the Newvoid, west of Eureka, after you defeat Shadow Wraith.

Take the feathers back to Gerolt and upgrade your +2 weapon to Anemos weapon.


That's how you can unlock the Anemos weapon or any other upgradable item on Eureka, and for other Final Fantasy XIV guides at GameSkinny, please follow the links below:

Ni No Kuni 2 Beginner's Guide: Tips and Tricks for Getting Started Tue, 20 Mar 2018 14:06:01 -0400 Littoface

Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is a vast game with tons of content and things to explore. As gameplay elements are unlocked slowly as you progress through the game, you might find yourself wondering what actions you can take now to improve your gameplay later on in the game.

You've come to the right place! This beginner's guide covers the first ten or so hours, and covers combat, exploration, and some more general tips up to (but not including) kingdom management.

(Stay tuned to GameSkinny for a comprehensive guide on kingdom management soon!)

Ni No Kuni 2 Combat Tips

Character wielding a fire-based weapon during combat in Ni no Kuni II Revenant Kingdom

Battles are one of the most important aspects of Ni No Kuni 2, and the system is pretty robust. The game will lead you through the basics of fighting, but here are some more tips for efficient combat:

Switch characters mid-fight by pressing up or down on the D-Pad.

You can alternate between characters or just stick to one -- there's no clear advantage to either, so play according to your own preferences.

Use the auto-equip option, but sparingly.

You can auto-equip the strongest equipment available by pressing square in the weapons or equipment tab of each character's equipment information screen. While this is a useful trick for basic battles, it's worth taking the time to hand-pick the right equipment for each character.

Picking weapons yourself can give you a strategic advantage by choosing the right elements, the right accessories for the fighting style, and so on. Something else to keep in mind: Since Roland and Evan both use swords, the auto-equip gives whichever one of them you have selected the strongest set of weapons, leaving the other at a disadvantage.

Remember to customize the Tactics Tweaker to suit your location.

The fantastic thing about the Tactics Tweaker (once Lofty unlocks this for you) is that it's fully customizable and adjustable. Start with the full-party buffs (since these have no disadvantages), and use the sliders to buff your party.

Once you unlock other options within the Tweaker, make sure to switch the settings up depending on where you are and what you're fighting (like increasing damage against slimy monsters in the earlier areas, where you encounter many creatures of a gooey consistency).

Check your characters' skills after they level up.

There's no clear indication when a character learns a new skill, so until you reach the kingdom management aspect of the game, remember to check periodically for new skills.

Use combos, charges, and aerial attacks.

The game doesn't explicitly explain combos or aerials (though it does mention them), so be sure to experiment for some powerful attacks. Tani, for instance, bursts into a flurry of rotating hits with her spears when you attack in rapid succession. Alternating between light and heavy hits also leads to different types of attacks. Holding down the ranged attack button will charge it using MP (and automatically lock onto an enemy you're facing). Try different things!

Don't forget those Higgledies!

The Higgledies can make or break a fight, especially with bosses. Use them! Once you start a kingdom, you'll be able to upgrade and create new Higgledies, but for now, make use of the ones you have. Higgledies typically have a few supporting attacks and one major skill which must be activated by getting inside the blue circle surrounding them and pressing X. The circle disappears after a bit, so don't miss your chance! The little elemental critters let you know when they're ready to attack by letting out a cute cry. Listen out for it.

Exploration Tips

Two characters traversing the open overworld in Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom

You'll be doing a lot of exploring on your quest to create a unified kingdom. Here are a few things to keep in mind on your travels:

Use Trap Door waypoints to quickly go between places.

Exploring the overworld is fun, but if you just want to cut to the chase, press "Options" twice to see all the points to which you can teleport. You can warp from anywhere in the world, including inside dungeons, making this an easy way to complete quests and revisit locations. Whenever you encounter a glowing blue spot, make sure to press X inside it so you can easily return to the location at a later time.

Revisit dungeons when you get new skills.

Some dungeons have areas you can only access once you've unlocked specific skills. Make note of any suspicious areas on your first run-through, and return to explore further once you unlock the skill you were missing.

Don't worry about collecting all the items.

Scattered throughout the world and within towns and dungeons are sparkles that indicate items. While it's a good idea to pick up items in new areas (and especially in the Dreamer's Maze dungeons), don't worry about collecting them all: They replenish over time, and you'll be able to collect items from your kingdom later on anyway.

General Ni No Kuni 2 Tips

Four characters, two in conversation, from Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom

And finally, here are a few more things to keep in mind when you're first starting out in Ni No Kuni 2:

Don't bother buying any weapons or armor until you get a kingdom.

Once you have access to kingdom management, you'll also unlock the ability to craft and upgrade your own equipment. Until then, save your guilders -- crafting and upgrading can be expensive, so you'll be glad that you did.

