Fortnite Season 5, Week 8’s challenges will have you deliver a truck to Sunflower’s farm, so here’s where to find the farm and the easiest way to complete the challenge.
The newest batch of challenges for Week 8 of Fortnite Season 5 has arrived, and this time around, they are agriculture themed. You’ll be tasked to drive a car through a cornfield, destroy boxes of produce, and deliver a truck to a farm.
These challenges are simple compared to previous weeks, and will net you a ton of XP.
Delivering the truck to Sunflower’s Farm can be completed easily in Team Rumble, or even just regular solos, but you need to know where to go.
Where to find Sunflower’s Farm in Fortnite
Fortnite Season 5, Week 8, asks you to “Deliver a truck to Sunflower’s Farm.”
The Sunflower Farm is located to the North-East of Colossal Coliseum at the edge of the sand. To be specific, it’s the farm area behind the Orchard and Tomato Town pizzeria. Simply drive a truck there from anywhere on the map and the challenge will be complete.
You can drive any old truck to the farm, but we’d recommend taking it from somewhere relatively nearby. Another Week 8 challenge asks players to destroy gas pumps, so you might be out of luck when trying to refuel your vehicle.
Up to two trucks spawn at the gas station to the North-East of the farm, and you can also find some on the road below the ‘S’ from Craggy Cliffs on the map.
These vehicles are likely to be heavily contested for the first couple of days, so make sure you’re the first on the ground and quickly drive the vehicle away, leaving the chaos in your wake. Once you’re away, simply drive the truck to the farm, and the challenge will be complete.
If you don’t manage to get a truck on your first go, either leave or play out the match, and try again next game.
Also, while you’re at the farm, you can try to destroy three apple and tomato produce boxes at The Orchard Farmers Market, which is also required to complete the Week 8 challenges.
Unexpectedly, Naughty Dog’s next game may not be a new Uncharted or even a sequel to The Last of Us Part II. A Senior Concept Artist for Naughty Dog has hinted at a new IP entirely.
In a somewhat surprising turn of events, the next direction for Naughty Dog may not be a familiar one. It’s not out of the question for them to explore new avenues as they generally don’t like to stay on the same franchise for too long.
Given how TLOU2 ended, it seemed a foregone conclusion that a third game would be next. However, some concept art would indicate that a new IP could be in the works.
New Naughty Dog Fantasy IP
The revelation arises from a post on Naughty Dog Senior Concept Artist Hyoung Nam’s ArtStation account. The platform is used to create exposure for artists to showcase their portfolio of work.
Hyoung posted three amazing pieces of artwork, but also paired them with an interesting caption, “Inspire from new game. You know what I’m talking about…”.
The three images are well-detailed and their theme is noticeably unlike anything that Naughty Dog has done previously. They’ve either made cartoony games in the form of Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter, or mature games like Uncharted & The Last of Us.
Naughty Dog love new challenges and exploring a fantasy setting across a kingdom is certainly not beyond them. Following in the steps of The Witcher 3, Lord of the Rings, and Game of Thrones, Naughty Dog would thrive on the opportunity to make something incredible like this.
It’s a very interesting message that can be interpreted in several ways. On one hand, especially in the modern age, hints and easter eggs are always a fantastic way to drum up speculation and get people talking.
On the other hand, you have to question if this is the way they want to unofficially let people know about their new game?
As is to be expected, this information is purely speculation and rumor at this point.
You can dish out a ton of damage by throwing grenades in Apex Legends, but there’s a technique that you can use to catch your enemies completely by surprise, especially at long-range.
There is a wide variety of weapons and throwables available to you when playing Apex Legends. Each of them suits different combat situations, and grenades are perfect for dealing explosive damage to enemies from a distance.
If your throwing arm is strong, you can dish out a lot of pain to your foes. A well-thrown grenade is difficult to dodge due to its quick ignition time, and you can use a neat trick to achieve that from a distance.
This technique makes the grenade explode immediately upon landing which makes the blast unavoidable, and you can do this when throwing them at long-range.
