gta 5 online rockstar free $1 million ps plus

Our easy guide will provide you with a detailed explanation of how to claim $1 million a month in Rockstar’s GTA Online for absolutely nothing on PlayStation – specifically PS Plus members.

To say that Rockstar struck gold with Grand Theft Auto V would be the understatement of the century. The already insanely-popular sandbox series reached even higher levels of success thanks to GTA 5, selling over 140 million copies, and GTA Online in particular. The online-only, live service catapulted the franchise to new heights of profitability.

As such, the game was re-released on last-gen, and it’s even coming to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X for one more round. As a reward, Rockstar has decided to give back to the community by offering $1 million per month for PS Plus owners on PlayStation.

Regular beneficiaries of this promotion may wonder why they haven’t received their free $1 million this month. The system to hand out the money has changed, and we have all the details.

The ‘Expanded and Enhanced’ version of GTA 5 for PS5 and Xbox Series X was announced in mid-2020 and would represent the third generation of consoles that the game will feature on. Its announcement and eventual release will ensure that GTA fans are entertained until GTA VI has an official date.

To keep players ticking over until GTA V’s latest re-release, Rockstar has been providing weekly updates for GTA Online and even created a whole new expansion for the game with the Cayo Perico Heist.

They have also graciously offered all PlayStation owners with PS Plus memberships the chance to claim free, in-game money. For every month until the game’s release, PS Plus members would receive $1 million for free for simply logging into the game each month.

However, this is no longer the method required to claim the free currency. Instead, there is a slightly more convoluted way to do so.

Here is how to claim your free $1 million GTA$ a month:

  1. Boot up your PlayStation console
  2. Head to the PlayStation Store
  3. Search for “GTA Online PS Plus”
  4. One of the first options should be “PS Plus: GTA$1,000,000 for GTA Online”
  5. Click “Download”
  6. Now launch GTA 5 and go onto GTA Online
  7. You should find the money in your character’s account

You have until the last day of each month to claim your free $1 million, and then you have will have a chance to claim another $1 million the month after and so forth.

This promotion is only until GTA 5 comes out on the PS5 and Xbox Series X, so make the most of it whilst you can!

Grand Theft Auto V Expanded and Enhanced is due for release in the second-half of 2021.

You will find that two different challenges can be completed to add this weapon to your inventory. One of these challenges must be completed when you are either playing Cold War Multiplayer or Warzone.

This challenge tasks players with getting a One Shot, One Kill medal, and a melee kill in the same life in 15 different matches.

The start of Season 3 for Cold War saw this weapon become available for players to earn immediately. However, it will not be available for players to earn in Warzone until mid-season.

It is important to remember that you must complete the match you are playing for progress towards this unlock challenge to count. All progress will get lost if you do not finish the match.

Zombie players can acquire this weapon by killing a total of 300 enemies while using a Special or Melee weapon. However, the Special or Melee weapon must be Epic or Legendary quality.

The community also can get two other new weapons during this new period of content besides the Ballistic Knife when they unlock the PPSH submachine gun and the Swiss K31 sniper rifle. The best loadout for the PPSH and Swiss K31 will pair perfectly with the Ballistic Knife and allow for some impressive performances by players.

Best FOV Setting for Apex Legends

Apex Legends has a variety of settings which can enhance experience, FOV is one of these options but what’s the best number to have it at?

Published

apex legends best fov

Apex Legends has a variety of settings for players to customize the experience to their liking completely. This is great, especially when it comes to FOV, as even console players can change this setting to give them the best advantage possible.

Apex Legends developers, Respawn Entertainment, are known for their great communication with the players, implementing requested changes, and even settings.

Unlike many other games, most Apex Legends settings that we see on PC are also on consoles, allowing controller players a wide variety of options to compete with those on more powerful hardware systems. For those unaware, this also goes for FOV, which could be a game-changer for your experience in Apex Legends if you haven’t customized it yet.

Apex Legends FOV best setting

What is FOV?

FOV stands for field of view, which is essentially the size of the viewing angle on the screen. If this setting is higher, it will allow for a bigger viewing angle, letting players see more around them. If this setting is lower, it will decrease the viewing angle.

The default FOV on Apex Legends is set to 70, which to most experienced players is extremely low. The setting goes all the way up to 110.

What Apex Legends FOV setting is best?

Depending on your setup, the sweet spot or best FOV seems to be between 96 and 104. If you play on a bigger TV, you’re going to want to have your FOV on the higher end of the scale, as the bigger screen will allow you to still see up to longer ranges even with a higher FOV.

Of course, like all settings, it’s completely up to preference and your set up. However, one obvious thing is anything under 70 FOV is a huge disadvantage, as it will completely limit your ability to read what’s going on around you.

Apex Legends Best FOV

A high FOV on a smaller screen or monitor may distort your viewing and prevent you from seeing things at longer ranges, so in this case, you may want to keep your FOV in the 90s.

Ultimately, having your FOV between 90-104 will put you at an advantage over those with the default or lower, as you will be able to see more on the screen and react much quicker to situations. Lower FOV’s can feel too zoomed in and restricted, but FOV’s that are too high can feel too distant, so find what works best for you.

After setting a new, higher FOV, you may also want to play around with your sensitivity and increase that, too, as these settings scale, and a higher FOV might make your original sensitivity feel too slow.

You can find and open various safes around Fortnite Island to obtain some Gold Bars, and one of the Season 6 Week 6 Epic Quests requires you to open three. Here’s how you can find these locations on the map.

You can tackle the Fortnite Season 6 Week 6 challenges for the opportunity to earn a bunch of extra XP. This can help you unlock some impressive new cosmetics while progressing through the Season 6 Battle Pass.

One of this week’s Epic Quests requires you to find and open three safes on Fortnite Island. We’ve decided to make things a bit easier for you by putting together all the safe locations in the battle royale.

All safe locations in Fortnite Season 6

The good news is that you can find safes when visiting most POIs in Fortnite Season 6. Some of these areas have more safes than others, so you’ll want to look around in the more heavily populated ones.

Since the challenge only requires you to find and open three of them, you’ll want to visit one of the areas with the highest number of safes in them. These are Sweaty Sands, Craggy Cliffs, Dirty Docks, Holly Hedges, The Spire, and Pleasant Park.

You can take a look at all the safe locations in Fortnite Season 6 on the map below:

You’ll be able to complete this Epic Quest much quicker by visiting Sweaty Sands since it has a total of seven safes for you to open. Even if a few enemies come here for the same purpose, you’ll still find enough safes to open on your own.

You can take a look at the location of each safe within Sweaty Sands on the Fortnite map below:

There’s another safe hidden inside the building at the end of the pier, so you can visit that as well. Like with other Epic Quests, completing this challenge will award you 24,000 XP.

You can try completing the rest of the Epic Quests if you want to progress through the Battle Pass faster. There’s also a Legendary Quest available for a limited time period, so be sure to hop to it.