Check the Leafbook for updates and gossip.

The game's fantasy-world version of Facebook is a good place to see a quick summary of the story thus far (paired with amusing comments), but it's also great for finding hidden items and monster information. Use the Leafbook to check for tips and gossip, and save potentially interesting posts by "liking" them (you'll be able to easily filter by liked posts when you need to).


With these tips, you're ready to take on the world of Ni No Kuni 2! And be on the lookout for more Ni No Kuni 2 info right here on GameSkinny.

FFXIV Eureka Complete Gear Guide Tue, 20 Mar 2018 11:18:00 -0400 Sergey_3847

The latest patch 4.25 for Final Fantasy XIV has introduced a new dungeon, "Eureka Anemos." Eureka is basically a large island located in the deep ocean off the Far East that is designed to accommodate up to 144 players at once.

Players now have the chance to gather up and fight through hordes of elemental monsters and get some amazing new gear. If you want to know what type of gear is available on Eureka and how to unlock it, then follow our quick guide below.

Now that the frenzied Battle Royale segment of Fortnite has made it to mobile (well, for iOS users anyway), a celebration is underway with a whole new limited-time mode that feels tailor-made for quick sessions on the phone.

The freshly released Fortnite Blitz mode ups the stakes and decreases the time of these already quick matches, forcing a hard cap of 15 minutes and changing up some of the mechanics to force faster confrontations.

If you love the feel of a Battle Royale match but want to pick up better loot faster and rack up the kills at lightning speed, this is the Season 3 mode you want to try out this week!

Update screen indicating that blitz mode is now available in Fortnite Season 3 gets even faster with Blitz Mode!

Blitz Squads in Fortnite's Limited Time Mode

You've got to switch to squads in the Battle Royale mode selector to take advantage of the Blitz limited time event, which isn't available in solo or duo modes.

The biggest difference with Blitz is that the storm immediately starts shrinking and doesn't stop throughout the course of the game, rather than closing in at regular intervals like in a standard match. There's much less time to explore areas on the edge of the map, and trying to pick up any of the weekly challenges will be a lot more difficult in Blitz.

Because you will be herded in closer together at a much faster rate, there is a much higher loot spawn rate, with chests appearing much more frequently in all the usual locations. Rare and higher equipment also spawn more often in those chests, so you will get better gear right away. Likewise, supply drops land much more quickly so you are always well outfitted.

Furthermore, all players harvest at twice the normal speed during a Fortnite Blitz squads match, so it won't take nearly as long to gather the resources to build structures. At the same time, building and camping isn't nearly as viable an option, since the storm shrinks at such a rate that you won't be able to stick around for long. Finally, launch pads spawn more often, so be on the lookout for players in the air!

Essentially, everything is in fast forward here with a Blitz match. All the standard ideas for victory apply, except that the focus will be less on stealth and more on getting an awesome weapon quickly and then taking down everyone fleeing the storm.

The typical psychological games like closing building doors behind you become less important in Blitz mode ... unless you are using the remote explosive C4 that was just added to the game. Since there's so much good loot to be found in Blitz mode, dropping some remote explosives next to a chest -- and then leaving the chest untouched -- is a sneaky and devious new way to get a kill.

Just hang out nearby (from above, if possible, for a good sniping vantage point) and wait for someone to walk in, then hit detonate. They might survive the remote explosive blast, but they will at least be weakened and easy to take out with a few shots as they run out of the building.

Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom Launch Trailer Released Mon, 19 Mar 2018 14:26:07 -0400 Zach Hunt

Leading up to this Friday's Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom release, Bandai Namco has unveiled the soon-to-be-released JRPG's launch trailer. Fans of the first game will feel right at home with the gorgeous color palette, sweeping score, and ominous foreshadowing showcased throughout the two-minute trailer.

While the famed Studio Ghibli is not directly involved with Ni No Kuni II (as it was with the first game, Wrath of the White Witch), the Ghibli inspiration is absolutely evident throughout the trailer, portions of which look as if they could've been pulled directly from Hayao Miyazaki's sketchbook. 

So what are your thoughts? Does this trailer have you even more excited to venture back into Ding Dong Dell? Our own reviewer found Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom to be "an immensely satisfying and fun game," and if this trailer is any indication, she won't be alone in proclaiming so.

Ni No Kuni 2: The Kingmaker Knowledge Trial Guide (Including All Orbs) Mon, 19 Mar 2018 10:15:01 -0400 Littoface

Young Evan Pettiwhisker Tildrum has some pretty lofty aspirations in Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom. He wants to rule the entire world! (But in a kind way, not an evil way.) Before he can do that, however, there's just the small matter of forging a Kingmaker: a task that must be completed before he can rule over so much as a rock.