Apex Legends grenade trick makes them unavoidable at long-range
Reddit user EddygCPA posted a thread to the Apex University subreddit, where they showed how you can throw grenades with such accuracy that they explode on landing. At the time of writing, this thread and has over 3500 upvotes.
This trick involves aiming directly upwards when throwing a grenade at long-range. You can then adjust the angle so that it lands on your opponents from above, and then immediately explodes.
You would not be able to achieve the same effect if you aimed directly at your enemies, since they would see it coming, and immediately try getting out of its way. Making use of the trick will grant you the element of surprise.
You can improve your chances of success when using this technique by putting in some time at the Firing Range to practice your grenade throwing. This trick is ideal for catching other players by surprise the next time you throw a grenade.
There are plenty of other tricks that you can discover, which is why you’re encouraged to play the battle royale as creatively as you can. Recently, some players found a technique to counter door-campers by experimenting with Horizon’s abilities.
With Apex Legends Season 8 set to launch on February 2, we will have even more opportunities to find new tricks in the game. Once we find some, we’ll be sure to update you.
With Halo Infinite being the next exciting step in the franchise, we thought we’d reminisce back to our top 5 favorite weapons in the history of Halo.
Halo has no shortage of amazing weapons, many bringing back nostalgic memories for fans. With every new installment came some exciting new weapons, all with their own great mechanics.
Some of these weapons translated well into the competitive gameplay of Multiplayer, changing the way the game was played. Here are our picks for our top 5 weapons in Halo. This list will be a mix of power weapons and starting weapons.
#5 – Rocket Launcher
Halo 3’s M19-B SAM Rocket Launcher was no joke. Shoot this into a building or a crowd of enemies would give you easy double or triple kills. If you missed your first shot, you’d still have your second one ready to go to finish off enemies or get a second shot at an easy kill.
The fight for this weapon would always be a bloody one at the start of games, but the player who managed to wield this weapon would clear out objectives with ease.
#4 – Sniper (Halo 2, Halo 3)
Simply put – the snipers in Halo 2 and Halo 3 felt amazing. The feeling of landing a well-placed headshot was unmatched by other weapons. The sniper took skill, and would never one-shot an enemy at full health unless you hit them in the head.
The weapon also had a unique ricochet property, sending missed shots flying off walls until it hit an enemy or lost momentum. Ricochet shots were always awesome to witness, especially in Halo 3.
#3 – Halo 2’s Battle Rifle
The Battle Rifle is the most iconic weapon in the Halo franchise. This burst rifle takes down enemies in just a few well-placed bursts to the head and is the ultimate weapon of skill for any Halo player.
We believe all the Battle Rifles are great in their own way, however, the Halo 2 Battle Rifle was especially nostalgic.
#2 – Halo Combat Evolved’s Magnum
Halo Combat Evolved never saw a formal online multiplayer mode until the introduction of the Anniversary release on the Xbox 360 and later on the Master Chief collection. The Magnum was the standard spawn weapon, and it packed a punch at all ranges.
It’s hailed as the most overpowered starting weapon in the franchise. In just a few headshots, you can take out enemies from any range. It made almost all other weapons useless, and since Combat Evolved couldn’t be patched, there was no changing this weapon as games do now.
#1 – Halo 2: Energy Sword
The Halo 2 Energy Sword is the most lucrative power weapon of the franchise for one simple reason: it has unlimited uses. The sword has no durability as it did in Halo 3, which means players would fight for the weapon for the entire game.
Simply put, there were no downsides of this energy sword, which made it significantly overpowered.
That concludes our list of the top 5 weapons in the Halo franchise. If we missed any, or if you have any favorites, don’t forget to tweet us @CharlieIntel.
There are brand new challenges available for you in week 8 of Fortnite Season 5. Here’s how you can get them done while making your way to the next tier of the Battle Pass.
Fortnite Season 5 is set to end on March 15, 2021, which means you just have a short while left to get through the Battle Pass. Luckily, there are plenty of new weekly challenges that give you opportunities to earn XP, and get yourself some cool cosmetics.
We’re now in week 8, and Epic Games have brought brand new tasks for you to tackle that are available until Thursday, January 28. Many of these revolve around farms, as well as the destruction of property. Here’s everything that you’ll need to do.
