Rockstar is paying tribute to Halloween with a new ‘The Phantom Car’ special event in GTA Online, follow our guide and we’ll tell you how to trigger this terrifying ordeal and explain what it entails.

GTA Online’s huge mass of content is always being expanded upon with fresh updates and limited-time events. Halloween is upon us, and Rockstar is honoring it with The Phantom Car Halloween event.

It’s a tribute to the 1983 horror film Christine based on the works of legendary author Stephen King. A crazed car that comes to life and possesses a range of negative, and deadly, emotions that lead to terror for several teens.

Here’s how you can set up a showdown with The Phantom Car in GTA Online.

What is The Phantom Car Halloween event in GTA Online?

The Phantom Car seems to be a limited-time event that players will only be able to enjoy for the next two or three weeks of the Halloween portion of the year.

Players will be terrorized during sessions of GTA Online by the meddlesome car that, under the conditions being met, will stalk players driving around in a vehicle, or attempt to run them down if they’re on foot.

How to start The Phantom Car event in GTA Online

Thanks to both Tez2 and GTA Series Videos, as they have been able to pinpoint the specific requirements you’ll need to know to trigger the event.

Here’s how you can ensure you bump into The Phantom Car:

  1. Boot up GTA Online
  2. Enter ‘Free Roam,’ and don’t enter a building
  3. Wait until the in-game time is between the hours of 9pm-5am
  4. You must not use helicopters, boats, planes, vehicles with weapons, the Deluxo, or either the Oppressor/Oppressor MK2
  5. The Phantom Car will only appear if at least 16 minutes have elapsed since the free roam session began
  6. You can’t do this solo, there has to be at least one other player in the session
  7. With all these requirements met, walk or drive around until you hear some ominous music
  8. If you’re in a vehicle, you should see a Declasse Tornado with just its headlights on following you
  9. If you’re on foot, the car will be on fire, have bright red headlights and will aggressively drive towards you non-stop
  10. Either concentrate your fire on the car until it blows up, or do one of the “must not” conditions above to make the car disappear

Apex Legends has brought loads of new content for players through Season 11, as well as shifting the Legend meta with various buffs and nerfs.

Respawn is great at keeping the game fresh and has done an excellent job at staying on top of fixes and updates. One thing Apex Legends is known for is its extravagant Collection Event updates that come every season.

One will be arriving in Season 11 and we have the details.

Skins

With the release of the Apex Legends Raiders Collection Event trailer, we finally got a glimpse at the skins. As with every Collection Event, there will be a total of 24 items to unlock. Obtain them all and the Heirloom is yours.

The theme will be around Pirates, which is very fitting for Storm Point’s tropical setting. The skins featured in the collection are Pirate-themed, decorated with skull and bones, eye patches, and also bandanas.

Further, as well as the collection, there will also be various other skins available in the store during the event.

Winter Express LTM

As many will know, the Holo-day Bash event this year has been implemented into the Raider’s Collection Event. This means that from December 7 to December 21, players will be able to drop into the Winter Express LTM.

Players will be able to choose their loadout this year and drop down towards the World’s Edge train to battle it out in a round-based mode that sees the last team standing on the train win.

The train will move to various POIs as the rounds go on, so make sure you’re sticking with the team and being aware of your surroundings as you battle for control of the train.

Wattson Heirloom

The Apex Legends Raiders Collection Event will also bring a new Heirloom for players to unlock through obtaining all 24 items in the collection.

This season’s Heirloom is for Wattson. The Wattson Heirloom was previously leaked, and it seems the design was spot on.

The Heirloom looks like some sort of electric prodding device that features emotes with a Nessie plushie. The Heirloom also seems to have a digital screen with a Nessie Tamagotchi that Wattson can interact with and keep happy.

This Nessie Tamagotchi will likely react to Wattson’s actions like when she gets a kill with it or even if she just pulls it out.

Challenges & rewards

The Raiders Collection Event also brings a brand new reward tracker for players to get through. Players will need to gain Event Points by completing challenges.

The rewards include Pirate-themed Charms, a Crypto skin, an Alternator skin, and a Hemlock skin.


That’s all the current information we have on the Apex Legends Season 11 Raiders Collection Event. As more information is released, we will update this piece so stay tuned.

Players have had plenty of time to get to grips with Battlefield 2042, which was released on November 19 across PCs and consoles. As well as using the best weapons and knowing the layout of all the maps, dialing in your aim and movement is extremely important to winning Battlefield matches.

Unfortunately, some have been experiencing an odd issue since Update #3 which causes the mouse to freeze. Luckily, there are a few easy ways you can fix the problem, one of which is to reset your settings.

For those who had to go through this process, we have all the best mouse and keyboard settings, including keybindings, so you won’t have to scramble trying to figure out what you previously had. Plus, you may find some settings that will vastly improve your game.

Battlefield 2042 players roast “goofy” Santa Claus Holiday skin

Battlefield 2042 players aren’t happy with the new Santa Claus holiday-themed skin and are roasting it online.

Published

on

DICE added decided to bring the holiday spirit to Battlefield 2042 by adding a Santa Claus skin to the game, but unimpressed players have been relentlessly roasting it.

Battlefield 2042 has a variety of new content for fans to enjoy, like Portal which lets you create your own game modes, as well as some powerful new weapons like the SVK Marksman Rifle.

The developers have also decided to get players into the holiday spirit by adding a Santa Claus skin. However, Battlefield fans aren’t impressed with this cosmetic and are openly roasting it online.

Battlefield 2042 player in hazard zone

Reddit user SoyUnGregorio shared an image of the new Santa Claus skin in the Battlefield 2042 subreddit, and they were not impressed. “DICE, what are you doing with the game,” they asked.

The skin is called Father Winter, and players can unlock it by completing missions in Week 3 of the pre-season. Many of the commenters shared the Redditor’s opinion and began roasting the cosmetic.

“I knew clown show skins like these were coming,” one player sarcastically replied. “But DICE wasted no time and added them in the very first update. Incredible.” Many users jokingly stated that they can’t believe this is real.

“When people talked about EA/DICE introducing Santa Claus and clown skins to Battlefield I thought we were all just joking around,” commented another player.

A few users did enjoy this new skin. “Yeah I think it’s definitely good they did it,” wrote ozner55. “The game overall just needs a little more content. Even if it’s a goofy Christmas thing, I’m totally fine with that. Having new stuff to unlock is simply positive.”

The Battlefield 2042 launch has been troublesome, and this new cosmetic hasn’t done much to get the community in a better mood when playing the game. There have also been many other problems.

Players have complained about the map design and Shroud explained why weapon bloom is ruining the game. We’ve also seen a bug that makes smoke grenades useless and error messages plaguing fans.