And to get a Kingmaker, Evan has to prove his worth in the Trials of Knowledge and Power. The Trial of Power is, as you might imagine, a battle. The Trial of Knowledge, on the other hand, is a puzzle.

The puzzle is simple but difficult to master. You're placed on a game board made up of squares. To complete each section, you have to activate statues around the board in the correct order, sometimes rotating them according to story clues. Glowing orbs are scattered around the board; these are optional, but collecting them all gets you extra loot on completion. The catch? As you pass each block, it falls away behind you.

The trick is to plan out a path that will take you around to all the orbs and all the statues in the correct order.

Having some trouble? We've got you covered! Below are the paths you'll need to follow in the Kingmaker's Knowledge Trial in order to complete each section and collect all the orbs along the way.

Kings and Combat! Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom Review Mon, 19 Mar 2018 10:08:37 -0400 Littoface

Politics. War. Petty squabbles over land, weapons, and resources. This is the reality of our world, and every era feels like the worst to those who live through it. But what if we all stopped arguing for a moment and tried to get along? Is it possible to live in peace and harmony, the whole world under rule of one kind and wise overseer? Evan Pettiwhisker Tildrum sure hopes so, because that's precisely what he's hoping to accomplish.

When Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom begins, Evan has just been overthrown by a coup from his post as young king of Ding Dong Dell. Forced to flee, he escapes from his home and embarks on a quest for growth, both as a person and as a king. Accompanied by a stranger from a different world, a sky pirate and his daughter, and a motley crew of other friends and companions, the young and innocent Evan sets out to unite the people of the world into one nation.

And he, of course, will be the king to rule over it all.

The Making of a King

First, he needs a Kingmaker — a (usually) glorious creature that gives mortals the right to rule over a kingdom. Then, it follows, he needs a kingdom. But that's just a small setback for Evan and his closest companion, Roland. They briskly acquire the (decidedly unimpressive) kingmaker Lofty and find a spot to build. And just like that, a kingdom is born.

Ni No Kuni 2 is a tale about countries, people, and the strength and mental fortitude necessary to rule over them all with a fair mind and a steady hand. With Roland's political know-how and Evan's energetic optimism, the two make many friends (and a few enemies) on their path to form a kingdom the likes of which no one has ever seen.

While the first Ni No Kuni game focused on a very internal struggle, this time around the stakes are much higher. This entry in the series examines what it takes to be a good leader. It highlights in an exaggerated but effective way what happens when rulers and governments forget that their job is, primarily, to protect the well-being of their citizens. The right to hold such a tremendous power over a nation, as of a king or a president, is not a task that should be taken lightly. In the game's fantasy world, a king losing sight of his role can have catastrophic results.

Even more troubling is the mysterious being who follows the darkness in people's hearts and steals their kingly power. If Evan is to create a unified world, he certainly has his work cut out for him.

This World Feels Familiar...

Returning fans of the series will be glad to hear that, despite the much grander and more mature themes, Ni No Kuni 2 retains the playfulness and charm of its predecessor. Puns abound as the story unfolds with exuberant highs and dramatic lows. Characters and monsters are often adorable or awesome and always memorable, and the ridiculously silly elemental creatures called higgledies are impossibly fun to watch as they run behind you gleefully (occasionally face-planting into the ground).

As the story unfolds, it highlights each character's strengths and weaknesses. Though many moments are grave and serious, there's always plenty of silliness to go around (like Lofty and the power of his… boogers?). And underneath it all is a distinctly fairytale tone which recalls the Studio Ghibli origins of the series: Evan wishes to end senseless fighting and rule over a kingdom where everyone can "live happily ever after."

It's precisely this naivete that makes him such an engaging main character. You can't help but cheer for this honest, kind young man who is really still a child. Roland, on the other hand, is an experienced ruler in his own right. His past is only hinted at for a while, but it's clear he's had plenty of chances to hone his political expertise… and maybe make a few mistakes in the process. His involvement with Evan feels almost like a way to redeem himself and nurture the kindness and courage of this openly naive young leader.

If you haven't played the first game, you might draw some parallels to a different world: our own. Rather than returning to the idyllic 1950s aesthetic of the first game, this installment is thrust into a more modern and complex setting. There are clear allegories to the way our modern world works, from the jarring first cutscene, to "Leafbook"—the world's equivalent of Facebook (complete with status updates, comments, and likes).

If you have played the first game, you might search for the deeper meaning to Ni No Kuni 2. We'll spell it out for you here: People in power are not always just, and those who try to be are often hindered by our easily-corruptible human nature. Evan represents that childish glimmer of hope that maybe — just maybe — everyone can put their differences aside and just get along.