Fortnite Season 5 Week 8 challenges
You can complete a total of eight seven Epic Quests at own leisure, along with a timed Legendary challenge that’s available until the end of the week.
While last week’s challenges focused on shields, the theme this time around is farming. Here are all the Fortnite Season 5 Week 8 challenges:
Destroy apple and tomato produce boxes at The Orchard Farmers Market (3)
Drive a car through the corn field at Steel Farm (1)
Deliver a truck to Sunflower’s Farm (1)
Pistol Damage (250)
Collect Gold Bars (500)
Blow up a gas pump (1)
Distance traveled Gliding (3,500)
Eat Fish (10/20/30/40/50)
As you may have noticed, three of the challenges will require you to head over to a Farm or Farmers Market on the map. You can land directly at the Orchard’s Farmer’s Market, and start destroying boxes there before rotating to the Steel Farm.
Aside from that, we have a fairly standard set of Epic Quests that you’d come to expect, and that are fairly easy to complete. Pistols are common, so you’ll have no trouble finding one, and then use it to deal a total of 250 damage to players.
You can gain some distancing while gliding right after you jump from the Battle Bus, and Gold Bars can be found in safes, tills, and washing machines. You can blow up a gas pump by heading over to a gas station, and then shooting one repeatedly.
You’ll earn 20,000 XP for each Epic Quest that you complete, and can earn up to 140,000 XP total by getting them all. Then you can increase your earnings even further by attempting week 8’s Legendary quest.
This requires you to catch some fish with a Rod, Harpoon Gun, or explosives before eating them. This challenge has different tiers, and you’ll need to eat 50 fish in order to complete it. This will net you a total of 55,500 XP.
That sums up many of the weekly tasks, and we’ll post separate guides for Farm challenges when they go live. Be sure to complete them before they expire on Thursday, January 28, 2021.
Epic Games have brought The Predator to Fortnite Season 5, and you can unlock the Bio-Helmet Online emote by visiting his apartment. Here’s where you can find this location on the map.
The Predator has finally arrived in Fortnite as part of the v15.21 update, and you can find him at Stealthy Stronghold. You can go over there to battle him for possession of his Invisibility Cloak, as well as to unlock the Predator skin.
You can then wear his skin to complete Jungle Hunter Quests in the Battle Pass to unlock the full Predator cosmetics set. This includes a Bio-Helmet Online emote that you get by visiting his apartment in Hunter’s Haven.
Where is Predator’s apartment in Fortnite?
You can find Predator’s apartment at the center of the map, just south of the Zero Point and the sandy area. Jump from the Battle Bus near there, and then make your way towards Hunter’s Haven.
Once you arrive there, you can spot the building on the northwest side of the area. A lot of other players will also be trying to get to the apartment, so you’ll have to be ready for a fight. You can improve your chances of success by landing directly on top of the apartment.
From there, you can make your way down while taking care of any players that you will encounter along the way. We’ve made the apartment easier to find by marking its exact location on the Fortnite map below.
You’ll know you’re in the right building due to the several Predator-themed decorations that can be found around the room, such as a Weapon Rack, Medkit, and ‘Nightmare Platform.’ Just make sure you’ve eliminated your enemies first so you don’t get attacked.
Now that you’re inside the apartment, you can collect the Predator’s Bio-helmet Online emote that will allow you to remove his mask. Now you’ll be able to play as him while showing off his “one ugly” visage that Arnold referred to in the 1987 classic.
Keep in mind that you can only tackle this quest if you’ve already gotten the Predator skin. You will need it to complete the other Jungle Hunter Quests as well, and you can read our guide to beating Predator to learn how you can unlock it.
Twitch streamers have started dedicating more time to Grand Theft Auto V’s roleplay mod, which is surging in popularity as a result. Here’s everything you need to know about it before jumping in.
GTA V roleplay is a multiplayer mod that PC players can use to play Grand Theft Auto V as NPCs. This is highly customizable and gives you a huge amount of control over the story you craft for yourself in Los Santos.
