It’s perfect for getting up-close and personal with your foes, or for pulling off a successful drive-by in true Grand Theft Auto style. No matter your playstyle, the AP Pistol will be essential in your arsenal.
Special Carbine Mk II
For dealing damage at a medium distance, there’s no better option than the Special Carbine Mk II. This fully-automatic rifle can be fitted with a variety of different modifications to improve its performance.
To unlock the Special Carbine Mk II, you’ll need to bring the base Special Carbine to the Weapon Workshop and spend $135,000 to upgrade it. The Mk II has a slightly higher damage profile, making it that little bit better than the base Special Carbine.
This upgraded version of the Special Carbine is easy to control and will be able to easily drop targets at almost any distance.
If you’re looking for a weapon that decimates at close range, the Assault Shotgun is the weapon for you. This automatic shotgun will effortlessly tear through any enemy up-close.
You can unlock the Assault Shotgun at Level 37 and will set you back only $10,000. It’s especially suited for the indoor combat you’ll often find yourself in during missions, but it will also destroy other players in PvP.
No matter what weapon it comes up against in close-quarters combat, the Assault Shotgun will win.
Heavy Sniper Mk II
While the Assault Shotgun dominates up-close, The Heavy Sniper Mk II will be able to pick-off targets at range with ease.
You’ll need to spend some time in GTA Online to unlock this weapon. You need to hit Level 90 to unlock the base version, then spend $165,375 at the weapon workshop to upgrade it to Mk II. While the regular Heavy Sniper does 216 damage, upgrading it will increase its damage to 230 without affecting its fire rate.

The Mk II is still not capable of eliminating a player in one shot to the chest, but aim for the head and you’ll have no problem taking people out no matter how far away they are.
Sticky Bombs can be bought from Ammu-Nation for $600 each, after reaching Level 19, and you should absolutely invest in them.

Aside from the fact that they are handy and convenient to use, they’re just so much fun! Throw them into the road to obliterate an oncoming player, use them to create chaos, and use humans as dartboards.
This energy-firing weapon of mass destruction is worth it for appearance alone. Something that looks like it’s been stripped from an alien spaceship, the Railgun can be bought from Ammu-Nation for $250,000 after completing the Minor Turbulence mission in GTA 5.

A punishing weapon if you’re not accurate, but a deadly open if you stay on target. It can annihilate an unarmored vehicle in one go and is a classically crazy weapon to own in GTA.

Here’s how you can find and open Vaults in Fortnite Chapter 3.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Vault locations
There are seven vaults on the newly changed Fortnite Island. They are scattered in different areas and locating them can be difficult. You can check out those locations on the map above and we’ll go over each one of them.

- Southeast of the lake in Coney Crossroads
- Northeast of The Daily Bugle

How to open Vaults in Fortnite
After you come across one of these vaults, you won’t be able to open them on your own. You’ll need to visit them while playing in Duos, Trios, or Squads. Your teammates will then help you open the group lock.
It’s worth keeping in mind that unlocking a Vault will create noise that might attract nearby enemies. So, we recommend staying prepared for a battle with some powerful weapons and gear.
You can then enter to collect some high-tier weapons and loot from the rare chests inside. There are also blue crystals known as Gem Fragments that you’ll be able to collect from each Vault.

How to slide in Fortnite Chapter 3
Fortnite’s newest mechanic that lets you slide across the map. Here’s how to do it, along with details on how to slide cancel.
Epic Games added a slide mechanic in Fortnite Chapter 3, and here’s everything you need to know about it, including how to cancel slides during combat.
There are many changes to sort through in Fortnite Chapter 3. We have a new Battle Pass featuring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Spider-Man as unlockable skins, and some new mechanics to give players an advantage in battle.
One of these allows players to slide across the map while running. This feature has been a part of games like Apex Legends for a long time and is now finally in Fortnite. It’s also fairly easy to pull off during combat.
Here’s everything you need to know about sliding in Fortnite.
How to slide in Fortnite on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC
You can slide in Fortnite by running and pressing the crouch button. As we said before, this isn’t too difficult to do during combat, and you just need to know which button to press..
Here are the default slide buttons on all platforms:
- PS4/ PS5: Press the right analogue stick down
- Xbox One/ Xbox Series X: Press the right analogue stick down
- Nintendo Switch: Press the right control stick down
- PC: Press the CTRL key
While this is the default crouch button, it’s important to note that this may not apply if you have changed it in your keybinding settings. So you’ll need to remember what button it is or reset it to the default settings.
How To slide cancel in Fortnite
Sometimes you might accidentally start sliding when you didn’t intend to, and this could seriously harm you during a gunfight. Luckily, the game lets you cancel the animation by pressing the crouch button a second time.
This will instantly get your character back into the running position. You can only slide down steep slopes such as hills, mountains, and slanting rooftops. Since you can use your weapon while sliding, this can be useful in battles.
You can also change the “slide hold time” when playing on a controller. This changes the duration for which you need to hold the crouch button to get your character to begin sliding.

Apex Legends: Crypto Heirloom model & animations leaked by dataminers
New Apex Legends leaks have uncovered the long awaited model and animations for Crypto’s Heirloom, which will likely drop in Season 12.
Apex Legends dataminers have been hard at work uncovering future content for Respawn’s battle royale, and the latest revealed Crypto’s Heirloom.
The Season 11 Collection Event will bring Wattson‘s Heirloom, but one character in particular has been amongst the talk of whose Heirloom will be next for quite a few seasons.
Finally, we have more information on Crypto‘s Heirloom, including when it could be arriving, the 3D model, and some of the animations.
Every Apex Legends player is desperate for an Heirloom and the Collection Events stand as the easiest way to obtain one. The only catch is that you don’t get to pick which one you get as the only one available during these events is the latest one to drop.

Although they aren’t the most popular Legend in the game, Crypto has always been a fan-favorite when it comes to personality and style. The Korean hacker was one of the first new Legends to drop, being introduced in Season 3 along with World’s Edge.
Despite being introduced so early, we have yet to see his Heirloom, well, until now.
Apex Legends Crypto Heirloom leak
The leaker responsible for Crypto’s Heirloom leaks is Thordan Smash. This is a very reliable source as they have been involved in several leaks that have come to fruition such as Ash’s abilities prior to Season 11.
In their latest video, they showed off footage of Crypto’s Heirloom from the player’s perspective. The Heirloom takes the form of a retracting Korean Jikdo sword. The version of Crypto’s Heirloom shown in the video is clearly unfinished as it doesn’t possess any textures or colors.
Having said that, we can probably expect the Jikdo to have the green and white pallet Crypto is known for.
We also got to see some interesting animations in the video. It seems the Jikdo will be retractable, and when Crypto pulls it out, it will extend almost like a lightsaber.
Crypto holds the Heirloom like a sword and for those who love Heirloom designs that actually look like weapons, this one is definitely for you.
That’s all on Crypto’s Heirloom leaks, for more on Apex Legends be sure to check out when Apex Legends’ third Anniversary is.