Dynamic, Multi-faceted Combat

The world is rife with monsters, but luckily the game's ragtag team is adept at fighting them. The combat system is a complex juggling act which starts out intimidating but quickly becomes second nature. You control only one of the characters at a time, directing their melee and ranged attacks and unleashing powerful skills. Which character you choose is irrelevant as the AI does an excellent job on its own — it all comes down to your own personal preferences and playing styles.

Each character in your party of three can equip three melee weapons, one ranged weapon, four spells, and a full suit of armor of your choosing. Each melee weapon increases in power until a skill is used and resets the gauge, and players can switch between weapons automatically or manually (or both). Skills take MP, which, unlike in many other games, refill over time during combat.

Players have free reign of the battlefield and can attack, guard, and dodge however they wish. The aforementioned higgledies are more than just comedic effect: They act as powerful allies in battle, whose skills can make or break a fight. Their skills buff and attack, and choosing the right team of higgles is an important part of combat preparation.

This makes for some hectic but fun battles, and the pace is further enhanced by the seamless transition between exploration and battle anywhere outside the overworld map. Further combat options are available through the Tactic Tweaker, which allows players to use sliders to strengthen or alter certain effects (at the expense of others). These sliders are not permanent and can be adjusted on the fly to suit whatever area you happen to be exploring at the moment — a fact which makes combat even more involved and complex.

Occasionally, Lofty throws out a shining orb of light, which "Awaken" the powers of whichever character catches it, powering them up temporarily.

If this absurdly vast level of customization is not enough for you, there are also skirmishes to be fought, in which Evan leads troops against other organized forces in large-scale battles across a stretch of land. These skirmishes have their own rules, controls, and skills to master. While normal battles can be hectic and fun, the skirmishes provide a challenging aside to regular exploration.

Build a Kingdom

Finally, we come to the aspect of Ni No Kuni 2 that many people were probably looking forward to: the kingdom-building. When you finally get around to this aspect of the game, at first glance, it feels like a very well-designed… mobile game?

The mechanics, at least, are surprisingly familiar. You begin by building four main ministries, then you can add onto your kingdom by building and expanding other places, like stores, resource-gathering operations, a restaurant, and other useful things to have in a thriving kingdom. You can expand your castle to grow your kingdom, or direct all your efforts (and money) toward researching cool new things for your party or increasing your kingdom's level of influence in the grand scheme of things.

Managing and maintaining your kingdom costs Kingdom Guilders (KG), a separate currency from your personal bank, which fills up over time as your hard-working citizens give your their money. You can also gather items this way, either to sell or to use for yourself. You have no control over where buildings are placed, but you decide everything else, including who works at which building.

The details are a lot more intricate, of course, and luckily, new structures are built instantly (research, however, takes real time). You can then use your KG to help you in other areas of the game, like using some of the currency to reset your battle point distribution in your Tactics Tweaker.

All this feels very familiar (just replace the "KG" moniker with "Gems"). Does it work? Well, absolutely. Without the need for microtransactions interfering with the game's design, this kingdom-building aspect is actually, well, pretty fun. Like the combat system, it's also incredibly complex and requires some multitasking. It turns out, it's pretty easy to run a kingdom; running a kingdom expertly, however, takes some more experimentation and attention.

This is fantastic news for those to just want to set up the details and let things run themselves, as well as for those who enjoy a more tactical, hands-on approach to things.

The best part of unlocking the kingdom-building aspect of Ni No Kuni 2, though, is the huge amount of new options you unlock with it. Creating your kingdom gives you access to crafting weapons and armor (finally, a use for all those items we've been carrying around and picking up everywhere!), cooking, managing and unlocking new spells, upgrading and cooking up new higgledies (literally), and so much more. The more time you dedicate to your kingdom, the more options become available, and the more useful they become.

Our biggest qualm about this aspect is the same issue that keeps us from giving this game a solid 9: It takes forever to get to this point. The game drips new information and gameplay aspects to players over time, understandably not wanting to dump this huge amount of info on a newbie at the risk of overwhelming gamers. But the result is a slow pace that leaves you feeling like you're still playing a tutorial ten hours into the game.

Music, Exploration, and Everything Else

Of course, Ni No Kuni 2 is about more than just fighting and building kingdoms. When it comes to exploration, level design, music, and every other aspect of gameplay, the game absolutely shines. There are no tedious walks back and forth between locations as right from the very beginning players are able to move freely between any warp point they've encountered, even to various points inside dungeons, from anywhere in the world. This is one huge plus to Ni No Kuni 2, as the unnecessary trudge of travel is gone. Later on, you can even use your kingdom to increase your walking speed in the world map, eliminating some of the biggest cons of many other RPGs.