Many popular Twitch streamers have made this mod so popular that its servers have returned. It can be a bit confusing if you’re trying it out for the first time, so we’ll go over everything you need to know about GTA V roleplay.
Can you play GTA V’s RP mod?
If you own a copy of GTA V on PC then you’re eligible to play the RP mod, but you can only access it via modified games clients such as FiveM and Grand Theft Multiplayer. You can join the server once you’ve made your way there.
You can also earn yourself an invite by roleplaying exceptionally well. This will grant you access to certain exclusive communities, and you’ll soon find yourself rising in popularity. For this reason, you’re encouraged to be as creative as possible.
Certain servers take their roleplaying more seriously than others, with specific rules being set in place. If you find yourself in one of these, you’ll have to ask for tips on how to access menus or perform specific actions.
How to join a GTA V RP server
As we mentioned before, aside from a few open servers, there are some high-level RP ones that require invites to join. If you want to start, then you can head over to their forum or website and then sign up to join them.
Keep in mind that many of these are extremely difficult to get into, and you’ll have to be a particularly talented roleplayer to gain entry. NoPixel’s GTA V RP server is one of the most exclusive ones, and it receives a high amount of applications.
You can also try your luck with other popular servers such as the ones by TwitchRP, Mafia World, and Rage. Be ready to commit to your character if you’re serious about joining these, and don’t break the roleplay.
Which streamers play GTA V RP?
This mod’s recent surge in popularity can be attributed to popular streamers such as Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar and Saqib ‘Lirik’ Zahid. Both of these players drop into GTA V RP from time to time and play with their own unique characters.
We recommend that you watching others play first, so you can get a better understanding of how this mod works before jumping in yourself. You can check out some players on Twitch, and see how they go about crafting the roleplay.
That covers everything you need to know about Grand Theft Auto V’s roleplay mod. We hope that this guide has been helpful.
The new season of Apex Legends is just around the corner. The developers have let us know which Legends they have plans to give nerfs and buffs to when the Season 8 update goes live in February.
Apex Legends Season 8, titled Mayhem, has been officially been confirmed by Respawn to drop on February 2, 2021. There is a plethora of new content on the horizon, such as LTM’s, Legends, weapon adjustments, and map changes.
The devs will also take this opportunity to fine-tune the existing Legends. Many of the more powerful ones will be nerfed, while the ones that need a buff will receive just that.
Lead Game Designer Daniel Klein has revealed these new changes to players.
Apex Legends Season 8 nerfs and buffs
Wattson is a powerful character, and this is evident by the Legend’s extremely high win rate. This makes her a popular pick among Apex fans and so the devs find it difficult to implement any changes to her abilities.
“The problem is that Wattson has a very high win rate, says Klein. “One that climbs aggressively with skill as well.”
Any change that they make to her abilities can result in a massive shift in how she functions. “She’s fallen off from her near 100% pick rate peak, but it doesn’t take very much to push an already strong character from never seen to everywhere and a pain in the butt.”
She has the highest win rate, along with Horizon, Wraith, Gibraltar, and Lifeline. One fan suggested that the devs add an option to toggle Wattson’s Perimeter Security, which would enable her to take her opponents by surprise.
“We really need to find non-power impacting ways to make Wattson more fun,” Klein said. “I think the toggle on fences has the potential to do that because you may also screw yourself by turning them off at the wrong time.”
Wraith has gone through a few throughout her time in Apex Legends. She has a history of being either too powerful or having broken hitboxes, and the developers have to repeatedly “fix” her.
“With Wraith, our approach is going to be very similar to Pathfinder. We’re going to take a look at her hitboxes and see how much wiggle room we have there. With Pathfinder, it turned out that we had so much… that was a 20% increase in hitbox size.”
He made it clear that they will focus on fine-tuning her hitboxes by going the same route they did with Pathfinder’s changes in November’s Season 7 update.
Horizon has won over fans ever since she joined the roster in Season 7. Her unique abilities have made her a powerhouse with a huge record of wins, despite the nerfs she has received to her Gravity Lift.
