Optic: None Muzzle: Flash Cone 12 Ga Barrel: 24.8” Task Force Body: Ember Sighting Point (or Mounted Flashlight) Magazine: Stanag 12 Rnd Tube Handle: None Stock: Marathon Stock So, we’re going with a maximised salvage and equipment drop rate in this loadout, which is massively beneficial throughout the game but especially in later rounds. The more salvage you get, the easier it is to armour up, upgrade your gun rarity, and buy killstreaks. Basically, you want as much gear as possible, and the bonuses from other attachments don’t make as much of a difference. That’s why the flashlight is here, as well as the 12-round Tube magazine to minimise reload requirements. We want speed too, so our Marathon Stock will stack really well with things like Stamin-Up to get us moving around the map faster. … [Read more...] about Cold War Zombies: Best loadout, weapons and field upgrades
High yield saving account
Perk 3 has a slightly lower power level so it’s a bit less down to the meta as to which one you choose. I personally prefer Amped, because when using two primary weapons like a Sniper and Assault Rifle it’s hugely beneficial to be able to switch between the two guns quickly. It’s saved me from death multiple times. Alternatively, Battle Hardened is also a nice one – it minimises the impact of enemy flashbangs and stunners, as well as stopping niche situations like gas grenades and snapshot grenades. Finally, Tracker can be a really strong option, especially late in the game, when you’re trying to hunt down the last of your foes to clinch that Warzone Victory. … [Read more...] about Best Warzone loadouts and top class setups
Are we excited that Massive is making a Star Wars game?Tim Clark, Brand Director: I love this. It's one of those announcements that just seems such a good fit that your brain immediately spins up with ideas. I played a lot of The Division, and only less of its sequel because by that point my Destiny 2 addiction had spiraled so irrevocably out of control. But if we're to assume that this new Star Wars game will be some sort of shared-world looter shooter, then the license feels like an incredibly good fit. What I think the continued love for KOTOR tells us is that Star Wars fans want to live in this universe, not just blow through a quick campaign like Fallen Order, and although live service loot games have a bit of a bad rap right now—largely I think because they're so hard to get right—Massive is one of very few studios with the experience to pull it off. … [Read more...] about What do we want from Ubisoft’s open world Star Wars game?
There is one more mod which merits serious consideration: High-Energy Fire. It grants a flat 20% buff to weapon damage while Charged with Light, which is obviously very good—especially in hard content. The reason I don't use it in this build is that each kill consumes a charge. That means it chews through charges very fast, often on trash mobs, and your other mods like Protective Light and Reactive Pulse will proc much less often. Therefore you really have to build around just High Energy Fire, using all your other slots to generate and store as many charges as possible. … [Read more...] about How to create a powerful Destiny 2 ‘Charged with Light’ build that works anywhere
Intel Rocket LakeWith a 19 percent IPC boost courtesy of the new Cypress Cove core, Intel's Rocket Lake chips are the biggest shake up to Intel's desktop CPU DNA in half a decade. They're built using the CPU smarts from 10th Gen Ice Lake mobile processors and the Xe graphics silicon from 11th Gen Tiger Lake chips, coming together to form a 14nm amalgam of the two 10nm parts. … [Read more...] about The 7 announcements from CES 2021 that every PC gamer should know about