There are still plenty of reasons to explore the overworld, though, one of which being how adorable the chibi versions that the characters assume in this space. Other than that, there are resources to gather, treasures to discover, and, of course, battles to be fought. Between exploring the main world and progressing through the main and side quests, fighting never becomes too difficult, and there is rarely a reason to grind.

Another reason to explore is for the sheer joy of it. Every location you visit has sweeping, gorgeous views that will have you pressing the screenshot button like a tourist. And every location is accompanied by beautiful orchestral music — for instance, can you imagine Oriental-themed casino music? Because this game nailed that unusual combination for the city of Goldenpaw.

Voice acting is plentiful and as spot-on as in the first game with the English versions really shining since they use actual kids for the child characters — with an especially strong performance from Tani's young voice actress, whose voice is incredibly fitting for the feisty young sky pirate's daughter.

Final Verdict!

The focus on story is still very much present in every instant of Ni No Kuni 2, as characters talk among themselves occasionally while interactions over side-quests keep the charm going no matter what you're doing. Still, as strong as the story is, it competes for attention with exploration, combat, skirmishes, tactical kingdom management, and much more.

This is both the game's strength and weakness. On one hand, the huge amount of things you can do ensure there is never a dull moment. Bored of running around fighting? Pause to craft some new weapons. Don't feel like following the main quest yet? Go pick a fight in a skirmish. The story progression is linear, but the gameplay certainly isn't. In this, the game shines with the sheer amount of content to explore, things to do, items to collect. You can even control the flow of battle thanks to the tactical sliders.

On the other hand, all this can feel like too much content, especially for returning players. The Ni No Kuni fans know and love was a very straightforward RPG with a strong focus on story progression but just enough wiggle room to explore as you wish. Ni No Kuni 2, however, is an absolutely huge game with a massive amount of details, options, and ways to play. It can feel a bit overwhelming, and that ultimately detracts from the overall cohesiveness of the game. At times all the details come together in a very satisfying way; but at other times, it feels like a hodge-podge of ideas thrown together.

Don't get us wrong! Ni No Kuni 2 is an immensely satisfying and fun game, with a ton more complexity than you might expect from such a cute-looking style. It comments freely on the world we live in by mirroring aspects of it within its story. It gives you a taste of power, and an idea of how much inner-strength someone needs to have the fate of hundreds or thousands of people in your hands. And, like a good game should, it makes you feel.

Overall, Ni No Kuni 2 accomplishes what it sets out to do: It's a fun but deep fantasy world with heroes who remind us there is good in the world and villains who remind us that sometimes the worst-seeming people are just… misguided. It could be a more unified playing experience, and the pace is a tad too slow, but in the end It's an excellent game that has every right to bear the name of its predecessor.

Fortnite Supply Llama Locations Guide Sat, 17 Mar 2018 21:23:58 -0400 Sergey_3847

The latest weekly patch 3.3 for Fortnite has brought a new type of supply drops -- the Supply Llamas. These cute things are very similar to treasure chests, but contain a slightly different type of loot, which will appear at three random spots in each match in Battle Royale mode out of 15 possible locations in total.

This means that you will have to check the ones that coincide with the path of your choice, as these 15 locations are scattered all over the map. Even if you find just one such Llama, you will be greatly rewarded.

If you want to know how to locate all Supply Llama locations in Fortnite, then follow our quick guide below.

How to Find All Supply Llamas in Fortnite

Here is the complete list of all 15 Supply Llama locations in Fortnite:

  • C4 -- Southwest from Pleasant Park
  • C7 -- South from Greasy Grove
  • D6 -- Southeast from Titled Towers
  • E4 -- Northwest from Loot Lake
  • F7 -- Southwest from Salty Springs
  • F7 -- Southeast from Salty Springs
  • F8 -- West from Fatal Fields
  • G3 -- Northwest from Tomato Town
  • G7 -- Far eastern corner from Salty Springs
  • H5 -- Southeast from the Prison
  • I6 -- East from Retail Row
  • I8 -- Northwest from Moisty Mire
  • I9 -- Southeast from Moisty Mire

The best idea is to look out for Llamas as soon as you drop down. As you see on the map above, the most concentrated locations are Retail Row, Salty Springs, and Moisty Mire.

There is a bigger chance of finding at least one Supply Llama at one of these locations, so try to land somewhere at those spots.

The loot inside the Llamas is really good, and usually contains a lot of building materials, ammo, traps, and some consumables, as well.


Now you will be able to locate all Supply Llamas in Battle Royale mode, and for other Fortnite guides at GameSkinny, please visit the links below:

Fortnite: Where to Search Between Vehicle Towers Fri, 16 Mar 2018 15:00:10 -0400 Ty Arthur

Didn't manage to get your hands on a Fortnite Mobile friend code yet? Yeah, me neither, but that's alright because plenty of people are still logging into the 100 player death matches on PC, Xbox, and PS4.