“Our theory internally right now is that she’s too safe with the tactical,” Klein says. “She can use it in so many situations to get out of trouble, and most frustratingly, she can sit atop the tactical and use a battery while A/D strafing faster than she could on the ground.”
The devs will focus on her mobility, while also being open to other possibilities. “The Pathfinder changes have taught us that attacking the hitboxes to bring a character’s win rate under control, without making them less fun is a promising route to try. I’d like us to do this more often.”
Associate Live Balance Designer John ‘JayBiebs’ Larson said: “It’s safe to say (Horizon will) be getting nerfed, but how we do that is important. Looking at her tactical alone there are all sorts of dials we can turn including vertical lift speed, horizontal speed/acceleration, ejection speed/time, cool down, weapon accuracy, and the list goes on.”
Revenant has an interesting kit and the devs touched upon this Legend when discussing the possibility of reversing hitbox changes. They previously stated that they have no plans to buff Revenant in Season 8. However, they have brought the idea up among themselves.
“We’ve been struggling to find a good buff for Revenant,” said Klein, “I don’t think we’ve properly discussed just shrinking his hitboxes to give him power without making him more frustrating. I’ll bring it up in our balance round table.”
This change to the hitbox would make the Legend much more aggressive. But if they don’t tune it just right then it can become a problem. It will be no fun to play against Revenant if you can’t hit him at all, so they’ll have to be careful.
Rampart has started off as an incredibly strong option but has fallen in popularity recently. The Season 7 updates did not buff her up as much as other Legends and this left fans a little disappointed. Some of them even suggested a buff for her.
She is confirmed to be getting a buff to her Amped Walls ability in Season 8. The devs will add 45 health to her Tactical and you can read more about these plans in a thread posted to the Apex Legends subreddit.
That sums up every confirmed nerf and buff for Apex Legends Season 8. As we receive more information about the upcoming update, we’ll be sure to update you.
Here’s all of the best and worst Halo games ranked. This will be all of the main titles, so spinoff games like Halo Wars and Spartan Assault will be omitted.
With the release of Halo Infinite upon us, we thought we’d rank all of the Halo games from worst to best, so you know which games you should be playing if you’re a prospective player looking to get into the franchise, or a returning fan looking to experience the best games.
For the premiere gaming experiences, we recommend playing older Halo games on the Master Chief Collection on PC or Xbox One. You can always play the games on legacy Xbox 360 hardware, but the MCC is the best of both worlds, giving players the opportunity to change between remastered and old graphics on the fly for the first two games.
Games like Halo 3 and 4 will only give you the classic experience on Xbox 360, but playing on PC or Xbox One will give players a more high definition and smooth experience.
#7 – Halo 4
For the worst on the list, we went with Halo 4. This game was highly hyped, and upon release didn’t feel anything like a proper Halo game. The campaign was a bit lackluster, and the iconic multiplayer was revamped to play more like a Call of Duty title.
The custom loadouts and Spartan abilities were highly debated among the community, making Halo a much more casual game overall. While on paper this may have been a good idea to onboard more players, it, unfortunately, took away the classic formula with it, which drove away some hardcore players.
The only decent part for this title is the Campaign, which does have a few memorable moments. It starts off quite slow, but picks up as time goes on.
#6 – Halo 5: Guardians
Halo 5: Guardians was a let-down to many, and offered a poor campaign experience, which came under scrutiny due to the dodgy marketing called “Hunt The Truth”. Players were led to believe there would be a huge showdown between Spartan Locke and Master Chief, which ended up as a huge disappointment. Since then, many fans have accused Microsoft of misleading marketing regarding the campaign.
While the campaign is by far the worst of the franchise, the multiplayer is better than 4. Most of the original formula is still present, rewarding players for well-placed headshots and removing loadouts. Halo 5 has drawbacks though, with spartan dashes, ground pounds, and sprint for every player, which made the game much faster when compared to previous titles. This game also introduced loot box microtransactions to the franchise, which also sparked heated debates.
#5 – Halo 3: ODST
Note: From here on out for the list, all of these games are stellar Halo titles made by Bungie. They are all great in their own ways.