As Season 3 grinds on, there are now seven new weekly challenges available for the Battle Pass crowd, including the usual mix of dealing damage in certain ways, getting kills in specific locations, and of course, finding hidden spots that test your knowledge of the map.

These new weekly challenges are now ongoing for Season 3, Week 4 of Fortnite Battle Royale:

  • Deal 500 damage with a sniper rifle to opponents (5 Battle Stars)
  • Search 7 chests in Flush Factory (5 Battle Stars)
  • Search 3 supply drops (5 Battle Stars)
  • Visit 5 different ice cream trucks (5 Battle Stars)
  • Hard challenge: search between a vehicle tower, rock sculpture, and a circle of hedges (10 Battle Stars)
  • Hard challenge: complete 1 trap elimination (10 Battle Stars)
  • Hard challenge: eliminate 3 opponents in Tomato Town (10 Battle Stars)

As usual, you only need to do four of the challenges each week instead of all seven. Below we explain exactly where to go to nab that first hard challenge (it's actually pretty easy) of finding a secret Battle Star treasure nestled between three unnamed landmarks.

collecting a battle star while halfway submerged in Fortnite Grabbing the hidden Battle Star treasure in Fortnite Week 4 (thanks to DooM Clan for the screenshot)

Vehicle Tower, Rock Sculpture, Circle Of Hedges Treasure Location

This week's hidden Battle Star treasure is actually found in a pond, and it won't be visible from a distance (although the landmarks will be). It doesn't wink into existence until you walk very close to its spawn location, so jump around in the water if you don't see it appear at first.

To get to this location, jump off the Battle Bus at the southwest corner of the map if possible so you don't have to spend the whole match running to the other side. This one is at the far southwest corner of the Battle Royale map, so if you don't land fairly close right at the beginning of the match, it's a good bet the storm will have covered the location before you can get there.

That's bad because it means you may have to play multiple matches to finish this challenge without getting killed by the storm, but it's also good because there will probably be fewer well-equipped snipers there waiting to kill you (maybe).

The exact coordinates are at the edge of grid H9, at the southwestern end of Moisty Mire. You will be able to see the edge of the map from the pond where the Battle Star spawns, and the rock sculpture will be to your north on a hill.

There's also more than one watery area here, so you may have to walk around a bit. You are looking for the pond near a shack with a tree on the water's edge. The specific Battle Star location is also marked on the map below. As with the other challenges, remember you have to finish the match or it won't register as completed.

There you have it -- one "hard" challenge done in just a few seconds of searching around Moisty Mire's ponds. Sure hope you didn't get sniped by the guy lying in wait at the rock sculpture trying to get an easy kill!

Fortnite Ice Cream Trucks Locations Guide Fri, 16 Mar 2018 13:12:58 -0400 Ty Arthur

Everybody is so excited to jump on the newly unveiled iOS edition of this Battle Royale champ that now the biggest problem in the game is having to constantly deal with Fortnite Mobile crashing!

If you can get the game working on your phone, that's great, but otherwise just jump back on the PC or console version for awhile as Epic gets the kinks worked out.

Whether you are playing Fortnite Mobile or are sticking with the standard old regular edition, there's still some Season 3 Week 4 Battle Pass challenges to mop up before the weekend ends, like hitting five different ice cream truck locations scattered across the map.

Battle Pass Challenges screen with ice cream trucks challenge highlighted Battle Pass holders have a wide array of challenges this week!

Fortnite Week 4 Ice Cream Trucks

You can nab yourself five shiny, new battle stars by visiting five separate ice cream trucks across all corners of the Battle Royale map.

This challenge is quite similar to the previous quest to visit all the "No Dancing" signs, except you don't have to do any sort of emote when you reach the ice cream truck. Just walking up close to a truck will complete the requirement, and you don't have to hit all five trucks in a single match.

While you can find ice cream trucks across multiple matches to hit the five requirement, keep in mind you do have to actually finish the match completely for the visit to count. In other words, you can't just run up to five trucks and then log out without dying (or surviving to the #1 spot).

Ice Cream Truck Locations

Most of the ice cream trucks are found where you'd expect -- in urban areas where other vehicles are around -- but some are more out in the open or even on top of mountains.

They aren't always visible from the air or while just running around, and they frequently pop into existence when you get close to them, so search around each area if you don't immediately see the truck.

By this point, most of the weekly challenge locations are starting to get familiar, as many of the same spots are recycled between challenges. The map below shows each specific grid coordinate, or you can find the Fortnite ice cream trucks at these spots:

  • Near the middle of Junk Junction
  • The north end of the Tilted Towers area
  • On the coast in-between Snobby Shores and Haunted Hills
  • At the northeast side of Pleasant Park
  • At the border of grid D2 between Junk Junction and Anarchy Acres
  • On top of a hill at grid F8 (between Salty Springs, Fatal Fields, and Shifty Shafts)
  • At the north end of Tomato Town
  • Near the northwest side of Greasy Grove
  • At the very far northeast end of the entire map (north of Waiing Woods)
  • Inside Retail Row
  • Inside the Flush Factory area
  • Underneath the bridge east of Flush Factory
  • At the southwest end of the map (southeast of Moisty Mire)

As with the other challenges that force you to take time out of combat to find specific locations, be on the lookout for sniping players, and be wary of someone setting remote C4 explosives near the ice cream trucks! These are two sneaky ways of racking up kills at places where other players will congregate to complete the weekly challenges.

Ghost Of A Tale -- How to Get into the Sewer Fri, 16 Mar 2018 11:18:05 -0400 Ty Arthur

While we wait to see if that upcoming Redwall video game is going to be any good, for now we've got plenty of cute mouse adventures with Ghost of a Tale to keep us busy! 

This stealth-based action RPG will see your minstrel mouse having to outwit rats and other assorted enemies as you hide in baskets and sneak around areas like an adorable tiny rodent version of Thief.

Accessing one location in particular has been vexing new players now that the game is out of early access, as there doesn't seem to be any way to open the sewer gates.

That elusive sewer key is found in the jailer's office where you'd expect it to be, but it's sort of hidden and difficult to find even when you know exactly where to look.

Finding the Sewer Key 

Sadly, you've probably walked right past the key several times and not even realized it while searching every object.

From the room with the blacksmith hammering by the forge, go down the stairs and then hang a right, followed by another immediate right, to enter a bedroom (the jailer's room). You should see a desk with a book and a small dresser drawer sitting next to a bed and a chamber pot.

The Ghost of a Tale sewer key is actually in the dresser, but a lot of people miss it entirely because there are two drawers -- top and bottom -- and you only notice the bottom one if you align yourself just perfectly to see it pop up as an option to access.

When you just point forward towards the dresser, only the top drawer will appear as an option to open (which you've probably already raided in your search for the key).

You have to sort of wiggle back and forth repeatedly to rotate the camera to the correct angle and access the bottom drawer where the sewer key is located. You will know you are close when the chamber pot pops up as an option to open. From there, just turn slightly left to get the bottom drawer.

With the sewer key in paw, it's time to actually open the sewer gate, but the key isn't the only prerequisite. You also need a source of illumination in your inventory.

From the room where you find the key, turn right and run down the stairs. Hang a left at the wall lever, and then immediately turn right to enter a new room. Go past the bridge and through the big wall opening to travel down more stairs and access the jail area. Sneak past the rat guards through the jail to the room where Kerold is being held in the stocks.

Right by that room is the final staircase leading down to an area where the light goes out. Like with the pitch-black pirate cell earlier in the game, you first need to shine a source of light on the gate -- such as a candle or lantern -- before you can use the key to unlock the sewers.

Once the light turns on, you can finally use the key and leave the jail behind to enter the Ghost of a Tale sewer system!

That's all you need to know to access the sewers and move on to the next part of the game. Stay tuned for more guides coming soon on the rest of the Ghost of a Tale quests, and be sure to leave a comment and let us know if you had trouble finding that lower drawer as well!

How to Use C4 Remote Explosives in Fortnite Thu, 15 Mar 2018 19:31:52 -0400 Ty Arthur

While the big news on the block might be that Fortnite is getting a mobile iOS edition soon (with Android planned down the line), Battle Royale Season 3 is still going strong as the updates continue at breakneck speed.

While you twiddle your thumbs wondering when Fortnite Mobile is coming out, there's no reason not to jump back into some 100-player Battle Royale matches on PC or console -- especially since new weapons have arrived!

The smoke bomb has now been replaced with remote explosive C4 units that can be thrown at a distance and then safely detonated while you hide out of sight. Building a wall or ceiling unit for protection is no longer a guarantee of safety when people have explosives ready and waiting to be blown!

How To Detonate C4 In Fortnite

Remote explosives are a rare drop found in chests like any other Battle Royale Season 3 weapon variety. When you switch to C4 in your inventory, there's a two part detonation process, so plenty of players are throwing out a bunch of remote explosives and waiting for something to happen, but they don't ever actually blow up.

Like with a standard gun, you just hit left click to fire off some C4 (sort of in an arc like a grenade). You have to then actually press the right click button on the mouse to detonate those explosives. If you switched to a different weapon after throwing the C4, right click won't do anything to set off the explosion chain.