Halo 3 ODST is a campaign only “DLC” of 3, that was released as a standalone game. It sets a much different tone than the other Halo games, opting for a gritty and dark open-world experience in the city of New Mombasa on Earth.
The story follows a group of ODST soldiers during the initial Covenant invasion of earth. As the main character, you’ll uncover stories of the elite soldiers who fell during the invasion and get to experience the fights and sacrifices they made while fighting for their home.
Overall, this game is a must play for any hardcore player interested in the story of the Halo franchise.
#4 – Halo: Reach
Following the success of 3 and ODST, Bungie doubled down on prequels and delivered fans Halo Reach. Players will experience the heartbreaking story of the fall of planet Reach, through the eyes of Noble squad.
The game also includes a revamped multiplayer experience, which was the start of the divide of the Halo community. Loadouts were introduced in this game, giving players the option to choose spartan abilities, which included sprint, which was never an option in previous titles. A wave-based mode called “firefight” was also introduced.
#3 – Halo 2
Halo 2 is the second chapter of Master Chief’s story, and arguably the best campaign. Take control of both the Master Chief and The Arbiter as their unique stories unfold. Play as both the hero and the enemy, and discover there’s more than just one side to the war…
As for the multiplayer, Halo 2 is the ultimate classic gameplay experience. The servers for the old Xbox system are shut down, but you can still play classic gameplay through The Master Chief Collection.
#2 – Halo: Combat Evolved
Play where it all began. Experience the game that put Bungie on the map. Halo Combat Evolved shows the legendary beginning of the Master Chief story, and the beginning of one of the most iconic franchises in gaming.
You can experience Combat Evolved on the classic Xbox, or get the remastered version on Xbox 360. Steam also offers Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary in The Master Chief Collection, where you can play the game with the updated graphics, or the classic graphics. Online servers are currently running for classic gameplay in the MCC.
#1 – Halo 3
Halo 3 is one of the most iconic games of the Xbox 360 era. Halo 3 was the first Halo released for the Xbox 360, and gave players online experiences that will last as memories for a lifetime. The campaign was masterful, putting players in the shoes of the Master Chief as he fights to finish the Covenant War.
Beautiful set pieces, an amazing story, and a bittersweet ending await all players who experience the game. Once you finish the main story (or before), you can hop into the iconic Multiplayer experience and relive one of the best multiplayer games ever released.
A new Fortnite bug is causing aiming problems for players with the Baby Yoda back bling and is rendering the cosmetic useless. Now fans are Epic Games to provide a fix for this problem.
The Mandalorian headlined the Season 5 Battle Pass for Fortnite. Epic Games introduced a ton of new Mandalorian-themed cosmetics such as skins, a glider, the Razor Crest, and Beskar armor. There’s also a Baby Yoda back bling that you can equip at Level 100.
Many players have started to unlock the back bling as Season 5’s end draws near, but they’ve come to discover that it’s plagued by an extremely irritating bug that keeps them from being able to aim properly. Now, fans are demanding a fix from the developers.
New bug discovered in Fortnite’s Baby Yoda back bling
When you equip the Baby Yoda back bling it will block a good portion of the screen, and prevent you from seeing the game clearly. This happens after entering and exiting a car, which causes little Grogu to become static.
Reddit user SweggyBoi posted a clip of this bug in the official Fortnite: Battle Royale subreddit, and suggested that Epic Games either make the Child see-through when aiming, or move him more ot the left so that he doesn’t take up most of the screen.
One player added: “The view truly is awful with bulky skins and back blings. This one is super extreme though. Hope we just get some FOV settings finally so we can use more skins without having half the screen blocked.”
This post got over 10,000 upvotes at the time of writing, and other fans brought up a different problem with the back bling. The cosmetic tends to clip through walls or show around corners while you’re trying to hide from enemies.
The recent customizable superhero skin controversy led to the devs being accused of supporting “pay to win” cosmetics, and now the back bling is being called “pay to lose” due to its poor functionality in combat situations.
With Season 5 coming to an end on March 15, many Fortnite players have worked hard to get through most of the Battle Pass and unlock this cosmetic. Hopefully, we’ll see a fix for this problem before that time.