Note that they will also explode if they take any damage, so they can go off prematurely if people are firing wildly in the area, so take that into account when planting C4.

You really don't want to find this underneath your base's floor!

Throwing multiple explosives before pressing right click will result in each stick of C4 exploding in the order that it was thrown, with a slight delay in between blasts. 

This can completely change whether you get a kill or not as it gives other players time to change positions and get out of the blast radius. You have to time these properly or they are basically useless. Unless you have planned out the explosion change precisely and have immobile targets, it's better to just use one at a time against other players.

Weirdly, the new Fortnite remote explosives don't actually do that much damage to players (usually 70 damage), so they are more useful as a surprise attack or a means of taking out the base segment of a player-built ladder than actually for killing someone in a close up firefight. Maybe the damage will get tweaked in an update down the line?

They do a pretty solid job of destroying doors and walls though, so if you need to get inside a building quickly (and unexpectedly) instead of heading through the main entrance, these explosives give you an edge on people who think they are safe.

For a squad that focuses on building and defending a base instead of moving out in the open across the map, remote explosives will be a game changer. Camping and sniping until the expanding storm forces you to move may no longer be a viable strategy.

Soul Calibur 6 Roster Will Include The Witcher's Geralt of Rivia Thu, 15 Mar 2018 13:34:37 -0400 Zach Hunt

After much speculation, it's official: The Witcher's Geralt of Rivia will indeed be a playable character in Soul Calibur 6 when it's released later this year. With the announcement, Bandai Namco continues its tradition of introducing characters from other franchises into the fighting game series.

Equipped with his steel and silver swords, as well as an arsenal of Signs, Geralt will join confirmed Soul Calibur fighters Mitsurugi, Nightmare, Kilik, Ivy, Xianghua, Zasalamel, and Sophitia -- not to mention brand-new character Groh -- in the series well-known weapons-based combat. Additionally, The Witcher's Kaer Morhen will be included as a new stage.

The reveal trailer shows the White Wolf in action, and from the looks of it, CD Projekt Red's hero is going to fit in SCVI's other fighter just fine. 

Are you hyped over the opportunity to lay the smack down with Geralt of Rivia? Has this announcement swayed you toward picking up Soul Calibur 6 when it releases later this year? Let us know in the comments below, and be sure to stick with GameSkinny for more information on SCVI as it develops.

How to Kill Omega Weapon (Naglfar) in Final Fantasy 15 Thu, 15 Mar 2018 09:39:46 -0400 Sergey_3847

Naglfar is the hardest, most ruthless boss in Final Fantasy 15. It is often compared to Omega Weapon boss from Final Fantasy 8 both for its looks and fierceness. This boss appears during the endgame after you finish the main campaign.

But before fighting Naglfar, you will fight four other bosses. Each battle will grant you a new legendary weapon, which can be used in the fight with Omega Weapon/Naglfar. If you want to know which weapon and tactics are the best for this final boss fight, then follow our quick guide below.

How to Fight Naglfar in Final Fantasy 15

Coming upon Randolph the blacksmith in Lestallum in FFXV

First, you must speak to Randolph -- a legendary blacksmith who resides in Lestallum. He will offer you five quests, the last of which is the fight with Omega Weapon/Naglfar.

Here is the full list of quests, bosses, and weapons you will get from Randolph:

  • Quest: A Legend Is Born
    • Boss: Bennu
    • Reward: Iron Duke (Greatsword)
  • Quest: Dreadful Legend
    • Boss: Malbadoom
    • Reward: Dragoon Lance (Polearm)
  • Quest: A Legend Wrapped in an Enigma
    • Boss: Sir Tonberry
    • Reward: Ziedrich (Shield)
  • Quest: Cursed Legend
    • Boss: Phalaris
    • Reward: Soul Saber (Sword)

When you're done with all four bosses, you will now be able to fight Naglfar as a part of the Wondrous Weapon quest.

How to Defeat Naglfar in Final Fantasy 15

Attempting to beat Naglfar the Omega Weapon in Final Fantasy XV

This night monster appears to be covered with some sort of protective shielding, which makes him completely immune to physical attacks. However, he is weak to all kinds of elements.

You need to utilize this weakness and enchant your weaponry with such elements as Flare, Freeze, and Electon. Also, you need a weapon that can be easily thrown at Naglfar from a distance, as you don't want to be anywhere near this powerful foe.

The best weapon for this purpose is the Star of the Rogue -- a shuriken capable of dealing multiple hits in rapid succession. This weapon can be found in Myrlwood.

Lastly, since the auto-evasion feature doesn't work with Naglfar, you will have to rely completely on manual dodging. So get as good at it as possible.

When you're done fighting Omega Weapon/Naglfar, you will return to Randolph, who will reward you with Zwill Crossblades (Daggers).
